But hasn’t this week been so much better? More sunshine and hardly any rain hoorah! Ok it’s been chilly but I don’t mind that if the sun is shining and I can wrap up warm.
A bit of a cheat here as we have not yet been, but have booked to see the Snowman at Manchester. It is on at the Opera House Manchester, from Wednesday 8 November through to Sunday 12 November 2017. Arghhhh I might just be a tad excited. Especially with the big man not making an official appearance here this year I want to make Christmas as magical and festive as possible.
What better way than starting the festivities off with the snowman? I remember settling down to watch it on Christmas Eve as a child and it still gives me goose bumps to this day.
Its been Joe’s 12th Birthday this week so lots of happy birthdays and celebrating. I have hardly taken any photos but sometimes you just want to be in the moment and put the camera down don’t you? And as you can see I was not that successful getting photos with balloons, the little monkey had them the wrong way round. Wow I can’t believe our baby is 12 I know it’s cliché but where has time gone?
Yes, I am a bit late to the podcast party but have been listening to podcasts all week, to be specific cruise radio podcasts. And forgot how giddy I get about cruising. I now realise just how much we have missed it. I love thinking and talking about all things cruising over on Cruising With Kids. The thing I love about podcasts is you can get on with jobs as you listen, or potter in the kitchen. I love that!
I have just started reading Sweet Little Lies this week after finish the Keeper of Lost Things, which I loved, it was such an easy read. It’s been a struggle to get into Sweet Little Lies, but have read great things about it so will persevere.
Beautiful new underwear from Fantasie, I got to choose a few bit from the new range last week and they are so pretty. I wrote earlier this year that I aimed to buy loads of pretty matching underwear this year. As I had got into the habit of buying separates. It’s a little thing but having matching pretty sets makes me feel so much better. Yes, only I know, but it’s all about feeling good about yourself isn’t it?
A delicious Tuna Pasta Bake this week, its something I never make because I always felt it never felt like a proper meal, but I loved it this week and with sweet potato wedges, roasted carrots and garlic bread it was so tasty. And it makes the perfect easy midweek meal.
And this weekend I am off to London woohoo
It feels like so long since I last visited and have 2 very exciting events. The Next blogging network day, I learnt so much on the last one and had the loveliest time. And BritMums Live, I am in the final of the BIB awards under the Parenting and Lifestyle Category arghhh, the competition is tough with some fab bloggers. But do you know what? I am happy to get into the final. What weekend I CANT WAIT to meet up with lovely friends old and new and learn lots of hints and tips.
Have a great weekend whatever you are up too!
