Happy Days, My Weekly Roundup

I am going to add a few things to my Happy Days post and change it into a weekly roundup of my week, I am going to include the odd new product discovery on here too, just the little things I discover along the way.

This week has been my first week back at work after the Easter Holidays. And as I sit here on Friday night it’s a week I am glad is over. At home it has been a busy week, getting back into a routine again after the holidays.

Out and About

Joe and I went to the Gadget Show Live on Sunday and had a fantastic day, a lovely mother and son-bonding day, which was also a great experience. We are a real tekkie household to this was right up our street. But I will post more about our day next week.

Fun at Home

That’s the thing I hate about the first week back at work, its like a whirlwind and you feel like you don’t spend any time at home. Although Jack and I have been experimenting with a little lens I got at the gadget show so I suppose that counts.

Time For Me

This has been thin on the ground this week, I have had time to get all my blogging done, but feel I need to start planning in advance and getting a little more scheduled. I occasionally manage it but not often.

My Happiest Moment

This has to be when I collected Jack from his skiing trip; he had such a wonderful time. And came back with a sense of triumph that he had managed his diabetes alone for a week. And is apparently a pro skier, although he did win an award for the student that had the closest brush with the icy hand of death. Hmmm, thank goodness I didn’t find that out until he got home, but apparently he got attached to a ski lift and dragged up a slope.

I am sure the award is tongue in cheek and the incident wasn’t quite a serious at the award suggests. But he seemed unaffected by the whole thing. That is the great thing about our boys nothing really phases them.

This Week I Loved

My new iPhone lenses, I am going to write a little more bout these at a later date but basically these lenses magnetically click onto your iPhone and come in macro, wide-angle, zoom and fish eye. I have got the macro and wide-angle so far and love them. They are so simple to use. I am hoping to get the zoom lens then I can complete a full review, but so far I love it.

IMG_6924Next Week I Would Like Too

We are off out for lunch and a movie tomorrow, not something we usually get time to do, so I am looking forward to that. I also need to book my Miami Hotel, we keep changing our mind but I think we have finally settled on the Trump Towers Miami. It is so beautiful and looks like an amazing place to chill after the Disney madness, with all those pools and the beach location. I need to sort that this week.

    Oh my, that hotel looks amazing! I’m another one who needs to start scheduling posts but it’s easier said than done to find the time.

    Well done to your son for managing his diabetes on holiday….and his award 😉

    Dragged up the slope??? Oh my word I think I would have fainted at the sound of that! Thank goodness he is ok and had such a great time. Must be so good for him and for you knowing he can manage everything on his own. Thanks for joining in with #HappyDaysLinky xx

    I must admit I giggled at ‘Trump Towers’ – very immature of me. It looks incredible though and I can see why you picked it! 🙂

    Your iPhone lenses look really cool – bet my OH would enjoy messing about with those. 🙂 I’m glad you had fun at the gadget show.

    I’ve tried being more organised with blogging too but after a week or so it all goes to pot!

    Thanks for joining our #HappyDaysLinky

    Wow that hotel looks amazing 🙂 and I would love to hear more about the lenses, as it would save carrying a big camera around everywhere – not really practical in softly!! lol xx #HappyDays

    That hotel looks totally amazing. I definitely have holiday envy. You must be so proud of how Jack managed on his skiing trip? Even if he did have a brush with death. I am sure thst being dragged down the slope by a ski lift is perfectly safe!!! Hugs Mrs H xxxx
