Thank you Felix,Pi and Jay for making the house look so nice downstairs. I didn’t have to worry this morning when I had my meeting that it might be messy. Mornings are so hectic, so to not have cleaning to worry about made my morning much easier. You are all stars. Annie -mo had her year check up. She weighs… Read more →
Happy Mother’s day all you lovely mamas out there. I hope you have an amazing day filled with love and smiles and snuggles from those who you so freely give your all to xx
Sophie brought home two certificates so she got to choose both main meal and desert this evening. After being gently steered away from home made sushi she eventually settled on homemade pizza and banoffee pie. Everyone in the house has their own pizza style. Felix has no cheese, Jay makes his stuffed crust. Pi tries to emulate Jay and I… Read more →
I borrowed an energy meter from the library. It shows how much electricity is currently being used and what level energy consumption reached the previous morning, evening and afternoon. At first I checked it all the time reminding everyone to switch everything off and chastising those who left their xbox on all the time. I got a little blase after… Read more →
Jay’s school was on strike today but only for certain years, which ment he didn’t have to go in, whilst much to his glee, Felix did. I feel teaching should be a highly paid and highly qualified job. They are educating the future of our country and our world and should be paid and treated accordingly. Teachers put in long… Read more →
Last Tuesday Annie and I flew into Dublin to visit Annie’s Irish Grandad. Dad always makes us feel so welcome and his home is a home away from home for all the family. The sun shone and and Annie and I spent the warm days catching up with Dad and making the most of some quality father daughter time. Annie… Read more →
This morning we had to get up at 5am in order to get to the airport in time to catch our flight. That, coupled with Annie-Mo’s increasingly frequent night wakenings, have made for a very tired me. Arriving back in the UK to a sunshiney day and a very excited Elsie was lovely. She had been keeping down the crocodile… Read more →
Annie -Mo is just about crawling. She is shuffling around on her hands and knees quickly gaining speed and confidence. No more popping Annie down in one spot and her staying there contented. The world is hers to explore, every last nook and cranny. I have had to launch a few rescue missions when the little lady has got herself… Read more →
Dad compared my blog to “Diary of a nobody”. I don’t know whether to take his comment as a compliment or an insult. I shall have to reread the book before I make up my mind.
Currently on Facebook there is a trend for ladies posting selfies (pictures of themselves) without any makeup on. The aim is to bare yourself and then donate to Cancer research (www.cruk.org). Over 1 million has already been donated in the past 24 hours. Breast cancer research UK were very surprised at the sudden rise in donations especially as they didn’t… Read more →
I am not a very big fan of tv. This is just as well because normally I don’t get much say in what’s on telly. If someone really wants to watch a certain program, in general, I will happily go along with it. There are a few criteria however I will put my foot down about, but in general, “Pokemon,”… Read more →
Today Annie and I got the chance to sit for a while in the sun and warm our toes. Annie loves being outside and prefers to be without shoes and socks so it was good we were able to take advantage of the fine weather.
There was a massive fire in Harrogate town centre today . I first heard about it from Matt when he called to say he was coming home for lunch, and Prezzo, the pizza restaurant, was on fire. Working in an office at the top of the centre’s skyscraper, Matt had a bird’s eye view of action. A slight smell of… Read more →
Wow a year has passed so quickly. We all love having Annie-Mo in our family. She is such a happy, smiley poppet. Wishing her a wonderful birthday and year from Mama, Dada,Felix, Jaygo, Sophie-Pi, Elsie, Jasper the cat, Snowy, Henry, Molly, Alfie, Charlie, Misty, Jasper fish and the snails.
Matt made the most delicious dinner tonight, Coq au vin. We drank French wine and enjoyed the company of our lovely French friend and her family. C’est tres Brian ( my predictive text changed bien to Brian which I thought I would keep as it made me giggle. However, it was not as funny as Jay thinking our very French… Read more →
