What I’ve learned this week #12

At the start of this week I was feeling a bit overwhelmed with what feels like a never ending to do list that engulfs you when you become a blogger. But overall it’s been a good week. Miss Belle has been so funny (in hysterics today at the word “woah!”), and seems to (shock horror) be starting to play by herself that little bit more. I doubt it will last long but still, it really makes a difference when you have an important phone call to make!

What I’ve learned this week:

  1. Miss Belle’s memory and recognition amazes me. We had a lovely meal out at Yellows, by the football club in Norwich last weekend, and Miss Belle (a forced Norwich City fan – poor girl) kept shouting “City!” when she saw the Canary logo. It was so cute.
  2. A family day out with friends is still lovely, even when it snows and is slightly freezing! If you’ve not read it, I wrote about why we chose to do that rather than hold a birthday party for her this year.
  3. Miss Belle is trying to tell me she wants a baby sister or brother, and is obsessed with two of my friends’ babies. We saw two this week and she just saying “baby, kiss!” – so cute my heart melted and my ovaries twitched!
  4. Today we went to the beach with an NCT friend and her little boy. It was so sunny and calm. It really was boooot-i-ful as they say in Norfolk. Look at this photo – there is no filter on it! Miss Belle and I had a splash in the sea in our wellie boots. It’s moments like these I am so thankful for.

On the blog…

  1. I have been lucky enough to take part in some other bloggers guest series this week, which is great fun. I took part in Bloggers Bluff with Lucy at Home. She invites bloggers to tell three stories about themselves, one of which is a bluff. If you’re a close friend you may know which I’m bluffing about, so go and look but don’t spoil the surprise for everyone else – it’s revealed next week!
  2. I’ve also taken part in My Random Musings’s Blogger Spotlight Q&A so if you want to know a bit more about me, head over there.
  3. I’ve been chatting to a few brands this week about some potential work in the next couple of months.
  4. My post “you know you’re a mum when.. ” was a featured posts in this week’s #ablogginggoodtime linky. It’s so lovely to hear other people can relate to my moans/rants/musings. If you’ve not read it check out the comments on the post for loads more things which should be added to the list!

Have a great weekend everyone.
