At the moment has been busy with a capital “B”. What with nursery for Max, swimming classes for Kai then a cheeky afternoon go to to Christmas Tree Farm to go to the animals.

Friday afternoons are usually spent simply chilling at dwelling. The day begins very early on a Friday and we are likely to roll away from bed and out of the door to get Max to class on time.

That is no simple feat, Max usually wakes at round 07.30 am so it’s actually all fingers on deck. We usually stroll to high school but when the weathers dangerous or it’s the varsity holidays then we take the automobile. A few of our greatest chats are on the way in which to high school, for a person with little legs it doesn’t take too lengthy to stroll. The secret’s to maintain your child distracted then they overlook all about how drained they’re or desirous to be picked up once they get tired of strolling.

Nursery continues to be so hit or miss at drop off, sometimes he’ll go in no drawback however these days, most of the time he’s tremendous clingy. It’s one thing we’re working via and each week it will get a bit of simpler (for each of us). 

We haven’t the time to hold round at nursery as a result of it’s again dwelling breakie for Kai and a fast energy nap for him earlier than we boot off to swimming classes.

I didn’t trouble with classes with Max, to be trustworthy, they appeared so bloody costly. I discovered an inexpensive leisure centre for classes for Kai. Now we have been going for round 10 weeks now. He has a lot confidence within the water now, I can see this each within the pool and funnily sufficient within the bathtub as nicely. 

I actually actually want I had gone via with classes for Max, we had been form of caught between a rock and a tough place with him. Clearly, cash performed an enormous half in our choice but in addition Max had a couple of well being points which made swimming not likely a really perfect choice.

This afternoon we visited a extremely beautiful native farm ” Christmas Tree Farm” located within the village of Downe which is located on the finish of a lot of winding nation roads, it’s an incredible place for the children to get out, be round nature and feed some animals. Each of the boys completely adored it, I feel Kai was gutted he couldn’t get out of the pram and run about together with his older brother.

Priced at £4.00 for adults and £2.00 for 2- 16 it truly is an inexpensive strategy to kill a while within the afternoon. In addition they promote feed at £1.50 a bucket and you’ll be able to feed the array of animals residing on the farm.

The draw back to the farm is that you just aren’t allowed to absorb your personal picnics, they do have a restaurant model kitchen on website and the meals will not be unreasonably priced. We ate earlier than we got here out however I handled the boys to a muffin and a few banana bread.

We adore it there and can most undoubtedly be again earlier than summer time is over, which judging by the climate just lately will likely be sooner quite than later.
