Today we went round to the Grandparents' and decided to pitch our new tent that we managed to nab in the Boxing Day Sales for just £165 a complete bargain as it usually retails at £400! We put it up to check over and the children had great fun running around it and helping up to fold it back up! They can't wait for our first camping trip of the year!
Monday was a long day, busy in work and the weather was miserable! We were shattered and shivering when we got home so I threw together a quick dinner of Pasta Bake and Salad, it was just was we needed to warm up!
Today I took the afternoon off work to attend the Negotiation Academy put on by WeBuyAnyCar.com it was a great afternoon and I learnt a lot, I also enjoyed the yummy afternoon tea at the luxurious Great John Street Hotel in Manchester. Look out for the first post this weekend!
The Boots 70% off Sale started today and I went straight to the Manchester Arndale Store after work and stocked up on bargain gifts, toys and hair products to last the year. Pictured are some great craft sets I got that will be perfect for rainy day fun!
Elizabeth baked cakes at Pre-School today and showed it off to us very proudly when we picked her up!
On Friday I joined some fellow bloggers and good friends to celebrate the lovely Karen aka Grumpyish Mum's Birthday at the Frog & Bucket Comedy Club in Manchester, it was a fab night and we may have drank a little bit of Vino...
After an early start for Babyballet (while I was still feeling a bit delicate!) we popped t the shops to buy a new bookcase to store all the new books that Father Christmas brought the Children and decided to treat ourselves to lunch at Pizza Hut, Ben was a little disappointed to see the menu no longer offered the smiley face Pizza so he decided to make his own from his side salad!
