This week I’m attempting to keep up with what I’m doing, so as to have a bit better round-up than last week! Its been another lovely week of summer holidays and I hope it doesn’t end too soon. On Monday the girls went to their dad’s, after he collected them around 11am. Chris was out on a driving lesson and so I got some sewing done. However I didn’t really have the concentration for it in the end, so I sat and watched TV while working on computer stuff, blogging, ordering some sewing bits etc. I watched Sharknado 3 (yep, I’ve seen the other two as well), worked on my new store (Closet Geek) website and generally just relaxed.
Tuesday I needed to head out to get the girls from their dads and Chris went out on his driving test. When the girls and I got back from Lincoln, we went to Aldi and Chris text to say he passed his test!! The girls and I spent the rest of the day doing our own thing. Mostly I sewed and finally got somewhere with the Alice cosplay I’ve been working on recently. We had lunch, dinner etc. and I allowed the girls to wait up till 10pm when Chris got home from work. We opened a bottle of fizz and all had a toast for him to celebrate his pass.
On Wednesday Chris was off work and we didn’t have anything planned so we all just bummed around. I spent majority of the day sewing again, while Chris was on his computer, Megan spent majority of the day reading and Lily was on Minecraft/YouTube. For dinner we treated ourselves to Chinese takeaway, again a sort of celebration for Chris and that was pretty much it (I believe I went back to sewing!)
Thursday was a day out. Mum picked us up at 10am in order to head to York. We popped to Boyes, then to the NRM. We wandered around the museum till 2pm, when we then went to the theatre to see The Railway Children. Afterwards we headed back to the car and drove home. On the way back we stopped for dinner at NYC Bar and Grill, before finally getting home and collapsing. I came on my computer (and started this post), while Megan read and Lily went on her computer. Megan switched to her computer as Lily went to bed and I just spent the evening watching TV and working on blog stuff.
Friday Nat came around for the whole day which was lovely. I sat and sewed while we chatted and the girls played happily on their computers. In the evening I finally got the Alice in Wonderland cosplay finished and even managed to start on my own. Saturday I managed a bit of a lay-in, then the girls and I went into town for a while and there was a beach day going on which was quite good fun and the girls had their picture taken with a giant deckchair and we had Subway for lunch followed by Candy Floss. I then spent the rest of the afternoon and evening sewing.
On Sunday we headed out to look for a car for Chris. We’d found a couple of garages open on Sunday towards Scunthorpe so started there. We saw a car we liked almost straight off but checked two other places as well. In the end we went back to the first place and bought the car for Chris. It was after lunch time so we all headed to a Tesco nearby but when we spotted there was actually KFC, McDonalds, Pizza Hut etc we actually decided to have McDonalds. Chris sorted out all his insurance for his car on the wifi and then we headed off home separately. On the way back he went to see his Nan and we came home. I spent the afternoon and evening sewing, before starting to read my latest book, Paper Towns.
Great week and another planned. Really loving the summer hols so far!
