This week started amazing. The weather was beautiful, it was Star Wars day and my daughter turned 1 year old. Sunday was spent decorating and getting the house ready for her birthday party and of course baking her cake, which took me most of the day
Monday - I don't think we could have asked for better weather for her party. The sun shone and we spent the day out doors. We were surrounded by good friends and family, and although some were unable to make it we still had an amazing day. We had hired a bouncy castle and it was just lovely watching all the children play.
Tuesday - My week started to go a little crazy from here. First my phone broke, a long story but basically if your phone goes in the toilet it no longer functions correctly and a new one needs to be acquired. I had a very busy day at work, picked the girls up from nursery and dropped them straight off from with my Mum as I had physio. I managed to only see the girls for a brief 5 minutes before they went to sleep. This is also the reason why there is no blog post for Tuesday.
Wednesday - Saw another very busy day at work. I finally called it a day at 3am, although I have still a lot to do. I decided to treat the girls and myself on the way home from work and called in to pick up a doughnut. The girls really loved it and it was nice to spend a few hours with them before bed.
Thursday - After a 3 am finish, I had a 6 am wake up call from my eldest. This seems to be happening most days this week. My youngest is unsettled at night too at the moment so sleep is not happening. When my youngest did finally nod off I had to let her have an extra half hour, which made us a little late for nursery but she needed it.
Friday - I was so glad to see Friday. Another very busy and long day at work. I had missed the girls so much this week that I was just looking forward to the weekend so I could spend time with them. After switching off from work, I had 10 minutes to get ready as My husband and I had a night out together. The girls spent the night at their Grandma and Grandads, which they loved. My husband and I spent our night watching Eddie Izzard. I am a huge Eddie Izzard fan and he was utterly amazing, but then I knew he always would be. I really needed the laughter to end a very stressful and busy working week. I laughed so hard I was in tears and my sides hurt. I cannot wait for the DVD in November.
Saturday - The girls and I, along with Grandma, attended a Mile in Memory. I was amazed by the amount of support for a truly worthwhile charity, The lullaby trust. We walked and at the end of the walk blew bubbles.
