We’ve got a busy day today.
First task of the day Bella’s new Babyballet class. Bella has moved up a class now she’s 3. I’m not happy it’s an early morning start though. 9am starts I hate. We were at a new venue as well as having a new class and a new teacher so I wasn’t sure how it was going to go.
When we got there it was a bit different, instead of sitting with Bella on the mats all the parents sit along the side of the class and watch. Bella wasn’t too happy with that. She wouldn’t leave my side but that’s ok. It’s all new so I expected her to be nervous. She was much better when they were performing little dances and not having to sit or dance on her individual mat.
She did pretty well at her first big girl ballet class. Another mum reassured me that it had taken a while for her daughter to settle and join in with the others so not to worry.
After class we headed home to get changed before we headed off to go see Leanne for our birthday. Daly was dropping us off at Leanne’s and was then going to head off to entertain himself.
We made it to Leanne’s and said goodbye to Daly. We headed inside for a little bit before we decided to take a walk into town and get some lunch. We made our minds up to go to Wetherspoons for lunch as we always love a Wetherspoons lunch.
We got all bundled up in our coats and popped Bella in the pram and walked into town. Now the walk from Leanne’s to town nearly killed me. I mean I’m fine walking on my own but pushing a pram it knackers me. It didn’t help that town was slightly up hill from Leanne’s and it decided to rain and then hail.
On our way we took shelter under a bus shelter with an old lady. Bella was throwing a fit because of the hail and screaming and crying so I took the time while we were under the shelter to pop on the rain cover. I had been just using her hood while we had been walking in the rain but the hail was hitting her legs and hurting her so definitely time for the rain cover.
We said goodbye to the lady as the rain had eased and continued our walk into town. We eventually made it to Wetherspoons which was pretty busy. Thankfully we managed to find a booth and sat down. I sorted Bella out and she sat next to me while Leanne sat opposite.
To make life easy, especially with a toddler, we ordered via the app, each ordering our own food on our own apps. Bella chose a pizza and I’m so glad they now serve that. It makes it much easier to pick something for Bella that isn’t too messy. I ordered a jacket potato and while we were waiting Leanne and I caught up on everything we’d been up to and discussed Bella’s birthday trip.
We enjoyed a lovely meal in Wetherspoons and then we made our way back to Leanne’s. It had stopped raining and was starting to brighten up so it was a much nice walk back than to town. And the fact we were going down hill that made it 20 times easier to walk home. We continued to chat while we walked home with Leanne telling me all about her recent trip to London.
Once we got back to Leanne’s we sat down with a cup of tea and opened our presents. Leanne always spoils us. I really am so lucky to have her in my life.
She had bought Bella some Little Mermaid pyjamas, a stitch water bottle, and a cute little summer dress with daisys all over it. Leanne had bought me some Thumper pyjamas (the girl knows which Disney characters we love), and some Alice in Wonderland pens. I believe there was something else but I have completely forgotten – I’m so sorry Leanne , I love you!
We carried on chatting and enjoying our tea before Daly turned up to pick us up at 3pm. We said our goodbyes and then we headed off home.
The rest of the day was a pretty chilled out one. Daly headed off out in the evening so Bella and I snuggled up in our new PJs and enjoyed so Saturday night TV.
Anyways, night all and let’s see what adventures tomorrow holds for us.
