50 Shades of Grey has finally hit cinemas.
All of the women that I work with have been giggling in the staffroom whilst trying to organise various trips to see it, all of them are going with their friends, none of them with husbands!
This week I’ve found myself later home from work than normal. Not in any way working late just later than normal. My slightly longer days haven’t been much fun for me but have made a big difference to my daughter.
Yesterday she got upset several times during the day asking for me. Today she had her weekly day at Playgroup and for the first time ever she became upset there too.
During the past week Moo has started talking about Christmas. We don’t know where she’s got the information from (she’s only 2 so we presume she can’t remember from last year) but it’s now very much on her mind.
“Father Christmas down chimney bring presents”, “give him beer, reindeer eat carrots” and “Father Christmas says Ho, Ho, Ho.” are just some of the gems she comes out with.

Reading a story with your little ones before bed is the best thing EVER!!! Guess how much I love you by Sam McBratney is the perfect story to share before bed.
Guess how much I love you tells the story of a young hare and his Dad preparing to go to bed. As they settle down for the day just like many parents and children they exchange comments of loving one another.
Moo is showing her first signs of wanted to verbally go head to head with us in an argument.
Here she is ready for her fireworks yesterday.
Most days now at some point she will, rather aggressively announce “I love YOU!”
To which of course we echo her with an “I love you.”
This appears to stir her as she unleashes a louder “I love YOU!”
This can continue can continue for quite some time before one of us buckles, if only our “arguments” could remain like this forever!
It’s a soggy and dark day outside so we’ve built ourselves a quick for in the lounge this morning using EZ-fort.
EZ-fort is an easy to assemble and very versatile den building kit made up of poles and balls that allow the poles to connect together.
