buzz off

We have this flowery bush which is so overgrown that when we reverse our cars down the drive we crash into it. Every day. But we can't trim it because there are always a zillion bees on it. They get really pissed off if we interfere with their pollen collection. And we don't want to upset the bees. 
The other day we found a sad looking bee in the house ...on the windowsill. It was exhausted from trying to get out of the window by flying into it. We tried to revive it with the old sugar and water trick. But it didn't work. The bee is sadly deceased. 
As if in revenge for our bee-haviour (see what I did there) last night I was minding my own business in bed.. fast asleep.. in the miiddle of the night.. when I was suddenly rudely awoken. By a bloody bee stinging me on the foot! 
I'll bee glad when it's winter.
(Not really. Everyone knows I bloody hate winter)

day off

This week I have worked my little arse off. And counted down to our holiday. 
Next week I will be doing the same. And quite probably the week after that.
I'm not moaning.
It's good to be busy.
I just faff about if I haven't got a ten page ToDo list.
But a little break is always welcome so today I'm off to the pub with my besties. See ya tomorrow hangover!

screen time

The youngest is back from camp.
I think?
We haven't actually seen much of him. He went straight to his room as soon as he arrived and has been catching up with his phone and computer ever since. I reckon he missed them more than he missed us.

workity work work

You would think that with the youngest away all week and the oldest being practically an adult that I would have had loads of time this week to sit on my arse with the old feet up.
Well I honestly don't know where the week has gone.
I have absolutely bloody loads of work on at the mo and it seems that without the enforced stoppages caused by school runs and feeding time at the zoo I just work. And work some more. And suddenly it's 9pm and I haven't eaten all day. Apart from a full bar of Green & Blacks with ginger. But that doesn't count.
I seriously need to have a word with myself cos one day soon they'll have left school and buggered off. And I'll just be working 24/7. A sad little old lady bent over my computer. Drawing cats.

spring bank

The youngest jetted off to deepest darkest Norwich today for the week on scout camp. One teen down. It's half term for the other one so she'll no doubt spend half the day in bed and the other half staring into the (empty) fridge.
I reckon I'm in for a peaceful week.
Woo!

iPad faffery

I've taken to doodling on procreate whilst watching a bit of crap telly on a night. I'm liking it. Just wish someone would invent all those brushes for Illustrator. Please. Someone? Ta x

sunny day sunday

No chilling in the garden for me and the dog this morning. We went on a bit of a walk to collect my car, abandoned at my sister’s last night after an overindulgence of prosecco. We were celebrating. Royal wedding, sunshine and occupied kids. Winning at life 😀

drinking on a school night.

The other half is dragging me out to see a lesser known 80's band tonight. I wasn't a fan in the 80's. I'm not a fan now. But a night out is a night out right? I'll just get pissed. I've only got a big important meeting in Manchester tomorrow. What could possibly go wrong?

noisy crow

There's one bird in particular in our garden who likes to make a lot of noise. Mostly at around 4.30 am. It's not even a nice noise. But it's VERY loud. The other half says it's a crow. I say it's a pain in the arse and it needs to go live somewhere else. Especially on a weekend.
