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

Just like that the summer holidays seem to of faded like a distant memory.

One thing that is very fresh though is the back to school chores and ever continual battle of keeping the uniforms smart and clean.

With a football mad boy in the house, I can almost guarantee stains appearing on shirts,trousers and pe kit on an almost daily basis!

We have been trying out Ace stain remover, and I am genuinely pleased with the results.

I love the two different ways to tackle the stains 1. A pretreatment spray which is used before washing and 2. an inwash formula that you use directly into the washing machine. Ace is formulated for colours so it keeps clothes clean and bright no matter what they have had thrown at them or Indeed down them during the day!

I was also pleasantly surprised to find out that you can also use Ace for day to day cleaning too.

I even tried it in the bathroom and was thrilled with the result, which was long lasting clean and freshness.

I love the fresh smell of Ace and the fabulous cleaning power at removing stains. It’s versatility for use around the home too makes it an all round win for me here in this crazy household.❤X

Quiet

I feel like I haven’t written for ages, that’s not because I haven’t got anything to say,infact I quite often have too much to say~maybe silence is golden sometimes hehe!

Anyway here I am and I can’t believe we are almost a whole week into October, another year that is simply flying by.

As ever the days and weeks have been busy and full on, not that I would want it another way.

We have been making the most of the weather whilst it’s still reasonable and as the evenings start to get dark so early now we have been trying to squeeze in some seaside walks before it becomes completely dark by 4pm!

That said evenings in front of the fire are beckoning and that’s always lovely too, although if truth be told once the fire is on you can guarantee I won’t be awake for long!

In other news I have become a fully fledged grown up and purchased a slow cooker, yes at the age of 41yrs not only have I brought one but I have managed to cook dinner in it and actually left the house whilst it was on (those of you who know me well will understand!)

Happy Friday everyone.❤x

Beautiful ride

I love words, writing, pictures, quotes.
They are so powerful and radiate such meaning.

I love to see things when I’m out and about, this quote I particularly love, I love what it says and what it means but I also love that it was painted on a seaside shop window.

I didn’t see it or indeed take the picture, my daughter did, she took the picture and sent it to me because she knew I would like it.

Sometimes these things have a habit of popping up and jumping out at you, maybe a little reminder of how beautiful life is, maybe we should all slow down and appreciate the things around us~the people we have in our lives and the memories they share with us and help us to create big and small.

So yes life is a beautiful ride~smile when you can, laugh everyday,love with all of your heart and hang on tight!❤x
