I hope you are all enjoying the Easter break,and thought you might like to share our day..starting with a kind gift for Thomas,from one of our lovely neighbours..so thoughtful .:o)..you can see,he had soon made a start on the egg !


Outside,in my shoes.?.not for long,young man..it’s welly time!:o)..you have work to do…


Come on ,Thomas..get shovelling..we have a lot to move off the plants..


You are doing a grand job..keep going,only one more mound to do..


OK then..you have the trowel,and I’ll have the snow shovel..


You have worked so hard,Thomas..you have earned another little Easter egg,and thank you :o)


I hope you are lucky enough to get out in your gardens,as we were today…it felt so good to be out there..and I didn’t really work him so hard..honest !He loved it..either that,or he is keeping in the good books,for his third birthday next week !Lol..

Just adding another couple of photo’s of this afternoons outing..we went for lunch to the Yorkshire Yummy Icecream Company..it really is called that,and lives up to it’s name…very yummy…lots of free activities for the children..so Thomas had his first taste of go Karting,in the barn.with a little help from Grandad,now and then,.and hunting the yellow discs in the straw..for which he received a bag of mini Smarties..


So far,we are having a lovely Easter..:o)

30 Mar, 2013

 

Thank you,Kidsgran..he is a happy little lad,and I agree,a stick,or shovel..or whatever he lays his hand on ,is fun ...to him !..not always to me:o) The snow he shovelled,up,he put in my compost bin.. He couldn't throw it over the fence...it was a bit dry in there,anyway .I shall give it a stir round tomorrow...Lol...

He is such a happy chappy Sandra it's obvious he loves his Granny and Granddad and looks forward to his visits to you ,, you do know the ball and chain won't work forever and that you will have to start paying him LOL .... x

30 Mar, 2013

 

Amy, my son won't help me even if I DO pay him!! ;)

30 Mar, 2013

 

No baby about him now Sandra, cannot believe how he's changed, you have a bonny lad on your hands now and a right cheeky little look on his face as well, he looks a bundle of fun and very industrious clearing the snow, he's earned his Easter Gifts, did nannie get one as well?
Happy Easter to you all....

............
Thank you Neena..we both had fun out there..all my plants are snow free now..they don't look good this morning in minus 5 ! Hope all yours will be ok..I think it will warm up later,like yesterday..and so glad the lighter nights are here at last :o)
..........
Thank you Amy,it's lovely when they like to come,isn't it? we have to make the most of their young days..tiring though! but I slept like a log last night :o) His other grandparents arrived from Spain last night,so it will be nice for him to see them this morning..he goes all quiet when he is on Skype with them..so he will be chattering away ,when he sees them :o)
............
Cheers Sue..he keeps telling me ,he is a big boy now:o)
not too big to still enjoy a cuddle though..hope it lasts for a long time yet ...I didn't get an Easter egg..but got stuck in to a large bar of chocolate instead :o) .
.........
Thank you Pam..it has taken me weeks to suss out how to post photo's on this new laptop..even though his dad has tried to show me a few times..very slow to learn these days..! Glad it has finally sunk in at last..just in time for Easter..have a lovely day too x

Thanks Paul..still a bit overcast here yet,but hopefully,set to get better as the day goes on..another very cold night to come tonight:o(...a very happy young man..! :o))

31 Mar, 2013

 

Lovely blog B. Wishing you all a very Happy Easter too, I can see you have a house full! We only have our daughter here and no children! So will be quiet here until next week and then they will all descend. Happy days. Thomas is quiet a young man now :)

31 Mar, 2013

 

Happy Easter Sandra :o)
It looks more like mid winter in your photos but Thomas doesn't seem to mind lol

31 Mar, 2013

 

Thanks G.mage..His mum was working,and his dad was going to Manchester to pick his parents up from the airport..not much fun for Thomas,so my devious plan of him helping with snow shifting,worked well ! Lol...the quiet before the storm for you then,next week ? enjoy your peaceful time with your daughter,while it lasts :o)

31 Mar, 2013

 

Thank you Hywel..we still have lots of the white stuff here,but slowly receding..I still have a mountain of it in the front garden..wonder if Thomas wants to come over again ? Lol...he loved it,and kept saying "back to action " everytime he emptied his trowel...bless him :o)

31 Mar, 2013

31 Mar, 2013

 

Happy Easter Thomas, Bloomer & all x

31 Mar, 2013

31 Mar, 2013

 

Love this blog, Sandra, especially the 3rd pic with him in your shoes! Just look at his expression ... brilliant!

