After a busy week this one was a lot quieter!
Monday was a bank holiday in England but not one that I got in Northern Ireland. i went to work while my mum and sister brought K and Buster to a Jubilee picnic- they forgot to take photos I missed going to the lighting of the Beacon as MrR had to work and my two were sleeping.
Tuesday was a public holiday due to the Jubilee but as the weather was horrible we didn’t venture too far. Once my two were sleeping I finished off the puppet theatre and puppets. A stomach bug is doing the rounds and I didn’t feel great
Wednesday K was back at school and I was in work.
Thursday – K is six! Happy birthday.
K went to school and Buster was to have gone to his child-minder but he thought he was missing something at home so wouldn’t stay! We collected K from school at 11 and went with Buster and MrR to stand at the side of the lough and await the Olympic torch passing us- it was going on a boat across the lough. The weather was freezing and raining and so we got soaked.
K and Buster then went off for a shopping trip with their Granny and great aunt (my in-laws) and had a fantastic time. k came home like a teenager with at least 6 shopping bags. While they were away I started making K’s cake for her party.
Friday After work I collected K and Buster and went to mum and dads for chippy night, I also took the chance to run to Asda and get cake and party ingredients. Once home I tried to get K and Buster to sleep and then started on teh cake. I finally got to bed at 01:30 after finishing the cake, starting cupcakes (cheating ones), and sorting party bags etc.
Saturday the day of the party! Got up made frosting for cupcakes, cut fruit for Pirate boat, made three extra tutus, steamed floors etc and was still wearing my slippers when the party guests arrived. All went well and everyone had fun. Started to sleep train Buster tonight as he wouldn’t go to sleep despite being tired and after over an hour of lying beside him I was fed up! I sat beside him on a beanbag and after 1 1/2 hours he fell asleep.
Sunday was another unexpected sunny day! we didn’t go too far as my two were tired and grumpy. We visited mum and dads and then came home and painted wooden birdhouses outside. Tonight was night two of sleep training Buster and it only took ten minutes with no tears, however he woke constantly through the night and I ended up sleeping on our large beanbag at the side of his bed.
Another week over and I wonder if the next week will bring many fun days!
