Valentine’s and my love

My baby is the love of my life, and always will be, but it is nice to have a mummy and daddy date too. We both took a day off work and sent Henry to childcare as normal. I packed him a little treat today though, in the form of an iced gingerbread heart.

We went for lunch – and managed to both have a hot meal! We even went to the cinema to see Disney’s Wreck-It-Ralph. It was brilliant, and we both really enjoyed it. I think that is going to be one for the DVD collection.

And I’m even writing this on my brand new Kindle Fire. I’m a very spoilt lady, and I have safely kept my new toy away from mucky fingers and slobber for at least this evening. It has been a lovely day, and the sun has been shining in an otherwise cold and even snowy February.

Happy Valentine’s Day everyone.


My First Library Card

I signed Henry up to the library, and re-registered myself after the stolen/missing purse incident of 2009. He has a really cute little card with a picture of Elmer the elephant on the front and his name on the back.

I want Henry to enjoy books like I did. I was the one in the class that needed a new reading list book about three times as often as everybody else just because I filled it up so quickly. I used to be like Matilda, just not a genius with magical abilities and my parents always encouraged my reading.

I hope, with my support, he learns to love the written word too. And I guess he can borrow my Kindle…
