This week at my place...
I went shopping for new clothes for the little growing machine. While there, she requested we also go shoe shopping and I agreed it was a good idea. Especially when I spied these little beauties.
I might have picked up a quick purchase or two for myself as well - those infamous glasses and a new maxi dress.
We had a family dinner at our house to celebrate my brother’s 21st birthday. We all ate lots, drank lots and laughed lots – and embarrassed our brother with funny stories from his childhood.
My brain reached capacity and I spent some time at the office trying to form sentences. And failing. And being laughed at. I’d then text Steve complaining about being exhausted, but got little sympathy as he’s been working nightshifts.
Our fridge failed to cool things adequately. And although I should have noticed this when I baked and didn’t have to soften the butter, I actually noticed when I had a glass of wine. Lukewarm white wine on a hot day is all kinds of wrong.
Abbey learnt a skill that’s highly valued in my family: tongue curling. My mum can’t do this (or click her fingers) and we feared our girl might have inherited this gene. There was a big sigh of relief when we realised we can still keep teasing mum.
I started blogging at Swim Kids, a wonderful initiative between the Royal Life Saving Society and Uncle Toby’s. I’ll be over there once a week for the rest of this year and I’d love you to pop by for a visit if you have a moment!
What's been happening at your place this week?
