Bits and Bobs

Still trying to catch up on all the time I haven't blogged!

Ethan had a lovely time at a party yesterday. It was a super hero party and they had a lady that came as secret agent Rose and did various games and tasks which the children loved. After that we went to my Grandma and Grandad's as it's ages since we last went and we usually go really often. We had dinner there which as always was lovely, Sunday dinner tastes so much better when someone else cooks it. Even though it was raining Ethan went out into their garden to look at the pond and things my Grandad is growing. We came back with some radish's, lettuce and bean plants all of which we haven't grown this year.
Ethan is really into planting and we have a little area in the garden in front of his shed that is taking shape. This year we have strawberry's, rhubarb, raspberry's, blackberries, tomatoes, peas and parsley. Ethan is especially enjoying going out to the garden and picking bowls of strawberries. The peas and tomatoes are doing well and hopefully within the next few weeks we should have some ready. The parsley has grown really well and it's great to be able to add to certain meals.

On Saturday Ethan started back at dancing and had a great time and really got into the dances. With me being ill then us having things on at the weekends etc he hasn't been able to go. I was so surprised how well he did as he went straight in and danced and even remembered a few bits from the dances and picked the rest up really well.
On the way home from dancing we stopped off at a new Gap outlet. It was great and I got a few lovely bits for the baby and Ethan - looking forward to my next trip there :)
This weekend John has been tidying the garage ready for us to take down and have the extension done. He managed to find all Ethan's old baby clothes so they have been sorted - some have gone to a neighbour, some to the charity shop and the rest are currently being washed. It's amazing how much there is, especially vests, sleepsuits etc - I'd forgotten about some of it.
On Saturday afternoon we met Katy and went to Cyril's Nut Hut so the children could have a play and we could chat. We always have a good time there and the food and drinks are really reasonable.
Last Sunday we went to see Katy and family and went out for a Father's Day meal at Frankie and Benny's. After me and Katy went shopping in Milton Keynes and the men took the children to a play centre. On the way back we stopped off at Martin's work and Ethan got to go inside the plane - to say he was gobsmacked and excited is an understatement! Here are a few photos:
