It’s been a pretty good week so far. Lots of lovely family time and a few more steps taken to hopefully increase our family. This is what we’ve been enjoying:
Other than reading Little O his bedtime story I’ve hardly read at all this week. We’ve been reading an old favourite of ours which was bought as a present from a friend of mine when O was born. It’s a another Julia Donaldson book, Rabbits Nap. A lovely story that’s quite short, so perfect for when he’s sleepy and wants to head straight off to dreamland.
The new series of Outnumbered returned on Wednesday, which me and hubby love. It’s so funny seeing the kids now compared to when the programme first started. It feels like you’ve watched them grow up, I suppose we have!
Bizarrely, we’ve been listening to Aqua’s Barbie Girl this week. At O’s nursery they were playing it to the toddlers during dance class and O seems to have taken a bit of a shine to it, so we’ve been playing it at home and he dances along.
We’ve been on a bit of a health kick this week so trying to eat well. On Tuesday I made Portobello Turkey Burgers, which were yummy and no bread involved! The only slight hiccup was that I slightly undercooked them and they had to be blasted in the microwave for a few minutes before we could eat them.
This week we went shopping for my belated Christmas present off my husband. We headed off to Cheshire Oaks as they have a fantastic Mulberry outlet shop and he treated me to the most gorgeous bag. I love it, and have been “wearing” it ever since!
This week I got to have a bonus day off. Monday was a Teacher Training Day at my school and as I only work 4 days a week I am allowed to miss one of the training days so chose this week to take the Monday off. My husband also took a days leave so we had a lovely family day which was such a treat.
