May- Our month ahead

Seriously I can’t believe that it’s May already.
It feels like only a couple of weeks ago I was on holiday in sunny Florida but that was all the way back in January.

May looks to be a busy month for us, we have some exciting things happening.

New York

In just a few days I’ll be jetting off to New York with Danii for a fabulous girls holiday.
With so many things to see and do, I’ll probably need a holiday when I come home. Luckily I get home on a Tuesday morning. I will be able to pick C up from nursery and see her for a few house before she goes to stay at her dad’s that night (she doesn’t every Tue and Thu night), so I can get a decent nights sleep to recover.

The playhouse!

On Friday 13th ( yep, May has a Friday the 13th…unlucky or not?) C’s playhouse should be arriving. I really hope that it arrives in the morning, so it will be all set up for her coming home.
She is so excited about it coming and askes every morning ” Is my house here yet?”

We went to B&Q the other day to get top soil for sorting the garden and had a look at the paint for her house. She wanted yellow and pink so we bought Valspar paint samples in Dog rose and sun sparkles.

The main walls will be yellow and the door pink, I also need to get white for the trim and window.
Her house is going to look so cute, we are going to put her kitchen into there ( in the background on the picture) so all the colours will match.
I’ve also ordered a little picnic bench for her “patio”. My brother went a little OTT when making the foundation for her house so the simple “little” playhouse that we had planned is now a 7 foot by 6 foot house with a patio, white picket fence and picnic bench.

Yes some might say that my little miss is a little bit spoilt but she as is only tiny for a the shortest time I will spoilt her, she is my only baby so I will.

C’s new pen pal

When I was 5 I got a pen pal in Florida, USA. We wrote to each other, sent letter, parcels and videos, we even got to meet a couple of times and stayed in there house for a coupe of days on one of our first holidays in Florida. I loved talking to Andrea and it helped to teach me about different cultures as well.

I saw an offshoot page from a group I’m in on facebook and just knew that I needed to sign C up. It’s a page for people to get pen pals for their kids. I know that C is only 3 but she loves to get post and open things so I have signed her up and arranged for her to have a pen pal.

Until she learns to read and write she can send drawing and I can help her with the reading of anything. I think that it will really encourage her to learn more, she will try to write the letters in her name and things already. I believe that it’s never to early to encourage children to learn to read and write.

I’ll update you when we send and receive our 1st letters ( drawings)

Important events

Mum’s birthday is later this month so we will need to get some presents and arrange something very nice for her as she does so much for us.
