I’ve been taking a bit of a blog break recently and I’ve been enjoying it so much that I’ve decided to focus LLL on Family K more than anything in the future. Documenting little snapshots of our lives week by week means we won’t forget what we’ve been up to and there’s no more pressure on our precious time. I will be blogging when I want to blog, on my terms – the way I always wanted it to be.
So, other than deciding on what I’m going to do with LLL in the long run, here’s what Family K have been up to this week…
Monday 9th June, 2014
I worked. It was probably the busiest day I’ve ever had at work in the six years I’ve worked in my job. I came home feeling like I’d ran a marathon… Talk about aching like a bastard!
Tuesday 10th June, 2014
Little T and I went into town to do a bit of shopping. I needed a couple of new bras but when you’re a 38H this is easier said than done. We also enjoyed a Nandos – our favourite mama and Little T date! We then popped to see my big bro on our way home. T adores his Uncle Lee!
Wednesday 11th June, 2014
First thing we went to view a house that we’ve had our eyes on. It was our dream house but not in the right area. I’m a bit of a sentimental bugger and want Little T to grow up in the area his mama grew up in. I couldn’t imagine it any other way so the house, even though beautiful (with a HUGE garden and a playroom!!) wasn’t for us. After the viewing, and feeling slightly relieved that the house I thought I’d fallen in love with wasn’t the one, we plodded off to Little T’s fab “My Baby Can Dance” class. He loves it so much and so do we, it’s by far mine and Big T’s favourite out of all the baby classes we’ve been to. Especially dancing along to “Shake a Tail Feather” with shakey eggs and bells, it reminds me of our wedding where we had a Blues Brothers band!
We then had Pie for lunch whilst T napped and we spent the afternoon doing bits and bobs like going to B&Q where Little T pulled a can of paint off a shelf, exploding ALL over the floor. Oops. Toddlers are FUN!
Thursday 12th June, 2014
I worked again but left early as it’s Big T’s mum’s birthday week. She was over here from Wakefield to look after Little T so after playing with T and my nephew for a bit at my parents house, we went out to the lovely Italian place in our village for tea. Little T and I shared lasagne and garlic, tomato and pest bread. It’s T’s favourite meal! So much so that every time we pass the restaurant these days he shouts “in there!” and cries if we walk by. Definitely his mother’s son…
Friday 13th June, 2014
It wasn’t an unlucky day for us. We had our house valued in the morning which we came up trumps with. We were pleasantly surprised by the sum so it sounds promising for us. In the afternoon we went to view a house in our village too that is exactly where we want to be and is perfect for us so fingers crossed…!
Saturday 14th June, 2014
I worked but popped to see Little T at my parents’ on my break. I’m very lucky to work not far from home. When I got home T was already in bed and Big T had cooked my tea – sausage, mash, peas and Yorkshire pud. He’s a keeper!
Sunday 15th June, 2014 – FATHER’S DAY
We all got up early to take Little T to his swimming lesson (regardless of Big T’s stinking hangover from watching the football!) His lesson used to be on Saturday so Big T used to take him but now we can all go together as it’s both of our’s day off. T is so confident in the water, it’s lovely to see. After swimming my best friend and her boyfriend popped round to see us. We don’t see them often as they live way over the other side of Yorkshire but T was having his nap so he missed out on seeing his Auntie Amy. Then we got ready to go for lunch with my parents, brother and cousin’s family at the Triton Inn in Brantingham, East Yorkshire. I’ve always heard good things about this pub but what I didn’t realise was that, although it’s quite posh, it’s a dog friendly pub! I was gutted seeing other dogs sitting at the dinner tables, Daisy would’ve loved it! There’s always a next time… After our lunch my dad went to see his dad and my mum, Big and Little T, my cousin’s daughter A and I all took Daisy for a walk on Beverley Westwood. Little T picked me some buttercups, it was lovely!!
All in all it was a very nice week, let’s just hope the house that we’ve seen is meant to be for us. Cross your fingers and toes!
