It’s been a funny couple of weeks in the run up to the end of the term. Both kids tag teamed a bad dose of tonsillitis, with M having a full week off school and G having most of the following week.
My fridge now pretty much contains more bottles of penicillin than it does food, and we have had some rather epic battles trying to administer it to G, but they are both back to full health now… just in time for the summer holidays.
Here’s my Little Loves for this week:
My favourite blog post this week comes from Morgana. Her post “The Juggle is Real….” about finding that all elusive work/life balance over the coming weeks of the summer ‘break’ was just what I needed to read earlier this week when I was having a mini meltdown about how I didn’t know how I will manage to juggle the kids, my business and this blog.
Game of Thrones – and as we weren’t planning on watching it until Tuesday night (we watch Twin Peaks on Monday) I was amazed that I managed to avoid any spoilers on social media. I won’t give anything away, just in case you haven’t seen it yet.
I bought this Bardot jumper from Sainsbury’s the other day, which is a bit like a hug in jumper form. I really need to head into Norwich soon and buy some clothes in a shop that doesn’t also double as a supermarket!
… a sound like an eider duck yesterday when I found out that I am ranked at 20 on the HIBS100 this month. I’m genuinely gobsmacked by the score, and I am fully expecting it to drop, but it was a lovely surprise to wake up to.
I know people say rankings shouldn’t matter but having struggled with a creative block recently, and panicking about how I’m going to fit everything in over the next couple of months, seeing this yesterday morning gave me a much welcomed, and much-needed positivity boost.
I’m finding that I’ve been playing The System Only Dreams in Total Darkness by The National quite a bit over the last week. I wasn’t all that taken by it when I first heard it but it’s one of those tracks that sort of creeps up on you.
It was the end of an era this week as G left nursery for the last time, and to say I was a little emotional about it would be a bit of an understatement. As of September, they will both be in primary school and I will have an extra two and a half days a week to use for work, which I am super excited about as it will hopefully mean that I can organise my time a bit better. Well, that’s the plan, anyway! 😉
