been busy...

In the last couple of weeks I have:
Done more work than I thought was physically possible.
Waited hand and foot on the other half following his knee replacement op.
Been the family's only taxi service due to the above.
Sat through a 3 hour hair appointment I really didn't have time for.
Run away from home with my computer in order to avoid knee replacement visitors disrupting my work flow.
Had our annual photo booth experience in order to come up with the Mother's Day goods.
Cancelled yoga due to excessive work demands.
Attended the somewhat dull Scout presentation night.
And taken the big one miles away for her sixth form college interview.

I have tried my very best not to moan about any of it because this week I also attended the saddest funeral I've ever been to and I'm counting my blessings that my life is a walk in the park compared to that of my lovely friend.

mini break

The trouble with a mini break is that it's just too MINI. Like we did loads of bike riding and tree trekking and swimming and eating and drinking and just general sitting about on arses. And the kiddos played a spot of badminton. And the other half taught them how to play pool. But we didn't really have time to do enough of it. What we really needed was a maxi break. Like two weeks. Or three. At least.

half term jaunt

Woohoo! We're going on a half term mini break to Center Parcs today. I booked it months ago when I remembered how crap winter is. Clever me 😌

weekend ups and downs

We went to see The Pet Shop Boys last night. God they were dull. Not my cup of tea at all. The other half thought they were ok though so we had to stay till the end. 😴

We legged it back to join our mates in the pub afterwards though. And we got a curry delivered as we arrived home. At 1 o'clock. In the morning. So all was not lost. Apart from a few hours sleep. But did I mention it's half term? Oh joy of joys, we have all week to catch up.

Happy Valentine's Day peeps. Hope all your love dreams came true today.
The other half is taking me on a hot date to the cinema to see that classic love story Trainspotting2. Old romantic!

grey skies and crap weather

Still February.
Still winter.
Still bloody grey and cold.
Still taking the vitamin D. With naff all effect.


Apparently the sky is still blue beyond the clouds. But I wouldn't know about that because the sodding clouds never leave Yorkshire.

skeggy by the sea

I'm just about recovered from our weekend away. We went to Butlins Skegness on an 80's weekender to help celebrate someone's birthday.
For anyone not familiar with this great bastion of 1950's holiday culture, Butlins is not exactly known as a place to go for a luxury 5* exclusive break these days. Indeed I was informed shortly before we went that we had to provide our own towels! And the other half told me it was recently voted "9th worst holiday in the UK" so I can't say I was particularly looking forward to it.
But, you know what? We had a bloody ace weekend! Probably the 9th best weekend EVER! Helped along of course by the copious amounts of alcohol we consumed. And the rather amusing company. And the fancy dress. EVERYONE got dressed up on Saturday night. (We were Buck's Fizz, google them if you're too young to remember) I didn't stop laughing all weekend. Or drinking. Fanbloodytastic!

January 17

Well January lasted LikeForEVER didn't it?
On to February now, the month of 2 mini breaks, half term, valentines and sugar free-ness. For some. Not me. Obvs. It would be worse than January if I had to ditch the Green & Blacks.

This was the longest month ever 👇🏼...
