No need for the Sunday papers 8

I hope you have had a good week.  This last week was out first back at school after the half term and I have really missed my boys, but I have also needed the quiet time, as I have had tonsillitis too.   We have been getting back in to routine and Mini was wonderful at swimming this week, picking up his stage 2 and 5 meters badges.  He enjoys it so much more since we got him some prescription goggles. Sit down and let me introduce you to some fantastic blogs.

Picture of me and my brother hanging on the wall, I just can not bring myself to take down

This week has also been quite a challenge for me personally.  We are nearing the end of clearing out mums house and instead of getting easier it just seems harder each time I visit.  I would keep it all if I could, but I just don’t have the storage, so this time I came hoe with a wind chime for each of the boys bedrooms, both immediately noticed them and said they were Grandma’s door chimes.

The mail keeps arriving, even though I have notified them of Mums death

There seems to have been a distinct change in the weather and Spring is nearly upon us.  Becky at Baby Budgeting has a fab ebook out (well if her others are anything to go by) for under fives, 50 ideas for a sensational spring on a budget, all for only £1.50.

    I think about you all the time Jen, and how hard it must be for you without your mum. It must be so very hard to keep visiting and removing your mums life piece by piece like that. Not sure whether it will get easier when the house is finally cleared or not. Big hugs sweetie xx
    I will pop over and take a look at your Sunday recommendations xx

    Keep the picture where it is, if it pains you too much to take it down. Or take it down and find a new place for it?
    Poor you to have tonsillitis on top of everything else – sounds a bit like a sign that you have to take it slow and to take good care of yourself.
    Lots of love. I am sure it will get better with time. xx
