45: After my husband had spent all day in bed on Saturday, we'd both failed to get anything for each other for Valentine's Day so we all went out to one of our favourite nearby parks to blow the cobwebs away. It was freezing, do not let the sunshine deceive you!
46: First day of the half-term holidays and mum and I took the three cousins to the cinema to see the new Alvin & The Chipmunks film. Afterwards we came back and they had a good lay together with various toys.
47: I lied, my husband did give me something for Valentine's Day; his stomach bug! After having spent the previous evening with stomach cramps, the whole of Tuesday was spent either in bed or the bathroom. My husband had the decency to work from home to look after me, and my mum stepped in to look after The Boy! That evening I felt a lot better and sat downstairs on the sofa to start a new baby blanket for a colleague while watching NCIS; Gibbs and Dinozzo kept me company brilliantly.
48: I felt a lot better today so spent the day doing a variety of craft activities with The Boy to make up for yesterday! We're making bookmark buddies here.
49: The best day of the week, it was gloriously sunny! We popped up to see my jobshare (who is on maternity leave) and her two gorgeous children, then nipped to the beach for a bit of pebble-plopping fun. I managed to take a new photo for my header, but decided against this one where The Boy is falling over with the effort of throwing a rock; not good parenting to laugh at our children's accidents is it?
50: We nipped in to the cinema again today and saw Hotel Transylvannia 2 in the Odeon Kids' Club for £2.50 each! Never been before but what a bargain?! We continued with our Paddington sequin art; a joint effort that we're really enjoying.
51: I finished baby blanket that I started on Tuesday! I need to do the border but the main blanket is done. I think v-stitch may be my new favourite stitch!
