Sunny Days, Family and Fitness - What Made Me Happy This Week

This week has been a bit of a strange one as my best friend has been on her holidays so I have felt like a little lost lamb lol! But this has meant that my house is incredibly tidy and we have had some chilled out days. I am not great at being by myself for too long so while Mr C is at work I am so used to having her up the road or at the end of the phone to chat about random stuff, and to snapchat!! 

Our week has still been lovely and I have even managed to start my tan off for the summer!

1. Courgetti spaghetti. This may seem like a random one to start off on but I have been meaning to try it for ages and to get Mr C to try it too, and we did last weekend. It was yummy! I made it into a carbonara which went down a treat so will definitely be appearing on the menu again soon.

2. Water fights. With the weather being so warm there was only one thing for it and it was to get the warm guns out. We were sent a Nurf one (review coming soon) so I got Noah a little one as I knew there would be fights over just the one. They had a ball and loved it, the best way to cool down! They even got all the adults wet too which I didn't complain about while going lobster red in the sun! We even got the paddling pool out before the rain hit, fingers crossed we can have more fun in it soon.

3. A wedding reception. Mr C and I got to dress up a bit for a wedding reception on Sunday evening. The weather was glorious and we had a lovely time.

4. Mummy and Noah time. We have managed to have quite a bit of us time this week which has been lovely. We have taken a few strolls to the park, and I mean strolls as he walks at a snails pace and been to see the swans and their signets (I didn't get a picture as one started to walk towards me and I freaked!)

5. Time with my Nan. This has got to be one of the best things about our house move, being so close to my Nan. She is now a 15 minute drive down the road and on Thursday after dropping Mr C at the train station we went and spent the afternoon with her. We had a very hot and sticky walk/cycle along the common near her house and the boys picniced in her garden for tea.

6. CrossFit and running. I am loving exercise at the minute, I have caught the bug and I love it. I have been out running most days this week and I even got to a CrossFit session thanks to my Nan watching the boys for me. I am feeling so much better about myself having exercised and knowing my chocolate in the evening has been earnt.

7. A girly night. On Saturday night I headed over to a friend were she fancied my toes up for me (she's an amazing nail technician) and we drank cider while catching up and making plans for future months.

  1. Wish I could come to crossfit with you hun!!! How nice being so close to your Nan and having time with the boys.At Brit Mums can you show me Snapchat?! xx #happydays

  2. awww this looks lovely. I too am a new major fan of courgetti - put some olive oil in a pan on medium heat and pop in 4 garlic cloves just squashed with the side of a knife and some pepper let that cook for 10 mins then whack in the courgette and cook until soft. finish with parmasaan... amazing!! Moving on from food lol i love water fights too!!

  3. This sounds seriously idyllic! I smiled for you all the way though! I tried the courgette spaghetti but my son was having none of it! I am taking my nan for some quality time with my son to Butlins..wish me luck she wont let me drink and I will have to go to bed at 9.30 but it is so lovely spending time with her. We had a water fight the other evening too...I was very soggy and my son very happy! Lovely post #fortheloveofBLOG

  4. We have been doing water fights as well, the boys love it but I keep getting picked on - so not fair! #fortheloveofBLOG xx

  5. I love how happy you all look in your pictures and how nice to be so close to your nan! #fortheloveofblog

  6. Girly time sounds fab, as does the fact that you have your best friend down the road. My best friend moved about 5 hours away and it just isn't the same without her- I am blaming her for my lack of me time haha! Thank you for sharing in #HappyDaysLinky x

  7. I'll have to Google crossfit, I've not heard of that before. I spend lots of time with my nanna each week, I love it! Thanks for linking up to #HappyDaysLinky x
