It’s been a crazy busy week and it still hasn’t finished being crazy! As I write this, its Wednesday afternoon (though no doubt I’ll backdate) but as you can see, I’m massively behind. For the most part, this week hasn’t had that many major points of interest, so I’m going to make this a bit quicker than normal. I’ll still try to cover the whole week though!
Monday was a school day and Chris was at work. However Megan had a school trip that I was also going on and as such we dropped Lily off early at her Grandma’s, went on the school trip (all day) and were back for 5pm. Megs and I had a lovely day at Twycross Zoo but I was exhausted in the evening. I didn’t do anything other than lie and watch TV! The next day was luckily a lazy day. I needed things from town so I walked in, but I got plenty done, caught up on blogging and even housework too. Wednesday I finally picked up my new kettle (I ordered it and then it got lost – don’t ask!) and also went back into town with Chris as he had an Opticians appointment. Sadly I wasn’t feeling very well (something that had come on the night before) so I didn’t end up doing much constructive.
By Thursday I was feeling better and a lot more productive. My new sewing machine foot arrived (after I lost the last one) and so I got to sewing in the evening, making Megan a Ravenclaw pencil case. Also in the mail that day was a new Thomas Kinkade canvas that I’d ordered – technically to replace a duplicate gift I’d received from Nat. We had a note through the door about Dominos opening and I knew it would be bad! So bad that we actually ended up ordering that very same evening and again over the weekend. It was amazing though but so expensive!
The next day was Friday and Nat and I started a DIY project on my bedroom. We covered all the furniture and stripped the ceiling paper, before starting to paint the walls. I posted about it on Twice the Mum. The rest of the weekend was spent working on the bedroom too. Chris and I spent both days, all day, of the weekend, sorting out the room. Sadly it still isn’t done but we’re getting there. Not much else happened over the weekend though the kids at least managed to relax.
This week is looking like it will be busy busy busy, at least for the next few days. I have a Murder Mystery to write, some sewing to do, some blog posts to sort out and of course my bedroom to finish decorating. I really hope to get on top of the vital things straight away as I’d love to get on with the things I want to do, rather than those I feel I have to do!
