Can it get anymore hectic..?

So it’s been awhile… Again… Sorry about the length of time between posts the time just flies by when you have a lot going on.

So a quick recap of the past few weeks… My sister is trying to take me to court, I’m behind on the allotment, ran into financial difficulties, cooking competition came up, finished up college, been ill quite a lot, follow up cervical screening, my daughters last booster injections and my sons move up day…. I’m sure there is more but really at this point I can’t think further back at the moment.

College Update (Week 26)

This week only us 4 woman turned up for class on Monday! Me, ‘J’, ‘Va’ and ‘I’ although ‘M’ had come in to tell our Teacher/Chef that he wouldn’t be able to attend due to an interview out of the city… Even though both me and ‘J’ had already informed our Teacher/Chef since ‘M’ told us the night before and that morning.

‘Vo’ turned up with no kit on (surprise surprise) and asked for a favour (the cheek) he wants to finish the course early but hasn’t done any work… He wanted to miss out on the morning session and just come back in the afternoon and do what he missed then… I have no idea why he thinks this would be easier if he had already come in to college in the first place.

Happy Easter Half Term! :)

Bit of a late post considering nearing the end of half term now.

Did I get any housework done? No…

But I did do things which usually I don’t when it’s half term… Not because I don’t usually want to but because of money and weather etc…

This time I had money to do things and despite the weather we went out and did things and you know what? I’m happy.

So before half term I got paid a few days earlier due to the bank holiday and that always messes me up when it comes to my budget! Continue reading “Happy Easter Half Term! :)”

Wow what a week…

We had snow again surprisingly! Not as heavy as it had been a few weeks back but enough to lay and blanket everything.

This week hasn’t gone to planned really… I was hoping to get stuff done at home, complete what I needed to complete in my folder for college and make a start on my allotment. Continue reading “Wow what a week…”

Less often than a blue moon…

… I’m talking about snow! I live in the united kingdom – England – Hampshire – on the south coast…Which means we rarely ever get snow and a blue moon happens more often than snow does!

But we had it surprisingly… I noticed the first flurries happen while in college this past Monday and it was on and off most of the day. Then  on the Tuesday I came out of my flat to go on the school run to find that snow had laid! I didn’t even know it had snowed otherwise I would have gone straight out in it!  Continue reading “Less often than a blue moon…”

Another Manic Monday…

Woke up to my alarms easier enough but body didn’t want to move. Finally got up but couldn’t find the clothes I was looking for. Didn’t have any food in so couldn’t give the kids breakfast or make my daughter a packed lunch for a full day at nursery. Left later than planned so it was clear we weren’t gonna be able to get my son to school for his morning club at 8am since we left at 7:50am – pushchair time!. Continue reading “Another Manic Monday…”
