Our Everyday Life: Easy Like Sunday Morning

Thanks to everyone for commenting on My Name Is… post. On Saturday I had good intentions to respond to your kind comments, organise my blog for the plans I have in store, to read the wonderful blogs with informative topics, to write better and to respond to emails but I lack in all of them. I felt ill every time I sat in front of the laptop. Instead I read books and used my iPhone to comment on IG – you can find me there every few hours, I feel connect with IG than Twitter.

Sunday morning I was exhausted. I couldn’t face going to church, so at 10am, while baby boy was napping and toddler girl was out and about with daddy {AOI riding her bicycle in the university tunnels} , I went back under the covers and took it easy like a Sunday morning

In general the week was good. I decided to challenge myself by giving up bread or wheat. Instead for breakfast I had porridge, quick oat and smoothies.

Monday daddy took AOI to the swimming pool after breakfast. Tuesday I took the children to another French Playgroup, sometimes is so tempting to just give up but it’s the easiest escape. Going to playgroup and having AOI learn to take part in an organise activity will be helpful when she goes to preschool in a year's time. Plus she likes languages and she shows interest in French when we are at home.

Wednesday we all went to do the weekly food shopping. I wasn’t in the frugal mood but we still managed to stay within budget.

Also this week AOI did #2 in her potty spontaneously, we were so proud of her – this is parenthood for you. Thursday at playgroup the children were not in the mood for snack. But it was so much fun watching them running wild in the play area. I wish I had my big camera with me.

I really wanted to go to bed at a reasonable time that evening, instead I fell asleep midnight. I was tired for the rest of Friday. In the morning AOI told me stories. She amazing and I’ve said this before, but if I’m not fast she will publish her first book before me.

My writer's group is doing great. We’re an Inc and Saturday we held our annual meeting. Daddy took AOI to cycle in the university tunnels.

AOI loves, I mean really loves veggies. Mr. T is so adorable, he smiles and follow us with his eyes as we move about in the house. And these are some of my favourite moments…
