Howdy! Welcome to The Week That Was: Captured! Have you had a wonderful week?
The rules for #TWTWC are simple; link up one post about your week (it doesn’t have to be the whole week – it can just be one day, or your weekend)! 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!
I loved reading Rachel’s (Dreaming of the Country) update last week – her photos were gorgeous, and it was interesting to hear how life with two is going!!!
Little Button Diaries is always a weekly highlight for me – their photos are stunning and I especially loved their bluebell field photos last week.
I really enjoyed Yorkshire Tots‘ post last week about the Otley Show. It sounds like just the place Busby would love, and their photos were beautiful.
Sunday was a very up and down day! Nick and I headed to IKEA after finishing packing up a few last bits. We had a successful trip and bought everything we needed! However, there was a small incident with the van and a car as we were picking up the last pieces of furniture from the warehouse, which put a dampener on the day.
I turned 35 weeks pregnant on Monday! The day was spent putting up essential furniture (beds and curtain rails), and we slept at the house as a family for the first time!
Busby and I had a lovely day on Tuesday pottering around the house, unpacking lots of boxes and rediscovering toys and books.
Nick’s parents came over on Wednesday to help us make headway with the boxes. We made the Cocktail Lounge (living room) liveable and turned it into a beautiful, welcoming space… with curtains!!!
Nick’s parents were over again on Thursday; Nick’s Dad finished lining our kitchen and family room so we could paint. I had my Home Birth Booking appointment in the afternoon, which was fantastic! You can read more about it here. I also made it onto the front page of Mumsnet’s Blogger Network, which was pretty exciting!!!
I was awake very early Friday morning with lower back cramps, and finally got to sleep about 7am… I spent the morning feeling utterly exhausted and dizzy, so Nick came home from work early so I could rest, and didn’t have to worry about collapsing in front of Busby. I spent the afternoon in bed, resting and suffering a few more bouts of the cramps – wondering whether Baby might make an early entrance.
Another restless night on Friday meant that I was fairly shattered by the time Saturday arrived! (I do hope the next few weeks aren’t going to continue along this vein, as I shall be a shell of a woman by the time Baby arrives…) Busby had been up early but miraculously went back to sleep and slept until 10am, so I had a slow get-up while Nick headed out to pick up some food for the BBQ. We hosted a mini party in the afternoon for Nick’s Mum to celebrate her birthday, and all ate far too much! The sun was shining and the garden was gloriously warm. Saturday evening was spent watching Eurovision!!!! YAY! Usually, Nick and I watch it with a bottle of prosecco, but alas this year it was pineapple juice for me…
What have you been up to this week?
