Here’s what’s happening with Mr and Mrs T Plus Three this week…

BlOG LIFE

  • I am struggling with my blog as still have no internet. Boo hoo!
  • Any deadlines I’ve had to meet have been done in Starbucks while Rose is at nursery which means I have become quite the coffee addict. Seriously roll on Saturday when the internet engineer is supposedly coming…
  • Aby and I launched the third month of Vlog Stars yesterday, the theme this time is ‘highs and lows of parenting’ and there is a special bonus challenge too. Check it out!
  • I have been doing lots of thinking about the direction of my blog and you will be seeing a few changes soon plus more vlogging.
  • My most successful post this week was: What to include on a killer media kit
  • My own favourite post this week was: Before I had a child

SOCIAL MEDIA

  • My fav conversation on Twitter this week was with Tara (@Catstello) and co-founder of Zusterschap Collective a wonderful blog promoting feminism and the sisterhood of women. I strongly urge you to take a peek. It really is brilliant, eloquent and intelligently written.
  • My funniest Instagram moment this week came after catching Rose decorating her bedroom wall with her ‘artwork’ it was hard to be cross because she was so proud of her masterpiece! I’m just glad we haven’t decorated her room yet.

 

Rose with crayon!

REAL LIFE

  • We have now been in our new house for two weeks and we are very happy here. It is bliss even though there is no possibility of ever getting Sky tv back and dubious that we will ever get a working internet connection. Aaaaggghhh!
  • Holly had her 15th birthday and had a lovely get together with her friends in the garden, she had a really nice time and loved the polaroid camera we got her.
  • Lewis has left school forever <sob> is contemplating his future and having a well deserved rest.
  • Rose has settled into the new house well but her bedtime has gone completely mental. I really need to sort it asap.
  • The interior decorating and renovating plans for the house are well under way. Very excited to get started on it all.

Hope everyone has had a good week!

    C’mon Saturday!! It must be killing you! Have you not got a kindly neighbour who might let you piggy back theirs?! Don’t worry about Rose’s bedtime – R was exactly the same when we moved, but it soon settled again :) I might commission Rose to help us finish the spare room. Loving her skills ;) xxx Thanks for linking up to #TheList xxx

    Ha! Sorry, I had to giggle at the artwork on the wall! I hope you get your internet sorted soon, there is nothing worse than feeling disconnected, though Starbucks and endless coffee actually does not sound that bad! #TheList

    How exciting that you’re cracking straight on with your house plans, everything here is going very slowly (but we do have superfast broadband and virgin media TiVo, so swings and roundabouts! ;-) )

    Rose’s face in that picture is pricless! And how crazy that you have a child that’s left school! But at least it means you have a live-in full time babysitter for now! haha.

    Look forward to seeing how the house progresses etc. #thelist

    Nice artwork Rose. No idea how you’ve coped this long without Internet access. I would have totally lost it by now. Great to hear the move has, otherwise, gone well. #TheList

    Oh No poor you without internet!! I can’t bear being without internet for 1 minute LOL Do you have 4G? I find 4G very good when I have any wifi problems at home. It is really fast! The only thing is that I can only use my iphone for that and it is limited. I can’t wait to see how your new house decoration is going to be ;-) xx #TheList
