New

Hey readers,

My word of the week is:

because it is the new year, shiny and sparkly 2018! Happy new year to all my readers, let’s have a good one or just a week to get over the b***s**t!

I received as a present four tickets for me, hubby and the boys to go to the panatomine. Now, I haven’t been  before for a couple of reasons. 1. it is bloody expensive and 2. the times I thought about it was with my eldest but there was no way in hell he would spend ten minutes sitting down. He would be a nightmare and potentially run around everywhere.

So, this year we went to our local theatre and watched Cinderella (in all honesty I am envious that my mum who got me the tickets opted for herself tickets to see madness. I think she had the better deal of getting to seeing Madness tribute act. Which I am pretty sure both my kids would of enjoyed, lol).

Anyway, the boys still loved it as it was entertaining for them. Here is the thing that annoyed me when viewing the performance,  considering that it appeared that most of the audience was a younger then say 10 they said, ‘smash your face in’ and ‘stupid’ which I am not sure whether it was really appropriate, maybe it is, I don’t know. But for me I felt a bit uncomfortable that one of the actors said it to a six year old, now I have a six year old and lucky it wasn’t him because I  would not of been happy at all. Still, it was an experience and something different especially after the christmas climax.

Festive 

Hey readers,

My word of the week is:

because we have been to see Santa at his grotto and went on a sleigh ride which the children adored and got us all in a festive mood.

Of course there was the snow at the weekend which the boys absolutely loved playing snow ball fights.

Then on Monday there was a lot of icicles on our balcony and my son spend a large portion of his time that day exploring them and cutting them up and what not. Then later on that day we went to see the Coca Cola truck and the Christmas tree festival in one of the local churches.

My eldest received his second beaver badge which was all about collection and he had to give a talk. My eldest has no trouble talking especially when showing  of his dinosaur collection.

So, overall a pretty damn good week for me.

Beaver 

Hey readers,

My word of the week is:

Beaver
Because DS1 got chosen to look after the cuddly beaver all week from Scouts. So, we have been to Coombe Abbey (a beautiful park near where I live) on an adventure at the weekend to take some photos for Scouts. It was lovely to have a walk in the woods in Autumn, so many beautiful trees!

Of course at the weekend it was bonfire night and we saw so many beautiful, big fireworks. I love the colours, not so much the bang as I have sensitive ears. We had hot dogs,  I am glad we stayed at home as it was so blooming cold,  brrrr. We live up on 16th floor so  lucky to see all the fireworks. I do miss an actual bonfire, I just think they are beautiful to watch burning away, maybe one day we can when we move to a house, fingers crossed.

hope you have had a good week!

Fun 

Hey Readers,

My word of the week is:
because we have done same fun things during this week. We went to the cinema to see Paw Patrol, which made my son super happy, as he has been begging for ages. We went to the Showcase with there fancy recliner seats,  makes the experience so much more comfy.
For Halloween we visited a pumpkin patch and picked a MASSIVE pumpkin. Then we carved and the boys love it when it get lit every night with tea lights in. I think they are going be sad when we have to throw it away. The boys helped decorate the home with spooky decorations and the eldest went to a Halloween fancy dress.

Hope you had a fun week!
