All in all, its been a fab week. I honestly can’t believe how fast the week has gone though and sadly I’m left with only one more week of holiday left. However, rather than dwell on that, I’m going to tell you about the fun that this week has been!
Monday to Thursday, the kids were still at school and Chris was at work. I however, was OFF WORK all week. On Monday morning, Chris wasn’t at work so I left him in bed while I got up and took the girls to school. I headed straight back but by the time I was home, Chris was already up and watching daytime TV. We sat together for a while but then he headed upstairs to his computer and I just sat on my laptop, watching lots of terrible TV – mostly “Say Yes to the Dress”. I made chicken korma for Chris’ lunch, but also so it was ready for me and the girls to have for dinner. Chris then left for work at around 1pm and I continued on with my day of total relaxation, whilst procrastinating terribly about a job application I had to fill in. I headed out to pick the girls up from school around 3.45pm and after picking them up from their Singing Stars, I popped to meet my brother at the garage, to look at a new car he was thinking of getting. Biggest news of the day was that Lily finally lost a tooth which has been wobbly for ages. She looks so funny though bless her.
After that the girls and I headed home and got some dinner. Lily read her reading book, Megan went on the DS to practice her Brain Training and then I went back to watching “Say Yes to the Dress” (haha, I know… sad isn’t it?). Once Lily was in bed I finally got my butt into gear and worked on my CV. Mum had left me loads of notes and changes she thought I should make, so I ploughed my way through that before starting on my cover letter. It took the majority of the evening, being almost midnight by the time I completely finished, but I have to admit I was pretty pleased with it when I was done. Chris had arrived home just before 11pm and had sat playing his Xbox in order to let me finish what I was doing. We headed to bed just before midnight and then as the clock struck 12, wished each other a “Happy Anniversary” before getting some sleep.
Tuesday was another great day. It started off by receiving a letter from my Mum who said she liked my CV and cover letter. She passed comment that she would hire me even without an interview and that was nice to hear. I then got up to find that Chris had left me a card – it was our 2 year anniversary of getting together and I was very touched by the sentiment of what he wrote inside, plus the humour of the card itself.
I then took the girls to school and headed off to my mum’s house as she’d asked me to put some bread in the freezer. I think possibly she’s going crazy as there was no bread insight so either she imagined even having it, or she’d put it in the freezer herself before going away! After that I nipped to Tesco for Petrol and Asda to collect a parcel. I popped in to see Chris too and stayed with him for about twenty minutes. Eventually I headed home and ran a bath. I added Lush to make it extra special! I then made myself a cup of tea and climbed into the bath for a long soak. Finally I headed upstairs to get changed and risked trying on a pair of size 14 jeans. They were snug but they fitted properly and I was so incredibly chuffed!
I headed back downstairs and spent the next few hours sorting out tickets for the cinema, writing up another blog post, replying to emails and so on. Chris was due home around 2pm and then we were heading straight out. When he got back, he got changed and then we headed back to Lincoln. We parked in Lucy Tower and headed into the Odeon, with tickets to see The Maze Runner. I’m sure I’ll actually write a review at some point but it was really great and much better than I had even expected. After the cinema we walked a little way down the round to the Handmade Burger Company and had dinner there.
The food was amazing and as always it was nice to get out with just Chris for a while. We weren’t long eating dinner though as I’d offered to pick the girls up from their dad on the way home so we called in at Saxilby and got them. When we were home and the girls were in bed, I settled down to finish off my job application form, knowing it needed to be in the next day. Sadly it all went a bit pear-shaped and instead of it being a thirty minute job, it ended being a two hour one. Chris and I had been supposed to spend the evening watching TV but in the end Chris was too tired by the time I finished so we just headed to bed.
Wednesday started off quite busy. Lily was having a superhero day at school so we had to get her ready for that. Megan was going to a party after school so we had to make sure we had everything together for that too. As we dashed out of the front door, I luckily remembered my job application and we all headed off to school. After dropping the kids off at their classrooms I headed to the office to drop off my form. I genuinely felt a lot lighter after it was done. I headed back home and waited for Nat, who was coming over for the day to work on some stuff we had planned. We had a very productive day, stopping only to get some lunch from Morrisons and then later in the afternoon when a cake delivery arrived.
We both headed off to get the kids around 3pm and although I was only picking up Lily, I met up with Megan too to get her changed and organised ready for the party. She headed off with a huge group of friends – to go to a recording studio and then to Pizza Hut – while Lily and I headed home. We spent a really nice evening together and then eventually at about 6pm Chris arrived too. After Lily was in bed I headed out to get Megan but unfortunately they were running late and it was 8pm before I managed to get on our way home. When we got back Megan went straight to bed and Chris and I settled down to watch The Walking Dead and Gotham, which we’d been meaning to do the night before. After that we just headed to bed, since Chris was up early again the next morning.
Thursday was another busy day, again spent completely with Nat as we worked on stuff together. I’d picked her up because of her having no car which meant we needed to leave enough time for me dropping her off again when we left for school. After dropping Nat off I headed to school to pick up Lily but I wasn’t getting Megan as she was going to her friend Alex’s house for dinner. Instead Lily and I headed to the storage unit to pull out a few things and also put some things in. After that we went to my mum’s to meet my brother and we waited for him there so we could go down and help him pick up his new car. Once we were all done with that, the three of us headed to Pizza Hut and had dinner. This was largely to waste time before picking up Megan but also since Megan had been the night before, it was nice to treat Lily. After we were finished with dinner we swung by Chris’ work just to say hi and then headed to Saxilby to pick Megan up. Finally we all headed home, along with my brother who was coming to spend the evening watching OUAT. Eventually he went home and Chris arrived back from work. We headed to bed almost straight away though as we were pretty tired.
Friday was the beginning of our long weekend away and as I’m going to post about it separately, I’m not going to add it here. Not only that, but this post is already much longer than my weekly round-ups usually are, largely owing to the fact I actually did stuff, with not being a work. Keep an eye out for my weekend round-up, coming soon!
