I’m really enjoying writing my weekly list and looking back over the week that went by. The weeks seem to be passing by so very quickly and I cannot believe that J will soon be on half term. We have some special things planned and I’m glad we get to have some quality time together as a family unit. Here are the things I’ve loved this week:
This week has been a real whirlwind and while I’m glad it’s Friday and the weekend is nearly upon us I’m not quite sure where it went! It’s been a hard week with J, she is struggling with the full time school hours and is so tired. She asked if she also gets paid because she goes to school the same days I go to work which made me laugh but also made her realise just how full on life is now she’s a school girl. And so here is my list for this week:
Last week I did my first weekly list and it was a lovely way of reflecting on the week that was. Here’s this week’s:
Okay so I blink and the week just seems to disappear. We are now on the verge of August and over the last few days all the children have begun their summer holidays. The roads are free and clearer in the morning rush hour but the shops are definitely busier!
What happened in the week?
J asked to go pea picking, so we did, I love that she enjoys picking fresh fruit and vegetables, she’s such an outdoorsy, healthy girl. One of her favourite things to do after picking them is taking them into nursery on a Wednesday afternoon for her friends. She has also taken a real liking to opening half of the pods, emptying the peas into a bowl and then lifting the bowl into her mouth. I just want to squish her mouth every time it’s full of peas but manage to hold myself back (somehow!)
We visited Southampton Common for J to have a bike ride. We haven’t been there for years, not since Lexi was a puppy, so it was nice to venture back out and remember how flat it was and J really liked cycling on the paths. She’s getting more and more confident and it was such a nice sunny evening. It really makes a difference when the sun is shining
The hubster and I decided to try Slimming World friendly KFC one evening after reading the recipe here. It’s suddenly become a firm favourite with the hubster and he has asked for it most nights since!
Time really is passing by far too quickly and I am worried that I will forget something which has made my week amazing, or something small that J has said that just made me laugh, or made me smile, or even made me cry
When I stumbled upon a ‘my week at a glance’ link up I decided this would be a great idea to help record those very quick weeks. I like to use my blog to record the adventures we have, our ordinary days and moments together and to help keep an online record of what happens each week to be able to look back on it so here goes… Continue reading “My week at a glance #1 – 20/7/15”
