Can you believe that we are a full week into the new year already?If this week is anything to go by, 2016 is going to fly past! Harrison went back to school on Tuesday, and although it has been nice getting back into a routine, I miss the lazy mornings and later movie nights that we had almost ever day in the holidays!
This is the first time I am joining in with Little Loves on Coffee Work Sleep Repeat. The idea of this is to think about the little things that I have loved this week. On with this weeks….
I haven’t read a book in such a long time, other than with Harrison, but this week I have read lots of blog posts. One that has really stood out to me is this beautiful one by Mama Mim. I am determined this year to read more books – I love reading but never seem to have the time to pick up a book these days!
I’ve watched so many films over the past couple of weeks. I’ve finally watched all the Die Hard films in order, and the other night Graham and I sat and watched a film that my dad recommended to us, called Kingsman: The Secret Service. It’s not a film that I would have normally chosen to watch but it was really, really funny. I also watched The Theory of Everything again – I’m a huge fan of Eddie Redmayne and I think it is a beautiful film.
This week Ben has really started to utter a few words. He now tells me ‘more’ when he wants more food on his spoon, and says hello to just about everything. I’ve also been listening to ‘Lay It All On Me’ by Rudimental and Ed Sheehan a lot – I love it!!!
Nothing particularly special for me – my usual ‘mummy uniform’ of leggings and long tops!! Harrison and Alex are pretty much living in their superhero costumes that they had for Christmas, and I am loving Benjamin in this little white and navy striped top from Gap that my nan bought him – as soon as it is washed it is back on, and has managed to stay white (so far!).
On the weekend I was watching some old episodes of The Great British Bake Off, and of course wanted cake!! I’m crap at baking and hadn’t really got the stuff in the house to make one – until I remembered that just before Christmas I bought some chocolate brownie mix from Tesco. It was the stuff that you literally add 60ml of water, mix and whack it in the oven. It wasn’t the prettiest cake in the world, but boy, did it taste good!
Benjamin has turned into a proper little toddler this week. He has pretty much stopped crawling and is toddling round relatively confidently. He’s mostly feeding himself and has learn what makes us laugh – he loves hiding his head under a blanket and saying ‘BOO!’. However, with this has come the toddler tantrums and sulks, which I have to admit are pretty damn cute at times!
How was your week?
