This week my word of the week is voice or lack of it!
Over the period of this week, my voice has gone from sounding like Justin Fletcher's Gail Force to a coughing seal! When my mum phoned the other day and I answered her next words were literally 'Oh my!' I had tried to warn her via Facebook but her reaction had me believe she hadn't read my words on social media and my Dad had.
As for hubby I feel he forgets I'm ill somehow. The eldest was playing up at dinner time earlier this week and he turned to me and said 'Say something!' OK hubby how about croak, croak. So more cough medicine has been consumed in the hopes I may get better.
I've been trying to get to bed earlier leaving the girls in the capable hands of hubby to get to sleep. However, despite my body needing the rest my head has still been buzzing with a desire to be filled so I've been reading the latest edition of the baby magazines and have also been reading the Artful Parent by Jean Van'T Hul which is peppered with little quotes and information on how to have an artful family.
On Wednesday I ate dinner while watching Sarah Akwisombe 5 Secrets to Running a Successful Blog. It was interesting to see her suggestions, her telling things as she sees them and encouraging others to be unashamedly themselves. She too has had a cold this week but like a trooper she got on with the webinar.
The youngest being incredibly vocal! Yes I know you still exist sweetheart but do you need to give mummy a headache! Eldest too has been shouting at me this week! Girls I am not deaf but will soon be if you carry on - the little monkeys.
I created this over the weekend to put in the girls bedroom and now hubby has to fit it on the wall. I think my readers enjoyed seeing it and I may have inspired Orchard Toys themselves to create one for their office too.
As you can imagine I've been opting to wear comfortable clothing to lounge around the house. Although I feel there's not been much lounging but rather more sorting through things such as the girls wardrobe, sorting out wall art for their room and removing things they no longer need such as tiny little baby blankets. Both girls have a bit of new clothing although I do still need to get pyjamas for the eldest and my parents took her out to get a pair of wellington boots and she slept through the experience! She hadn't settled the night before so this was the consequence.
I attended an NCT Sale over the weekend and picked up numerous bargains including the Artful Parenting book I mentioned earlier, more Orchard Toy games and dresses for the girls. I'm particularly drawn to the labels H&M, Next and JoJo Maman I've noticed as well as a few supermarket pieces.
So that's it for this week. What have you been up to?
