I saw a meme on Facebook recently which really struck a cord, it is very apt of both Mr Tammy and I, in fact I suspect it is apt for 99% of parents, here what do you think?
Pretty accurate huh? Since not returning to the workforce it is a rare day I will treat myself, you know full time mummy hood doesn’t pay too well. Back in the days of the full time wage I was no stranger to a treat, so every now and then it is important to remember us too and have a little treat, so that is what Mr Tammy and I did this week, here goes…
We're celebrating the teen finishing a gruelling set of exams and her 16th birthday, albeit a week late as she had a maths exam on her birthday. She's just been treated to a set of @zoevacosmetics make up brushes. Gulp. He couldn't quite understand how brushes amounted to £105. She also managed to get a @maccosmetics foundation out of her dear old dad. Oh to be 16. #played
Yesterday was one of those rare plain sailing days where everything just works and everyone is just happy. A thoroughly gorgeous afternoon with a fabulous lunch at @thebotanistuk enjoying my favourite of all @domperignonofficial complete with a little trip around @selfridgesbirmingham and home to two gorgeous and happy children. Felt a bit lucky yesterday. Back to reality this morning, from 6.30 shouts for 'mummy' and off to help run a playgroup. 90 minutes and counting until we need to leave the house, the boy isn't up and me and the girl are still chilling in our jammies making are way through breakfast. Sigh. #bettergetmoving
So here are those must have make up brushes from @zoevacosmetics that at @laull_w just had to have for her birthday. They did make heir maiden voyage last night and I was the privileged recipient, it was like being licked by cats. They were incredibly soft and very good, I can certainly see the appeal. I however did it come away with these. My purchase, this @lancomeofficial Grandoise mascara, breaking the habit from my usual Hypnose. The jury is still out at the minute.
I must I must…learn the art of self control. Took an unexpected detour to @benefitcosmeticsuk yesterday definitely came home with more than I should. Oops. Oh well looking forward to giving these a whirl later as we are off to ruin the grandparents quiet holiday and pay them a visit for the night. It does mean a child free afternoon though so you, good times.
Old school. We've spent the day in the Cotswalds whilst Nanny and Grandad had the kiddies. Didn't do a great deal, sat, ate and drank but was pretty lovely. Now though, we're spending the night in a @travelodge.uk family room. That is two toddlers in our room, ok the travel cot housing the boy may be in bathroom but he's a really noisy sleeper… needs must…
Jumping on the #doorshot bandwagon. It's pretty cool though if looking a little unloved. Well we survived our night in the family room with two toddlers, they actually slept pretty well. If you exclude the pissing about under the bed until 10pm by the toddler and the 6.30 start. Pretty sure I saw every hour of the night though, turns out my two year old snores and is currently snoring in the back of car. Think I might join her. All in all successful 24 hours in the Cotswalds…
Sorry it is a long one this week, we really milked treat week huh? What about you, have you treated yourself?
