A Fabulous Father's Day....

We had a lovely weekend and on Sunday my fella was spoilt rotten....We all managed to have a lie in until about 10am. Phew! Ellie was on about getting up early to give Stu his cards and presents....


Stu loved everything....He got socks, a mug, glass, hankies, a biscuit tin, a new screwdriver set and of course his cards....He was very impressed and loved all the super hero things....

We had big plans for the day.....We were going to go to the a fun day at the local park then out for our Sunday lunch....

Ellie and her monkey had matching outfits.....The shorts Ellie had on used to be jeans....I don't know where they came from but she didn't like them and wanted some new clothes for Monkey so Stu made him a little outfit then Ellie decided she wanted to keep the jeans as shorts so she matched...The things we do for our kids....lol


We went off to the park for the fun day but it wasn't exactly fun. There was a couple of stalls, a police van for kids to sit in and a tiny bouncy castle....We were quite disappointed.


We headed off to the playground for half an hour. The kids had a run around and Stu and I sat in the shade. Wow it was hot....


We decided to head home as the sweat was dripping off the kids....We passed by the tiny bouncy castle on the way home which caused a huge kick off from Ellie. She was too big for it and it was full of little kids. She huffed all the way home. Oh joy. 

At home we all sat and ate ice lollies which got Ellie out of her strop.....Going out for lunch was not what anyone wanted....It was too hot to eat a big meal. We had a sandwich and decided that we would just get a takeaway for tea.....

The girls spent the afternoon playing outside and Stu got to just play on his computer with no interruptions.....The water in the paddling pool was freezing but it didn't bother the girls in the slightest....I also gave them the hosepipe to play with. They had a fab afternoon....


They tidied the back yard, got dry and came in to do all the usual Sunday jobs like finding their uniform, finishing off homework and packing their bags.....When they had finished Ellie said she wanted to go back outside to play. Tennis or with a ball I thought. I went out to find her sat in the paddling pool in her PJ's.....lol Oh joy!

Pizza was eaten and the kids went off to bed....Stu had a perfect father's day. The day hadn't quite gone to plan but it worked out well in the end.....
