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

Chocolate Thursday’s

You may recall our famous chocolate fridays~well may I now introduce you to chocolate thursday. Every thursday I collect the smallest members of the crazy gang from school and buy chocolate for all the kids (the biggest child included too hee hee).

I however have re~embarked on my weight watchers journey so treated myself to some more daffodils~don’t worry I realise I can’t eat them instead!
We also managed to grab a coffee this morning and mine looked pretty cool. x

All my love,all my life.

Dad this ones for you~I know you would be surprised that me your youngest daughter and biggest wimp going went and had this done today! I was quite suprised myself to be honest but these words~your words mean so much to me.

Dad I miss you more than words can say. I heard your song before I went in so I know I have your approval.❤x

Time Flies

Roughly 14 yrs ago this little one used to come to work with me.

Fast forward to today and my little bundle is now a teenager and going back to said nursery for work experience!

To say I feel old and cant believe it would be an understatement but there you have it.

Time flies and everything changes,we grow, we live,love and learn and in the blink of an eye things change and before you know it you go from having a tiny baby to an independent teen fast approaching the last year of high school education.

Dream big my girl.❤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

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

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
