You’re starting school today πŸ’™πŸŽ

You’re starting school today,
But weren’t you tiny just yesterday?
How can it be?
Didn’t you just turn three?
.
You’re starting school today,
Little forever I wish you’d stay,
It makes me both happy and sad,
But the little boy you’ve become, hes pretty rad.
.
You’re starting school today,
They grow up quick they say,
I’m so proud that I could burst,
I can’t wait to see you ace yet another ‘first’.
.
You’re starting school today,
My little Casey James you’ll stay,
Your going to be amazing, hilarious, the class clown,
Especially with your sassy frown.
.
You’re staying school today,
Have fun, makes friends and play,
Off on adventures on your own,
Running crazy, accident prone.
.
You’re starting school today,
It seems scary, you’ll be ok,
At school I know you will be great,
Now it’s your time to go through that gate.
.
You’re starting school today ο’™


Have the best time 🍎

You started school today πŸŽ

5 years ago I was working in my first ever reception class, eagerly awaiting your arrival, proud as punch when you finally arrived and I knew from then onwards that my life was going to be brighter, more fun and full of even more love.

Now you are ready to start your own reception journey and Im just as proud today, if not more, of the little boy you’ve become! Go show them what you’re made of Noahy, be the superstar that you are. Auntie Ro Ro cant wait to hear all about it XXXX

First day at School, Tuesday 3rd September 2019

Blogmas Day 13: The Shoebox appeal with Noah.

This year, as Noah is now 4 and old enough to get involved, I thought it would be nice to create our own shoebox present for the Shoebox appeal (Link above to the website if you’d like more info)

The appeal consists of sending your own christmas present to a child in need, in a different country.

You wrap up a shoebox, choose a gender/age range and fill the box up with age appropriate toiletries, toys, games, accessories, arts and crafts, writing tools and so on, and send it off to the appeal to be delivered to a child in need.

Noah really enjoyed picking out the items to go in the box for ‘the little boy’. He wanted to give it to a little boy who is the same age as him (4 years old).

We went into town and into Wilkinson’s (Wilko), to see what we could find to fill our box. Wilko has a variety of departments so I thought this would be a good place to go to get lots of different things for the box.

Wilkos is brilliant and their stuff is so reasonably priced that it is perfect for a project like this.

So, here’s what we chose together.

Toiletries

Kids Tooth brushKids Tooth paste Shark sponge Paw Patrol bath & shower gel

Toys

Mini RoadstersTrain Bubbles

Arts and crafts

Stickers Colouring pencils Chunky Crayons Plain sketch bookPencil case stationary set including pencils, rubbers etc Two different sized note books Paint set with brush Superhero stickers Pirate colouring/activity book.

Once we had got everything that we wanted we headed home. Sarah wrapped up the box for us and then we filled it up with the goodies we had bought.

Its lovely to think that a child will receive the items you chose, and that they will get something fun but also useful. We are very lucky to be in the position that we are in so its nice to give something back.

There will also be a video up on mine and my twin sisters youtube channel ‘Roseanne & Sarah’

Our shoebox for the appeal

So take a look at that too if you like πŸ™‚

Its a lovely Christmassy idea that gives something back.

Until next time,

Happy 1st birthday Casey James🎈

So on the 24th August my littlest nephew Casey turned one! SERIOUSLY!?! Where did that year go?! 

Now you may or may not know, that I was one of my twin sister’s birthing partners (with her husband Dan) so I actually watched little Casey come into this world. He’s changed so much in this first year and he has a real cheeky personality of his own. He’s funny, clumsy, cute and just a really smiley little sausage that can melt your heart with one look πŸ’™ 

On Sunday we had a family birthday party to celebrate and I thought I would share some snaps from the day.

We started off with opening the presents. Me & Tim had already given him a few on his actual birthday but saved his main present for the party, that being the activity table you can see in the photos. He seemed to really enjoy it 😊

After we had tucked into some party food & of course cake! (Which I made!) with a lovely rendition of Happy birthday, we decided to head out for a bit of fresh air. It was a really hot day.

We walked to a nearby pub to have a drink in the sunshine.

We found a lovely table outside and just chatted and enjoyed the lovely weather whilst catching up.

Infact we spent so long there we decided, why not stay a bit longer! & We all got something to eat. 

They do a delicious carvery at this pub with all the trimmings and it being a Sunday it would have been rude not to aye?! Lovely.

Casey seemed to have a fun day, lots of cuddles & smiles all round. So much fun intact that he needed a little nap inbetween 😴

Happy 1st Birthday Casey James πŸ’™ Lots of love Auntie Ro Ro & Uncle TT

Until next time,

Christmas eve part 1: Christmas arts & crafts

Only one day to go!! Im doing Christmas eve in two parts again like last year as theres been lots going on these last few days, super festive! 

How is it Christmas eve already, this is so mad, where has December gone?!? I’m going to miss all the festive build up, its one of the best bits of Christmas.

I found an awesome craft set from Wilko in town and had to get it to do with Noah, I knew he would enjoy it. 

In the set you get 12 ceramic Christmas themed ornaments, mini pots of paint, a paintbrush, 2 tubes of glitter and string to hang them up. What made this set even more amazing is that when I got it it was reduced to half price making it a bargin Β£2.50!! I couldn’t believe it. 

Full price it would have been Β£5 which is still really good as it’s great fun, brilliant value and these would make adorable homemade Christmas presents too.

Here’s me and Noah having a go at some crafty arty fun…

He really enjoyed himself which is the main thing 😊 & Auntie Ro Ro did too hehe.

Part 2 will be up later! Our annual Christmas partyπŸŽ‰
