Hello! It’s been a few weeks since I’ve had chance to join in and looking at the calendar for the next couple of weeks, it will probably be the summer holidays before I get chance to again. The past couple of weeks we have had meet the new teachers day, sports days, performances – and we still have birthday parties, school trips and a new baby niece or nephew to be born. The next few weeks are going to be insane!
Not a great deal again (ok – absolutely nothing at all) but Harrison has been reading like a superstar at home and at school and reached his level 6 reading target, which we were super proud of!
I gave in and downloaded 50 Shades Darker (don’t judge me – I like the books!). It was ok – not as good as the first film and not as good as the books but Jamie Dornan makes it worth watching! I also watched Bridget Jones Baby on the weekend which was absolutely brilliant.
I’d heard a song on the radio, which turned out to be one by Rihanna, that featured samples from Santana’s ‘Maria Maria’. I loved that song when it first came out, so of course I was straight onto Spotify to add it to my playlist. It’s even better than I remembered. I really love Spanish music and anything with that sort of sound to it.
The weather caught me out a bit this week – I wasn’t expecting it to be so warm! I plucked up the courage to wear my new maxi dress from JD Williams. I loved it when I ordered it but I was worried it was a bit too bright on me. Turns out I shouldn’t have worried – lots of people said how nice it was! There will be a full review on the dress and the other bits I have from JD Williams on the blog this weekend.
Um…erm…well I talked about making flapjacks next week. Does that count? Probably not!
I took a bit of a break from blogging and social media last week, and my god, it was needed. I hadn’t realised just how much it had taken over my life, and I felt like I spent all evening, every evening in front of my laptop. I can’t remember the last time I truly relaxed without feeling guilty about work piling up. I’ve spent a lot more time with Graham in the evenings, which has done us the world of good. I’m trying to find a way of reorganising myself so that I have a better work/life balance. At the moment I’m playing catch up, so I’m posting almost every day still but over the summer, I think I’m going to stick to a schedule where I post 3 times a week.
How was your week?
