The year has well and truely started and wow what a weeks it’s been: the world has lost two amazing icons this week in the form of David Bowie and Alan Rickman. Both gone too soon at 69 which really does not seem like any age at all.
Sometime at the end of 2014 we booked a trip to Center Parcs which at the time seemed like an age away, however it finally came around and 4 babies and their parents headed out to a cabin in the woods this week. It could have really gone one of two ways but I’m pleased to say it was awesome and we had a great week.
Nothing so far but today I signed up to take part in a 2016 reading challenge through our local libraries the idea being that each month they recommend a new book to read to push you out of your reading comfort zone and this month it’s Neil Gaiman’s Trigger Warning. Short stories aren’t usually my thing but I guess that’s the point of the challenge.
Also considering I REALLY need to start my dissertation this month, it’s probably exactly what I need as I can dip in and out throughout the month.
Watched & Heard
Grouped together this week as I’ve pretty much been focused on watching my family have fun and hearing plenty of laughter as everyone had a great time. Just what we needed!
We swam every day which the bear loved; she is such a water baby! Soft play was everywhere and we loved exploring even if it was blooming cold!!
Some real progress on a 2016 temperature blanket as the weather had turned decidedly frosty over the past week and greens turn to blues with a row of white mixed in for snow on Wednesday!!
Other than that plenty of memories were made this week.
It’s officially back to reality next week as no more holidays to look forward to until March so in the meantime it’s back to the grind!!
