Five for Friday

This is my first time linking up with Doodle Bugs Teaching for the five for Friday weekly linky party!! It looks lots of fun and I'm excited to be a part of it! There are so many fabulous linkys it's hard to keep up with them all!!

The idea of this one - (I think) - is to post 5 things from my week.


We are coming up to the end of year (end of July) and decided to plan our end of year trip. We are headed to The Dinosaur Park. I'm so excited!! Our children love going on trips and I think this is going to be fabulous for them!!

They have so much going on there it's brilliant and a perfect day out!!

We finally had some sun! We literally never have sun. EVER! So it's been lovely to have it - even if it was a fleeting visit! It meant I got to dig out my nice summery clothes. I've been working really hard to lose the build up of holiday weight i've gained on past vacations. It's worked really well - my clothes are now too big! Which means shopping before our August holiday!!

I joined a group of TpT sellers to put together this fabulous free summer time recipe book which is available to download now. See my blog post here for all the info! 

My followers on my TpT store are flying up this past week! It's so exciting. I can't wait for the Summer rush to see how popular my items are becoming. It really does fill me with pride every little cha ching that I hear, there have been so many lately I'm in disbelief!

and finally...

My parents are away for the weekend so we are on pet babysitting duty! I know - LOL! Meet Billy our lovely parrot who was believed to be male up until last year when he had a bad spot of health and ended up being a girl! He's somewhat of a celebrity as he was on TV for the Vet shows!! Then Daisy and Peaches the little mischiefs. Peaches is the little one staring right at me wondering what I'm doing with my phone or if i'm going to give her any food - she is a right little mischief!!

Wow - that was a long one - oops! Thanks for reading if you made it this far! Have a great weekend!



  1. The dinosaur park looks like a great field trip option. Your kids are lucky. The kids in public school here get one field trip per grade.

  3. I loved reading your 5 for Five! You had a lot going on this week! I think the trip to the dinosaur park sounds amazing, I'm sure your littles will LOVE it to pieces! Kudos on your TPT store followers! My goal for my store this summer is to get at least 300 followers. Fingers crossed! :-) I hope pet-sitting went well for you! Gorgeous parrot, and those little pups do look full of mischief! I hope you have an amazing weekend, and can't wait to read your Spotlight tomorrow!! :-)
