This Week #27

Some days you have to create your own sunshine
Life this Week

This has been a super busy week! On Monday I had a scrutiny pre-meeting, then a seminar, then a secondary school governors' meeting, then food shopping... Tuesday was a joint scrutiny meeting then home to tackle the mountain of dirty laundry.

On Wednesday I had a full day of resources scrutiny, and Thursday was healthier scrutiny. I was meant to go to Labour group in the early evening but I went for a half hour lie down and woke up three hours later. Friday, I had a Police and Crime Panel meeting at Monmouthshire County Council's HQ - it's very swank, Monmouthshire isn't the wealthiest area of Wales for nothing!

After that Marianna and I went with my parents to visit my nan, because it was her birthday. My cousin was there too with her baby; there is only a couple of months betweenr that e them and they got on really well, although Marianna did steal her bottle. When we got home Anthony was on his way out so I was looking forward to putting Marianna to bed and having a night on my own. 

Marianna had other ideas. She finally went to sleep at half past midnight. 

I was supposed to go to Labour Womens' Forum on Saturday morning but Marianna had completely broken me. I even went for an afternoon nap and could have just slept straight through.

This Week, I 'Ave Been Mostly...

☆ READING: Mary Had a Little Lamb... it's the subject for this week's #FridayFrivolity post!

WATCHING: Thirteen. It's so good, but I'm having a hard time waiting for each episode. I'm too used to just watching series all in one go! 

☆ LISTENING: Dame Rosemary Butler came into work on Monday to give a seminar on women in politics. I put together an infographic HERE.

☆ WEARING: Make-up. Every day! It's like a new me.

☆ EATING: Anthony bought me some Nerds! :D
