Now, I know my idea of busy is probably far fetched from a lot of other’s idea of busy, but I think this word suits my week.
We had a day out at Bletchley Park, which I’ll post about soon, and it was really busy and fun day. It was a fairly long drive, around 70 miles , so it’s a good job hubby enjoys driving. Luckily we found it straight away without getting lost which is a bonus.
We have had fun with some half term activities like painting, crafting and making slime (Which didn’t work again!)
I have sorted the girl’s clothes and removed everything that no longer fits. There is only two years between my girls but Star is in clothing two years above her age and Boo is in the right size for her age. It’s a shame but there are very few hand me downs, I’m not storing clothes for four years!
I have deep cleaned my kitchen. I spent over and hour and a half cleaning all the places that usually make do with a quick wipe. It was hard work but very satisfying.
I have done so much washing this week it’s unbelievable, I thought that with the kids off school there would be less, but it just keeps piling up!
We managed a trip to Hobby Craft where I bought some more supplies (lots of wool and patterns!)
I have even done a fair bit of crochet. I made hubby a new hat, which I may have done a little too big for a beanie so I’ll be keeping it as a slouch beanie, haha, well I have learnt a lesson! I’ve also discovered bliss is listening to a good book on Audible while crocheting, it’s my new favourite thing to do.
I’m planning a busy weekend too… okay, maybe a trip out for lunch and a big pile of ironing!
How’s your week been?
Sounds like a very busy and productive week! It must be a little frustrating not being able to do hand-me-downs. I’m lucky in that I can currently pass Jessica’s clothes straight to Sophie although I suspect they may end up in the same size at some point and the hand-me-down situation may then end up reversing! Love the sound of crocheting while listening to a good book – that does sound very relaxing 🙂 #WotW
Your kind of busy sounds good. Lots ticked off your to do list at least. Looking forward to Bletchley Park trip. One on my list. I can imagine crocheting and podcasts work well together. I should give it a go. Have a good week. #wotw
wow, you have been busy this week but sounds like fun. I am impressed with how much you have got in X #wotw
It sounds like you have had a great half term….
Ahh. It must be very frustrating not to share clothes between your girls. There’s 5 years between my girls but up until recently Becky my teen was small for her age and the girls shared tops….Now she’s suddenly grown and I don’t think they will be much more sharing and not passing anything down for a while….
You have been busy. You seem to have done more in your half term than we did. hehehe x
You sound very busy! A great mix of being productive and having fun, sounds like the perfect half term to me! Thanks for sharing with #WotW x
Wow, you’ve packed in loads this half-term Anne go you ! I bet you will be glad of the rest next week when school starts again. I’ve just got a 3 month free trial of Audiable, hubby has pinched the first go but I’m planning what to listen to next month. I’ve spent the whole of today deep cleaning and sorting, feels so good doesn’t it. Hope you are having a lovely weekend x
It sounds like you have had a very productive week! There is nothing like a deep clean to feel like you have achieved something great with your day. I will have to try audio books for when I crochet, I am not sure if I will be able to focus on them both at the same time #wotw
That really sounds like a busy and productive week to me! And reminded me that I need to purge my son’s clothes again. He is small so we get a lot of hand me downs from friends & his classmates. I need to get rid of the ones that doesnt fit him anymore. #wotw
Certainly sounds like a busy week to me, Anne – hopefully this new one is a little slower! #WotW
It sounds like a busy but productive week. You have done everything that has been on my to do list for ages. If ever your bored lol #WotW
