The ups and downs of living with a teen

My Week

The signs I have a pre-teen have really shown this week, with the strops and the sulks, mixed together with a battle of wills between myself and my daughter. My daughter has gone on holiday today for a week with my parents, and we promised that she could have her bedroom redecorated, but her Dad put in […]

A day out today

Today, I had a very rare day out with my daughter, just the two of us, well I say just the two of us, but we met up with her friend and her mum, for a trip to the cinema. Now I do try to avoid these places like the plague, and do feel mean […]

What a week

This week was slightly different to last week, where we had a very spontaneous trip to Paris, which we thoroughly enjoyed. This week was all about one of my most hated trips out, the school uniform shopping. I like every other woman loves shopping, but I find no enjoyment out of buying school uniform, apparently, […]

Pets with Children

I know some people love pets and others can not stand the mess and ties that come with owning a pet.  But to me they become part of the family, I also think that they teach children so many valuable life experiences too. Yes, you can not just go out for the day and come […]

Phew! What a week

Sorry I have been a bit quiet this week on my blog, but this week has been very busy and very enjoyable with some lovely quality family time. We started off on Monday very quiet as my daughter was at a sleepover and did not come home until Tuesday afternoon, as had planned to do […]

My daughter, had her last School Summer Fair, last sports day, as a Primary School Student, had her leavers assembly which was so emotional, watching her whole class perform together in their class assembly for the very last time, seeing how […]

I have been tagged into the Blogger Interview by Helen at Beautiful Things, I was very happy to accept the invitation to take part in the interview, as I do love the tagging posts, as it ask questions so that you can get to know more about me, and also I get to learn about […]

Liebster Award

I have been nominated for the Liebster Award, by the lovely Tori at the Adultier Adult, who is one of my favourite blog reads. When I saw that I had been nominated for an award I was over the moon, as I have only been blogging for a short time, so had never heard of […]

Lost -Social Life

  Lost – Social Life if found please return. Do you remember those days before you had your children? When the weekends meant nice long lie ins, then out shopping on a Saturday aternoon browsing the shops for that latest dress or pair of shoes you just had to have for that night, having lunch […]

My Week

This week has been a lot calmer than last week, thankfully.  It has been emotional though, as I watched my daughter say goodbye to her friends and school who she has been with for the past 7 years, when she started as a little 4 year old. I have watched her grow up from a […]
