21st – 27th December WK 15
Tobi went to the holiday club at the nursery. He enjoys this as he gets to spend time with his friends.
We all went out to dinner in the evening and had a really good time. We went to a place called Red Hot Buffet and Bar in Leicester. It is an all you can restaurant with food from all over the world. There was something for all of us. The boys really enjoyed looking at what countries the food they were eating came from. There was also an all you can dessert bit with many tasty things. The boys really, really loved this part. To begin with both the boys and Caelum in particular didn’t really want to go but when we got home they couldn’t stop talking about it and Caelum kept saying how much he loved it. The next day Caelum was still on about how much he enjoyed it.
Due to having a really late because we went out for dinner the night before he slept in till about 11:00. He then went to the holiday club at the nursery.
Caelum woke up this morning then went back to bed and slept some more. This is quite unusual for him though. He has wrapped his Uncle Joe’s present and some others he got. He has also wrapped a couple up for his mum as well. He is getting good at this now and he likes to get the corners just right.
We then made a plum crumble as his mum got a load reduced. He chose to do crumble so we googled a recipe and he checked the cupboard to make sure we had everything. I taught him how to cut plums up and stone them properly and he did really well. He was very careful and really concentrated but he really enjoyed it as well. He weighed all the ingredients and I showed how to mix it so it ‘crumbled’ well. He preheated the oven and greased the tray all by himself. He timed it and worked that all out on his own. He then got it out and checked started to try and check it like you would a cake until I pointed out the difference in between cake and crumble. He was very responsible through it all but still managed to enjoy himself so I was very impressed. He was an absolute pleasure to cook with.
After making the crumble we played a game of top trumps Marvel style. I really enjoyed doing this with him and we had a great time discussing each character. It’s something we both like so we both really enjoyed this. Caelum all day though has going on about how much he liked going out the night before. We must do that again as both Tobi and Caelum and Bonnie really enjoyed it.
Overall it’s been a good day and Caelum has been a little star and so helpful and kind. He has made sure I am ok and has offered to make me food every so often or to get me things. Very cute.
