Hello and welcome back to another week of “MyHeartyLife” – an opportunity for us to share in the goodness and positive points of the previous week!
I feel like this week has just flown by, which is great because we are so close to our holiday now (12 days) that I am starting to get just an incy bit excited! I have been buying loads of English treats for my friends and our family in the states, and sorting out the kids wardrobes to see what they will need extra!
I can’t believe though the difference in weather to last week! It’s so crazy how we have gone from a frozen, Winter Wonderland, to a beautiful mild and sunny Springtime feel in a matter of days. I have loved the milder feel, and when I know that it’s here to stay I will be looking forward to packing away big jumpers , feather coats and scarves, and getting out more colourful T-shirts, tops and pumps! I can’t wait to seeing nature come alive again and enjoy the colours of flowers and green fields!
This week I feel grateful for Nathan again. I guess I am always grateful he’s mine, and we have what we do/each other, but when I am having a hard time I am especially grateful for his understanding and general desire to make me smile! This week, with the build up to Mother’s Day (and other things) I have been feeling rather anxious, and so I have been grateful to be able to talk to him – someone who get’s it, and was there – and to have his hugs and reassurance.
I am also grateful for Easter eggs in the shops – I had a sneaky one at the weekend and it was delish!
My biggest success this week was that I have been super organised, and been able to get the kids sorted for our holiday! I have done all of the laundry and taken out what they will need, as well as hitting up Primark, Next clearance and H&M! I have managed to get them a few extra weather appropriate bits for them to add to what still fits, and whilst I didn’t want to have to venture back into the city, it has been nice to get them a few new things (on budget)! I have it all in outfits in a Lidl bag, ready to iron and pack in their cases sometime next week.
Found beauty in…
On Wednesday Alice and I had a lovely little adventure up to Sewerby Park near Bridlington (East Yorkshire) with my longest of friends and her little girl who is 2 months older than Alice. We have been so many times but never fail to have a lovely time! It was sunny, mild, the flowers were blooming and it was a beautiful spot to have a walk and some fresh air. It was so lovely to see the little ones running around together, and for us to catch up and chat. When I see them toddling around together, my hope is that they will find such a great and lasting friendship like that which their mummy’s have with one another!
It was beautiful to see snowdrops in abundance and stroll through the quaint little walled gardens. I always find grand houses and their grounds so beautiful – especially when shared with such great people!
You can link up one post a week that fits into either or all of the “Prompts”, and I ask that you at least comment on mine and one or 2 others too. Kindness costs nothing and a comment on your blog feels amaze!
Please use the #MyHeartyLife on Social media whenever to share the goodness and cheerful moments in your life that day! It might also help when summing up the week into a blog post to link up!
12 days until your holiday, that’s so exciting. Do you think you’ll manage to continue blogging while you’re away? You’ll have so much to say :o)
Congratulations with the packing preparation. I always start putting stuff aside weeks before which G finds non-sensical being a ‘take-10-minutes-the-morning-you-leave” packer!
This is what I love about the #myheartylife linky, reasons to be cheerful and to shout out loud about fab husbands. So important to be with someone who gets you, loves you and hears you without trying to fix anything.
Your day out with Alice sounds lovely and so nice to share it with an old friend. There’s an ease about that which can’t be beaten. Looking forward to #myheartylife 10 when you’ll be just 5 days away from holidaying :o)
