Happy List 16 – Slimbridge, friends, bank holiday family time

Happy List

This week really has disappeared, but we’ve had some lovely moments and enjoyed that extra bank holiday family day. 

 1. Park 

We had a lovely time at the park on bank holiday Monday, it’s so much easier now Toddler H can do the steps safely herself. Thank you growth spurt!


2. Swimming

It was the last in or course of swimming lessons – that’s Toddler  H done her 10th course with Waterbabies and absolutely loves it. She tells us all week how she likes “swimming on my own” – it’s such a shame she’ll have to miss some when baby comes. 


3. Painting

We were taking part in National Stationary Week and as we were sick were a day behind. Anyway H loved her painting and is continued this week – I love it too as H concentrates so hard and really is nice and peaceful!



4. Coffee 

We met our friend and her daughter for a much needed coffee this week. It was lovely and Toddler H loves her daughter, and was even eager to share her food… not ideal with a 9 month old, but so cute!


5. Slimbridge with friends

We ventured to Slimbridge yesterday with our NCT friends, they toddlers all had a ball, the soft play, ducks, flamingoes and welly boot land were huge hits. Not only that they all mapped on the way home, which makes it a huge winner in my book! 

We’ll definitely meet them there again! 


6. Dreamgenii pregnancy support pillow

I’ve been using my Dreamgenii for a few weeks now and although I wake with occasionally sore hips, I’m definitely sleeping better… 

If only it helped with the umpteen toilet trips a night!


7. Litecup

We received a Litecup this week for toddler H and although she’s been funny at going to sleep most of the week it’s lovely she’s not wanting to use her cup as a soother to go to sleep. Review and giveaway coming next week.


We’ll hopefully have a patio for our table and chairs to go back on by the end of the weekend, and a room almost tidied for baby… fingers crossed! Have a lovely week,


Lynne X

    My aunt used to work at Slimbridge so I remember visiting her there! My son loves swimming lessons and I’m signing Katie up from September. She used to go to Waterbabies when she was very little and loved it XX #happydayslinky

    Sounds like a lovely week, my youngest would love anything that involved a welly boot land!

    A busy sounding week with one thing or another. I used a similar pregnancy pillow and found it did help me get more comfy and therefore sleep much better! #happydayslinky
