Hidden spinach & Daddy time

1) Turning frowns upside down Little boys (& I!) aren’t feeling tiptop today. It’s been quite hard with non-stop whining, but we did some creating & had a good time! It changed the mood of our afternoon and stopped us all getting grotty with each other. Think we will do more arty stuff together as we don’t get chance to do it often, & I’d like to encourage them all to have a go being a little more creative!

2)Daddy time Joby took Rocco out to a DIY store, & they had a good time! Rocco is what we affectionately call a “Daddy Magnet”! He’s not been feeling very great so he’s extra attached today, following him everywhere! They made a fire together & he ate his dinner on his lap!

3) Rainbow – found another little top that was passed down in Sylvie’s clothes. Forgot I’d had this & it’s not going to fit her much longer either, but it was lovely bright & cheery!

4) Hidden Spinach Joby made a smoothie for lunch & I persuaded him to let me stick a handful of spinach leaves in. Nobody was keen on the idea… But there was not a drop left! Big success! In his smoothie was a concoction of banana, frozen strawberries, sultanas, horlicks, honey, spinach, natural yoghurt & milk. Sounds odd.. Tasted amazing!

5) Willpower – First time since the 3rd I had felt like I missed popping on Facebook. Even the lure of needing Candy Crush lives was proving strong, but I resisted. Now, if I could apply this willpower to my diet, that would be great!

  1. Spinach in a smoothie is great, so healthy and you can sneak it in without telling the kids 😉
    Love the artwork the boys did!

  2. Well helloooo! Thanks for your pinterest comment, found your blog on there and so glad you linked to it! Have missed you since leaving FB, but see you’ve done the same! Its liberating even though you miss it a little at first. Full circle with the blog though!? Good for you…a proper diary for you to look back on in time, FB just not the same in that respect and your entries are so readable, you deserve a proper outlet. Gorgeous kidlet pics as ever! Love to you all xxx
