What a week. Its been a strange one. I can’t put my finger on why but I have been feeling pretty meh. There have still been some good bits though. Bits where I have made a bit of time for me to read or done something with Olivia. This week’s post is a pretty short but I still wanted to make sure that I took part in this weeks little loves. Picking out the my favourite bits from the week.
I currently have two books on the go. I used to wonder how people did that. One being Fearne Cotton’s Happy that arrived this week and the other In My House by Alex Hourston.
I’ve not made much of start on Happy so will hopefully have move to say about this week.
With In My House the story seems to be slowly unravelling. Maggie obviously has a big secret that she is hiding but I still have no even the smallest idea of what it could be.
Children’s books wise we were kindly sent a copy of the first in the series of the Pasta Kidz books to review, you can read our full review here. No word of a lie this has fast become one of Olivia’s favourite books. I have lost count of the number of times that I have read it this week. I’m so glad that she seems to have my love of books and I really want to encourage this as she gets older.
Two off our favourite ‘rubbish tv’ programmes made a return this week. Geordie Shore and Ibiza weekender. We watch every series without fail, although I definitely don’t think that Geordie Shore is the same without either Gary Beadle or Charlotte Crosby.
The fantastic news that one of my closest friends has welcomed their rainbow baby into the world. I really couldn’t be happier for them and am just so proud of the strength that they have shown over the last year. I’m going to be stalking their social media for all the baby spam until we are next down in Devon and I get to meet him in the flesh.
This week Olivia and I got our bake on. Paw Patrol and ‘Pony’ cakes were top of Olivia’s list. We did cheat a little with the Paw Patrol ones buying one of the cake making packs but we did make the unicorn ones from scratch.
She was so excited to make cakes and it was nice spending some time with her just the two of us. Unlike when we have previously baked she actually stayed engaged the whole time and didn’t get bored half way through. I think the fact that she kept ‘accidently’ getting the mixture of icing on her hands so had to of course lick it off may have helped.
As always nothing to report here.
We have a date night planned for tonight. A much needed opportunity to be Stacey and Adam rather than mum and dad, a colleague or a boss. I can’t actually remember the last time that we went out just the two of us. It’s defiantly our first time as husband and wife.
