A family week. #WotW

This week my Word of the Week is:

It's been a real week all centering around family.

At the weekend I had some unwanted contact from a family member who has burnt a lot of bridges in the past....I don't speak to the person and haven't for years....It's a shame they only get in touch when they want something....

On Monday my great aunt came to visit along with my nephew and his mother.....The girls were spoiled rotten with their late birthday presents and a whole heap of other treats....It was nice to have a catch up and a good chat....My nephews mam was kind enough to take a photo of Stu, the girls and me.....It's very rare to have a photo together so it will be treasured.


For the rest of the week we have had lots of time together as a family as Stu has been on a lot of short shifts at work which has meant we have found time to go out shopping a couple of times for Halloween decorations. It's looking rather over decorated in here but the kids love it...

There has of course been a lot of lazy mornings, watching TV and playing Minecraft....It has been a perfect half term.

Over the weekend we're having a little Halloween party tea. We still have pumpkins to carve and we're planning to do some baking....

  2. I do love that family of photo of you guys! :) Definitely worth framing. I agree with you, family is important. And yes, it's so annoying when other family members suddenly remember you just when they need something. Sigh #wotw

      It is so hard to get family photos when there's no one to take it...

    1. Ugh! I was bothered...It really shook me up and at the same time made me so angry. I'm over it now. Thank you!

  5. Being estranged from family is so hard because there is always that chance they will try and make contact, unfortunately I have lots of experience of this so know how you feel x That photo of you all is lovely. Good luck with your Pumpkin carving we are doing ours on Sunday x #WotW
