Hello and welcome back to #FamilyFun…Week 8. We are back home now after a lovely week in Devon. That’s it for getaways now, we are staying put for a while and planning a big trip for early next year… We were well and truly spoilt with the weather last week especially considering it was October. The Ugg boots and double layered North Face coat was not needed and it wasn’t uncommon to see us just sporting just a T-Shirt – it certainly didn’t feel like October. The holiday was largely a success save for shutting my phone in a car door shattering the screen and rendering it unusable. Cue 3 hours at Apple today, in half term, with my two and one year old, oh and £120.00 and I am now back in the world of instant communication – and thank god. Oh the #bloggerproblems that come without having your phone and the general trauma and inconvenience was just a little ridiculous.
So lasts week linky was a good un, not to mention busy – I was spoilt for choice in picking my featured post. It was a tough call but I have gone with 5 Challenges of Being A First Born by the PHD Mama. This post struck a cord with me as my daughter, my first born, was only 11 months when her brother was born and it was though as she suddenly grew up over night. She seemed so much bigger and older than this tiny 4lb premature baby I was now staring at, yet she too was just a baby. Now that they are one and two I can certainly relate to everything Suchitra describes in her post and reminded me to cut my daughter a bit of slack as she too is only young.
The winner of this week’s vote was Words to Live By – Find The Fun by Burnished Chaos. I love this series and each time I read a post it inspires me in some way or reminds me to chill out a little. I certainly needed this post last week as I had been guilty of failing to find the fun and letting things get a little on top of me so THANK YOU!! I look forward to seeing this weeks Words to Live By.
OK so back to this week…
