Auntie pt 2

Being an Auntie is truely special. I’m not a mum, in a way I’m sure thats probably ‘better’ but there really is something so lovely about being an Auntie. For one you get to give them back!! (Something I always say but rarely want to do) you also get to be the fun one. The crazy one. The let’s eat cake at half 10 one. The ok, go on, one last time one. The sleepover queen. 

The one who these little people manage to wrap round their little finger no matter how hard you try to repell it (and let’s be honest you don’t try very hard!) 

This picture is what prompted me to write this post…

My three week old niece  and almost three year old nephew.

This photo fills me with equal amounts of pride and sadness.

Pride for that little boy that I met when he was barely an hour old, who I’m sure was only one yesterday! Being a beautiful big cousin to Evie-Mae, so caring and gentle.

But sadness because, I’m sure he was that small just a little while ago, they grow up so fast and until I had nieces and nephews I never quite realised just how fast. 

Everytime they achieve something I burst with pride for that little person but at the same time think, that’s another ‘First’ gone. But boy are we lucky to have those ‘firsts’! All those things we hope they’ll achieve and are so happy when they do.

I’m always sure to remember, with ‘firsts’ come ‘lasts’ so I read that story even though I’m tired (because I’m not used to running around after them all the time! Mums I don’t know how you do it!!) I treasure that sound when he runs to me and says ‘Ro Ro’ (A nickname I hope will have longevity, I can’t cope with the thought of not hearing that) those cuddles when he is tired or has fallen over and he just wants your comfort, or the dancing to fireman Sam round the lounge in your PJs.

Because in the blink of an eye he’ll be a big boy and Ro Ro’s not quite ready for that yet. Thank goodness for my other little ones.

Being an Auntie really has changed my life.

What do you love most about being am Auntie/Aunt/Uncle?

My day off!Β 

I love watching daily vlogs on Youtube so I thought I would do a blog post about my day!

Our school had a PD day on Friday which meant a 3 day weekend! YES!!

There was only one way to start that day, lazing in bed followed by a trip to the Tesco below our flat to pick up breakfast.

I’m loving that our Tesco now has a Costa coffee machine! Caramel latte all the way β˜•

I also picked up some sausages, eggs and mushrooms for breakfast πŸ˜‹

Delicious!

I spent the rest of the morning not doing very much and catching up on programmes that I had fallen behind with (4 weeks of Home & Away to watch πŸ™ˆ)

In the afternoon I walked into town to meet my sister Sarah and my nephews Noah & Casey.

We did a spot of Christmas shopping first…

It was the first time I had seen the Christmas lights on and it felt very christmassy.

After that we headed to the swimming pool. Noah & Casey both love swimming and I’ve only been once with Casey so it was nice to go in with him again β™‘

Little cutie! although his face says why have you laid me down here! πŸ™Š

After lots of splashing, floating, slide and wave machine fun we got out and once we were dressed we decided to head to Costa to warm up.

Me and Sarah both got our favourite festive drink, the mint hot chocolate.

I also got their lemon tart too, it’s so yummy and zingy.

Sarah tried their festive gingerbread muffin which has a cute iced gingerbread man on top…

A fun way to spend my day off and I love that I still have 2 days left before I’m back to work πŸ™†

P.s, I can’t not mention… IT’S A MONTH UNTIL CHRISTMAS #sorrynotsorry 

Until next time,

Bank holiday blogΒ 

So as you will know we had a bank holiday at the beginning of the week, a long weekend = happy Roseanne πŸ™‚ 

Here’s what I got up to..

Friday evening 

 Me & my sister Sarah went to a Crumble magic party. It’s the same premise as body shop parties just with Crumble magic products.

Crumble magic is one of Sarahs in laws business and the candles she makes smell incredible. They are essentially ‘creative candle scents’ 

I love candles & smellies so I was in heaven 😍 

My favourite scent that I picked up was the divine ‘Strawberry lemonade’ it smells lush and like real fizzy lemonade. I can’t wait to burn this one πŸ‘Œ

Check out Crumble magic on facebook or online here

Saturday

We had a chilled out Saturday which is always a winner. Tim was off to the football with my dad so I went to watch ‘The BFG’ at our local Cineworld. I have been wanting to see this for a while so before it went out of the cinema I thought I’d go. 

I really enjoyed the film, although it is definitely aimed more at children! (Big kid right here πŸ™Œ) It was a lovely representation of the book & funny too.

In the evening we went to our friends house for dinner & games. They have recently moved into their new place so it was lovely to see it & see how they are getting on with decorating. Their house is so lovely 🏑

Dinner was a delicious home cooked Shepards pie & afterwards we played a game of ‘Scotland Yard’.

All in all a great Saturday πŸ‘

Sunday

On Sunday we had a busy but fun day. We started off by taking part in the Bubble run at one of the local parks, the course is 5K and included bubble/foam stations along the way!

It was lots of fun! The run was in aid of St Elizabeth hospice, so it was nice to do a bit of good too πŸ™‚

At 6 we went to the new trampolining place that has opened on Cardinal Park, it’s called Flux.

We went here with Tim’s work friends and had a great time, it was a bit different & a fun way to exercise too. I can’t wait to go back!

Afterwards we all went to Nandos for dinner, always a winner with me πŸ“πŸ—

Monday

Monday was a lovely family day. My Auntie had come down to see this little fella…

This is Casey James Parker, my new nephewβ™‘  24.08.16 9.53am 8lb 10.5oz

He is a beauty & I was lucky enough to witness him come into the world.

Lots of cuddles all round πŸ™‚

We took Noah & Casey for a walk to the park in the afternoon & then stopped off for dinner at KFC on the way home. I havnt had it in ages so it was a nice treat & Noah certainly enjoyed himself…

I hope you all had a fab bank holiday, roll on the next one πŸ˜‰

Until next time,
