17: Lego has been a firm fixture in this house for a couple of years, but The Boy has never really shown much interest in creating from scratch, preferring a complete kit despite not then going on to play with it! However, about a week ago he decided that he wanted to make a hotel and has been working on it non-stop ever since, happily spending at least half an hour at a time on his construction.
18: Top Trumps after tea with The Boy's favourite set; London tourist attractions. He knows the details of every single card inside out and upside down!
19: I love how my sky blanket is working out, the variety of colours and stitches is beautiful!
20: A gorgeous peachy sunset tonight, saw a colourful row on my sky blanket!
21: I popped out with my mum to do a bit of shopping and we decided to head to a nearby pub-restaurant for lunch; battered halloumi with seasoned fries. This was the view from our table overlooking the Bristol Channel; a murky day but still beautiful nonetheless.
22: The Boy had a dreadful cough during the night, he sounded like a barking seal and was in so much pain with it and slept badly. I decided to keep him home, and we had a day of puzzles, cuddles and TLC.
23: I was bored today and wanted to do something, rather than hanging around the house on a grey day. We decided to head into Cardiff and treat ourselves to a Red Hot World Buffet lunch. I wanted to get The Boy some new underwear as well, and somehow we came home with a bit more than pants; two new pairs of shoes for me, some replacement Urban Decay eyeshadow (as I've lost my Naked 2 palette) and a brand new phone. I wasn't sure about upgrading to a Samsung Galaxy S6 but the saleswoman tempted me by telling me it had an f1.9 lens on the camera. All other techy details had gone right over my head up until that point, but my eyes lit up with glee and it cinched the deal!
