The second week of the Easter holidays has been another busy one, I've had both Oliver and Bonnie for three days and they have both slept over too.
On Tuesday we went for a lovely walk around Haden Hill park again, the house was closed this time and the ducks must have been fed a lot because they just weren't interested in our offerings at all but, the weather was better there was lovely blossom on the trees, an abundance of garlic and we heard a woodpecker, although we couldn't spot it.
It's become a tradition that I make the girls a cake on their birthday, Stevie had tagged me in a post on fb with a photo of a (professionally made) Battenburg cake a few weeks ago, saying 'this years birthday cake' Well, I had to have a go at making a copy cat one when the challenge was made!

Yesterday was Arty's 4th birthday. Because of the Easter holiday he had his party last Saturday with his friends from nursery. Jenny organised a forest school party at a local primary school for him.
All the kids seem to love forest school, they get to play in the dirty, build dens, hunt for bugs and generally have a great time getting dirty.
All Arty could talk about all week was his party and was really looking forward to it, unfortunately on the day he wasn't very well, he was sick just before and only played for a short while, his, daddy had to hold him while he slept for the rest of it.

I forgot to take photos of the socks and the stitching I completed in February, better late than never eh.
The socks have been sitting on the blockers since I finished them but I've put them on tonight as it's gone a bit nippy.

I took Arty out for the day yesterday, Jenny spends a lot of time on her own with the boys with James being away during the week, she had a few different errands to run and it's so much easier when you haven't got a toddler in tow.
After the warm sunny days we were celebrating last week mother nature decided she wasn't done with Winter just yet and the temperatures plummeted. We have had occasional flurries of snow with daytime temperatures or around 6 or 7°C and minus temps at night.
My granny always said you should never leave your vest off until May, ha, ha.
It was bright and sunny yesterday at least so we went for a walk around Haden Hill park, ( I've posted about Haden Hill before), the cold must have put people off because we virtually had the park to ourselves. I took a bag of bread to feed the ducks, there are two pools, one near the house and one in the parkland, the ducks couldn't get enough, some even came out of the water to make sure they got their share.
