Where have I been I hear you wonder (not really hah) and frankly these few weeks have been mad, so I feel the need to update you on what has been going on in the life of Mummy Cat and her kittens.
Firstly we have all been under the weather, on Friday 13th I woke up absolutely full of cold, I was so ill that I even got Mr S to do the afternoon school run, I wanted to basically sleep and do nothing else and thankfully the children when they came home helped big time with everything but nothing could prepare us for what was going to happen on the Tuesday 16th, everyone went to bed as planned and all seemed happy to get to bed, no fuss and no arguments however about an hour into sleep there was this coughing and wet sound coming from our bedroom.. Robin threw up and my god it was gross as she had a full bottle of milk before going to bed so it was just horrible, which began a full week of sick children and naturally sick mummy and daddy followed suit and we all spent a lot of time that week hiding inside and feeling very VERY sorry for ourselves.
On the Saturday 14th however, despite the cold I was suffering with there was a plan in motion to get all of us over to Birmingham to meet up with the wonderful BC April babies once again, it was the one year anniversary meet up that I have been so excited for since it was booked up! the plan was to meet at the same place as we met before the ThinkTank, have some lunch and let the babies explore and go wild, this time however we went by car so my anxiety over the train was not even there and I felt so much better going in the car, Mr S drove us and I think it took us a good hour and a half to get there but it honestly was such a nice smooth drive up on the motorway.
Once we arrived we got to paying and then it was the hunt to find some of my BC April girls, there wasn’t as many as there was the last time we did this, which was sad but I think it was a lot better, I felt like I could talk to those who had turned up and it felt a lot more relaxed but the children had a blast running around and playing in the water, and I really loved catching up with the ladies and just seeing them enjoy their time in the water and all the wonderful interactive parts that are all over the ThinkTank, I still highly recommend you go to it at some point in the future as its so much fun for all the ages and there is a lovely area for the younger children to play with fake food and learn things about their surroundings.
Here’s a couple of photos that I took of the day –
I had planned to vlog the day but I got so caught up into the fun that the only footage I have is of us going up the M1 and some clips of windmills, I don’t think I am cut out for vlogging just yet haha, I enjoy taking photos more and I guess getting them into Lightroom and editing them up to look clear and pretty, and as I said before, if you ever get a chance to go to Birmingham I highly recommend you give the ThinkTank a go, it was such a fun day for everyone and with the water, no one really got to hot.
I have some more adventures to share with you shortly of our first family holiday but that will have to wait for another post, for now its lovely to be back into blogging after having such a long time off either being sick or being away.
How has the start of the summer holiday been for you?
until next time
