The Week That Was…
It’s been a huge week in many ways and I wanted to take a breath and look back on the week that was…
On the Blog
For my regular Sunday Musical Musings post I shared some of my favourite songs about confessions, to celebrate the return of I Must Confess in musical style.
On Monday I finally resurrected I Must Confess as a weekly linkup. Many thanks to A Parenting Life, Being Gawee and Robomum for linking up and making it a successful return – I really appreciate your support guys.
BTW the linkup is still live so if you want to link up, go right ahead, otherwise I will have a fresh confession and linkup ready for Monday – I hope you can join me there.
Tuesday dawned and I decided to give my secret santa (as well as my husband) some ideas for christmas gifts for the upcoming festive season. I also gave myself a shock when I realised how very close christmas really is…I am SO not prepared.
And Wednesday saw me laughing at the debacle that was Click Frenzy and marvel at how clever and quick social media tweeps truly are. If you haven’t checked this out yet, you should – it’s gold!
In Real Life
We have made some progress on our house – yay! We have reviewed our plans and the builder is updating them as we speak, ready for the next big step – signing the building contract. We also expect registration of the land to occur before christmas so fingers crossed we’ll be in a position to start building in the first half of next year.
I have hit a purple patch of luck and have actually won 3 competitions in the last couple of weeks. Many thanks to Becc from Take Charge Now, Lou from Mum Speak and Smarty Pants Kids and Denyse from Denyse Whelan Life Stories for running these fantastic giveaways and for picking me – you have made me so happy!
While we’re on the subject of giveaways I currently have one of my own. I’m giving away 4 tickets for your family to see Disney Live! Mickey’s Rockin’ Road Show at the Newcastle Entertainment Centre in January. If you are a Novocastrian or you will be in the vicinity in January, why not enter for your chance to win?
Gilbert, Matilda and I went to the Variety Club Christmas Party on Wednesday night. Many thanks to all the volunteers and the organisations involved in this fantastic night. It proved too much for Gilbert in the end but I’m still glad we went, despite the meltdowns and difficulty sleeping that followed.
And today, I am looking forward to a long-overdue catch-up with friends, as well as the chance to finally start some christmas shopping – better late than never, right? Heads up too, to my allocated secret santa, I’m shopping for you as well – I hope you’ve given me enough clues to put together an awesome gift package for you!
So that’s a quick snapshot into my world – how has your week treated you?
(I’m obviously taking my cue this week from Rhianna and embracing the cheeky multiple link up…thanks for the tip Rhi!)
