Our Week : 21st-29th June 2014

Linking up with Hannah's 'The Week That Was Captured', here's a look at my week:

This week has been a big week for me as we've decided to start E at pre-school. She starts in the Autumn and this week her taster sessions and start date were confirmed. I have mixed emotions - I'm excited for her as she loves being around other kids and needs more stimulation and activity but I'm also anxious as she's so little! I was very badly bullied in school and I always felt like the odd one out and as much as I try not to project those worries to her, I worry that this will be E. Mostly I feel confident it won't be, but I still have these niggling worries.

Saturday - We took E to the kids play barn (1). The first 2 or 3 times we took her, she was very unsure about the other children and the toys (I say unsure..... she cried!) but now she loves it and its a great way to wear her out!  We then went to Pizza Express for lunch and had a quick mooch around town. T was extremely unsettled so we didn't stay out for too long.

Sunday - Oh Sunday, how I loved you! I had a couple of hours to myself which were very much needed. Its amazing how much you can get done when you set your mind to it! I wrote out some cards, wrapped some gifts, drafted a couple of posts and wrote out some 'to do' lists which are slowly being ticked off.

After speaking to my Stepmum (a midwife), we decided to try T on Colief to see if it eased any of her wind and crying and we noticed an immediate effect - it was like having a different baby! No crying for hours on end, just smiling and content!  

Monday - We took D to work in the morning and went to Sainsburys after where E and I had breakfast  (2) and then did some shopping. Both E and T fell asleep on the way home (3) ... and promptly woke as I tried to move them without waking them!

Despite the weather being fairly grey and miserable (4), in the afternoon we went for a walk in the village, along the river (5 & 6) but we had to cut it short as it was too muggy for my liking and there was thunder in the distance. Luckily we made it home before the rain (guess who forgot to take the raincover?).

Tuesday - I attempted a toddler group. As a general rule, I find these pretty hellish as I'm not a fan of big groups of people and I find it really quite difficult to talk to people I don't know. That said, this group is quite nice and the people are friendly. E has had a cold, combined with teething and decided she wanted to go so we didn't stay for the full session. 

Wednesday - D took the car to work so we had a lazy day at home.

Thursday - T stayed with Nanny and Grandad whilst I took E to another toddler group. We made progress this week as she finally decided she would like to play in the sand pit - its taken me ages to persuade her! And of course, once she decided she liked it that was all she wanted to do! 

Friday - Another quiet day, although we did pop in to town to collect T's prescription. I normally try to avoid our local town on a Friday as its market day and hellish to get parked. Friday was no exception!

Saturday - Hairdressers and food shopping. Nothing too exciting to report!

Hope you all had a great week!
