The Week That Was: Captured #79

Hallo! Welcome to The Week That Was: Captured! Have you had a lovely week?

The rules for #TWTWC are simple; link up one 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. Please only link up relevant posts. Also, if you fancy commenting on other people’s posts that would be super too – everyone loves a comment!

Last week
madcatsI really enjoyed Karen’s (The Mad House of Cats & Babies) post last week! I was rather envious of her family adventure to Bangkok – it looked absolutely amazing…!
bees circus Beth (Bee’s Circus) gave a lovely round-up of her year. Her photos are fantastic, so make sure you pop over and have a look. Gorgeous!

Anna’s blog (Play at Home Teacher) is a new blog find for me, and I loved her first instalment of #TWTWC! Her daughter Sophie is a real cutie and she went for her first swim last week.

Our week
It’s been another exciting week here at Make, Do and Push! We’ve been house hunting again, and Peppercorn has been fluttering away in my belly! I’ve been suffering from pregnancy insomnia though, so it’s been a serious effort to even walk up the stairs some days.

We had a lovely wander around our local National Trust property, Nostell Priory, on Sunday. It was rather chilly and very frosty, but it was lovely to get out the house and work up an appetite.

My pregnancy insomnia hit on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday, so I’ve been a bit of a zombie… We did go out for a lovely lunch on Wednesday though.

I managed to sleep again on Wednesday night, so was feeling slightly brighter on Thursday! Busby and I did some baking, and made some rather delicious cupcakes.

Friday was exciting! I headed over to Cottingham to meet Nick, who had taken half a day of annual leave, and we spent the afternoon house hunting. We found one very possible house to buy! We then stayed over in Walkington, had steak for dinner, and checked out the area at night.

We spent Saturday morning house hunting again, this time South of the Humber, but the areas weren’t for us, so we came back early and spent the afternoon talking about the two houses on our “second viewing” list, and reading Ideal Home!


1. Exploring in the frost (Sunday) // 2. Rumbled! She found me and my secret chocolate stash – I managed to convince her the Quality Streets were “decorations”!! (Sunday) // 3.

Huge apologies – my badge has been very awkward the last few weeks – it is under construction for now, as the template keeps reformatting the quotation marks in the code (geeky snore) Please let me know on Twitter if you’d like me to email the badge through to you… It seems to be working on Blogger blogs fine – it’s just WordPress! You can find the badge here for the time being.

    Hi Hannah.
    Thanks for the lovely mention. I discovered your blog and some others through this linky 🙂 I hope my new linky will be as successful as yours and help people to discover new blogs too.
    I am so impressed with how much you are doing while pregnant! A house move, going out of the house and looking after a toddler. If I have a second I will be rereading these posts as motivation! Hope you get some better sleep next week 🙂 xx

    Hey, you code isn’t working as it has too many ” in it. Take out the ” in the code from the box

    so that it looks like this:

    And voila that should work.

    House hunting is so scary and exciting!
    The insomnia sucks, hope it settles down soon, sounds like life up North is going well, I’m sure once you’re all settled in to your own home it will be amazing x

    Those cup cakes look rather scrumptious! Yummy 🙂 Oh the joys of house hunting – I remember when we were looking to buy 7 years ago, our youngest was barely two weeks old! Luckily we found something pretty quickly and we were in by Christmas. Seems like yesterday. Have fun and good luck in finding the perfect home for the Hardings xx
    p.s. hope you get a bit more sleep this week :/

    Sounds like you had a very busy week with the house hunting and taking care of a toddler too! Having sleep insomnia added to that I am sure does not help. I work full time and so for me, it is a case of ‘the weekend that was captured :)!
