My Week That Was – Wk 23

Here I am boring you all again with my exciting life, I know many of you don’t maybe understand why I keep this post up each week, but it’s a great way for me to remember the little things that happen in our lives, so thanks Katie for hosting, head over to Katie’s Blog to find out more.

Monday – It was not a usual horrible work day as it was a Bank Holiday – woohoo. The day started early as it always does in the ICC household, but I wasn’t too bothered as I knew at 10am we were meeting my Dad and Stepmum for Breakfast at a local cafe, I do like living in a town and close to my Dad so these times are possible. The kids were really well-behaved and managed a slice of toast between them, this is huge in our house.

We then headed into Canterbury Town to pick up some bits for holiday, sun tan lotions etc, but I also managed to get a new Skirt and Grayson some new trainers, after nursery ruined his others.

We then headed home so the kiddo’s could have a late lunch, we spent the afternoon in the usual way, playing with toys, watching Mickey Mouse and climbing for Addison and Bum Shuffling for Grayson.

I quickly made some Thank You cards with Grayson’s finger painting, to be sent for Birthday Gift thanks.

Ash and I caught up with our US drama’s and had Enchiladas for Dinner, yummy Mexican.

Tuesday – We headed out fairly early to the town my sister lives in. We stopped off first at the outlet centre so Ashley could visit the new SuperDry shop, unfortunately Ash didn’t find anything but Miss Addison managed to get a new pretty pair of Clark Shoes after we had her measured and realised she had gone up another size.

We then headed to my sisters flat, where for the next 5 hours we had our Makeup and Hair trial for her Wedding in August. I was really pleased with my MakeUp, I loved the top Liner as I can’t do this myself due to being blind in my Left eye.

We then headed home to get the kids ready for bed and have a treat of a Chinese, which unfortunately turned into a Kebab as all the Chinese Takeaways around us are shut on Tuesday’s.

Wednesday – Real early start, I was at work by 7.30am as I had a crucial meeting today (who never turned up – anger ? Yep).

The day was made better by a little visitor  coming to see me at lunchtime, my beautiful little girl. It was lovely watching her enjoy the mass of space by running around and terrorising everyone’s files.

It was a lovely evening as we had a lovely hour or so of great play, Addison loved being thrown in the air and rough housing with her Daddy, as well as her new pastime, spinning in circles till she falls over.

Grayson got a little annoyed with all the noise as he was trying to enjoy his new fave programme this week, Zing Zillas.


Thursday – So usually I like Thursday’s, it’s my work at home day but today was not that way. It started with me taking Grayson to have his pre school boosters. He did so well considering we can’t explain to him at all what is going to happen, he really amazes me each day.

I then dropped Grayson home to Daddy and Addy and I headed into work to have a 4hr 1 on 1 appointment with an Accountant/Auditor it was awful, I ended up leaving work with a killer migraine.

In the afternoon I got the news that I had been picked to blog for Emma’s Diary, I am really excited about the new relationship and hopefully improving my writing style.

FridayAsh had no work again today so he decided to get him and Addy up and ready and they headed off to Nanny’s (his Mum’s) for a visit as she lives an hour away. Grayson and I decided to stay home and have a PJ day, I got on with some housework and a little internet surfing and Grayson enjoyed some Mickey Mouse, we then had a play together in the peace and quiet without being climbed on by Addison, I think one on one time with the kids is really important especially when you have a child like Grayson who needs peace to concentrate.

The rest of the day was pretty standard, with mood swings, TV and many meals.

Saturday – We made the decision no matter the weather or kids moods we would leave the house today, so we did.

We headed into the seaside town of Folkestone as I wanted some new sandals from Primark. We also managed to get Grayson a swim set for the holiday and Addison a lovely Red Waterproof Coat.

We didn’t last as long as planned being out as the weather was quite chilly and Addison was having a very moody day, we stopped and did some food shopping at Sainsburys and then went home to relax and warm up.

Ashley and I stayed up a little later than normal, he was watching a film (which we have seen 100 times) so I decided to make some jewellery, I have really lost my creative flair though so I struggled to decide on colours etc, I really need some inspiration to come this way.

Sunday – We had no plans when we awoke Sunday apart from Ash going to my Mom’s to collect his pushbike, as the weather wa nicer than planned I decided we would head to a local park to get some fresh air into the kiddies lungs and tire them out for their nap time. We had a lovely time on the swings and Addison even ran on the tarmac a little, we had a snack and then headed to my Mom’s.

Whilst they’re picking up Ashley’s bike, my StepMum called and invited us over for the afternoon for something to eat, wasn’t going to say No, the kids played and we chatted it was a nice afternoon and evening.

We headed home and I did some blogging in bed.
