Our Week That Was #8

November 6, 2012


Another busy week, with Halloween, lots of family visits, baking and playing with pumpkins; we never seemed to stop. Monday my Nana came to visit us but before she came we had a quick hour to paint some pumpkins and decorate the house. I must admit that Lucas wasn’t too interested in the painting but I had a great time! Tuesday morning we went to Tots and Tinies and that afternoon I attempted to get my baking done, not easy with a toddler. However, I did make a pumpkin pie and some Halloween fairy cakes. Halloween day we had Lucas’ cousin and Grandma and Grandad visiting in the day; Lucas dressed up as our little pumpkin and Mummy and Daddy even made an effort! That evening Nanny came for tea and we all enjoyed the pumpkin pie, it was delicious. Such a shame I only make it once a year.

Our Week That Was 8

On Thursday I met Lucas’ Grandma and cousin for a very long walk and the boys had a fun afternoon playing. It’s great to let them loose together and I get a really good nap out of him afterwards, always good for Mummy. Friday we went to our local library, had a quiet afternoon in, then had some friends round for a naughty take away. Saturday morning I was meeting my two best friends for coffee; although they both love to see Lucas I decided he could have some quality Daddy time. It was so nice to be able to have a brew and chat without any distractions, sometimes the simplest things are a real treat and we were there for hours catching up. On Sunday we had another treat, lunch at my mums! We took Lucas to the park I used to play at when I was little and he watched Toy Story with my brother in the afternoon. We only moved back closer to family a couple of months ago but I love being able to catch up with everyone so easily and even when we are mad busy, we are never bored. That’s our adventures for the week, our week that was.

    It really is lovely having some baby free time, as much as I love my little girl I do really enjoy having time away from her too- it is impossible to have a coffee or eat with her there now as you can’t take your eyes off her for a second.
    I wanting to decorate some pumpkins this year but I didn’t get round to it- there is always next year I guess! x

      I think ‘me’ time for Mummy is so important, I loved it but it was nice to come home and have my little boy come for a cuddle!x
