Our Weekly Journal 16th Jan 2017


It was an awful week weatherise, rain and cold. Grandads's hip is getting worse and still no sign of an operation so we were confined to the house a bit more than usual. Bear and I did manage to get out a few times to the local park where he played football or collected sticks to throw from the bridge into the stream. The weather has been so mild that the stream is still clogged with greenery and the water flows slowly. Not the best Pooh Sticks Bridge at the moment. 

Bear knew it had been raining and we took a cloth to dry the slide but he was still disappointed to see the play equipment wet. "Wet, wet" he said "play, play" shaking his head looking sad. 

At the top of the slide are numbers and letters engraved into the sides. Bear likes to read these. He says the letters he knows, always starting with A but continuing with whatever he fancies.

Come on Nanny! Open the gate.

A, B, C.....
 Wednesday was back to Tots club, Bear made a paper snowman in anticipation of all the snow that was possibly coming our way. Sadly we had none, I so wanted to see his face watch the snow fall as Bear hasn't seen any yet. We still have a few months of winter left so there is lots of time for snow, I hope.

Investigating a necklace that he then gave to the little girl sat next to him..ahhh
Bear is resisting getting dressed in the mornings so quite often is only partially dressed. Twice now he has had no trousers on and under the guise of drawing on paper he has drawn on his legs. This means soaking in the bath and scrubbing them clean. Bear loves bathing but hates having his hair washed, we had tried everything, so it's just a matter of getting on with it as quickly as possible. He does love being wrapped up in a warm towel after though, and carried like a baby.

"Baby! Baby!" he shouts as he tries to climb out the bath with soap in his hair.

Oops, Bear has to scrub the pen marks off!

All cosy in a warm towel wrapped like a baby
On Thursday Mummy came home early as she was feeling poorly and Bear snuggled up on the sofa. He was watching you tube on my  the iPad when his eye lids got heavier, his head nodded and he lay down to sleep. Bear has never fallen asleep without motion or in his own bed. Aww so cute, mummy and I watched for ages.

Just too much ZZZZZ
On Friday it was Grandad's birthday so we went out for lunch and then on Sunday met up with the rest of the family for Sunday lunch. It was lovely and sunny but still very cold.

Collecting sticks on Sunday
 We had a great week even though we didn't go far or have snow. How was your week?
