The day after Peyton’s party we went down to Bristol to meet my cousin baby boy Leo. He was so cute and adorable. I got a lot of cuddles and got to fees him. Both of our girls loved him too. They did get rather jealous when Daddy held Leo.
So last weekend, 3rd May, we had Peytons rearranged party. A month after her actual birthday because of them having chicken pox. It was a really fun day, our house was filled to the brim, at the max we had 35 people there (11 of those being children). Peyton started off her party with tears, but as the saying goes “it’s my party and i’ll cry if I want to!”
So the past week I don’t have a lot to report… Just my usual weekly schedule, visiting my Grandparents on wednesday and Kayleigh started back at playgroup on the Thursday!
I’m quite excited for this term! It’s her last one before the summer holidays and then she’ll be off to school! They have a lot of exciting things planned: trips to Cotswold Wildlife Park and to see Peppa Pig in theatre; and they have a photographer in to take pictures of the class and finally they have a busy last week. During the last week they have a water fun day (weather dependant); they have a trip on a steam train and teddy bears picnic; and then they have a graduation ceremony and buffet lunch for children and parents. So exciting and I can’t wait.
On to the pain side of the post…
I’ve been in excruciating pain for ages now. The doctors had me on ibs medicine for so long that wasn’t working but now I have an endoscopy planned for about a weeks time to look at what is going on inside me. I am terrified but after last night, where I was up in agony (so much pain that I thought I was going to be sick) from 23:55 to 01:45 ish. It is horrible and nothing stops it nor does it make it easier to bear, no painkillers even take the edge off of the pain! Hopefully these tests sort something out for me.
Started off with Good Friday, which was also my brothers birthday. I went shopping in town with him and my girls during the day. And he came back to mine after with Billy (his dog).

Later in the evening me, Jai ( who’s managed to book the evening off work, Kayleigh and Peyton met my brother and his fiancée in Wetherspoons for a meal. Stupidly though I forgot to bring in the cake that mum had made for him, so they came to ours after the meal.
Saturday was a relaxed morning as Jai was working but we went him in the afternoon for food shopping and then I got ready to go out with my new friends from the baby group I joined. Jai had a couple of mates round for drinks whilst I went to Leanne’s for pre-drinks. She even gave me a present from her recent holiday to Las Vegas.
Then we walked to Yates’ to get more drinks and dance 🙂 was a fun night.
A bit later their friend Vicki joined us, I kind of know her previously (one of Jai’s old friends girlfriends) but they spent a while bitching about her and then she showed up craving some attention and left again (less than 15 mins with us!).
After we moved on to Fever (but Tash was too drunk to get in).. They went to move onto V Club but I really didn’t want to go there so left and went home, plus my feet hurt bad lol. Jai had waited up for me 🙂
The next morning (Easter Sunday) I felt fine. Jai cooked me a full english for brunch and then we gave Kayleigh her Easter eggs (Peyton was asleep!)
Then Jai went to work.. After he’d left my hangover kicked in.. I wasn’t too bad but bit of a headache and my tummy hurt. After Jai finished he’d planned to go round his friend Tyler’s for few drinks for his birthday. I’d text my brother to see if he’d come round to “watch” the girls (they were already in bed), but had no reply. Just as Jai was about to leave my brother text back and said he would come over, so I rushed to get ready and go round Tyler’s.. We didn’t stay long but was nice to get out.
Where to begin! Well since I last posted we’ve been busy! I had to take my youngest Peyton to have her 1 year vaccinations. I hate taking them. to have them done as they get so upset it’s heartbreaking!
Then the friday of that week my oldest Kayleigh had a birthday party to go to, and stupidly I forgot it was supposed to be fancy dress! But she had fun regardless, there was a bouncy castle and she got her face painted.
although annoyingly they were given name tags and her name was spelt “Kayley”. Afterwards we went over to visit my mum who had just had surgery on her wrist for carpel tunnel. We spent most of the afternoon there until I had to come home to feed the kids. Kayleigh then decided to say that she wanted to stay with Nanny and said “I don’t love you mummy!”, which was a bit hurtful but I know she doesn’t quite understand love.
Then Sunday we took advantage of the beautiful weather and went over to Evesham park! We fed the swans, ducks and geese and then played in the children’s area.
Then on Wednesday I woke up to the good news that Kayleigh was accepted to her first choice school, not that I was worried as we live very local to it.
And later I met up with another old friend Roxy, and her son Alfie! Its been a couple of years since we last met up and I was worried it would be awkward but it wasn’t. We met at PlayFarm and the kids had a blast, Peyton slept a lot of it so we got to catch up. Then we went for lunch at Harvester and took advantage of their good deals. Surprisingly Kayleigh ate quite well, but Peyton didn’t.
Later that day we met up with my friend (and Peyton’s godmother) Sophia, she came back to ours and we chilled out in the garden! As it was a beautiful day.
I was glad that day was filled up as Jai was working from 6am until 8pm! he’s been working a lot of shifts this week and because its Easter weekend and bank holidays a lot of his staff aren’t working this weekend so he has to which sucks but will be good money for us.
So this weekend should have been the date of my youngest daughter Peyton’s first birthday party. However due to our eldest daughter Kayleigh coming down with chickenpox on wednesday evening we had to postpone the party. I then attempted to rearrange the party for 26th April but most people couldn’t make it so then had to change it to 3rd May (a whole month after Peyton’s birthday- but i suppose it does give a chance for her to get and be done with chickenpox herself!). On the upside My husband Jai used the reorganisation of the party to try to reconnect with old friend and it seemed to work as well, we’ll see 🙂
However we were told that my parents would not be attending the new party due to it being bank holiday weekend and they were planning to go away, which made me mad as they have a caravan on a seasonal pitch at a campsite meaning they can come and go as they please from Easter though to October! They also haven’t seen Peyton for her birthday yet due to Kayleigh having chickenpox and they’re worried she may get it before her operation on friday! (She’s already had it and never got it when me and my brother were young!) – I give up with them!
We did however take our children to Sealife Birmingham on Friday to celebrate Peyton’s birthday the day before. They both loved it there and we were given a free return pass too!
Then on Saturday we had a few people round on what would have been party day to spend some time with the birthday girl. The girla had a good time despite so few being around. Hopefully the rearranged party works out for us 🙂
Omg so it’s finally happened! My littlest girl turned 1 today!! So bittersweet, i love watching her grow and learn but miss her being a little baby!
On other news Chicken Pox has infected my oldest girl! She had to miss her last day of playgroup before the Easter holidays, and the easter service. Also we’ve had to postpone Peyton’s party due to it and change our trip to SeaLife tomorrow until after the holidays.
