So Sunday on my blog is usually the 52 Project – however this week instead of a photo, I wanted to share with you my two daughters doing the Ice Bucket Challenge. Unfortunately though, I can only download one of them and not the other, so until I get hold of my daughter (she’s at her dad’s), I can’t share them both with you! Instead, I decided I would do my weekly round up today and the 52 Project tomorrow.
This is my last week off work for the summer *sob sob*. I’ve had seven in total and I have to admit they’ve been lovely and I’m gutted to be going back to work. However it’s only another seven weeks until I’m off again so I probably shouldn’t moan too much! This week started off with the girls away with their dad. Like I mentioned last week, it was for four nights and four days this time, so it felt much more than their usual visit. To be absolutely honest, Chris and I didn’t do an awful lot between Monday-Wednesday. There was a lot of watching Vikings and plenty of movies too. I took my car to be re-tested for its MOT (and it passed), plus I went out to play Bingo with Nat (my first time!).
Chris and I had a date day/night on Wednesday. We went to watch Guardians of the Galaxy at the cinema and then went out for dinner at The Bronze Pig. I bought myself a new dress and I love it – can’t wait to share it with you all! I got nominated for the Ice Bucket Challenge and did it on Thursday, along with my partner Chris and our friend Jon. When the kids got home, Megan insisted on me nominating her and then Lily asked Megan to nominate her and that’s how they ended up doing it as well (though not for a few days after).
Friday we all went out to National Forest Adventure Farm and spent the day there. It was lovely to have another day out as a family – this time with Chris instead of my mum. I don’t know if I mentioned or not last week but Chris has two weeks off so its been really nice spending the last week with him, without worrying when and what times he’s at work. Since it was pretty late when we got back Friday, we didn’t do much else. Saturday was a day around the house but included bike riding and ice bucket challenges for the kids. While the house is much noisier now the kids are back, I have to admit its great to have them back.
Today has been another lazy day for most, though ironically I think I’ve done more around the house today than I have my whole holiday. The girls played on their computer and Chris went between Xbox and computer, all while I tidied up the house. However after lunch we went out on the bikes and down to Aldi, then Chris ended up outside with Megan for a while longer, while Lily and I came inside and played on the iPad together. I made the girls dinner and then their dad came to get them.
So that’s pretty much my week. I’ll be posting about some of the highlights – my new dress for date night, Bingo with Nat, and maybe even Guardians of the Galaxy review! I’m heading into work for 7am tomorrow and then I’m sure I’ll go back to being completely tired all of the time. Fingers crossed I’ll find the effort to keep posting – though at least tomorrow is an easy one now! Hope you’re all having a great summer.
