It’s Friday again and for once I don’t feel like the week has passed by at lightening speed. I’ve had lots of time to relax and indulge in some little loves. Despite the grey days I’m actually feeling pretty good mentally which I’m sure is the result of keeping my vitamin D topped up with supplements.
Here are my little loves for this week.
I’m still making my way through Before I Go To Sleep which I’m thoroughly enjoying. I’m so glad I didn’t watch the film first as I have no idea how it ends. What has made me really happy this week is watching how much enjoyment Daisy gets out of reading too. This week she asked for one of the chapter books from her top bookshelf. I’ve been storing some books up there for when she is old enough to read them. She chose Alice’s Adventures In Wonderland and has had her nose firmly buried in it ever since.
I also really love how quickly she has mastered reading in her head as opposed to out loud. As we sat and read our own books silently this week I couldn’t help but keep glancing up to watch her read.
We are still busy binge watching Grey’s Anatomy, I absolutely love this show and have definitely been missing out all these years.
I also watched the kids enjoying themselves on the park despite the freezing, frosty morning. They both got a little soggy once the frost started melting so it was hot chocolate all round when we got home.
While Chris has been busy this week, painting and decorating Jake’s bedroom he’s been listening to comedies and audio books on his headphones. I’ve loved hearing him laugh along oblivious that I’m listening. It can’t help but put you in a good mood when you hear someone else laughing.
Jake came out of nursery one afternoon this week proudly clutching a muffin he had made in class. He was so happy with himself and told me all about the mornings activities. After lunch he was eager to gobble it all up, he didn’t quite manage the whole thing but he gave it a good go.
I have nothing to add to this section, I’ve lived in comfy clothes and pyjamas this week.
We have absolutely no plans again this weekend so I’m looking forward to just pottering about. On Sunday morning we will probably venture out, I have a few places in mind for a nice walk, weather permitting of course.
