Well, that was a wonderful weekend! Thomas wasn’t working so we had lots of time together. We spent time relaxing at home, playing games, toys and enjoying good food. I made us a roast dinner (chicken!), baked oat biscuits and even made pancakes from scratch for Daisy. We spent our whole weekend relaxing and it was absolutely fantastic. It made a really nice change and I even got a little bit of work done in the evening when Daisy slept through. This weeks Living Arrows post, Living Arrows 40/53, is now live.

Living Arrows 40/53 - Daisy playing in the shopping centre

We visited our local shopping centre on Friday and Daisy was thrilled to see they had new toys. They’ve replaced the Iggle Piggle toy, and other similar ones, with Bing, a pink car, this super cool ride and a recycling truck. Daisy was really excited, as she has started to enjoy these toys again! I know they are a bit of a waste of money, to most people, but Daisy loves them and I don’t mind £1 every week or two.

It really was such a wonderful weekend. We spent lots of time together and we all got to complete the activities we enjoy. I had two baths and used a nice face mask. I even made time to book a hair appointment and a few self-care things for the coming weeks. There are just six weeks until our next trip to Centerparcs so we are getting lots done around home – including Christmas prep! This week I will be baking mince pies, and I’m really looking forward to it. I’m also going to make Daisy a few gluten-free ones and hope that she likes them!

Have a great week!

    Not a waste of money at all if Daisy loves them ! My two loves these rides, it’s like a mini trip to the fair for them. It sounds like you had a lovely family weekend, those are the best type of weekends I think. Homemade mince pies sound delicious, have fun x

    Oh it’s lovely when you can afford a little pamper time, I am certainly in need of this.

      Make some time for yourself! It doesn’t need to be long – even half hour is amazing x

    It sounds like you’ve had a fab time. I managed to be a parent for 4 and a half years before I ever put any money in one of those rides! Toby and Gabe still love just sitting in them and pressing the buttons anyway 🙂 #LivingArrows

      Haha nothing wrong with being frugal!

      I remember a year or two back a woman telling her child they were a waste of money (they pretty much are tbf) and Daisy was horrified! She couldn’t even speak then but her face was pure shock!

    I definitely think we all need a weekend every now and again relaxing to be honest. Its difficult juggling work and something I struggle with. But it sounds like you got it all planned perfectly xx

      I struggle as well love, it’s hard isn’t it! I feel like I’m on top of the World one day, then drowning the next ! x

    You are always so productive, getting so much done but managing to relax and have quality time together too. Life goals right there x

      I’m trying to find the balance. You know how it is though – one day amazing, one day drowning!
