I love my Tuesdays

I love Tuesdays at the moment.  It’s a no pre-school day, so it’s the one day a week when we can have a leisurely breakfast and just enjoy some Monkey and me time.  It’s so much nicer when I’m not constantly fighting the clock to get out the door.

This morning we went into town to buy a few birthday cards and buy a new spike for the washing line – somehow over the winter the hole in the lawn has totally disappeared!  After we’d done our shopping we had a treat in Costa Coffee – cappuccino for Mummy, Innocent smoothie for Monkey and we shared a Blueberry muffin.  Monkey feel very grown up when we have morning snack time in a Cafe 🙂

We couldn’t come home without visiting the building site that is, and has been, our town centre, for the last year.  We will eventually have a new supermarket, shops and a CINEMA – I cannot wait.  But in the meantime we have free entertainment every time we visit town.  Monkey will be so upset when all the work is finished.

Home for playtime …… in the sun.  Time to get the sand table out for the first time this year.  Monkey has been  in his element – making sand cakes, sand castles and obviously playing building sites.

About Over 40 and a Mum to One

I'm a Mum in my late 40′s with a 7 year old son. I had a busy life in Export Sales before my Monkey came along, but decided to become a stay at home Mum once he arrived. Now I enjoy writing my own family lifestyle and travel blog. sharing the adventures that we have as Monkey makes his journey through school. We have a cat called Brewster who makes appearances and I’m a mad Ferrari Formula 1 fan, so that expect to hear about as each season unfolds. We love reviewing toys, games and books and would love the opportunity to look at anything that fits in with our family lifestyle. We are always out and about and offering an insight on the places we visit, with a passion for nature thrown in for good measure. If you like what you read please leave me a comment, I love to hear from people, and always try to reply. Enjoy the read.

  1. When you don’t get to spend all week with them it really is special time isn’t it. I used to love my Mondays off work with Little Mr A, we had such fun and I really miss our special time now he is at school.

  2. Ahh that’s lovely that you have quality time together just doing simple ‘pottering about’ type things. Hopefully he’ll remember special Costa Coffees when he’s older (I’m sure Ruby will spend many hours with me in various coffee shops – it won’t feel much of a treat!)

  3. Like you, I had a special day with Grace – Monday’s. Everyone had gone back to work after the weekend and it felt like the world was ours for that moment in time. It’s amazing how a work site can be entertainment for a child. Lovely sandpit photos :). Thanks for linking up to PoCoLo xx
