friday feeling

Woohoo! Up to date with all my work!
The big little one is sleeping over at Auntie Tina's, the little little one is asleep in bed, the other half is at the pub and I'm watching Desperate Housewives on my sky plus with a nice cold ice cold beer. Happy weekend!

All work and no play is making me a little bit tired and a little bit grumpy!
Just finished working... off to bed!

Haven't stopped all day, just when I think I'm nearly done something else crops up! Anyway my little monkeys are playing out on their bikes giving me just enough time to put this on before I go to girls night...taking my work with me....

time for bed

Why does our nine year old feel the need to stay awake so late? She is currently SINGING at the top of her voice in bed...I wouldn't mind if she slept in on a morning...

sun at last

Picnic in the park two days in a row!! Wowee! And we even put the car roof down today, maybe the little people will stop nagging me now!
ps, saw the new dog...Poppy the puppy....soooo cute!

A new family member

My sister, who has never been a big fan of dogs (and whose daughter has always been slightly terrified of them), is getting a dog!!!
My sister's husband and the terrified daughter are currently driving from Yorkshire to Norfolk to pick it up.
We will get to meet the new dog tomorrow....see how that one goes!!

Today was a bank holiday, we went to Whitby for the day...we walked up to the abbey, went on the beach, spent lots of money in the toy shop, had fish and chips by the sea and saw lots of seagulls!
