This week has also seen sore throats and colds which have resulted in disturbed nights, tired people and tears. But at the same time there has been a calmness in the twins since Joseph has returned to school.
Here is our week in pictures...
Monday 1st September 2014
On Monday we said goodbye to this lovely view. This was the view we had each morning and I loved standing outside, first thing, just taking in the fresh air and peacefulness. When we got home we collected Dotty from the cattery. I hadn't realised how much we had missed her until we collected her.
Tuesday 2nd September 2014
Whilst we were away I treated myself to a few Elemis products. I have never spent so much on skincare but this is my attempt to start looking after myself more and doing something for me. So on Tuesday I started by having a bit of a pamper evening.
Wednesday 3rd September 2014
My auntie recently gave the twins a little bench which was her grand children's. My dad has been busy restoring it and he got it finished while we were away and left it as a surprise in our garden. On Wednesday the twins played in the garden and loved taking a rest on their bench. Joseph returned to school on Wednesday. He is now in year 5 and growing up quickly,
Thursday 4th September 2014
On Thursday I decided to go out and I took the twins to Costa. This is something which I have never done on my own before. It would either be a success or disaster! I am delighted to say that it was a success, they were so good. They sat and had a babyccino and biscuit while I enjoyed a cappuccino and flapjack. It was so lovely, we will definitely be doing it again!

Dotty makes us all chuckle so much. She is a cat who is full of character. I had to take this picture of her sitting on the hubby's bedside table taking a drink. We went for a ride out to see the hubby during his lunch break today. We also saw my mother in law so we had a busy afternoon!
Saturday 6th September 2014
Saturday I woke up full of cold and with a sore throat. After getting up the hubby looked after the children so that I could go back to bed. After doing a bit of baking I was exhausted so he took the children shopping so that I could get some rest.
