How are you all this week? The husband is off in the windy city of Chicago this week whilst I hold the fort at home as usual. Caitlin is off to the Riverfront Theatre in Newport to rehearse for the school play – Shakespeare’s Much Ado About Nothing and Ieuan is excited about his upcoming trip to Llancaiach Fawr, the Tudor manor near Nelson, South Wales.
And I am actually off somewhere this week too – for a pampering session at Mwah in Cardiff where I’ll be having the works, hair, makeup and nails. I can’t remember the last time I had any sort of spa or pampering day so look out for my review next week.
The husband has been coaching Caitlin for her cycling proficiency in a couple of weeks time and she has to get to grips with using the gears on her bike and steering it one handed. Ieuan is feeling a little left out at the moment I think but we’ve reassured him that his turn will come.
In the meantime, it’s back to football with the Penarth Town Under 10s and braving the cold and rain. We have been spoiled with quite a few beautiful Saturday mornings though. I understand that things are far more social and organised in the US – with the preparation of lots of ‘tailgating’ snacks and drinks to keep all the spectators happy and toasty. I had thought of a hipflask filled with Stones Ginger Wine but I’m not sure that’s acceptable football mum behaviour.
In honour of cleaning guru Mrs Hinch, I have had more than a cursory flick round with a duster this week but I think, given the state of the house, it’s going to take a rather lengthier deep clean. Don’t forget to check out lots of cleaning ideas on my cleaning tips Pinterest board.
And don’t forget my giveaway from Red Candy – a Poison Whiskey decanter and 2 Doomed shot glasses. There are plenty more fabulous giveaways in the pipeline so don’t forget to bookmark my giveaways page.
