The Week That Was [18/1/16]

Welcome to the second week of the Week that Was. I hope this is going to be a slow burner and grow as I love reading what everyone has got up to. If you know anyone who has a round up post then shout and let them know they can link it up here. We are open until Wednesday – the more the merrier. So, on with my week:

The Week That Was…At Home.

I have had a really nice week actually. I had my first Slimming World weigh in and lost 5.5lbs! I was really chuffed. I have started back doing the couch to 5k app again with my sister and am really enjoying it. I’ve stuck on plan too but am not expecting such a huge loss tomorrow but a loss is the right direction.


I met up with Jess from Mummy of Boy Girl Twins on Wednesday and it was so lovely. We had tried before Christmas but people were poorly so it was great to finally do it. She doesn’t live all that far from me and it’s always great to meet up with another twin Mom as they just get it! Her house is just amazing – she has amazing décor taste and is just lovely. My girls were very taken with her two – P1 kept saying “I go see my friends” Too cute.

We went for a meal yesterday for my sisters birthday. We went to our favourite little pub for Sunday lunch – the food is amazing. The meat is so tender and about an inch thick – no scrimping at all, delicious. It did meant I strayed off plan but it was just one meal and I had no pudding which is unheard of. 

The Week That Was…On the Blog.

It’s been another brilliant week. My post about Places Not to Take a Double Buggy was the Netmums blog of the day. So many people have said they can relate to this as double buggies are such nightmares! There were some very interesting comments on the Facebook page too – so glad I can just laugh them off.

I had two awesome giveaways launch this week on the blog; there are five sets of Snazaroo face paints to be won and also a family ticket to see Peppa Pig live – check them both out.


My favourite post of the week came from my lovely friend Lucy from Mrs H’s Favourite Things who announced her pregnancy! She has had a very tough road to get here so this rainbow baby is going to be incredible treasured. I look forward to seeing the journey and wish you a happy and healthy pregnancy. So happy for you.

I also hit 5000 Twitter followers and 2000 Instagram followers which was lovely! 

The Week…Ahead.

Today is my sisters birthday! Will have to pop and see her today with her present – the joys of having a January birthday. It’s also the schools bonfire on Thursday. Yes that does sound bizarre doesn’t it? But it was cancelled on actual bonfire night due to bad weather so has been rescheduled. I’m anticipating that it will be FREEZING but there’s a prosecco bar – need I say anymore?! I have my second weigh in tomorrow and I have complete week 1 of the couch to 5k app so am looking forward to starting on week 2.
