This week has been a catch up week. Still busy but less crazy. I’ve been feeling really ill, which is hardly a shock considering I haven’t stopped in weeks. I feel I’m getting there though.

Here are my top ten moments from the last 7 days:

My Night at McDonald’s

I’ve never been one to shy away from taking L to McDonald’s. If we’re travelling it’s perfect and he loves it as a special treat. There’s one everywhere you go, you know what to expect and it’s always great value. I was really excited to be invited along to a blogger event at the McDonalds by Norwich Airport.

So here are my top ten moments from the last 7 days:
