Our Thursday Photo #80

I’m not one for starting Christmas early. But somehow, I’ve been swept away with the spirit of things this week and I’m starting to feel a bit festive. On Tuesday, we went to Webbs Garden Centre for their ice rink and Santa’s grotto. Yesterday I took part in the bloggers Christmas shopping challenge at Old Market Shopping Centre, Hereford and we saw them switch on the Christmas lights. So against my better judgement, I’m thinking about Christmas trees already. I’ve even started a Christmas Pinterest board for inspiration. I love the look and smell of a real Christmas tree but I don’t think…

18 months ago almost to the day, I decided it would be great to launch a series on my blog called Our Thursday Photo. I thought it was a lovely idea to photograph both girls together every week. Lovely to look back on, I thought. Great opportunity to make sure I get loads of photos of both girls together I said to myself. Let me tell you now, I was a fool. The first few weeks were easy. In fact, several months passed before I started to realise that this wasn’t such a great idea. It wasn’t until Lia started walking…

Things are definitely getting a little easier here. I’m still struggling to find the time to do anything but somehow it just doesn’t seem quite so difficult. Perhaps that’s because we’ve had a few really nice days since last Thursday. The first was the fireworks at Drayton Manor last Friday. Sad though it was that my husband couldn’t come, it was lovely to see my friend and we all had a fabulous afternoon and evening. The fireworks were truly spectacular. Libby is back at nursery now that half term is over and she’s got straight back into the swing of things…

Things are slowly starting to get a little bit better around here. I mistakenly thought that I’d have a bit more time once my husband came home from hospital. That hasn’t really been the case but with half term thrown into the mix I suppose I shouldn’t be surprised. We’ve had one of those weeks where we just haven’t done much. We didn’t have a car for two days because it was in the garage. We ended up spending a lot of time at home making a mess and not getting much done. We did manage to get involved in…

Things are slowly starting to improve here – my husband is finally home. He came home on Saturday and we’re slowly finding ways to make things work. Libby spends a bit of time with her dad in the afternoons to do some work on her numbers and letters. He also reads a story to each of them before bedtime so he is managing to be involved in looking after them in a small way. I have to admit I haven’t had the best week ever. We thought hubby would be home on Friday so I spent a good while on…
