Yesterday we took Clark to the Santa's Grotto at ESK, Eastbourne and he really enjoyed it... Well, not the Santa part as he hid behind me and cried, but the rest of it!
Outside the store they have their 'nativity' animals including goats, horses, ducks, chickens, a turkey and a donkey. There's also a local produce stall which had the most vibrant fruit and veg, though a little embarrassing when your 2 year old points to it all and asks what it is. I promise he eats it!
Waaaaaaahhhhhhhhhh – I am feeling super emotional today. My littlest Wilko turned 10 months old yesterday. Why? How?
And more importantly who has put 2016 on fast-forward? I feel as though I’ve blinked and missed Cruise going from 4 weeks to 8 weeks, to 4 months to 8 months and now he’s already 10 months. With Clark, I felt like I had the time to sit and devour every little second, every little dimple, every little thing. But with Cruise it’s been he’s rolled, he’s sat, he’s crawled, he’s walked and in two months he’ll be one.
Being a mum of two is fantastic, rewarding, everything I had imagined but shit, no one told me about the guilt. The guilt is the worst. The fact Cruise is already 10 months old and I feel like I’ve not sat and cherished him, obviously I have, but it doesn’t feel like it as you’re caught up in the whirlwind of having two.
Stickman! Stickman! Beware of the...
Yesterday we took Clark to Leicester Square Theatre, London, to see the utterly brilliant Stickman Live!
Stickman has been a firm favourite in this household since Christmas last year when the family gathered round to watch the animated film, so when I received an email announcing the tour I had to book tickets.
I hadn't researched into Scamp Theatre's production of Stickman Live, so I went into the theatre with somewhat of an open mind - but it completely surpassed any expectations which I had, with its originality and the way it captivated the whole audience.
