DIY Weekend – Living Arrows 12/52

We’ve had some quiet weekends over the few weeks where we’ve not had much planned and this week was no different.

On Friday, the boys headed into school with odd socks to support World Down Syndrome Day. M’s class were all given a pair from the official #LotsofSocks campaign from a parent which I thought was lovely. He came out of school telling me that he’s moved up another level in his Reading which is just amazing. I’m so proud of how well he’s done.


We then met up with Mr H in Richmond to review Carluccio’s as they’ve just had a makeover.


Saturday, we continued prepping our hallway. We’re still sanding down all the woodwork and it feels like we haven’t gotten very far but its such a dusty job!

It was lovely and sunny on Sunday, we only popped out to do a grocery shop and spent the rest of the afternoon doing odd jobs around the house. M gave me hand making a pasta salad and we ended the day with a delicious Beef Bourguignon for dinner which we’d not had for ages.


I’m sharing weekly photos of the boys to celebrate their childhood and linking up to the Living Arrows linky
