Its been too long since i did a blog so im making up for it!
January for me is always a really busy month. There are so many birthdays and we are still getting over Christmas. I always feel like the first week of January is a bit of a breather but I come back to realisation and life goes on and with it brings all the hectic and fun stuff!
Because of all the busyness I didn’t really blog as much as I would have liked, I had little notes of what I could write about but it just didn’t happen, some days I was just so rushed off my feet before I could even grab my computer my head was on the pillow. Some days I just don’t feel in the mood and that’s okay. I had also started back work in January (blog for another day) and I wanted to spend my time with Thea and Danny, grabbing my computer to blog was just not a priority at the time.
Today though my mum is entertaining Thea while Danny watches the rugby (WIN!) so here I am.
I did so many great things in January and February that i felt it was a bit of a shame to just brush over it, so I thought I would do a bit of a recap.
At the beginning of January we spent some time as a family going to the beautiful Bradgate park. This was especially lovely because Danny was still off work and I was yet to start work.
We also celebrated my 29th birthday! me and my brother spent some really great quality time together which we don’t usually get to do.
We had a couple of other birthdays too, one of them being my Brother In laws 21st and a few 1st birthdays too. We spent a weekend in Stamford celebrating little Olivia’s first birthday which was super lovely.
Here are some pictures from our little break, we stayed in an Airbnb called the ‘The Buttery‘. I would highly recommend! such a lovely and cosy place to stay and Julie the host was super accommodating, she knew we were bringing Thea and she had the high chair and travel cot set up for us and had some toys and books out, absolutely brilliant!
While in Stamford apart from Olivia’s birthday party we didn’t have any plans.
We decided to drive around and look for somewhere to eat. We came across a lovely place called the Golden Pheasant ran by 2 amazing hosts!
They were super lovely and friendly, the food was amazing and Kirstene who was our host (also runs the pub) was so lovely and gentle with Thea. nothing was too much for her. They have also been ranked number 1 pub restaurant in Peterborough!
If we go back to Stamford we will definitely be coming back to The Golden Pheasant!
We really enjoyed our time in Stamford and would love to go back in the future.
February was a special month for us, this was the month that Thea turned 1!
We had a joint birthday party with Joshua who is 1 day older than Thea and me and my friend Cheryl had been planning for months! We had a jungle themed party that involved lots of toys, a soft play area and a Baby Sensory party.
The big day came and we got in the hall early to set it all up. We were so excited!
The party was an absolute blast and all the kiddies had so much fun, there were no tears from Thea or Joshua and they really enjoyed themselves.
To end this brillaint month we went to Thomas land with Thea’s Godmother and a big group of friends. It was Thea’s first time at a theme park and she behaved so well. she loved the rides and was really well-behaved in the queues.
I didn’t know if she would like the rides as she had to sit next to me instead of on my knee but it didn’t bother her at all!
We have had a lovely beginning to the year and can’t wait for the fun to carry on.
Thank you friends and family for making it so special!
