Word of the Week – Busy

This has been the first full week of the Summer holidays for us and although we haven’t been far from home we have certainly packed in lots of fun on top of the usual daily must do life things and appointments so my word of the week is busy.

A cup of tea isan excuse to share great thoughts withgreat minds


Busy to me usually consists of having too much on my to-do list and trying to work through it non stop but busy this week has meant filling our days with lots of fun, the kind of busy I don’t mind being at all.


Monday morning started off with us using up some bananas to bake banana muffins, Daisy gets so hungry in the mornings so I thought these would be the perfect snack.


Our craft boxes have been out every single day, creativity runs free on our kitchen table.


Daisy was quite proud of this birthday cake she built, silly mummy though it was a castle but she soon set me straight.


Jake prefers colouring and drawing to gluing and sticking, he doesn’t like to have messy hands.


We spent some time pampering ourselves, Daisy loves having nail polish on these are special child friendly ones.

On Wednesday we met up with some friends on the park, despite the dark skies and blustery weather we still had lots of fun.


Daisy had her first experience with 3D, we picked up a fun Finding Dory colouring pack from Aldi for just 89p.


We squeezed in some time to watch some of our favourite Disney films.


After my appointment with the dietitian we called at the library, as well as choosing some books we picked up these fantastic freebies. Daisy has an under the sea project to do for her homework so these will be really helpful.


Sadly our busy week ended with Jake rolling Daisy’s bike over his toes, he has quite a deep cut but thankfully he didn’t break anything. We have had to cancel our plans to meet friends on the park today but I’m sure we will can still find lots of fun things to keep us busy at home instead.

How has your week been ? have you been finding fun things to do in the Summer holidays ? leave me a comment below I love hearing from you.

    Ouch – hope he’s on the mend quickly. I guess it may slow you down a little but I’ve a feeling you won’t let that stop you. Hope this week is just as fab #wotw
