Our Weekend In Pictures

Our weekend was fairly uneventful unfortunately, mainly due to the lovely Scottish weather! Daddy worked all day Saturday and I had a friend's birthday dinner to attend in the evening so Eva and I took it easy. I feel like the nesting instinct has taken over as I found myself randomly cleaning doors and dusting things I would never have bothered with before! 

Friday night was a nightmare for all of us. I'm in the process of painting a toddler bed we got free (yeah! Frugal!) from a friend and I ordered a new mattress from Mothercare for it, but I was feeling inpatient so took her cot away and left her with just the mattress. I thought it would be wise to do this, despite her new molars coming through, and she was showing signs of a cold starting on Friday. Lesson learned, Eva got up a couple of times but I escorted her back to the 'bed' and she went to sleep. No problem. I was so proud. Within a few hours though she was awake, crying, she had rolled out of bed. We gave her teetha and Calpol, juice and a feed, nothing worked. By 4am we were all shattered, Eva had woken up every hour! We put the mattress back in the cot and poor Martin who was getting up at 530am slept beside her on the floor for the remainder of the night. 
     
I'll continue that story next week when her mattress comes, her colds through with, and teething settles, honestly what an idiot I am for that!

Raspberry Sunrise Smoothie
I did make this beautiful smoothie while Eva napped on Saturday. Poor baby has the cold so I let her sleep for 2 hours and 40 minutes. I had intended to recreate this smoothie for a blog post but it didn't really turn out the way I'd hoped. Still tasty though! Here's how it was supposed to look. Eva fairly enjoyed hers when she woke up from her nap.




Saturday cutie pie!

Munching on Toast
 Eva went through 3 pairs of trousers on Saturday. Every time we went out to put washing out she got soaked because firstly the grass was still wet, her bike and trike outside were wet. She is pretty much the main reason I have so much washing to put out in the first place!

Oh her jumper is from hello apparel (I have the green one for myself), those leggings are from ebay but say George on the label, and we were gifted the shoes by freshly picked (giveaway still happening here until Saturday the 31st)
selfie!

new ombre hair!

some of my dessert from Cosmo.
Greedy Prego Mama!!!
My kimono was on sale for £15 (see similar here)! from H&M, though I am pretty fed up with H&M at the moment, I seem to own far too much of their stuff lol!

Hope you had a lovely weekend too and I am hoping the weather clears a bit so Eva and I can get some washing done! My antenatal swimming class was cancelled for today, Monday, because the lady who runs it has fractured her elbow so I'm really not having the best day in terms of motivation and mood etc. Lets hope it passes soon!
