Monthly Archives: March 2013



Monday : Finally finishing the cushion cover that I was asked to do way back in December!
Tuesday : Story time with Great Uncle J
Wednesday : Finally some sunshine. So much so that, after dropping B off at Beavers, J was able to be on his bike for a good quarter of an hour!
Thursday : totally forgot, again, to take a picture today. Oops
Friday : We visited a friend today at her croft. A lovely chance for the children to get some hands on fun with a few farmyard animals.
Saturday : Saturday was a very busy day for us. The morning was spent at a Highland Dancing Festival, though we weren’t allowed to take any pictures. J wasn’t especially impressed 😉
The afternoon was spent at Messy Church then onto a birthday party afterwards.
It was a Pirate and Princess party.
I brought my best har har pirate and Spanish princess!

Mummy J, do you need a pee?
J No. It’s just that my willy is getting cold.

Mummy So you need to hold it ? 😉
J Yes.



Monday : Playing at throwing himself onto the couch.
Tuesday : friends round to play.
I love a busy, happy house!
Wednesday : Js Nursery is holding a Smiley Face Cafe as a fundraiser and to help the children learn about different jobs. The nursery leader fairly had her work cut out to make all the cakes and sandwiches!
Thursdays: totally forgot to take a picture on Thursday oops.
Friday : J is getting on so much better with his little cousin now.
Saturday : Saturday is a two parter this week because it was a busy day.
Afternoon fun at an Easter Bunny Bop! They children were delighted to meet the Easter Bunny!!
Evening entertainment was watching Grandad as part of a classical orchestra.
Neither of the children were sure if they wanted to go, neither was I, it was quite late at night, but both came away saying that it had been Great!!
So proud of them both, for their wonderful behaviour and then showing such enthusiasm when asked if they had enjoyed it!


Scary happenings in my house!


I am not well today 😦
So I took myself to bed for an hour:

I wake up with a start but feel so groggy I can barely move!
I try to lift my eye mask to check the time but everything feels so heavy!
I manage to move myself a little to see the clock but can’t make it out, so I lunge for my phone and manage to read it, 1152
Flopping back to the bed I think, och I still have time yet.

I hear someone in the toilet.
Who the heck is it!?
I am alone in the house, J is a Nursery until 1130.
I know I have a guy coming in to give me a quote but he wouldn’t let himself in, would he?
Maybe he would, this is such a trusting community…….
No, that’s not a man, that’s a little boy, must be J.
But hang on, how did he get home?
Oh god, it’s 1152 that means I have missed pick up!!
Someone must have popped him in, seeing that I wasn’t there.
I know I put on Facebook that I wasn’t well.
Oh, that was nice of them.
But surely that is really bad of me, and why didn’t anyone call? Or shout to say that he was home?
Oh Lordy do you think they saw me sleeping and just left J?
He is in the room now, I can hear his little voice whispering, maybe he will give me a little cuddle, that would be nice.
I should take this eye mask off to say hi, reassure him I am ok. Find out how he got home.
But I just can’t seem to move!
Oh dear this is getting worrying now. J is home and I am so so heavily asleep I just can’t move, not even to move this eye mask. I am trying but my arms are so so heavy I just can’t.
He is leaving the room now, “Don’t go sweety. Stay.
How did you get home, are you ok?”
But no words come out!
Oh! I just can’t do anything! I feel as if a huge weight is on me and my mind is so sluggish.
I fall asleep fretfully, awakening shortly after, I check the time 1054

OMG! It was a dream!
Thank God for that!

It was so incredibly real though!
So so scary.
I want to go and get my J straight away to make sure he is ok!




Monday : Gotta love it when the sun is shining and you get a sausage roll treat for lunch.
Tuesday‘s are after school club time, except J goes at 1130 until 1. Well, that’s how long it supposed to be but we always end up staying longer because he asks for a extra story, I yap and then, today we decided to go to the outside play area with them. We didn’t get home until 2!
Wednesday : Woke up to beautiful weather today!! Where did this lot come from?
Beautiful though isn’t it!
Thursday : Third and best attempt at a starburst braid today. Loving it!
Friday : We have a visitor tonight, Bs best friend L. Quick trip to the shops.
Looks like fun, doesn’t it?
It was bleeding stressful having three children careering about with their baskets. Good fun though.
Saturday : A treat day today.
Cinema with a friend this morning, Tinkerbell and the Secret of the Wings.
Then lunch at the hotel that puts up a bouncy castle one Saturday.
Music class, then treat dinner, tattie waffles, beans, cheese and eggs.
Sounds bleauch, but it was bloomin lovely!
