Friday Focus 10/03/17 – There were four in the bed…

This week has left me feeling quite tired. We’re used to the girls climbing into our bed during the night and co-sleeping. On the whole, we usually sleep reasonably well but Jessica and Sophie have both been a little under the weather which has made them both fidget.

Fidget - this week's word of the week

Sophie had her preschool boosters this week and has mostly been fine but was a bit restless the night after.… Read more

I’ve taken part individually over previous years but this year is the first time that the girls will be joining me. We’ve got our 40acts wallchart up and I’m enjoying seeing how enthusiastic and excited Jessica and Sophie are about taking part in each day’s challenge (possibly helped by being able to add a sticker to the chart when they complete it!)

Lent - this week's word of the week

So far, we’ve put together our generosity kit (which includes chocolate, sweeties, some coins, post-it notes and plasters) and made the effort to tell a friend something that we really like about them.… Read more
