I feel like we haven’t stopped this week! Instead of having a nice relaxed bank holiday, we have been busy painting the living room and swapping our bedroom with the boys room. The decorating has all had to be done in the evenings when the kids have gone to bed, which is far from ideal but it’s that or have everyone and everything covered in paint!
Last week I mentioned that my brother’s girlfriend had asked me to be a bridesmaid when they get married next July, which gives me just over a year to lose some weight. I’m not doing anything drastic because it just doesn’t work for me, but I am trying to make healthier choices. I’ve discovered I really like raw sugar snap peas as a snack, so I’m keeping some in the fridge to nibble on!
On Saturday, I went to the reopening of The Body Shop on New Street, in Birmingham. They gave me a facial and showed me a BB cream that adjusted to the colour of my skin. I really like how it makes me look like I have a bit of colour to my skin – I’m always so pale!
Saturday afternoon was spent relaxing on the sofa, watching Home (our new favourite film!) snuggled up under a blanket.
I completely ruined my nails doing the glossing, so dug out my barbie-pink nail polish and did them myself. I absolutely love this colour. I’m having my nails soaked off next week – I’ve had gel acrylics since just before Christmas, so I want to give my natural nails a break for a couple of months.
Alex has suddenly become very attached to this bear, which he has randomly named Bill. Apparently it is his baby, and he goes everywhere with Alex. This is the first time that any of the kids has ever really become attached to a bear, and it is adorable!
That’s my week on Instagram. How was your week?
