Twinkly Tuesday | Featuring Bryony, Perfectly Imperfect Mama


Good Morning! Happy Tuesday. Hope you've all had a good week.  I'm starting this weekend with a little clear out, which feels good for my soul. I do like a good declutter, when I can get round to it! A day of pottering and clearing things has hopefully set me up for the week. 

This week's Tuesday Twinkler is a post from Bryony - Perfectly Imperfect Mama with a post talking about pregnancy and labour as a single parent. Honestly, I'm full of admiration. There are so many routes to becoming a parent, regardless of which we take it is one of the hardest things in the world to do.  Tackling labour and parenting as a single Mum and choosing to do so without a parent wouldn't be for me but Bryony looks as though she's smashing it.  Well done Mama, you have a beautiful family.  Pop over to read the post by clicking the link above.

E having fun on Saturday
We had a birthday party to go to on Saturday which was held in our local park. Not the best idea in the middle of March, it was cold and very windy. But the children all had a great time running around and playing. Afterwards, E went with my brother and sister in law for lunch and ended up going round theirs to play with my niece afterwards.  In the end, what I thought was going to be a couple of hours turned into double that. She had a fab time and it was nice for us to have some one on one time with T.

Lemon Drizzle Cake
Last week was all about the cake. MiL made a cake which everyone, except me, was enjoying. Then, I went into work and for two of the days there were cakes in and as I'm avoiding gluten, I was unable to eat any.  Like a spoilt child, I was more than a little put out! D came home over the weekend with a gluten free lemon drizzle cake that my MiL had made us and it is delicious! 

New to Me Cupboard
My friend messaged me last week with a photo of a cupboard his parents were getting rid of, asking if I wanted it. Yes!  Its a lovely size and its going to fit into our spare room perfectly once its all painted up. 

Birthday Organisation
This week is Ts birthday so last week we finally got the rest of her present ordered. I also ordered her birthday cake, actually I've had to order two to make sure there's enough for all the kids! Next weekend is her party so I'll be sorting out sweet bags this week, thanks to my MiL who has ordered and started organising that for me!  It seems amazing to me that my cheeky little T is going to be 5.

Gratitude Journal #23

Painting Bargains
Its been a good week for new things for me to paint!  I picked up two large wooden mirrors priced at just £5 each and my FiL found me two small plate racks and a large wooden kitchen storage box.  I still have a towel rail to paint, as well as a number of items in storage at work, so I'm hoping I can find the time to crack on with them soon.

Parents Evening
Super proud Mum alert!  We had parents evening for both girls and both teachers were full of praise and had nothing but good things to say abut them.  Phew!  I always think it'll go well and that the girls are well behaved, but I always have the worry!  

Parties
We had two parties this weekend.  Oh what it is to have popular children! Mostly I don't look forward to them as the thought of sitting and making small talk with people I don't know that well, fills me with dread.  But this weekend, both parties went well and were actually quite nice parties to attend. 

New Scooters
Both the girls love their scooters at the moment but they've seen better days. In fact, Ts had broke, so we had planned to buy them new ones for a while.  This weekend we headed to Norwich to the toy superstore and picked them up a new scooter each. Whilst we were there, T also chose her new bike that Nanny and Grandad are buying her for her birthday.  She's almost 5... what a 5 years that has been!

Extra Hours in the Office
Last week my inlaws let me know they could collect the girls from school for me as they were also collecting my niece, which worked out quite nicely for me as it meant I could spend an additional couple of hours in the office and crack on with some work.  I was in the office alone and making the most of it being quieter!
