It’s been quite an eventful week. Last weekend was a fun-filled, but very busy one. We enjoyed an overnight stay at Chessington World of Adventures where we got to try out the new Gruffalo ride last Saturday. We were also lucky enough to have the opportunity to meet Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler and have a couple of books signed by them. It was an amazing experience and I’m still buzzing over it all a week on.
On Sunday, I braved a trip into central London by myself with Jessica and Sophie to attend the Surf’s Up 2 screening. It was the girls’ first cinema experience and they enjoyed it very much.
Hubby was away for the first half of the week working on an event so it’s certainly been an eventful week for him too.
My ticket for #BML17 has been booked this week, thanks to my lovely sponsors Fantastic Services – another event to look forward to.
The end of this week has sadly seen a shocking event though with the attack in Westminster. It’s left me wondering why there is so much hate in the world and why people feel the need to kill others. The world can be a dark and scary place sometimes and this week has been a reminder of that. I am thankful that my children are still young enough to be oblivious to such things; that they are protected in the innocent cocoon of childhood. Long may that last.
Things I have loved this week:
- Morning snuggles with both the girls in my bed – and having enough room to all be comfortable with hubby away (sorry hubby!)
- Sharing my reflections on what Mother’s Day means to me in a guest post for Action Medical Research.
- Sophie’s glee at getting to splash in puddles.
- The beautiful double rainbow I spotted from my dining room window.
- The keyring and card that Sophie made at preschool for Mother’s Day.
- Sophie’s drawings of us all. I especially love this one of her (the green figure) holding on to Jessica’s hand with me standing next to Jessica.
