This week’s word of the week is:
With Sophie’s first birthday party planned for this weekend and hubby away all week, it’s been a busy week of planning, shopping and baking. I can hardly believe that my baby girl is about to turn one – how fast the last year has gone. I’m looking forward to seeing friends and family on Saturday and celebrating my little girl’s birthday with them.
Here’s a summary of how this week has been:
Out and About:
We had a lovely day out as a family last Sunday, heading into London to see the poppies at the Tower of London.
Fun at home:
Jessica helped me bake some fairy cakes earlier this week to take into Tiny Talk for Sophie’s birthday. She gets to have her own bowl of cake mix (and I then keep her cakes separate from the rest so she can lick the spoon as much as she likes!)
Time for me:
Having my first day out and about on my own last Saturday to go to Blog Camp was utterly blissful. Hubby and I also had our first evening out with no little ones and enjoyed a meal with friends whilst Grandma and Granddad looked after the girls. After more than a year of not having any significant ‘time out’ it was lovely to enjoy some adult company and not just be ‘mummy’ and ‘daddy’.
My happiest moment:
Seeing the girls enjoying the Halloween themed Tiny Talk toddler signing class this week – they looked so cute in their little cat costumes and Sophie had ‘Happy Birthday’ sung to her for the first time.
Next week I would like to:
Well last week I hoped to find time to make at least one of the cushions that I need to get finished before the beginning of December but I didn’t manage to do this (although I did get the letter shapes cut out) so going to try again with this one!
