The Week That Was #11

Last Sunday, it was horse riding week for Miss C. She did brilliantly, especially with her up and downs. One of the girls got thrown off her horse but Miss C didn't seem phased by it. The girl was OK and got straight back on her horse which is just what you have to do. After lunch, we went to a local riding shop and bought Miss C her first riding hat. She can't wait to wear it to her next lesson.

On Monday, it was back to school and nursery. I picked Miss C up from nursery and we came home and had lunch. We spent the afternoon in the house as it was too cold and miserable to go anywhere. Thankfully the rain went off in time for the school run so we did manage to get a walk.

On Tuesday, Miss C decided she wanted to wear her horse riding hat around the house. She even had her horse out to play. She really does love horses! I received some lovely Maw Broon's goodies in the post as Mother's Day treat. I never really knew about the Broons but my Dad used to read the books all the time. I ate up all of the fudge in the package quite quickly though. It was yummy!

On Wednesday, it was another miserable day but we managed to get to the shops and do the school run without getting wet! Miss C wanted to play with her Playmobil swimming pool which she loves. We also took lots of selfies and posted them on Facebook as well as donating money to cancer research. Some people might not agree with all the make-up free selfies but, they certainly have got people talking and donating! I received a lovely treat in the post from The Memoryfoam Warehouse which was really nice of them as they'd seen I hadn't been feeling well on Twitter.

On Thursday, I was helping out at nursery. Miss C loves when I help at nursery. I don't help out often as I don't always have time but it's fun when I can. It's great to see what Miss C gets up to, who she plays with and what she learns. I've seen a big improvement in her counting and writing skills this year. After nursery, Miss C and I went home to have lunch and play. Wee Z had karate after dinner and he wore his green belt for the first time!

On Friday, I picked Miss C up from nursery and we spent the afternoon playing with her Playmobil and watching TV. We picked Wee Z up from school and took the car to get washed as it was really mucky! Of course, it started raining an hour after I'd had it washed. Typical! Husband sat his motorbike theory test today and I'm pleased to say he passed! Wee Z also got his platinum award at school so it was a good day for both of my boys!

On Saturday, I had to work in the morning. When I came home, we decided to take a road trip to Edinburgh for some Krispy Kreme doughnuts and to go to Harvey Nichols on a Louboutin hunt. We stopped off at Krispy Kreme first and Wee Z and I went in to choose some doughnuts. We don't have a Krispy Kreme near us so we went OTT and bought 24 doughnuts! Then we headed over to my cousin's house as it was her baby shower. She's due in two weeks time but she really could go any time now. It was lovely to catch up with the family as we hadn't seen each other in awhile. We went to the shops but I couldn't get shoes in my size so we headed to a restaurant for dinner and then came home. It was a fun day and great to be a little bit spontaneous!
