Journalling reads: On Easter Monday we were finally able to have your egg hunt, we had to hold it inside the house thanks to the weather. You had a great time collecting the cardboard egg markers. It was very difficult to get any decent photos as you were racing around so quickly. You had found all the eggs in no time at all, and you begged to do it all again. So I sent you upstairs while I hid them and you spent the entire time shouting down to me “are you ready yet?”. We ended up doing the whole process 3 times. It was so cute to see the look of excitement on your face, as you came across the eggs hiding places and to watch as you missed really obvious ones, because of how fast you were running. I think the funniest thing about it all was that you had no interest at all in eating the eggs you had collected, only in looking for them! 24th March 2008.

Journalling reads: January 2010 saw the coldest temperatures and most snow fall in 30 years in the UK. Thanks to school closures because of the weather and you being sick, this was the only day that you actually went to school in 2 weeks. You only managed to go outside twice to play in it, The first was in the garden and Daddy forgot to take photos. The second was on the way home from the one day you went to school. You had a great time playing in the snow with Daddy. You made snowballs and a mini snowman. You threw snow at Daddy. You dragged your arm across the park fence and ended up with a soaking wet sleeve and gloves and you ate lots of snow (gross!). While the snow may look pretty and be fun to play in we were all kind of glad when it finally melted. It was nice to get back to normal and not have to wear layers of clothes just to stay warm inside the house!

Black Journalling reads: Sometimes I do crazy things that even astound me with the level of stupidity. Like when we decided to take the boys to a fireworks display at South Park and thought it would be a good idea to take Logan in the sling. I even remember standing there and saying, “I carry him around all day long how can a sling be much different.” Of course what i didn’t account for was the distance we had to walk, the sheer amount of people and the fact that most of them were ignorant students who didn’t look where they were going or the fact that the display started at least 30 minutes late.. By the time that it started I was hurting and we were cold and fed up. That’s when Logan decided that he was done with the sling, hated the dark oh yeah and fireworks that made loud bangs sucked. As you can guess we were kind of glad when it was over at least until we ended up waiting over an hour for a bus home!
White Journalling reads: LESSON LEARNT: NEXT TIME TAKE A PUSHCHAIR !! OR JUST MAKE DADDY WEAR THE SLING !!

Journalling reads: One of the first things we saw on our trip to the Natural History Museum was this awesome looking escalator. Described as “A giant metallic globe presides over Visions of Earth. Visitors can ride up through it to the upper galleries. Surrounding it the towering walls, adorned with a celestial map , put our planet in its heavenly context” You really wanted me to ride it with you, even though Daddy really wanted to ride it too, he let me go with you while he took Logan and the pushchair up in the lift. You were so excited but also nervous since like mummy you don’t really like heights. The view was amazing, but we were both glad to get off at the top after what seemed like a really long time. It was great timing as we got to the top just as Daddy and Logan stepped out of the lift. We were all eager to start looking at all of the exhibitions.

Journalling reads: This week has been really hard for all of us. I am still sick and I had my period so I was pretty miserable, Mark had to work every day, Lukas had two days off school because he wasn’t feeling very well and Logan appears to be getting more teeth. Tempers were very short and the boys made it worse by being awful to each other. I have lost count of the number of times I have told them to behave, be quiet and be nice. Some of the low points included telling Lukas off for hitting Logan on the head with a wooden skittle and Logan tipping coke in his hair. What really made this week suck was Ella being rushed into hospital. She had a really high fever and ended up spending 3 days having various tests before the doctors were able to diagnose pneumonia and a urine infection and discharge her with some oral antibiotics. She’s had pneumonia before so we were all really worried about her. I tried watching Glee for the first time and ended up spending a whole day watching season one!

Journalling reads: I started off the new year still sick, by the end of the week I was finally feeling a little bit more like myself. The boys have been enjoying playing with all of their Christmas presents. There are Megablocks on the floor constantly but they loving building with them and throwing them around the room. Logan has learnt a few new words, but he still won’t say Mummy. Lukas went back to school and for the 1st time in 24 years England won and retained the ashes in cricket, I hate cricket but Mark was excited about it.