No chocolate for us this Easter ... but I really could demolish some Smarties now you've mentioned them ... :o)

31 Mar, 2013

 

A lovely blog Bloomer. I love to see Thomas and his beaming smile. I don't get to see my lot until tomorrow. Can't wait....

31 Mar, 2013

 

I too love to see his smile. He obviously LOVES being with you and is happy doing so many different things - a great combination of work and play but in fact it is all play to him and he enjoys himself so much!

31 Mar, 2013

 

Lovely blog about gorgeous Thomas....

31 Mar, 2013

 

Happy Easter Sandra and Russell, sorry Im a little late! love your pictures of Thomas, he looks as though he has really enjoyed himself, its a pity you didnt bring him round to help us with the fencing lol Very kind of your neighbour to make him that lovely Easter Chick! '0))

1 Apr, 2013

 

Thank you,Shirley..he was crying shortly after..insisted he could put his Dinosaur wellies on himself..he did..but on the wrong feet..so fell over ! soon up and attacking the snow though :o) thanks for PM,will reply later.
............
Thank you Chris..a tedious task made enjoyable with his help :o) we had a lovely afternoon..just good for them to get some fresh air,and exercise..and for me too :o)
..........
Thank you Moti..have you had much snow where you are?
..........
Thank you Carole..I did think about you both with your new fencing..and he would have been in his element 'helping' you..he does have his own screwdriver,and saw :o)..I'm sure some more chocolate would have been acceptable as payment :o) We have just heard he has a new cousin this morning..another little boy for Anthony's brother and his wife..not due for another two weeks,but both well..guess he didn't want to miss out on Easter ! Lol.

1 Apr, 2013

 

never heard of that place Bloomer, where is it,

1 Apr, 2013

 

It's on Penistone road,Val..carry on past the Sovereign pub at Shepley,towards Sheffield..through Birdsedge,and High flatts,it's on the right hand side..and signposted..I don't know if they do meals,but they have sandwiches,toasties and hot beef teacakes..plus lovely homemade cakes and scones ,and their coffee is lovely ! :o)

1 Apr, 2013

 

we will have to keep that one in mind for when the better weather comes, thanks

1 Apr, 2013

 

You are welcome,Val..we hadn't been before,but Alison had looked at it online,to find something for Thomas to do over Easter..which didn't cost the earth! ..all the childrens things were free,just a suggestion box for donations to their charity for sick children....it is a working farm too,mainly cows I think..

1 Apr, 2013

 

somewhere to take Maya to when she comes up.

1 Apr, 2013

 

You might have to check first Val..not sure if they only do these events at Bank holidays..you could google it,to see..

1 Apr, 2013

 

o.k. thanks, Cannon hall is good, she would love it there.

1 Apr, 2013

 

So do we,Val..but we have been waiting till he was old enough to appreciate the farm there..so expensive for a family ,isn't it? probably this summer sometime ,and he can run wild in the park :o)

1 Apr, 2013

 

good idea to go in the summer, as you say he can run about then, I think maya would love it there now,

1 Apr, 2013

 

Definitely..nice cafe too..:o)

1 Apr, 2013

 

Love the new photos.....romping in the straw, what fun, not done that since I was a girl!!! LOL

1 Apr, 2013

 

