Wow it’s been a manic and busy week and I’ve barely had a chance to catch my breath. I’ve had a lot of fun though, was the week really only seven days long? It feels so much longer which is unusual for a week’s half term. I sigh a big sigh that the children are back to school tomorrow, already. I believe that all half terms should be two weeks, much better for the children although I know for working parents it would make life much tougher. Thanks to my parents I have had two breaks this week, the little ones stayed with them for a few days, although I missed them so much. The break gave me the opportunity to do a couple of huge jobs that I’ve been putting off for so long now, there is always a sense of achievement when it’s over though.
We had a day out in London where the girls and Little M got to decorate cupcakes at Fortnum and Mason and the boys went to the Bank of England museum, they didn’t slip any gold bars into their pockets even though I requested some and then they went onto Sir John Soane’s museum.
I finished the week off by going on the London Eye for the first time, I was so surprised that it didn’t feel as high as I had feared. The sun came out just in time so the views were amazing. I am so glad I went as it is something that I have always feared a little. I spent the rest of the day walking around London, making the most of my child free time. I love London and just marvel at the hustle and bustle well into the night, I know the grass is always greener on the other side but I love the buildings, I love the noise, the people, even the light pollution and food at all hours…maybe one day I’ll swap cows, sheep, grass and rural life for the City.
The highlight of my week was attending Save The Children’s ‘Born To’ blogging conference. I feel inspired, sad, helpless and also useful all rolled into one. It was a very moving day which I will write about separately but in the meantime it doesn’t take a minute to click onto their site to see exactly how we can all help.
Have a great week!
