The Me and Mine Project {April 2017}

The Me and Mine Project {April 2017}

We started the month on the countdown to Easter and Olly was really pleased that he got two whole weeks off school. I was slightly jealous but loved having some time off myself and enjoying the long Bank Holiday weekend. April has been a busy month for us all (when aren’t they?) and we’ve managed to accomplish quite a lot and fit quite a bit in.

Me and Mine April 2017

In April Mummy has

  • loved having a few days off over the Easter holidays to spend some time with Olly and Daddy
  • enjoyed a wonderful Spa day with her Mom and Sister
  • been in awe of all the London Marathon runners as we watched them from the sidelines in the City
  • been really pleased with the progress of the new living room redecoration.. Did I mention I LOVE my new wallpaper??
  • enjoyed watching Big Little Lies, Prison Break and Line of Duty
  • loved having little weekends away with the family; we’ve been to Cheltenham and London

In April Olly has

  • enjoyed a day out at Legoland and loved being taller to go on more rides
  • loved plane spotting at the hotel opposite Heathrow airport on a recent trip to London
  • been to the dentist for his bi-annual check up and didn’t like it at all!
  • fed the ducks, geese and swans on a nature trail with Nanny Cooper, Aunty Toni, his cousin and Mummy
  • bravely held a newborn chick in pre-school
  • got into our first choice primary school for September (sob!)
  • met Mickey and Minnie Mouse at Disney on Ice in Birmingham

In April Daddy has

  • enjoyed his birthday and treated himself to the new Google Home
  • loved watching the Rugby at Ricoh Arena with Olly and Mummy watching Wasps versus Northampton Saints
  • passed his Postgraduate Certificate in Higher Education and Professional Practice (well done Daddy, we’re very proud of you!)
  • enjoyed helping Olly make his easter egg Mr Tickle for pre-school
  • loved seeing his mates for a curry and a catch up

Here’s a round up of our April from my iPhone camera roll;

April Me and Mine

May is destined to be another fantastic month. We have more weekends away planned, a celebrity football match supporting our local charity ‘Smile for Joel’, an Afternoon Tea to celebrate a friends 40th birthday, a wedding up north and the Blog On conference in Manchester. So much to look forward to, I can’t wait!

    I loved April with the Easter Holidays and having Alice home with us for 2 weeks. That’s great he got his school place, September will be here soon :-( x

    It sounds like you had a lovely month – Toby held a chick at nursery too, although I don’t think he was too sure about the idea! #MeandMineProject
