Morning Disco Party

16/08/2017
Norwich 2 QPR 0

The cousins are still with us and they gave me an early start today, waking both our littles one and me up at 5.50.

I can't complain too much though as since they've been with us our little one has slept through the night twice.

The girls are all having a lovely time together and they are enjoying spending time with their grandparents. I am very jealous as they went to Bewilderwood on Monday and they are off to Pensthorpe later in the week. Annoyingly due to previously booked holiday I cannot have any time off work.

Today I left them having a disco party in the bedroom and as I write this I have the lyrics to Welcome to New York swirling around in my head.

The men folk are off to the football this evening so after a day at work my mother in law and I ate some tea before tackling bed time. We took two girls each. After putting all the girls to bed we then relaxed with a glass of wine and Coronation Street followed by Don't Tell the Bride. I was asleep before my husband got home.

Steam Train

13/08/2016
Norwich 1 Sunderland 3

We have added to our household this weekend. As our nieces have come for a week long visit. My mother-in-law isn't going to today's game so our oldest niece can go instead. She is a junior canary and even has her own scarf. That said I think her favourite part of the day was the car journey to and from the game. And the score certainly didn't please her.

We took the younger girls to Norton's Light Railway for the afternoon. We had been earlier in the season but it was nice to go again as they had different entertainment on.  The girls loved the Punch and Judy show and The Lavender Hill Mob's ABBA medley.  I enjoyed the cake. They also got their faces painted. Our youngest niece loves bunnies so she had a white bunny face painted on. It looked great to start with but by the time she spkyped her mum and dad in the evening it made her look a bit peaky.

After spending a few hours and a few coins on the steam train we headed to the Rose and Crown, aka the ship pub! To meet the others for tea. It was really nice playing with the girls in the garden and the food was a good as always.

Ducklings

08/08/2017
Norwich 3 Swindon 2

Just a quick post tonight.  My husband and father in law went to the game this evening as they couldn't wait until Sunday for the first game at Carrow Road.

We have had a very exciting evening. As we have been watching the mother duck, that lives under a bush in our front garden, egg's hatch. We have been waiting for them to hatch for the last three weeks. And what we have seen of the ducklings so far is very cute. Our little one has just started talking and can say quack quack.

We also had a party dancing around the living room to ABBA records Honey Honey is our eldest's favourite. If you don't listen to the words it's not inappropriate at all. Her love of ABBA stems from watching Mama Mia at Grandma's house.

Both girls are now asleep in our room which mean my husband and I are sharing the bunk beds tonight!

It's Back

05/08/2017
Fulham 1 Norwich 1

Even though the football season only ended three short months ago, so much has happened in our lives since then. We are still living with my very understanding inlaws, but we are now waiting for the purchase of our first house to go through. We keep pushing our expected move day back, hopefully it will be before my birthday and we really hope to be in the new house before our eldest starts school.

I have also now been gainfully employed for the last three months working for a toy company. And the girls are enjoying a combination of Granny/ Grandma daycare and nursery. Being back in work full time is certainly easier knowing that both sets of parents are looking after our girls so well.

And now to complete our lives the football is back. It just gives the weekend a nice structure.  Today all my husband wanted to do was listen to the game. So we tried to get our chores out of the way this morning so I could distract the girls come kick off. This plan didn't quite work out and at 3 o'clock I was still hanging out washing whilst our eldest watched Descendents music video on her Daddy's phone. This may have slightly distracted him from the commentary.

But we got it together for the second half. Which the girls and I spent playing with a cornucopia of 80's play people (playmobile). After the game it was an early bath and hair wash, as our eldest wanted me to plait her hair so she could have crimpy hair for Heacham Carinal tomorrow. Roll on the first home game....
