My favourite thing this week was taking the boys swimming. I always forget how much they love it and it makes me so happy to watch them. Persuading them to get out is always rather dramatic, but it’s worth it!
I’ve not taken many pictures this week, so this post is rather bare.
This week I’ve been really trying to get better with the technical side of blogging. It’s a side of blogging I really find difficult and hide from, but it’s necessary. Sian’s blog tips have come in so handy!
On Wednesday night Jared and I headed out to see the final Hunger Games film. Despite it being a little (too) far fetched in parts – I still really enjoyed it.
It’s not really heard, but I’ve loved hearing what all my American friends and family are thankful for over Thanksgiving. I really think the UK needs to start celebrating it – it just sounds so wonderful!
My mum and I had a great time at The Handmade Christmas Fair in Manchester. One of the best things about it was that it wasn’t too busy. There were so many things to look at and it was nice to have the space to see everything. We did lino printing, needle felting and upholstering. I used the sink next to Kirstie Allsopp in the toilets – she was just there doing her make up and I gave her a big smile! I want to share my favourite discoveries soon.
I wrote a tutorial for my DIY brown envelope calendar just in time for next week. There’s still time!
Before I even got pregnant this time around I bought a khaki Isabella Oliver Eldon dress in the sale. I wore it for the first time this week and it is SO comfortable. It makes me look so pregnant though!
This time next week Jared and I will be on our way to Krakow. I feel so emotional that we won’t be taking the kids with us and have cried a few times about it. It was never the plan, but my mum said we were being ridiculous and persuaded us to go alone. Children notice so many things we don’t and I know I’m going to really miss that. Win has made it clear that he has no desire to come with us – at all.
Have a lovely weekend!
