#Project365 – Week 15

This week has been the start of half term and although I have tired to stay busy with the kids. I haven’t always remembered to take snaps of what we have been up to.

But here is my week minus a few really awesome pictures I wish I had taken. 

Day 96 

 Here is Baby, enjoying the sun and her first time on a trampoline. She isn’t normally in just a vest but in the midday sun it was really warm. I must say I love his the static has affected her hair, she looks so cute!

Day 97 

This was my attempt at a healthy breakfast after to chocolate fest that was Easter Sunday. I know it’s not really healthy but it has fruit in it. 

Day 98 

Tuesday I thought I would share how amazed I was that baby could sleep in such I weird positions on a regular basis. I know this is all part and parcel on her low muscle tone, which cause hypermobility, which is part of her Down syndrome but it’s still amazing watching her do the splits or sleep hugging her legs etc. 

What do you think? 

Day 99 

I love flowers and I buy myself a bunch every week when I do the shopping, just because they make me happy  and my house smell lovely. Plus they are amazing to snap a quick photo of, if I’m in a pinch and need a bit of inspiration. 

Day 100 

The boys wanted to go camping but because it was short notice, I don’t drive and it was after 6pm, they had to settle for a night of sleeping with me in a tent in the garden. 

I only agreed because I thought they would give up and say they wanted to go inside after a hour or so. But they didn’t and they adored the whole night and slept outside on the hard ground, much to my dismay. I coped by dreaming of my bed.

Day 101 

 I realise I take far too many pictures of food but this one was actually for #snaphappybritmums and it’s #betterwithcake prompt. I know it’s not cake but it had to do.

Day 102 

Here is Baby enjoying her first trip out on her sisters hand me down smart trike. I would have brought her, her own but E is much happier with her peddle bike which means I can save money and they both can enjoy the fun.

So that’s my week, how was yours?

#Project365 – week 14 

Day 89 

On Sunday we finally saw the sung or the first time in ages. So we put on our wellies and went for play at the park p, bumping into some friends on the way. The kids had great fun.

Day 90  

 We got invited back to Brewers Fayre at Old Brickworks. So I invited my mum along. Sadly the boys were still at school and hadn’t broke up yet. It was just Me, Grandma, E and Baby. As you can tell we had fun 🙂 

Day 91 

The hubby lovely treated me to a rather big breakfast in bed! It wasn’t even my birthday or Mother’s Day. It was just because he loves me.

Day 92 

The hubby was sulking a little because he tired to April fools me but I didn’t fall for it. What can I say I’m use to him being a fool so I wasn’t going to fall for it.  

Day 93 

It was another beautiful day and I spotted some daisies growing in the field next to the park. I hade to get a snap of them because I love daisies ❤️. They always make me think of my childhood and long summer days sitting in the garden making daisy chains. 

Day 94 

 I decided to get in the Easter mood for my #snaphappybritmums photo. The prompt was “hat”. So I thought a selfie wearing Baby’s rabbit hat would be prefect. 

Day 95 

 Another selfie I know but it’s not often me and the hubby manage to get a snap together. And I have to say I really love this picture. 

So there’s my week in pictures. 

I hope you will let me know what you think in the comments.

#Project365 – Week 12

This week is an exciting week because it has Mother’s Day, My 1st Blogiversary and World Down Syndrome Day. 

It’s a very busy and full of fun week.

Day 74 

 

My Hubby and kids made me a special Mother’s Day breakfast. I must say it brought a smile to my face 😀 I am a very lucky mummy!

Day 75  

 

We had a poorly E who was on Monday, high temp, runny nose and feeling sorry for ourselves. Luckily calpol and mummy cuddles where prescribe with docmcstuffins on sky planner. She was fine and back to school the next day.

Day 76 

 

Tuesday was my first Blogiversary and I have some lovely pictures in my post all about it here. I hadn’t realised that Monday had been the start of Down syndrome awareness week. So I made baby a little poser (she was a natural!) and made this picture. I must say I’m pretty proud of both her and the picture.

Day 77 



E was a really brave girl when she went for her preschool booster. She didn’t even cry. she did get a little upset on second injection, but it was nothing a super mummy cuddle couldn’t fix. Super proud mummy at how much a trooper she is 🙂 

Day 78

Baby got her first pair of Piedro boots from her Orthotics doctor. She was given these and some splints because has a lot of movement in her ankles (due to hypotonia) these boots and ankle will give her the extra support she will need to stand and eventually walk. They are already working wonders and I think there beautiful.

Day 79

 

I almost forgot to take a picture on Friday and I only remember when I was in middle of dying my hair. So I had to settle for this lovely hair dye selfie. 

