The Little Brews at Butlins

We're back. It's been a while since the last blog post as I've found myself overwhelmed with returning to work and I started to lose a lot of confidence in blogging. But I took some time away and thought alot about it and decided I shouldn't care so much about what other people might think.Blogging is something I really enjoy and I'm so glad I've discovered the blogging community. It's full of some really nice and interesting people some of whom have been so welcoming and helpful since starting.

So we've recently had a short break to Butlins in Skegness Mon-Fri. We went with the In-laws and our  gorgeous Nephews. It was fun and  the kids loved it! Especially Zachary who was over the moon to see his favourite character on stage Tuesday morning! Thomas The Tank Engine  in the Big Top tent was a great show to watch.

We got up to so much during the week I decided to share a few of the best pictures taken.

 If anyone is considering break at a Butlins resort all of us would highly recommend it. Especially if you have young kids, there is no end of things to do no matter what the weather and the evening shows are fab. This year we watched Scooby Doo and Aladdin Rocks. Diversity are going to be there during the school holidays that would be amazing to see, but no more Butlins this year for us. Next stop Devon Cliffs!

The Little Brews Week 20/4/15-26/4/15

This week has been fairly quiet in The Little Brews household. Apart from our fab trip to Thomas Land we haven't done much else.
The Little Brews both had another settling in day at their new nursery. This time we left them for an hour. Zach got on great he's not overly bothered about leaving Mummy as soon as he sees other kids and toy's he's off without a second thought. Poppy cried at first but fell asleep about 10 minutes after I left her and was still asleep when I went back to pick her up. 

We've had a few accidents on the potty training front. One of which I never expected to be picking up of the living room floor. I am so thankful we have laminate flooring! I'm still super proud of how far he's come, Zach is a stubborn little sausage and will never do things he doesn't want to. 
We started trying to encourage Poppy to crawl this week. At first she starts rocking then her legs flop back down and she starts kicking them around like shes doing a front crawl. It's very cute, she seems happy enough just sitting and watching everyone.

Me and Gary went to see the new Avengers Age of Ultron this week with the Brother in-law and our Niece and Nephew! That was a good evening, has anyone else been to see it? I never used to be a fan of films like the Avengers. But since getting with Gary I wanted to make more of an effort to like some of the things he's into. I must admit I surprise myself sometimes and like things I never thought I would.

Has anyone else noticed an increase in the amount of dandelions in their gardens this week? Our lawn seems covered in weeds. We bought some cheap weed killer/lawn feed to try and tackle the problem but it doesn't seem to be doing the trick. In the past we had some stuff that left the grass with burnt patches. We definitely don't want to repeat that, but would still like to find a way to get rid of all these weeds!

Next week is my final week before I return to work. I'm feeling really anxious about leaving Poppy. When I returned after having Zach he was over 1 year so it didn't feel like he was a baby. This time Poppy will be 8 months , with so many more milestones for her to reach in this first year I just hope I don't miss them whilst I'm at work. I also hope I don't find it to difficult managing my time between work and being at home.

This weeks best buy!
I had a fab afternoon shopping and eating with a good friend of mine. We spent hours looking around the shops and all I came home with was a new jacket! But what a fab jacket it is, and to make it even better when I got to the till it came up as half price. I almost skipped out of the store!

Drayton Manor -Thomas Land April 2015

So recently  Zach has developed an obsession with Thomas the Tank Engine. It came from nowhere with no influence from me (for once). So we decided we would take a family trip down to Drayton Manor- Thomas Land to see what the hype was all about!
There was no doubt that Zach wouldn't love it. After all he's always reminding us that 'Thomas he's our number one!' (Thanks Milkshake).

We had such a fab fun day out at Drayton Manor Park and Thomas Land here are some of our best pics! 

10 Things I Have Loved This Month- April 2015

I'm finding it difficult to write '10 things I have loved this month'. Even though it has been filled with so much laughter, I'm finding it's overshadowed by the fact this is my last month before returning to work *cry, cry*. I'm going to miss my babies so much, I wish circumstances were different but needs must!
Anyway let's see if I can write this and it cheers me up (channeling some positivity).

Wicked Wednesday 22nd April 15

These clothes had to be washed separately as they were all victims of major POO explosions!! (Toddler and Baby!)
