On Sunday, after a late start, we decided to take a trip to the city centre for a nosey. We ended up getting quite a few things including a special treat for myself. The kids love visiting the city centre and it was a beautiful, sunny day there. We arrived home after 7pm, ate a quick dinner and headed to bed for an early night.
I was up through the night with what I suspect or what I know is a urinary tract infection. I've had them before and they are not pleasant. Husband ended up going for cranberry juice at 4am so I could try and flush it out of my system. I still had to get up at 6am and get ready for work though. Thankfully it eased off during the day and I was feeling better by dinner time. The kids managed to enjoy some sunshine after what started as a miserable day!
Tuesday was another miserable day although the rain held off for a little while. We didn't get home until after 5pm so it was a good job I had already made our chicken curry for dinner the night before. My stomach started getting really sore again so an early night was needed.
It was a foggy start on Wednesday morning and I knew this meant it would be a lovely sunny day later on. The kids weren't feeling this and asked if they could wear hats and scarves to school! It did brighten up, as I knew it would, so I was glad I convinced them not to wear them. We had a very healthy dinner of roast potatoes, veg and salmon and the kids burnt off some energy by taking our neighbour's dog for a walk.
Thursday was another quick day at work. I made myself a very healthy pasta salad whilst Husband and the kids had macaroni with sausage through it. The kids played outside for a little while after dinner and Charlotte had fun trying on my new shoes. She's her mother's daughter!
On Friday, Husband picked the kids up from school so they were already home when I finished work. We got the house tidy, put all the school washing on and out to dry and, after dinner, Husband took the kids to the fun swim. Charlotte's front tooth was ready to fall out but she didn't want to pull it out herself!
Husband had to work on Saturday so it was just the kids and I. We were up early to go to the supermarket for the food shop and then dropped Zachary off at Karate. After putting the shopping away, picking Zachary up and having lunch, I set about tackling the massive load of ironing I had to do. Charlotte wanted to do some crafts whilst Zachary read his book. It took me all afternoon and I felt it earned me a nice bath after dinner...which the kids gatecrashed part way through. Charlotte's tooth finally fell out! I don't think she'll have a gap for long though as the adult tooth is already coming in!
