Hello! Another week has flown by and here is my round up of it. Sadly I’m not really in the mood to blog – and while I know they say you shouldn’t bother if you’re not in the mood – I didn’t want to get behind either!
So this week has been my first full week back at work and also the week the kids started back at school. In all honesty, for me at least, its been absolutely exhausting. While I don’t work a lot – only 5 hours a day – when you have seven weeks of relaxing (or at least going at your own pace) its a bit of a shock to the system going back to work. Not only that, but I’ve been doing some extra/overtime this week so that’s taken its toll too. Work has been okay though and not really much to report on that front.
Monday through Friday, I had work as I mentioned. As well as that, the kids were with their dad for the Monday into Tuesday, when my mum then picked them up and had them Tuesday. They stayed at home with Chris on Wednesday before finally returning to school on Thursday and Friday. There wasn’t anything of particular note during Monday, though Tuesday when I got home from work I baked Chocolate Orange cupcakes and they were amazing!
Again there wasn’t anything of real note on Wednesday or Thursday, but Friday after school/work we all went out for dinner to Prezzo as a sort of “we survived the week” celebration. We had a lovely dinner and then afterwards the girls insisted on running through the fountains in Marshall’s Yard – which was hilarious. Afterwards, because they were soaked through, Chris offered to walk home with the girls rather than take them in the car. I drove back home and then walked back to meet them for the rest of the walk home.
Saturday was a fairly relaxing day, with no real plans. I made some more cupcakes – this time chocolate milkshake flavour. They were yummy too! On top of that, in the evening, Jon and Nat came around and we all played the Firefly board game. Chris bought this from LFCC (comic con) and its been a pretty staple favourite ever since. On Sunday, mum had been meant to come over but she wasn’t feeling very well. As a surprise I baked homemade bread and made soup, before taking it over for lunch with her. Chris also took Megan out on her bike in the morning and she’s definitely gaining more confidence. I went out again in the afternoon with both Megan and Lily and by that point the weather was just perfect for a lovely Sunday afternoon.
Finally in the evening Chris was out at a work leaving do so I just chilled out and watched TV. When Chris got home we just snuggled up on the sofa and ended up watching a movie that had us both in tears!
That was pretty much my week. No highs and no lows really, just back to the same routine and making my body adjust accordingly. One a plus side its now only six weeks until I’m off again so that’s a reason to be happy right?
