Anyway I do love my children very much they cause me much delight! they are both so different and funny! Pants is very outgoing, very noisy, cheeky but defiantly not boring! very clever not sure where he got that from! its sad when a 6 year old has to show you how to do things on a ipod! and Ami just as sweet shes just starting to develop a personality she already seems very chilled out very much like her dad!
my day goes like this wake up to either husbands alarm/ Ami crying/ pants shoving ipod in my face asking me to download him a game! i then get Ami feed her whilst trying to get my husband to wake up so i don't have to quickly make the packed lunches or the forcing pants to get dressed bribeing him with nuttella on toast as a reward for getting dressed! by this time Ami is bored of staying in bed! wants to explore elsewhere so of we go into our lounge! i then pick up the carnage from pants! and my husband takes pants to school! most days something is forgotten book bag/lunch box/ scooter!
this is all before 9am
what joy but then i wouldnt change it! ive been a mum since i was a teenager its all ive known i never had those care free years of being an adult, spending all day in bed! not having to sort childcare out if i want to do anything on my own! that's the dream! one day when the kids are adults i shall have my time then! i plan to do alot of missionary work maybe we will take the kids with us! i dont know what the future holds but i do know god has some awesome plans for us! so if were still blogging i hope you enjoy the ride!
I would Love to hear from you please leave a comment!

So its been six months since Amelie arrived and became a mum of two, its funny after your fisrt baby life changes so much! i was young when i had Aston so i had to grow up very quickly! but with Amelie life has just got busier! we said before she was born that we would try and live life the same as before and just because we had two children didn't mean we would have to stay at home and not get involved with anything! along came Amelie a week late! the midwife had been round the day before but said she couldnt do a sweep as had to be 7 days late! i was devastated i had had enough of being pregnant and as the weather was the only hot days of the year i was desperate not to be huge anymore. we were away orrinagnally serving at a community event in Sidcup called lark in the park!

Today we held a women collective speed coffee morning! the idea is similar to speed dating but rather than look for a lover you were looking for a friend! one of the more important things involved was cake! i got there early and there was so much cake! we have some talented bakers in our church community although my baking was not required maybe my husband had told them about my previous failures in the baking department! these have involved burnt cake, hard biscuits you name it! i keep on blaming the oven!
we had about 30 women attend which was awesome! plenty of tea and cake! conversations were had! i also ate two yes two slices of chocolate cake! was nice to have a break from the kids and sit and talk with out fussing over Aston and Amelie! i am sure my husband enjoyed not having me over his shoulder whilst playing with the kids! he did say he stood on Amelie s hand but that's not too bad!
Anyway back to women collective, the tables looked awesome my friend who got married last year had loads of country chic accessories left from her wedding so we decorated the tables with these! all in all was a successful morning hopefully some new friendships made or even new support networks for some women! our next event is community action in our local area! exciting! Womens collective ministry is new to our church after my friend Chelser saw a missing gap and prayed into it and heard whispers from god! a year later in November 2012 we were having our first ever womens collective weekend away! its amazing to have a group dedicated to empowering and supporting the women of our church community!

kiddicare had a few but nothing I really fancied! So i looked on mothercare where they had a stroller with £10 off the Mothercare Nanu Stroller - Lollipop Blush. I looked on Voucher code to see if i could get a further discount, and to my surprise there was a another £10 of if you spend £50 if you download the iphone app, so all in all got £20 of the original price! i do love a bargain me! with the £20 i brought a pink cosytoes!
It came this morning easy to put together! don't usually go for pink but the husband loves pink! or anything girly for Ami he loves! We have used it a few times and have found that Ami has not liked it, maybe she enjoys parent facing Im not sure, we also found that she ends up slouched down in the pushchair. Also the cosytoes is more hastle than its worth so we havent used it! We carry on to use the pushchair as its alot lighter and handy to use when out and about. Pants enjoyed playing with the box he got in it and i stood him up he was stuck in there was very funny my husband then picked the box up and attempted to put it outside!
I love to save money where possible these children come with a huge price tag!

Anyway forty questions they are rather random such as... Who was your favourite teacher? what was the toy you allways wanted? What is your happiest moment? Those type of questions! So rather than type them out and print them out in a business card way I made them in long strips (I saw the idea on a wedding table and thought it was intresting) the tables are named after cottages not my idea but I made the names up. Although they look rather more like pub names! Took a long Time cutting and punching stars and laminating but enjoyed it all the same!
Today as-well Amelie started to bum shuffling not sure this is good! Im happy her just sitting not getting into mischief! Aston only has a limited time to keep lego our before Amelie eats it!

So of out we went bit later than arranged and we went to Hornby visitor center Good fun if you have children Aston played with trains and cars. Then Aston got to make and paint a plane which for a hyper six year old was to hard so poor mummy had to make the plane with Amelie on my lap! She was grabbing all the small pieces and glue but we got there minus a few Parts ! More of a dad and kid thing! Aston and his friends enjoyed it and it stopped him playing his iPod and watching tv for a while! Was a bargain at £2.50 including the make and paint plane! So after we decided to go into Margate to visit the cupcake cafe where they were doing cake decorating! After a lovely tea and cheese tostie we ventured in! Aston managed to eat plenty of marshmallows rather than put them on his cake! Saved the mess at home and was good fun! Not bad for £1! Only half way through half term going to euro Disney next week hurray!
