A much quieter week

I had all good intentions of getting this post live on Sunday, but yesterday we had the laziest of lazy days. Even turning on the laptop was too much effort. I do think you need days like this from time to time, and I am trying to embrace them and not feel too guilty. Infact this past week has been a much quieter week, though of course not every week can be full of crazy birthday celebrations. Here is a little look back at the past 7 days.

The final birthday celebration

Okay, I did squeeze in a final birthday meal with friends this week, and we went to the wonderful Hollies Farm Shop in Cheshire for an evening meal. They do an excellent £10 Burger and Pudding deal on a Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, and look how my fruit pudding was served. I had a lovely evening putting the world to rights, with 2 of my closest friends.

Our wonderful NHS

This past week we have had 4 appointments in our family Nothing major, just routine blood tests, visits to the Doctor etc, and it made me realise how wonderful our NHS is. Imagine if we had been asked to pay for the privilege of seeing a professional, after our appointment had finished. We are very lucky to have the NHS in this country.

Cold Feet and Cleaning Up

We don’t tend to watch an awful lot of ‘traditional TV’ as we prefer Netflix, but the wonderful Cold Feet is back on our screens. It feels like a warm hug, plus the characters have older teenage children, so it’s like looking into our future. Though I don’t know if that’s a good thing or not.

We have also started watching Cleaning Up with Sheridan Smith on ITV.

Truly Madly Guilty by Liane Moriarty

After finishing The Husband’s Secret by the same author, I started Truly Madly Guilty straight away. It seems a little slower to get into, but I still have high hopes for the book.

So that’s a round up of our much quieter week, which I think was very much needed. What have you been up to this past week?

  1. I love quiet Sundays, sometimes you just need to put everything down and just take it easy. I keep eyeing up The Hollies, they have extended the burger and pud offer so I might get to go and sample it yet x

    • The burger and pudding offer is amazing value, and it really is a beautiful place. I think we are going to take the kids during half term as Morgan is burger mad lol x

    • Cold Feet is brilliant, and I can totally relate to it as they have similar aged kids. I was really shocked when they brought out my dessert, it was too nice to eat lol x

  2. I love quiet weeks, we seem to slow down a bit more at this time of the year, too cold to do anything and we have hectic lives during the week.
    Need to catch up with Cold Feet, remember watching it years ago when it was first on
    Have a great week!

    • Yes we watched it when it was first on years ago, I am so glad they brought it back on tv. We were in desperate need for a quiet week, and it was lovely to take things at a slower pace x

  3. Ooh your birthday meal looked fab, I love that platter, and all the gin! I love love, love Cold Feet and have watched every series its like we have grown up with them isnt it? And chill out days are good every now and then xx

    • Yes, we have definitely grown up with them, but my goodness last weeks episode had me sobbing (I guess that’s the sign of a good show, and good acting). Really enjoyed our quieter week which was very much needed x

    • You definitely need slower weeks from time to time, as the previous two weeks had been crazy busy and lots of fun. I feel like the Cold Feet characters are real life friends lol x
