This week we were back to normal with school and nursery and work (boo hiss) with the exception of the weather. The last few days have been so wonderful here, I’ve even managed to get a little bit of colour from sitting out in the garden whilst Eli plays. Typically though it’s meant to rain tomorrow. James is working so I’d planned a day out for us; let’s hope the weather forecast turns out to be wrong.
Yesterday I managed to sit and flick through Good Housekeeping and Ideal Homes whilst Eli occupied himself in the paddling pool and the sandpit. Ideal Homes is one of my favourite magazines; I love seeing how other people have decorated their houses and the interior choices they make. I always think I should have been an estate agent in another life as I could happily look around other people’s houses all day long.
We watched Into The Woods for the first time yesterday. We had no idea what to expect and I’d heard mixed reviews but I quite enjoyed it; not sure I can say the same for James. My favourite song was ‘Agony’; I thought it was amusing and didn’t take itself too seriously.
It’s hats again this week! With the arrival of the good weather, I finally had a chance to wear my new floppy sun hat. I have wanted one of these hats for ages but never had the confidence to buy one and wear it. I don’t have the right kind of head for hats so always feel a little bit awkward. Okay, so it’s first outing was in my back garden where no-one could see me but I’m hopeful when we go to France I won’t feel like a complete noodle.
I heard this song for the first time this week whilst I was driving back from swimming. It’s one of those songs which I can’t really pinpoint why I like it so much…I just do.
We got creative this week and made some paper plate animals. It’s unusual for Eli to have the sticking power to do something, let it dry and then come back and finish it off so I was quite impressed that of the 5 animals we started, we managed to finish 3 of them.
I am super excited to have been gifted a ticket to BritMums. I ummed and ahhed about whether I was going to go or not but now I am and I can’t wait. It will be so nice to say hello to familiar faces and maybe meet some new people as well. I just need to get over my natural shyness in the next week and a bit! If you are going to be there please do come and say hello.
I hope you have all had an amazing week.