Lovely blog Sandra, think everybodys said all the things I was going to say about Thomas, but I'll say them anyway, he is a lovely, cheeky faced little boy, and I'm sure he didn't need a ball and chain to help you. It's funny how they put adults shoes on, Lewis who is 10, came outside to us the other day, (when we were having a crafty smoke) in his Grandads shoes. The way he's growing, he'll soon be in size 9's like him. Keep sending his photos in. :-))))))

2 Apr, 2013

 

Now that conjures up a picture,G.mage ! Lol..we had lots of farms and Haystacks where we used to live in Cumbria..great fun in the summer..my parents had a fit when they found out we used to climb to the top of them,and either slide down or jump off ..no idea till I fell off one,and dislocated my thumb :o)) ...Thomas loved scrabbling around in the straw..first time he has seen it..he got up very close to a cows face in a pen.he wasn't so sure about that one :o)..I think it was the heavy breathing ! Lol

2 Apr, 2013

 

Thank you Val,all children love wearing our shoes don't they? Glad you enjoyed the blog..and great we can capture the moment on our cameras or mobiles these days..wish they had been available when all our own children were little..we missed so many memorable shots..maybe as well,for their sakes :o))

2 Apr, 2013

 

The proof is in the pudding so to say, its very obvious from your lovely photos that you had a very happy easter.

2 Apr, 2013

 

Thank you Stroller..I hope you did too..more celebrations today,as it is Thomas's third birthday..he also got a new cousin on Monday,,another little boy..a busy week all round,but a happy one :o)

3 Apr, 2013

 

I quite agree Sandra about cameras and phones. I've made photo albums for my g.children, they get it when they are 16, mostly of their earlier days, 2 down 2 to go!
Give Thomas a birthday hug from me :-)

3 Apr, 2013

 

They bring such pleasure don't they B ? and the questions they ask! Hilarious. Do I read correctly, you have another grandchild born??

3 Apr, 2013

 

Good idea,Val..and thank you,I will pass on the hug from you :o) ''He had a lovely time at the park in the afternoon..the fair was there,so he had his first Helter Skelter ride :o)
....
They certainly do,G.mage..we are waiting for the questions :o) and no .not a new grandchild..a new cousin for him..his dad's brother's baby..met him yesterday as they came up to Thomas's house with his present..and it was lovely to have a cuddle..his name is Jacob Oliver..you forget how tiny they are at two days old :o)

4 Apr, 2013

 

Oh B you do they are so tiny aren't they and such little treasures. Thought that you another little one to come and play! Love Jacob's name. x

4 Apr, 2013

 

I think everyone loved a cuddle,and his little two year old brother Zachary is lovely with him..Alison made sure he had a present to open too,as we didn't want him to feel left out..as there were gifts for Jacob,,as well as Thomas..he was so chuffed :o) Thomas has gone to a local cinema this morning ..first visit..a really old fashioned traditional one,..his mum has just sent me a message to say he and his friend are fascinated by the Organist who still plays there..and no doubt they will enjoy it when the Usherette comes round in the interval ! takes you back a bit,doesn't it ?

4 Apr, 2013

 

Not arf B. hilarious, an organist still?? Those were the days B. happy and carefree. Glad everyone got pressies it is such a happy time. x

4 Apr, 2013

 

Isn't it just,G.mage? Alison sent me a pic..the Organist is a very mature lady ! and has been playing there for years..Thomas fidgeted all the way through the film..she said she was glad she hadn't taken him to the Odeon,at their prices :o) I bet she wasn't pleased !Lol. They went to a local park afterwards to work off their energy :o))

4 Apr, 2013

 

We have our brood coming over tomorrow for a few days so think we might go running in the woods, possibly play some mini golf and maybe visit a farm that has some lambs there. Must keep them busy, will be able to collapse on Tuesday! Lol. x

4 Apr, 2013

 

You know you love it,G.mage..enjoy the time with them all :o)

5 Apr, 2013

 

Thanks B. :)) I will. x

5 Apr, 2013

 

Hi Sandra...

6 Apr, 2013
