mum's taxi services

I've just completed the final school run ...until September.
I now have a summer in the company of two teenagers to look forward to. Without the company obvs. Cos it will mostly involve them staying in their rooms and the only conversations we'll have will be me telling them to get out of bloody bed NOW. 
And them asking what there is to eat. 
And the lifts of course.
Don't forget Mum's Taxi Services are always available and always free of charge when you need a lift.
Happy summer!

all the time in the world

With the kids breaking up this week and just 4 weeks to go before we jet off on our jollies I am beginning to feel a little panic stricken at the To Do list.
This happens every year of course.
I annoy the hell out of everyone with my stressing and moaning and promise to be super organised next time.
It's never gonna happen.

Meanwhile I drew this whilst away on a rather fabulous weekend in the Isle of Man with the other half. Child free. With all the time in the world. While he was watching the World Cup Final. Which was bloody dull.

it's coming home

I'm generally not a football fan. It bores my pants off. I try to watch it but find my mind drifting to more interesting matters. Like doing the Tesco online order. Or wondering how I'm gonna pick two kids up from two different locations at the same time a week on Wednesday. Sometimes I realise that I don't actually know which way our team are playing but it's nearly half time so it's too late to ask.

But the World Cup. Different. I like football in the World Cup. Especially when it's in the pub. Which is where we'll be tonight.

summer lovin'

The 987 days that comprised the longest winter ever invented are a distant memory at the mo. We're having the longest continuous spell of sunshine since the Dark Ages and I bloody love it. All those sweaty moaners complaining that it's toooo hot better stay out of my way.

milking it

As if it wasn't bad enough being woken at 4.30 every morning by the sodding birds having a rave outside the window, I have also discovered that some of our neighbours have their milk delivered. I know this because the loudest milkman in Yorkshire arrives every morning just as I'm falling back to sleep. He's obviously really annoyed at being the only one up and so makes it his mission to have people join him. 
I'd be chasing him down the bloody street if I could be arsed getting out of bed. Which I can't. Obvs.

Well June was bloody rammed. Not sure how I managed to actually do any personal work at all....I've been juggling loads of stuff including a massive sticker book project for a fab French publisher...but here's what I managed in one easy to understand picture...

sunshine weekend

It's been a bit mental lately but I finally finished a couple of big projects this week. I miss doing my own stuff. Sometimes I fit it in on a night. But recently it's been all proper work and no proper play. But you'll be pleased to know that I'm avoiding real work wherever possible this weekend and concentrating on enjoying this bloody marvellous weather we appear to have been blessed wth. Happy days.

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.
