I have been an awful blogger of late!
Yesterday we had V day for Twinkle, 24 weeks! Whoop. We have decided on a name and are calling her by it. A bump photo from last week at 23 weeks
Charlie hasn’t had any more episodes since the one last week thank goodness. Hopefully it was a one off!
We re-homed one of our chickens, Bertha. She had got very very noisy for some reason, and we live in close proximity to several other houses and it was stressing me out. No one had complained…but I knew if I were them, it would be annoying me! She was squawking early in the morning and throughout the day. We made the decision to re-home her and advertised her for free on Sat morning. Within 2 hours of the advert going out, she was collected and gone 😦 It’s a bit gutting as she was our best layer as well.
We had an utterly crap camping weekend last week. It rained most of the time and was cold! The children struggled to go to sleep in the very light tent with us so close so it was very late bedtimes followed by 5.30am wake ups once it was light. This equalled very tired children who did nothing but fight and cry, taking it in turns, or both at the same time. Charlie was even whinging at one point whilst I was buying him an ice-cream! It was miserable. We shall go camping again later in the summer, and with better weather, and more company I am hoping it goes better next time!!
We did have a night day out by the seaside though, and it didn’t rain until we were headed home, so that is a positive to take from the weekend 🙂
Charlie decided this was a bit ‘tame’ and so livened it up a bit!
Rosa has become a bit naughty recently! I remember Charlie doing something similar, imaginative mischief. Rosa and Charlie were out playing in the garden, when I suddenly felt a jet of water hit the back of my neck! Rosa had sprayed the hosepipe INTO THE LIVING ROOM! Suffice to say, I was mad lol
The last week or so, Rosa has decided not to go straight to sleep for some reason. She isn’t crying or causing a fuss, but she is getting up to lots of mischief! She is going into other rooms upstairs and doing ‘stuff’ like emptying drawers, or squeezing out whole bottles of shampoo, playing with ear buds etc…. we keep going up and putting her back to bed, but she just gets up again and carries on with the mischief.
Stacy has fitted a stair-gate on her room. At first I said no! But actually it is for her own safety as she could hurt herself up there on her own unsupervised.
I doubt it will distress her. I think she will just keep the activities to her own room which is pretty safe.
Stacy got a promotion at work! It is a temp thing, and will end next March, but until then we have extra money each month which is really handy right now. She was also accepted onto a leadership scheme which will hopefully progress her career further. All exciting stuff….but it has meant that our maternity plans have had to change slightly. She is still going to have some time off, but more likely to be 4 months instead of 6.
We have had some great evening walks after Stacy gets home from walk in the warm summery weather.
And I shall leave you with some Charlieisms
Me: Rosa stop throwing food!
Charlie to Rosa: Go on, throw your food Rosa!
Me to Charlie: If you tell Rosa to do naughty things, that makes you naughty too…..
Charlie *singing*: ‘Rosa throw your food, throw your food, throw your food’
Me: Charlie, what did I JUST say?
Charlie: I’m not telling her, I’m singing to her…..
We have entered an era of collaboration. Rosa was asking for her dummy and I said no and put it up high where she couldn’t reach it. A few minutes later I heard Charlie say to Rosa,
‘Stay in there, don’t come out or Mummy will notice’
Went to investigate and found Rosa with her dummy in! Charlie had got it down for her. Naughty and sweet all at the same time.
