5th March - 11th March 2016 - One Picture Everyday for One Year

This week has been a hard week. It has been full of worry and upset. The week seems to have gone on forever. I have had a few days away from my blog to have time with my hubby and reflect on life in general. To be completely honest as I write this post I simply cannot think what else has happened during the week but I am sure that the pictures will prompt memories.

Here is our week in pictures...

Saturday 5th March 2016

When Mother's Day comes round the hubby always buys me a little treat. This year I got this lovely bottle of gin!

Sunday 6th March 2016

This Mother's Day we had a lazy day together. The hubby cooked dinner and we just spent time together at home. The children spoiled me with flowers, a chocolate shoe and some Pooh bear pyjamas. I love what is written on my pyjamas, "How do you spell love? You don't spell it, you feel it".

Monday 7th March 2016

On Monday the hubby got called to the hospital for his father. It was a long night of worry. But Joseph, as last week, was a god send. He helped with the twins and even volunteered to help at bedtime.

Tuesday 8th March 2016

This was the only picture that was taken on Tuesday. I bought lamb for my Easter Lamb Stew. After I had been shopping the day got harder. It turned into a very hard, sad day. My father in law passed away. The only comfort that we truly get is knowing that he is at peace.

Wednesday 9th March 2016

On Wednesday I received this lovely Easter hamper from Aldi. The chocolate was certainly a much needed treat.

Thursday 10th March 2016

This Easter egg had to be opened on Thursday. At the moment the diet has certainly been put on hold. There really are more important things to worry about at the moment.

Friday 11th March 2016

Friday was spent with my mother in law. I am still amazed and in awe of her strength.

I hope that you have had a good week. It is at times like this that we reflect about life and realise that the time that we have together is so delicate and precious. Please take some time to tell those closest how much you love them.

As always I am sharing with...
