Secretly I spent the morning trying every website possible to get tickets to see Lewis Capaldi at The O2, London in October. I have tried for the past three days, to no avail. I had O2 priority presale access on Wednesday, I had Live Nation presale access yesterday and then the tickets went on general sale today and sold within 10 seconds 😲
This afternoon, Peach managed to get home early and join me in taking the girls to Rebound Inflatable Park in Ashby. It was one of the treat that they had requested at the beginning of the week. 2Tone suffers with motion sickness and therefore struggles with trampoline parks, so we thought we would give this a try. We paid for the hour, but you can opt to pay a little bit more and stay for two hours. As you can see by their sweaty faces, most of them had a thoroughly enjoyable time. In hindsight, it may have been a better option to do this at the beginning of the week, as I personally think the girls are a little bit tired and got tired very quickly.
We had family night with Nanna T tonight and she arrived with a wonderful treat of ice-creams for us all to enjoy and the most amazing Apple & Cinnamon Tray Bake!! 😍😋😍
Today I took the big girls for a beauty treatment, while my friend took the little girls off to Twinlakes. We met them there after lunch and they all had fun running around in the indoor play area. We ventured out of the play area and took the girls on a few rides. At first complaining that it was too cold and then once they had been on one ride, it was a race to get to the next one. I personally love it at Twinlakes, they have so much for children (and adults) of all ages to get involved in. They have indoor activities as well as outdoor activities and in the summer have a water play area too! The first photo was taken as the girls prepared to go on the go karts together; challenging each other to do 10 laps each. DM was lapped 4 times and one of those was with another person running alongside and then in-front of her 😂
We got home and the girls friends have slept over. It was so beautiful to see the big grins on their faces as I tucked them all in 🥰 (hoping they’ll get some sleep 🤞🏻)
Our girls are inquisitive and visual young ladies. They like to know what we are doing, when we are doing it and what we have planned for today, tomorrow and next week. They also have ideas of what they have planned for themselves and get disappointed when I can’t read their mind and don’t facilitate what they wanted to do. 🤦♀️
So to make sure that we all were singing from the same sheet, we have sat together and planned our week together. We have planned in the things that are already booked, added in when we can do activities that we would like to do and then list extra treats, that if we get the time, we can do.
As you can see, it’s a pretty jam packed week. Fingers crossed, I can keep the screen time to a minimum and keep the girls busy, whilst also encouraging family and friend time and some down time too. 🤞