I know it’s so flattering lol 


Day 80



Today 21st March and it is World Down Syndrome Day! 

This is our #lotsofsocks for #worlddownsyndromeday #WDSD2015 #WDSD15 #downsyndrome #trisomy21 #teamT21 #21stmarch 

Today is world down syndrome day because people who are born with the genetic condition Down syndrome have 3 copies of the 21st chromosomes and the 21st of March is the 21st of the 3rd month.

We ask you to wear lots of colourful socks to show that everyone may be different but we as still the same. Plus if you add the heels of sock together but turn one sock upside down it makes and X which is the shape of a chromosome. 



💛💙💛💙💛💙Happy WDSD everyone💛💙💛💙💛💙

So there you go that my week in pictures 🙂 

I hope you have had a great week and I can’t wait to see your photos.

#Project365 – Week 10

This week has been a fun and busy week. The best thing about it is that I have been snapping loads of photo the worst thing is hard it is picking my favourite out of the many pictures, but I have given it ago. 

So here is my week 10 in pictures.


Day 59

This was a #WIDN tagged photo that I snapped of Baby waving out the window to her invisible adoring fans. She has really perfected here waves and even has a few different styles. She has her Happy wave, her Bye Bye wave, her I’m Shy wave and she is now working on her royal wave. It is completely heart melting to watch how adorable she looks.

Day 60

On Monday I got into spring cleaning mode. I decided that while baby napped and E was happy watching TV, I would wash the windows and wipe all the muck finger prints off my walls. E thought that cleaning was more fun then her TV and wanted to give me a hand. So together we did the spring cleaning of the house.

Day 61

Asleeping baby who was completely tuckard out after a busy morning playing at the Down’s syndrome early intervention group that we attend every 2 weeks. 

Day 62

I love the sisterly love between these too makes me burst with pride. That is until 2 minutes later when Baby is eating E’s face and pulling her hair, while E screams and pushes her away.

Day 63

It was world book day and the kids all dressed up. P was the only one actually from a book but no one at the school argued and the kids all enjoyed themselves.

Day 64

After the Morning school run we stopped off for a quick coffee and some cake before we did the weekly shop. This was the only day that I didn’t manage to get many pictures but I still managed to snap a few.

Day 65

The boys had great fun at the Beano Grand Opening event that we were invited too at Brewers Fayre, Old Brickworks. We got a few snaps off the inside but the boys also wanted to explore the outside play area too. I must say we had a great time and they were all worn out from the excitment of the day. 

So there is our week and all the fun we had. 

How was your week?

Day 56

Day 57



I dropped my phone while doing the family shop. I almost started crying out side the supermarket. Luckily I still had insurance on my phone and I have already got it replaced. I felt so lost though. 

Day 58



We promised T a game of monopoly if he kept up good behaviour and today he managed to only give a tiny bit of attitude. So he got a game before bed. He did really well but end up going bust. 

Can’t wait to see your weeks an see what you have been upto.

#Project365 – Week 6

Although this week has been a really busy week and I have spent most days out of the house doing one thing or another. Like meeting friends for coffee, doing courses at the local childrens centre and going to play groups with the girls while doing my Parent Champion work. I haven’t really taken my phone out to snap photos. Meaning most of the pictures this week have been taken in my house even if we haven’t been in it all that much.

Day 32

IMG_5917
Here is a picture of me just messing about with a ribbon my kids kept playing with and fighting over. So to end the arguments I removed the ribbon and put it in my hair. I think it actually suits me. What about you?

Day 33

IMG_5919
I know it’s a random photo of my nails. But over last week or so I have been really trying to have nice nails and I was really impressed with how they looked 🙂 they also managed to go 3 days without chipping. Result!

Day 34

IMG_5938
Here is Baby attempting to walk with the aid of grandma. It was so cute but she really isn’t there yet. She be soon probably but for now I’m happy with her working on her standing and balance.

Day 35

IMG_5948
Siblings. These too love to hate each other. They can be as thick as thieves one minute but the next P is annoying E and the screaming, fighting and bickering starts. E constantly say P is her best friend but then turns round and says she doesn’t like him. As you can see I managed to catch a nice moment.

Day 36

IMG_5962
This picture was just meant to be a goof or a laugh because while I was cleaning Baby was doing round watching me. Every time I got close to her she would reach out for vacuum and so I thought I would let her have a go. She actually copied me. You can see video here

Day 37

IMG_5989
P is proud as punch and so am I that he has managed to work hard and get his silver award in school. I’m a very proud mummy 🙂

Day 38

IMG_7717
My kids all drawing some really thoughtful pictures or cards for a neighbours and friend. Who’s dog has sadly passed away 😢 RIP.

IMG_7719
Here are the finished pictures.

How was your week?
