I don't have many photos from this morning, we walked into town because I had a few jobs to do. The reality is that I often need to take the children with me for mornings like this and summer is no different so we went to the bank, bought some cards that were needed, went to the chemist and went to the bed shop to complain about the bunk beds that have broken after less than a month of use!
Let's be serious, times like this need to happen but they're really aren't fun for the girls so we took them to a shop to get a milkshake and Grandma (who is a big softie) bought them a cake to share!
I try and let both girls stamp around in the shopping centre if it's not too busy as that helps tire them out a bit and stops them getting bored quite so quickly. I also take a packed lunch so that if things take longer I can provide some food which normally buys me about half an hour before I really need to give up and come home.
There was a quick pit stop in Tesco because this pregnant Mummy can only go so long without a loo break so the girls were left with Grandma and when I got back they had been furnished with a Peppa and My Little Ponies magazine each. The girls have been looking at them almost all afternoon, in fact so nicely that I got to sneak off for a wee nap (while Grandma supervised the girls)!
Anyway, enough talking, the rest of our day has included banana loaf (follow the link for a recipe)
Playing in the garden (although as I went to take a photo the rain came on so this photo is from another day, such a cheating blogger!)
I've also just discovered that while I was sleeping N made this with her Grandma
Finally, the girls got to taste some of our home grown vegetables today! We have spent a reasonable amount of time with the girls planting and watering, here are some pictures from along the way and one of N being proud of her spoils!
