This week I’ve been trying to get organised. I’ve had a lot of work on and we’re also going away once we pick the girls up from school today. Which means today will be spent packing and getting us all ready. The school day is so short, its time to pick them up before I know it.
I’m also trying to get ahead with work, as I want to take a couple of weeks of for Christmas.
Here is my little snapshot of this week…
Coffee with a Friend… Last Friday a friend came over for coffee before we went to pick our girls up at school. I’m really lucky to have some lovely friends that I met through school and whilst we may see each other at pick up. Its nice to take the time for a coffee and a proper catch up.
Getting the House Organised… At the weekend, I tackled the spare room. It is a dumping place and it had got out of hand. Once I got started it didn’t take long and it feels good to have it done. Now we just need to keep on top of it.
A Surprise Birthday Afternoon Tea … My mum has a special birthday next week and on Sunday my SIL and I planned a surprise afternoon tea for her, with her friends and family. It was not easy to plan, but it was SO worth it. Mum loved it and it was a really lovely afternoon and the food was yummy.
Adding the finishing touch … If you’re a regular reader you will remember a few weeks ago, I had to send back some furniture after months of hassle. This left a blank wall and I ordered a macrame, from a lovely Instagram seller called The Copper Rotter and it arrived at the weekend and I’m so pleased with it. It’s really finished off this little area.
I’m A Celebrity … Anyone else watching I’m a celeb? We watch it every year and so far I’m loving it. I think Holly is doing a great job, she was the only choice really, as her and Dec are already friends and have that banter. I’m hoping they stop being so nice, and the arguments start soon. That’s the contestants, not Holly and Dec 🙂
This weekend… We’re off to Centre Parcs for my Mum’s birthday and we are all SO excited. The last time my whole family went away was 4 years ago and Holly, doesn’t remember it (she was only 9 months old!). Its going to be so magical with the Winter Wonderland.
I hope you all have a brilliant weekend.
