Wedding bells..

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't believe this time next year she'll be at school! I think the whole thing was a little overwhelming for her though she wouldn't say, she's a brave little thing, you really have to coax these things out of her. She like that if she hurts herself to she's all "I'm fine, I'm fine!" until there's no one about and then she'll finally cave in and have a little cry. I love my daughter!

Anyways, along with the course I offered to make my friends wedding invites and they are finally finished! yay! You have no idea how long these have taken, between deciding on themes and colour and that darn glitter which took hours! But now they're finito and I'm so happy! One less thing to think about doing and then feeling guilty about for not doing in the evenings.

I'm loving the beautiful autumn weather and "It's beginning to look a lot like Christmas...soon the bells will ring..." get excited!!

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 with cake, music, dancing, playing, days out, train rides, lalaloopsys! Yes since my last post we actually now have the FULL collection! I kid you not! and I can't just blame May because I became obsessed with them too! Seriously they are like gold dust these things you have to strike while the iron's hot and buy them while you can before they sell out. Otherwise you end up on ebay paying extortionate (is that how you spell that?) prices! Lalaloopsy's were the theme of May's birthday, the cake was a joint effort between me and my mum, she made the cake I made the decorations.

We has a great day out to good ole Blackpool on the Train - May is train obsessed! We have many a great afternoon just down at the train station munching chips when I'm stuck for things to do, she loves it! Anyways we went after school on Friday afternoon (she just does mornings) with Granmda, had a shop in the afternoon and then a visit to Harry Ramsdons was in order. Yum! Then we decided to bus it Freeport while we waited for it to get dark to see the lights, only we didn't time it very well, we thought it was open late but nope, it was a ghost town! Oh well nevermind, they had an ASDA So we wasted some time in there, good old Asda price. The bus ride back was horrendous. I have never in my life seen as many teenage yobs taking over a bus! My god! I knew teenagers had a bad name these days but I'd never actually witnessed that kind of behaviour for my self. It was like being trapped on a school bus, and just as you think it couldn't get any worse, more and more kept getting on at each stop. The bus was actually swaying! Craziness! They were all of 15/16 on their way into Blackppol at night..err hello parents? Do you not even care that your kids are blatantly off to partake in some underage drinking in BLACKPOOL and then have like an hour bus journey home? Unbelievable! May kept shouting that it was too noisy and they were so naughty! hehe! She's not wrong there!
Anywho, once we finally got off the bus ride from hell, The lights were pretty good and there was some kind of fireworks show, so bus journey aside a great day.

Well I'll leave it there for now, more later.
Lotsa love xxx
