hello Monday

Weekends are over far too quickly.
Also, we always stay up far too late on a Sunday night. In denial. So getting out of bed on a Monday morning is a bit of a struggle.

the next big thing

If you were planning your next range around any of the banned items mentioned in my previous post and are now feeling a little lost....fear not. Apparently (according to my friend on instagram) the next big thing is gonna be ..... the worm. You heard it here first. Jump on the bandwagon now, before it's too late. 

(This one is a little short because he got chopped in half with a spade by the gardener. It is definitely NOT a penis.)


I'm afraid it's my duty to inform you that the characters contained in this picture are now under a worldwide ban due to total and utter overkill. Find something new. You know it makes sense.

world book day

World Book Day is so much better now that I don't have to start cobbling together an outfit, which somehow matches a book we own, at midnight the night before. 
I always had great intentions. But zero time. And very little enthusiasm from my kids, who mostly wanted to be a Disney Princess or Buzz Lightyear.
Teenagers have few advantages. But this is definitely one of them.
Happy World Book Day 😜

Well, even though kids from all around the world are striking next Friday to bring attention to climate change, it appears that my kids haven't even heard of it 🙄

teenagers 🙄

The eldest teenager likes to get home from her 6th form, open all the cupboards and search through the fridge, then make something to eat. She then spends an hour eating whatever she's made whilst staring at her phone. Then she has a bit of a lie down. Stares at her phone a bit more. Has a snack. And stares at her phone some more. At approximately 10pm she suddenly remembers she was meant to do 3 hours work. She gets her computer out and gets going on some important essay. Due tomorrow. We go to bed and fail to sleep due to the banging about and general wide-awakeness from the next room. At 1am I go mental with her and tell her to go to bloody sleep. The following morning she presses snooze a zillion times before dragging her arse out of bed at the very last minute and applying her makeup in the car. She then repeats the above. Every day.
The youngest teenager is showing signs of following in her footsteps. Without the cooking. Cos he can't be bothered with that.
Oh joy of joys.

february 19

February was much more pleasanterer than January. Especially this last week which has been positively glorious ☀️Woohoo!
Here it is in pattern form.

february catchup

I've had a busy couple of weeks consisting of: 
One half term,
Two day trips to London,
One broken bathroom sink,
A couple of nights out,
One freelancer's get-together,
Loads of work,
And 376 Mum's Taxi bookings.

And in between I drew some pictures just for the laugh...

FrogOnALog, CatOnAMat and TigerOnASkateboard

I do my personal work to keep me sane.
It's my most favouritest hobby.
I do it on a night in front of the telly.
I do it to avoid cleaning.
I sometimes do it to avoid real work. Cos if I'm honest real work is sometimes a little uninspiring.
It is my aim in life to one day just do personal work. And license it and stuff. So that I won't have to do the boring jobs that I sometimes only do for the cash.
Meanwhile I do it for instagram and for my blog. Only these days I sometimes forget my blog.
So here I am catching up.
Like you do on a Sunday night.
When you're trying to avoid the Tesco online order.

love you

Happy valentine's day...or galentine's day...or palentine's day...whatever floats your boat.
I received upgraded exotic flowers this year and we'll be having an M&S dine in tonight. After I've been to my yoga class. Cos I'm all about the romance.

not spring yet

Yesterday it felt like spring. Sunshine and everything.
Today, not so much.
The beauty of living in Yorkshire.
