Being 4 and more of life's big adventures

"I don't need my mutties (muslin comfort blanket) any more, I'm four and I'm a grown-up". So ends the preschool era and here come some huge changes.
One week my baby was blowing four candles out and dressing up as batman (in Spanish 40 degree heat).

The next week he was dressed up as a school boy. We don't get much about school out of him other than, his favourite game is Poo Flood - the rules are quite simple someone shouts 'watch out there's a poo flood behind you' then you run away. 
Being a grown-up has meant lots more commitments, big boy gymnastics (mum can now relax with a cuppa and just watch), swimming lessons (jumped straight in despite not being about to swim giving the teacher a bit of a scare), playing at friends houses alone - it's hard work being big.  My happy, smiley, sunshine boy is making a big impact on the whole world.

PS - some strange and funny Euanisms:
Changing into a super hero every morning (including Spiderman, Freezer Batman, A zombie called Puncher or an alternative zombie called Rolly) - the hero of the hour is announced and that is the only name answered to.
Fish finger sandwiches are food of the moment.
Pretends to cry every morning to hold the teacher's hand to go into school

SkyWatch Friday - holding on to the sun

Well, we're firmly back into the school, work, live for the weekend routine in ever shorter days. I've got a bad case of post holiday blues and feel in need to feel the sun for a little longer.  Here's some warming photos from the Spain:

Most days ended with a drink on the beach - not sure what the locals called it but we knew it as Mojito Bay.

The walk back up Heart Attack Hill was a killer.

But the view of the sunsets from the top was worth it

Feral kids saying goodbye to the sun

 Not strictly a SkyWatch but feel the heat of the sun.

I see from my cousin Sarah at catchingthemagic that the Southern hemisphere is budding and enjoying spring, so hop over to SkyWatch Friday to see some actual real life (not just remembered) sun.

SkyWatch Friday - Distracting relaxing skies

This was my view for lots of the last two weeks.

Still have piles and piles of washing to do in my new washing machine (old one popped it's clogs the day before going away!), so I'll have to a very quick flight around the world at SkyWatch Friday to hold onto my holiday spirit for just a little bit longer!
