The Big Bed is on itâ€™s way!!!
Itâ€™s only going to be about 10 days later than weâ€™d originally anticipated – John Lewis are blaming the manufacturer and Iâ€™m sure the same would be true in reverse, but at least we know it is coming now and the bedding is all here and ready to go so, with a bit of luck and some self assembly, we should have the bed up and sleepable by bedtime next Monday (2nd July).

We have started the process of â€œThe Big Bed Moveâ€ this week â€“ we had been hoping to do this once Isabel’s new bed had arrived but Mollyâ€™s growth rate out did us and we had no choice but to de-squash the littlest Winchurst by transferring her into the cot! I had been slightly concerned that Isabel would object to her beloved sister mustering her way onto her turf but she doesnâ€™t seem to have cared a bit â€“ in fact, she gets rather excited at the prospect of bedtime in â€œthe tentâ€, which is what she is calling the travel cotâ€¦â€¦â€¦..the only slight hiccup is her new found excitement at being able to talk to Molly and therefore delaying sleepy time for either of them! I was particularly displeased yesterday morning when Isabel decided to arouse from her slumber at 6.45am (which is VERY early for her!) and proceeded to say â€œHello Molly!!â€ at the top of her voice until she got a response â€“ Iâ€™m pretty sure that Molly had still been asleep up to this point but clearly felt that if Isabel was awake then she should be too.â€¦â€¦â€¦the only plus side was that by 9am she was exhausted and promptly went back to sleep! Needless to say, she was extremely grumpy all day yesterday â€“ Isabel seems to be the only one who copes well with the early morning starts!

Life in the Winchurst household has been relatively quiet of late â€“ I am, of course, ignoring all the stomping, screeching and general yelling that both Girls have been busy practisingâ€¦â€¦..If we included those, there would never be a quiet moment to be had!
The Bank Holiday weekend found us stopping at home rather than venturing off on our travels â€“ Mummy had a mountain of washing (so nothing new there!) that was threatening to avalanche down on us all which she wanted to catch up on (and felt it would have been rude to arrive at someoneâ€™s house armed with our washing!) and, as it was a Bank Holiday, the weather was of course due to be rubbish! Aunty Catherine came to visit on the Monday and, after some lunch, we ventured to â€œKids 2 Dayâ€, an indoor play centre, so that Isabel could let off some steam â€“ once we arrived, we discovered that everyone else in Hampshire had had pretty much the same idea but there was no way we were going to be allowed to leaveâ€¦â€¦we had enough trouble getting her out of there once the hour and a halfâ€™s playtime was up!
