sunny sunday

The sun shone a bit today so we went to Harewood House. Very lovely as usual :-)
I am, however, in denial about the amount of work I've got to do compared to the amount of time available to do it in the school hols....suppose I should be doing something now really but I'm still in holiday mode...

back to normal...

Normal Saturday for us today....park with my sis and the kids...
Yes you would think we'd seen enough of each other this week but as we spent the first 19 years of our lives glued together a week and a bit was no problem.
We did used to take the dog with us on a Saturday but we seem to have packed that in due to it being a complete nutter who runs too fast.

I'm back!!

Oh what a fab holiday! We mostly sat on our buttocks and did not much...just breaking off on occasion to serve the constant demands of 5 children who liked to be waited on hand and foot....a week was not long enough....

final countdown

Ok I can hold my excitement and giddiness no's only 7 sleeps to our hols!!!
Woohoo! We have been counting down since we booked it 31 weeks ago!

Two years ago me and my sis took our 5 kids to Norfolk for the weekend in a caravan.
Last year we took them to Filey for the weekend another caravan.
This year we have upgraded! A week in a villa in Lanzarote!
We are leaving the big kids (men) at home and we're off to find some sunshine and a pool and some wine and some smiles and I can't wait :-)

donuts for tea

Krispy Kreme opened nearby last week and there has been a queue there ever since. Cars are backed up for miles waiting to go through the drive-thru, the roads are gridlocked! Everyone and their mother has a status update on facebook about how many they've eaten!
So of course me and the kids just had to check it out....

british summers....

...the washing is still wet.

i'd love to?!

As if I didn't have enough work to do I'm now doing freebies left, right and bloody centre!
At the moment I have the following urgent items on my list:

  • fundraising ball ticket
  • poster to advertise above fundraising ball
  • friend's new company logo
  • charity ticket
  • poster to advertise above charity event

AND as if that wasn't enough, Mrs Kent from the office at school has passed on the good word to her friend Audrey at church and now I've got a fancy dress flyer and poster to do for them!!
When people ask me I always smile and politely say, "ooh yes, that'll be fine, no I don't mind at all"
And when I say it I do actually mean it.
The problem comes when I have to find the time to actually do the damned things!

Ok, I can hear you...I know I should be getting on with it instead of getting all moany on here and faffing about with unrelated pics of talking dogs...I'm going, ok!

sunny weekend

The world is a much better place when the sun shines :-)
Would be even better if the PMT would sod off!
