Hello lovely readers, I am just sneaking in with last weeks 52 project photos, another busy week left me a bit frazzled, so today I managed to grab a few photos,  Most weekends time is always spent at our dining table, George is getting a lot more homework these days and I do feel pretty blessed that he is happy to get on with it, he likes to get things right, he is a perfectionist and he does love to learn.

 Tilly is always more than happy to sit and colour but her ultimate favourite activity is the dreaded play doh! Fortunately we avoided that this weekend!

3/52 - Mornings

Hello lovely readers!

Thanks goodness for Friday, I am struggling with these cold mornings,  I just can't get back into the swing of the school run at all! Thank goodness George is on the ball most mornings he gets up and gets dressed, he will come bursting into my room, dressed and raring to go and breakfast isn't an issue he get a high five and lots of praise from me which he loves!

Tilly on the other hand is a bit more relaxed......... 'Can I just stay in bed and watch Milk Shake mummy?!'

This is a typical 7:50 am scenario one dressed, breakfast eaten teeth done etc, the other one needs to be prized off the sofa!!

How long till half term........??

Book Review - City Atlas by Georgia Cherry and Martin Haake

We love colourful books with cool illustrations so we were very excited when this new city Atlas from Wide Eyed Book Series arrived for a review.

This book details 30 most loved cities in the world with key landmarks, famous people, hot spots to visit and child friendly destinations. The colourful and eye catching illustrations are done by Martin Haake, 

George loved it, there are some interesting facts about each city, I was amazed to discover the population in London is 8.3 million compared to 4.2 in Sydney! We chatted about some of the cities Daddy and I have travelled to and George homed in on New York ' I definitely want to visit here mummy' it's a lovely atlas to use to make some travelling plans with your little ones as its so colourful and inspiring. 

This book is great for pre-school age and above even as an adult I found it really inspiring and the search and find game of each city is a great way to get your little ones to explore the pages. 

I would definitely recommend this atlas it looks lovely displayed on George's book wedge in his room too.

City Atlas retails at £20.00 which I feel is an excellent value for such a lovely book with beautiful illustrations and will be enjoyed by our family year after year.

Disclosure: We were sent this book by Wide Eyed Editions in a exchange for a review.

Hello lovely readers, so just popping in to share this weeks photo, Saturdays are always about taking it slow and enjoying breakfast together and due to popular demand pancakes are normally on the menu!

Getting my two, to look at the camera is always a challenge but I do love how Tilly is smiling at her big brother.

This blogging break really wasn't planned there have been some big changes at home,  I am just not ready to write about them yet. However I have been feeling really cross with myself that I didn't manage to post the rest of my photos for my 52 Memories Project so please excuse the image heavy post!

52 Memories - week 42 & 43

My little ones are at that stage where they tend to play in their rooms a lot more,  I have to say there was a time when I just thought I couldn't wait for them to play more independently and the carnage of toys downstairs seemed never ending! Tilly still has a few toys in our family/dining room there are lots of board games and books and they love to sit at the table and do some drawing or get the play dough out, but the majority of their toys are upstairs in their rooms and after school once they have had a drink and a snack they tend  to play upstairs, our home is not huge at all so I still get the noise and I can hear them running in and out each other rooms, they bicker a bit and they do have a habit of spreading toys all over the landing which is slightly annoying as we have the smallest landing in the world. Their rooms do get in a mess but I have slowly become a bit more relaxed about this and whilst I in courage them to tidy up, I also let them enjoy their space and often I will be stepping over the lego in George's room while he is asleep and I am trying to put laundry away!

Tilly loves being in her room its lovely listening to her playing with her toys and serving up tea for her teddies, she has such a wonderful imagination its such a sweet age.

George is still all about his cars, lego and angry birds! He too has a wonderful imagination.

I do secretly miss them being downstairs though especially as we are not having any more babies I feel that stage has come to an end.

I will be back with some photos soon for this project I so need to play catch up again, but I am looking forward to looking back on them at the end of the year.  If you're entertaining little ones this half term hope your having a lovely time and thanks for stopping by.
