I was a little preoccupied last week with adjusting to having three children at school, opposed to one. We had such a lovely summer that as it ended and I knew school edged ever closer, it felt somewhat bittersweet. The girls have spent over a week in reception class and it’s safe to say that despite an initial first day wobble, they’ve taken to it better than I ever could have coped for. I am also trying to get used to being home alone for six hours a day.
After reading that The Highway Rat is going to be on TV this Christmas, I decided I would get us a copy. I’m sure we had it from the library a while back, but I wanted to buy the book so we can read it on the lead up so everyone is aware of it. I also indulged in a few trashy magazines as my husband is away in Norway working for ten days so I have been quite lonely of an evening. I am getting old as I know so little about the celeb world!
I tuned in to watch Liar on ITV and was hooked. I have really gotten into TV lately seeing as my husband has been away so much. I didn’t realise it was a six part series so was pleased, but not quite sure how they’ll be able to string it out for 6 weeks? We shall see. I found it really good although it raises such a huge question for both sides of rape/rape accusations for both parties.
A few weeks ago, I binge watched all of Doctor Foster so am now watching it “in real time” I find myself having to bite my lip throughout as I bloody HATE Simon. He is SO smug and so annoying to watch – hats off to the actor who plays him absolutely spot on to stir up such hatred. I still have the last few episodes of The Crown to get through on Netflix too. So much good TV on at the moment!
I swear I was born in the wrong decade; at 31 my radio station of choice is Smooth FM. I have been having it on pretty much all day when I am at home now I don’t have kids TV on loop. I absolutely love the classics they play and can often be found belting out a mowtown classic at midday.
I definitely think the chance of an Indian Summer have slipped away under a river of rain. I have dug out all my jumpers and have been hibernating under them. This is a favourite that I bought a few weeks ago (apologies for the multiple recycled image of me!)
I got it from a shop in our local town that has been there forever and sells such gorgeous stuff. It’s so soft and I adore the colour too.
I finally made it back to the gym! As regular readers will know, I gained a whopping stone over the summer holidays so it’s been mission lose weight. I am pleased to say I lost 3.5lbs last week and today will be my third gym session this week. I am hoping that this will expedite the weight loss and I’ll see a good number again next Tuesday morning on the scales.
The girls were sent a Barbie styling head so we’ve had lots of fun playing and making up some wacky hairdos. They absolutely love it but lets hope they don’t decide they want pink hair!
I am off to London ON MY OWN on Tuesday! I am off to a Netflix event and am super excited. Quite weirdly, also about travelling on my own. I know for many it’s not something they’d relish in but I am quite looking forward to being carefree, albeit for 24 hours.
