So it’s looking like the incarceration might be eased soon ... at least it is for me. I am so over covid. Having now had the magic bullet (vaccine) I’m packing the kids back to school. Before I get lambasted let me tell you that I have taken this pandemic very seriously, observed the ‘rules’ … Continue reading How ya doing?
So... here we are - incarcerated once more with our delightful offspring, with the impossible task of education otherwise or as in my case - education of a different kind via roadblox and YouTube (on loop). For now my day consists of trying to prise kids out of bed by lunchtime, coaxing them to get … Continue reading Lockdown diary #take3 day 2
Paradise it certainly isn’t, at least for the majority of us stuck at home with our kids, husbands/partners 24/7 ... unless of course you are one of those mummies relishing every minute with your little darlings - crafting, playing bored games/baking and throwing yourself into a relentless timetable of homeschooling. Let’s talk about homeschooling: put … Continue reading Lockdown in paradise …
I was suddenly reminded today that I haven't posted on here for a long time. Why is that? I can only briefly summarise a combination of reasons... Life has been busy Actually that's not entirely accurate. This last year has been terrible. Incredibly stressful and we have had a few crisis along the way since … Continue reading After a long hiatus …
Bewilderment and shock descended on Sunday morning when we woke up to find one of our Guinea pigs was poorly. The worrying discovery was swiftly followed by a mercy dash to a local vet, a difficult decision was made, the grim task of signing of consent forms were completed (first time for me and I'm … Continue reading When a pet dies …
Sorry for the radio silence just lately. We've been moving. Moving and building, or rather the builders have been building, drinking tea and smoking fags. Cos that's what builders do. And they have dodgy ringtones that play loud "I'm too sexy for my shirt" when you are trying to discuss serious stuff with them like … Continue reading Would you like some tea with your sugar?
I rushed out the other day to post some last minute cards and presents, just about caught the post but felt the tut tut tings of the people in the post office clearly horrified that I hadn't sent the stuff in August. I literally ran in with half wrapped items yanking things off the shelves … Continue reading Spontaneity or just recklessness?
Peace for mankind, nothing (I've got everything I need) sponsor a goat in Sudan instead. Then again not. Because actually I quite fancy some stuff. I'm not that virtuous. And here are some bits that would go down very well on the day ...(but are not going to materialise ... we are in the middle … Continue reading All I want for Christmas….
It's Halloween!! Yippee!! We've taken the kids to the nearest organic pumpkin field and purchased the biggest orange vegetable that they could carry (actually we didn't - mr fhb picked up a couple in Tesco's the other day) we've hollowed it out, wrestled with slimy innards and crudely carved some sort of 'face' with a … Continue reading Halloween for dummies
I'm not going to tell you that I embraced my grey hairs when they came through, I went grey too young - in my twenties and for years I fought to cover them up, but last year the greys won, they populated about 90% of my head, so I gave up. I'm not ecstatic about … Continue reading Grey hair don’t care – but what do I wear?
