Me & Mine April

What a whirlwind of a month April was! It completely slipped my mind to post yesterday but better late than never eh?!
We had our Easter celebrations at the beginning of the month. As always this included a couple of Easter egg hunts. We went to our first one in Fota Gardens, it was an Alice in Wonderland themed one and really good. We went along with some friends and Luke walked for most of it, I thought he might get tired and need his buggy but we didn't bring it and he was fine. The other one was in my parents, as it is every year. My Dad hides all the eggs and treats and Luke and his 3 cousins go off and find them. Of course Luke had a helping hand from his Dad! There is still Easter eggs on the kitchen table so I will more than likely turn them into rice krispie cakes soon.
April also saw us celebrating my niece, Katie's, confirmation day. We had a wonderful time, I did her hair for that morning and she was all decked out in her new dress. There was a party in my parents that afternoon with lots of cake and a bouncy castle, it was a bit windy but a great day. The best part was giving her the One Direction tickets we had all got for her as a present. She was delighted and I'm taking her in October, she hasn't stopped talking about it since!
As I posted yesterday we were also at the first ever Irish Parenting Blog Awards in Dublin. It was a great weekend away, a bit of us time for me and the OH and an opportunity to meet some of my fellow bloggers. I'm looking forward to next years event already!
April also sees the end of my 4 day week at work for the time being. From May onwards I am back to 5 days a week. I'm trying not to think about it too much because I hate the extra ay away form Luke but hopefully I will be so busy the time will fly.

I can't get how grown up Luke looks in this month's pictures, his personality is shining through in these pictures and he's becoming such an independent little guy who's now repeating everything we say. He's such a little charmer and knows exactly when to flash that cheeky grin of his.

Here we are in April:



This month Luke loves:

  • His new Fireman Sam backpack
  • Raisins and rice cakes, all day every day
  • Cereal before bed
This month Dad loves:
  • Getting an instant tan as soon as the sun peaks through
  • Playing football matches
  • Going to the cinema for Fast and the Furious
This month Mum loves:
  • Dying my hair a different colour
  • Sorting through all my old teenage stuff in my parents house
  • Seeing some sunshine

    1. Hopefully the extra days pay will soften the blow of the extra day at work :)

  2. Awh Lou, Luke really is the perfect mix of you both, he's not just James! He's such a happy little guy too. Sorting through old teenage stuff? There's nothing better is there? :)
