Hi Little Loves gang, hope you’re all well. I took a break from my usual Friday post last week as, to be brutally honest, I was knackered. Work has been crazy busy as we are hitting exam season, there is lots of marking to do and reports to fill in and as I finish next Friday I’m trying to get everything wrapped up as much as possible before I go. I’m at the point now where everything has been taught and revised and it’s all down to past papers and practice, which other teachers in my department will be overseeing in my absence.
An invitation to go on a pre school trip with O. Usually I receive these sorts of things with a heavy heart because if it isn’t on a Thursday (which it rarely is) we’re unable to go. They require an adult to accompany their child so as I can’t get the time off school O can’t go either. The date is for a Wednesday in July and I am so excited that I will be able to go with him for a day at forest school, building dens and cooking on fire pits. My mum has already offered to look after the baby for a few hours whilst we go and I can’t wait.
We starting watching Peaky Blinders and despite thinking I would hate it after the first few minutes I’ve been hooked. It’s the one Netflix programme my husband and I watch together and I sulked last Friday night because he fell asleep which meant I couldn’t start Season 2. We may have to binge watch it over the next few days as the third series is starting on BBC2 very soon.
I made a bookcase! Well, I put together a bookcase for the nursery. A bargain buy from the Aldi baby event. S (the husband) thinks I’m mad as he hates any form of DIY, and is completely rubbish at it, but there’s something quite satisfying about putting together furniture. Just as long as it’s not too complicated.
On the clothes front I’m down to wearing whatever still fits over my belly and isn’t uncomfortable, which is why an email I received a couple of weeks ago made me very happy. A lovely man asking if I wanted to work with Kurt Geiger to help promote the children’s range on their website, and to do that would me and O review a pair of their shoes. I love Kurt Geiger, I’m still in mourning for the poor pair of beautiful green heels I wore to death. After spending hours (and I honestly mean hours) on their website I decided on these gorgeous Liberty trainers. As stunning as the heels were as a soon to be mum of two boys I’ve gone for a more practical option. They are such soft leather and so comfortable and have already had plenty of wear in the past week.
I was so saddened to hear the news about the death of Victoria Wood, she was one of my all time favourite comedians and never failed to make me laugh. I’ve heard this a lot over the past week or so and it always put a smile on my face.
It’s Blog On MOSI this weekend and after being in two minds whether or not to go I did get a ticket after being on the waiting list. Despite going for the last two years I feel a little bit nervous as I’m not too sure who is going and I’m probably a little bit self-conscious of feeling like a giant frump at the moment. If you are going please pop over and say hello, I’ll be the 8 month pregnant one, probably sat down looking a bit worn out!
Have a wonderful week, and see you next Friday.
