Thank the heavens it is Friday! It has been one of those weeks in the Boo Roo and Tigger Too household. With an amazing family trip to Butlins Minehead for their #WWEButlins weekend. Roo had the opportunity to celebrate her 11th birthday whilst we were there and she had such a wonderful weekend. Heading home in time to celebrate Tigger’s 7th birthday (never a good idea to have birthdays three days apart). After that it all went downhill, with all of us suffering in one way or another will illness, with Tigger being sent home from school on Thursday after being sick in his classroom (so sorry Miss M and Miss C). Add into the mix technical issues with my laptop and blog, I have simply wanted to crawl back under the duvet and hide from the world.
I’ve been in quite a reflective mood this week, prompted by a visit to London which I was asked questions about my blog. How I started it, why I blog, what I blog about etc. It made me think back to the good old days when blogging was much simpler. I simply wrote about what I wanted, in the way I wanted and pressed publish. Whereas now there is so much more that goes into creating a blog post and I guess I miss those simpler days.
Suddenly Monday appears again
Where was the weekend?
I lost it again
The above lyrics are from one of my favourite Melanie C songs – Suddenly Monday. These few lines have been racing through my mind this week as the days have been ticking away. Before I know it, it will be Monday again and not only will I have lost the weekend but the week previous to it.
I’m sure that someone has sneaked a few extra days into this week. Which in some ways is a good thing as it feels like I have been here, there and everywhere this week. On the other hand, I just haven’t been feeling 100% so I’ve wished for bedtime to come around quicker more than once. The big milestone this week has been going to look at a local high school for Roo. Not quite sure I’m ready for her to move up to high school next year but I know that she is ready for the next challenge.
Time for this week’s #Little Loves…
Friday once again and I have no idea where this week has gone. With a weekend full of trips into the city for a dragon puppet workshop with Norwich Puppet Theatre. They were awarded almost £5,000 from the Aviva Community Fund for their Voice of a Child work. The children had a fantastic time and we just about managed to dodge the rain showers. Followed by a family get together on Sunday to celebrate Mr. Boo’s birthday. Everything after that is a blur of school runs, food shopping, and cleaning.
Time to share this week’s #LittleLoves…
After an awful week last week I was hoping that this one would be much better. On the whole, my…
The past week has provided me with both highs and lows. If I’m honest the lows have really hit me hard and I’m ready for this week to be over. With me almost writing off our family car after a lorry cut me up on a junction. Thankfully I managed to swerve and smashed it up a curb – resulting in two shredded tyres. So as someone who wears their heart on their sleeve, it has been an emotional week.
Just like that, the final full week of the school summer holidays is over. This summer has passed by all too quickly and I’m not ready for Roo and Tigger to go back to school next week. There is still so much I wanted to achieve with them.
I have absolutely no idea where this week has gone. I’m not sure if it is my inability to keep track of the days at the moment or whether we are just having too much fun to notice the days slipping past -let’s go with that last one!
All of my babies are home! They’ve had a lovely time with Granny and have come home full of stories about their adventures. It is lovely to have Roo and Tigger home though, Piglet especially has missed them. I wish I had filmed her reaction when she woke up on Monday morning to find them home.
