It’s been a long time since I went for Afternoon Tea. The last time was March last year with hubby’s sister. It was time to book another one. And there was no better occasion other than my birthday. I spent the weekend at my friends in Sligo. We decided to try out Afternoon Tea in Knockranny House Hotel, Westport which is only an hours drive from Sligo.
Chloe absolutely adores dolls and anything that involves role play. It started off with a doll she got from her godfather two Christmases ago. Since then her doll collection has grown and she is up to four to five baby dolls now. The only thing missing in her collection was a Barbie doll.
And so we are half way through the first month of the new year. I have been fairly quiet on the blog the past month. So far we have done nothing exciting to be honest. The weather is holding us back and now that we have started potty training Chloe at the weekend, we are very limited to go places. I’d just rather have her fully trained at home and then go out in maybe two weeks or so.
I am really watching my kids sugar intake. It is very important they have healthy teeth. During the week they always get water only in their cups. It’s a habit we got into and I don’t want to steer away from. I used to drink a lot of sugary drinks as a child (still do) but these type of drinks for my own kids are only a treat every now and again in our house now.
Do you find yourself planning out the holidays for the entire year come January? The trigger seems to be Christmas. I already have a week of work behind me. However, because I had such a nice time off over the festive season, I already feel like planning another holiday for us all. Plus, January always seems to be the month of deals and percentages off, particularly flights.
We are getting to a stage now of Lego everywhere. Not too long ago Matthew was not into Lego at all and didn’t understand how to build it following the instructions. However as he got a lot of Lego for his birthday back in August, I sat down with him and we did a set every weekend. He slowly got the hang of it and he happily sits and builds things now.
