After looking around all the great little shops there. Stopping at the charity and fabric shop for more gorgeous buttons. And dropping in on the sweetie shop with an Aladdin's cave in the back of it. The girls came away happy with a new pink bucket each. Just the right size for little ones and ice-cream pictures on the sides. Happy faces, happy Mummy.
"My tummies rumbling Mummy" says Daisy "can you see it grumbling?" lol
So it's banana milkshake and chips for us all, yummy! There is nothing like chips with a bit of sand on the side (thanks Daisy). lol
Now for some playtime, collecting water in their buckets and pouring it all down the front of themselves lol (it's only water I told myself with sigh).
After lots of trips back and forth, Molly shouted out "look Mummy a crab" here he is Mr Crab lol I didn't have the heart to tell them he was dead :( poor crabby lol The girls where so happy that they'd found one and I had to make sure I got a good photo to show their Daddy. Then we popped him back into the water to float off. "Bye bye Mr Crab" they shouted. I said off he goes to find Mrs Crab lol they where happy to hear that.
A little bit more playing and sand pile building, the sea started to come in and it was time to make a move home. By the time I got to the train station Daisy was fast asleep but Molly was full of chit chat. Bless her, she saw the nursery on the other side of the station with all the children playing outside and said "look Mummy those are all my friends I'm going to play there with them soon" with a heavy heart I know our little Miss cupcake is at the age for playgroup and I must sort one out for her. Baby bounce is great fun but not enough now for Molly she wants to do big girl things (that's what she calls them) and I know I must let her go. It will be good for her and Daisy to have their own time. It' just so heart breaking because I've been so very lucky to have all the time in the world with the two them, something I've got so used too. Working from home is the best thing in the world for me because even when there are orders coming out of my ears, my time is set by me and no one else. And I relish every moment with them when I'm not painting or sewing. Playing games, sitting and reading, drawing, watching films, days out or just snuggle time.
I'm sure all my sad feelings will disappear when I see how happy Molly is in her new playgroup, I just need to find a lovely one. It's very hard to choose, we all want to wrap our little ones up in cotton wool and not expose them to the big wide world (sigh). I'm so scared for her.
Many hugs everyone x
