Busy

It’s been another busy week in the crazy household. Work,School runs, after school clubs, migraines, eye rolling and arguments with the teenagers~all pretty standard stuff really,particularly the eye~rolling because lets face it what do I know?! I am just Mum after all!

However In between those events we managed a date night at our local seaside carvery, some nice but cold walks along the beach and a very late night watching ‘4 weddings and a funeral’whilst drinking wine and playing an intellectual word game similar to scrabble, note the sarcasm when I say intellectual think more adult humour! Hee hee.

Once again its Sunday night,the weekend has disappeared far too quickly and as ever I should by now be fast asleep. Here’s hoping you had a good week and here’s to a fabulous week ahead.❤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

Mini adventure

Wow what a weekend, it’s gone by in an absolute flash. Mind you it’s been a busy one. On Saturday we went on a ‘mini’ road trip and when I say ‘mini’ I mean it quite literally. This is because my wonderful other half felt the need to purchase a classic Mini because having 4 vehicles isn’t enough hee hee.

So we set off on a 3 hour round trip to collect it.

Today has been just as hectic as I decided to tackle Ads bedroom,small it may be but believe me it had plenty of stuff in it. At one stage I could feel myself losing the will as every available floor space upstairs soon became covered with boxes,bin liners and charity bags.

We found more clothes under the bed than in the wardrobe and had a few sentimental moments with old pictures and toys.

Finally it was complete and I am now left with several bin bags that won’t fit in the bin, several bags for the charity shop, oh and of course several loads of washing~thanks son!

This afternoon we escaped the tidying up and headed for the seafront with Mum and Dad. It was lovely and sunny so we stopped for ice creams and of course coffee. Although I could of sat and gazed out at the sea all afternoon, all too soon it was time to go home via the shop as I still haven’t been food shopping oops!

After dinner and the usual Sunday night rituals and obliqitaory last minute homework~this boy is so unorganised who could he possibly take after?! I am now relaxing with a cheeky cider and having a think, just a little one about Christmas!

Happy Sunday everyone, I hope you have had a fabulous weekend.❤x

So it begins

So today #humpday has gone something like this….

Started off with all good intentions of getting lots done. First things first we got the food shopping which seemed to take forever and resulted in buying what felt like a whole freezer full of ice creams and nothing particularly useful thereafter!

Once home it then seemed like a good idea to try and find the paddling pool (of which we have multiple of!)after what seemed like an eternity moving boxes and literally praying that I wouldn’t see any mice or spiders in the garage, it turned out the damn thing was outside in a storage box all the time.

Obviously setting it up was never going to be an easy experience and after discovering that two vital plugs where missing I decided that I would mend it myself with some bottle tops and masking tape~blue peter eat your heart out! To be fair it was all going reasonably well until the camping chair I was sitting on broke and my backside went right through the material leaving me stuck in the chair on the hard ground, not my finest moment but hey ho you have to laugh.

By this point I was very hot and bothered but we were going out for a walk along the seafront which is always good. That said I somehow managed to go the wrong way (don’t even ask!) and arrived late as usual with no handbag or purse. I did however remember the doughnuts and some cold coffee which is just fab in this weather. The coffee decided to make a bid for freedom and leaked all into my bag and onto to the doughnuts too~marvellous.

Just when I felt that I was actually done for the day, it becomes apparent that I do in fact need two new tyres. Needless to say I am less than thrilled about that unplanned purchase even more so as it’s only day one of the kids being off for the summer.

I am now currently waiting patiently for my hot water bottle to freeze in an attempt to get cool tonight and maybe even get some sleep in my bed which could also be mistaken for a sauna!

Happy #humpday. ❤x

Exploring

As another wonderful weekend comes to a close,I’m thinking about all the lovely things we have done and just how lucky we are to have such amazing places on our doorstep.

We have walked,explored and laughed lots. Enjoying the beautiful sunshine and the breathtaking scenery.

I couldn’t ask for more.❤x

Fun

Another beautiful summer’s eve by the sea.


A lovely stroll along the seafront, stopping at the park and getting dizzy on the roundabout and having a turn on the zip wire well why not?!

As I watched my boy laughing and smiling at such simple things I stopped and thought when did life become so serious? Why can’t we all enjoy the little things, after all those little things create big memories and even bigger smiles.❤x

Saturday

So far today is going something like this~writing and then accidentally deleting a guest post all about the story of my blog so far.

Deciding that in my ongoing effort to organise at least one part of my life~getting the single bed frame out of the garage unaided whilst avoiding possible mice would be easy (it wasn’t!)

Having a meltdown outside Greggs because my boy decided that the ‘chicken bake’ he wanted to try somehow contained cheese (it didn’t) and nearly losing the plot because he didn’t believe me.

Almost crying when I realised that my girl had made me a coffee which I promptly forgot to drink, cold coffee is no laughing matter in this house especially when your nearly out of milk!

That pretty much sums up my Saturday, except I should add that we did manage a nice walk along the seafront, it was cold and the attitude from my lovely teenage daughter was certainly making its presence felt but it was definitely needed and certainly blew the cobwebs away.( the walk, not her attitude!)

All in all it’s been a good day besides the melt down but let’s face it I think we are all entitled to those and don’t they just go hand in hand with family life sometimes.❤️x
