I’m Tired And It’s Only Tuesday!

Ooooosh I’m exhausted! How can I be tired and it’s only Tuesday?! The kids seem to have settled easily back into the routine,  I however seem to have fallen off the ball so to speak and am dithering over which cheques need writing for which activities, which dates need noting down and despite trying to get with it I’m a hopeless case.

Give it a few weeks and I’m sure things will settle down a bit and I’ll find my feet. I took some time out this evening and hopped across to Ambers for a full body massage. It was amazing as always and I’ve made myself a personal promise that I’ll go more often as I sure as hell need the downtime, the time out and the tension relief.…

Ahoy Matey! Welcome Aboard #TuesdayTreasures

Welcome to this weeks #TuesdayTreasures blog linky share. #TuesdayTreasures is for bloggers from all walks of life, whether you are a parenting, lifestyle or any other type of blogger you are welcome to join in and to share your posts new and old.

The Blog With The Booty

Each week one post which has been added to the #TuesdayTreasures linky is selected by myself to share with you all. Having recently read David Walliams ‘Sofia Sofa’ to my children I got to thinking how quickly and easily can become addicted to ‘screen time’. From Television to Tablets children are like little sponges and much like a moth to a light they find it hard to resist lolling in front of the flicker of a screen.…

#LivingArrows – Loving Lowther 17/52 (2017)

The holidays are officially over, the kids are back at Nursery and School and the house suddenly seems a whole lot quieter. I’m all for some peace and quiet but suddenly things feel rather empty, I miss the chaos!

I guess I can finally clean the house top to bottom without the kids having turned out yet another box of mini-figures, Lego or god knows what else they fancy throwing all over every other surface. Still, I miss them both and having received E’s school admission results earlier this week it’s only a matter of time before both of my little ones are out of the house for the majority of the day.…

#MySundayPhoto – Lowther Castle

Last week Paul and I took the sprogs to Lowther Castle for the day. We were graced by the good weather but sadly cursed by the bank holiday traffic. What should have taken us just over an hour and a half in the car took us almost two hours or more.

Seriously, I must have a bladder the size of a pea as having drunk way too much coffee prior to setting off it was actually me that seemed to cause the hold up with endless pit stops whilst on the road.

Having finally arrived at the castle we settled for dinner in the courtyard (a picnic prepared by Paul).…

Feeling Ancient & Self Critical

My apologies for not having posted this earlier but I’ve had a full on day with work then entertaining the kids on their final evening before returning to Nursery and School tomorrow.

I never usually say this but I am actually looking forward to getting the routine back into motion. As much as I love having the kids home for the holidays there are only so arguments over Lego and such like that I can withstand.

I’d rather not go grey before my time. Having sat with the hubby and the kids watching an episode of Gladiators from 1995 I already feel fairly ancient as it is!…
