Another busy week has passed, where does the time go? I’ve had a lovely week and most of the time forgotten to take pictures. But you definitely have to just live in the moment sometimes! I’m really enjoying recording my week in pictures as it’s nice to look back and enjoy the little things which fill every day life.
Here are a few of the little things we did this week that I did manage to catch on camera…
Having two kids can be a bit tricky at times, especially with a 5 year age gap. Spending most of my time at home with Lila means it’s always a treat top get Jess all to myself. At the beginning of the week Rob took Lila out and I had a whole afternoon with Jess. We popped to the playground and she showed off her amazing monkey bar skills and we did a little shopping for stuff for her school project, followed by a cheeky McDonald’s.
With the teacher’s strike on Wednesday, Jess was off school so we had a really lazy morning in our PJs and had lots of yummy pancakes for breakfast. The girls like it with sugar and lemon, but I like lots of maple syrup.
Our cat Oscar joined us with a little saucer of milk as a treat, which the girls loved.
The rest of Wednesday was spent working on Jessica’s school project, which was to make a model pyramid. We used all sorts of things to make it including foam board and papier-mache. I wish I’d remembered to take a picture of the finished article as it looked amazing. We make a little lake, some palm trees, a scribe and a little mummy!
On Friday night I met Fay for a much-needed trip to the pub, and had a berry Bulmers. It was great to have a catch up with my best friend.
On Saturday we popped to a local Greek food shop and picked up lot’s of gorgeous fruit and veg, as well as lot’s of dips, olives and pitta. The food was amazing, and much fresher and cheaper than the supermarket. Remember to support local small shops and businesses!!!
We also popped to Mitcham Common as I said in yesterdays outfit post. It was such a lovely day and Rob did a little fishing while Lila and I fed the geese. After that we popped home for some lunch and went out again to get presents for our mums for mother’s day. I won’t say what I got as I haven’t seen my mum yet!
Today was mothers day here in the UK, so as a special treat we went to Afters in Tooting for some very big ice creams. It was the first time I had been with Rob and the girls and they all really enjoyed their yummy desserts.
The rest of the day was spent relaxing at home before a quick trip to the local playground and a big pizza takeaway in the evening.

Joyful Mother’s Day wishes!!! Ours falls in May here in Canada.
It’s awesome that you have a local Greek grocery store nearby. Greek food is amongst my favourite cuisines in the whole wide world.I’d be a regular for sure if I had a similar shop around these parts.

I like how you are always supporting smaller businesses.
I’m a Londoner, who has since moved away from the hustle and bustle, but I always used to pass Afters in Tooting on my way home from work and often lusted after their desserts… I never actually had one though. The images I have seen from you lead me to believe they are yummy!
I hope you had a lovely Mother’s Day.

Thank you! Their icecreams are amazing, I think it could become a bit of a habit! xxx
