Our Week!

Wow where on earth has the last week gone?! It has flown by. It's been a bit of a mixed bag though, some ups and some downs. Friday was the husbands birthday, Alfie had been waiting to give Daddy his present for days and had been telling Daddy that we'd bought him a green drill......we hadn't. He seemed pleased with the gifts that he did get though. I was on a study day which meant that I could make Alfie's school celebration assembly (and a sneaky pub trip that we squeezed in beforehand) which is the first I've been too - it was sooo cute, even though Alfie didn't receive a certificate this week just seeing how happy the kids were being commended was truly lovely. Once Elarna was home from nursery we all had pizza and birthday cake and Adi went to the pub - all in all a good day. Friday night was not so good. Elarna woke at 8:30pm and then 11pm, we're not really sure why she's waking up so much in the night at the moment but it is utterly exhausting. At 1:30am I was woken by Alfie appearing by the side of the bed all upset and not feeling well, cue lots of cuddles and calpol and then a good 40 minutes of us all him chattering and trying to convince him that he needed to stay in his own bed and not get in ours. He did settle eventually but then at 4am Elarna woke up screaming, honestly I was flipping exhausted on Saturday morning! 

On Saturday afternoon we shipped the kids off to the grandparents as we were having a proper 'out out' evening (well mostly), it has been so long since we had no kids overnight and it did feel very quiet and strange in the house, not going to deny it though it was nice! We went out for dinner with friends at a lovely restaurant and then had a couple of drinks after, although it was 'out out' it wasn't an overly late night, I think I went to bed around 12:30am or something like that. It was just so good to be out the house and dressed up.

Sunday was spent looking for tiles and flooring for the en suite and then collecting the kids and chilling out for the rest of the day. The start of the week brought more illness and unsettled children. Tuesday, Elarna took a nasty tumble and put her tooth right through her lip, lots of blood and a few minutes of screaming but considering her injury she got over it fairly quickly, an ice lolly helped. We then had another incident of her slipping and banging her mouth later in the week - she is such a klutz at the moment bless her. Alfie has had a great week at school, he got fab feedback in his book journal about his reading and came home with a sticker for helping tidy the home corner so I'm pleased that we seem to be ending the week on a positive note. We have half term to look forward to, a little holiday and lots of fun things planned so I'm hoping for a good 7 days. 

This is my week, how has yours been?


  1. Ah glad you had a fab night out! You all looked lovely! Hope the bad sleep was just a one off and Elarna is ok!! X #thatfridaylinky

  2. Aww, bless you all! It's that time of year for illnesses and it truly sucks. I do hope you're all better soon and I hope Elarna's mouth/lip/tooth heals soon, sounds painful, bless her. And well done Alfie.xx #PoCoLo

  5. Ah it's nice to get dressed up and go out isn't it - and tbh I think half past midnight is pretty respectable! Thanks for sharing with #PoCoLo and maybe next year will be the year of the green drill :)
