Williamson's Park Butterfly House & Mini Beasts


Well it was just me, Jack & Freddie today. Tom & George wont stop fighting so they have been "grounded" for the day and had to stay home with Daddy. Mind you, I get so little quality time with Jack that this isn't a bad thing for us at all, and Tom is now scared of butterflies so we wouldn't have got here this summer if they had all come out today.

The weather is a bit iffy today to. It's been really warm, but very muggy, raining on and off, and it feel like we're due a thunder storm. Made for a cracking photo of the Ashton Memorial though!

A good day to do something indoors!

Jack loves the butterfly house. He spent ages waiting quietly and stock still (such an amazing feat for my fidget bum son) in the hope that a butterfly might choose to land on him.

And one did.... the tattiest, scrattiest butterfly you have ever seen landed on his HEAD! I got some photos of it so that Jack could actually SEE the butterfly that landed on him. I think he'd hoped to get a good long look at a butterfly if it landed on him, but oh hum. Sorry kid!

During a break in the rain we had a look round the garden, and Jack was thrilled to find some Bug Hotels which he remembered learning about in a school project we did together a few months ago. Then we had a look at the Mini Beasts, then the birds in the aviary, and the rabbits & guinea pigs in the pets area.

We had planned to get some lunch in the lovely cafe, but everyone else in the whole of Lancaster seems to have had the same idea and it was rammed.... so we nipped into town for a Subway instead which just finished the day perfectly for Jack!

Romance

Now, we don't really do Romance, Yorkie and I. We're not the sort of couple that goes to posh restraunts, buy hearts and flowers on a whim etc, but last night we had a really sweet night. We didn't really do much that was classically romantic, it was the mood, the feeling in the air, if you know what I mean....?

I cooked us steaks for tea, which is always a winner for Yorkie (his second fav after anything pork) and had the candles lit in the front room. Not that I was going for a romantic atmosphere, I just like to have candles lit on cold dark nights.

We snuggled up on the settee together, watching nothing much on telly, all warm and cozy under a blanket, with the cat curled up o us. We'd been talking a little bit about the wedding and stuff, and about what my doc had said to me about what to do before we start a family. Yorkie's eyes went all soft and sweet, he was hugging me close and saying all the right kind of sweet thinks that I love to hear.

It was one of thos…

Tom wanted a go at cooking this week. And beef kofta curry was his choice! Big helping hand from mum but he worked had and we had fun singing in the kitchen while we cooked. This "teaching life skills" is alright you know

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club.

Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue.

As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too.

When I got back to the school and queued up to get in and watch the belts be awarded I wound up chatting with another mum. We got on…
