Morning all! Welcome to your weekly dose of Monday Motivation! I hope you’ve all had a good weekend and are ready to tackle a new week head on! I think I will be needing to grab a coffee this morning…I love this time of year but it gets so ridiculously busy with the kids activities that we hardly know if we’re coming or going! This weekend has been pretty full on but I love having things to look forward to and to know our weekends are full rather than have weeks and weeks of nothing lying ahead of me.
So Archie was at Scout camp all weekend. I’d like to say he had a great time but I’m not too sure he did! He loves going to Scouts but camping is really not his thing. He came home very tired but nothing a good night’s sleep won’t cure. I’m sure he benefited from a weekend in the open air though away from his phone and his Xbox! Phoebe had a busy time too this weekend with her Theatre School. On Saturday she was on the Northampton Carnival Float with the rest of her dancing friends and then on Sunday after a tasty start of pancakes for breakfast she went off to a 4 hour rehearsal for their end of year show. This will be her second big show with Top Hat and I can’t wait – it will be fantastic!
Today is a slightly different day for me. I’ve swapped my days at work so that I have today off and this morning I’m off to see Phoebe in her school Sports Day. This afternoon we have a very exciting adventure! Phoebe and I, and the rest of her dance school friends, are off to Birmingham to see the final dress rehearsal of the Royal Ballet’s production of Coppelia. We also get to meet one of the principal ballerina’s before the show for a Q & A and see all the wonderful costumes! It’s going to be an amazing experience, particularly for Phoebe, I just hope she manages to stay awake for the whole performance! I will write a full review of our trip, and possibly a video if I can, ready for Friday. I will definitely be going back to work with a bump on Tuesday!
Here is a little snapshot of my weekend in photo form!
So, however you’re feeling this Monday morning and whatever you’re doing this week why not just grab a coffee and be awesome! It’s a great way to start a new week 🙂
Until next time…
