Our Thursday Photo #51

This week has been rather a busy one, even by my standards. Work has got a bit out of hand and I’ve found myself battling to keep up with it all. 

Despite this, we’ve managed to fit in our usual activities and a few extra ones and the girls have had a great week. 

The highlight for Libby was going to see her friend at one of her favourite places, Cob House near Worcester. They have a few farm animals there including some reindeer and alpacas. 

There are just enough animals for all of them to be exciting to see and feed. Even Lia fed a goat and a reindeer. This is a step forward for the girl who is always a bit reluctant to touch anything, even a leaf. 

I’ve had rather a good blogging week this week. I’ve been asked to work with a few fabulous brands. Today was particularly exciting, because I’ve been asked to be a brand ambassador for both Sea Life Birmingham and Drayton Manor

Both places have been kind enough to give us a family season ticket for the year. We will be using them A LOT. 

There will also be a competition in conjunction with the Sea Life Centre on my blog soon. 

I feel really honoured to work with all of the amazing brands that I’m working with on my blog, and I’m really enjoying the opportunities that blogging is offering us as a family. 

One of the best opportunities has been our Thursday photos. Each week, I sit down and reflect on the highlights of the week which is a great record to look back on. 

Even more than that though, I am loving looking back on all the photos. Next week will be week 52, because Lia is nearly a year old. 

One of the many things on my to-do list is to get my Thursday photos page in order. I also intend to print all the photos off, I just love the record of the two girls growing up together. 

Lia hasn’t been too well this week, she’s had a bit of a cold and now her eye is a bit infected, I think she’s got conjunctivitis so she’s not quite been herself. 

Despite this, she’s really come on this week and is now walking along really nicely just holding one hand. I think she’ll soon be walking by herself, as if life wasn’t chaotic enough already! 

And on that note, here is our Thursday photo #51.

    congratulations, that’s brilliant news 🙂 we love Sealife centres – visited the one in Brighton last week while Matt had an exam nearby and were really pleased they offered a fantastic home educator discount.

      Thank you Maz. That’s great that they do a home ed discount, I’m loving the fact that places seem to be embracing home ed these days. It’s still on our radar although not our preferred option.x

    What a sweet photo! That’s really exciting to get those brand ambassador roles. I’m sure you’ll have loads of fun with them! 🙂

      Thank you Sarah 🙂 We are all so excited, can’t wait to get back there, I think we’ll be heading to one of them for Lia’s birthday next week.x

    Hi Natalie, a little one walking independently may be a natural miles stone, but it’s a nightmare! Enjoy now whilst you still can!

    Congratulations on getting to work with Drayton Manor and Sea World.

    Your Thursday photo is really cute…I want a pink onesie like that!
