The Week That Was…

full of endings and new beginnings.

The week of a New Year always amazes me, being able to say “last year” when referring to a few days, whoa!

Between the kids being off school, huba having a break from work, Christmas, New Year and a stonking cold just for me I really had no clue as to what day it was.

Hubs proved just how much he loves me when he bought me balsam and menthol tissues, if that doesn’t say true love…well I don’t know what does!

This week has been one great brain fart of chocolates, alcohol, flu remedies, pj’s, Christmas decorations and well, not much else!

I did manage to get out for some fresh air and capture a beautiful last hurrah of a sunrise. The beach was frosty and oh so wonderfully sparkly in the early morning sun.

We took the decorations down this week, I hate how cold and bare the house looks and feels once the Christmas decorations are packed away, so I’m now on the hunt for some splashes of colour to cheer the place up.

Ethan the little poppet had an appointment with the ENT folk at hospital this week, poor little sausage wasn’t happy about something, not sure what but a cheeky donut soon cheered him up.

Ahren got his cute on this week. He’s my Sugah Sugah, if mama wants a cuddle I just need to say “Gimme some sugah Sugah” and he’s all over the mama cuddles.

Oh and he loves me. He wrote it in pink ink with hearts so it must be true!

I can’t abide doing nothing, so whilst I’ve been rather useless to do much this week I was able to crack on with a few crafty projects. My mama bought me a loom for Christmas, yay! Just waiting on a stash of yarn to be delivered before I can really crack on with projects.

And that’s our week, I’m trying to ignore the fact that the kids go back on Tuesday, really not sure who will find it more difficult with the early mornings, possibly me.
