To be honest I almost didn’t join in this week. It feels like it has been, because there are no other words to describe it, a bit of meh week. One that you focus on getting through. But then I realised I was losing the point of the linky that I love so much. Even in what feels like the crappest of weeks there are some small moments that make you happy, and actually when I sit down to look at it there has been quite a few.
This week I have had the attention span of a 3 year old and have struggled to even get to the end of a slightly longer than normal blog post. One post I did read this week was for Yellow Belly Mummy, In Praise Of The NHS. I actually read it on Monday when I was heading back to the hospital and I couldn’t agree more. Maybe I’m lucky, but I have received such wonderful care over the past few years from the NHS and the nurses have been amazing.
Last Sunday morning I made a last minute decision to take O to the cinema. After flicking on my phone I found that our local Cineworld was showing Planes 2 for the bargain price of £1.35 each. I quickly booked me and O tickets, got us up and dressed and off we went. O loves the original Planes, I’ve lost count of how many times he’s watched it and he loved the second. I love spending a bit of quality time holding my little boys hand watching his little face light up at what Dusty is up to.
I have been the queen of comfy pants this week so really nothing to report. I did buy some new socks which I think are quite pretty (I know, I’m clutching at straws!)
I’ve heard Meghan Trainors new song quite a few times this week and it has really grown on me.
A bit of a change in our living room. We have a really lovely open fire, that it just dawned on me that we keep covered up both of the time with a great big fireguard. Obviously we need it when the fire is in but when it’s not it really doesn’t need to be there, so I’ve moved it out of the way and replaced it with some gorgeous flowers I got sent to review this week from Debenhams. Aren’t they beautiful?
What I have loved the most about the past week is being able to spend so much time with O. We haven’t been rushing round and he’s loved having Mummy around a little bit more. On Sunday we went to our lovely local pub for dinner, the food in there is so delicious and it was the perfect way to end a weekend.
Have a lovely week and see you all next Friday! xxx
