Since making a conscious decision to take a step back from blogging I have felt quite liberated this week. As I haven’t been playing linky commenting catch up every night I’ve had the chance to sit down and read some of my favourites and also not felt guilty when I’ve switched all the technology off and just sat and watched the tele with my husband.
I’ve been reading (and marking) my pupils past papers. The exams officially started on Monday and panic is starting to kick in. I had a bit of an emotional moment marking all my Year 11 papers as all except 3 of them got their C in their weekly mock. A year ago it was only a handful with a C, and I felt so proud of them and how hard they have worked. I really hope they can get it in the real thing, they so deserve it.
I was a bit under the weather last weekend and on Sunday morning locked myself away in the bathroom with a hot bath and my Mollie Makes Social Media. I’ve only got as far as reading the Instagram section so far but it has given me a few new lovely accounts to follow.
On a Sunday night we have a little habit of watching a film once O has gone to bed to round off the weekend before heading to bed. Last week we watched Fruitvale Station which was the true story of the death of Oscar Grant by a policeman in America which resulted in riots across California. I really didn’t think it was going to be my thing but it was compelling viewing and even though you know what the end result is, it is still a shock when it happens. It’s on Netflix now and definitely worth a watch.
I know I’ve mentioned this before but I am still loving Ellie Gouldings Love Me Like You Do and can’t help but sing along when it comes on the radio.
Last weekend I had promised O we could build and decorate his new plane that we have been sent to review by Wicked Uncle. Little note to self, always read the instructions first as we got all set ready to go and then I realised that we needed to leave the glue to set for 12 hours before we could start decorating. O took the news quite well considering.
A slight cheat as we haven’t actually worn them yet but I treated myself and O to a few new holiday clothes. I’ve never considered a jumpsuit before but I love this on and can’t wait to wear it.
And how cute is O going to look in this.
O seems to be growing up so quickly at the moment and is fast becoming my best buddy. I am so proud to be his mum and am so blessed to have such a fantastic little boy.
