... Good Days ...

The last week has been a good one.
Back from Centre Parcs I was ready to carry on at school and properly get into my studying.
I cut down my hours so now instead of 3 full days I just do half days, so I can spend the rest of the day studying without the boys around.
I'm already ahead.


The boys have gotten the bug for outdoor play again since being on holiday in the woods and every chance they get, they like to be in the garden....even Ru who usually doesn't go out unless its warm.


The twins have been learning about Space this half term and have been really enjoying it and really keen to do extra work at home.
Last weekend they drew a poster of our solar system and then researched how many moons the different planets had.


I changed the top of the hallway table out and replaced an old lamp with some fresh flowers.
It gives the hallway a fresh look and you really cannot go wrong with rainbow coloured tulips!


I've finished two units already and submitted a dummy TMA.
After having my first tutorial I'm really excited to crack on and I can't wait until October when I start my proper degree.
I am really enjoying studying again and writing down notes and reading things that I wouldn't usually read.
The fact that it means I can buy more stationery with out being moan at is awesome!



This week has seen the twins and Ru join a martial arts club and get their first ever badge!
The twins also joined a local football club too.
Their little social life is really starting to bloom!


After finishing my last book I've been on the hunt to replace it and came across Eleanor Oliphant is Completely Fine.
I only started it the other day and I'm already zooming my way through it.
It's so strange at the moment that I just can't put it down and I'm desperate to know more about Eleanor.


Ru has been noticing the Sonny Angels that are on his shelf and has started playing with a few of them, and even though I really wish they were in my room and he wasn't playing with them I decided to treat him too two new ones.

They were half price so it really was a bargain.
I adore these cute little babies and Ru does actually play really nicely with them and alway makes sure they go back up on their shelf once he's done.
He's also rather protective of them and will not let anyone else touch them.



The days that Ru was only at nursery for half a day I made sure to put my books away and do something fun with him.

We played his happy land train play set on the Tuesday and on Thursday we made Rice Krispy cakes and made him a robot costume out of cardboard boxes!



He enjoyed making the cakes with me but enjoyed licking the bowl more.
We also got him some medication to help him go to the toilet.
As he's currently started to withhold his poo and can go a week and sometimes a bit more.
He will stain his pants a little but won't actually do a proper movement, so it was getting a bit much 
and I could see the distress he was starting to get in.

The doctor was fantastic and talked me through everything over the phone and then sent the prescription of to boots for me to collect in the morning.
If it doesn't help we will then have to get Ru to see the doctor in person.


I also treated myself to some pamper time and got a gel manicure.
It wasn't until afterwards that we both noticed the colour I had chose matched my cardigan.


What have you been up to this week?
