Prices Reducded At Vue Cinema

We always tend to find it hard to think of days out and things to do with the children during the cold winter days.

For the last few days Alana had been asking us if we can take them to the cinema, as much as I liked the idea. I wasn't too keen on the other hand, because the last time we took them it cost £30 alone for 2 adults and 2 child tickets. The total soon added up when they kids wanted sweets and a drink. Well over £50 we paid for a trip to the cinema.

But, Friday night when me and Brandon were sat thinking of where to take them the following day. All that kept popping into our heads was the cinema, purely because Alana had been asking if we could take them again.

Then I remembered that Vue cinema do a kids weekend morning called 'mini mornings', between 9-10am they show a certain film for only £2.50 per person. I had a look at their website to see which movie it was but sadly the only movie available to watch at present on 'mini mornings' was Trolls. Trolls is a movie that has only just come out but it's a movie both kids have already watched twice so we decided against the 'mini mornings' idea.

As I was searching for other movies, up flashed new price of £4.99 per person! That brought a smile across my face as it ment it wouldn't cost us as much as it did the previous visit. Brandon went on and booked 4 tickets to see the movie 'Sing' the following morning.

When we got up the following day, Brandon told the girls where we were going and their little faces lit up as they happily got dressed chatting away to eachother about going to the cinema.

We dropped Imogen off at Nanny's (Brandon's mam) because she is too young to still through a movie, especially in the cinema.

The movie was good, just took quite sometime to start which made Alana a little restless and bored. The only other downfall with Vue cinema in Hartlepool is, they have no heating what so ever. The place was freezing, we all kept our coats on throughout the movie.

Mummy and 3 Daughter's

It's not often I get a photo of me and my 3 children. This one I actually really like, even though we're all walking away from the camera!

Brandon took this lovely photo of us on our winters walk through wynyard woodland park.

Pregnancy Announcement Baby Number 4

I've been very very quite the last few weeks, as we've been adjusting to our surprise shock of being pregnant with baby number 4.

It came as a total shock to us because I was on the mini pill and had recently been for smear test as I was due in for the coil, as soon as my period arrived.....BUT, that period I was waiting for never arrived. 

Being 3 days late I asked Brandon if he would pop to our local Co-op and pick me up a cheap pregnancy test. From the minute he closed the front door, I was sat time watching hoping that he would be back the next minute. I just wanted to wee on that magical stick to find out the outcome a.s.a.p.

As soon as I'd finished I nervously held the stick in my hand, whilst I stared and stared at the stick egging it to hurry up and show the result. Then, slowly one line appeared and then two. "OH NO" I said to myself as I trembled opening the bathroom door. 
Brandon came over to me and knew right away by the expression on my face. I held the stick out and he replied "ok we will talk later when the children are in bed".

We both said we would love one more child but not until a few years down the line. I wanted to go back out into the working world, not stay at home looking at the same walls everyday with no adult conversation. 

It took us a few weeks for the pregnancy to sink in, to realise that we've alot of adapting to do. Bigger car, different home, more dirty laundry and not forgetting more stinky nappies!

A few weeks have passed since I seen those 2 lines on the magic stick. I've been for my 12 week scan, baby is healthy and measuring well. I was also informed that I have another cyst on my right ovary, it was then 6cm. I was informed that they are going to keep an eye on it and will let me know the next step of action after my 20 week scan, that's if the cyst has grown bigger.

Alesha and Alana are both over the moon that there is going to be a new addition to our growing family. Imogen is too young to understand, with only being 1 year old. 
Both Alesha and Alana are hoping that I am carrying a baby boy. I'll find out the gender when I go for my 20 week scan, which is the end of February.

In the meantime, I've got a consultant appointment to attend in regards to my heart as I have a loop recorder implanted. I'm keeping my fingers and toes crossed that I can have another natural birth.

I will leave you all with my latest scan photo (which was at my 12 week scan). I'm no good with the nub theory so I haven't a clue whether it's a boy or a girl.
