Another Happy Days week over, this month is flying isn’t it? I love the Happy Days Linky with Jenna and Katy. And because it ensures we are getting out I can also link with the lovely Fiona at Country Kids. I am so enjoying looking back and reflecting the weeks. This is going to be great to look back on in years to come. My own little weekly diary.
Out and About
We have been up to all sorts this week. Joe has had to start new riding lessons, his stables stopped offering public lessons, and he was so upset. However my friend recommended a new stable. We were so lucky that they could fit him in, and he loved it. It was very cold as it was an outdoor arena but the ladies were lovely and very professional. I just know he is going to love riding there.
We have had a fab time walking and sledging in the snow on Sunday afternoon. The snow is quite deep, perfect for sledging on those hills. It was breathtaking to walk amongst.
Poor Toby fell through some ice into a puddle, I had a feeling it was a bit unsafe as we walked round the edge of these huge puddles so put him on his lead. Thank goodness I did, as he didn’t have the sense to avoid the ice and fell through. It wasn’t deep, but very cold bless him. It was nothing a warm shower and a lovely snuggle in blankets couldn’t solve though.
Fun at Home
Wow we haven’t been home much this week, but this has to be Sunday afternoon chilling by the open fire. I made the boys hot chocolate and Chris and I had a nice glass of wine. I love lazy Sunday afternoons. Time to just relax and spend time together before the manic week ahead.
Oh I nearly forgot Saturday night too, I was meant to go out for my lovely friend Elizabeth’s birthday drinks. Then the snow came, and we were snowed in for the evening. I was so upset about missing a girly night out, but there is something magical about knowing you are snowed in isn’t there? It was so lucky that Chris and the boys managed to get home from the football, 20 minutes later they would have had to abandon the car and walk home.
Time for Me
Saturday afternoon when we arrive home from Leeds the Boys all rushed off to the football match and I stayed home by the fire. Do you know I did nothing; I just sat by the fire with a coffee reading and catching up on some of my favorite blogs. It was bliss.
My Happiest Moment
This has to be our family visit to the Queen’s Q Hotel, Leeds. They made us feel so special. The boys were greeted with rugby shirts with their names on for the Leeds Rhinos and the hotel have also arranged for us all to train with the Rhinos in the summer. They were so excited and felt to special. It was lovely to see how happy this wonderfully kind gesture, made them feel.
Next Week I Would Like Too…
Well, another exciting week next week. We are visiting Center Parcs in Nottingham and are so excited and the lovely people from Center Parcs have booked us in for the Ariel Challenge, this involves zip wiring over a river, eek I can’t wait. What I really need is go pro camera so I can film it, but that is not going to happen in the next week. So I need to work out a way to film it without loosing my I phone or camera.
