A week of fun! #WotW

This week my Word of the Week is:


This past week has been the first week of our Easter holidays. Every day we have done something fun and the girls have loved it.

On Monday we had a lazy day....A great way to start the holidays. The girls played on the computers and tablets. I caught up on the housework and we didn't really do much. It was lovely just to relax. We still had fun doing nothing!

Tuesday was our baking day. The girls made cupcakes without much help from me then we went to meet Stu from work and we had a look around the market and the charity shops, bought more Easter eggs and treated ourselves to a pick and mix from Wilko's.


 Wednesday we made play dough. The girls made it themselves and thought it was brilliant.....Ellie played with it all day!! She only stopped to go to the toilet and to eat and even then she was reluctant. Playing with the play dough was more important. hehehe


 Yesterday we went to the park....It was still quite chilly so it meant the park was practically empty. Hooray! On the way home we called into the sandwich shop for an all day breakfast which was a real treat....Then the kids made pizza for their tea....


Today we are having an Easter egg hunt....I have gone way over the top with Easter eggs but I'm sure the girls won't say no to chocolate. hehehe

I do love the school holidays....I get to spend quality time with my girls doing lots of fun things....We have another week of the holidays and we already have a few plans including family coming to visit, a trip to the beach and a trip to the cinema.....

  1. Sounds like you've had a good week. We did some baking yesterday but with all the Easter treats I think we will need to complete another session next weekend.

  5. What a lovely week you're had, and like
    you I do just love the school holidays. Having the kids at home is so much fun.
    Sounds like you have the balance between lazy days and activity just about right. Baking is also something we love doing together, too. Hope your Easter egg hunt was fun!!

  6. Isn't it wonderful when they do most of the making and baking by themselves? I've just about trained mine to clear up afterwards too, but that's still work in progress. Your week sounds the perfect way to unwind after a school term. Your two girls look like they get on so well. Hope your Easter egg hunt went well. Ha! The idea that children will turn down chocolate. #wotw
