Our beautiful little man was born at home on Sunday 14 April, at 10:25pm, weighing 8lbs and half an oz.

We couldn't be happier. He is perfect.

Here goes!

Tuesday, 2 April 2013

Today is my first 'proper' day of maternity leave and, I have to admit, I've been a little bit worried about how I am going to entertain a six and five year old every day, whilst being 38+ weeks pregnant. Good luck me!

So, I figured being uber-organised would be a good start and am planning an activity which doesn't take me too far from home every day this week. Not sure about next week.... I'll cross that bridge when I get to it.

My husband has promised to take the beanies out every morning for a walk/scoot with the dog before he goes to work, so that should help to use up some of their bags of energy early on. Leaving me to plan more subdued activities, which preferably don't involve too much walking around - this baby is lying way too low down most of the time for that!

Today's activity involved a delightful little local tearoom, earl grey, vintage china teacups and a bucket full of craft supplies. Right up my street.

We spent a lovely morning at an Easter craft session - starting off by making the obligatory chocolate easter nest cakes, followed by a spot of decopatch to decorate our very own Faberge-esque eggs. 

We love glitter!
This was our first experience of decopatch - its actually something I have wanted to try for a while, with the intention of covering a wooden chair in old Beano and Dandy comics for the playroom. One step at a time though.

After a couple of hours getting completely caked in PVA, pretty paper and glitter, we gathered up our easter nests, Faberge eggs, sampled some of the freshly-made cranberry and white chocolate welsh cakes and made our way home.

Verdict after the first day... so far so good. 

Let's see how we're getting on this time next week!
