Stuff on a Sunday #15

A wet week, here’s what happened: Monday was a lazy day, full of Cbeebies, book reading and cleaning, with a very wet trip to the Midwife for my 28 week appointment in the afternoon. I don’t have a waterproof coat that does up over the bump, so decided in my wisdom to take Athena on my back in the carrier with an Umbrella. Daft idea, she was dry as she was high up but from waist down I was pretty soggy, it turns out she loves to hit the umbrella…

Monday – Finally back in our own King Sized bed after spending the week in a comfy but small double bed at the Mother in Laws, which is no mean feat when your husband is 6’6 tall and I have a baby bump to contend with! We’d got back late the night before so I mostly spent the day unpacking, washing and sorting things out after a week away (including taking the christmas decorations down!) A friend and her daughter came round for lunch, and I had to remind Athena about sharing her toys…

Happy New Year!  I’m currently sat writing this in a reclining chair (comfy) full of a cold that suddenly appeared this afternoon (not so comfy) and trying to remember what we’ve been up to this week! Here goes…     Monday was our first day in Norfolk, having arrived the night before to visit Sams mum in her new house. We headed up the coast to Cromer to enjoy an ice-cream at the end of the pier to celebrate her boyfriends birthday, it was pretty windy and cold though! In…

Ooohh… last ‘Stuff on a Sunday’ post of the year! I left off last Sunday heading to a carol service with Sam & Athena which was lovely but a bit different from last year where Athena slept all the way through! The carols were also a bit naff, I didn’t recognise a couple of them at all, and the dude controlling the words on the projector screen (how modern!) kept going too fast! This week Athena discovered Pringles and (empty) beer bottles! Monday was a midwife appointment (all good, measuring…

  Monday: after three days of being cooped up in the sick house I was determined to get out of the house for a stroll. We popped into town for a couple of errands, and to get Athena’s feet measured. She was not happy about this for some reason, despite having it done three or four times before! It put her in such a bad mood that she has a very undignified and uncommon wailing session as we continued round town… blotchy red face and all. I’d gone into poundland…

This week has been a write off. I didn’t do a Stuff on a Sunday post last week because the Athena had been sick the day before, and still was on Sunday, joined by me on Sunday evening… and i’m still feeling awful now a week later. I’ve never had a sickness bug this long before, and it doesn’t help that we all probably keep passing it back to each other. I genuinely thought we were all better by Thursday, Athena went to Nursery and me to work but it…

Stuff on a Sunday #9 (a day late!)

  Last night the laptop stayed off, I had a nice weekend full of people and friends and family and decided to just chill out when I got home last night, so this Stuff on a Sunday post is a day late, oh well! Last week was pretty much a write off in most ways anyway, I can’t actually remember what happened on Monday, so it can’t have been too thrilling. I started to get a dull toothache on Monday night and when I woke up on Tuesday it wasn’t…

I’m patting myself on the back with these ‘Stuff on a Sunday’ posts, it’s nice to sit and think about the week just gone and have a bit of a visual diary of the week to look back on! This week has been more hectic than most for us, Monday was our second wedding anniversary, and our 20 week scan! Tuesday was a boring work day for me, Sam had his only day off of the week and luckily for him I was at work and Athena was at nursery…

Stuff on a Sunday #7

  I missed last Sundays post because I was away in Milton Keynes, but most of the week before that was spent in Morocco (I will get a post up soon!) so I’m going to skip over that week and focus on this one, which was pretty dull even by my standards. In my defence I was suffering from the post holiday blues! Monday: We had a chilled out day mostly at home apart from a trip to a medical centre one town over for the flu jab, then a…

  Last Sunday was a quick trip to Lancing College for a pretty disappointing craft fayre. It was 90% stuff that I could have made myself like cd clocks and decoupage boxes.  A bit of a let down especially considering they charged an entry fee! It was kind of worth it to see inside this famous and pretty Harry Potter-esque looking school! We also visited the chapel which is huge and towers over the school and can be seen from miles around.   Monday saw us head to a friends…

  This week has been a mixed bag of being tired, being hungry and not getting very much done, oh well! Monday was a lovely day, I had a meeting to do some filming for a potential new TV show (I won’t be in it, I was just helping them with some research, so not as exciting as it could be!) and Athena got a tour of all the offices etc because she kept running in front of the camera and needed to be kept busy! After that met Donna…

  What have I done this week? Why is it always so hard to remember the activities from less than seven days ago by the time Sunday rolls around… Monday – I got wet. Sam had done a night shift after our evening out (read about it here) so Athena and I vacated the house for brunch with friends. However it was absolutely pouring down so we (well, I as Athena was ensconced in her rain cover) got soaked on the way there, and then through town to the post…
