I had a very lovely hand-delivery yesterday evening from Rosie at ‘Kinship of Oxford’. A local small business that I’m so pleased to be working with, more on this soon!
The girls used up the rest of their holiday spending money from Grampy to get some magazines, I haven’t read much to be honest, the odd page of my ‘blog life’ guide, and a few blog posts.
I’ve literally been going to bed so early each night as i’ve really not felt well at all. I have watched a few vlogs including these from two of my favourite bloggers:
Hot Rod Show 2015 by Along Came Cherry. I love catching up with Jess’s vlogs, her little family always seem to be on the coolest trips, such a fun variety, and check out her vintage clothing outfits – fab! I’m also a huge fan of charity shops and love it when I find something extra good!
A day in the life at Camp Bestival 2015 by Lulastic. Love her blog, I loved watching this, and cant wait to do more festivals with our littles, probably next year now as this year seems pretty busy for us and we missed out on a local on recently. We may however be going to a foodie festival next weekend 🙂
Phoenix has been wearing his moccs about the house, you can see my full in the previous post to this 🙂
I’ve been needing a lot of calm soothing music this week, and this always does the trick.
Mr T made these but he is the bed at them so very blog-worthy 😉
We baked shortbread
The girls collected different coloured leaves from the garden to make some lovely flower pictures. You might be able t see on the right one that Yves spelled out ‘flowers’ as I sounded the letters to her. She’s loving writing at the minute.
Well this week has been rather testing, Mr T has been working late all week as he’s on a big contract, not getting home until past the littles bed times, I’ve been feeling poorly and when you have three little ones to keep smiling for can be tough. I’ve exploded porridge into a volcano, stubbed my toe, burnt toast black, Not only that, we’ve had lack of sleep this week with little Halle having night terrors and to top it off we had the worst moment of our parenting journey so far. We were in the bedroom, when we heard the noise that no parent should ever hear – him falling from top to bottom as I very stupidly left the gate open, to say I felt like the worst parent ever is an under statement, we both ran to try and get there in time but he was already at the bottom, shocked but miraculously okay. I felt broken and couldn’t stop crying or shaking.
I had him checked over at hospital and not a mark on him, or internal issue. I am most definitely counting my lucky stars. He’s a lot more fast paced than them at this age, and they were fast! He’s into trying everything that the girls do at the minute which includes walking down the stairs, much to my horror. These things are so awful in parenting, one little error that could’ve been so much worse.
Have a wonderful weekend everyone, tomorrow I will be spending the day with my lovely Nan who’s come to visit us for a few days from her home in Devon.
