I started the year so much more organised than I finished the last one and I managed all of two months before I gave into disorganisation once more. March has been the month I tried to catch up again, mastered the to-do list and completed failed at the elusive work/life balance.
Generally it has been quite quiet with more quiet weekends close to home than anything else. The bloke had a birthday and we had a lovely Mother's Day seeing my Mum and Dad and my brother and his family - these photos were taken on Mother's Day in my parent's garden.
We are all ready for the two weeks off school which start this afternoon and whilst we have few few concrete plans we are looking forward to some spontaneity and family time.
Mama is loving getting her sandals back out, lighter evenings, eating creme eggs and brunch outside at the beach cafe.
Daddy is loving his new coffee machine (something that seems to come up far too often), Finn's crazy personality coming out more, cuddles with Cora whilst she still feels like a baby and a big night out with old friends
Dylan is loving doing Easter crafts at school, playing games on the X-box, choosing his own sweets at the newsagents for film night and playing Mummy, Daddy and baby zombies at school with his friends.
Archie is loving building 'battle bots' with his Lego Duplo, dodging lasers and crocodiles on the walk to preschool, not having to wear a coat everyday and his new bunk beds.
Finn is loving playing peekabo with Cora, being out the buggy walking more often, singing the Tiny Tim turtle song over and over and counting things.
Cora is loving having breakfast every day, practicing her pincer grip (mostly on my skin), playing with duplo and playing peekabo with Finn.
And finally, to sum up March here is what a real family photo look like - not a single person looking at the camera!
