I started my week with my husband announcing that he had a week off. This came as a surprise to me but I have enjoyed every minute of being with him. Doing things as a family every day is really lovely and we will all miss him when he goes back on Sunday.
Not one for staying in he’s been driving us to the countryside for lovely long walks and taking me to hospital for checkups. Our little one is still very much a surprise to us in that we don’t know which pronoun to use but they delight us and with lots of space in my tummy they've been really active.
I've heard a couple of people say it’s a wonder with my past pregnancy that I've not been put off having another, but I feel really blessed and think the world of my care team who have delighted in having holds of their big sister. The sonographer on Wednesday even likened her to a model and better than her kids.
My crazy toddler has taken to wriggling free from the arms of loved ones whenever she can and is not afraid of dirt as she crawls down the garden path if the door is left open or discovers a few crumbs that she left behind after mealtimes. She’s become quite the little climber too climbing on top of the sofabed in our living room, the television stand and her pushchair so she can get to the computer table!
Our family are keen geocachers having clocked up 10,000 finds and are still going. This week we have been on a couple of geocaching adventures around the woods in our county and our daughter has loved being in her carrier on Daddy’s back. She jumps up and down as if to say “keep moving” to him and has even fallen asleep in it.
The spring NCT sales are back this month and so far I have been to three. Two of which I have volunteered at and another was further afield but having heard good things about it I was keen to have a nosy. I am so pleased I did as I managed to pick up a few items on my little list and was surprised to see that others had not picked up the things I did prior to me entering the building. Brand new Bobux shoes with little rabbits and fairies now cover her feet and she loves her LittleLife ladybird bag.
My daughter and I went to an event called ReFashion held earlier in the month. This year it seemed smaller than usual with fewer charities getting involved, but we did a bit of swishing and came away with a few lovely pieces of clothing. Unfortunately, when I got these home I discovered that a top had a hole at the bottom of it so I searched around for a motif to put in its place. My imagination suggested little white flowers (Daisies) would look great on a black background but in the haberdashery near me the closest I came was Bumblebees so now they adorn my garment.
What has surprised you this week?
