Our Thursday Photo #20

This week we have been deliberating and agonising over what to do about school for Libby. We don’t want her to go to the local school where we live at the moment, and this would be our catchment area. The only way to guarantee that she will get into a nice school is to move house. We love the house that we live in, it’s a great location, close to family and it’s just coming together as we want it. Ultimately though, the school that Libby goes to is too important to take a risk on, so we have reluctantly…

I’m struggling to believe that it’s Thursday again already, it only seems five minutes ago I was posting last week’s photo from my phone. We came home from our holiday on Monday, having all had a fabulous week. Libby’s speech is developing every day, and she is at a stage now where she generally talks perfect sense, so the odd word of utter nonsense or silly mistake can be really entertaining. Here are a few examples from this week: Libby: I want to go on the radiator. Dad: The radiator? Libby: Yes, I want to go on the radiator (points…

Things to do in Pembrokeshire with a baby and a toddler

Last week, we had a lovely camping holiday in Pembrokeshire. I always find it difficult to know quite what to do with the girls when we’re somewhere different, so I’m writing this in the hope that it might help someone else who pays a visit to the area with babies or young children. We stayed at a campsite in Manorbier, a ten minute walk from the beach. At Libby’s pace it was more of a 20  minute walk though, and if we’d had a buggy we’d have had no chance! The walk was through a beautiful wood and avoided the…

On time with my post today, but posting from my phone as we’re on holiday in sunny Pembrokeshire. Camping with two smalls is exceptionally hard work, but we are managing and enjoying the change of scenery. In particular, Libby has enjoyed the beach and a boat ride, hubby is enjoying being of work and spending time with the girls and the dogs are getting plenty of fresh air and walking. For me, I’ve loved the change of running scenery. I managed to run down to the beach yesterday, have a short swim across the cove and back and then run…

This week has been fabulous but insanely busy. I’ve had loads of work on from two different jobs, we’ve been back to Libby’s clubs in the mornings and we had a day out to Drayton Manor. This has meant me working until around 12.30 am most nights just trying to get my work done. Yesterday, my sister arranged for us all to catch up for afternoon tea after Libby had been to playgroup. We went to a lovely restaurant that only opened a few months ago and I’m addicted to it already. Libby was exhausted by the time we got…
