Wow! What a week it has been! Obviously its been a work and school week, so aside from all that, this is what I’ve been up to!
Monday I had a doctors appointment (uck!). I had my asthma and pill review, plus a surprise (yet overdue) smear test (double uck!). I came home to relax but actually ended up planning Amy’s birthday cake, as well as bit of birthday party planning too! Sadly I can’t post pictures as she’ll see!
Tuesday it was Pancake Day! We had pancakes for dinner and for pudding afterwards. It was Pancake Heaven!
Wednesday was Lily’s birthday and this will warrant a whole post of its own. We started off the day opening presents in bed, obviously spent the day at work/school and then went out for dinner at Prezzo’s later. She was a very lucky girl – her main gifts being: a new desktop computer, a 2DS plus some games and loads and loads of Disney Lego. She was so well behaved all day too, none of this over giddiness that kids sometimes get on exciting days!
Thursday I wasn’t working in the evening, which made a nice change as of late. I went and did a little shopping after work, before heading home. This was nice too as I rarely get time to shop alone these days. My ex had the girls and so Chris and I got to spend some much needed time together. We didn’t do an awful lot but it was nice just to hang out together!
Friday was lovely as it was the end of the week. Mum had the girls overnight and Chris was at work so I had the house all to myself when I got home. Nat came later on in the evening and we spent several hours dying our hair. I now have pink tips!
Saturday was a nice relaxing day, doing not a lot! The girls came back from mum’s around mid-morning and we all spent the day just playing on our computers, watching TV etc. When Chris got home from work he bought us Indian for dinner and we spent the evening catching up on several hours of TV.
Sunday was a beautifully sunny day which was perfect as we were heading out for a family day. I had been asked to visit The Deep in Hull and blog about their penguins, so we decided to make a whole day of it. We set off around 10am, went to the Humber Bridge and then onwards to Hull and The Deep.
We arrived at The Deep around 11.30am but the girls were already grumbling they were hungry so we sat and ate some early lunch in the car. We then spent the next 3 hours inside The Deep before heading back out to the car and going to Toys R Us on the way home! When we got home, we had a very sadistic dinner of Fish and Chips but it was amazing.
I then spent the evening on my computer, while catching up on some of my own TV. Chris spent some time on his computer before eventually coming through to watch some TV with me. We headed to bed at 10.30 and read for a while, before finally getting to sleep.
It’s been a really great week and I’m honestly looking forward to the next one!
