Word Of The Week – Busy

This week we have been very busy sorting out lots of different things. From the car to holidays and even Ethan starting school. It feels like we haven’t stopped!


It has been the week of sorting out the car. Our car has had to have its MOT and its six-monthly service this week. The car insurance is also due. I was actually able to save £170 on our car insurance which I’m very pleased about. It can be really worthwhile using a comparison site.

We have also booked some Center Parcs activities. We have booked a mini-break there. It will be our first time having a holiday at Center Parcs. I even booked a hotel for the BritMums conference. I really hope I attend this year and don’t talk myself out of it. Being heavily pregnant last time was a good enough reason to stay at home. It did actually turn out to be the right decision as it wasn’t long after the conference that I became really ill and Little E was delivered early.

We have also started to contact Ethan’s school to arrange his transition. We will soon have to think about school shoes and uniforms. A big change but one we are excited about. I can’t believe how quickly our little boy is growing up!

Ethan also had a dentist appointment with our regular dentist. He did put up a fight and there were lots of NOOOOO’s. Ethan did open his mouth for a few seconds which is amazing progress. He is very sensory with his month and going to the dentist is a big thing for him.

It feels like we have been on the go all week. We have been so busy we even missed going to Little E’s baby group. Hopefully, we will get to visit next week.

  1. Sounds a busy and productive week – that saving on the car insurance is mega, and a good reminder we should all shop around. It does annoy me that they can do this though! #wotw

      I couldn’t believe it when they told me the price. I got them to repeat it three times just to make sure ;0)

  2. Wow, you are busy!

    You will go to BritMums! And you will have lots of fun, with lots of lovely people! You never know, I may just make it next year 😉

      I wish you luck on your insurance. We have lots of change coming up, I’m nervous but also excited about it x

  3. My son hates the dentist too. He fights and gets really upset, but he did let him have a quick look last time. So well done Ethan!

      It is so stressful! We are also seeing the special needs dentist at the moment, we are hoping that because we have started young by the time Ethan is 20 he will be able to handle a check up ;0) x
