My week in photos! 

Last week sure was a fun and busy time with family and friends.

Here the kids enjoyed a run in the reeds. We had just attended: Music in the Park in Nork woods! 

Loads of fun things for the kids and fab listening to some live music. Just love the summer activities that are around for us to enjoy.   
  

Here we are enjoy lunch on the beach with a great friend who have helped us and been there when we needed her during this big move. Thanks Stephanie x  

Our new home…oh I am buzzing and can’t wait to move my family into our new place.   I arranged a gathering in the park for the mums and the kids to mingle before we move away. 

We all had a great time and will miss you all very much! I certainly wil miss this park!   
    

A lovely nursery mummy arranged this fun and tasty ‘International picnic’ for a few of us and they put on a disco too. The girls loved dressing up and they even had the paddling pool out. Thank you so much Clara for your hospitality. 

    
 Huge thank yous to these ladies and so many other special people who made our leaving drinks. 

We sure had a great time and so thankful for all our cards and gifts!

The 2 P’s-Packing & Parenting! 

Well who said PACKING and PARENTING during the summer holidays was easy….might need to be put in a straight jacket with a bottle of wine by next week lol!!! 

Ok a little harsh but when you find things you haven’t had out for months to pack away, then the kids decide to play with it, it’s just not gonna work for me and the packing will take slightly longer in that case. What to do? 

Now people have said, get the kids involved and get them to help with the packing of there things but Iv watched this happen and found a large box had about 4 things in it and they where just about ready to tape it up lol.  I’m sure I could have put a lot more bits in that box.

Today I have just done what I can, played with the kids and taken them to the park for some fresh air. Luckily they are heading out with their Aunty this afternoon so I get some me time. Praise the Lord!! 

I have 3 more days of chaos but luckily the eldest is heading to a holiday camp for one of the days and hubby is around Thursday to dismantle and clean with me. 

Can’t wait to get the move done and dusted! We will miss Sutton oh so very much! 

Anyone have moving tips, packing tips or just any parenting tips for us during this exciting yet nervous time for my family?

Ready for New Beginnings!

I have been away a long time now from the ‘blogging community’ and I feel lost and disconnected from my blogger friends. 

I haven’t been away because I no longer want to write or share my day to day going on’s…but simply because it’s been a hectic few months. The last few months have been up down up down and now after so long, I have reached an exciting yet very nervous stage of craziness lol! 

We are MOVING in just over a week to a new county, new town, new home and we can’t bloody wait. We are starting a fresh with everything and it’s about bloody time too. 

Hubby and I have talked for a few years now about whether to move or not. I’m just so bloody happy now to tell people that we have actually done it and we are not scared of change. To some who probably thought ‘your all talk and no action’ well its finally here and we say farewell next Saturday. 

I certainly will miss the lovely school mums Iv grown closer to the last year or so and my special school friends who have been in my life since I moved to London. You will all be missed but we are only 1.5 hours drive away….come visit!!! 

I’m hoping once the move is complete and we have settled well, I will then come back from the dead lol and write again. Much more to talk about too…sun, seasides, jobs, schools, holidays, our home etc! 

Hope to come back soon fresh faced and ready to write!

D for Dentist Drama!  

So we all pretty much hated the trip to the dentist when we were little, didn’t we? 

I sure did and I remember mum having to bribe me to go. “You can have a toy if you listen at the dentist” 

Oscar my eldest has always been very good going to his check ups and so has my youngest Caitlyn, but all of a sudden the trip we went to 2 weeks ago and the trip we did today was a complete and utter flop. Madam has had a complete breakdown on the dentist chair and refused to have anything prodded in her mouth even if  our dentist is a good friend. 

She was threatened with us saying we would have to take her to the hospital if she doesn’t listen now. That still didn’t make any difference. There was no way she was having her teeth checked. 

Sadly she does need 2 teeth sorted out as she has a hole in each tooth (bad mummy 😪) sweets and treats have been reduced or at least tried to be reduced to ‘not much’ but even that can be tricky. What to do? 

The appointments are rushed and myself and Caitlyn are put under pressure, so we are hoping to have another appointment before we head to Whitstable, taken over two apps and daddy is for sure taking her this time. Is it awful to say that I can’t cope we her melt down. Just hope daddy can do a better job at sorting her out lol! 

Anyway wish us luck😱😢😆😂!!!!!!!!!
