The last month has been a bit of a strange one here, for me.
A month ago today we moved house, finally escaping from the little place that was only meant to be temporary but in which we ended up staying for over a year.
There’s the usual unpacking & organising, & we’ve only had the internet & ‘phone since Monday.
My routine has changed dramatically too in the last month. I’ve found myself not able to do much in the way of blogging, or tweeting, until late at night – by which time I really just want to watch a bit of telly & go to bed.
That’s a shame as, especially since term break, we’ve been having a very active &, overall, very happy time. In the last week we & the twins have enjoyed a great freeplay session at the children’s gym, a new softplay centre, the circus, the fun farm, a day at Folly Farm, the local holiday park & the beach, as well as their new playground.
Jake & Ellie seem to have changed a lot in the last month too: for the good, I hasten to add!
Every now & then 1 or both of them seems to take a big leap. Being twins they spur each other on too: when 1 sees the other doing something new they want to do it too!
Jake seems to have completely lost his fear of heights: nothing seems to faze him now! I’ve been amazed at what he takes on, & what he can do. The frightened one now is more likely to be me: “Jake, are you sure about that?!”
It’s a telling truth that he – and Ellie – can now do physical things that dear old Dad cannot…
I hope to get back into a habit of regular posting again, including about some of our recent exploits.
In the meantime here’s a lovely scene from ‘our’ new garden. It’s great to finally have the room to eat outside again – not to mention the weather for it!
And yes: Jake shouldn’t be on the table, even for raspberries. In his defence I think he was pretending to be a baby – along with the obligatory “goo-goo” & “gah-gah” noises. That’s been a popular game around here recently for some reason!
