Our Week That Was 29

This week was the children's second week of school which I'm pleased to say has gone really well again. They've both come home with new books, Midge is finding her maths okay and they both have attendance certificates again this week which they love getting!

This week I had an email land in my inbox telling me a paragraph I had submitted about being organised on a school run morning had been published in a baby and pregnancy mag! My husband nearly choked when he saw the magazine on the table but I showed him the article and he calmed down! This made me laugh so much bless him. I was really pleased to have my words of advice chosen and promptly bought the magazine after school with the children who were also pleased!

I had another tooth out which happened on Wednesday. I was really nervous so wasn't a very good mummy in the morning. I came home after the surgery (and after popping to a junk store where I found a new book and a cute jumper) to bake some cupcakes for the little ones. It was my 'I'm sorry' and they accepted it much to my relief! I felt a lot better this time around, just a little sore.

I spent some time writing to my pen pals, I wasn't nearly as productive this week as I was last week. It was lovely to be matched up to another pen pal in America and I received my letter from Germany (thank you Bianca!) I've put my new stationery to good use!

It was my blog birthday yesterday (5!!) so I baked myself a cake which was very nice and we all enjoyed a slice.

  1. That's such such fabulous news that you were included in a leading magazine. Sadly Aaron's second week of school he spent 4 days of it off sick. Love that your school does weekly attendance recognition what a lovely idea. I really need to start doing the week that was as it's a lovely diary to look back on and I miss the days when my blog was more of a diary than it's been the last couple of years. I am trying to get my blogging groove on once again but have about 20 reviews I need to knock out first. So so so behind. xxx

    1. I hope you plough through your review list Liska to do this weekly look back as its been lovely to record even if I've been late! Hope A is better now it's no fun when they're poorly xx

  2. Just read your post again. Wow, I missed my anniversary. I would have been 6 this year. I think it is in August, but given I have never ever celebrated it I cannot be positive. But for the first 1-2 years I wasn't that active on it. Congrats on your bloggy birthday honey xx

  3. Happy blog birthday! Looks a busy week, and well done on the mag mention xx

  4. Great news about being in a magazine #famous
    Think of all the memories you are recording for Midge and Little A through your blogging! Such a great thing to do! And the cake looked yummy :-)
    Oh and I think you are really brave regarding the dentist,not a easy thing to do at all xx

    1. Thank you for your lovely comment Jess made me smile x

  5. I just spotted my letter ;-)
    Can't wait to find yours in my mail box.
    Thank you Hannah
