Margam Park

We made the most of a gorgeous autumn day by heading to Margam Park today.

The place had mostly closed down for the autumn (we were gutted that we didn't get to meet Noddy - he was there last week!) but it was very relaxing to walk around the deer park. We even saw some deer, which doesn't usually happen when we visit - Thomas and Hannah must have been being quiet!

I promise you, it is a deer, not just a smudge on the camera lens! Here's some more photos of our day out, anyway.

Going potty!

Not to be outdone in the 'growing up' stakes by Hannah starting school, Thomas did his first ever wee on the potty today! He did look very pleased with himself!

We can't wait to be able to walk around the house in our socks, without feeling the damp patches on the carpet!

First day at school

It was Hannah's first day at school today, and it was very exciting for everyone! Hannah certainly looks all grown up in her new school uniform, but she needs to pull her socks up!

Hannah had been looking forward to starting 'big school' all summer holidays, but then on Saturday night we had floods of tears. When we asked Hannah what was wrong, she explained that she was sad because she wanted to be able to do 'backward rolls' before she went to school, and she still couldn't do them!

Cue a lot of 'backward roll' practice on the bed for the rest of Saturday evening! Hannah managed to do them on her own in the end, so she finally felt that she was ready for the big step into school! We didn't tell her that Mummy and Daddy can't do backward rolls!

All of the worry was forgotten on the big day, though, as Hannah couldn't wait to go in through the big doors into the wonderful world of school life!
