Happy Easter everyone

The weather is average, it’s another Bank Holiday 🙂

Elliot did a little Easter Egg Hunt this morning and almost got into the flow of it – he ended up wanting to see the “playground” more than finish off with the egg collection. 🙂

We then took him swimming at Grandmas and he has spent much of the afternoon playing out in the garden – the sun actually came out for a few hours this afternoon.

We ended up fighting with Elliot as he was v tired and didn’t want to come back inside – we ended up relenting and letting him have his “doo-doo” and “bye byes” to relax.  He ended up asking for his co-co and then to go to bed.  He was in bed by 6:30 and needed 2 stories from mummy and two from daddy – then he went to sleep in super quick time. Sleep tight little mouse….

Good Friday – already ! – oh, and Simon’s back from US trip #2

The great news was that Elliot didn’t ask about his presents when Simon got home this morning 🙂 Hopefully, this is the last US trip for a few months.

Vicky saw the midwife midweek this week, and it seems that little Oliver is getting the idea – he now appears to have his head in the right place and his body just needs to follow – although apparently this will be very painful for Vicky while he tries 🙁 The midwife has suggested that Oliver could arrive at anytime now, so Vicky has got their hospital bag packed ready to go.

We have been out today to an indoor play centre in Sheffield – Monkey Bizness is the name of the place.  It was big and Elliot loved it – so much so that he asked (after about 1 hour 15 mins) to go to Oliver’s house as he was tired 🙂   Vicky and Simon agreed that while it was nearer and a little bigger than the centre we went to over New Year with Jon, Vickii and Mia, the place in Doncaster is still slightly better 🙂

Simon is looking forward to some sleep tonight – he has flown over the Atlantic 4 times in just over 10 days – tiredness is definitely kicking in 🙁

Daddy’s home from a trip to the US – Elliot’s first and only question – “can I have my presents now?”

The little monkey was only interested in any presents that Daddy brought home from San Francisco 🙁  Very interesting that he remembered that there had been a promise of a potential present supply when daddy came home. Guess it will be even more interesting if he asks for his present(s) after daddy comes home from New York next Friday….. Daddy will have started something dangerous if he does ask….

Simon is feeling tired today – he flew back from San Francisco overnight and only got about 3 to four hours sleep.  He heads out to New York on Monday for 4 days.  That should then be it for a little while.

Handy, given that Oliver has turned transverse in Mummy’s tummy – means that he will have to come out by knife if he doesn’t get himself sorted out and into the right position soon. Might be having a designer birthday yet 🙂
