The kids and I had a busy day today, with lots of little treats and special adventures... we had a peek at the extension that the builders are just finishing off this week, we opened a stack of Mads' birthday presents and cheered over each one, we read our brand new picture books, and coloured in our new colouring books.
Afterwards we zoomed up the hill to find a present for a friend, and the kids helped me choose a birthday card and a card for my cousin's new baby, then had a scrummy lunch at Giraffe with friends. Afterwards they dressed up as fairies with pretty little dresses (even Danger Boy) at a friend's house and twirled around the room.
We skipped all the way back home, then had a lovely snuggle on the sofa to watch the beautiful Princess Tiana in The Princess and the Frog, and shared some toffee popcorn, a rare treat in our house!
Later, Danger Boy helped me make cheesy pasta, and set the table all by himself.
I was pretty pleased with myself, thinking this is the sort of day that the kids will remember forever.
