The children and I have been enjoying afew days away. It was truly wonderful and we cant wait to go again. I have wanted to take them for ages, I have been before but didnt have children at the time and I think it is so different when you have your own children with you. Magical.

We are looking forward to the summer holidays, only two weeks to go. Although I have nthing planned at the moment I have lots of ideas of places to take the children and things that we can do at home. I have been searching the web, blogs and the huge amount of activity books I have collected over the years to come up with some cool things to do. My daughter is now ten and I wonder how much longer she will want to do things with me, I know it wont be long before she would rather be out with her friends doing their own thing and Mummy will be the taxi or the personal bank supply. LOL....
I have decorating that I need to do also, My daughters room needs to be done an the front room also needs to be tidied up. Then there is the BIG DE CLUTTER I have planned (shudder) we have lots of old toys and books that have been dearly loved but surely it must be time for them to be passed on to someone and then there is the forest (garden) that my house sits on. It has become so overgrown recently due to lack of time to do anything with it that the dog and children could get lost in the long grass.

I hope that there will be lots happening that are worth blogging about and not just the usual day in day out stuff.

Take Care.

We went to Disneyland at Easter and it is very magical ~ like you I went pre children too, but nothing is as wonderful as seeing the look of amazement on your children's faces when they experience the Disney Magic for the first time ~ and one visit is just never enough! :O)

I would love to take the little ones' to Euro Disney, or even better DisneyLand at one point, I think they'd love it! But we'll have to dream for the moment...

Ooh a de-clutter sounds very much like hard work. Mind you, I have been emptying cupboards over the past week or so, tidying up and sorting out...just a bit at a time, nothing too much. Hubby thinks I am a bit mad...but he is entitled to his opinion.

I haven't even thought about what to do to occupy the little ones over the holidays! Lots of walks I expect as I'll need to try and shift my baby weight asap! We break up on 22nd July, five days before my due date....!!

I didn't realise you were going to disney -- lucky you . I need to declutter the mountain of toys in the back room before we get mistaken for the Early Learning Centre !!!

Sounds like you had a lovely time. We've never been and I'm not sure if E is too old now at 12! We have broken up already and E has had the pile of craft books out too. We made groovy cuffs at end of term sleepover which you might like to do with your children(link on my blog). Also just bought cheap notebooks for children to decorate and fill with pics and stuff they did in the hols.
