Stuff on a Sunday – Googly Fruit & School Places

We had a super lazy Easter Sunday and Monday, Sam worked on both days and my mum visited on Sunday bringing balloons and chocolate Lindt Bunnies. I was still feeling pretty run down and rough so perfectly happy to have a quiet weekend, and I think we all needed it after a busy couple of weeks just before! I only had one working day this week because of the Easter school holidays, but both kids were at the childminders for a day on Tuesday so I cracked on with as…

Stuff on a Sunday – Cocktails at Malmaison & #5MinutesPeace

Another week has flown by, the first week of the Easter Holidays for us. We spent last Sunday and Monday in London, spending time with Athena’s Godmother and sunning it up in Regents Park. We also went on a Duck Tour & a stroll round London and both kids actually did really well, considering Athena walked miles and Arlo was stuck in the buggy for a lot of it! Tuesday seems to have been completely erased from mind as I genuinely have no idea what happened but on Wednesday I…

Stuff on a Sunday – Rambles & spring time

A super quick post this week as I have been so busy and still under the weather so I didn’t get my bum in gear to schedule anything so im writing this on my phone on the train to London with the kids. Arlo is asleep on my lap really awkwardly so I’m typing on my phone with 1 hand! Last Sunday we had a family ramble up to Cissbury ring and the surrounding areas, to see the new forest ponies that have been introduced there but I’ll share photos…

Stuff on a Sunday – Arlo is two & time away!

Last week has been pretty lovely, illness aside. We had a little trip away for Arlo’s birthday, he turned two on Friday! Sam had another week off work following his snowboard trip the week before and the kids made the most of having him home a lot! I’ll be writing about each of our days out next week along with a couple of videos too so I’m going to keep this short and sweet and move on to #LittleLoves and just leave a few pictures here…

Stuff on a Sunday – Lone Parenting, Babe & Sheep

I survived a week of lone-parenting, just; it was a close call! I am full of cold, you know the type when even your tongue itches? And your tonsils are swollen… that sort of cold. Both kids have runny noses too, oh and my eyes are super itchy. However we survived, I kept on top of the washing, re painted bits of the kitchen and playroom and even put a blind up in the bathroom. The kids spilt a whole bottle of water over the sofa, and emptied a cheerios…

Stuff on a Sunday – #5MinutesPeace, Bugs & Sun

This past week has been pretty nice, the weather was gorgeous on Wednesday which was one of my two days with the sproggles, we went to the beach and had a play in the park (my feet got buried in sand) and then my mum came over to look after the kids for the afternoon and I took my laptop to the pub and got on with some work! Arlo was sick on Tuesday night though, in the middle of the night he just sat bolt upright and vomited his dinner…

Stuff on a Sunday – Dear Zoo & Delicious

I’ve really got nothing to say about the past week, its only saving grace was Saturday. We had a gorgeous family day out at Amberley Museum (we have season tickets so we go a lot but we really do love it there) and it was so warm that we ate outside for the first time this year! I lost a working day this week due to sickness meaning the childminder had to close her setting, so have been working every evening till quite late. I also covered two extra shifts…

Stuff on a Sunday – Slimming World, Tiredness & Friends

We were back in a normal routine this week after a week away, getting back on Sunday evening, flinging a mountain of clothes in the machine and frantically trying to find lunch boxes and pre-school jumpers! We had spent most of Sunday at our friends house in Norwich before we drove home. They have two children close in age to our two and although they don’t see each other very often they seemed to get on okay after a few teething problems, which is a relief as we’re all off…

Stuff on a Sunday – Norfolk, Family & Friends

At the start of the week I had a lovely little break away with Donna, we both had a massage, a delicious dinner and a really good nights sleep at a lovely hotel called Needham House. The massage I had was the nicest I have ever had, the masseuse never broke contact throughout my back massage at all, she moved around the bed as if by magic and I only knew where she was by peering through the whole to spy where her feet were! I felt truly relaxed, and…

Stuff on a Sunday – Colds, Croup & Working

This week has been non stop. Sam did a couple of ‘AFD’ shifts at work (which in hospitality speak means ‘all f*cking day’ 7am – 11pm) and stayed over too to save time driving home cutting into his sleeping time. That of course meant that I had a week of all bedtimes, which would be fine if both kids went to bed easily, but Arlo doesn’t. It can take him up to two hours to get to sleep, and I normally end up falling asleep at the same time and…

Stuff on a Sunday – More Birthdays and haircuts

I wish I could say this week was jam packed with excitement but I’d be lying if I did so I won’t. It was Sam’s 29th birthday yesterday so that was a nice day, we went out for dinner together in the evening whilst my mum babysat, second time since having Arlo but the first time didn’t count as it as for a works party. We got the train to Hove so neither of us had to drive and had a thoroughly nice time! Earlier in the week I got…

Stuff on a Sunday – Rain & 15 Years

This week has been wet, dreary and dull. There is not one redeeming factor that springs to mind. Not one. It seems like it was a never ending cycle of: tired, work, pre-school run, child minder pick up, make dinner, get annoyed nobody is eating dinner, put Arlo to bed, wait two hours for him to fall asleep, try and work, fall asleep myself. Oh, actually there is one redeeming factor, I got given a bunch of flowers at work (at the hotel, not work from home work, because nobody…
