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

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

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

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

Sleep?

Dear Sleep it would appear you dislike me as much as I dislike you but come on can’t we call a truce or something?

This is getting crazy, the heat clearly isn’t helping but even so can’t you give a girl a break, the occasional reasonable night’s sleep really isn’t much to keep me functioning and even coffee is struggling to help out!

Between lack of shut eye, night terrors and involuntarily falling out of bed I am beginning to start taking this insomnia business personally although quite frankly it’s not me it is you!

I would be quite happy to negotiate with you, and would appreciate your input into this matter.

I look forward to hearing from you in due course.

Many thanks

Nat.❤x

(A sleep deprived, unorganised and chaotic woman, surviving on coffee, coffee, more coffee and the occasional few hours of sleep!).

Day off?!

Today is my day off if there really is such a thing. I started early with the sole intention of going into one shop to take something back, having parked just outside town I was making my way quite happily when I realised I had left the one bag I needed in the car. So I headed back to the car to collect it.

Next I arrive at the shop to be informed it can’t be returned in store~marvellous!

Having congratulated myself on parking just outside out of town which only cost me 50p I decided that a trip to Costa could of course be justified, I’m yet to justify nipping into Greggs too but If you give me time I’m sure I’ll find a reason why an apple Danish for breakfast was necessary!

By the time I got home there was washing to sort and food shopping to do.

I’ve been put on an almost total coffee ban by my loved ones and have survived the day on only two cups which I feel is pretty impressive.

That said it’s been a nice sunny day and although I am on a mission to try and lose my tan lines and get some colour on my legs I’ve spent the day in jeans so whilst the rest of my body continues to tan, my legs are super white and quite frankly I look like some kind of zebra with odd stripes hee hee.

Still it’s only Monday so with a bit of luck if the weather continues to be nice I might just get them to look slightly off white before I have to wear a dress in a few weeks time.

Hoping you’ve all had a happy Monday.❤x

Our~Time

Life is busy, lets face it quite often there is just not enough hours in the day.            So when time allows there is nothing I like more than a cosy date night at home.

With four small people in our lives, having some time together is precious and something we grab with both hands to make the most of whenever we can.When we do get some much needed wind down time, we like to make sure we have all the essentials.

Obviously we need to decide what we are going to watch, this could be a difficult decision but one thing we can both agree on is that whatever we watch we want good quality viewing.

Click here to view the fabulous range Smart tv panasonic https://www.panasonic.com/uk/consumer/televisions/HDTV.html

Panasonic have a great range of smart televisions that offer superb picture quality with an extensive range of channels and entertainment features.
With screen sizes and budget to suit everyone’s needs.

Moving on to the next essentials.

First ensure you have wonderful company to join you (never a problem here!).

Next up food and drink, I cant think of anything better than a nice glass(or 2) of wine and some yummy chocolate to enjoy.

Candles are a lovely touch and provide a nice warm ambience, during the winter we will often have the fire on too, again adding a warm cosy glow.

Have a choice of programmes/films to watch,In my case I often find tissues are handy too,as we all know I am a soppy devil at heart so if we are watching anything vaguely romantic I am likely to shed a tear or 20!

There you have it, my top tips for a cosy date night in~just make sure you stay awake long enough to enjoy it.

Busy

It was a breakfast on the run kind of morning here today.

Although let me clarify that clearly there was no actual physical running from me~a bit of power walking maybe or perhaps I was just jet propelled out of the house by the stress of my teenagers attitude which is larger than life this fine sunny morning!

Either way I grabbed an unhealthy choc chip swirl and shoved that in my mouth on my way to work.

I’m telling myself it’ll be ok because I did get up and do my exercises and I then walked the almost two miles to work, so let’s hope thats taken care of those naughty calories!

Have a happy Tuesday everyone.❤️x
