It’s been such a good day. We randomly decided to go to the park & have a picnic, a picnic wouldn’t be a picnic unless it was a dominoes picnic so the plan was in order & soon to be was our lunch! I got the food sorted & Phil washed & dressed the little ones. Taking ages to get to the bus stop because of Alfie’s slow walking we thought we’d be waiting ages in the hot sun but just as we arrived so did a bus! & luckily the cheaper one, i’m a scrooge. Alfie did his usual bus commentary of where all the train lines are & pointing out buses.

We arrived at Dominos just in time for when we said we would, 1:45, the food smelt

Imagedelicious, we asked to have some BBQ sauce instead of all the garlic, he swapped them & then handed us the most sauce iv’e ever had for free & would of cost us a fortune as its 3 tubs for £1 or something like that. Phil thought all his dreams had come at once! haha,

hes addicted to that sauce, I don’t blame him even I love it.

We took our food & headed to the park, the sun was shining so brightly, it was really a beautiful day & beats all the snow we’ve had recently, we found a nice spot & dished out the food, we had ordered enough for about 6 people, but  because we got so many freebies, we thought we could just eat what we didn’t eat later or the next day, it seemed worth it.

Alfie & Miley we’re both shockingly so well behaved normally when we eat Miley cries

Imagefor some & Alfies shouting or running about! They’re not naughty but we never seem to get to eat in peace! but they both sat down so nice & ate their food, they seemed really pleased with the food, as was Phil! & Alfie actually didnt mind that Miley was sat next to him, although she did try to steal his food! but I shared mine with her to keep her pretty little face smiling! It shows how much I love her that I shared my mozzarella sticks with her, even though she dropped it on the grass!

Alfie was the first to finish his food, he’s a picky

eater but even for him he ate a lot & while Phil was eating his chicken wings, Alfie decided to go & run around a tree for a bit & hide, meanwhile I was started to get stuffed too, i’d eaten quite a lot! & was starting to get a bit chilly, I put Miley in her pram so she could enjoy a bottle while I packed up all the rubbish & waited for Phil to finish his food, Phil is a really slow eater he likes to let his food digest & although eats bit portions takes absolutely forever! I asked

Alfie to help me with the rubbish but he seemed enjoying looking through the gaps in the bin saying “I can see you!” but then sadly, put his mouth on the bin & had to be moved!

The park was absolutely packed out as usual & there was kids everywhere!

Normally when places are busy Alfie gets shy but he was straight in there wanting to play & Miley got to play on the swings, which she loved. The sun got a bit too much for moo & her cheeks started turning red so me & her sat on a bench & watched Alfie & Phil play,

Imagethey even had a race back to me & Alfie was giggling his head off running after Phil, they both sat next to me on the bench & we’re acting silly.

Although it was only 3:30 we decided to head home, Alfie walks around town & no longer requires a pram but I didn’t want his feet getting tired & him wanting to be carried.

I decided on the bus to go see my Grandad as he was feeling unwell, Phil headed home as he had things to do. We knocked on the door & walked in, my mum quickly shouted “Hello!”

Imagewhich Alfie replied “Hiya baby!” it was really cute. My Grandad seemed pleased to see me & he gave Miley lots of snuggles, he tried to lift her & although his speech isn’t too well anymore he managed to say “Jesus Christ!” because she’s so big & heavy for her age! I got lots of beautiful photos of Miley with my Grandad, It means a lot to me as my Grandad is very important to me, & I can’t wait to print them out to show him. I hope he gets well soon!

I then spent the rest of the afternoon with my 23 year old brother who says “hash tag” in most sentences, lame but kinda funny!

I headed home about 6:30 & Phil was doing some washing,

I got Alfies tea & he wanted to watch trains on YouTube  while he was doing that Phil & Meatball headed to the shop to get Alfie juice, Alfie screamed

“Where Bill?, where doggy?, Oh no!” I reassured him they were coming back, so he gave Miley a kiss, brushed his teeth & got snug in bed. Phil came back, got Miley ready for bed & I tucked her in while Alfie snored his head off.

My night got better when The Killers Live came on TV, I’ve seen them live, but even on TV it’s just as much enjoyable. Phil came down & said he’d changed Alfie’s nappy, apparently Alfie woke up & said “sorry” to which Phil replied “it’s okay buddy?” & went to stroke his head, before he could do so Alfie grabbed his hand, shook it & said “How do you do?” it makes me so proud that my little lambs are growing & developing so beautifully.

My day is now ending perfectly, Taken 1 is on in the background & i’m going to play Left For

Dead 2 with Phil. Perfect!

Moo poo.

Trying to blog whilst holding your 5 month old daughter is hard, its not the typing with one hand, nor is she attacking the laptop, its more the fact she keeps staring right at me & smiling, it’s slightly distracting.

In fact I wrote those 3 lines & had to stop as she had leaked through her nappy onto her sleep suit, which meant I had to clean her all up & while Phil was ironing her new Pajamas I got plenty of cuddles with my Miley, who proceeded to nom my nose & smile a lot… as usual, as Miley is quite literally the happiest baby in the world, she never cries! unless you make her wait for a bottle, like if you’re making one up fresh.

I can only assume that shes building up all her anger & sadness for The Terrible Twos! Which seems to be what Alfie has been going through recently, he was really bad about 4 months ago, when I first had Miley he became very naughty & had a lot of tantrums, he’s not near as bad now, we can actually now take him places! & he’s growing up very quickly, he is a bit behind with his speech but he will be attending speech therapy soon which I think will be great as he gets frustrated not being able to communicate but being able to do everything else!

So because I love my babies so much, I have bought them lot’s of lovely things for Christmas & i’m hoping this is going to be the best Christmas ever! I can’t wait for them to open their toys & although only Alfie will really appreciate them, I hope Miley likes her’s too!

I’m also hoping that after Christmas I could get a part time job, nothing special & not too many hours but enough to get me out the house & get a social life as such.

20121211-085335 PM.jpgAs much as I love being a stay at home Mum, while Phils off out at work, I feel like people think i’m a bum who sits & watches Jeremy Kyle all day, which couldn’t be further from the truth! When Phil is home we do watch Tv/Films etc & go on family days out, but when i’m home alone I tend to get a bit lost & just clean & cook & go into Mummy mode, spending the day cleaning nappies, saying “BOO!” over & over to Miley & putting Alfies train track together about 10 times an hour, he tends to break it apart a lot, then there’s the constant feeding Miley & being dragged back & to into different rooms with Alfie & that’s in between cooking, washing & cleaning.

I really love it though, I love being a Mum it’s so rewarding, I never think of it as a job, but during a survey the other day the woman asked me what my occupation was, so I replied “unemployed” she asked why so I began to explain that I look after my 2 children, in which case she responded with “Then you’re not unemployed you’re a stay at home Mother/house wife” which is true, it’s not as such a job, but it’s my job to look after them, they’re my responsibility & although I really want a part time job, I’d have to find someone to look after them & also pay them while me & Phil were at work & I hate the thought of missing out on them growing up & developing, maybe I could work around Phils job! who knows… it’s still 2012 & I have to get Christmas out the way 1st before making any more plans for the next year, I already have too many!!
