Our Favourite Five – February

Another month gone! February saw my ear problems get progressively worse and the ENTS specialist sent me off to have an MRI to see if they could pinpoint the problem. Thankfully the scans came back clear,no growths or tumours to worry about which took a huge weight off my shoulders. I have high fluid pressure in my inner ear which has been causing tinnitus and vertigo so I am continuing to take my tablets and will see the specialist in a month’s time.

Here are our favourites this month:

1. M’s Birthday
M is now three years old! We took him to Pizza Express for a birthday dinner on the actual day of his birthday and had a small Thomas themed party. He was thoroughly spoilt with more trains and cars a boy of three could ever imagine. Our house it literally busting at the seams with toys now!

2. E’s first school disco

My biggest boy went to his very first school disco on the fFridaybefore half term. I went out and bought him a new shirt especially for the occasion. We had a bit of a mad dash to the hairdressers after school that day to get his haircut before rushing back home to get some dinner into him. It was so sweet seeing them all in the school hall. We teased him and asked what girls he kissed and his reply? “I DIDN’T!!!!!” lol


Just dropped this one off at his first ever school disco! #kidsofinstagram #schooldisco #heartbreaker #toocoolforschool #ootd

3. A trip to Claremont Gardens

We had a lovely walk around Claremont Gardens the day after M’s birthday party. The weather was a bit crisp but it was so nice seeing the children have a good run around. We saw hints of spring just around the corner too. We’ve had National Trust Passes for a while now but have not managed to make use of them. Hopefully, we’ll take more of an advantage of it as the weather gets warmer.


4. Bobux Play Launch
A couple of weeks ago we attended a Mothers Meeting event for the launch of Bobux Play. Luckily the event was on a Friday when I have my day off so M and I took the trip into London. M loves nothing more than a train ride so we had a lovely morning attending the launch and we were gifted these gorgeous cheetah shoes from the new range too. Don’t they look cute? He has been wearing them every day!


5. Orchard Toys Giant Railway
The boys have been playing with this non-stop since it arrived. It’s a giant railway puzzle and a bit like the wooden train tracks they have, it can be built into lots of different variations. The only problem is – they both like it so much it has created lots of arguments about who has what piece and where it should go!


That’s our favourites for February – what were yours?
