Swimming babies.

This morning we took the boys swimming. It was the first time Drew had been, and to be honest only about he 4th time Harry has been. We went to the pool at my gym, which is soooooo nice and warm. Harry was a bit unsure at first and did the whole clinging like a limpet thing, but as time went on he was happy to start kicking about and 'swim like a shark'. Drew LOVED it from the moment he got in. The only downside for him was that me being a bad mummy left his swim nappy at home, so he went swimming in an ordinary pampers!!! I swear to god it weighed the same as he did when we got out the!!!The bonus of going to a private pool was that we could take photos... ok so they're not the best, but at least we have a record of Drew's first time in the water... we didn't get the opportunity with Harry because of all the over the top rules about taking photos in public places. I'm all for child protection, but seriously the world has gone a little mad... you can't even take pics of your own child in a library now!!!
Today has been another beautiful weather day, and this afternoon has been spent in the garden. Rob dug out dome trees that had been killed by the snow, Oliver collected snails, worms and bugs *ick*, Harry picked a dandewion for me *awwwwwww* and Drewpot discovered the playhouse. So 3 dirty but happy children... don't you just love sunny weather?
I've been going to the gym most nights, and I feel so much better for doing so... even though you can't tell any difference yet. Just how is that fair that you tell as soon as you gain weight and can gain so easily, but to shift it takes an age and you have to lose loads before you can tell!!! Any way, I'm not giving up... already the programme I have been given is getting easier to do, so that has to be a good thing right?

I've not been doing much scrapping lately. I finished this LO that was started at the crop a couple of weeks ago. It's one of those things that had to be recorded before it was forgotten... Pegward Cullen... the £1 peg bought by Oliver from a mini industry sale at school!
I got a lovely parcel from Sarahscards this week with these papers, alphas, stickers, sprouts, bazzill half edges and tape in... sooooo excited to play with these and have already done one LO... here's a sneak peak of the first LO, but keep an eye out on the Sarahscards blog to see what I do with them. Don't forget that there are monthly challenges to play along with, and you can win a voucher to spend at the shop... free stash has to be good thing, so why not play along and leave a link to your work :)

Righty ho... it was just a quick one... I need to get back to my book, which has just got to a very good bit... you'll never guess what it's about???

Vampires of course... lol. I'm so loving the Sookie Stackhouse series... I just wish I had an Eric in my life *sigh*
