Another week and the last of the summer holidays. Back to preschool next week. Not sure how I am feeling about this. Yes it has been stressful but I love having them both at home.
I kick started the week with it being my birthday. What better way to start a week!
So Saturday was my birthday, I was woken up with cake and singing - what more could a mummy want! We then enjoyed a lovely lunch and play at the new Brewers Fayre soft play, we were joined by my Mum and Nan. Then the hubby and I enjoyed a few hours at the pub having a quiet drink while Mum took the boys food shopping. Then the evening was full of laughs, drink and food with our best friends. My friend got me my favourite flowers which are still brightening up our kitchen.
Sunday was a day full of parties. No photos here as it was a manic day but we started it off with Finley enjoying soft play for his pre school friends birthday. We then travelled down to see family in Bournemouth and to celebrate our nieces birthday. It was so lovely to have all the family together and to see all the kids playing.
Monday I was treated to lunch made by my friends husband, as she was working and we had a viewing. Monday was a nice chill out day after such a hectic weekend.
On Tuesday I think I lost my mind and took the boys to the new soft play we had gone to on Saturday. It was manic and way too busy. I think we are going to try it out again once the schools are back.
Wednesday we enjoyed a shopping trip with my sister in law for some much needed trousers for Finley. He seems to have had a growth spurt and all his trousers are too short!
On Thursday we popped into town. We walked and then bussed it back again. We met a fellow local blogger in the park, which was lovely to talk blog with someone who talks our language. We unfortunately got caught in the rain but the boys thought it was so funny!
To end the week we enjoyed a trip to westonbirt with some friends. It again was such a lovely day with lots of giggles. Noah decided to jump in the biggest muddy puddle he could find, we dressed up baby in my sunglasses and Finley did some tree climbing!
Here's to the bank holiday weekend.
Sounds like you've had a busy week. Happy birthday for earlier in the week! I took my girls to the farm yesterday and it was pretty busy too, imagine it'll be quieter when the schools go back! #justanotherlinkyReplyDelete
I'm a terrible Mummy I really hate softplay and will make any excuse to get out of going :-0.I've loved having the kids home and will be gutted when they go back x #justanotherlinkyReplyDelete
What a lovely week you've had - happy birthday for last Saturday! Sounds like you had a great day. Soft play is much more fun in term-time when it is less manic! How lovely to meet up with another local blogger in the park - definitely nice to chat to someone else who 'gets' it :-)ReplyDelete
Seemed like a very busy week! It was nice you woke up with cake and singing on your birthdays, that's so sweet of them! I really would love to have a chat personally with a blogger too, as they understand better what we're doing. #busdoinglifeReplyDelete

Happy Belated Birthday. Sounds like a busy week! I braved soft play for the first time a couple weeks back, I felt like I'd list my mind too! #JustAnotherLinkyReplyDelete
A belated happy birthday!! What a lovely week and I just love the sunglasses pic!! So cute xReplyDelete
I'm not too sure why but the photo of the doll wearing sunglasses freaked me out a bit!ReplyDelete
How lovely you got to chat to another blogger. I remember how excited I was when I bumped into a fellow local blogger (I thought I was the only one from my town) on a train. It's nice to chat to someone who 'gets it'.
