Me and Mine {February 2015}

I'm all for not wishing your life away, but I am pretty glad that we've now reached the end of February, and the end of Winter.

It's been a pretty testing winter for us as a family really. We've had cold after cold after cough after ear infection after . . . well, you get the drift.  It's been quite hard to think up things to do on those cold, wet days when we really can't face the park.  So, I'm really looking forward to milder days and the promise of sunshine.

This month, these are the things we've enjoyed:
Getting Gelish manicures
Beautiful flowers for Valentine's Day
Updating my wardrobe for spring
Having lots of family time during half term
Ordering some lovely baby clothes
WBA getting though to the FA Cup semi-finals
Planning our kitchen extension
Free chocolate from Cadbury World
New jeans
Watching Wallace and Gromit and Shaun the Sheep episodes
Going to the cinema to watch Shaun the Sheep
Going ten-pin bowling for the first time
Having the pre-school bear stay over half-term
His new Angry Birds tops
The Cadabra ride at Cadbury World
Trying to get his Lamaze Giraffe toy into his mouth
Trying to roll over
Watching us eat at mealtimes
Seeing some real sunshine for the first time
Putting some weight on his feet
Playing in his new Jumperoo
My Me and Mine picture this month was taken during a lovely afternoon at Rosliston Forestry Centre.  We had a nice time exploring all of the different wooden sculptures and getting a bit of fresh air.

dear beautiful
