Last week was a bad week. Got a bit of bad news from the police. Partner had a car crash. Train station staff refused me travel for over two hours in London so got home at bed time. Having a bad night, then one parent said “What’s wrong Julie?!” in the playground and I broke down and cried on her shoulder for an hour. Freya Woof got Tikka and the poor hen nearly died. Tail-less but mainly feather damage, with some nasty cuts and bruises. I’ve got 3 types of chicken medicines on the go right now trying to help her. I was convinced she’d go in her sleep on the first night, but she’s hanging on in there and has started nibbling on food. Anywho after a week of something going wrong every day I went to the park with Jen and Freya after school. I tied Freya to […]
The boys and Freya go for walkies along the woodland path very near home.
Its been hard to get my boys outside lately. Jen was unwell, it looked very much like it was scarlet fever but luckily the rash and temperature faded away. He was off of school 4 days, and hardly stepped outside the whole time. Except the trip to A&E, the silly lad swallowed a metal marble from Mouse Trap board game! Any way … Some outside photos of the boys…
My lad D loves Freya Woof. He loves it more when we can play without other dogs nearby. This kids park is unusual, dogs are allowed in on leads. These photos were taken just before Christmas but I forgot to blog them. In my opinion you can see a loving bond between Freya and D. I loves them both <3
I thought I’d share some photos I took of Jen in a park playing rugby. In each of these photos there is a ball, honestly! Can you find them?
Today was pretty much the last straw. A child I’ll called Jamie (because it’s the only unisex name I can think of right now) follows my sons and I everywhere. It’s not just following, Jamie bosses us around, *do this, I want to do that, put my on the ride*. Sounds ok, now imagine you’ve waited ten minutes for both swings to be empty because your youngest wants to “race mummy on the swings” and the second we sit down Jamie appears “my turn.” trying my very best to stay calm I say “My son and me are playing, please wait” so Jamie just asks again and again and a-flipping-gain! I have to walk away, we go to a different toy, a climbing wall. Guess what, yup! Jamie tries to push in and tells me “lift me up” so I suggest to my lad we do the zip wire, yes, […]
Last week Jen and I went to the park for a picnic… thing is I had promised him a trip to the big park (pittville park in Cheltenham) and as luck would have it it was freezing, about minus 4 degrees on my day off. Still, a promise had been made, it took 2 buses and over an hour but he had fun. We had ourselves a picnic in the park, sitting in the drivers cab of the toy train we had sausage rolls, frubes, fruit muffins and some fresh mushrooms (he eats those instead of fruit). Then we had a bit of a play, pushing on the swings and the usual sort of stuff. At the top of the park are a few large animal cages. We went to say hello to the bunnies, peacocks, chickens, budgies and chipmunks. Jen was keen on those “stripey squirrels”, then we went […]
