Off To Uni : The Wednesday Blog Hop..


In a few weeks my 2nd son will leave home and go off to uni.

Does it get any easier when the 2nd one goes, I ask myself!?!

I was so upset when my first son went to uni 2 years ago, I even wrote a piece in the Nottingham Post

Last Thursdays he got his exam results.

He did great.

3A's in business chemistry and biology.

Also got offered a place at the uni he wanted on the same day. What a day. 

Another one to soon fly the nest. I am just hoping I am not so upset I will be crying in the street again, like I did when my eldest went!?!

Bet I will though..

The Good. The Random. The Fun...


The weeks are just flying by here. Summer nights are now getting darker earlier and the mornings up with the puppy are getting cooler. There is a Autumn feel in the air...

3 Weeks of school holidays left though... yeah..

Going On An Adventure...


We were all excited for the start of the Summer Holidays. 

Nice sunny skies, for six action packed weeks..

Not!! 

In fact more dull and rainy days than sunshine this week.

No worries though, cloudy days can be fun too. All we need is an idea. Some of our most memorable days of the holiday so far, have been when we woke up with seemingly nothing to do. 

Tuesday being a perfect example. We decided to take a trip to Grandmas house that morning, after nice big breakfast.

Let's Go To The Beach...


Let's Go To The Beach...
I can't believe it was a week ago we were having lots of fun at the beach. This weeks has flown by.

Last Thursday went to stay over at my mum and dads caravan for a few nights and took Mollie the Border Collie with us.

This is a nice quiet beach that we found some where between Mablethorpe and Skegness. A beach that dogs are allowed onto.

Shame I could not let her off the lead though.

I would have done as she is ok around other people children and dogs it is just the car park was nearby.

She goes mad when she sees the cars, trying to get to them to round them up with her sheep dog instance!

Anyone For Tennis?


On a stroll through a nearby park a few weeks ago. My youngest two and me saw some tennis courts.  It took me back more years than I care to remember. I loved playing tennis as a kid, however like many things over the years I seemed to have forgotten all about it.

Our Christmas Day..

Hoping you all have had a lovely Christmas day? We have been having a great time. Too much food, not much sleep, lots excitement and quality family time together. Even snow on Boxing day made it just that bit extra special!!

So many fun things have happen over the last few days which really do feel like weeks. Husband and children all home with time off work, school and university. Family visits, baking party cakes, Christmas day and opening presents. Christmas dinner, parents visiting for tea, more food, tasty cakes and drinks. Boxing day out for a party lunch at my mum and dads. More amazing food and cakes and home before the snow arrived. Snow came. Straight out at night to play in the snow in-case it disappeared by morning. More party food. Out to the park in the snow. Walking 3 miles to the shops for a spot of sale shopping. More snowy walks. 2 and a half miles walk around the woods to make the most of the snow. Sit down, heat on, feet up, nice cup of tea, more chocolate!!...

This is my catch up! What have you all been up to?

Sharing our Christmas eve through to Christmas day pictures today...


A present for Santa and Rudolph...



Now I really do need to get back to the gym, the weight is starting to creep on!! but it is still so cold, snowy and icy outside when it is lovely and warm inside..

Linking up with Jamie over at ~

Flashback Friday : Putting Up The Christmas Tree 2013...

My youngest two are all excited for the weekend when we can go into the garage to sort out the Christmas decorations. On Monday I have been told by them, we will be putting tree up. 

I was thinking maybe we will wait a while this year, however after a trip to the shops today I had a change of heart., Seeing all the shops decorated, the Christmas music playing and every other shop seemingly selling Christmas jumpers I was finally getting into the Christmas season. I just wish my bank balance was!!

So once school is done Friday we will get the kids a new jumper, set up the advent calenders, then wait until Monday morning to trim up.

A few pictures of last year.
