I’ve been a bit crap this week I have to say so this post is going to be a little light on words…

“A potrait of my children once a week, every week in 2013”

Bites 31 52

Way too happy at this small hour!


Wearing a dress voluntarily for the first time ever turns her into a Diva

Busy, busy week!!

The week that was Instagrammed : Week 4

Week 4…here we go!


We were out early doors as usual to run a few errands…but no where was open so we stopped for coffees, Bean was very hyper and ended up dancing around the deserted shop singing along to the Stereophonics Have a nice day (girls got taste). From there we went to visit my BIL and pick up my Husbands cousin who was visiting briefly from Scotland.


Work in the morning, followed by lots of playing that mainly involved Bites climbing inside the doll’s house and me and Bean laughing, a lot. My Dad and his wife also came for dinner and we were up late enjoying the garden and good company.


There is always one day in my week where I have NO IDEA what we did…today was that day!


Hmmmm…apparantly two days lost forever this week.  I think however it was mainly spent stopping Bites from pulling various wires around the house out of sockets etc. Fun times,


Shopping trip and meeting Daddy for lunch at his fancy business park that has been all kitted out with lovely purple decks chairs for summer. Making my first recipe-less curry and admiring the flowers bringing my garden to life amongst all the dead grass!


Hanging out at my Mum’s always means fun for the girls, and while they sleep once we are back home I can get my chores sorted as I knew we had a BUSY weekend.


My family descended for an impromptu lunch, which was lovely, then left leaving food (thankfully) and mess…grr!  Then it was out to work, cooking a Hog Roast for an Officers Summer Ball, which they decided to hold as a festival.  Despite the rain, it was an incredible event and after we had packed up the CO invited us to enjoy the music and everything else that was on offer – who are we to refuse!! It was so much fun, and the band at the event were EPIC, seriously cannot fault them or the mix of music, if you have an event and need a band look them up – The Treasury.


Linking up as usual with the lovely Hannah! (check her out in her gorgeous selfie…envious of that outfit)

A portrait of my children once a week, every week in 2013

Wow, my girls are growing so fast I’m not sure I am ready to let go.  The potty training is going so well, my Bean is a bit of a camel though holding her wee in for longer than I can! As for Bites to say she loves her newly acquired skill of crawling is an understatement, she giggles away to herself and she is so FAST.  Also, this week the bond between them is getting so tight, they love to play together with Bean asking most afternoons now if we can all go and play in her room together – most days are started with these two questions “Mummy, can I have breakfast now? Where’s Bites” I love it so much…and I have been greedy this week and picked two of each of them.

Ok, so here goes, linking up with one of my top Bloggers – Hannah makedoandpush

As an aside, I’m linking up badly from my phone as my husband has taken the laptop to work AGAIN.

So, Sunday saw us woken far to early by our little munchkins, wr decided to seize the day and headed out to a beautiful forest and park just 10 minutes away.  So worth it! Then we chilled out and braaied and watched Andy Murray become a legend. 😀

Sunday 3

Monday was spent chilling out in the garden and I made a macaroni cheese Bolognese inspired by my favourite foodie blog Drizzle and Dip – so good.

Tuesday playing in the garden and learning to share…in the worst possible way!!


Yep, this happened. Thanks for sharing guys.

Wednesday I have no idea what we did but it did include me and the pool!!

Happy naptime for mama!

Thursday. We hosted the last of the group we go to at our local church in our garden as the weather was so gorgeous, no photos as I was flat out running about like a loon. Bites decided reverse crawling was getting very frustrating so was either shouting at me, or stealing my tea.
And I learnt that I can’t French plait and with two girls it’s something I’m gonna need to learn.

OCD tendencies or fencing her sister in I’m not sure which I prefer! Again lot’s of garden time, which meant hat wearing for me, apple stealing from Bean and a rare evening solo as no baby sitter meant I missed my hubby’s work BBQ and instead got to read my book. Yaye.

My first ever the next sale…good times surprisingly!
Then whilst Bites napped we had a baking session – easy cake pops and satay chicken sticks for dinner. Yum. With noodles, enjoyed by all. Then it was 007 Skyfall time and plenty of moisturising before bed!

I really hope I can keep this up, it’s such a nice way to look back o the week and remember what we actually did…that said it looks like all we did was eat and play in the garden!
