in order to get stuff done and to practice with different ways to carry him, this is how the morning was!

we spent a day with karen and the boys since jo had the first day off while we were over. the rest of the week was uneventful really as we had snow and rain and it was chilly! esther came for breakfast with me twice and dropped sarah off for the day on tuesday and then on thursday took me and the boys back to lisburn to go to charlie’s den, an indoor play centre. it was great and the boys loved it. especially as luke came and joined us eventually. we had lunch there then back to cleveley to just relax for us mommies. friday i went into belfast city with ezra as i had to go to get a new contact as mine was ripped. nana took the boys to see esther, simon and sarah. i went shopping for myself at next and just had a wee walk around. i then took the train to lisburn where simon picked us up.

saturday was the easter egg hunt at the farm (simon and esther’s). it was great fun with massive jacket potatoes and trimmings for lunch, then esther, jo and simon went to hide the eggs. but the boys were at the upstairs window and saw them!! too funny!
