We went for a lovely walk in the woods yesterday, then to an adventure playground. We didn't even take the pushchair for Isobel, she walked, which seemed weird. My baby is growing up!
We were actually in the woods on a mission looking for frogspawn. I wanted to take some home to hatch, then bring the froglets back to the pond. Could we find any anywhere? Nope! Also, can you believe that Ryan has never seen frogspawn? That boy has led a sheltered life. Well, he still hasn't seen any because there was none to be found anywhere.
Ryan has an appointment with a counselor tomorrow, at last. Also, we are going to have to take him to see his Mum soon as she is about to have a baby. We are all dreading it. He's much happier when she has no influence on his life. Even her phone calls upset him for days.
Taylor is at a craft activity day until 3pm today, then tomorrow evening Ryan is having a sleepover so it's all go here as always.
Another one of my best friends is about to move away, I'm gutted. Laura is going to either Greece or Spain to work in about a weeks time. It's her leaving party on Friday, so we are all going to that. My other best friend Becky just moved back to her hometown of Coventry after her divorce, so I'm still upset about her and now another friend is going.
Becky is in hospital right now in Coventry having her second son, and I should be there. I'm going up to stay with her on the 5th of May for the weekend, just to help her out with the mundane stuff like cooking and cleaning. It's hard being alone with a newborn, and I'm sure her 7 year old son Robin will be finding it tough to adjust to the new brother. I'm looking forward to seeing them all. I was in the bed next to Becky when I had Taylor, and we've been best friends ever since. I really miss her. :(
