#MySundayPhoto – Hello Autumn

I’ve felt pretty ropey over the past two or three days thanks to the cocktail of medication which I have been prescribed to combat numerous ‘women’s issues’. Nausea is kicking my backside and whilst I’ve just about managed to make it through my bar shifts I’ve spent the remainder of the weekend slumped on the sofa nibbling at ginger biscuits and sipping flat cola. Give it a week or two and hopefully my body should adjust, I blumming hope so as I’m fed up of feeling as if I’ve taken a ride on the waltzers!

My nausea has become so extreme that I’ve had to take breaks for air whilst driving to and from work which is by no measure a lengthy drive. …

#LittleLoves – Misheard Lyrics, Manic Street Preachers & Starting School

Well blow me it’s Friday again! I guess I’d better put the wine down for a moment and figure out a few #LittleLoves from the past seven days or so.

 

Read

Other than emails, texts, social media and such-like I haven’t read a great deal at all. I must start reading more often and now that I have a little extra time given that E has recently started School I guess I’ll have plenty of time for reading in the near future. I guess on that note I should take a look at my Kindle and download some ‘autumn reads’ to get stuck into!…

DIY SOS

Theres so much that Paul and I want to get done around the house, sadly though as money doesn’t grow on trees we will have to bide our time with the DIY project list and learn to live with the cloudy windows and eighties style kitchen for the time being.

I don’t think that watching back to back episodes of My Dream Home really helps the situation as the more opportunity for development we see the more we find ourselves discussing ‘what could be’ in our own home.

Should we happen to fall upon £40k without taking out a some form of finance , winning the lottery or selling a kidney then at least we have the ideas and plans at the ready for the go ahead.…

Starting School

Today marked our little ladies first ‘official day’ at Primary School, I say ‘day’ but I technically mean ‘afternoon’ as for the next three weeks the children are attending half-day sessions to settle into school life.

Not only was it E’s first day but it was also J’s first day in year four. He left for School early this morning with his Dad and a big grin plastered on his face.

I thought that I had allowed myself plenty of time to get E ready for School, to feed her dinner and to be able to send her off in style.…

#LivingArrows – Beach Buddies 36/52 (2017)

Welcome to another instalment of #LivingArrows, the last #LivingArrows post prior to the start of yet another academic year!

Whilst most of the UK have returned to school, my children don’t start back until Thursday which gives us that little bit of extra time together to enjoy activities while things are a little quieter.

I’m all for jumping in the car and heading out for the day but quite often I find it’s the simple things which work best and the children seem to enjoy the most. A simple trip to the beach and a stroll on the sand is often far easier and cheaper than setting up camp in a random theme park or worse, soft-play hell.…
