This week has been really lovely. A complete mix throughout and a busy one! If you read last weeks roundup you'll know I was heading off to a wine tasting with some friends. This was great and we had fun, we tried lots of fab wines and perhaps got a little bit tipsy......maybe a little. Typically Alfie woke us up at 6:15am prompt, you can't make this stuff up, all week we've been waking him for school and the one day he can lie he doesn't. We definitely felt a little delicate for a couple of hours! As all parents know it was a case of sucking it up and getting on with it which we did. Adi popped to Suffolk to our rental property to do a few bits and pieces while I looked after the kids, cleaning and tidying ready for our little get together in the evening.
We were hosting a little fireworks family thing on Saturday evening, we did the same thing last year and this was literally just after we'd moved in so it felt like a nice thing to do it again - perhaps we'll make it a little tradition. We had the grandparents round which was lovely. All was going brilliantly, the kids were hyper, they hadn't had any sugar but seemed to be really excited........a little too excited, in what seemed to be slow motion there was a bit of an accident. All I remember was Alfie running towards Elarna and him bear hugging her in a brotherly way and then a sickening thud followed by screams and tears. Honestly, it was manic. So basically Elarna fell backward and hit her head on the tiles, she had a huge egg sized bump and lots of tears but actually was fine (I was on head injury watch for the rest of the night!), Alfie we really weren't sure what happened, he was screaming and screaming and there was bleeding but it took us a while to establish where from and calm him down (thankyou dinosaur sweets!) - it would seem that as they both tumbled he had bitten his tongue and his finger and in Alfie's words 'it hurt lots and was stingy', bless him! Once all these dramatics were over we watched the fireworks that were just over the road and then chilled out for the rest of the evening. It was fab. On Sunday we had a fairly quiet day, we finally decided on our tiles for the en suite, both Adi & I are possibly the most indecisive people ever so to finally make a decision was an achievement, ha!
On Sunday afternoon I took Alfie over to my parents as it was Lenny day!! My Mum and Dad had just picked up their new pup, a gorgeous Blenheim Cavalier King Charles Spaniel, ohhh he is soooo gorgeous, I could've stayed cuddling him all afternoon, I'm so pleased that they've got a new puppy, the house just didn't feel the same without a doggy presence and I think it's good for them to have one - plus who doesn't love a cute puppy cuddle.
The rest of the week has been spent mostly working and feeling a little bit sad that I now only have 2 more shifts at my current surgery! My 3 months notice has gone so quickly, I'm starting to look forward to my new job though and I can't wait to be working nearer home, that is a huge bonus. I think it will be a positive move.
There has also been more sleepless nights this week, I think teething (again), although we've had a brief break it does seem to be rearing it's head again which is sucky, hopefully it will pass us soon - keep your fingers crossed! Teething is the work of the devil.
So this is my weekly roundup, how has your week been?
