Athena & Arlo – October 2018

These two are definitely feeling the ‘it’s almost the end of half term but not quite’ exhaustion. I am too, even though I had a five days away last week! It always amazes me how much kids seem to change when you don’t see them for a few days. I only had one phone call with them when I was away, as they tend to get more miffed I’m not about if they can speak to me but i’m not around, plus having a phone conversation with either of them that goes beyond

“How are you?”


“What have you been doing?”


long pause, possibly because they’ve wandered off and done something else leaving me talking to nobody!

Anyway, when I got back they were eating dinner and Arlo jumped up to give me a huge squeeze ‘but not too hard because you will pop’ and their voices had changed, they had so much to tell me and they were both at least a foot taller! Well, at least a few cm’s!

These photos were taken a couple of nights ago when new PJs from Granny arrived! I try not to use indoor photos for my Siblings or Me and Mine projects but these were too cute not to use, even though I took lots more of them on our day out yesterday!

    I never speak to my three on the phone when I’m away – though if I’m honest I don’t really speak to Dave when one of us is away either – we tend to just message each other.

    I love these photos, they look so cute together and of course new pyjamas is always fun. Even for me as an adult, I love nothing more than a new pair of PJs x

    Love those photos! Same here: you can tell it’s almost the end of term. My four still have a week after this week and it’s going to be a loooong one! #siblingsproject
