We’re finally starting to get used to our new routine with our days revolving around the school run. It seems like she has only just started and yet we’re only a month away from half term. We’re hoping to go away for at least part of the week, we’re so aware now of how important it is to make the most of the time we all have together.
Work has been busy for me this week but in an enjoyable way. I’ve got some exciting new projects going on that are great fun but not too time consuming. So whilst I could still do with another few hours in the day, I don’t feel under as much pressure to get everything done.
On Sunday, Pinders Circus was in town, so we decided to take the girls. It’s a very traditional circus with a clown, various acrobats, magicians and other performing artists. We all really enjoyed the show, which lasted two hours and kept the girls entertained all the way through. I was disappointed to see that there really weren’t many people in the audience though. So if Pinders come to your area, do go along and support them. It’s a brilliant show.
On Tuesday, I went tea tasting with my sister Alice, and Lia came along too. It was nice to have a day out with Lia on her own, I don’t think I’ve ever done that before. Alice noticed that Lia was much more chatty without Libby to talk for her, and I think it’s a sign of things to come. It was also nice to learn so much more about tea!
Photo of the week
Whilst my Thursday photo is of the girls as usual, it’s not my favourite photo from the week. A few months ago, I worked on a blog post for the RSPCA and they sent me a hamper of dog goodies to say thank you. Among the things they sent us were two dog balls. I didn’t pay much attention to them at the time, as neither dog was particularly interested in playing ball so they went in the drawer.
Recently though, Bubbles has become increasingly interested in playing with a ball. So when I was looking for something in the drawer and put my hand on the ball she’d been sent, I got it out for her to play with. It soon became her favourite toy. And personally, I think it’s the best dog toy I’ve ever seen. It is no longer possible to be unhappy or cross in our house. One look at this face and you can’t help but laugh. Our Thursday Photo #124 was taken after the circus. The girls were both excited from watching such a brilliant show and they were playing together on the grass. Lia kept falling over but she didn’t mind because her big sister was there to help her back up.
I miss seeing this little pair together all the time and they’re missing each other too. We’re making the most of the times when Libby’s not at school and I think it has made us all focus a bit more on enjoying the time we do have together.
