This past week has seemed a little hectic and slightly chaotic at times. We have finally started work on the playroom after years of it being on the ‘DIY to do list’. As the kids are getting older, we plan to have it as a second living space. Yes it will still be filled with the 10 year olds toys, but I have a multitude of Ikea storage units to hide them in. I can’t wait for the walls to be painted in a gorgeous grey colour. Anyway here are my little loves for the past week.
This week I started reading the Casual Vacancy by JK Rowling. This is the first JK Rowling book I have ever read, yes that’s right I have never read Harry Potter (gasp). It’s not my usual read, but it caught my eye in a charity swop. It was on TV a few years ago but I didn’t see the series. I am about 30 pages in and enjoying it so far.
I finally have something interesting to put in this section. Last week we joined the Now TV Blog Squad, and I was excited when I saw The Affair on the Entertainment section. I have wanted to watch it for ages, and we are 3 episodes in and I am already hooked. It’s quite gripping and I am loving it so far. Roll on 10pm when the teen goes to bed.
I heard lots of chatter from the 10 year old about her day at Blackpool Pleasure Beach last weekend. Yes they all got very wet and very cold, but they had so much fun along with 8000 other cubs. I love all the adventures that being part of the scouting movement brings her.
The husband is far better at cooking than me. Thankfully he cooks at the weekend and I cook during the week. This cottage pie is definitely in the top 5 of the nicest things he has ever made. It’s Slimming World friendly too so a winner all round.
Far too many of these. On Sunday I had a niggling headache all day, and when I woke on Monday it was a full blown migraine. It was bad enough for me to call in work sick, and I spent the majority of the day in bed. The only relief I get from a migraine is Kool n Soothe gel strips, and I wrote about them in more detail here
Husband and I have another night away to look forward to this weekend. We are working with Superbreak, and I will be sharing our adventures when we get back. Have a great week x
