Who's a winner?

Hello my lovelies, I am so glad to be back after being sick for a couple of days.
I hope you all had a good weekend.
Ours was wet.
The British summer is not going so well this year, I think the sun
has truly forgotten us.
Anyway, want to know what we got up to on Saturday?
Good, because I'm ready to tell you all about it.
It was just an ordinary day and nothing special happened.

We all woke up relatively early, kids are still in that stage
where a sleep in means getting up at five minutes past seven instead of
seven on the dot.
Made breakfast. I had mini croissants and pain au chocolats in the freezer
so I quickly baked them in the oven for a continental breakfast.
Emily decided she wanted coco pops instead.

Kids were excited because the school fair was on so they ran up to get dressed as soon as breakfast was finished.

Redressed they kids. Dylan came down wearing trousers that got way too short
and Emily decided to clash her colours. I am not that strict on what they wear but I don't
want them to look like little clowns.

It was too early for the school fair so the kids decided to watch a cartoon

Emily spilled orange juice all over her top so I send her up to change clothes AGAIN
Found Emily in her room doing her hair and she asked if she could do mine.
I let her. We look nice, I know!

Got her another top ready and had a shower

Did the dishes.

Asked Simon to quickly do the hoovering

Watched Simon do the hoovering.

Got ready to go out to the school fair, noticed Dylan's sandals are now too small too.
Has this kid grown overnight??

Got the kids scooters out of the garage and started walking

Walked back because it started raining and we needed an umbrella

Kids still wanted to scoot to school so off we went

Walked around the school fair and spend too much money on needless things
and tombola tickets.
Won a necklace in the tombola, yay!

Walked back home in the rain

Simon decided to treat the kids to Mc Donalds for lunch. Kiddies were
very happy with that decision.

Ate Mc Donalds and went back home

Decided we should buy Dylan some new clothes as he's turning into a
little giant

Drove to Canterbury (in the pouring rain)

Too rainy to walk around town so decided to stop in The Range instead.
Looked at all the craft stuff and made some mental notes. Also found some great ideas for
summer holiday projects with the kids.
Nearly bought some new curtains.

Went to Matalan to buy Dylan some new clothes and shoes

Went straight to the Woman's shoe isle
Let out a squeal when I saw these

Tried them on and put them in the basket
Found Simon and the kids in the kiddies shoe isle.
Helped the kids try on some new shoes
Decided on a pair and went to look for jeans for Dylan
Ignored all the "oh can I have this?" pleas from the kids
Ended up buying more than what we came for, including new towels and a bucket!
Went home, it was still raining
The whole drive home we discussed what we were going to have for
dinner. We settled on pasta bolognaise.
Stopped at the supermarket and changed our minds to have
pasta pesto chicken instead.
Hubby quickly ran in to buy the ingredients while me and the kiddies stayed
in the car. We turned the radio up and sang along as loud as we could to Bruno
Mars's "Today I don't feel like doing anything".
Came home and Simon made dinner.
Kids and me decided on what movie to watch.
started watching Jumanji.
Had delicious dinner while watching Jumanji.
Continued watching Jumanji with Emily on my lap because she's scared of the hunter.
Finished the movie and send the kids up for bath time

They had a quick shower and put their pyjama's on

Tucked the kids in bed and read them a bedtime story.
Sang songs to the kids.
Came down and found Simon had done the dishes (great husband!)
and his dad was visiting.

Kids came down to see who was there, said hello to grandad and went back up
Simon went up to tuck them in again
Watched another movie (Source code), while stuffing myself with
biscuits and crisps.
Felt bloated and went to bed.
There you go, that was our Saturday. Nothing spectacular happened but it was a good day.
Sometimes those days are the best.

I will trade you homes. I have all the sun I can handle and I need rain. Come to Oklahoma and you'll get your fill.
Cute shoes!!

VandyJ said...

We are finally getting afternoon rain--it does help cool it off.
Love those shoes--I might have squealed too.
Not looking forward to the shopping that must be done next month for our oldest to go back to school. Why must they grow so quickly?

Stacy Uncorked said...

I'll happily send our over-abundant heat and sunshine for some of your rain. Wonder if Mother Nature can take care of the exchange for us? ;)

Your Saturday sounds busy but fun - and score!! on the new shoes! :) How is it that our kids grow over night? Princess Nagger seems to have done the same recently - I'm going to put off shopping for her until right before school starts in case she does even more growing over the next couple of months. :)
