Sleep Over Fun and Day At Nana's!

Hubbie has been working away from home this week and is currently in Scotland visiting some whiskey distilleries.  To be honest I was not looking forward to hubbie being away for 3 days, as I find it can become very lonely and with the weather being poor, we haven't been able to venture out to any parks or do any outdoor activities. Fortunately, my mum took pity on us, and as it is half term she asked if the girls and I would like to go to hers for a sleepover!

We have never been to Nanas for a sleepover before, so Ruby was very excited and was up and about bright and early, bouncing around the house! I decided to give Ruby another early birthday pressie that I had stashed away, a rucksack; she is not going to have much left to open when its her birthday! She was delighted that I had brought her a princess rucksack to pack all her things in for the sleepover.

Ruby was very good at packing her bags and she included her nightie, clean clothes and underwear, a magazine, her nightlight and a toothbrush and toothpaste.

We arrived at Nanas late afternoon and the girls went over to Auntie Kayleighs flat to have a bath before joinng us for dinner. Nana treated us to roast dinner followed by not one, not two, but three puddings! Of course it would have been rude to not eat them all! We even had a huge sponge cake to celebrate the occasion!

Special Cake!

After dinner the girls went to bed; I was a little bit worried about how they would sleep as neither of them have ever slept anywhere else apart from our house, however they were both brilliant and fell asleep quickly.

This morning the girls slept in until 8am, the normal wake up time is closer until 6:30 - 7:00am!

We were treated to a lovely breakfast prepared by Nana. Ruby had her favourite jam on toast and Lottie enjoyed her plain toast, whilst I was treated to scrambled egg on a muffin, yummy! As the weather was really bad and horrible we spent the morning playing inside with the toys. We had to wait until Auntie Tegan and Uncle Harry woke up, and being typical teenagers, they didnt get out of bed until near midday!

The rain briefly stopped and we decided to head outdoors, if you haven't already read about Nanas house you can read about what a wonderful place it is in my previous post.

We got wrapped up warm, pulled on our wellies and headed out to help Nana and Auntie Tegan pick up the horses poo. Ruby had great fun finding the poo and telling everyone to come over and clean it up!

We then went and looked at grandads vegetable patch and Ruby was able to tell what all the various vegetables were; she told me that she wanted to make a rhubarb crumble cake with Grandad's rhubarb, like what we had made the other day.

Ruby also enjoyed walking through all the mud and ended up with very dirty wellies that had to be thoroughly washed down!


  1. Lovely to see your children learning how vegetables are grown. Years ago, I remember the teacher telling me that she asked all the children in my daughters reception year, where potatoes came from and my daughter was the only one who knew they grew in the ground(the others said Tesco, Sainsburys, Asda etc lol

    1. It is shocking that some children have no idea where things grow, this year were hoping to grow some veggies! xx
