Word of the Week – Whirlwind

It’s been a whirlwind of a week, today is the first time I have had time to sit down and do some much needed catching up. I knew September would be a busy month but boy has it been hectic around here and the way my calendar for October is filling up already it looks to be the same again next month.

cool-ideas-on-celebrating-your-13th-birthdayOn Saturday we celebrated our gorgeous niece turning one, my brother and sister-in-law threw a lovely party at their house for her.

Sunday saw me heading off for a full day of fun and learning at Blog On in Manchester, that certainly was a whirlwind of a day but I came away with a head full of ideas for the blog and some new blogging buddies.

On Monday I had a whole weekends worth of housework to catch up as well as some work, this was a slow process as I was absolutely shattered from the busy weekend.

On Tuesday I headed to Chester for a blogger event with Hotter Shoes (more to come about this) it was absolutely fantastic but it meant I had a lot to do during the day, planning an early tea and getting the children sorted for bedtime so we could dash off early to beat the traffic.

Wednesday morning saw us spending some time in Daisy’s class for a parent workshop, it was great seeing what she got up to on an average school day, I even rode a scooter which despite being a little embarrassing was lots of fun. In the afternoon I had to catch up with all the things I hadn’t done on Tuesday night and that morning, Jake decided this was the ideal time to skip his nap which meant he needed entertaining as well then it was a quick tea before heading off to do some shopping.

Thursday is being dedicated to blogging, catching up with emails and planning for October.

School are holding a coffee morning for Macmillan today, so I will be indulging in a little slice of cake and a coffee and raising money for a very worthwhile cause, then it will be home to catch up on the housework I normally do in the morning and waiting for the workmen to come and look at the tile that has lifted on our roof.

I have absolutely no plans for this weekend and that’s how it’s staying, I want to stay in my pyjamas all day and watch movies with the children, I think I’ve earned it.

I’m linking up with Jocelyn from The Reading Residence for Word of the Week.
