Lachlan was up early Monday morning making modifications to his beloved farm truck, he has had a recent growth spurt and struggles to scoot along on the truck now.
With beanies on it is always smiles on the way to pick up Eloise from nursery. Lachlan was happily singing all the way there.
Not wanting to be shown up by her Dad, Eloise had been workin’ hard in the woodwork department at nursery making another two new robots. Lachlan is always interested to greet the new members of the family at the dinner table.
After some spiritual dancing it was time for books and bed. The Lego book is a family favourite, Eloise knows it so well she reads it to Lachlan each night.
Tuesday was a freezing foggy start. Eloise was concerned that we may get lost on the way to nursery in the morning and Dad’s ears almost snapped off on the way into the office.
Wednesday, it was no warmer but jobs needed completing before a super Sunday. Eloise rugged up and started pulling out the weeds which was “very tricky, very trick you know”.
Lachlan made sure to rug up in his new winter bear suit but was not too interested in weeding, just like Eloise, he is trying his hardest to cycle too.
With freezing hands we all deserved a treat after all that hard work, Lachlan managed to find his apron and helped out making some delicious British scones.
We had to rush to get Eloise to nursery in the afternoon by the time Lachlan had found his baby and pram to come along for the ride.
Thursday the temperature kept dropping as the United Kingdom braces for Storm Babet. It was a quiet one inside as we fired up the radiators for the first time this winter. Admittedly, Lachlan is giving the carpets a hard time, Super Mum reckons she plays cars with him for at least two hours a day.
Friday morning, Eloise was in a particularly cheeky mood. Hanging up signs around the house showing Dad which rooms he was not allowed in, poor Dad.
There was sadly no gymnastics due to October half-term school holidays. This was a big problem for us parents as we were left with lots of energetic kids with nowhere to go. Eloise absolutely loved her movie Daddy date last week so headed back to the cinemas with Super Mum and her pals to watch the new Trolls film.
Meanwhile, the boys went for a stroll, mainly trying to stay inside so we did not get blown away by Storm Babet which was in full strength. Lachlan was enjoying sprinting between cars.
After the movie, we all headed to TGI Fridays for a late lunch, all the kids were having a great time playing together and I think the adults were glad to get them out of the houses.
This morning we braved the stormy weather to get to football. Lachlan was doing well but we sat out for a while and had a talk after Lachlan pushed a kid over off the ball, it would have been a straight red.
In the afternoon the sky miraculously turned blue. It seemed that Storm Babet was wreaking havoc all around Glagsow. We made a dash to the park for some cycling practice. The last few cycling sessions Eloise tends to get to speed and then get concerned and ditch, completely letting go of the bike. We figured we should work on stopping properly before we can push her off on her way.
Eloise cheekily cycled to the playground and then that is where her lesson ended. She had a good crack at it today.
Meanwhile, Lachlan had woken up at home and was helping Super Mum prepare for the massive day tomorrow. We got home just in time for Eloise to help with the clean up.
On Saturday, “second red warning in a week as Storm Babet flooding continues” with “eight Scottish Professional Football League matches… being postponed”. Sadly “three people have died and a man remains missing in Aberdeenshire”.
