Monday we went for a haircut and Isabelle was really annoyed that they wouldn’t wash her hair as she was too small for them to use the basin. It wasn’t particularly relaxing as Isabelle took off her shoes and gave us her best dance routine. Thankfully we were the only ones in the salon so she didn’t spoil anybody but my relaxing experience.
I’ll skip past Tuesday as there was nothing to report.
Wednesday Isabelle lost one of her bottom teeth so she neatly folded it inside a piece of tissue and put it under the pillow for the Tooth Fairy.
That evening I went to the Unmumsy Mum book launch at the Puerto Lounge in Exeter. On the way there I had to dash to the cashpoint so Chris pulled up outside Tesco’s and I jumped out to get some money. The cashpoint was broken so I quickly dashed back to the car, only to find that there was a tray of biscuits on my seat and a woman staring at me looking completely horrified. Chris honking the horn of our car, the car behind brought me back to reality. I apologised to the woman profusely who looked at me as though I was attempting to carjack her and sheepishly made my way back to OUR car. Oops.
The book launch – It was held at the Puerto Lounge which has only just recently opened and was packed with women all waiting to chat to Sarah, the Unmumsy Mum. Sarah sat and chatted about her book unphased by the many questions that were asked of her. She’s refreshingly down to earth and in her own words has no ‘filter’ when it comes to talking about the reality of being a parent. It was a fab night. I even got my book signed!
Unfortunately the naughty Tooth Fairy forgot to visit and so Thursday morning I found a tearful Isabelle clutching her tissue with her tooth still inside so I had to promise to help her make a Tooth Fairy sign when I got home from work so that she wouldn’t forget again.
Ryan and I went to a college open event to look at apprenticeship options. He wants to do a carpentry apprenticeship and the information and the feedback from the people that we spoke to was really positive, so it looks like I’m going to have a Carpenter for a son. At last there’ll be a man about the house that will be able to put up a shelf or other DIY type jobs.
I feel like a proper grown up when I do mothery things like college visits.
We put up this lovely glitter picture for the Tooth Fairy so that she would not forget to visit.
It was my nephews birthday on the Friday so we went for the usual family gathering at their house. I won’t post a picture as he’s 17 so it would be totally not cool to do that.
Saturday Isabelle went to a birthday party in the afternoon. I usually have to stay for all of these kind of things including classes and play dates, but this time round she didn’t want me to stay and in fact told me to get off the dance floor as I was embarrassing her. Hmph!
Saturday night we went out to surprise my sister on her 40th birthday. It was a lovely night with family and friends. Here’s my mum and stepdad attempting a dab!
That was our week. What did you get up to?
