So what has the last seven days had in store for me, well last Saturday saw my first ever venture to a ballet. Off to the Lyceum Theatre with my Mum, sister and niece to see the Nutcracker, it twas very good, lots of jumping and leaping and kicking of legs - but apparently that's what ballet is all about. Not sure if I'd want to go to another one but I certainly enjoyed this one and with the Christmas tree at the beginning reminding me that we aren't much out of the festive season I must admit I did enjoy it.
Next grateful is the verbal errors my Mum occasionally makes, her need to keep talking about the Tin Soldier in the ballet had us giggling, despite the fact he was very obviously the Nutcracker - she wasn't having any of it - love you Mammy!
Visiting family on Sunday was lovely too a cuppa and a catch up nothing finer!
Monday evenings don't normally provide much 'fun' factors (well it is Monday), but it provided us with James Arthur in concert with a support act called Tich, lad was very impressed with himself for getting a photo with her in the interval! James was fab in concert great gig overall just a bit of a long night for a Monday if I'm honest.
Weight watching on Thursday with a one and a half pound loss - taking off that Christmas excess, let's see if we can manage another loss next week.
Tuesday was taking said 13 year old into school so that he could have a 'lie in' we had a good old natter on the way twas lovely!
Now I think said 13 year old is going to rank high up the order this week on my grateful list if I'm honest.
Having had a difficult evening on Sunday he has significantly pulled out the stops this week, I came home to find he'd emptied the dishwasher and refilled without being asked.
Finding the washing bin - he did - I almost fainted!
He also made us a cuppa on Wednesday night complete with teapot, sugar bowl, milk jug, tea cups and saucers! He did an awesome job. He also helped cook tea a couple of nights running - so high up this week is my fabulous teenager - thank you sweetie it's meant the world!
That my lovely people is my lot for this week, I hope your week has been fabulous too, if you fancy joining in, blog it, come back link it and we'll come and visit, don't forget to comment so I know that you've linked up (brain like a sieve), I hope you have a truly beautiful weekend and week ahead.
I'll leave you with a layout of said 13 year old! I finally found a use for that paper!
