Last Sunday, we didn't wake up until after 9.30am. We must have needed the sleep. Miss C didn't have horse riding so we lazed about, the kids playing with their toys and me doing the ironing in my comfies. We had our monthly massage booked. I went first and enjoyed a full body massage and facial. Husband had a hot stones treatment. It's nice to be able to relax at home with a pampering session. I took the kids to swimming lessons whilst Husband made the dinner. We decided to treat ourselves to some yummy ice cream afterwards.
On Monday, we didn't have to get up as early because it was mid-term break! We were still up fairly early though as Z had Karate camp to go to. After we dropped him off, Miss C and I came home and I did some college work whilst Miss C got to watch Bambi. Having college holidays at the same time as school holidays is great for childcare but not so good when you need to do homework. Miss C was excited to see the new Playmobil catalogue whilst she ate her lunch. After lunch and after picking Z up, we did some baking. We made vanilla cupcakes with vanilla buttercream. Miss C did a lot of the work herself and Z just supervised or helped with licking whisks. They tasted really yummy!
On Tuesday, Miss C and I dropped Z off at Karate camp and headed home to get ready to head out shopping. Our first stop was Build a Bear as a treat for Miss C as she got Pupil of the Week last month. She chose a lovely bear covered in colourful love hearts. She decided to call her Love Heart and we bought her some Frozen PJs. I had a look around a few shops and picked up a few bits from New Look. I love that I can use my student discount in there! We got home just in time for dinner and then an early night. Z enjoyed the day with his best friend.
On Wednesday, the last day of our mid term break, Miss C went to her best friend's house for a play date. Z went to Karate camp for the last day of the camp. I enjoyed a few hours in silence and got on with some college work. After I picked Z up, we had lunch and then played a few games of draughts. It was good to have some one on one time with him. Miss C came home just before dinner and was exhausted after a trip to soft play. It was an early night for them both to prepare for the early rise for school.
On Thursday, it was time for the kids to go back to school. I keep reading that everyone down south are about to break up for half term which makes me kind of sad as I'd love another week off. I've shared a half term time along with a few other bloggers in this post if you are stuck for ideas of what to do for your break. I spent the day doing my college work. I got quite a bit done and I was grateful of the break by school run time.
On Friday, I dropped the kids off at school and headed to the shops. I spent the rest of the day carrying on with college work. After school, the kids and I had dinner and watched The Lego Movie. Husband was off out for his brother's stag do. He was looking very smart!
On Saturday, it was Valentines Day. Husband and I exchanged cards and he bought me a nice necklace as a gift. After Karate, we headed out for lunch and met up with friends. It was a great meal and a good catch up. We were feeling pretty stuffed after lunch so we came home and had a little nap. In the evening, once the kids were in bed, Husband and I watched TV together and shared some Haagen Daaz ice cream.
