Shrove Tuesday (Pancake Day)

Alice and I have been quite ill this past week so I haven't been able to update :(

But we are both on the mend, unfortunately we passed it onto my family (oops), and Megan never got it thank goodness!!

Anyway, yesterday was Shrove Tuesday and as Alice and I were feeling better I thought we should definitely have some pancakes! I halved the recipe so that I didn't make too many as we still aren't 100% yet.

I got everything ready and it's advised that you leave the batter for 5 minutes before making the pancakes.

 I ended up making 3, it would have been 4 but the first one was absolutely rubbish!

With my pancakes I like to have sugar, cinnamon and some lemon juice. It was sooo yummy :)

I put Nutella on Alice's one as I know how much my girl loves Nutella! Only thing was that I found she rather eat the Nutella off the pancake rather than the actual pancake itself, so she was scraping the Nutella off with her finger and eating that instead. At least I tried I suppose.

And what was Megan doing throughout this I hear you ask. Just have a look.

She fell sound asleep in her bouncy chair bless!

Did any of you have pancakes yesterday? What kind of toppings do you like? Sweet or savoury?

I'm Back!

Life has taken over and I have found it difficult to blog as of late.

I've been trying to handle life with 2 children and it takes a lot of time, and a lot of patience!
I must say that it is soo lovely looking after my two beautiful girls and they bring me soo much joy. But when I have time to myself I tend to just relax rather than decide to blog.

I am back now after almost a month and I'm hoping to get back into the swing of things again :)

This week we did some playing

I got a surprise parcel

I have been doing some DIY

Done some baking

Saw some friends

and we've started having a bit more family time

Hope you are all having a wonderful 2013 so far, I know we are :)

Sunday Update

I'm still here and well :)

We've started to get a sort of routine together now. Megan can still be quite unpredictable with feeds and everything but we are getting there. Slowly but surely.

On Monday I took down all of our Christmas decorations to try and get some of our normality back.

I have taken soo many photo's of this little one! I cannot help it she is just far too adorable :)

Alice is still enjoying being a big sister, long may it last! This is her tickling Megan, although I understand it doesn't look that way I promise that is what she is doing!

For Christmas Alice got a play kitchen from Grandma and Grandpa and it has been extremely well used!

Grandma has been over pretty much everyday and Alice has loved every minute of it! They made this big tower of Lego blocks that was taller than Alice. She was very impressed with it :)

Megan at 10 days old became too big for her newborn baby-grows, she couldn't stretch her legs out properly, poor baby!  Needless to say I've now put her in 0-3 month clothing which are now HUGE on her!

She is just too cute not to put another picture up of her! Megan is one chilled out baby and looks especially peaceful when sleeping!

And lastly, in my tidying up yesterday I found this necklace I got from Alice, or shall I say her Nanna, for Christmas. I am extremely proud to be able to wear it! I absolutely LOVE being a Mummy and my girls could not make me any happier :)

Hope you've all had a brilliant first week of 2013!

Update and Happy New Year!

As you all may have noticed I have been MIA since the 23rd December. Well let me tell you I am fine and well and there is a perfectly good reason as to why I have been missing!

On Christmas morning Alice and I opened up her stocking and a few of her presents.

Then at 8am I started getting contractions!

By 9am my mum was over looking after Alice, the midwife turned up at 10am and by 12:17pm Megan Jane was born weighing 7lbs 12oz!

So the reason I've been away is pretty self-explanatory. We've been getting to know our new member and Alice is a very doting big sister.

We've now hit the New Year and I'm going to be starting my Project Life album and it'll be nice starting it with both of my girls with me!

Happy New Year everyone! I hope 2013 treats you all very well :)
