It’s been another one of those weird weeks where the weather was gorgeous all weekend so I was able to frolic in the son with Jenson and then when my working ‘week’ started (sorry not sorry) I was in bed every night with Jenson with no evenings to myself. I find it easier to cope with if I resign myself to that at the start of the week so it’s not all bad. Here’s a look at what I’ve been loving this week.
Read: I’ve started on some titles I won in a blog giveaway around Christmas time. First up is I’m Not Your Manic Pixie Dream Girl by Gretchen McNeil, mainly because I love films with MPDGs. Although now I love the characters less because they’re so anti-feminist, existing within a story just to serve the male lead and without a real plot of their own. How did I not notice that before?! I love young adult books and read them shamelessly. Definitely give this one a go, especially if you’re a bit of a film geek.
Watched: Jenson had his first cinema trip before the age of two – I’m pretty impressed with that! I took him to see the Peppa Pig: My First Cinema Experience with a friend and her daughter. He’s such a fidget arse that he didn’t sit still until the end credits. Fortunately there was only one other mother and child there and they were happy to make friends with him. I also saw Me Before You on Netflix. I didn’t find it as hard-hitting as the book but Sam Claflin is rather dreamy.
Heard: Jenson has had Ed Sheeran’s Divide on pretty much since release; he’s forever scrolling through my phone and bringing videos up on YouTube. He’s also sort of started singing along – he copies the ‘mmmm’ in Shape of You and beat boxes to the drum intro to Dive. Super cute!
Made: Pancakes! I had an epic lazy day (by my post-baby standards) last Friday and made super-scrummy blueberry and lemon pancakes. I might have added too much clotted cream…
Wore: What is this weather doing? As soon as the nice weather hits I’m all about skater dresses and leggings but the weekend lulls me into a false sense of security and I’m left freezing my ass off at the bus stop on the way to work.
And lastly: I’m on annual leave next week! I’ve got a few exciting things lined up, including having my dad over for dinner and taking Jenson to the zoo and aquarium. I might fit in my first Jelberts of the season too. Fingers crossed for some lie-ins!
