We were on a break, a blogging break.
My Mum was here for her annual visit and I didn't want to spend all of it behind a laptop, although when she wanted to read her book...
So what happened while we were (mostly) offline?
We had some birthdays. Cash was two, then Andy was, erm, 29 again and then Presley was three. They still haven't opened all their presents!
Presley took his first photographs, I think Andy helped a little setting this one up.
We walked on the beach in some beautiful September sunshine.
We made sandcastles.
We sat in holes.
We went to Ikea. It was a rather successful trip. We got there as it opened, bought everything on our list, ate meatballs and left the tea-lights alone. We bought the boys one of these gorgeous quilts each, the photograph really doesn't do it justice.
We said goodbye to baby curls as Cash had his first haircut.
We got new jobs. We're Toys R Us Toyologists. Toys R Us have recruited forty families from around the UK, known for their online presence, to review toys. This lot was in the first box. We won't keep all of the toys. We'll be holding Toyologist tea parties where toys will be put through their paces in toddler groups, hospitals and children's homes. Reviews to follow...
... Speaking of reviews.
I've started a new blog.
From now on I'll be posting all reviews on a dedicated reviews blog called...
I think we're almost up to date now.
Mum left yesterday and gets home tomorrow! She lives a long way away and is having a stopover in Singapore to break up the journey.
We've all had colds and one or other of the boys has vomited every day and night since Sunday - yes, another bug. I spent most of the day today on the sofa with two poorly boys, covered in towels (just in case). I'm tired.
Presley missed his first day at nursery today too.
Hey ho. I'm off to apologise yet again to the washing machine.
