Yesterday was a lovely day. This Baby and I dropped That Baby off at school and then we went round to Belle's house for a cuppa with lots of my other favourite village Mum's. I love these kinds of catch ups, they make me feel so lucky to live where I do. Impressive E made her (frankly astounding) shortbread biscuits, which I shamelessly hoovered. Lucky was there with Baby Dinky. Belle's little girl Squeak and This Baby swapped toys and dribbled on things whilst we ate hot cross buns and chatted about all sorts of stuff. Belle and I decided to take the babies to a sing along session at a local library after Easter as we both felt like we missed singing nursery rhymes and the traditional old fashioned songs with our little girls. This Baby and Squeak will be in the same school year so it's lovely that they already know each other and will have formed a friendship. Should make starting in Nursery a little bit less scary. Not that much scares my little madam! She actually knows most of the other children that will be in her school year, another village benefit. I desperately wish things had been like that for me. I started one primary school, moved to another area, started another primary school didn't get on very well, moved to another, moved house again and found it really hard to fit in with anyone at my new school. I'd moved too much and friendship groups had already been formed and sealed. It wasn't my parents fault and there was nothing they could have done, but as a child I always felt like I was on the outside looking in. I was quite a sad child, I suppose that's one of the reasons I tried hard to amuse people, just to be allowed to be in the company of others for a while. But that's made me who I am today, so that's alright with me.
Mr Husband Sir and I went out for lunch together yesterday too. We haven't done this since This Baby was born. We've spent time together alone, but nothing so decadent as lunch. And it was goood! Although I did do the typical girl thing and want to swap starters because his blue cheese chicken and bacon salad looked yummier than my cheese thingys. He didn't mind though, good man.
Then This Baby and I went to the children's service at our Church. This was lovely, but a bit quiet yesterday. I suspect it was because it was being held a week early (because of Easter). I'm sorely tempted Ha!
Then we picked That Baby up from school and went to the swings with her friends. This was not so much fun, she bumped her head, she bumped her nose, it was cold and This Baby cried. But it was fresh air and this is good.
So all in all a rather lovely day! In other news yesterday my Bloglovin' feed went bandy so I had to get it reset. Apologies to anyone who was bombarded with six million of my old posts! I also featured in the Sponsor Spotlight on Kym's awe inspiring blog Deaf in the Kitchen. Check it out! And I've also set up the Just Pirouette and Carry On Facebook Page - see the link to the right. If you're so inclined I would love it dearly if you would check it out. I've reached 100 GFC followers on this lil'blog of mine, which I am insanely proud of. Again, thank you all so much. There's a sense of irony in many ways as now we all know that GFC is to be retired, but I don't care, nope not one jot! Thank you. Just thank you.
On another note, I find it endlessly hysterical that my traffic sources show that LOADS of people end up here after googling "Sexy Calendar Girls" and end up finding me yapping on about the Women's Institute. Sorry guys! I'm doing you a favour really YOU'LL GO BLIND!!!
I hope you all have fabulous weekends!
