After the fab highs of last week, this one had a lot to live up to, and to be honest it really hasn’t managed it. It’s generally been a bit of a meh week, one of those you just get through, but there are holidays a coming so the next few weeks will be better.
Anyway, after a pretty ordinary week, let’s focus on the good things.
Read Slight cheat as I haven’t really read this yet but been stocking up on books ready for the hols. Now that O is in his own seat and we have on site grandparent babysitters I’m a bit hopeful I may get to read a couple of books and I picked this up from work for the bargain price of 50p! Looking forward to getting stuck in.
Watched On Saturday night we abandoned Eurovision and watched a film on Channel 4 instead, Man On A Ledge. We’d rented it on iTunes for a holiday once (on a friends recommendation) and with one thing and another never got a chance to sit down and watch it. It was brill! Had me hooked from the very first moments and I loved the outcome.
Heard A very cheesy one, but with Eurovision being on on Saturday Abba’s Waterloo was being played on the radio. I love this song. It was our college Karaoke song, and one that always had me up dancing at uni (yes, I am that cool!) I ended up driving round the block a few times to hear it in full.
Made *Tenuous link alert* I made a trip to our local charity shop, and was pretty chuffed with my findings. I picked up a gorgeous Wedgewood Christmas tree decoration (roll on December) and the prettiest little tea set ever, perfect photo prop material!
Wore My rain coat on what turned out to be a very wet trip up to the Lake District. Luckily my little man thought the big puddles were all part of the fun!
And lastly…the complete highlight of my week! My mum and dad look after O on a Wednesday so I arrived to pick him up to find these little treats that my parents had bought for me. When I asked what the reason was (it’s really not the norm for them to do this sort of thing), their response was “for just being you!” So after what had been a pretty mundane week this gave me a massive, very much needed, boost!
See you next Friday, little loves. Anyone fancy a choccie? xx
