My March 2016

Ok, so March has also flown by, and we’re well into April now, so this is a little late. But for the purpose of continuity, and because has March has actually been a good to us, I’ll squeeze my little review in. Really hoping that things will be able to resume back to normality in April and I'll be able to dedicate a bit more time to this here blog, too, which has been very much neglected of late. 

So here goes: 

1. A trip to the petting zoo, where the kids had lots of fun getting up close to ponies, goats, alpacas, guinea pigs, pigs, cows, etc. Becky was quite brave, wanting to stroke all the animals (she's not normally), and Alex is also developing a real interest in them, too, so this was a nice little venture out.

2. We finally completed on our old / new house. It was quite a complex process and it felt like absolute ages until it finally became ours (even though in actual terms – and in hindsight – it was relatively efficient, but it felt like the most stressful, anxiety ridden lifetime ever at the time). Now the renovations and redecorations are under way, and we have lots of plans to make this house our proper home. I just have to be a bit more patient and accept that we won’t be able to do everything at once, and that some things will take their time and be done step by step.

3. The first ice cream outdoors of the year. I must say that it went down rather well. You can tell by Becky's expression, no? 

4. More outdoorsy outings, and Alex is totally in his element at the playground. He is fearless, and isn’t happy going on the toddler slides – he wants to be on the tallest, most complex things, like the big boys and girls. It’s lovely to see him so happy though, even though he is such a handful! 

5. A little Easter indulgence – Becky and I baked a totally gooey, chocolately chocolate cake and it was yummy. I will post the recipe on here at some point, as it was so good. I’ll just have to bake it again and take some better snaps, as this was just a quick pic with my iphone and doesn’t do it any justice.

6. We spent Easter at the in-laws in the Brecon Beacons, and even though the weather was not on our side (it never is, when we go there!), we still went for a little roadtrip and walkabout to take in the stunning scenery. You gotta love the Beacons, even in the rain!
