This week has been a strange one, I always find it hard to get back into the swing of things after the school holidays. Even though half term was only a week, I love the slowness it brings and I never want it to end.
It’s been back to normal for us all this week and I even managed to get my hair done.
I’ve not done much reading this week. I’ve been feeling a bit under the weather and instead of going to bed to read, I’ve gone straight to sleep. Waking up with an unopened book next to me. I clearly needed the sleep.
I watched The Brit Awards this week. My husband always laughs at me, as most of the time I have no idea who anyone is anymore. Another sign I’m getting old. But I still love to watch it, see what people are wearing and listen to the music.
Silence! After half term last week, it takes a while for me to get used to the silence I get 2 days a week when Holly is at preschool. But I really needed it. I’m definitely a gemini, where I do love the company of other people, the loudness of being out and about. But I also really love the calmness, the silence and being at home.
We made plans for the Easter holidays. As we’re Merlin Ambassadors this year we’re heading to Alton Towers and I can’t wait. We decided to stay at the Enchanted Village and the lodges look really cute. We will go to splash landing and then the following day explore Alton Towers and CBeebiesland. Andy and I haven’t been since we’ve had the girls and we can’t wait to take them. They are going to love it, as are we!
At the start of the winter I brought a new coat and I love it. It’s been the best purchase I’ve made and has kept me warm during these cold months and during my visit to Scotland. But I’ll be honest with you I’m ready to hang it up in the wardrobe now and I really wish spring would hurry up.
This week has been really cold again and I got out my mustard snood, as I was freezing. I do love the pop of colour that it adds to an otherwise plain (but very warm!) coat.
We’ve got a fairly quiet weekend planned. Andy is off to the football on Saturday and the girls and I are going to see my sister in law and niece. Not sure what we’re going to be doing yet, but the girls will have lots of fun I know that much.
I hope you all have a lovely weekend.
