2014 Week 31 Day 1 – We went for a bike ride today, the girl and I. Well, I say bike ride, but all that happened was that I almost got to the top of a long steep hill and I heard “ppppsssssswwfffftttt”. The road runs through woods and I thought we were passing someone […]
2014 Week 30 Day 7 – Everyone knows how I adore this lil’ lady, and I think it is easy to see why. Of course, I adore her brother too, but I find him trickier at the moment. He needs so much stimulation that I am hoping he will be content at school. For now, […]
2014 Week 30 Day 6 – The day after the early morning before!!! I couldn’t resist driving by my spot and taking a picture again. It just isn’t the same now after those 12 seconds of madness! I have just heard that they may take the remaining three towers down, Didcot B, by controlled explosion […]
2014 Week 30 Day 5 – BOOM. Well that’s what I thought. No such luck. Not for me this far away. But you will see what I mean later. Meanwhile, I tried to sleep before getting up at 2.30am but I couldn’t as I was too tired as usual. It was muggy. Plus all three […]

2014 Week 30 Day 1 – School’s out for summer! Yey. I think? I seemed to come away form pre school with half their toys to clean, but at least Willow found them interesting. And an impulse purchase for the younger kids was actually well received by the eldest child, and we spent an hour together […]
2014 Week 29 Day 7 – Nothing beats a nice cold lolly and then a play with the train set – something the boys never did!
2014 Week 29 Day 6 – This little girl seems to think that our bed is her bed! In fact, she gets quite cross when he sees daddy in it!! Time for a pretend nap
