Filled with Hope

I thought I would join in with some more blog links, give me ideas of things to write, and I've fancied this one for a while.

The Reading Residence

So what would be my word of the week, this week? What word sums up this week, in particular? My mind immediately goes to 'stress', but no, that is too easy...........and sums me up all the time!

No, I've decided my word, this week, is:

My tween is currently on a school trip. We have had absolutely no notification that they got there safe, actually I've not heard ANYTHING. I hope it's because they are having so much fun!

I've hoped for years that my hubby would stick to his word, and buy me a summer house. I can't get out much, in the sun, I burn very quickly and also get very sick, very quickly. A summer house, with electric so I can have a fan, is something I've wanted since sitting in my mams. It's the perfect way to be outside, without actually being outside.

Today, it got ordered!! 
(Granted, it's actually called a shed, but I will decorate it, no one will know....)

I hope it's easy to put together, as the hubby isn't really up to hard graft. Thankfully the teen is becoming quite handy around the house, so I hope he'll be helpful.

I hope I can keep getting my steps in, this week, with it being half term. My youngest son hates leaving the house, but there's a daddy around this time. Can we all say 'Escape!'.

So, this week, I'm full of hope.

As well as the above, I'm hoping for lie ins, a bit of sunshine. 
Maybe, just Maybe

A date night!

Much Love
