Ok, let's hope this works this time, I had just typed out an entire post and then it managed to delete itself! So frustrating!!
Anyway, we have been enjoying our new member of the family, he is settling in beautifully!
Apart from waking us up horribly early in the morning, he is doing really well, (it really is like having a baby again!) and we have all fallen in love with him!
I was lucky enough to win Hadley's fab anniversary giveaway:-
She sent me a beautiful fabric covered notebook and keyfob, plus some pretty fabric, thread, herbal tea and two gorgeous quilt patterns. Thank you so much Hadley!!! This certainly helped me to feel less sad about missing out on FQR!
Our summer hols have been pretty chilled so far, what with getting used to our furry friend, but this week J had some one-to-one swimming lessons and managed to swim a whole length of the pool on his back. Just using his legs, mind, but this is a huge achievement for him, as, whilst he loves being in the water, he has no confidence in his ability to swim very far - "it's too hard". Hopefully this will boost his confidence and help him continue to improve, so I was a very proud mum!
