I swear I must've been a Dung Beetle in a past life....

My house is literally covered in sayings, and life affirming quotes, but let me tell you sometimes no matter how hard you try to shrug off the bad and look onwards and upwards life has a horrid way of just knocking you right back down again! I am literally sick to death of having constant struggles! I am just in the midst of one of those dips in life where I really just want to stick my head down the toilet, press the flush and hope I end up in some magical mystical land where everything's all rainbows and unicorns! so I realise i'm not thinking as clearly as I could.

 Someone once said to me, look life sucks, some people just have it easy and some people just..don't! and how true my friend, how true! I swear to god I must've been a dung beetle in a past life because I just can't catch a break! Now I realise I'm looking down the barrel of some major doom and gloom here, and the rainbow will come again, a smile will again slap itself upon my face and in turn, to…

"It Does Not Do To Dwell On Dreams and Forget To Live."

hallo hallo! How ya diddling? My goodness it's been a long time since I last wrote. So much has changed and almost nothing at all has. I always find writing blogs so hard, it's like if I was chatting and laughing away with a friend and then someone shoved a camera in my face I'd just go all shy and not know what to say. My daughter on the other hand does not have that problem, although that may or may not have something to do with the fact that she has basically grown up - like most kids these days - with a camera or phone or ipad or tablet thrust in front of her face whilst she is asked to continously say "cheeeeese!" whilst the perfect shot is achieved. I am not even comfortable with the world of 'selfies!' although my mum and I have taken to sending the occasional selfie to each other for a laugh. People actually must spend hours taking pictures of themselves to post on facebook and instagram! I know I'd have to take at least 100 before I got …

Im a huge procrasinator when it comes to actually sitting down and doing things I need to do within a certain time scale, no matter what good intentions I have I always end up being last minute with things. I've recentely started doing an online computer course, I can use a computer but don't have any formal IT qualifications so thought it may be helpful, anyways I literally have to force myself to do it and it's hard work. The internet is just so tempting for a quick check of a blog here or a little peak on ebay there, how kids get any homework doen these days I'll never know! To think we never even had access to computers when I was at school, let alone the world wide web! Do they even actually hand write anything these days? crazy thought eh! I went to look around a big school for May this past week and they were all sat there in class with their own laptops, I couldn't quite believe my eyes!
Anyways, the school was nice, going to see another next week, I can…

Autumn already ...

Hi all!

How on earth did it get to be October already! The summer, if you can call it that!?, flew by and oops! I didn't post at all. I kept thinking I'll post tomorrow and then well I didn't, but thanks for the nudge Gem, here I am updating my blog - finally!

Well where to start. The weather, as we all know, sucked for want of a better word. I had great plans of all these things to do with May and did, well not a lot of anything really yet as always we still managed to fill our days. I was feeling a bit 'eugh' during the the summer to be honest, probably the weather didn't help but I'm really must better now and am actually looking forward to getting all snuggled up in my winter coat...not long til Christmas now either and I am like a small child at Christmas I tell ya, I'm excited already!

My little one recently turned 4! I can hardly believe I am the mum of a 4 YEAR OLD!! Erm hello? How did 4 years just past by?? We has an amazing birthday (week) filled…

May Spells a lot...

Image
Well I caved (well Grandma did) and May now has her very first (mini) lalaloopsy doll, Bea Spells a Lot. Love love love. My mum and I are now addicted to finding these little treasures they're like gold dust you can't find them anywhere, we're stocking up when we can for the little one's birthday. She has a poster and is so excited to collect them. I like to think collecting something teaches good lessons but I think I'm just making myself feel better! hehe!
Anyways Bea spells a lot is made from an old school uniform, so goes the tale and of course is an excellent speller. This inspired May to practice, practice, and practice some more and I know I'm biased but I think this is pretty darn GREAT for a THREE YEAR OLD. Super proud mum moments! Her writing and spelling is coming on in leaps and bounds AND more importantly she LOVES to practice. I never force her into it she asks me! I'm all for letting kids learn at there own pace and encouraging everything as a…

Sunshine on a rainy day

Time seems to have completely run away with me lately I've had lots I've wanted to blog about but just haven't been able to find the time lately. Last weekend was awful weather wise, lots of miserable rainy days but then this beautiful parcel arrived from Tracy over at her beautiful blog
Thank you soo much! I was over the moon (though not quite as much as May) to receive such a beautiful package (thank you for being so patient Tracy yours is on the way to you now, I hope it arrives safely soon)
My daughter and me are huge fans of Tracy's beautiful handmade dolls, we now have 3 of her creations and May decided (all on her own I might add) to name them, Milly Molly Mandy! very creative I thought, she's a big fan of the Milly Molly Mandy books and sings the song ALLLL DAYY LONG! Seriuosly when my friends came to visit a few months ago they had it stuck in their heads for weeks afterwards, anyways, I was super excited to get such a thoughtful package and me and Tracy s…
