mini break

The trouble with a mini break is that it's just too MINI. Like we did loads of bike riding and tree trekking and swimming and eating and drinking and just general sitting about on arses. And the kiddos played a spot of badminton. And the other half taught them how to play pool. But we didn't really have time to do enough of it. What we really needed was a maxi break. Like two weeks. Or three. At least.

half term jaunt

Woohoo! We're going on a half term mini break to Center Parcs today. I booked it months ago when I remembered how crap winter is. Clever me 😌

weekend ups and downs

We went to see The Pet Shop Boys last night. God they were dull. Not my cup of tea at all. The other half thought they were ok though so we had to stay till the end. 😴

We legged it back to join our mates in the pub afterwards though. And we got a curry delivered as we arrived home. At 1 o'clock. In the morning. So all was not lost. Apart from a few hours sleep. But did I mention it's half term? Oh joy of joys, we have all week to catch up.

feel the lurve

Happy Valentine's Day peeps. Hope all your love dreams came true today.
The other half is taking me on a hot date to the cinema to see that classic love story Trainspotting2. Old romantic!

grey skies and crap weather

Still February.
Still winter.
Still bloody grey and cold.
Still taking the vitamin D. With naff all effect.


Apparently the sky is still blue beyond the clouds. But I wouldn't know about that because the sodding clouds never leave Yorkshire.

skeggy by the sea

I'm just about recovered from our weekend away. We went to Butlins Skegness on an 80's weekender to help celebrate someone's birthday.
For anyone not familiar with this great bastion of 1950's holiday culture, Butlins is not exactly known as a place to go for a luxury 5* exclusive break these days. Indeed I was informed shortly before we went that we had to provide our own towels! And the other half told me it was recently voted "9th worst holiday in the UK" so I can't say I was particularly looking forward to it.
But, you know what? We had a bloody ace weekend! Probably the 9th best weekend EVER! Helped along of course by the copious amounts of alcohol we consumed. And the rather amusing company. And the fancy dress. EVERYONE got dressed up on Saturday night. (We were Buck's Fizz, google them if you're too young to remember) I didn't stop laughing all weekend. Or drinking. Fanbloodytastic!

January 17

Well January lasted LikeForEVER didn't it?
On to February now, the month of 2 mini breaks, half term, valentines and sugar free-ness. For some. Not me. Obvs. It would be worse than January if I had to ditch the Green & Blacks.

This was the longest month ever 👇🏼...

cooking fatigue

God I'm so booooored of deciding what to cook. And sooooo bored of actually cooking it too. The kids are both fussy but in different ways and they hardly ever like the same meal. There are only so many times in one week you can make chicken fajitas. The other half never gets home till about 8pm so we eat together later. This means that sometimes I end up making 3 different meals. Most of the time actually. And I'm beyond bored of it.
I've already made 2 out of the 3 meals tonight but I have to go to the big one's (last ever) parents evening in a bit. And I can not be arsed cooking for us later. The other half is gonna have to magic up a takeaway on his way home. Or find us a chef. Or whisk me off to a michelin star restaurant. Cos I'm on strike. The kitchen is CLOSED.

lazy weekend

Does it mean you're getting old when you really enjoy a weekend of doing not-very-much? Or is it just a nice change from being super busy all the time? Thought so...
