Last week was a lovely week as we had my cousin’s daughter A with us all week as she had broken up for the school holidays. T adores A so he was a happy bunny for the week!

I worked then when I got home Big T made us homemade cottage pie, yummmm!
Tuesday 22nd July, 2014
Little T, A and I all popped into town which meant that we HAD to go to Nandos… again! We should have shares in that place. A loves a Nandos too so she fits in well with Family K! I also did a little bit of summer shopping for T too and bought him some fab Cookie Monster high tops that I’ve had my eye on for a while. They were in the sale too which is always a bonus!
Afterwards we went to my mum and dad’s for a BBQ where my niece and nephew were too. A and I took Daisy onto the nearby playing field for a run with her ball too but it was even too hot for her!
Wednesday 23rd July, 2014
On Wednesday we had a baby and dog play date with my goddaughter Bea and her dad Tom. We went to Garbutts for an early lunch and all piled round to Tom’s house afterwards. It was bloody boiling and I managed to get burnt – worrying that T was well covered up I forgot to put any cream on myself. What a knob! Daisy and her pal Noah enjoyed each other’s company too but they preferred the nice, cool indoors!
When I took A home in the afternoon when her mum got home from work, T had a litte trampoline and mini horse play afternoon in A’s back garden. All in all, Wednesday was a very outdoorsy day, with lots of animals – as usual!
Thursday 24th July, 2014
I worked, bleeeeuuurrrgh. When I got home T was at my mum and dad’s. My dad is convinced he’s a pirate…
Friday 25th July, 2014
On Friday morning Big T, my mum, Little T, A and I all went swimming. A is a member of David Lloyd too so that’s always handy! We used the outdoor pool for the first time this year and it was loooovely. We could’ve been in Spain! It was much needed in weather like this. T absolutely loved it, I’ll definitely be making more use of it this summer.
Afterwards we popped to the toy shop, which was a first for T. I don’t think we’ve ever actually taken him to a toy specific shop before (I know, bad mum) so he was in his element. His little face on the cars was a picture! He also loves saying the word “tractor” these days so actually being able to have a go on a mini one was a dream for T!
In the afternoon I cut my finger chopping up fruit for T. Ouch!!
Saturday 26th July 2014
Instead of my usual day shift, I worked the night shift. Big T had worked on Friday night so we looked after T is shifts! I did the morning whilst Big T slept then I went off for some sleep in the afternoon. Night shifts, although good money, don’t half bugger up my system these days!
Sunday 27th July, 2014
I slept for an hour or so after work then gave my best friend a ring as I had a missed call from her on Saturday night. She told me she had got ENGAGED!! Yippee! This photo was taken at my wedding, now it’s their turn, congratulations Amy and Dave!!
I could’ve easily slept all day but I needed to sleep on the night ready to start work again at 7am on Monday morning. The joys of shift work, eh? We went shopping in the afternoon as I said I would make tea for my parents and brother. I made a huge fresh salad with halloumi, bacon and chicken. I’m doing so well getting used to eating salad as I’ve found ways to make it less dull. I just need to curb my pizza eating now!
Another lovely week. I’m loving writing down our weeks as it makes me realise how lucky I am to have plenty of days off with Little T. I moan about going to work but as I can work long shifts, I have it good really. Also, considering we don’t have a garden we don’t do that bad either do we? We just steal gatecrash else’s!
