Isla Jean, Living Arrows

Living Arrows 40/52

I think this Living Arrows post might be kept short and sweet this week, as I’m feeling pretty rotten, and a cold-induced brain fog means that forming any sort of coherent sentences is proving quite difficult, so without further ado, here’s this weeks Living Arrows

I was going to say we’ve had a fairly chilled out week this last week, but actually thinking about it I don’t think we have!

Monday – At my parent’s still after BlogOn Xmas and then travelling home

Tuesday – Recovering from my killer headache, and then we had an impromptu, but lovely, visit from some friends and ended going out for dinner with them

Wednesday – Was actually fairly chilled, Isla was at nursery so I did some blogging and tried to get the house back in some semblance of order

Thursday – Isla and I went to Odd’s Park Farm to meet up with some friends. I was meant to be going out with some Mamas from our village in the evening, but I cancelled at the last-minute as was feeling exhausted, and I had a clingy, teething monster.

Friday – We had friends visiting again who ended up staying over night. We went to the park to play on the swing and with bubbles, and then had takeaway

Saturday – Isla and I went out for brunch with friends, did a little bit of shopping, and then in the evening we had a friend’s 40th birthday party, where Isla spent all night dancing!

Sunday – a visit to the garden centre, a few jobs round the house, and far too long trying to get a little girly to nap!

This weeks Living Arrows photo was taken (by Chris) when we went out for dinner at Nandos on Tuesday. It just makes me smile every time I look at it, as it proper looks like Isla is reading the menu. She looks so so grown up, and it gives you a little glimpse of what she may be like when she’s older.

I’m hoping this week will be a little bit more relaxed, though I’m not convinced it will be stress free. With a toddler that is teething and has a cold, we’re not getting much sleep at all. Night times are full of broken sleep, and nap times and bed times are just such a struggle at the moment.

So please, send some nice thoughts our way, as well as tissues, orange juice….and gin! Gin makes everything better right? At least for mummies anyway!
