Love The Little Things #24

At the minute it feels like I have a much neglected little blog. This week has been slightly crazy and I’ve barely had the time to check in at all. Hubby has been down in London for the past 2 days, my Year 11’s, 12’s and 13’s have all had exams this week (so lots of last minute revision sessions) plus we’ve had the builders at home so we are living like vampires in the house of eternal darkness. Perfect timing just as the sun decides to show it’s face. Throw into the mix I’m in the middle of exam…

Love The Little Things #23

Friday seems to be coming round more quickly as each week passes.  After last weeks holiday in the sun it was back to earth with a bump and straight back to work.  We are entering the last half term before the summer hols and as Year 11 and Year 13 have officially left (although they are still popping in for revision sessions) work is a lot less hectic than it has been.  The added bonus is that I now only teach first period one day a week so for the rest of the time it doesn’t matter if I’m rushing…

I’m A Post Holiday Slob

I take holiday planning quite seriously.  It’s booked months in advance, so we have something to look forward to.  A few new pieces are carefully chosen to update my summer wardrobe and the holiday haircut is booked in.  Insurance, check.  Currency, check.  Passports and all vital documents, all checked and safely secured in their travel wallet ready to go into the hand luggage.  The taxi-man (or Dad as he prefers to be called) is booked and we’re ready to go! Unfortunately all of my enthusiasm has been used up in the before holiday phase, so there’s not that much left for our homecoming!  I wish I could be one of those people…

Ola, little love ladies! Hope you’ve all been having a fantastic week! It’s Friday already so as usual I’m linking up with the lovely Morgana at butwhymummywhy to celebrate the little things going on in the past week. Since Sunday we’ve been holidaying in Spain with the in-laws, doing not a lot really but it has been so nice to chill out in the sun and just relax. We’ve had a couple of cloudy days but generally the weather has been great, sunny but not too hot which means my blond hair, blue eyed boy can play in the sun…

Love The Little Things #21

How gorgeous was the weather last weekend? It really makes a difference when the sun comes out, you can’t help but be in a happy mood and it’s led into a pretty fab week. The highlights are: Read Not that much to be honest, we’ve been outdoors most of the week, O sulks when we try to come in.  I have been reading my lovely Year 11’s yearbooks as they left this week.  I love the “awards” they do in there and whilst they won’t be funny to anyone who doesn’t know them they had me chuckling and what a lovely…
