Happy Leap Year!
Today only comes round once every four years and I am taking a moment on this special day to take in all that’s around me in the happiest, most positive way. Last month, was a gloomy Me & Mine from us as so much wasn’t going right and that’s life it changes as fast as the wind direction. This month has been kinder, happier, and full of memorable moments.
The kids have never been busier with half term adventures to SeaLife, crafts and playdates at home, and Grandma coming to visit with us which saw us this weekend at Sandcastle Water Park and Blackpool Zoo. Mommy has never been happier with Grandma here for Mother’s Day, a trip to London and bonding with the kids. We have definitely been on the go more lately. I think the kids are always happier when we are out and about even if it’s just to the park or out front of our very house. They like to run wild and free and use up that high energy they both store up.
We often park hop around where we live and haven’t had the opportunity to do it in a long time due to illnesses and horrible weather conditions. As always, the week my mother arrives is always sunny. It’s quickly becoming a standing joke as it’s been eight years in a row like that for her. This year has been no different and the evenings are getting lighter too. Hurray! I keep saying she needs to move here and maybe the sun would stay out for us all the time.
We had a lovely family day out at a local park near us. The kids were giddy waiting to feed the ducks and Mr P and I were ever so excited to see blue skies above us. It was cold but we wrapped up warm as best we could to brave the wind. We spent the morning exploring the woodlands, feeding ducks and swans, and playing on the play park afterwards. I could see the kids brighten up as they do every time we come to this park. It’s our true happy place.

It’s been a very short quick month for February this year, and that’s what I love about February. We have so much to look forward to as Spring arrives and celebrations of Mother’s Day, Easter and my mother being with us for awhile. We have lots of mini weekend getaways planned in the coming months to share too. The kids are growing up so fast on me and time just seems to fly by faster as they grow.
