Look, it's Monday and I am doing My Week That Was on time!! lol. Last week was the double bank holiday and also half term. It didn't go quite as planned and although I was determined not to, the Great British weather did mean that some of my plans were postponed.
On Monday we decided to go off to Legoland to renew our annual passes. Thanks to my weekend job, I had 50% off vouchers for the Merlin Annual passes, so we decided to get those this year, rather than just renewing our Legoland pass. We got there about midday(ish) and by the time we got the annual passes sorted and walked down into the resort, the weather wasn't too great. We managed to get one ride in before the rain really started to come down. I had heard about the special Lego Jubilee Queen model that was there, so I insisted that we went to the Miniland area to see it. The crown of the Lego Queen is encrusted with 48 tiny diamonds, worth thousands of pounds and looks rather pretty. As you can imagine, there is a security guard there at all times looking after the little Lego Queen. While we were there admiring the Queen, Aled calls out that he can see the Queens boat. We had watched the Jubilee River Pageant the day before and I was rather impressed that Aled recognised the Lego model of the Queens boat. I do find it fascinating of how much detail goes in to these little models. After visiting Miniland we got the Hill Train back up to the top and hubby, PJ and Noah went for a wonder around the Star Wars area. Aled thought that the area was 'too scary' and didn't want to go in, so we wondered around the shop.

On Tuesday we had a little Jubilee party at my mums. It was originally going to be a family BBQ, but we had to change our plans due to the weather. We got there for about 10.30am and me and mum went off to Asda to get the food. We tried not to go too mad, as there weren't many of us. When we got back to mum's, my step father was already there. Not long after, my sister Susan came, followed by my other sister Helen with her stepson Brandon. We put out our party food and tucked in. It was a nice afternoon spent with my family and something that we really should try to do more often. During the afternoon, it came about that mum was babysitting Brandon on Wednesday. We decided that it would be nice to take the kids off to Legoland for the day. For the rest of the afternoon we watched a bit of the Queens parade on the tv and then highlights of Monday nights concert.

On Saturday and Sunday I was back at work. Saturday was pretty good. After I had finished my shift I decided to get my lunch in the staff canteen. Normally I go straight home, but I was feeling rather hungry. After buying my lunch, the managers were there giving out free Ben & Jerry's ice cream. Thank you very much! It was really yummy (even more so as it was free!). Saturday evening I baked up my second Herman batch (I promise I will do a post about this soon!!). Sunday I had an early night with my book, but ended up not sleeping very well, resulting in me lying awake for hours until past 3am with all sorts running around through my mind.
Well, there we go. I don't think this week will be quite as exciting as last week, although it is only Monday, so who's to say what's to come!
