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

  3. I've tried to comment on this twice and it didn't work,not sure why.
    I love her cake. It is amazing, a work of art. They are lovely,individual dolls. Lots of little girls here get given Barbies. I hate Barbie!
    I remember going to see the lights when I was little and I loved it.Harry Ramsden's too!I am slightly homesick when I think about fish and chips.
    I was going to message you and ask where you had gone. Glad to have you back, I have missed you.
    Ooh,my tights were from Tesco. They had floral ones too. About six or seven quid i reckon though, which is not cheap to me. I reckon Primark could be better. I so wish we had one here. Stuff can be very overpriced here.
    Teenagers are a bit much sometimes. I used to work with them and most were great, but some had never had any boundaries and so became pretty unpleasant.
    Great to have you back. xxx
