This morning I was going to share a recipe with you.. For a Baileys Cream Pie. BUT we haven’t yet tasted it and although it looks incredibly good I can’t share it until I’m sure it tastes great too. So that will be up tomorrow. Today I’m just going to tell you about my week in food and family.
It’s been a difficult week. Andrew was away for four days and I underestimated just how much I would miss him being around. The girls were typically feeling a bit lost without him ( much like me ) and were whiny, clingy and generally hard work. Izzy had a meltdown in school and Chloe just would not sleep. Luckily I did have help from my family but I don’t want to repeat that anytime soon. It’s just ten days now until Chloe goes into hospital for some investigative procedures and if I’m honest I’m pretty worried about it. She seems to be in a great deal of pain nearly every night and it’s not pleasant to see. Hopefully something which can be easily fixed will show when investigated and she can start to be a normal, happy toddler again.
Despite this there were brief moments of pleasure and accomplishment, moments where I watched my girls and how close they have become and couldn’t help but smile. Listening to Chloe master new words ..and dance moves. Creating new dishes..including this incredibly simple one ingredient Peanut Butter:
Watching Izzy cuddle a rather unresponsive Chloe:
And Izzy experimenting with new hair styles whilst playing over Nannas:
Eating a pastry fresh out of the oven at our local coffee shop:
Seriously savouring Chloe’s afternoon nap:
Finding these beauties for a bargainous 99p:
Totally encouraging Chloe’s Frozen obsession so that I could drink a hot drink whilst still hot and then having to go and give her a little squeeze because her face just lights up when the songs come on:
Receiving some fantastic post including this box of goodies from Degustabox which included goodies from Kinder, Schwartz, Nandos, Cookies Bakery, IdrinQ, Barry’s Tea, Veetee, Cirio, Wonjo, Kingfisher and Scheckters..it was quite a box this month:
Making Dark Chocolate Baileys Fudge:
As well as the afore mentioned Baileys Cream Pie:
And finally this morning seeing these two having sleepy morning snuggles on the giant bazaar bag we recently received from Beanbag Bazaar which is AWESOME:
And so although we are all incredibly tired today, Izzy has a chest infection and her asthmatic wheeze is back with a vengeance which sucks and Chloe didn’t sleep AGAIN I am trying to look at the things which were good about this week and looking back there were definitely a few things.
How was your week?
