With yesterday’s general election and the opening of nominations for the MAD awards, this week feels like it has been all about voting. As you read this, the votes in the general election will have been counted and the results will be being declared. The future of the NHS has been a key issue for me with this election and I hope that it will still be here by the time the next election comes around irrespective of whoever is in power.
I’ve voted for my favourite blogs in the MAD awards and have received my first nomination in the Preschool category which I was very chuffed about. If you enjoy reading my blog, I would love it if you could consider nominating me for a MAD award – you can vote for your favourite blogs here.
Out and About:
We had a lovely afternoon out as a family at Rickmansworth Aquadrome at the weekend and bumped into a couple of friends who we hadn’t seen since our university days – so lovely to catch up with them.
Sophie enjoyed a little time at toddler group while Jessica was at nursery although decided to take a nap partway through! I quite enjoyed sitting and chatting with the other mums whilst getting to have sleepy cuddles though.
Fun at home:
Hubby and I thought we’d have an attempt at clearing out the garden over the weekend as it is becoming increasingly overgrown. We managed to cut back some of it and have cleared the weeds around the roses although couldn’t cut the grass as the lawnmower wouldn’t start. Hopefully it will get fixed soon. Jessica had a wonderful time hunting for bugs underneath stones and both girls enjoyed getting the Little Tikes car out although it wasn’t easy to drive over the long grass.
Time for me:
I had a lovely evening going out for a meal friends on Saturday night while hubby stayed at home with the girls. Getting to meet my friends’ three month old baby girl was a highlight of the evening – I must be getting more sleep these days as having cuddles with her was making me feel quite broody!
On the blog:
Sunday marked the four year anniversary of the start of our journey as a heart family. Blogging has been one of the things that has really helped me through the last four years – I started blogging about Jessica’s journey whilst pregnant and this eventually led to me starting this blog just over a year ago.
My happiest moment:
Sophie giving me big kisses and laughing at me asking “and another one?” each time she gave me a kiss – it was the funniest thing ever as far as she was concerned and the combination of kisses and joyful laughter was just perfect.
Next week I would like to:
I’m looking forward to celebrating my birthday tomorrow with my twin sister and my family and then going out for a meal with hubby’s family on Sunday – let the birthday weekend commence!
