A week with the kids

This week Dd 1 had another school break so instead of paying a child minder for 4 whole days I decided to take annual leave. I still had 8 days to take before the end of March so I had to start taking some days off anyway.
I just got an important new task at my work so for that reason I was a bit sorry to take so many days off but my task got covered by my BackUp and I was just really thrilled to be a week off and to be able to spend so much time with the kids again.Yay !
I was really finding it hard that I couldn't see the baby so often so I really needed this week. And I really enjoyed my week off ! Glory to God !
I only took the baby to the creche on Wednesday and Friday afternoon so it won't be strange for her when she has to go back for 4 whole days next week.
I'm really not looking forward to next week but yeah, we'll be okay, I guess.
I didn't get to do many fun things with them, unfortunately.
I only took Dd1 to the playground one day, together with a friend of hers. But just getting to spend time with them was great.
I can't wait for the next week off and hopefully I've learned to drive better then and I can take them to an animal farm and maybe swimming or something else.
I still never took the baby swimming inspite of getting her a really cute little swimsuit months ago. I don't know if it will still fit. She's a bit small for 8 months so maybe.. I hope I can take her for her first swim soon.
Her sister had her first swim when she was 11 weeks old,but I wasn't so busy in that time. Maybe I'll be getting this.

Anyway, I'm really so grateful for this week. Yaaay ! Just wish my days off would never end lol Well, I have to work to earn money so that makes it necessary.
As a matter of fact, next week it will be payday again. Yay !
Have a great weekend all. Gods richest blessings...

It's Summer time / Giveaway (closed)

It’s officially Summer here in Ireland, even though most of the time  it is hard to see it when you look outside. There are days when there have been some sunny spells but the sun has been hiding behind dark clouds on most of those days as well. This week it's supposed to be a good week weather wise.  A few weeks ago the sun was shining since the morning and after dropping the two older girls at school, I decided to take Nevaeh for a walk to the park close by and to feed the ducks. On the way to the park the sun was so much in my eyes that I decided to stop at the Dunnes Stores and get sun glasses. Since Nevaeh was so interested in mine I got her some too. Mini mouse ones. She loves them. The week after, it was the turn for the older girls to get sun glasses. Hello Kitty ones for Yovannah. And pink, sparkly ones for Ixora. They really love their sun glasses and wear them on sunny days.

Since this post is post nr. 60 of my blog I decided to do a little give away.

Mummy, I need your 'pookie'

It’s World Breastfeeding Week from August 1st to August 7th 2013 and this year’s theme is Breastfeeding Support: Close to Mothers. You can read more about it on The focus is on community support, particularly in the form of peer-to-peer support.
To show support for World Breastfeeding Week, the Irish Parenting Bloggers group is holding a blog march about varied breastfeeding experiences, including experiences with breastfeeding support in Ireland. This inspired me to write a post about breastfeeding as well.

My breast feeding journey
When I was pregnant with my first child, I decided that it would be a great idea to combine breast- and bottle feeding. But in the hospital they convinced me how healthy and important it was to breastfeed exclusively and then I decided to go that road. I got a breast pump to express milk so my baby could get a bottle with breast milk when I was out and about or for the scarce times that I would leave her in the care of h…
