Blog Every Day in August: A Wonderful Day

I am taking part in Yummy Mummy in Training’s Blog Every Day in August challenge.
Day 25 is: A wonderful day.

S and I have been on two weeks’ holiday from work/nursery. I was very keen to make sure that we did lots of fun stuff, so that she wasn’t just spending two weeks waiting for nursery to start again. But on the other hand, I don’t have much (or any) money.

Guess what, turns out you don’t need money to have fun.

This is what we did on our first day:

Single Mother Ahoy wonderful day 1
Had a late, lazy morning cuddling with Tigger and playing with toys in the bedroom
Single Mother Ahoy wonderful day 2
Started and won a fight against the beanbag
Single Mother Ahoy wonderful day 3
Sat by the front door and demanded to be allowed out to play
Single Mother Ahoy wonderful day 4
Had a super long nap, then woke up and read a book. Upside down.
Single Mother Ahoy wonderful day 5
Did some messy play with cake dough, which you can read about over on Edspire
Single Mother Ahoy wonderful day 6
Played with crazy soap (we were not amused)
Single Mother Ahoy wonderful day 7
Played with the flannels being used to clean up the cake dough (we were more amused by this)
Single Mother Ahoy wonderful day 8
Played catch with the sensory ball and two of S’s aunties
Single Mother Ahoy wonderful day 9
Multi-tasked with the drum and teething
Single Mother Ahoy wonderful day 10
Went for a walk with the trike, and hugely pregnant Auntie Smooch, who tried not to have her photo taken
Single Mother Ahoy wonderful day 11
Fed the ducks
Single Mother Ahoy wonderful day 12
Discovered the joy of playing drums in the bath.
I think the total cost of our day was… £1 for the cake mix for cake dough, and 35p for some bread for the ducks. We had a wonderful day, and it set the tone for the rest of our fortnight!
