We are still here!

We are still here, I promise! I know we have been (very) quiet, but I have a good excuse. I have been feeling awful recently – constant nausea, sickness, exhaustion – but as the dark clouds are beginning to lift and leave me feeling capable of a few basic tasks again we can at last announce…

…We’re pregnant!!!

Annabelle will be a big sister in September 🙂

So I’m sorry for the lack of blogging, but hopefully now that I am beginning to feel better, we might just have a little more to share. For now though, here are a few little snippets of what we have been up to this winter and early spring:

The Deep

We paid a visit the The Deep in Hull, and saw beautiful Manta Rays.

Learning Resources Shape Matching

Annabelle has been enjoying using her shape pattern mats.

Roundabout fun

Despite all the rain we managed to spend plenty of time whizzing about in parks.

Etherow Country Park Puddles

As Annabelle reminded me throughout the rain – “we like rain because it makes puddles!” We found some excellent puddles at Etherow Country Park.

Etherow Country Park Trees

Annabelle discovered that tree roots are much better than metal climbing frames.

View from Werneth Low

We climbed to the top of a local hill – Werneth Low. Annabelle enjoyed going on a bear hunt in the ‘swishy swashy grass’.

It was a bit windy up there!

Lytham Land Art

Annabelle enjoyed making some ‘land art’ near the beach at Lytham St Anne’s.

Blackpool Illuminations

We ventured over to Blackpool to see the Illuminations.

Now that the sun is shining more often and I am feeling better, we will be out and about having some adventures to share soon!

  1. Those are some quality puddles 😀

    Glad you are starting to feel better and congrats again 🙂
