My Life with S

Reasons to be Cheerful


Happy Thursday! Today I have only one week left of being mummy to a two year old – S turns 3 next week! And of course, before that, we have the Easter weekend! So basically after today we’re looking at a week of treats and fun… but no chocolate eggs for me since I’m going sugar free. So here are 3 things I’m grateful for this week…

The Bobby Van – A lovely man came around earlier this week and fitted a high security lock on my front door. I think I’m actually going to write a post about it all because I had no idea they even existed until he turned up.

Getting on Top of my Work – Weirdly, I seem to be on top of my work – which is strange, because I spent the first half of the week panicking that I would spend Easter weekend struggling to catch up with work instead of playing with S.

Birthday Shenanigans – This week I managed to organise most of S’s birthday presents and begin planning a cake. I had been worried I wouldn’t have enough money to get her the gifts I wanted to get, but in true Vicky style, I managed to pull it together almost at the last minute!
