This week has been a win some, lose some, kinda week…
WIN: Strawberry season is finally here and we are picking and eating warm, sweet, berries every day!
LOSE: Something is still eating my beans!
WIN: It stopped raining and it has even been been warm and sunny most of this week! Time to do all the laundry!
LOSE: My washing machine has lost it’s little electronic mind.
WIN: My big boy got is his much wanted swimming certificate, only four months ago he was too scared to put his face in the water!
LOSE: School swimming right at the busiest time of the year means very tired kids.
WIN: I finally read The Hunger Games – loved it, must get my hands on the second book now.
LOSE: I put off sleep in favour of reading – not clever.
WIN: I cut Noah’s hair and it looks ok!
LOSE: With his short hair cut now you can see Noah’s big green bruise and lump where he fell on his head last week.
I think I might choose to ignore the losses and chalk this week down as a win. The sunshine alone makes even the crappy things seem less… well… crappy!
I’ve seem some really winning things online this week too, so that definitely tips the balance in favour of the wins. Here are just a few winning links…
