It was the children’s Great Nana Margy’s ninety ninth Birthday today, can you Adam and Eve it? I certainly couldn’t imagine getting to ninety-nine and looking so bloody good for my age never mind getting to that age at all.

With just one year to go before Margy turns three figures I’m damned sure that she’s a family hero or a heroin should I say. I myself no longer have any Grandparents and haven’t for many years now, whereas my husband Paul still has his beloved Nana Margy and his Grandad Da which is wonderful to see and especially so for the children.… Read more from this post

It’s nippy now that it’s November, the heating has been cranked up, the washing line is no longer of use and the hats, scarves and gloves have become an everyday essential.

The children don’t seem to care less whether its hot, cold, wet or dry so long as they are able to get out and about to run amuck in the fresh air.

With less than fifty days to go before the big day arrives I have finally got my arse into gear in terms of Christmas. I’ve spent this afternoon pulling the contents of my wardrobe tops down to get an idea of the bits and pieces which I have managed to collect in the run up to the chaos which is Christmas.

Almost every Sunday whilst I am busy behind the bar my husband and the kids toddle off to my in-laws for Sunday dinner. Once upon a time I too used to join them for dinner but since my Sunday shifts started a couple of years ago I have been unable to do so, luckily I still get to enjoy a pub roast whilst working but I often wonder what my little ones are up to whilst I’m busy being a barmaid.

Once again I’m posting late in the day as we’ve had yet another busy day, I say busy when in actual fact I mean emotional. We took our beautiful basset hound to the vets earlier on this afternoon and received some rather devastating news which we have since spent hours absorbing and discussing as a family. I’ll write a separate post upon this shortly but as you can imagine, it’s not been the easiest of days so bear with me.

Fun With Face Paints

We’ve experienced some fairly stormy weather over the past couple of days but that hasn’t stopped us getting out and about to have fun with the children both indoors and out.… Read more from this post
