This week has been a strange one as preschool was closed due to staff sickness so our normal routine was all thrown out. But this wasn't a bad thing as I got to spend more time with my eldest which was great, yet stressful! So here is my week.
Out & About
The weather wasn't great at the start of the week but we still managed to have a few days in the outdoors. And honestly haven't spent that much time at home. On Tuesday we went to Westonbirt Arboretum. It was sunny when we left home but by the time we got there it had changed to rain showers between the sun. But we had the best time the three of us. Wednesday we had to go shopping for my Mums birthday present so that got us out for the day, not the most interesting for the boys but needed to be done. Then on Thursday with the sun shining we managed to get to the park with a friend and her little one.
Fun at Home
With the rain dampening things, when we have been home we've been watching Disney films and eating popcorn. The boys are really starting to get into films and what better films than Disney! So when we needed some down time after some crazy charging about the house playing hide and seek, we all sat snuggled on the sofa with a film and some popcorn. We have also been making birthday cards for my Mum. The boys made some lovely cards with a combination of colouring in and stickers. They always seem to get more pen on their hands than on the paper.
Time for Me
On Tuesday I went to my friends open evening of her new nail salon. It is truly gorgeous and she really is such a talented nail technician. There was champagne and cakes. I didn't indulge in the champagne but I did enjoy the yummy cakes. She was doing a nail demonstration and the nails she was doing were beautiful. I also won a gift bag in the raffle! It was lovely to have some me time and to catch up with some friends.
My Happiest Moment
My happiest moment this week is one I hope doesn't annoy people as I know people don't like to hear about toilet activity but Noah did a wee on the toilet before bath time. And I am so proud! He is to young at 22 months to start potty training, I hope haha, but he wanted to sit on the toilet like his big brother. So I let him and he did a wee. Not sure if he knew he had done one but I gave him lots of praise, hugs and kisses.
Next week I would like to....
Do some crafty bits and pieces with the boys at home. As its half term, lots of places will be busy so I think we will have a week of chilling at home. So to make sure the boys don't get bored we will try and do painting, playdoh and crafts - everything I am not that great at!
