So Monday, after the dreaded school drop off, we scurried (ssshhh quite literally) off to Bills Restaurant to experience their delicious breakfasts. I think this may be my favourite mini-date, the breakfast thing - after all who needs a lunch date when you have pancakes, right?!

It's been a long time since my husband and I snuck in a breakfast date. We've done the odd 'whilst our boy is at school' lunch, coffee and cake date, but breakfast? Never. In fact it has probably been years since we actually did this together. *I'm so not exaggerating!*

Ah, swimming. You've been a real tricky one for my boy - cue a terrified little one at the start, fearful of the water going anywhere near his face and wouldn't dream of going under. One to one lessons beckoned back in December and we have the most super teacher, his confidence has just grown and grown.
Tonight he got his badges and is swimming unaided, totally on his own. Apparently he's not far off Stage 2 either. *Proud parent alert*
My little fish, now jumping in, going under and most importantly loving it all. It's so important for them to learn to swim...

So my boy's favourite time of year is approaching.
He tells me it's a tricky choice but he thinks it's slightly better than Christmas and even his birthday?! Put it this way, he's definitely feeling the ghosts and zombie thing that's for sure. He has his outfits planned (he's rather particular about what type of zombie he wants to be - I'm informed it must be a football one) and I'm under strict instructions that our house must be rather spooky looking.

You know when you have one of those days that's just kind of perfect. Nothing too fancy planned but it just ends up being rather lovely. Well, this was us yesterday. A morning of football for my boy, he scored a whopping FIVE goals and he tells me "mummy I will never ever forget today at football", an afternoon of raspberry picking and collecting eggs (we finally fitted it in), followed by a lovely meal out with great friends.
