Hospitals, Brits and Comfy Pants #LittleLoves

It’s been a very strange week here, there hasn’t been too much normality at all.  On Wednesday I had to go to hospital for a very minor op, nothing serious but I was really worried as I didn’t know what to expect.  It was fine, the hospital staff were amazing and made me feel so at ease and the sedative drugs were great so I felt a bit drunk and then just fell straight to sleep, and for a few seconds when I woke up I thought I was back at home when I woke up.  It went much better than expected and we ended the week with some very good news.

In what has been a roller coaster week these have been my highlights:

I knew I was going to be waiting around the hospital for a while on Wednesday so I took a couple of magazine with me to read, and reminded myself of why I rarely read magazines anymore. It made me realise how much more I prefer reading blogs. I don’t care what’s going on with the Kardashians, I’d rather keep up to date with my favourite blogs. Saying that though I am really behind with my blog reading and commenting as I’ve been a bit wiped out since Wednesday. I do now have a week off work to recuperate so planning a commenting marathon to catch up.

I can’t not not mention the Brits here, can I? I think everyone is well aware of the Madonna fall, poor Madge, she didn’t look happy did she?
Whilst we’re mentioning the Brits, what on earth was going on with Kanye West’s (I use the word reluctantly) performance. I know I’m in my mid-30’s and no longer down with the kids but that was shocking, and not in a good way!

This probably isn’t something that I should be loving but it did make me giggle on Wednesday. I was sat with O on the couch and we were playing a game on the iPad when suddenly he said “Oh, bugger!” He’d been at my mums all day and I’m pretty sure that’s where he’s picked it up but we did have to have words about not using that word and luckily he hasn’t said it again. Kids listen and pick up everything!

Okay, I’m struggling with this one, I’m clutching at straws. This week I made some money eBaying some of O’s old clothes. Actually, they’re not old (BNWT) but he has outgrown them and we are trying to do a bit of decluttering in time for the Spring.

I did get to wear a beautiful hospital gown and hairnet on Wednesday but have since treated myself to a pair of new PJ bottoms from Tesco. They are without doubt the comfiest pants ever, made from the softest cotton. My only slight niggle is that Tesco sizes are either 8-10 or 12-14, I’m a 10-12! I’ve sized up because I like my PJ’s to be loose, but they are bit on the big side.


And Lastly…
He doesn’t get much of a mention on here but this week I am very grateful for my husband. He has been my rock!

    Oh dear, hope you’re feeling better lovely and that you have a nice relaxing weekend ahead. I’m completely with you on the Kanye West performance thing at the Brits. Not sure what it was all about but not entertaining at all 🙁 Great pj bottoms – can’t beat a new pair of jammies 🙂 xx

    Hope you’re OK lovely Jo, am thinking of you! I remember Eva standing at our front door looking out at the rain when she was about two, when all of a sudden she piped up ‘For F**ks Sake’ I actually nearly died!! (and then had a stern conversation with her daddy!) 🙂 Have a lovely weekend pet, and feel better! Xx

    It’s always tricky when a child swears, so hard to tell them off for something most of us do isn’t it.

    I hope you are feeling better and get good use out of those pyjamas over the next week. Kids are little rascals aren’t they! Lewis has started saying ‘What the…’. It stops there, but it’s the attitude and everything that goes with it that shows me my little boy is not so little. He’s picked it up from school, but I don’t know who from exactly! Have a good one Jo! Xx

    That quote made me ever so teary.. Lovely! Gosh I hope everything is ok? Rest up and recover! I had a moment like that with H the other day.. Bit worse than bugger mind 😉 but they are so innocent and have no clue what-so-ever! I did give him a huge telling off and like Emma was straight on the phone to daddy! Thinking of you xx

    I’m glad you are recovering well from the op. They should 6-8 for petite people, 10-12 and then 14-16, like everyone else. It’s rather annoying. I love the poster about love. I’ve emailed it to The Bloke :o)

    Hope you are on the mend quickly from your opinion. New pyjamas always help to make you feel better I think. I’m dreading when the toddler drops his first swear word….it will be his dad’s fault!!

    Glad your op went well – it doesn’t matter how minor it was, I’m sure it’s still worrying!! I had to laugh at O saying “oh bugger” we have just been saying how we really need to watch what we are saying around Amelia now, as she picks up on everything! I need to YouTube this epic failure by Madonna that ye are all on about! Hope ye have a great week xxx

    I hope you get a good rest this week to recover from you op. I’m having one on Wednesday and will be resting too! PJs and comfy jogger all the way 🙂
    I had to laugh at the cursing. I have to keep my mouth shut in the car because F repeats everything I shout to the people who cut us up. It’s a good job I don’t drive myself or else she would be swearing like a navvy!
    Have a restful week xx #littleloves

    I hope you’ve recovered from your operation well and that you’ve had chance to rest. Nothing better than new PJs hey? I still buy magazines but I always wonder why I still buy them! They are so rubbish and I read them for about 2 minutes. I have to confess that I watched the Madonna scene over and over again (like 10 times) and was crying with laughter. I have a really immature sense of humour. I could not stop! I just noticed Emma’s comment above about Eva – absolutely HILARIOUS! I love selling on eBay. Hope you made some cash! xx

    I’ve had to really curb my language lately because Riley’s started copying everything i say, including the naughty words. An outburst in a shop the other day in front of too many people left me highly embarrassed! They don’t miss a trick these kids! Hope you’re recovering well from your op? xxx #LittleLoves

    So pleased to read that your op went well lovely. Hope you’re recuperated now. I’m the same with PJs and being a 10-12 it drives me mad when places don’t do that size! xx
