My Week – 06/06/16

I am a bit late in doing my post this week, as we were away for the weekend, so am doing my little update for you today.

As I mentioned last week, we had both the boys here for the weekend staying, which was great having all 3 together under one roof for the first time in ages, it really affected my Daughter.  Although she was in bed most of the time they were here.

Luckily it was half term last week, but unfortunately, while everyone was out and about enjoying themselves, she was suffering, the only trip out we had was on Wednesday to the Dentist, and that knocked her out for the rest of the week.

I also need to apologise to everyone for being so quiet, I had a pretty bad week last week and it just brought me down.  I think it was seeing everyone else go out and have fun, and we were sat at home :(.  It really hit home, just how horrible this illness is.

This weekend, my husband went away with friends for a surprise party, so I went over to my friends and had a lovely relaxing weekend.  My Daughter stayed with my parents, and once we got to our friends and the men had gone off on their travels, we had a relaxing afternoon just chatting and then popped to the shops.  In the evening we went out for dinner.  Sunday morning was nice and relaxing before myself, friend and her two daughters hit the shops for a bit of retail therapy.  First stop  was to get me some flip flops as stupidly in the hurry to get sorted on Saturday morning, I packed boots, and my feet were roasting.  I actually ended up with 2 pairs of flip flops, canvas shoes  and three tops, and treated my Daughter to a few bits.  We had a nice lunch out before heading home to find our husbands were back.  I then had to drive home, and I hate the M25 so was moaning and tutting at other drivers all the way.

I then put my Mum role back on and after a lovely chat and catch up with my Daughter it was back to normality.

I needed this weekend away, I think, to recharge my batteries although it felt weird not having to run around after her and put her needs first.

I am now back on track and raring to go, so normal service is to be resumed.

I haven’t really got much else to report, as we really did not do anything.

Hope you all had a great week.

      Thank you, I think that was my problem I just needed to recharge my batteries a little again, ready to commence the battle x

    Retail therapy is always the one, I am forever doing shopping. Especially around summer time, perfect excuse to shop!

    I hope you’re feeling a lot better now x

      Thank you am feeling a lot happier now, and a shopping trip always cheers me up, well it does if I can find something to buy 🙂 x

    Good to know that you had a relaxing weekend and good for you on buying so many new pair of shoes. Motherhood can be very exhausting and I think nobody should feel guilty to need a bit of ‘me’ time sometimes.

      It was a lovely weekend, before she got ill, she would have come over with me and had a catch up with my friends Daughters, but we all agreed it would be best to stay home, which is why I got her some treats. And a girl can never have enough shoes x

    You definitely deserved to have some down time and relax yourself x

      Thank you, it was needed and has made a difference to my mood, and am ready for this weeks battles. I don’t want to feel like I did last week again x

    I think I could live near a beach like that. Sounds like you all had a great time, despite being gridlocked on the M25. It happens to us all.

    Thanks for Sharing

      That picture was actually from when we visited the Dominican last year, but just thought it was a nice happy picture, I could live there though. I just hate the M25 we live just off one of the junctions and it drives me mad at times. We did have a great weekend though x

    The recharging of batteries is always a worthwhile exercise and it does wonders for the soul x

      It certainly has helped and it was so nice to just have me to worry about, although I was in constant contact with my Daughter and missed her like mad, and felt like my right arm had fallen off. It is certainly helping with this weeks battles.

    Sounds like you needed a break and I’m so glad you got one. Don’t worry about missing out and not doing what everyone else seems to be doing, just enjoy each other’s company and make home into your perfect location and destination 🙂

      Thank you , the weekend really helped, would have loved my Daughter to have been with me, but was best for her to stay at home and I needed the break I think x

  8. 7th June 2016 / 8:12 pm

    Sometimes we all need a break so I can completely understand why you had some time away. Plus it gave you and your daughter some time to catch up x

      We do need a break and it was a nice weekend, but as soon as my husband was back from his boys weekend and we were back from shopping, it was a very quick coffee and then we headed home as he knew I wanted to get back to her x

  9. 7th June 2016 / 8:25 pm

    Having a little break, even if it’s from stress, seems to be helpful. It’s nice that you were able to go shopping for a while.

      The shopping really did help and my Daughter loved her treats as well, it was nice to just be me and recharge my batteries x

      Thank you, have had a little bit of drama today but got that out of my system now, and hopefully the rest of the week will be ok x

  11. 7th June 2016 / 8:47 pm

    It sounds like you had a lovely week, nothing like spending time catching up with friends as well. x

  12. 8th June 2016 / 7:44 am

    I hope you have a better week this week, and thanks for the reminder – I just jotted down that I need to buy flip flops today! Sending you lots of strength.

      It has been quite an emotional week, will be updating why in my next weekly update, but although its been tough, it is hopefully meaning things are going in the right direction, so not all bad. Glad I reminded you about the flip flops I live in them in the summer x

    Everyone needs a recharge now and again. You don’t need to apologise for being quiet on the blog front! Its allowed!

      Thank you, I just felt bad for myself as well as I do love my blog. I did need the recharge though x

  14. 8th June 2016 / 6:52 pm

    Good on you for taking some time out for yourself. Sometimes you need to just recharge your batteries and it doesn’t just benefit you but the others around you 🙂 xxx

      Thank you, I did need it and did benefit from it, but I couldn’t wait to get back home to her x

  15. 8th June 2016 / 9:47 pm

    Retail therapy can cure anything right!? Glad your daughter enjoyed her treats

      There is nothing more satisfying that a bit of retail therapy x

  16. 9th June 2016 / 9:22 am

    I am glad you managed to get away for a little time to yourself. Self love is very important and I can imagine you need it more than some others 🙂 x

      Thank you, it was needed and helped me get ready for this week. I think we all need a bit of self time every now and then x

  17. 9th June 2016 / 2:02 pm

    Going out with friends time by time is everyone’s needs. Glad your parents are there to look out for your daughter. 🙂

      Thank you, it was just what I needed and my parents are such a great support x

  18. 11th June 2016 / 3:02 am

    At the end of the day we also have to look out for ourselves because if we don’t … we won’t be able to take care of them / our loved ones. Glad you’re feeling much better now.

    It must have been nice to have everyone together despite Caitlin sleeping through so much of it. Your weekend away sounded very needed.
