This last week has been absolutely lovely, lots of really special moments as my 40th birthday celebrations continued. I am so excited by the future at the moment as I have so many lovely things planned but I also have so much work and organising to do so much not get too carried away enjoying myself 😉 I am starting to learn Italian tomorrow evening and next Sunday is my first half marathon! Please keep your fingers crossed for me and if you would like to sponsor me then you can do so here! All bloggers and small businesses that sponsor me get a thank you link in my sidebar until the end of the year 🙂
I’m running a bit late with my #project365 this weekend because James whisked me away for the weekend to celebrate my 40th birthday. My wonderful friend had the kids for three nights and we got to have an amazing weekend in the Lake District. Today it is back to earth with a bump! So much to do and so little time!
Wow I can’t believe it’s now September!! Today is my last ever day in my thirties!!!! Yes tomorrow I will be 40! That is insane! The blog will be 7 next week too! I’m really ready for the kids to go back to school tomorrow so I can get some organisation back into my life. I love them being at home but any kind of routine we have flies out of the window for the summer and my house looks like a bomb site so I might be spending my 40th cleaning the house 😉 Read more
I don’t know about you but right now I am feeling very ready to get the kids back to school so we can get into some sort of routine again. I get no ‘me time’ what so ever during the holidays so I am very ready for just an hour or so to myself to catch up on some work or sit with a coffee and watch Netflix for an hour! The kids are sick of the sight of each other too and I am sick of being a constant referee! They behave wonderfully when they are on their own but once they are together they turn into tiny devils!
Blimey these weeks are flying by aren’t they! Just two weeks of the summer holidays left now! I think the kids are ready to head back to school now in all honesty and I am certainly ready for a bit of me time and catching up on work time! Life is all about half marathon training right now and I will be so pleased when the 24th of September is over so we can relax a little bit. It’s my 40th birthday in a couple of weeks and there is an awful lot of secret things going on around me at the moment, I can’t get anything out of the kids no matter how much I offer to pay them though… so I guess I will just have to be patient 😉 Read more
We had a really quiet week at home this week, Boo went to stay with my big sister for a few days so it was just Bugs and I for most of the week. He went on a couple of play dates and I got to enjoy a bit of time to myself. I can feel bad at times for not taking the kids out and doing loads of summer activities especially when looking at everyone’s summer photos on Facebook and Instagram! Everyone seems to be on holiday or at the beach, theme parks etc but I have to remind myself that we have already had a two week holiday in June and the kids are far luckier than I ever was when it comes to days out, holidays etc so spending some time at home really isn’t a bad thing!
Yesterday the baby of the family turned seven and we’ve been busy celebrating. He was much better this week so he was able to go to football everyday which he absolutely loved. He had his party on Friday and then Liam came home and we celebrated as a family yesterday. It was so nice to have all of my kids together for a couple of days. Sadly Liam has gone back home today as he has to work tonight but we should be seeing more of him after the summer as he is changing universities to be closer to home. Read more
