My Little Snapshots…

My Little Snapshots…

I’ve always loved doing round up posts and have done a few different ones through linky’s etc and I’ve missed writing one each week. I’ve decided that I will do my own round up of the week post and share with you the things that I’ve been loving that week, things that have made me happy and I’m sure they will vary from week to week.

Firstly, can I just say how HOT is it? I can’t actually believe we have this weather in the UK, it feels like I’m abroad. I’m not complaining though, I love the warm weather and parenting is definitely easier, with the exception of sun cream, when the sn is out.

Here is my little snapshot of my week…

Love Island… I don’t know where to begin with this, so much is happening each day, with the recoupling and then the villas coming back together. I’m gripped and everyday I can’t wait for 9pm to see what the latest is. What has happened to my life?

My poor Alice… 30 minutes before Holly was due at Alice’s school for her settling in session, I got a call the school to say that Alice had an accident in the playground and they think she should come home. Cue panic mode for me, as I have Holly to take too. Holly and I headed to the school and to say I was shocked to see Alice’s little face badly grazed and a nasty bump on her head. Thankfully the school were brilliant and Holly was a superstar, she went off with the teacher to her new class a little bit early and didn’t mind at all. I took Alice home and sorted her out, she was so brave bless her. My mum came and sat with her, while I went back to collect Holly and have the school meeting. What a day! It all happens at once doesn’t it?


My Dress… Last weekend we were lucky enough to be invited onboard the Royal Caribbean Independence of the Seas cruise ship and at 7am when I was desperately trying to find something to wear that would be suitable and keep me cool. I found this dress, that I had brought last year and it had stayed in my wardrobe with the tag on! I didn’t know how to wear it, as it has little holes all over it and you can see my underwear very clearly. Then I remembered I had a very long white vest that went long enough to cover everything up and suddenly I had my new favourite dress for the summer.

Friends… On Tuesday I went out with my friend who I met at NCT when I was pregnant with Alice, we got on straight away and it’s really lovely that we have stayed friends. More often now we meet up for dinner just the two of us and sometimes with Holly and her youngest. We sat and chatted and chatted. Saying how good it is to have someone that you can have a good moan to and it really is. I’ll always be grateful for the friends in my life.

This weekend… We’re off to Alton towers for the weekend and we can’t wait. As soon as we pick Alice up from school we will be heading to our hotel. The girls are very excited and it’s going to be lots of fun.

Have a good week everyone and I’ll be back next week with my little snapshots of my week.

    Oh poor thing and poor you what a panic always is the way with parenting it comes and goes for us when we least expect it. Love the dress hunny.

    Oh no poor Alice! I hope she is okay? Sounds like Holly was a superstar, funny how they just take some things totally in their stride. I am the same with two of my NCT friends, really couldn’t do without them both. Hope you’ve had a brilliant weekend xx

    Oh poor Alice and yes everything always seems to happen on the same day when you least want it too. Love the dress, and I must admit I could do with a few more summer dresses, though I know the minute I buy some the sun will disappear. Hope you had a brilliant weekend at Alton Towers x
