Happy Friday, it feels like this has been a long week and I am more than ready for a couple of days off. The scaffolding for the extension has gone up this week to build the walls for the first floor. It’s really exciting to see but I am looking forward to it being finished and not living on a building site.
Without further ado here’s the highlights of the past week.
After seeing so many people raving about this book I treated myself to a little Mothers Day present and bought Eleanor Oliphant. I read a few pages on Sunday but have yet to pick it back up and this week has been quite busy. I’m hoping to get stuck into it over the weekend.
One of the things I love now that O is getting older is watching with him the films I watched growing up. He loved Karate Kid over Christmas and last Saturday we ordered The Goonies off Amazon Prime and snuggled on the couch together to watch it. It’s been years since I’ve seen it all the way through and there were so many parts I’d forgotten. Such a fab family film.
G seems to have developed a really wicked chuckle which has had us all giggling this week. He is such a cheeky little boy and his laugh is just another signal he’s going to be keeping us on our toes.
Maybe not quite a decision that has been just this week but one that I did write about on Monday, you can read about it here if you’re interested. I made the decision to keep going with my blog. For so long I have left it very unloved and I had thought I was ready for walking away from it. But G has started going to sleep easier at night and I’m starting to find some time again in the evenings and I guess I’m just not ready to leave it, not yet anyway.
I’m cheating this week and rather than I wore, I’m going with I am going to wear as with payday this week I have treated myself to a few new things from Topshop. I have been stuck in a skinny jean rut for the past few weeks and I’m not even that big a jeans fan, but they are so practical when running around after the boys.
I love this skirt but I am slightly worried it could be a bit too long on me but I’ll have to wait and see when it arrives.
In the hope of warmer weather I opted for this t-shirt. We got engaged in Venice so the place will always be special to us
And I just couldn’t resist these super cute PJ’s, forever a Friends fan!
It feels at the moment that the house is always full of people, the builders are here most days (sometimes weekends too) and it has started to feel like a treat when we have the house to ourselves during the day. In just over a couple of weeks we will have to move out when they knock through to the main part of the house and I will miss our home and our family routine so much. We keep telling ourselves it will be worth it in the long run, and it will be, but for now I’m making the most of the rare lazy day we get at home.
