Reasons to Smile - Movies and Me Time

I'm child-free until Saturday night now as the Mini Mes are with their dad for a few days, which means I can pop my feet up, enjoy some chocolate (without needing to share) and dive into some celeb gossip mags while watching a romantic comedy. This however won't be the case as I intend to have a bit of a clear out and a day shopping with my mum for wedding outfits, but the idea is nice all the same. It's funny how I long for some peace yet when I do get some I seem to spend it cleaning and organising things. At least I won't have to deal with bickering for a while anyway. Bonus.



We enjoyed a trip to the cinema yesterday to see Percy Jackson Sea of Monsters which was actually very good for a PG with plenty of action throughout. Orange Wednesdays rock and I even invited my mum along to join us as the freebie.

Tomorrow the balloon festival comes to town so I'm hoping to head along to that. A nice evening out with the Mr and the opportunity to work on my photography skills. I could do with a new camera as I currently only have my mobile but that has been added onto the 'to do' under 101 other things!

Sunday we are off to Lollibop and I'm really excited to be attending again this year. The line-up looks great, especially as we are Skylanders fans and there will be the opportunity to try the new Swap Force game there. If you are a blogger going along and see me, please do come over and say hi, I don't bite unless asked... you may find me in the VIP tent at the meet and greets, probably hyperventilating with excitement more so than the children.


What reasons do you have to be cheerful this week?

  7. Wow, that does sound like a fun-packed week. The best thing that happened for us this week was that we went to Hampton Court and didn't get too lost in the maze. I was sure I would lose a child in there, thankfully that didn't happen!

  9. I think we are all the same, want peace and quiet and alone time, then miss kiddos terribly and get on with the usual household stuff. Hope you a great week x
