Project 365: Days 90 - 96

Day 90: Chocolate! - I never usually get an Easter egg all to myself but hubby surprised me with this massive Dairy Milk one.  Happy Easter to me.

Day 91: My boys - We went to my in-laws for lunch and an Easter egg hunt which the boys thoroughly enjoyed.  This is after they'd found (and eaten) their chocolate.

Day 92: More chocolate - there's just too much of it in the house.  I finished off this bag of mini eggs as I figured that the sooner it was eaten the better.  The problem is there's still lots more to eat.  Well, if I must.....

Day 93: LEGO - my oldest son has started following the instructions to build LEGO vehicles.  He's really good at it and follows the instructions perfectly.  He obviously takes after me.

Day 94: Shower - almost a year after ripping our old shower out we finally have a brand new one.  It's amazing.  

Day 95: Painting rocks - we had a bit of a craft day today.  The older boys did their homework ready to go back to school next week and then we painted some rocks and anything else the boys could get their hands on.  It was great fun.

Day 96: Pampering - I went on a spa day to my local hotel and had an eye treatment and a manicure.  It was bliss to sit there in peace, have a lovely lunch with a glass or two of wine, and a chat.  I feel very chilled out now.  Maybe I should do it more often.

Project 365: Days 83 - 89

Day 83: Party time - The boys went to a birthday party today.  We tend to have at least one most weekends since the oldest two started school.  They had a great time on the bouncy castle and in the ball pit, and my oldest was very pleased when he managed to throw a ball through the basketball hoop.

Day 84: Feed the birds - The first day of the Easter holiday and luckily the weather was dry, though very cold.  The boys decided to take some leftover bread out into the garden to feed the birds.  

Day 85: Photo opportunity - Here are my younger two laughing at being able to see themselves on my phone screen. They love having their photo taken.

Day 86: Coughing boy - Just 24 hours later and my baby boy is poorly again.  We had a bit of a rough night with coughing fits that ended with vomit.  There were lots of changes of clothes and we were all covered with towels.

Day 87: Biscuits - My little one was feeling a lot better today and he enjoyed his Easter Bunny biscuit.  I wish I could say that I'd made it myself but it came courtesy of Greggs.

Day 88: Hotel - Today we travelled to Slough to stay in the Premier Inn ready for our adventure in Legoland.  I was very impressed with the room and we all had a great night.  There were also the friendliest hotel staff that I have ever met.

Day 89: Legoland! - We spent the day at Legoland and had the most amazing time.  I'm going to write a post about it this week but here is a photo of the oldest two with Darth Vader.

Day One of the Easter holiday

I've survived the first day of the Easter holidays!  I stupidly booked the day off work, forgetting that I had all three boys at home and was unable to go out due to having my bathroom tiled.  I've got to admit I wasn't looking forward to it, especially as I haven’t been feeling very well lately, but it actually wasn't too bad.  I did get nagged a lot, and had to break up a few fights, plus the boys seem to want to constantly eat!  If they keep going at this rate I’m going to have to get one of those huge American fridge freezers to be able to house all the food they’ll need for the fortnight.

I have realised that I need to have a bit of a plan for the rest of the holidays if we’re all going to get through it in one piece.

Today, we did some arts and crafts and the boys enjoyed making cards and gluing shapes onto them.
We also had some left over bread so we decided to break it all up and put it out for the birds as they must be struggling in this cold weather.

They played a few car games, and then I did allow the older two an hour on the Wii while I did my ironing and watched Thomas the Tank Engine ‘Misty Island Rescue’ with the little one.  I quite enjoyed it, and it was very funny watching him sing and dance along to the music.

Their behaviour only really deteriorated close to bedtime, as it usually does, but thankfully their father came home and took over the bedtime routine.

I am working a couple of days over the holidays but I've still got a fair few to fill.  We’re off to LegoLand on Saturday, and will have an Easter egg hunt on Sunday, but I need ideas for the rest of the time.  Maybe a trip to the local adventure farm, and the park is an easy (and free) option.  I could probably do with a list of rainy day activities, as the forecast isn't looking too good for the week ahead. 

Have you got any plans for the Easter break?
