10 Things – July Edition

10 Things

Oh my word how is it the end of July already? So you know what that means, it’s time for another 10 highlights from July and linking up with Stevie again.

1) Miss Mostyn’s birthday

Paw Patrol Picnic

I can’t believe that my littlest girl is one! Time is flying by way too quick. She’s growing up too fast! She’s such an inquistitve little thing and loves her big sister so much. Trouble is that she tries to steal everything Little Miss has which inevitably causes a meltdown by someone. But she’s perfect, absolutely perfect.

2) Swimming

A month of firsts! We took Miss Mostyn swimming for the first time. She loved it! We also had a bit of a breakthrough with Little Miss. She’s not overly keen on water but she came into the pool and seemed to enjoy it.

3) Illness

We’ve all been ill over the past week. Miss Mostyn started off with a cough and was wheezy and we ended up taking her to the doctor. Doctor said that despite a nasty sounding cough that her chest is clear and she’s ok. She has passed it on to me and hubby though and because we’re asthmatic it’s been a bit of a bitch. Breathing is difficult! I just hope it doesn’t develop into a chest infection like I had at Christmas.

4) Hot Tub

Hot Tubs North Wales Showroom

We rented a hot tub for Miss Mostyn’s birthday weekend. It was such a shame the weather was rubbish otherwise we would’ve had great fun in it.

5) Sky Q

We got Sky Q installed yesterday! As it turns out, it’s cheaper than our current contract so honestly, what did we have to lose? The picture quality is AMAZING and finally I can record more than two things at once!

6) Minions

First thing we watched after getting Sky Q was Minions! Why am I so behind the times and only seeing this now? It’s hilarious!

7) Pokemon Go

Hubby is really into it but me not so much. It did however get us out of the house and for a long walk around town to find Pokestops.

8) Doodling

I’ve been doodling a lot recently thanks to some inspiration from Pic Candle videos. I created the above doodle after watching some videos.

9) Sleeping Success

We may have cracked the sleeping routine of Little Miss. We used to have to “sleep” on the floor in Little Miss’ room until she fell asleep before we could move. Last week we’ve changed things up and after bath, we read her a story or two (or three) and then leave her to it. We had some grumbling but she seems to have settled in to this routine. Which is yay for us! Now all we need to do is crack Miss Mostyn!

10) Work

I’ve been busy this month and I’ve also had to move offices at work. My room is being knocked through to the next one to make a bigger one. I’m moving to a different room but whilst the work is being done I have to share again. Not shared a room with someone for alms 4 years so it feels very weird!

So that’s it for my July. How was July for you?

    Lovely list. Sorry for the illnesses but it otherwise sounds like some fun is being had. And great news on the sleeping front. Sleep struggles are no fun.

    I did not know you could hire a hot tub! That’s dangerous information for me to know, haha! And Minions is a great film, both my kids love it! x #KCAOCS

    I have never thought about the option of renting a hot tub! Great idea but too bad you couldn’t get much use out of it! We are currently avoiding Pokémon Go like the plague because I don’t have any extra time to spend gaming, but it looks like loads of fun!

    I didn’t know you could rent hot tubs – such a clever idea 🙂 we live in the countryside and apparently our handyman daughter found a pokemon in our garden. I really don’t understand this new phenomenon #KCACOLS

    Oh wow it sounds like you had a busy month. I also didn’t know that you could rent hot tubs! That look like the best fun ever, even in bad weather! #KCACOLS

    You can rent hot tubs in Wales!? I must see if this is possible where I live. Rain or wind or sleet or snow I’d be in it, ha ha!

    You really had a busy month. I don’t get this pokemon phenomenon. It is just crazy! I love the idea of being able to rent a hot tub! Great idea! Thanks so much for sharing this at #KCACOLS. It is nice to see you back after so long, 🙂 x

    It sounds like you had quite a productive month. Yay for better sleeping! The hot tub sounds like a great idea. #FridayFrivolity
