August Lookover Part One

1st - It's our Birthday week, Little Miss P's is on Thursday and mine is on Saturday, so the first week in August is pretty exciting. Mr P always has it off work for our birthdays and we normally do some fun things, and we are also going on a little holiday to Scotland.

4th - It was Little Miss P's birthday yesterday and we bought her tickets to see Wind and the Willows the Musical at the west end. It was absolutely fantastic (more detail in a blog post to come) and would 100% recommend it. We also went to Frankie & Benny's afterwards for dinner, when Little Miss P ordered her dessert she got a massive sparkler in it and the whole restaurant sang happy birthday to her. I think she loved it and loved the attention being on her for a couple of minutes.

14th - We have just got back from our holiday to Scotland, it was a very relaxing holiday. And even though it was in Scotland we did get some sunshine, even though it was raining back home. There will be a more detailed post about the holiday. We stayed in fourr different places and we drove up to Scotland which is about seven hours drive, so we split it into two days.  But now we are home it's the fun of doing loads of washing, going to the shops just to buy milk and bread to get us through that few days until our next shop.

17th - It's been a few days now that we have been back from our holiday and we seem to be working well as a family and things are in a bit of a better routine. All the little jobs that need doing go on a chalkboard. Mr P seems a lot more chilled out and not working as late at the moment, I think he's still in a bit of holiday mood.

We have also been meeting up with one of Little Miss P's friends from school which I think they are both enjoying.

Love

Loving at the moment

I used to love doing this sort of blog post, and I'm not entirely sure why I stopped doing them. I'm going to bring these back, where I just put five things that I am loving at the moment. I mainly enjoy doing his blog post so I can look back on them in the future and see what I was into.

1) First up is my Canon EOS 600D I have found love again for taking photos and using it to film and make memories. It's a great camera and takes great photos. I will be using it for our Holiday.

2) My Disney Experience. This is an app you get when you book a Disney holiday. I can't use the app properly because you book fast passes with it and they're not available yet. I am using it at the moment to keep an eye on how big the queues are for when I book the rides.

3) Beauty and the Beast Big sleeve. When you get a big sleeve DVD it kind of reminds me of how a vinyl disc would come. You get a Blu Ray DVD, a DVD bonus disc and exclusive art cards. I haven't even opened this yet as I got it for my birthday, but I am absolutely in love with it, it's just so beautiful.

4) Hot Tubs. Yes I know I'm saying hot tubs but when we were on holiday and had a hot tub it was absolutely luxurious. We were in it as much as we could on holiday, it is just so relaxing. Would love to have fun in one in the garden.

5) My laptop. It is not the most up-to-date laptop but it's my little laptop and I love it. It lets me write my blog, put my photos on it and it is pretty fast when it wants to be. I use it every day so I think it deserves and mention.

Love

We Booked Disney

Yes, I'm super excited we have booked Disney, not just any Disney trip we have booked Disney World in Florida. Yep next year will be jumping on a plane for an 8 hour trip across the ocean to the sunny world of Orlando. We have booked our Disney hotel and our tickets but we still need to book the flights. 

   We will be staying at Port Orleans Riverside, in a royal guest room where it is all done very princesses style. I thought Little Miss P would love this room and it's a special treat. She has done so well this year at school and even handling breaking her wrist really well. Didn't really moan at all other when it got itchy.   
 I have never stayed in that hotel before so I'm pretty excited about it, trying new experiences.
We have finally logged on to our Disney Experience online, it did take ages and I did have to ring them up twice to actually get it working but it is now finally working although I can't book anything yet. But it's nice having it on there ready.

I can't wait for the countdown to begin, and as I write this we have 252 days to go.

Love
Mrs P

July - Part Two


9th July - I have finally been told who it is that Little Miss P has for a Teacher next year and I am pretty surprised with who she's got, there were two teachers that I wanted her to get and that's Mr C or Mrs B because they both seemed like they would make a good teacher, and every time I walk past their class the class always seems happy and relaxed, but she has got her teacher from last year, Mrs F. I am really happy with that but I am a little surprised they've done that as they don't normally. At least the kids know her. And they know the way that works better for her, she knows the way they work.

20th July - It was Little Miss P's last day at school today, well last day in Year Four and I think she was pretty excited about it with 6 1/2 weeks off school now. That evening I went to a little work thing for a few hours. It wasn't much but I enjoyed it and I don't normally go to those sort of things. I just hope I didn't make a pratt of myself, and if I did I am not that worried as I don't hang out with them outside of work.

22nd July - I went for my first run, well half jog half run, and I actually really enjoyed it. Little Miss P came with me as she had to as I will not leave her on her own yet (she's too young for that) and I think Little Miss P really enjoyed it too. I will continue to do it over the summer holidays with her then when she's back to school I will do it on my own.

27th July - Well the weather has been pants for the first week of the school holiday so it has been about doing things with Little Miss P in the house. She wants to starts a YouTube channel all about Disney so I have helped her do that, she has done about four videos and it's not starting until September. We have been doing other little bits too, but it's been a nice chilled out week ready for a fun August.

Love
Mrs P
