Little moments make a lovely week - WotW

This week my Word of the Week is:


This week seems to have flown over which is strange considering we haven't really done anything out of the ordinary....In fact our week has been quite boring but there has been quite a few moments which have made it a good week....

The girls have been getting along great this week and they have had some lovely moments together....On Saturday they even got on with doing their homework, working as a team to get it done quicker....

Stu took the girls to have a look around the new B&M store which opened near us....They were so good and instead of asking for everything they only got a packet of sweets each....

We did some painting and crafts after school on Monday....I now have a house full of painted animals and Ellie is loving playing with them. She has played vets, Minecraft and racing with them....


I don't know why but recently the girls and I have been going crazy for desserts after our tea....This week alone we've had ice cream sundaes with fancy glasses I got from Poundland, Chocolate pizza that I got from Tesco and strawberries and cream....

Ellie did make me chuckle with the strawberries....She wanted all the juice squeezed out? Apparently she doesn't like strawberry juice. I covered them in cream....She didn't know any different. lol

Yesterday a moment from my Timehop took my breath away.....It was 7 years ago yesterday since we found out Ellie needed heart surgery to fix the hole in her heart....I still remember that day like it was yesterday....

Little did we know that Becky needed the same surgery too....It was a rough few months but we all got through it and lived to tell the tale....After all these year I think seeing these moments won't get to me but they still make me feel so emotional.....

I can't end the post without mentioning the weather....Last week we were going to the park in t-shirts and the sun was shining....This week! Ugh! We have had all types of weather! Rain, hail, sleet, snow, thunder, lightning, wind and a little bit of sun....Global warming isn't working! lol It's like the seasons have moved by a couple of months....We're now having winter when it should be spring....

  2. The weather is weird. Our apple blossom is late, which is a good job, as the hail would have smashed it. Trees obviously knew what was coming. Sounds like some lovely moments for you this week. It would be nice to go back to tshirts next week. #wotw

  4. I know how you feel when those messages come up on Timehop, we had issues going on 3 years ago, in fact I had one today telling of my call from the consultant and my daughter's upcoming surgeries. And yes, it's certainly been a strange one for weather this week!

  12. Love all your little moments this week - those painted animals look fab. I can imagine looking back is very emotional - your girls have been through so much and it's so good to see how well they are doing now. The weather has certainly been crazy this week though hasn't it? Hope you have a lovely weekend :-)

  15. Awww isn't it lovely when they get on and things come together. It is understandable you.woild be emotional as such a big event for you and your family. But at least now you.can reflect and celebrate the achievement. Don't mention the weather it is crazy. You don't know whether you are coming or going X #wotw

    1. Yes...We look back and do think how lucky we are.
      I know...The weather is crazy! I have left the house with it being sunny and dry and ended up getting snowed, rained and hailed on, on the school run then by the time I get home it's stopped...lol
