Hurray! It’s Saturday. It’s actually 8.27am and I’m all alone. Reuben’s catching up with Pokemon, Nancy’s back in bed (she’s taken to waking up around 6am this week, which is fine as I’m already up but it’s making her a bit more tired and grouchy) and Mike’s on a bike ride. So I’m taking this opportunity to look back over the week and see what happened and why I feel so beaten up. Ha!
1. I went back to bootcamp
Oh, that’s why! Yup, I started back at Bootcamp and successfully made it to 3 workout sessions at 7:30am without anyone having a breakdown. The fact Nancy’s been waking early has been a good thing for this as I’m able to feed her and therefore don’t have to use the dreaded breast pump. It also leaves Mike with one less thing to do before the school run. He’s had a busy week at work, so if we can make it work this week, the rest of the 6 weeks will be a synch!
The workouts are hard but I love them and really get that buzz after (I don’t normally when I workout but then I don’t normally work this hard).
2. I’ve listened to some great podcasts
The other bonus of Bootcamp is I’m enjoying listening to podcasts again on my drive in (listened to and loved this from James Altucher about positivity and as a result been introduced to this Youtube channel by Evan Carmichael). Hello brain, I’ve missed you! Plus, the sunrise is so beautiful.
3. My mum came over
I had a lovely day with my mum in the glorious weather on Tuesday. We did a few jobs, ate a lovely lunch, went for a walk and spent plenty of time in the garden. I also put Nancy in this gorgeous dress my mum got her for her Christmas. She loved looking at the patterns. I loved her bare toes!!
4. We went to our first baby class
If it wasn’t for my friend sorting this, I’m not sure when we would have got around to it, but on Thursday Nancy started her first baby class – Rhythm Time. It was so lovely, and has given me so many new ideas for communicating with her and playing with the things around us, other than the constant mum monologue, of course.
Shall we make lunch? Let’s see what’s in the fridge. Oh, bugger all. I’m sure I have a tin of tuna in this cupboard… etc. you know how it goes.
5. The house is nearly finished!!!!
Really this time. We had the last of the carpet go down yesterday and the builders recon they have done everything.
We’ve even had artwork go up. 2 and half years living in this house and we have artwork.
On. Our. Walls.
I know. Get the papers.
