The Friday Focus – 20/03/15

This week has been one of coughs, colds, teething and broken nights leaving me feeling somewhat drained by the end of it.   Hubby has had a busy week on the event front so it’s been a bit of a solo parenting week which hasn’t helped but on the plus side we had a lovely family day together for Mother’s Day last weekend and have a busy family weekend planned for this week.

Out and About:

We went to Legoland with my friend Denise for the first day of the season and both girls enjoyed themselves very much although were quite exhausted by the end of the day having only just got over being poorly earlier that week.

Both Jessica and Sophie helped hand out the daffodils at the end of the church service on Mother’s Day and seeing both my girls holding bunches of flowers to give out made my heart melt.

We had a trip to the dentist during the week and Jessica was very good at sitting in the chair and letting the dentist look at her teeth whereas Sophie reacted as though she was undergoing torture! They both got a sticker afterwards though.

Fun at home:
It’s been another week of snuggles and watching a bit more CBeebies than usual with everyone being a little under the weather although we have also managed a little crafting time too with Jessica enjoying making Grandma a bouquet of paper flowers for Mother’s Day.

Time for me:
I got a couple of hours to sit and have a hot cup of tea whilst catching up on blogmin while Jessica was at preschool and Sophie was napping.

On the blog:

I was really chuffed to be told by a couple of other bloggers that they have nominated me in the BiBs awards – thank you very much! (and if you’re reading this and would like to do the same, you can do so here!)

My happiest moment:
Seeing the girls enjoying running about in the sunshine in Grandma’s garden.

Make an Easter bonnet with Jessica in readiness for her preschool Easter concert.

  1. Hope you are all feeling much better now. It looks like a lovely week despite bugs! I have to make an easter bonnet too this week! Should be fun x #wotw

  2. Ooh, I blogged Easter bonnet making yesterday, if that helps! It does sound like a draining week, I hope next week is brighter and more energised for you all x Thanks for sharing with #WotW

    1. Thanks Tracey – not much time for R&R over the weekend as was very hectic but this week is a little better!

  3. It sounds like you have had a great week (despite the bugs) but I can see why you would feel very drained. I hope next week is more relaxing for you x #WotW

  4. Oh gosh I’m not surprised you have felt so drained with everyone having felt so unwell, I hope you are all now feeling much better and we’ll rested! Oh how darling do your little girlies look handing out the flowers.xx

  5. Oh I hope the girls are getting better! The bugs seem to have hung around this year. You still seem to have packed lots into the week. I love to see the little ones giving flowers out too, it’s adorable isn’t it? I also love the paper home made ones, especially when they are very proud of their efforts. Good luck with the bonnet x

    1. Thank you Lisa – bonnet making all done and went well! Still waiting for the bugs to completely go though!

  6. Solo parenting is so tough isn’t it? Even if it’s only temporary it still takes it out of you… My husband is in the midst of a really busy time with his med school training and I’m finding it exhausting! Easter hols coming up soon fortunately… I think we both need a bit of a break! xx

  7. Hi Louise, the pictures of your little girls are adorable and the one where your daughter is handing out the daffodils is a heart melter for sure…So cute.

    I bet Lego Land was fun, it’s not somewhere I’ve ever been, but maybe one day.

    Hope you are all feeling better this week, spring is upon us and summer is just around the corner!

    1. Thanks Debbie – the coughs and colds are lingering but hopefully we’ll be done with them soon and knowing spring is here is always a good boost to the spirits 🙂

  8. Oh it’s so tough when they’re poorly isn’t it, especially if you’re going solo too.

    Sounds like you made the best of your week though and I hope everyone is on top form again soon.

    Thanks for joining in with our #HappyDaysLinky

  9. I always love your words at the beginning of each post- do you do them yourself? Anyway, despite a draining week looks like you had a plenty of happy moments! Hope this week has been a good one! #HappyDaysLinky xxx

    1. Thanks Katy – yes, I started doing them as I wanted the image of the word to also reflect the meaning as well, so glad you like them 🙂
