My Week in Review

Oh my it’s Friday again, I can’t believe how fast this month has flown by. It seems like two minutes ago I was pledging to blog every day and was wondering what on earth I would write about and now I’m at the end of week three and haven’t really struggled yet. I’m so proud of myself so far and I’m sure that my enthusiasm will continue because I’ve started to enjoy this blogging lark a lot more than writing that novel! I never thought that would happen, I can tell you.

I think part of the reason I seem to be falling in love with blogging is the absolutely wonderful community of people out there that offer encouragement and support when you need it most. People who give you a 140 character boost and make you smile when the kids are driving you crazy and you think you may have no hair left by the end of the day. This week I’ve realised how nice and welcoming people can be and I’m so grateful for that.

Aside from this personal journey my week has been a bit of a bumpy one, what with the hubby getting some bad news on the games front, the little one getting the sniffles and a cough that is worsening by the day and the eldest becoming more ‘tween’ every day, I’ve felt like I'm fighting a losing battle. Yet I’ve been sat at the computer screen every day, blogging, venting and receiving such lovely comments and tweets that the week hasn’t seemed so bad. 

My hopes for next week are that the little one gets over his sniffles this weekend, the hubby gets some good news after a trip to London and well, I’m not sure about my tween? Maybe I’ll catch a glimpse of my boy at some point this weekend instead of the grumpy tween that skulks about the house. 

A few mentions here, just to thank these lovely ladies for stopping by my little blog and offering up some love.

Claire, a blogger who's also from Nottingham and has a brilliant creative streak. You should definitely check out her Up-cycled Shoes post.

Kim Carberry over at Northumberland Mam where there was a hair incident this week. Believe me I can relate to this one!

Blue Beret Mum who has some very entertaining cartoons and some fantastic poetry to entertain you.

Tas over at Not my year off where she lists all the places she’d like to visit around the world. There’s some on there that I have visited and definitely some I would love to go.

Thank you ladies and I hope you all have a great weekend. See you Monday!
