A little look back over the past week.
Tuesday was Umbrella Day.
I made Nutella milkshakes topped off with little cocktail umbrellas. The milkshakes were disliked unanimously. Oh well, we gave it a go!
S was very excited about Wednesday as it was dress up day at school. I had offered to sew more beads onto the top but she said she was happy with it just the way it was and as it was her costume that was fair enough. I had sewn the skirt of the kaftan to the bottom of the top and to hide the haphazard join we added a belt from a skirt which was in the pile for recycling.
When I went to collect S from school later on that day I noticed a lot of the children hadn't actually dressed up so although it was a challenge to come up with something I'm glad we made the effort and S was pleased with the cobbled together result.
We had no firm plans for the weekend but seeing as it was Valentines Day on Saturday there were a couple of things I had planned but they didn't actually happen in the end.
I felt dreadful all day at work on Friday from a bout of IBS and couldn't wait to get home and sit quietly with a hot water bottle. Unfortunately this feeling lingered on into Saturday and Sunday too.
S and G enjoyed a breakfast of heart shaped crumpets
Before I go I just wanted to say a huge thank you to everyone who left a comment on my last post about T and his website. T was bowled over by the response, thank you all for your support.
