Hi everyone. Anyone else feeling really overwhelmed with everything they need to do before Christmas? Yes? Good to know I’m not alone! I really need to get my Christmas shopping finished. I just don’t know what to buy anyone this year! I know it will all fall into place and if it doesn’t it won’t be the end of the world but I tend to go into panic mode if I’m not organised and I’m really not organised! I’m finishing work for the day now and I’m going to make a big list of everything I need to do to try and make me feel a bit better… I really want to start enjoying the build up to Christmas!Read more
Good morning everyone! How are you all? I had a huge clear out yesterday, the car is full of stuff to donate to charity and we ordered the main presents last night so I am feeling a bit more organised than I was last week. Boo was away on a cross country course this weekend so we had a quiet weekend at home with Bugs just getting stuff done. I did get to go out on Saturday night for a Christmas meal and a few drinks which was fun. I’m now looking forward to the kids breaking up so we can all relax and enjoy Christmas but before that we have three very busy weeks left at school; full of pantomime trips, discos and the usual Christmas activities.

I feel like the last week just went by in a whirlwind, I was so busy with something on every single day. I’m rather pleased it is Monday morning and there is just me in the house… I really need to sit and think and get some plans in place for Christmas. I did start my shopping this weekend though and feel like I know now what I am getting everyone so that’s a good place for me to be in. Did you manage to get any good bargains this weekend?
Here is our last week in pictures… Read more
As much as I love doing the project 365 I think I have come to the realisation that this will be my last year doing it. I’ve been doing it for so long now and my kids are getting a bit sick of me and my camera, so I’m going to release the pressure a bit next year and concentrate on some other photo projects instead. I’ll still be taken loads of photos but I won’t let myself feel forced into taking them like I do at the moment. Read more
Hi everyone. I can’t believe it’s Monday again already. The weeks are just flying by now aren’t they! It will be Christmas Day before we know it and I haven’t even thought about a single present yet! I really need to start thinking about it! I get later and later each year. I really want to go away for Christmas this year so I’m on the look out for some late Christmas deals… do let me know if you see anything. Read more
Our last week has been pretty awesome, the kids were off school as it was half term and we spent lots of time together doing family things. James took Friday off so we had a long weekend and today Bugs had an inset day so me and him have just been to the cinema and out for lunch. It’s been the perfect end to a wonderful half term. I’m kind of sad that the kids have to go back to school but I really do need to get some work done, my house could do with a bit of a clean and besides there are only seven weeks until the Christmas holidays!!!!
During October I am taking part in #Blogtober18, where I write a blog post everyday for the whole month and today I am sharing my week 43 photos from our project 365 which is where I take a photo every single day. I always record this weekly on the blog but you can see my daily postings on my personal Instagram here. I love this project, I have been doing it straight for 8 years now, it is getting much harder as the kids get older though!
During October I am taking part in #Blogtober18, where I write a blog post everyday for the whole month. Mandi over at Big Family Organised Chaos is hosting a linky each day where she also gives a prompt for us to write about. Today’s prompt is ‘Unusual Pets’ we don’t actually have any pets and the most exciting pet we have ever had passed away earlier this year… he was a house bunny called Merlin and we loved him very much. So today I’m going to be sharing my #project365 photos from the last week instead 🙂 Read more
