What I’ve learned this week #23

We kicked this week off with a really lovely family day out at the seaside on Saturday. Then I visited my parents with Miss Belle from Tuesday-Friday. Poor Daddy had to stay at home and go to work. I felt a bit guilty he couldn’t come with us, but it’s nice that I’m able to go and visit Nanna and Grandad with Miss Belle when it’s the school holidays and our classes stop. I took my parents out for a scrummy Afternoon Tea (yes I know, twice in two weeks, that’s how we roll). We went to The Principal Hotel in York and it was amazing. I think it was even better than the Afternoon Tea we recently had at The Assembly House in Norwich! Although the Norwich scones were better! Another possible review coming soon…

Afternoon Tea At The Principal York

What I’ve learned this week

  1. My daughter most definitely takes after me in the chocolate department. We made Chocolate Easter Egg Nests on Sunday and whilst my back was turned she snaffled a Mini Egg off one of them. That’s my girl!
  2. Now we’ve finished watching The Crown on Netflix I decided we needed a new box set to watch. I’d heard loads about The Walking Dead. I say loads. I’d heard it was good. I’d heard it was now on season 7 (so it must be good). And I’d heard the guy that holds the cards up at the door in Love Actually was in it. Win. I had to turn off the first episode half way through. Too scary!
  3. In other TV related news, I realised One Born Every Minute was back on TV. Not that I’m a huge HUGE fan (there’s way too many inductions and not enough hypo birthing for my liking!). But there was nothing else on. I turned it over and explained to Mum and Dad what the programme was about. I was met with lots of raised voices “oh I don’t want to watch this, I don’t want to watch this… your Dad won’t either. Turn it off! Turn it off!” Ok Mum.
  4. And in even more TV related news (I don’t watch that much, honest), it appears I may be over the hill. We were sat watching Eastenders. To which one of the youths said “how’s it hanging?”. My Dad said “is that what they say these days?” Before I could answer, my Mum pipes up with “She won’t know, she’s moved on.” Er RUDE?! Thanks Mum.
  5. Finally, whilst on the bus into York, two strangers told me how gorgeous Miss Belle is. I mean I know she is, but it’s always nice when a stranger tells you so too! I felt so proud.

Have a lovely weekend. The three and a half hour drive has tired me out! We have Matt’s friends arriving for the weekend later tonight and plans to go out tomorrow. Are we the only ones who are constantly busy!?!

    We loved The Crown and binged on that series in one weekend. I’ve heard loads about The Walking Dead, so you’ll have to let me know if it’s any good. Oooo we made some easter nests this week too, so yummy! Nope we are always busy too!

    You have been busy Susie and always a good excuse for an afternoon tea. I don’t normally like Walking Dead type programmes but I love it, it really is good try giving it another go. Totally agree with your comment on inductions on (One born every minute) did you do hypno birthday when you had your daughter ??I did it with both mine throughout pregnancy and birth and had two very simple births …my mum always says you were sooo calm. Enjoy your time with your family visiting this week xxx

    Sounds like a lovely week. Yaay to staying with family. I loved the Crown but I could watch The Walking Dead. It scared me too much and gave me nightmares. I was only able to watch a couple of episodes before I had to give-up!

      Hahaha I’m glad it’s not me then! I’ve decided that there’s enough bad stuff in the world, I only really want to watch happy things (or Eastenders!!) x
