A busy little week, but a lovely one. Birthday parties, potty training, group holiday organisation and photography have made it a busy one, but fun nonetheless. I have been up to my eyeballs, but managing to stay afloat thanks to my trusty notebook. I instagramed my little homemade planner yesterday and got quite a response... I'm thinking there's a blog post in the pipeline there!
Watch this space!
In the meantime, here's what we've been up to this week!
While I am nearing the end of "Memoirs of a Geisha", Ava and I have started our evening routine again of reading a chapter of a "big girl" book together most nights. Right now we are ploughing through that gem of a children's classic "My Naughty Little Sister" and she is lapping it up! She grins and giggles and gasps her way through every chapter, and is just such a fun little reading buddy to have! If you have little girls, you must get hold of these books in any way you can... they are just such fun, innocent, hilarious little stories and we are devouring them!And to be honest, if you have little boys, "Bad Harry" is a pretty fun character too!
Is anyone else loving Poldark?? We started watching it at a friends recommendation last week, and are now totally hooked! Loving all the drama on TV at the moment... I don't think I've been into this many programs at once since I was about 12!

Shirts... yup... I'm loving the open shirt over white long-sleeved top at the moment. I think I've gone for three different varieties this week... denim, checked and cowboy(/girl)... it's also nice to be able to wear some of my nice non-maternity clothes again, as wearing another top underneath means it doesn't matter that it doesn't do up over my ever growing bump!
I've also thoroughly enjoyed wearing clothes hung out to dry and collected in by my three year old. She is becoming quite the little homemaker, and I'm not going to pretend I discourage her... its lovely to have a helping hand when I'm hanging out the washing... although she's clearly learning from her Mother. When collecting in the washing yesterday she called Heidi over and said "You can collect the pegs little Heidi... that's right... you're my little helper, aren't you Schnucki?"
Kind of made my heart melt!
I've not listened to much this week... aside from the usual children's accompaniments! My car CD at the moment is "No Other Name" by Hillsong which I'm loving...
We have been hosting a lot this week, which has had the girls and I spending our afternoons in a flurry of flour and up to our arms in cake-mix, but who's going to complain about that?!
Earlier on this week, one of my lovely friends popped over with a "just because" present and a cute little card... I am so thrilled to bits with this little pressie and can't wait to use them for our newest addition! I'm sure there will be plenty of Instagram evidence of their use! *apologies in advance for the babyspam* She got them from this gorgeous little independent company called "Little Maldod"... why not go and check them out??
Wishing you all a wonderfully relaxing weekend!
