The Week That Was Captured #32

Hello! I haven't forgotten my corner of the web. I've just had a lot to do in the 'real' world and haven't had the time to share it as much as I would like.

I've missed posting, and have ideas and new things I want to write about and share with you every day, but unless I can get my hands on one of those time turner things from Harry Potter, I just don't know how to fit it all in.

Go to work. Take care of Ethan. Spend a moment or two with my husband. Pay bills. Run errands. Do the food shopping. Tidy the house (rarely get to the cleaning part). Talk to friends. Make plans.

Write my blog.

The important thing for me at the moment is balance and not putting too much pressure on myself to do it all, all of the time. Sometimes something takes more of a back seat. Has to. And that's ok. Everything will get done in the end. If you want it to.

You can always find a bit of time for the things you want.

So, here I am. Writing. Because I want to.

Late but never mind, my week that was captured #32, last week, the last week of August, involved the following bits and bobs...

I've been working on a big launch for a client at work, so had to get a bit creative this week. I went to London and for a change, I got to take in the sights - namely Big Ben, St Paul's and Tower Bridge - because, quite literally, I had them in the palm of my hand.

You can read more about this here and here and it seems I could have a new career... as a hand model!

I then visited my parents for the weekend. Ethan was on fine form and we just had the best time together, just us two as Stephen had to stay home to look after our dog, Watson. Ethan was affectionate, chatty and full of energy and I really enjoyed the quality time with him, as did my Dad and my Mum too.

On Saturday, we went to a local airfield where plane enthusiasts take up small planes and gliders. Ethan was beyond excited to watch the 'apperlanes!' soar up into the sky and back down again.

He ran here, there and everywhere, pointing wildly at the sky.

We then had a nice lunch at a garden centre before my Dad took him for a few rides on his scooter. Which is now called Ethan's bike, because he loved it so much.

I then made everyone watch The X Factor on Saturday night. It's a must for me. Judge all you want, it's the simple things that make me happy!

On Sunday, we went to see my Mum and enjoyed a pub lunch and a long overdue catch up. It was nice.

We arrived home tired but happy to a big hug from Hubs.

  1. It is so hard to juggle everything isn't it! I have found it hard over the summer with the kiddies about and trying to blog as often as I usually do. However the break has been nice but I am raring to get back into a routine next week. Thank you for linking up these lovely pictures to #TWTWC x
