Sunny Side Up

Last week was a good week. It was a full week: I went back to school after the briefest of Easter holidays, mummy had an interview & baby shower to attend and Judah was looking for new ways to get mummy's pulse racing. 

Let's start with me. I was pining for my friends - and ballet - so by the time Wednesday arrived I was well and truly ready to get back to school. Mummy however wasn't. She was an emotional wreck that day. She kept going on about how fast time was moving and that she couldn't believe it was my last term as a reception girl. She was close to tears as she waved goodbye to me at the door. I didn't get the whole drama. I was just so excited to be back at school and in my summer dress. Oh, and some of the mummy's and daddy's kept walking past mummy as they didn't recognise her with her new hairdo! 

And so to mummy. With this mini depressed state she was in, she was struggling to get herself together for an all important interview for a role she hadn't even applied for directly. She was very excited but at the same time petrified. She felt out of her depth and very much out of touch with the business world after a year plus of being at home generally talking to inanimate objects & Judah. 

So nervous was she that she decided to go to the bathroom for a quick pep talk after checking in at reception. As she walked out of the bathroom, a guy walked in and muttered "I thought these were the men's toilets??!". And pop that balloon of confidence! Mummy decided to just own it and smiled sweetly all the way back to reception - "he is not interviewing me, it's cool!" she figured. She managed to get through the interview without doing anything crazy (this point needs verification by video ofcourse), and we await the outcome.

Whilst mummy attended the interview, Jodie our amazing babysitter that looked after both of us at our old nursery looked after Judah. They went to a local softplay and mummy prayed she wouldn't  find Jodie standing outside her interview venue holding out Judah and swearing never to do this again! Thankfully all went well. Mummy ended the week on a hunt for a nursery for Judah to attend in the hope it would help with his speech. So far, everywhere good is full. The only one with spaces left mummy with no reason to wonder why it had those spaces!! So the search continues!

At the weekend mummy hopped on a train and escaped to London to attend her oldest friend's baby shower. She says she'll blog about that separately as it was another "aha" moment for her. She came back lighter than air and decidedly more upbeat and jovial with a cornish pastie from the train station in her hand. On Sunday we hot footed it to church and Judah & I had tons of fun in our respective kids church rooms. Afterwards we were driven back to mummy's new favourite photo spot: ye olde green gate, for a quick session with the instagram husband, aka daddy. 

It all feels a bit like a distant memory now as we are halfway through this week! Hope you're having a fab week!
