Seaside fun...

So, not quite the first trip to the seaside but the first one we stopped any length of time for. Sand is sooooooooo not little mans cup of tea but after some gentle coaxing we did manage a little toddle down to the waters edge but the sea was far too cold to even dip our toes in.

This is the ball that I chose for myself...

How best to eat an ice cream - with an icecreamy moustache of course!

Look at how much beach we had to ourselves...
How to squish mummys best sandcastle of the whole day...

Hmmm could this be iggle piggle and his boat that sails to the night garden, I'm very close to sleep myself...

Yet more adversity…

If you pay much attention to the news, you may have heard that Cheltenham & Gloucester Plc is closing the door on all it’s branches – and as my job involved training those branches I too am directly affected and so have been put at risk of redundancy.

I like to think that this may be my grand opportunity to change my focus – I really want to spend more time at home whilst Haydn is little and to work to live and not the other way around so I will review my employment options later down the line!

Triumph over adversity…

We’ve been having a tough time trying to understand why Haydn has been poorly recently and we’re starting to think that it’s a result of some very strong antibiotics that have effected his stomach and heightened pre-existing intolerances. We’re pretty sure that lactose is an issue and we’ve been combating this wherever possible by avoiding dairy in it’s purest form and have swapped it for lacto-free products.

Last week we went to an allergy clinic to get some definitive answers and although the homeopathic approach didn’t sit comfortably with either myself or my husband it revealed some information that we’re going to work with going forward.

Missing…

Apologies for the lack of updates for a little while now, I’ve returned to work on a full time basis and with my little man being a little poorly too recently, I’ve focussed my energies elsewhere.


However, it has been niggling at the back of my mind that I’ve not been able to do something I really enjoy and which fills me with a great sense of pleasure so I’m committing a chunk of my lunch break each day to thinking about nice bits and pieces like making things rather than how to train people to sell mortgages (a somewhat uninspiring subject in comparison but it has it’s merits – meeting new people, watching them develop/grow and being able to use creativity to get a message across).
