The week that was #17

All work and no play makes for quite a quick and not the most interesting weekly update post this week. I've been so busy with so many things that I've not really tried anything new, been anywhere particularly exciting or even taken that many photos.

But, in a nutshell, key points from the past week include...

Ethan has been an absolute star throughout his chickenpox, which started the day after his second birthday (I'll be sharing a few tips on surviving the pox soon), and by Thursday last week, he was back at nursery and all his spots have almost completely faded away.

We've been having a lot of fun at bedtime and I've tried to make up for all the work I've been doing in the evenings where possible. Ethan's in a new phase where Mummy is his first choice and I've been taking advantage of all the cuddles and attention he's been giving me.

I won a past season Cath Kidston dress on eBay, in her safari print, which made me very happy and it's one that Ethan likes a lot too. I've also been drooling over the preview of their new season prints for Autumn / Winter - I'll no doubt share my top picks soon.

On Saturday, Ethan and I went to The Baby Show at the NEC. I went solo last year and had a good time and together we had a nice day out and got to see the lovely people at Arla Big Milk (Ethan polished off his milk in seconds), Tommee Tippee (we've got some fab new cups for Ethan to use) and Aldi too (who had invited me along to the show - see my preview post here).

On Sunday, I had to leave my boys after lunch to head to London for a work event. It's been something I've been building up to for a while and it's a mixture of excitement and exhaustion now the event has rolled around.

I'm looking forward to the Bank Holiday, as we're off to Cbeebies Land at Alton Towers, and then looking ahead to a week off at the end June / start July so just need to hang on for a few more weeks before having a proper, much needed break.

Whatever you're doing this week, have a good one!
