Birthday Preparations & A Battered Mars Bar

Aurora’s birthday is coming up soon!

She’s going to be 2! I can’t believe it! I don’t know where the time has gone.

We headed out on the weekend to get some birthday presents for her. It’s best to be organised – soon rather than later, and especially when Faiths birthday is coming up 3 weeks after.

I can’t express how excited I was just to go birthday shopping for her. I love spoiling them on their birthdays!

Off we went to Llandudno and we actually had some sunshine this time too, which always puts us in a good mood.

We went to a few shops to get the essentials first such as nappies, wipes etc. Then took a trip to B&M to look for some toys. I can’t believe the bargains they had in there for FisherPrice’ toys too!

I came across a dancing musical dog that teaches letters, numbers and phrases. It also plays music that she can dance along to.

Aurora loves to dance, so it was looking good. I went to show it her just in case she didn’t like the noise or the movement, and in case it scared her – a few toys I’ve presented to her she has been unsure about, so because of this I was hesitant. Instead she smiled, took it off me and said “mine”.

At least she liked it. Hey, that’s one present bought!

As we were looking around we came across a interactive elephant which was on a clearance sale for £15.00. Not bad at all. It’s nice to also save money – you kind of have to when you have 4 children in your household.

We then headed over to Primark. It’s really great for bargain clothes, but there’s always a mass of people shopping in there. It’s one of the downsides to shopping in there, but I guess that’s what happens with a popular shop!

I just had too suck it up. We found some cute little clothes for Aurora – it was well worth going in there, especially with the prices of some of the t-shirts – £1.30 each – you can’t go wrong really.

So basically Aurora’s birthday is near enough sorted besides her birthday cake and party food. I’ve still got to find those first pair of boots but with just under a month left, I’m sure I will find them closer to the time!

Overall we had a pretty good weekend. It’s nice to be able to get out the house for a bit instead of being stuck in all the time like we were in Liverpool.

We went to get a Chinese takeaway for dinner from our favourite Chinese restaurant, and also bought a ‘Battered Mars Bar’ for pudding too. (If you haven’t tried one yet, you’re so missing out!)

Now it’s back to reality and the children are back at school. There isn’t enough time in the day to get everything done so I’m going to be a very busy mama after picking up my monkey’s.

The good news though is that i’ve managed to book that ‘Boogie Bounce’ class for tomorrow. I’m determined to get my identity back piece-by-piece, and the bonus is that I get to see one of my friends who I haven’t seen for 6 months.

I’m really excited for it, but just not looking forward to the aches and pains afterwards.
