A Week With Us 2nd-8th July 2018

Welcome to A Week with us….A weekly update and insight to a week in the lives of our family of 7.

This week has once again been mega busy!

The weather has been amazing! Looks like we are getting a Summer after all.


A Week With Us 2nd-8th July 2018

We have had both Mckenzie and Caelan’s Sports Days. Unfortunately their primary school has a strict No Photograph policy, so I was unable to take any photos. Which is a shame. But the school do provide a photo of your child. But it’s not the same. I was hoping for pictures of them during the events and crossing the finish lines.

However, I did get photos  of Cohen and our mindees watching sports day and having fun rolling down the hill in the school field! I love seeing their faces  light up at such simple activities.

Cameron had 2 school trips this week.

One was to a University day. Cameron takes  part  in a lot  of  these days as he is on his school Gifted and Talented register.

The other was a GCSE History trip to Leeds, about medicine and history.

Harvey had an appointment at the orthodontist about his braces. I was really interesting to see his x-rays as Harvey has a huge overhang. He needs some dental work to pull his top teeth and move his bottom teeth  forward. Then have his teeth straightened. In all, it’s going to take 24-30 months. I’m sure it will be worth  it. a week with us


On Friday, we had a very quiet day childminding so we took Cohen and our mindees to a park for a picnic and a run about. As much as I love the heat, I am really conscious of keeping the kiddies in my care out  in the sun for  too long.


Cohen and I went to visit my Mum’s grave. I have to admit, it’s not something I do very often. I was in the area, so it would be rude not to.

We’ve had a fairly quiet weekend.

On Saturday we had another photoshoot for another newspaper story. My boys played up something rotten! Honestly, I could’ve rang their necks! Caelan and Cohen wouldn’t for love nor money do as  their told. It was so hot and clammy. I was in full hair and make up. As soon as the photographer left I was straight back into my comfy clothes!

On the evening, Matthew and I let the boys stay up a little bit later. We all sat in the garden. Matthew and I had a cheeky few drinks. Which is something we never do at home. I was great to just relax and watch our boys play together.

Sunday is our shopping day. So first thing we went food shopping. We decided to have a spur of the moment Barbecue. Well, why not? We’ve got to make the  most out of this weather, don’t we?

My Dad joined us. It was lovely to have all 7 of the men in my life, together. I’m sure my Mum would be looking down on me, laughing at the fact that i’m surrounded by boys and men! Hahaha!

The perfect way to end the week! 

Thanks for reading and I hope you come back for another WEEK WITH US

    Wow, I’m tired just reading about your week. How do find the time to cram it all in?! I’m shattered all of the time and we’re just a family of three! #TriumphantTales

    Your week sounds very busy but lots of fun. My daughter had her first sports day this year and it was so sweet. We were allowed to take photos and videos but obviously can’t share them. I’m hoping parents don’t abuse that and ruin it for the future but I’m sure they won’t.
    You really are surrounded by men. A stark contrast to me who seems to be surrounded by females 😉
    Thank you for joining us at #BigPinkLink

    What a shame you couldn’t take photos of your kids at Sports Day. It’s so sad that we live in a day and age where something as innocent as this is prevented. Thanks for sharing with #TriumphantTales.
