It’s been quite an eventful week on the whole with hubby being back home again, various trips out and about, a couple of trips down to see my mum and help her celebrate her 75th birthday, my sister Maxine staying with us for a few days and then Jessica being poorly at the end of this week. A busy, tiring week and I’m thankful that hubby has been around for most of it and that Jessica seems to have perked up a little today.
Out and About:
I enjoyed catching up with one of my friends from my university days and her little girl – our three girlies had a wonderful time in the soft play area whilst we enjoyed the chance to have a catch up over a cup of tea and some cake.
As it was such a beautiful day, we spent the afternoon exploring one of the parks in the area and Jessica and Sophie looked so adorable holding hands and exploring together. Sadly both my phone and camera went flat and I wasn’t able to capture the moment although I did get another chance a few days later when we went for a walk at Denham Country Park.
I had a lovely time catching up with my family at my mum’s birthday meal – seeing my siblings and lots of my nieces and nephews. It was a wonderful evening and I was amazed by how well Jessica and Sophie coped with it being such a late night for them. Jessica was falling asleep at the table but was still determined that she was going to finish her slice of birthday cake!
Fun at home:
With Jessica being poorly towards the end of this week we have had lots of time snuggling on the sofa together and watching endless repeats of the Twirlywoos and Bing Bunny which are her current TV obsessions. We also enjoyed sitting and making cards together at the beginning of the week.
I had a lovely moment with Sophie one bedtime this week when she grabbed both my hands and started singing and guiding me through the actions of her favourite songs. ‘Row, Row Your Boat’ was definitely one of them and I think she was also trying to do ‘Wind the Bobbin Up’ and ‘Head, Shoulders, Knees and Toes’ too!
Time for me:
My lovely sister took Jessica out to the park one afternoon while Sophie was napping so that I could have an afternoon nap too.
On the blog:
I’ve been enjoying reflecting on my 40acts challenges. Last Saturday’s challenge was to switch off from social media for 24 hours which I managed to do. I found it quite liberating to have my phone switched off and will be trying to have some downtime more regularly (although perhaps not a full 24 hours).
My happiest moment:
Spending time with my family and helping my mum celebrate her birthday.
Next week I would like to:
Do some planning for our holiday later this month.
