Five On Friday.

This week has gone so fast. James' school didn't go back from half term until Tuesday so in my head I keep thinking it's only Thursday. I'm not complaining. A short week works for us..

Five On Friday..

1// Poor Emilie has had a tough week. She didn't seem herself all day Tuesday. She was grouchy and clingy and I thought that it may be her three teeth that are still coming through. Late that afternoon though she developed a fever and just sat in my lap for over an hour cuddling me. She refused her bedtime milk and at 6pm I asked her if she wanted to go to bed. She nodded and waved.. Poor girl. She seems a lot better now but those teeth are still bothering her.

2// James decided that he wanted to learn how to weld with Daddy.. It was so cute although my Mummy heart was terrified the whole time! He loved it though :)

3// I started reading Jodi Picoult's new book, Leaving Time, yesterday and I cannot put it down. I love her books and she is definitely my favourite author. Her writing is faultless and her story lines are gripping.

4// This week the weather has turned. It is bitterly cold and the school runs at 8.30am are not fun! It was so weird with it still being so warm in October but now I'm kind of wishing for Spring already! 

5// With everything that has been going on the past few weeks (that's for another post) I have been struggling with my anxiety. This morning I gave myself a well needed kick up the backside. I need to stop letting my anxiety control my moods and therefore my life. 

Here's to the end of the week! 


  1. Poor Emilie (but yummy cuddles!)....welding...my, you are brave! Jodi Picoult - love her! Anxiety: big NO! try the meditations that Deepak Chopra and Oprah Winfrey are doing for the next few weeks (google them '21 day meditation challenge'): I do them every day and they really, really help.....

  2. Aww Emilie! James looks so adorable in his welding gear. I hope you are enjoying a restful Sunday evening, Liane :)

  3. I'm a new follower and I just have to say, i LOVE Jodi Picoult! She is my all-time favorite author and I love how her stories truly make me question what I thought I believed. Let me know how you liked her newest book! I'll have to add it to the list :)


Thank you for taking the time to read and comment! I read every single message that is left for me and try to respond to everyone :)
