This Week #20

Life This Week

Monday I had a seminar on corporate parenting, followed by Labour group. When I got home Anthony had some lovely flowers waiting for me, for St Dwynwen's Day. On Tuesday it was Full Council - the webcast is up - which I tried live tweeting to an audience of about three. :) I asked a question about the LTP (Local Transport Plan) and how we're going to promote public transport when we have no control over rail or the bus network... In the afternoon we went to Bron Afon's residents consultation for Northville, then I went on to finance committee for my primary school governor's board. Then came food shopping, always the highlight of the week...

Wednesday was a home day, then Thursday Marianna and I went with my parents to Aust, so my dad could go fossil hunting. Me and my mum 'promenaded' up and down the walkway with the pushchair and just chatted. Friday and Saturday were both fairly uneventful, but sometimes it's nice to have a few days with nothing much on.

☆ READING: The awesome news about the upcoming Barbie releases. Read more HERE.


WATCHING: Kids TV! I wrote a guest post this week about the five shows that shaped my childhood for the Hex Mum Blog.

☆ LISTENING: The tracks on my Saturday Soundtrack - check out my guest post over at The Mumington Post.

☆ WEARING: Warm clothes.

☆ EATING: I had a 'Half Swansea' on Thursday, which is basically the biggest roll ever. It was very nice though!

☆ REVIEWING: Moony nappies.


Other posts this week include Are You Seen and Never Heard?, a quiz from an old Mates annual, and I planned out the kitchen for the Mountfield doll house. I also did another guest post for Mrs Crafty B called 'Meet The Maker'.

The big thing this week was the Moz update. My DA went up from 12 to 19, and my PA from 27 to 32, so it's all going in the right direction. :)

Quote of the Week

"One kind word can change someone's entire day."

    1. Thank you! It is literally half a swansea roll - I'd never heard of it before either, but apparently it's the 'in thing' locally! x

  6. I love that quote, it really is true. And sadly one mean thing can ruin someones day. I always try and do one nice thing for a stranger a day and I hope that it just brightens their day a little. Thanks for joining in #HappyDaysLinky x

    1. It really can - I think we can't help but focus on the negative sometimes, so it stands out so much more. I try to lift everyone I meet because I'm a great believer in 'we get back what we give'. x
