The Final Countdown

In less than 4 weeks time thousands of Year 11 pupils across the country will be starting their study leave. For many of those students they will already have sat quite a few of their exams as it all kicks off 2 weeks on Monday. Scary stuff!! The kids are now starting to panic as it dawns on them that the past 5, no 11, years of schooling have been building up to these next few weeks. I love this time of year. It’s hectic, it’s mad busy, but there’s a different kind of buzz about school. Suddenly the after…

Love The Little Things #17

Wow, how are we on week 17 already? It really feels like this year is flying by. This week we have been loving: Read I love those posts that pop up on your FB that show text messaging gone wrong. Drives my husband mad as I sit on the couch laughing away to myself. One appeared this week and one in particular had me in a fit of giggles.

The Ordinary Moments – My Girls

Before O came along there were already 2 very special little people in our lives.  We were already parents to our lovely Lhasa Apso’s and as they are both female they become known as “the girls”. Mo, the gorgeous blonde, is getting on a bit.  She’ll be 10 in November and gets tired easily.  You will mostly find her chilling out upstairs in her bed in our room, trying to keep out of O’s way I think. Rox is the opposite, she will be wherever you are, demanding to be sat on your knee.  Or at the front window keeping…

Love The Little Things #16

It’s the last week of the Easter hols and its flown by, but I’ve loved every minute of being at home.  Really not looking forward to going back to work next week, but for now let’s focus on the highlights of the past 7 days. Read Trashy mags!  On Wednesday I left O with my mum and dad and went for my cut and colour, which is sadly needing to become a much more regular occurrence with the ever increasing number of grey hairs that seem to be appearing.  It does give me a good hour or so to catch…
