I don’t know if it’s the rare British sunshine or the fact that it was leading up to a Friday pay day, but I seem to have taken a lot of pictures this week.
Here are just some of the favourites I thought I would share with you from the last few days.
The Walsh household has been on a health kick for a while now. When I say household I really just mean my husband. He’s been losing weight through a better diet and exercise since May and hasn’t done badly so far (this week weigh in marks a stone and a half in 8 weeks). He has just started an exercise class called Caveman Training( Google it, I dare you). I was planning to join him but with my recent health problems I wouldn’t be able to do most of the exercises at the moment.
There is one warm-up that they do there that sounded quite interesting – Sally Up.
Going along with the song ‘Flowers’ by Moby, every time it says up you go up. Every time it says down, you go down. It’s usually used for press-ups but I found an alternative squat version which I have been doing since Sunday.
It is nowhere near as easy as it looks. Sally is known as a bitch – and dammit is. After the first two days I devised a stretching routine which has saved my butt – literally. I’ve also been trying to eat healthy(er) than the constant amounts of chocolate I was eating before. Let’s hope I start feeling better soon.
After a few toddler tantrums over the last few days, it has been nice to have quite a few cuddles this week. This is probably the last selfie I’ll get out of him for another month so I’ll treasure it until the next one (even if he is pulling a funny face).
Do you even have days like these?! Where you pop into the kitchen for a drink and come back to total devastation. How do they manage to do it all in under 30 seconds?!
Try to spot the toddler too!!
We even managed a no drama mid-week shopping trip. Although it turned out to be one of these days where you spend a shocking amount of money but end up coming home with hardly anything, I did manage to get some Liquorice tablets to try. I’m still baffled as to why anybody would even think to put liquorice into tablet form but apparently it is going to be good for my blood pressure, as well as a ton of other health benefits so fingers crossed. I also treated myself to a new mascara. I don’t wear make-up very often so even I was surprised that my old one had run out rather than me losing it or it clogging from old age. Plus, a new notebook for all blog related matters never hurt anybody. I was quite proud of my decoration as I haven’t done funky writing since high school. Sadly, it doesn’t look like this now Jay has added his artistic stamp on the front.
And the ‘Jakey’ shoes – because a toddler (or at least my toddler) can never have too many Jake and the Neverland Pirates related items. £9 – what a steal!!
A missed Royal Mail parcel note left me very confused and excited on my way to the sorting office – only to find these smiling faces. Our free samples to take part in ’42 days of summer’ with BritMums and BN biscuits. Look out for the post soon. It’s so exciting to get blog related things. This thing might all be worthwhile in the end.
Although this weather is way too hot for me (I am a lightweight), we did manage to spend a little bit of time in the garden.
LOOK WHAT I FOUND!! LOOK WHAT I FOUND!!
I’m sorry but this just made me so excited when I first noticed it. The back of Jays hair now makes a love heart in curls. He’s never had a haircut – his hair really is that short, so now that it’s finally growing I just love it. The little cow lick curl at the back is getting bigger and curlier by the day. It may be down to his bum before I can bring myself to cut it.
Last but not least, my friend Nikki from exclusivepumper.com has come up with pumping awards to celebrate the achievements that exclusive pumpers are making – ranging from ‘I tried’ right through to ’4 years’. This is my award at the moment and I couldn’t be prouder to use it. I must have the full set!!

Have a good weekend and enjoy the sunshine (if it stays). :) :D
What did you take pictures of this week?!
