Now the kids are back at School, I am finally getting myself back into some form of routine and it feels really good. In just three days I’ve managed to get a shit load of jobs done and hopefully come this time next week when E starts her ‘morning’ School routine I might just find a little time to myself.

Despite E being out of the house for only two hours each afternoon I still miss her terribly and it doesn’t matter how many people tell me that she’s settled and safe, I cannot help but to worry. Our little Princess is no longer a pre-schooler, she is now a fully fledged four-year old with attitude and shiny, patent school shoes to boot!… Read more from this post

Please excuse my blogging silence, I haven't felt 100% this week and as a result have done very little other than keep the kids entertained or at least alive over the past few days.

Well the sunshine has packed up its bags and buggered off back to wherever it came from. The rain has returned forcing us back indoors which is becoming rather frustrating for both E and I given that last week we were out and about having fun down at the park and going for walks on the beach.

Ah well, we will have to suffice with board games, play dough, baking, painting, crafting and good old Disney DVD’s until the sunshine makes a come back. I actually quite enjoy sitting at the table playing games with the kids despite having to rig the games by hook or by crook so that the kids get to win.… Read more from this post
