This week my Word of the Week is:
There has been a lot of growing things this week.....We planted sunflowers which hopefully should start growing soon. I have remembered to water them and they have had plenty of sunshine. I suck at gardening so keep your fingers crossed for us.
We have also been growing Sea Monkeys.....We added the eggs to the purified water on Saturday and we can see the little things swimming about already. I have a whole blog post about it next week but we're very happy with them at the moment.
Next week the girls and I are going clothes shopping.....They are both growing so quickly. Ellie needs new leggings and Becky needs new jeans.....Usually I will pass clothes down from Becky to Ellie but Ellie isn't keen on wearing jeans. She prefers leggings which Becky has none of. Becky hates wearing leggings. lol Becky also needs new trainers for P.E at school....She only has a couple more sized to go and then she will be in the same size as me....Hooray! I will be borrowing her shoes.....hehehe
What isn't growing is my waistline! I haven't been dieting as such or tried to lose weight but I have been eating less crisps, chocolate, drinking less fizzy pop & walking more....I bought some jeans a couple of months ago which fitted perfectly. They were a size 18. They are now falling off me. I tried some jeans on which are size 16 and were too tight, they now fit perfectly.
We had Ellie's parents evening on Monday.....Ellie is doing well....She isn't where she should be at her writing. Her teacher said she just doesn't write enough and daydreams. Yep. That is about right. She has been like that all the way through school. She hates writing. She will do the bare minimum....Her teacher is on about moving her next to her little friend after the holidays. He is a great worker so hopefully he will encourage her. She is gaining confidence and is a fab at reading so it wasn't all bad.....I can't believe this is her last parents evening before she starts the last year of primary school.....Where did my little girl go. This time next year she will be preparing for her SAT's and starting secondary school.....Eek!
