Back to normal. #WotW

This week my Word of the Week is:


We're back into a routine almost and things are back to normal after Christmas....

Becky got her new tablet on Monday....She was so excited to get it and spent Monday afternoon putting all her things and apps she uses back on it....Even thought it was nearly the same as her old one the camera is better which she is very happy about....She likes to take photos of everything but her old one used to let her down.....


The kids went back to school on Wednesday which means they're back to going to bed at their normal bedtime which they're not happy about. During the holidays they were staying up until about 10pm.....They're getting up early which they're not happy about....We hardly saw before 9am during the holidays. There is homework and reading to do and you guessed it they're not happy about that either....lol

Apart from not wanting to go to sleep on Tuesday night things have gone pretty well.....Becky was a bit tired on Wednesday and ended up going to bed just before 7pm. She read for a bit and was asleep when I checked on her at 8pm which is really early for her.....

This week Ellie has decided that she likes to draw....She has never been one for sitting down and drawing and colouring in earlier in the week she has started drawing and hasn't stopped....


Stu has had to go to the doctors this week about his sore shoulder....It's been bothering him for weeks and he rang expecting to wait for an appointment because it wasn't urgent. He rang at 10am and was being seen by half past. Amazing and not normal at all. It's nothing to worry about. He's just been over exercising and it's swollen....He was given tablets and told to rest it which isn't going to happen yet due to his job....He has got a week off in a couple of weeks though. He had 3 weeks to take before the end of March so he's taking a week a month for the next 3 months....

We have had a normal week with not much happening.....It has been nice to have an uneventful, boring week. I think we needed it after the excitement of Christmas and New Year.

  1. Sometimes getting back to normal is quite nice eh? Hope stu's shoulder gets better. Hate injuries! I remember getting into drawing as a kid and once you start, you don't stop! Xx #wotw

  2. I love Ellie's drawings. My girls love to draw and get through a ton of paper! Becky looks happy with her tablet :) Sorry to hear about Stu's shoulder though, that sounds horrid. I hope the pills work and he gets some relief. x

      Stu's shoulder feels better already. Not totally better but getting there.

  4. I think a normal where nothing much happens is needed after the madness of Christmas. Ellie's drawings are lovely, my little girl is always drawing and writing it's her favourite thing to do. #WotW

  10. What great drawings!
    There is certainly something to be said about getting back into a routine and getting back to normal, although I do also miss the little ones being at home. It's very quiet without them!
    Best of luck for the first full week back at school. It's the same for us too, and I think it's going to be hard on everyone!
