Saturday

Its been a rainy but chilled Saturday here in the crazy household.

In between the showers we managed a nice walk and some family time together.

There has been brownie baking, card making and a little Mario playing.

I couldn’t think of a better way to spend a day than with my favourite people.

Happy Saturday everyone.❤x

That friday Feeling

Its Friday hooray,although I am sure you didnt need me to tell you that!

Finally I can say I had some sleep last night which I find is always a bonus.

I wish I could say the sun is shining and its a beautiful day but in reality its cold and far too dark for my liking, but hey you can’t have everything.

In order to get this friday started I must drag myself out of bed and locate some coffee because quite frankly although I am definitely not a morning person with or without it~I simply must have some anyway!

Happy friday everyone.❤x

Unorganised as ever

The following paragraph probably sums me up quite well really, what can I say?! Hee hee.

When the dentist very kindly phones and leaves a message asking you to rearrange an upcoming appointment which you had infact completely forgotten about its actually quite handy!!! ❤x

Date Night

So last night was date night. Of course I stuck to my usual tradition of always being late, I couldnt decide what to wear and after emptying my wardrobe trying to find the top I was looking for time was fast running away from me.

I was so hot but not in a good way~more the temperature way as in so hot I feared my make up might melt off of my face!

Anyway after leaving the house 30mins later than I had planned and getting stuck in traffic I made it.

We had a lovely evening, despite the restaurant we planned to go to being closed for its christmas do!

I didn’t take a picture last night so am sharing a different one of us.

Happy #humpday everyone, keep smiling.❤x

Oh Monday

It wouldn’t be Monday if I wasn’t sat in the sauna like conditions of the swimming pool waiting for the teenage delight.

The only plus side to this is that the coffee machine is finally working after being out of order for ages!

Thankfully tomorow is Tuesday which also means date night. I am very much looking forward to that although some very inconsiderate insect has decided to nibble my face and has left me with a horrendous bite just under my eye~marvellous!

I am hoping that that one of the following options will work by tomorrow night~

A. The antihistamine cream will actually help and make it disappear.

B.I wake up in the morning and it has miraculously disappeared.

C. I can cover it with enough make up without making myself too orange!

Well a girl can hope.

Happy Monday everyone.❤x

2018

I can honestly say that 2018 has been the year with the biggest highs and heartbreaking lows.I will be taking the best memories into 2019 and holding on tight to them, whilst keeping them close to my heart.

If this year has taught me anything,it is that life can change in the blink of an eye.
Always try and live with no regrets, love well and be happy, surely life is too short and too precious for any thing else.

As one year draws to a close and another one begins,lets hope 2019 is a good one.

Wishing you all a new year that is full of happiness.

See you later 2018 ❤x

See you later Xx

For the last 41yrs you have been here by my side,through the ups and downs its been quite a ride.

There’s been laughter and tears over the years.

But throughout it all one thing has always been clear, you have always been near.

When things have been good or bad I have always been glad to share the load with you.

No problem was too big or small, you helped me solve them all.

Who knew that our journey would come to an end and now I am left with a pain that won’t ever mend.

Dad you are one in a million, one of lifes very best and I know that wherever your journey takes you around the next bend, we can depend on the love you gave us to guide us through.

To navigate the good days and the bad,ever grateful for the love and memories we have had.

So as I sit here, with tears in my eye~just remember what we said~its not bye, its see you later.

All my love now and always Nats.💔x

#MyAquaphorChallenge

Winter~love it or hate it there is no escape from it.

One thing that is never welcome is dry skin, particularly when exposed to the elements.

Here at the crazy household we have been taking the #MyAquaphor Challenge and testing out Aquaphor soothing skin balm.

Aquaphor is a soothing skin balm which can be used on the body, face and even babies bottoms!

This balm is easily absorbed by the skin and is so versatile one tube is all you need.

I have kept this is my handbag and used it on both my hands and face with fabulous results.

It leaves your skin feeling protected with a soothing barrier too.

It has even gained approval from my teenager who has happily been using it daily to keep her hands soft and smooth.

The versatility of Aquaphor means that you can carry it with you and use it as part of your daily routine.

This post is an entry for the Britmums #MyAquaphorchallenge sponsored by Eucerin.

Oh Wednesday

So today #humpday has gone something like this…
Left the house ridiculously early to realise that I have forgotten anything for breakfast and infact lunch.

Got stuck in a hideous amount of traffic enroute to collecting the kids from their grandparents house,ask them to make sure that they are totally ready for my arrival.
After collecting them they assure me that they do in fact have everything they need, although funnily enough a mere 2 seconds down the road Ads decides to announce that he has left his lunch behind (def takes after me I feel!)this calls for a quick 3 point turn and a few muttered swear words as we turn back to collect said lunch.

As I drop them off at school, Ads decides that he is too grown up to give me a kiss goodbye because he’s seen his friends coming down the road and clearly I am soooooo embarrasing thanks son!

Got parked with a few minutes to spare and head to work, the morning walk is interrupted by the teenage delight phoning to say that her brace was broken and what should she do?! Aargh! More muttered swear words and several phone calls later and we have an emergency dentist appointment which fortunately resolved this problem~I would however of been even happier if he could of solved the teenage attitude problem but I guess I simply can’t have it all!

This evening thankfully has been much better, I successfully dyed my hair (No more greys for me!), had a yummy dinner cooked for me and had cuddles with Pam too.

Happy #humpday everyone.❤x
