8/52: Our weekend back together

 Saturday

Saturday was the day I could travel up to Bristol to get my boys back. I know it was only a short week but I still found it very hard to be separated from them. They are my best friends and I always miss them so much when they are away. I travelled up on the 11:25 train from Plymouth and met them at Bristol without any delays. I received the biggest hugs from the children when we saw each other. We were just so happy but oh course I had to reassure sure the boys that it wouldn't be long till they could see their father again. It does break my heart that we live so far from him. On the way home we chatted about our weeks and caught up over a hot chocolate, it was lovely. When we finally arrived home, I told the children to run upstairs to their bedrooms. At first they thought they were in trouble but I had laid out a little surprise for them. I had spent the week they were away completely rearranging and cleaning their bedroom. I hung Lego posters, brought them new bedding, cleared a space where they could read and spoilt them with a little present. Alfie got the Lego set he had been desperate for and Tom had a talking Baymax from big hero 6 sat on his pillow. They were so excited. 








 Sunday


Our Sunday was ruined by the rain but it worked out OK and we actually had a pretty fun day. We had planned a long Sunday walk around the local national trust property but the rain was coming down hard. We decided to stay in our pyjamas and relax, ready for the children to go back to school on Monday. The day was mainly spent watching Iron man, superman and the Lego movie under blankets. The children also planted a few seeds for our little greenhouse and watered their sunflowers we are currently growing. Over all, a lovely relaxed day.

  4. Awww what a lovely thing to do for them as a surprise! I can't begin to imagine how hard it must be for you to be seperated from them every school holiday. I think you deserve a massive hug!

  6. Your boys have such cheeky smiles - they are lovely. I understand about the distance thing - I hate it when Grace goes to her dads. He is two hours away. Lovely photos :) #PointShoot

  13. These photos are great. It must be so difficult trying to sort contact living so far away. My husband has been offered many jobs further afield recently and it would just be impossible for him to take them without hugely affecting contact with the girls. It is so difficult when families are split but they do adjust. Must've been so hard for you to be without them all week. I love their happy faces. I love that they thought they were in trouble and had a lovely surprise instead. Great captures xxx #livingarrows
