I always think my weeks are quiet, but when I look at my 365 we do quite a few activities. Well, when I say “we”, I mean the kids.
Preparations for Christmas are well under way at work, so its definitely keeping me busy and Isaac is busy at school with his mock GCSE exams. Some are “easy” and others are more challenging.
Here is our week:
Sunday 12th November
Isaac and Eliza both joined a musical theatre group this year and today was their first show. I volunteered to chaperone the kids, so go to see all the inner workings of the show and watch the rehersals.
It was brilliant and Isaac and Eliza performed songs from Mean Girls, Jekyll and Hide and Sister Act.
Monday 13th November
I mentioned that last week that the Christmas reviews had started to role in and today we reviewed the Number Blocks play set from Learning Resources.
Lilah really enjoyed playing with it, but was unhappy that it only came with the number “3” – you have to buy the other numbers seperately.
Tuesday 14th November
It is too early to put Christmas decorations up, but we have tried some new lights in our dining room window, which Lilah loves.
I need to figure out how to hide the wires now.
Wednesday 15th November
Do you remember the Chewbacca mask that went viral on social media a few years ago? Well, Eliza found it in a dressing up box and is going to wear it for her performance as the Beast in a couple of weeks.
They have all had fun racing around the house with it on, although Lilah doesn’t like it!!
Thursday 16th November
I took my Mum shopping today and we enjoyed a wander around Dorchester. Mum bought some new clothes and I took advantage of the buy one get one half price in Hotter, buying some new boots.
I almost let this Venus Fly Trap toy from the John Lewis Christmas ad to fall into my basket, but I just resisted! He is cute though.
Sebby has only been back swimming a few weeks and is already back in the swing of it. I don’t think he will be a club swimmer like Isaac and Eliza was, but its nice to see him building confidence in the water again………..the diving still needs some work though.
Friday 17th November
A busy day at work for me and then an evening playing Mum’s taxi.
This fox was not bothered by the comings and goings from our house and happily just stood there watching everything that was going on.
Saturday 18th November
Today was Isaac and Eliza’s volunteer day on Brownsea Island. The weather wasn’t great and it was touch and go as to whether the boat would run, but thankfully they made it across safely, even if it was a bit of a bumpy ride.
How was your week?
