That's June done and dusted. Another year whizzing by superfast.

It's suddenly totally tropical in Yorkshire. Woohoo. I might even have to take a layer off!
[It's completely not true that all Brits ever talk about is the weather. I hardly ever mention it myself.]

The eldest finished her last exam on Monday. Happyflippinglulliah! So we zipped straight off to Centerparcs and rode bikes through the forest all week.
I've now got about 10 weeks worth of work to do in the next 5 weeks before we jet off on our jollies.
Bye then.

the big shop

Our Tesco online delivery comes between 9 and 10am on a Monday. To secure this apparently popular slot I have to place my order sometime soonish the week before. So I go online, chuck a few random items in the basket and check out. Then every Sunday night, after moaning about it for 3 hours, I go back online to update the order to something we actually need.
Only this Sunday I moaned for 3 hours, went online, spent forever updating the order....then forgot to checkout.
So the delivery arrived on Monday morning and it was basically a bottle of Jack Daniels, some prawns and 12 packets of crisps. 
My sister said that this was the equivalent of spending an hour walking round Morissons filling up your trolley, then leaving it in the bread aisle. She's not wrong.
So I logged back in and secured ANOTHER slot for Tuesday morning. Apparently Tuesday mornings aren't as popular as Mondays. I chucked a load of cleaning products and toothpaste and toilet paper into the basket and checked out. I intended to go back and add actual food before the 11.46pm deadline.
Only I forgot. 
The delivery arrived on Tuesday morning and it was basically dishwasher tabs, tin foil and bog roll.
Still no food.
I had to physically show up in person at an actual supermarket to buy our dinner. 
We've run out again now cos I hate supermarket shopping.
But at least we have the Jack Daniels.

rain rain rain

You've gotta be suspicious when the weather men say it's gonna be a "flaming June"
They're usually flaming lying.
This June is no exception.
It hasn't stopped chucking it down all month.
And don't tell me it's good for the garden. I don't want it to be good for the sodding garden. It's overgrown and like a bloody jungle as it is.
Just send some sunshine please.
And warmth.
It would be nice to stop wearing 15 layers of winter clothes.

forgot to post

A couple of pics that I stuck on the old insta but forgot to put on here....cos we all love seeing the same old shit on every media platform 😆

exam hell

We're a household in the middle of exam hell at the mo. The eldest is in the middle of her A levels. She is somewhat erratic with the revision and alternates between staring at her phone for hours on end and writing pages and pages of elaborate notes. 
Her bedroom is such a tip that she has now decamped to the dining table. It's completely covered in revision crap and we can no longer eat there.
She had a biology exam this morning so she stayed up all night to revise.
She is driving me mad.
Only 3 exams to go now though. In 11 days it will all be over.
Can't. Bloody. Wait.
