still alive!

I'm alive.

I've just been really busy. Stupid busy.

Also it's a bit pointless putting the same stuff on here AND instagram. 

And insta just seems easier.

But I feel a bit sad just abandoning this little blog. I've been moaning away on here since March 2010. That's over 11 years worth of moans!

Maybe I'll post something different from time to time on here. Or when I'm not as busy maybe I'll just double post again.


Anyways. For now I'm here to say that the lovely Emma Isaacs persuaded me to appear on her fabulous Creative Ways podcast. You can listen to it here if you want to listen to me ramble on a bit....

out out

I went out on Saturday. Out out! Literally. As in outside. In a beer garden. It was bloody freezing. But so nice to be out with mi mates again.

normal life continues...

Normal life continued today when I got rid of the ginger roots. 
Next stop: trainer shopping with Alf tonight.
It's the week of dreams!

big day out

We had a rather splendid day out yesterday. We took the Jodester back up to Newcastle. (She needed to get back for her household's very first night out in an entire year.)

We hired e-scooters and zipped into Toon where we shopped in actual real life open shops and had takeout food on a park bench in the sunshine.

What a day to be alive!

april snow showers

Last week the temperature got up to 20 degrees.

This week it's been snowing.

What's going on 🀷🏼‍♀️



online fashion disasters

This is Kitty. Kitty can't wait for the shops to open again tomorrow. She won't have to guess if an outfit's a good idea anymore. She can actually see it in real life. And wear it straight away if she wants to. Happy days.



bank holiday thursday

I worked on Monday and we had bank holiday Thursday instead. We went on a little family jaunt to the seaside. It was blowing a gale and bloody freezing. But soooooo nice to go somewhere out of a 5 mile radius. And we had fish and chips. Outside obvs.

lockdown easing is GO

Bozza announced this week that Neil can finally go back to work next Monday. Thank god for that! He has literally only worked one day this year!

I love him to bits. But he needs to bugger off out of the house all day now. Leaving me to work in peace and general tidyness.

wild Monday

Go wild, it's Monday.

Bank holiday Monday actually.

Not here though. I worked instead. Everywhere is always heaving on a bank holiday so I'm gonna have Thursday or Friday off instead and we're going on a family outing. Cos that's sort of allowed now.

Eat the chocolate.

spring walk

We went for a fabuloso walk today with my sis and our friend Joanne. And assorted kids. We most definitely numbered more than the designated rule of six allowed. But strictly speaking Joanne is in my sister's bubble. All the kids are doing twice weekly covid tests. And I'm completely and utterly over it now.

The sun came out. We went to the ice cream parlour. It felt all Springy. And we loved it.

easter

Easter weekend.

The same as every other lockdown weekend.

But with more chocolate.

lockdown easing...3rd time lucky?

I went out last night. Out out! 

Literally. 

As in OUTSIDE!

We're allowed to meet up to six people in an outdoor setting this week. So Girls Night is back and we all went to sit in Alison's garden. It was great. And also a bit weird to be actually doing stuff again.

Only a couple of weeks till more normalness occurs. I'm not really ready to be manic busy again though. I think I've become institutionalised.

This is what's been occurring on insta πŸ‘‡πŸΌπŸ‘‡πŸΌπŸ‘‡πŸΌ

falling asleep

FINALLY the youngest went back to college today.

I had to get up at 7am to drag him out of bed.

I feel like it's bedtime already now.

It's 2.30pm.

I hate getting up early.

cold again

This is Tina Mouse.

She's wondering if it's warm enough to go on today's walk without a coat.

It isn't.
