This week has flown by so fast I have had to look through my phone pictures to see and remember what on earth we have done! I am currently sat with a cup of coffee, a bounty bar as my Slimming World syns and the washing machine is spinning loudly to Rudimental playing in the kitchen. I am so rock and roll with the domestic life and drum and bass on a Friday night!
As this week has flown by it’s more of a 10 days at a glance than a week (am I stretching the rules slightly on this one? perhaps! but it’s allowed on occasions I’m sure!)
We have also made a great start on decluttering the house and a tip run later we are back to normality in our back bedroom and it no longer resembles a junk room…hurrah!
What happened in the week?
We went to West Wittering on the weekend and had a great time. I just love West Wittering, the queues between 11am-4pm are pretty horrendous so we generally get there super early and leave around the time the car park closes which is usually as the sun is setting
J and I went to a country park which I haven’t been to for quite some time and had a lovely time, although she didn’t really want to walk, which was unusual so we trekked back to the car and she sat in the buggy for a chunk of it, getting out to see the items on our adventure walk. The rain arrived as we were settling for a picnic at the end so I sprinted back to the car with her and we had what i can only describe as one of her favourite past-times – a car picnic!
J’s drawing is really getting good. I don’t know if it’s advanced or the right time but it’s amazed me every time she has done something new with a pencil or drawing device. she copied me drawing balloons on the weekend and again with one of our friends who had drawn a smiley face. A very proud mummy moment!
The bedtime fairy is still continuing and was starting to cost a small fortune at the pound shop so a friend recommended “Crafty Crocodiles” and shortly after the order was placed a box full of what can only be described as a revisit to my childhood arrived. I won’t lie, i got a little bit excited!
Anything else worth mentioning?
Our lovely friends from York came down south for a holiday and we saw them a couple of times and spent a day with them trampolining and swimming in Guildford. We normally only see them once a year so it’s an absolute delight seeing them more than that, and this year will have been 3 times. We always say it, but every time J sees them she always grows up a bit more
I took one of my favourite photos of J who was in the bath on a Wednesday morning just chilling out and having fun. I may be her mum and I may be a bit biased, but I will honestly say I think she looks simply stunning in this picture
The souths motorways were also pretty horrific one of the days I needed to get to physio. It was jammed right up and I arrived 30 minutes late and had been sat travelling for 1 hour and 45 minutes for what should have been a 20-30 minute journey. J found it highly interesting and was fast asleep! I am also sick to the back teeth of sitting in traffic and have decided that I am going to start cycling to work. It will also help with fitness and weight loss!
My favourite moment of the week was?
Watching the hubster and friends spend hours down the beach building a sandcastle helter-skelter and getting very excited at the boules balls going down them
A bunch of thirty-somethings building sandcastles clearly has to feature in my favourites!
