It’s been a pretty non-eventful week in our household, so this week’s listography theme ‘Last week’ has taken some thinking about! http://katetakes5.blogspot.com/

We’re almost at the end of the summer holidays here, so the endless having to keep the 7 year old constantly entertained will cease as school will keep him occupied (it’s been a case of the minute he stops doing something to ‘say what do I do next? I’m bored!) which he says ALL. THE. BLOODY. TIME.


First thing on the list this week was a visit to the good old British seaside.

Armed with buckets and spades me and the 7yr old decided to not just make any old sandcastle, but four sandcastles with turrets, all connected with walls, and a moat running round it. All the time constantly trying to ‘shoo’ the four year old away from it as his favourite game at the beach is pretending to fall over and land on your sandcastle squashing it flat.

It is funny when he does it with a loud pretend sneeze – ‘ACHOO!’ Oh dear, the sneeze was so loud it made me fall onto your sandcastle!’ but not when you’re trying to be clever and build the sandcastle equivalent of Buckingham Palace!

2)We’ve also had the 7 year old’s birthday party this week, as we did it a week early due to it being Bank Holiday weekend this week and would have been a nightmare trying to book anywhere.

He opted for a ten pin bowling party with some friends from school, and a great time was had by all. Well, apart from when the 4 year old won the game (he’s very competitive.) 🙂

3) I finally got some ‘me time’ this week and yesterday me and the husband took ourselves off to the cinema to watch the final Harry Potter movie. Something I’ve been wanting to watch for ages but never had the babysitters to do! Thanks, mother in law. 🙂

Now looking forward to it coming out on dvd so that I can add it to the collection and we’ll have them all!

4) I’ve also been attempting to tidy up the house and sort things out (see previous blog post, it’s like shovelling snow in a blizzard….’ it really isn’t easy when you’ve got a hoarding husband and toys lying all over to break your neck on!

5) I’ve also been on Twitter a lot (nothing new there) trying to promote my blog and general posting, commenting and blog reading. So if you’re on Twitter, follow me and I’ll ‘see’ you over there!

Now just got to think of some things to do with the last week of the summer holidays before they go back to school!
