Parent life

When you confiscate the teenagers phone and get constantly reminded by them that you have done so!

So far the conversations are going some thing like this~

‘What time do you finish your club after school?’
‘ Well it should be about 4.30pm but might be earlier or later, obviously I won’t be able to let you know as I don’t have my phone.’

‘ What time is Dad picking you up later?
He said he would text me and let me know but obviously I haven’t had my phone so…..’

So far this is my personal favourite ‘Have you done your revision for your test?’
‘No because EVERYTHING I need for that is on my phone which I don’t have.
Oh ok and you have no other means of getting the information that you need?’ ‘No of course not!’
‘No worries then I will just phone the school and explain the situation about you being phoneless and why you are in fact without said phone and maybe your teacher could help you??’

‘Urgh Muuuummmmmm!!!! Its fine I will manage!’

Funny that I thought you might.
Teenagers hey.❤ x

Family Time

Another wonderful weekend is drawing to a close. It’s been a busy one thats for sure. Friday night was an evening of giggles and wine with the girls.

Saturday morning saw an early start for a trip to Ikea~which was good fun all round and we celebrated surviving the trip with all 4 small people in tow with more wine and a chilled evening on the new cuddle chair which is now officially my favourite place to sit for sure!

Today we had a lovely sunny walk along the seafront spotting fishing boats and enjoying the sun. After some chocolate cake baking we had another stroll making the most of the afternoon sun and fresh air. Bedtime will be an early one for sure tonight.❤x

Chaos

If there was ever a photo that could sum up the chaos of my life this could be a definite contender! All I needed at 7.35am this morning, 10 minutes before I was due to leave home.

Its fair to say that I was more upset about losing a whole cup of coffee than the fact that it covered the carpet,wall and bedding! To make matters worse I then had to de~ice the car and scribble out a note for Helenas teacher which quite frankly looked like it had been written by a 5yr old.

All this is before 8am and without coffee! Hey ho it’s Thursday though which means we are one step closer to the weekend.x

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

Moments and Memories

Yesterday I upgraded my phone and this afternoon I was checking that everything had crossed over ok,especially my text messages. I came across some messages from my Dad and as it happened as I scrolled through,the message I came to was one arranging for us to go out for dinner with Mum and Dad the night before Dan and I went to Paris.

I read it and it made me smile,I could hear his voice in that text, I tried to read some more but the tears in my eyes wouldn’t let me.

It really is true when people say you never realise how moments quickly become a memory.

I know we are lucky very lucky to have such wonderful memories to cherish now and forever. ❤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
