    Heat Wave

    Its been a scorcher! Everyone's been bad with hayfever but made most of weather so far, trips to the park & playing in garden. Unfortunately my biscuits are starting to melt in the barrel, meaning there's only one thing - to eat em all muahaha! Cracking storm last night too!
  3. Thanks for all replies, I appreciate the heads up on a lot of things! I'm usually ok planning trips to coastal villages/cities, but there just seems so much to do in london for our three days. I'm mostly looking forward to quality time with the other half, it's been two years since we've spent proper time together without little ones and even then it's only been a few hours
  4. We was hoping to go as we go most years, didn't fancy chancing the pushchair on the soggy field. Which is a shame because it seemed like a right little nottstalgian meet up! I ended up giving the fishtank a good clean and water change and chasing an escaped (ours) rabbit around the garden! Eventful.
  5. I forgot about the natural history museum! The eye and tausards are two things we both want to do, so might do that on the Sunday before heading home. We'll be arriving Friday midday so I think a restaurant and a few drinks is on the cards & a walk around. It seems such a magical place with all this history, i have a feeling I'm going to be in complete awe of the place! Definitely going to visit some of the free things, I love art and history. I did wonder how the secret room thing worked, I felt abit dodgey about not knowing what hotel it was when I looked last night, but thankfully someone's explained it!
  6. Ooh I'll be sure to visit those, especially Camden market! We were planning on booking at the last minute as its what he did when working away and got good deals. Hoping I can visit my dads hostel while there too to meet the people who helped him in his final few years and where he lived, I'm sure it'll be very bitter sweet. Can't wait!
  7. Believe it or not, iv been many of places but never london! iv been once with school to the dome in 2000 but no where else. We've decided to go for a 'romantic' weekend there for the fact it has a lot to see and do, were stopping two nights and 3 days, thinking about getting the ticket for £55 that entitles us to four major attractions - the eye, dungeons, tausards and the sea life centre. Will we be able to do all four in a weekend? I'm also after some nice hotel or b&b suggestions, everywhere seems very pricey but we're willing to spend upto £200 for somewhere nice (were treating ourselves after all) and also some nice places for food and a few drinks. Some must see places would be appreciated too! My partner has worked in London and visited briefly but never done anything touristy! Thanks guys
  8. I wouldn't say family life is boring, far from it. But the whole doing everything at the same time, every day being predictable is the boring part. Bringing up the children is a blessing, and trust me, I feel extremely lucky to have them each and every day, even if my eldest is currently acting like the spawn of the devil but we are trying with her, but at her age she's had alot of changes to deal with this year - starting preschool, a new baby sister, tired parents when she was used to us being full of energy. I just wondered if it was the same for all families, the predictable days etc or if it was a habit Wed just gotten our selves into. To break it up a little, we've decided to go on a long weekend together while the kids stay with grandparents, although I feel guilty and a little selfish for it, I'm welcoming the break even if it's only for two days! - I can't wait for an alcoholic beverage and to nosey around some shops without having to turn around and ask someone to behave or be nice
  9. I think something might go wrong, sending a 3 year old into school with vodka! Haha!
  10. Don't get me wrong, I love it! There's nothing more precious than bringing up children. we do things in the day - paddling pool when its hot, lunch in the garden, lots of arts and crafts, silly games, days out at the weekend. It's just when I wake up in the morning, I already know how my day is going to go and our evenings. Friends are always busy with work or their children, I have one friend who also has two kids, we rarely see each other but when we do we go for some drinks or bingo. Our routine may be boring at times, but I'm sure I'd be lost without it! Even on holidays it takes a day or two to adjust.
  11. Yeah it unfortunately has been gutted by a recent fire, the progress looks good from the updates iv seen on the Facebook. Original manager left when I was off on sick leave... I haven't met my new manager, going back after maternity leave will be fun with all the changes! Apparently they're aiming to open in July.
  12. When our mum's would send us to school with crisps during snack time. I remember the monster munch that turned peoples mouth blue! Now I'm not allowed to send my daughter to school with a snack, and if I must send a drink, it HAS to be water!
  13. Complicated. ...what female isnt? :D
  14. Tell me, is it what happens when you finally grow up and have children of your own? It seems now we wake up, my partner will take our eldest to school and go to work. I'll have breakfast, get baby sorted, do housework, go to the shops and then collect eldest. Come home, do lunch, clean again, play for abit, tidy... Then dinner time rolls around and it's cook, tidy, eldest goes to bed and were both tidying, washing up, washing and sterilizing bottles and I can almost bet that every evening well be sat down with a tea watching tv by half 9. By 10 I'm usually fast off! Me and my other half were just talking about it, we both said is this it? We can't only be the ones with the most boring routine? Although, it's boring, I do love it in a strange sort of way! but I also can't wait to get a break, get out. we've not been oout in almost two years!
