And so into April we go! The countdown is now officially on until a big birthday next month, I can’t believe my baby will be one. This time last year I was clinging to the last few weeks of working and thinking he’d be here any day. Little did I know he’d keep us waiting quite so long! I’m loving keeping a track of his weekly achievements and have decided at the end of the year to print these all out. The poor child can read my ramblings forever then.
This week we’ve been dealing with teething (him) and conjunctivitis (me), so we’ve all felt a little sorry for ourselves. Thankfully the beautiful weather has allowed us to have plenty of time out. We’ve had our first beach picnic of the year, explored the local cafes in the sun and spent a day out at Bicton Botanical Gardens – even if he did sleep through most of it!
The best bit of this week though has to be an unexpected quiet day on Friday. Usually our days together are jam packed to make up for being at work half the week. At the last minute, all plans got cancelled so we decided to take a walk down to the village park. We had the entire place to ourselves, so we had a play on the swings, a crawl in the grass and a makeshift picnic. It made me realise how rare it is we take an outing just us two, unless it’s to do boring jobs! I must change that!
