Family & Days Out

Our Christmas Break

We’ve had a lovely couple of weeks here. It’s been great having Boo at home from school, and the Husband’s only had to work for a few days over the fortnight, too, so we’ve had plenty of family time. I’ve also taken a fair bit of time off from blogging, which has been nice. Christmas was fun, and then we’ve had lots of leisurely days, playing with toys, watching movies, seeing family and browsing round the shops. Little Man has delighted in having his big sister around all the time, and so there have been endless giggles. And why play with the many, many new toys available, when you can just run up and down the hallway chasing each other or dance around the kitchen?! There’s been a lot of time spent doing that! But one gift in particular stands out as being popular so far…

The scooter. Boo had a Micro Scooter for her birthday and they’ve both loved playing on it, so it seemed the obvious choice to buy Little Man his own for Christmas. We made the right decision, it seems, as he loves it! We got him the blue one with the orange brake, as it’s the same one that one of his very favourite characters has, so it was fortunate that it did actually exist!

They’d been scooting through the house for days, when we decided to actually get them outside with them! They loved it, with Boo taking off straight away, though Little Man had a few difficulties negotiating cambers and mud, which he’d not encountered before on the floors of our home!

But once he got the hang of it, they were off together…

I can see many weekends being spent like this from now on, and that’s absolutely fine with me. They’re happy, the park’s only a few minutes away and absolutely beautiful, and fresh air and exercise suits us all!

Hope you’ve had a good time, too? All back to normal on Monday, but until then, I’ll savour this weekend…
