Half way through the holidays – where is the summer going. I’m so concious that the weeks are slipping away I am trying to get so much in.
A quick round up of the week
An early morning brekkie treat with Ron at the local Harvesters followed by a lovely walk around Oakwell Hall to work it off. Was a perfect start to the day. Breakfast was amazing, not only in amount and quality, but cost too – at only £4.99 for unlimited continental option and then full English – can’t go wrong and it may turn in to a bit of a regular weekend outing.
Seeing everywhere and buying back to school stuff – very depressing
Birthday – uneventful which is the way I like them.
Birthday – 42yrs old – I’ve never really been able to come to terms with getting older. I remember turning 10, and being devastated that I would never be single figures again. Turning 30 was a nightmare, I was traumatised for days! 40 was more manageable, helped by a weekend away with Ron (we were newly dating at that time), Now I’m just doing my best to ignore them.
Lots of great home activities with the kids. From tie dying t-shirts , to a sports day & water slide with friends, to paint wars in the garden – its been a blast
Girls being at their dads. Its a bit of a double edged sword. Having a break is great. Having couple only time with Ron is fantastic and not to be taken for granted EVER – but I really really miss them when they’re not here.
Got all the practical jobs done on Saturday afternoon – lawn mowed, survived supermarket shop. Actually gave Aldi a try this week – everyone saying how much they save gave me a bit of a push. I wasn’t disappointed, must admit, spent less than I usually would. Washing done (and the makings of Mount Everest aka the ironing pile has started again), – might be mundane but still get a sense of satisfaction when its all done.
Out of the Ordinary
Attended the last of the summer weddings – congratulations to Nicola & Zak – finally tying the knot after 10 years together. Her dress was stunning, and Nicola’s three kiddies were adorable.
Natalie danced non stop at the evening do – she’s her mothers daughter afterall, she certainly has all my moves and more!
All the wonderful local beauty spots we have around here. We are so lucky to have so many amazing places on our doorstep where we can enjoy green open spaces, woodland walks, wildflower meadows. Great to enjoy as a couple and explore as a family.
