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..

The Good:

Big congrats to my 2nd eldest son who got 3A’s in his A levels results. Business chemistry and biology!!

Also got offered a place at the uni he wanted!!

Another one to soon fly the nest…

The Random:

After 3 weeks of the children being off school and behond. Since having a puppy. I have had a pile of iron way up to the ceiling . Never ger a minute!!Yeaterday I made time. I can finally see the bottom of the ironing basket.

It is grey!! Was celebrating with a cookie.

The fun:

Since having a puppy I have been buying lots of smell candles to make the rooms smell fresher. Can not wait to try my latests one!!

    Well done to your son!! I love summer as there's no need for work clothes and therefore no ironing, only 2 more weeks though!
