It’s been a strange week hasn’t it? I pondered over the title of this week’s round up for a while. My first thought was SUNSHINE, because it has been gloriously sunny. We have had some absolutely beautiful days here and Mr Tammy and I had the most wonderful afternoon in the sunshine on Friday, it was a much needed few hours of enjoyment and that wasn’t the only fun in the sun, as you will see. Yet as I looked back over my week I saw it wasn’t all fun. I had my very first Migrane, as someone who suffers with regular headaches I had always thought a migraine would be the same. My goodness was I wrong, I have never been in so much pain and I have had two babies, naturally. It is not an understatement to say that I could not lift my head off of the pillow. It was an actual agony I hope to never have to relive again. Yet there I was thinking how awful that was, when I looked over my Instagram and it all pales into insignificance when I remember the terrible atrocity that happened in Manchester on Monday. It is beyond my comprehension how anybody could do it, what or who they must have seen moments before. I don’t know but this attack has stayed with me, more than any other. I think about it daily. It has genuinely instilled fear in me, real fear, for the first time. I know that is the goal and to admit it is playing into the hands of terrorists. Yet it has not stopped me, I remain defiant and will continue to do what I would do as though Monday hadn’t happened, but for the first time, I am afraid. The rhetoric is right though, we must carry on, we must choose love and we must always remember terrorism has no religion.
Hurrah it is going to be sunny. About blooming time. Nanny Pat is going home today though which is a mega downer but best not to dwell eh?! Two lots of washing of down, ok that's thanks to Nanny Pat…you see why I don't want her to leave… anyway let's do this #mondaymorning, after #coffee, of course.
Today just hasn't felt right. Nothing about waking up to the news this morning is ok. Today, or yesterday has been a bad day. I don't want to publish any posts today as nothing I have to say seems important or worthy. Other than to say #westandtogether in such horrible times and #chooselove now more than ever.
Sooo the weather has been absolutely gorgeous out and I have spent the last two days in my pit with my first ever migrane. It was like nothing else, and I've had two babies without an ounce of gas and air. Man was it painful and I am glad to see the back of it. It did however give me a reason to spend 48 hours in my new Luxury Egyptian Cotton drawing gown curtesy of @thetowelshop I must say luxury is not an exaggeration. So much so Mr Tammy has stolen it from me, spitting his dummy out of the pram when I tried to decline. I did tell him to enter my #giveaway coming up on the blog next week however patience isn't his strong point.
Cool as a cucumber, cute as they come but my god the tude coming out of this little one today. From the minute she got up until the minute she went to bed. The perils of a stupid o'clock nap time made for a late bed time, yet she was still up at the same time this morning #overtired #toddlerproblems
Suns out, priorities out… the window. I'm not always the most focused on gloriously sunny days at least not when in this country anyway as they are few and far between. I'm not sure today is going to be quite so glorious and yesterday definitely wasn't so I'm probably safe to resume my social media uptake for the foreseeable. Anyway this is from sunny Thursday as we walked past @tamworthcastleandgrounds which we spend a lot of time in and around yet in 6 years of living here I am still yet to go in the damn castle. Excuse the transit van like, 🙄.
Perhaps not the most insta perfect photo but it's not often I get to take photos like this. Kiddies just enjoying some hungry caterpillar with Daddy after a busy day in the humid weather. Was a bit unnerving seeing armed police, scanners and bag searches at Thomas Land today, doesn't feel right does it? Sad times we are in at the moment. I hope it's not something my children grow up to see on their days out too often.
