The kids are home so we went for ice cream :)

They’ve been away at Aiden’s dad’s for the past week and while I really enjoy the time to myself, I’m happy to have them home 🙂

Ant wasn’t working yesterday so because nearly all of us being together (Aiden went to Butlins at Skegness for the day with his friend, Chloe) with no one having to work doesn’t happen very often, we decided to go out for the afternoon.

Our first plan was to go to Hubbard’s Hill but then Ant said we should go on Tuesday when better weather was forecast so we decided to go to Daisy Made instead. The girls love Daisy Made and weren’t upset at all at the change of plan!

We nipped out to Asda before lunch and daddy spoiled the girls by buying them pens, and white boards and folders and stuff!
I bought a folder to put all the papers in that I’ll be printing out to get my Christmas organisation started (yes I know I said the C word and it’s only the start of September but I like to start early!) and I also stocked up on pens and pencils for Aiden for school.

Ella hurt her arm and for some reason this meant she couldn’t walk anymore and wanted to sit in the seat next to her doll. I don’t know how she managed to fit in there and I was worried all the time that she wasn’t going to be able to get out but luckily daddy was on hand to help!

At Daisy Made the girls had a round of crazy golf…










before fetching delicious ice cream! We all had two different flavours in a tub, mine was peanut butter and banana with the banana being my favourite. Ant had Turkish delight and peanut butter, Kaycee had mint choc chip and banana and Ella had honey and mint choc chip. It’s always very hard to choose because they all sound so lovely!
I’m not dwelling on how many calories it has though!



They had a play in the sand and on the tractors before making a visit to Nanny’s house. She hadn’t seen the girls for a while so we called in for half an hour before going home to make dinner.

It was really lovely spending some time with daddy 🙂
