Having A Valentine’s Vent

What is it with Sunday’s ? You wake up, register that it’s the last day of the weekend and instantly feel low. All of a sudden your weekend feels as if it’s over when it’s actually only half done. Suddenly all those jobs you’ve been mentally listing throughout the week must get done and they must get done today, damn it!

Realistically you have a hope in hells chance of actually ticking all those boxes before Monday lands but God loves a trier. It’s especially funny if you’re  desperately trying to carry out said chores whilst entertaining children, you can kid yourselves that your lovely little ones are sugary sweet little helpers, but you and I both know that you may as well be sweeping leaves in a whirlwind.…

That hour meant that E had a chance to bounce out some of her Duracell bunny like energy before nap time, which in turn meant that nap time happened and I got time to have a brew and finish some bits and pieces around the house. I am going to be pretty damned busy in the next few weeks however, as I took a delivery today for over two years worth of kids photographs, the post lady did look at me like some sort of drug dealer when she had to go back and forth to her van several times in order to carry said order.…

The Here and Now

I’m never really sure where to begin when starting a new journal. It’s been a long time since I’ve had a blog and whilst I should really start from the very beginning and give you the back story, I’d probably only bore you and it’s most likely that over time my posts will yo-yo back and forth filling in the gaps. That and I’m a bit of a self confessed whinge and I do tend to harp on about the past all too often as I’m not like Elsa (I can’t ‘let it go’). That being said, this once I’m actually going to start from the most important point, the here and now.…
