The Week That Was

This week has been good and slightly less hectic than some of our recent ones!

The girls and I did chores and played in the morning and then Josh took Ivy in the afternoon as I was frazzled after solo parenting for ten days in Devon.

Josh's sister (and her family) arrived for a camping trip so we went out to lunch with them and I spent the afternoon doing chores and reading up on my new essential oils and diffuser that arrived that day (you'll be hearing lots more about these I'm sure!). It was our eighth wedding anniversary.

Ivy went to play with someone from church in the morning so I tried to relax a bit, did some baking and a bit of cleaning. We played in the afternoon (had a tea party!) and after the kids went to bed I did some crafting and made some all-natural essential oil air fresheners!

I baby-sat my nephew in the morning (I had fun with three!!) and in the afternoon I had ladies' bible study and did some chores.

It was Josh's day off so we went to the zoo and had loads of fun. Ivy is really at an age where she can get into things now and she really loved going on some of the vintage fun-fair rides. My heart exploded with love seeing her joyously riding the mini-roundabouts (see the video here) but also broke a bit as she's growing up so fast!
We had a work BBQ in the evening but we were all exhausted and were glad to get home and to bed!

A quieter day. Some ladies from my bible study group came over to help me put up a shelf and repair a hole which Ivy made by pulling the shelf down (argh!) which was a great weight off my mind. We spent the afternoon chilling out in the garden and then Josh and I had a date in the evening. We got chips from the van and walked up onto a headland and watched the sea...perfect!
