D's back!!!


The kids are back in school and I have finally got back my space here. HURRAH!!! It only took 2 weeks but it seemed longer to me. The wonderful warm weather made things more bearable because the kids could play in the backyard, instead of being confined to the house all day. Days were mostly spent in parks and running around to enjoy the freedom under the sun!

It's been so long that I don't actually know where to start. Let's see, okay, maybe some Easter photos. My princess and Little D had an Easter bonnet parade prior to the holidays. We don't celebrate Easter but we participated in the 'design your own bonnet/hat' for sheer fun with craft. Little D was the champion in his class !

Then, once the break started, we went to mamasarah's house for Amar's birthday bash.



Then, there were the regular visits to the City Farm (yeah, the goats were soooo friendly that I almost felt as if they were ours!). We went to numerous parks: Longford Park just down the road, Green Park & St. James Park in London. There were a few other local parks I have not listed here because I don't remember which ones they were and didn't bother snapping photos because I was mostly the porter holding the jacket, bottle, ball or bag - grrrr... We also walked along the canal that ran across the city.

LONGFORD PARK


We took two short trips southbound: to Oxford and London.

These were taken in Oxford:

To end the children's Easter break, last weekend we went to a picnic site down in Rugby to pitch up the 6-man-tent Mr.D managed to bargain for. That was where the kids chased after rabbits, fed Horsie (the horse) and Little D got sting by nettles - ooooh, very prickly indeed!

Welcome to our humble set-up!


This is Mr Horsie..


Hmmm.. I wonder who's suppose to put on a shirt here...??!!

All in all, the holiday was exciting and tiring. So, now for some serious work...

Ahh..welcome back!

Love the photos. Enjoyed seeing the kids flolicking in happiness. I love the goats. I have a soft spot for white goats like that. One of my nephews love animals and wanted goats too. My hubby said bila dia ada two goats name them, Curry and Kurma (in jest of course). We had a good laugh. The nephew did not..ha ha.

I found out another person has a cat called Curry!

The children looked like they've had a great time... kesian, mum's always the one holding on to their things and also the one taking pictures!

zakiah,
yelah, kita dulu cuti sekolah dok rumah je kan?? zaman berubah betul!

mamasarah,
nak kasi puas, kena la gi sendiri! ni sneak shows je. hehehe....

ruby,
ooooh, I like those names already: Curry and Kurma! My kids love animals and their dad has a soft sport for animals. So, he DID give in to some of the kids' 'requests' - we had ducks (Quick and Quack) in our small backyard back in PJ!! After 2 weeks, we managed to persuade them that the ducks would be better off in the Kelana Jaya lake with fresh fish to eat and space to move about. Phew, that was quite a struggle!

intan,
hehehe.. that's what we are here for, right? For mental and PHYSICAL support.

darling,
dah beli tiket lom?? I tunggu ni...
