May has been a month of ups and downs. Sadly, just after the death of Buttercup, we also lost Rosie. She clung onto life for another week after her vet visit, but the antibiotics and TLC sadly were not enough and we lost her. She enjoyed a sun bathe on her last couple of days of life, after 19 months of freedom with us, enjoying her retirement.
We also had a scare with Pru, who we took to the vets with similar symptoms. It seems it may have just been a broken egg though, and she has perked up and rejoined her sisters after a week of TLC and Nutri-drops.
So far in May we have also had visits from Nanny and Grandad, two fun days ice skating with the lovely Jones-Thomas crew, two gymnastics classes and a couple of dentist trips.
We had a fun day at Space Hoppas soft play with the lovely Elaine, Jacob, Jess, Bex and Violet
A fantastic day at Lower Drayton Farm with lots of other home educators. We got to tour the farm on a tractor ride, explore the rapeseed fields, feed the llamas, feed the lambs, stroke a rabbit, guinea pig and duckling, play with all our friends and generally have a fun day on the farm, despite the rain.
We had fun at Friday Club, including a drumming workshop.
Amber and I went to Izzi’s prebaby afternoon tea party.
We spent a fun day at Boscobel House and the Royal Oak.
We had a trip to Mere Green library for lots of new books, before meeting Granny and Grandpa for lunch at Taybarns.
We had fun swimming, with Alfie and Holly further perfecting their underwater swimming skills.
We had a lovely day at the Wolseley Centre for Flynn, Calen and Niamh’s birthday celebration.
We had a breakfast buffet at Taybarns with lovely friends, then a day exploring Coombe Abbey country park.
We met Charlotte and baby Katie Rose for lunch.
We built working recycled robots
Made a moon dough zoo
Read lots of books
Did lots of cooking
Hatched a dinosaur
Built the Sagrada Familia in Nanoblocks
And generally had lots and lots of fun
