Fast – This Week’s #WOTW and #R2BC

By | May 21, 2015

It’s been quite difficult to think of just one word to sum up this week.  I could have gone for:

Cake – because there’s been plenty of that, the birthday variety

Or

Ache (oooh, that rhymed!) – because Hubbie is still suffering with his back and my bleeding (literally) mouth ulcer still hasn’t gone

Or

Pink – you’ll see why from the photo below.

After lots of thought, there could only be one word and it’s:

 
And here’s why, with some happy, cheerful reasons:

  1.  It was D’s 11th birthday yesterday, 11! The last 11 years have simply whizzed by since she decided to arrive six days early at home.  She’s packed a lot into those years and I’m hoping the next 11 years don’t go by as quickly.

The “pink” comes from the necklace above.  A lovely heart-shaped crystal on a chain, whip as soon as I saw it, knew it would be perfect for D, she loves it! 

2.  The days have sped by too and we’re all looking forward to half term next week, T especially as it means a break from tie-tying.

3.  My pesky ulcer has meant that I haven’t been out jogging yet (in preparation for what I’m hopefully taking part in next April), but I’ve found that jogging on the spot for the requisite time and then walking (aka making a groove in the floor) seems just as effective until afore-mentioned ulcer has healed.  I’ve gone beyond my 10k steps every day too, this might take a downturn next week, T doesn’t like to venture beyond the garden during the holidays.

4.  I’m never really one for stats and blogger tables, I’d rather blog because I enjoy it and it’s my little outlet but, I was pleased to see my badge had changed:

  
Big congrats to the lovely Jocelyn at The Reading Residence as her blog (which I love to read every time it pings into my email) is at number 4!  Very well deserved.
I’m hoping next week won’t go by so quickly and we’ll be reporting an ache-free time (that would be nice!)

Oh shame, you poor thing…. ulcers are so painful and yours sounds horrific. Hope it heals quickly. Happy Birthday to your girl.

Well done for getting past the 10k steps a day, I only manage that if I’m out and about and then it seems easy. Hope the birthday celebrations went well and that looks a gorgeous necklace #wotw

Thanks, it think it helps that I don’t drive, sometimes wish I did when it’s pouring down!

That ranking, and much higher, is much deserved! Now don’t you go worrying about your steps this week, I mean it’s not a competition haha x

Haha, I tell myself every Monday it’s not a competition and then that competitiveness kicks in! X
