A combination of hubby having been away in Germany since Sunday morning, several unsettled nights and bedtime struggles, getting the monthly church magazine put together for printing plus some much-needed updates to the website and trying (and mostly failing) to keep on top of blogmin has left me feeling rather knackered this week. I’ve been mostly surviving on copious amounts of coffee, sneaky chocolate scoffed whilst hiding behind kitchen cupboard doors and not enough sleep! On the plus side, the sun has been shining and there have been a lot of fun moments this week to make up for the overwhelming to-do list!
Out and About:
We’ve been making the most of the lovely sunshine with a walk along the canal and afternoons exploring various local parks, including Langley Park which is very pretty at the moment with all the rhododendrons in full bloom.
Fun at home:
We’ve been doing a lot of crafts at home this week. Jessica had fun making herself a bracelet using a pipe-cleaner and foam beads and we have been doing a lot of sea-themed craft activities – making various fish and sea creatures. There’ll be more about our sea-themed crafts next week on the blog.
Time for me:
I had a little time for myself on Saturday before hubby went away and went clothes shopping for the first time in ages, treating myself to a few new things with my birthday gift cards.
On the blog:
I’m co-hosting “In Honour of Father’s Day 2015” – a linky for posts about dads – with Christina from Ladybug Home & Designs and Vicki from Ellibearbabi. It’s open throughout June and old and new posts are welcome, so if you’ve been writing about dads, please do come along and link up.
Next week will see the launch of my new guest post series “Parenting Pep-talk” which is all about sharing helpful tips and giving positive encouragement when it comes to parenting. I’ll be sharing a post from a different guest blogger every other Thursday and if you’d like to get involved, do feel free to email me at email@example.com
My happiest moment:
Watching the girls together just before bedtime – Jessica standing in the hallway, arms outstretched and waiting for cuddles while Sophie kept running away to the end of the hallway and then running back to give her sister a big hug. It was so lovely to hear them laughing and then watching them have a big cuddle.
Next week I would like to:
Spend some time with my mum and my family and get back on top of the blogmin! I’m looking forward to hubby being back home again on Monday.
