On Monday, it was back to school for the kids and back to college for me. I had classes on Children's Rights and Legislation, Children's Health and Working with Children. I found it easier to take in and I enjoyed all the tasks we had. Z and Miss C were playing when I got home. We received some new Orchard Toys games in the post, which we will be reviewing shortly, and the kids were excited to colour in the box they came in!
On Tuesday, I dropped the kids off at school and headed to college. Today it was more theory and curriculum lessons. After college, I headed in to town to pick up some Dollars for Z's best friend who is off to Florida next week. I went to Greggs for a sausage roll and a biscuit treat for the kids. I picked them up from school, really ready for a coffee and a sit down!
On Wednesday, I didn't have to go to college but I did have homework that took me pretty much all day to do. I picked the kids up after school and because it was a really nice day and they didn't have any homework, we went to the park. I told them to take off their school shoes and put their gym shoes on though! After the park, we went home for dinner and then played in the garden until bedtime.
On Thursday, it was an in-service day at school so the kids were off. I decided I'd take them out for lunch as Husband was in bed sleeping from his night shift. We went to one of my favourite Chinese restaurants and then headed to the park to meet friends. It was a lot of fun and we were very tired when we got home. After dinner, we watched some TV and then had a nice, warm bath to relax using some of the JOHNSON's Baby FIRST TOUCH All-in-one-Wash. It's fragrance-free and really gentle on the kids' skin so it's ideal for making a fun bubble bath without having to worry about it irritating their eczema. It's so gentle because it has been developed for Mums to use on their newborns without having to worry about what they can and can't use on their new baby's skin. There are lots of other products in the range including wipes, shampoo and moisturising lotion.
On Friday, the kids were off school for the September weekend. Z was going to his best friend's house for the day. They were off to the cinema to see Tarzan and then going to play badminton. Miss C and I had a house day. We played with her Palace Pets and watched Lady and the Tramp.
On Saturday, Z had karate in the morning. He was very tired after his day out yesterday. After lunch, we had a relaxing afternoon, playing a game of Can you Guess? which is a new game from Orchard Toys. It was a lot of fun. After dinner, we got snuggled up on the couch to watch Xfactor.
