My Week That Was #18


As I am writing this it is Sunday afternoon, we are in the middle of a long weekend, Mr E is watchnig football on the ipad and Mads is asleep upstairs having an afternoon nap.  What a fab, relaxing Sunday, and we are looking forward to meeting our friends for the day tomorrow.

Without further ado here is My Week That Was…

Monday was a work day and as you all probably know by now I just love them!  Nothing exciting happened whatsoever and the rain hammered down all day making it even worse.  Nothing like a rainy work day to dampen your spirits.

Tuesday was yet again a work day, but the day was broken up slightly by one of my best friends and my goddaughter meeting me on my lunch hour.  Plus I had been paid and had got a nice quarterly bonus- this reminded me that work actually was a good thing!  In the evening we went over to my Mum’s for dinner so that was nice.

Wednesday I worked in the morning, and then in the afternoon I met my friend Jo and went over to my Mum’s salon so she could have eyelash extensions put on.  They took hours and look amazing, but I couldn’t be bothered with all the upkeep of them.  In the evening I went to the cinema with my sister to see ‘The Lucky One,’ which is a chick flick starring Zac Efron.  Me, being a total sucker for a love story, absolutely loved it.  We had a lovely evening together.

Thursday I went over to Lucy’s for the day for a play date with her and Little Man.  It was lovely to see them and we only live an hour away from each other so have said we shall do it once a month.  We went for a sandwich and a mooch around the shops, and I finally managed to spend the Mamas and Papas voucher I have had since Mads was born.  I bought her two very cute little summer outfits, one being a dress which is totally impractical but just gorgeous.

Friday I went to meet my NCT friends for coffee at a local garden centre, we had cake and the babies sat and had snacks before having a little play on the under cover playground.  Mads fell over and got her first little grazed knee, I am sure she will have plenty more of them in the future.  In the afternoon we came home and Mads had a really long two and a bit hour sleep, as I had tidied up in the morning I sat down and relaxed on the sofa which was very much needed.

Saturday was a lovely day.  We met up with one of my good friends Emma who we haven’t seen for ages, she came from London for the day to see us.  We had a great time catching up, we went out for a pub lunch, then went to feed the ducks, before going to a little tea shop to have a cake.  Mads was on her best behaviour which meant we could chat and gossip to our hearts content.  A true friend is someone who you can not see for six months and when you see them it feels like yesterday.  I am very lucky to have some wonderful friends in my life.  In the evening Mr E and I had risotto and watched rubbish tv.

Sunday has been spent relaxing and not doing much at all.  We went over to my Mum’s in the morning for a drink and to say hi, and then we went out shopping for wallpaper as we are going to wallpaper a wall in our bedroom.  Mads is having a nice long nap and we are relaxing.  A perfect bank holiday Sunday in my opinion.


And that was My Week That Was.
