cardi time

Whenever I go shopping lately all I seem to buy is another new cardi. I've bought 3 in the last couple of weeks! I don't mean to. I just get to the shops and don't really fancy anything else.
I think I'm at a problem age. Too old for young people clothes. Too young for old people clothes. So I just buy a cardi. 
Oh and today I bought some neon yellow converse. The kids are mortified. Clearly they think I'm too old for neon yellow and should just stick with the cardies...

half term happiness

I'm loving half term cos I HATE waking up early. Especially when it's dark. And cold. So this week the alarm is turned OFF. And my lovely kids are sleeping late. 
Happy days :)

spread the love?

Valentines Day actually gets on my nerves. Its obvs a money making scam, taking advantage of the ones with another half and totally pissing off the ones without.
But hey. It's the only day of the year that I get flowers. So I'm not moaning.

that Friday feeling

In the olden days I used to go out with my mates on a Friday night. The other half used to go out with his mates. We'd meet up and come home together. All very lovely.
Then we had kid number 1. 
So we got a babysitter and carried on as normal.
Till we had kiddo number 2. And the babysitter had a kid of her own. She didn't feel the need to look after our kids any more. So I stayed in. 
And the other half carried on as normal.
I was proper pee'd off for a while but then I realised that staying in on a Friday night is actually ok. 
I'm in control of the tv remote. I have a few drinks. Nice food. I can do what I please. And I don't feel the need to work so much. It's my chill out night.
All very lovely. 
If anyone invites me out now I give them the NoBabysitter excuse. Who can be arsed going out on a Friday night?!

So imagine my utter dismay at the news that after half term the little one is ready to move up from Cubs to Scouts. 
That would be Scouts that is OnAFridayNight!! Till 9pm! 3 miles away! 
Noooo!! :(
Seriously! Friday night?! Whose idea was that?!
I'm hoping he hates it.
