The Week That Was: Captured #29

Hello! Welcome to The Week That Was: Captured – just like The Week That Was: Instagrammed, but broader!

Have you all had a great week?

Thank you to all of you who linked up last week; I hope you all manage to link up again!

The rules are simple; link up a post about your week! It can be photographed, Instagrammed, written, videoed… basically in any format you wish! This linky is about capturing memories and I treat it a bit like an online diary.

My week…

Gosh, it’s been one of those weeks that has felt like an eternity! I was on annual leave on Tuesday (my last annual leave day of my current job) but I spent half of it asleep as Busby had me up until 3.45am… I haven’t been up until that time (without some sleep) since I was about 22! 
Busby and I have had lots of fun exploring feathers this week; blowing them, stroking them, throwing them – she’s thoroughly enjoyed it, and it’s been fascinating to watch her be so enthralled by something I consider to be so normal. That’s pretty much life at the moment; by discovering everything for the first time, she’s showing me how things we take for granted are actually pretty awesome. 
I’ve also taken a fair few photos of myself… I’m trying to get used to seeing myself on screen as I’m aware the wedding will be like experiencing A-list fame for the day. 
1. Mint green and poppy red polka dot nails (Monday) // 2. I’m considering this look for my wedding – what do you think? (Monday) // 3. The addiction continues (Thursday) // 4. My new short bob (Thursday) // 5. Eating a biscuit in our den (Friday) // 6. “Are you taking another photo of me Mummy?” (Friday) // 7. Polka dots and pugs (Saturday) // 8. Loving my outfit! (Saturday) // 9. My bargain find in Debenhams – a Henry Holland “vintage” car print shift dress for £12!! (Saturday)

    I love seeing pictures of Busby, she’s such a cutie! Sorry I’ve not taken part in such a long time, with being back at work for most of the week, I only ever get to do something interesting for 3 days of the week, that’s something I desperately want to change xx

      Don’t worry lovely lady – returning to work puts the maternity leave balance completely off xx
