My Week – 21/11/15

Oh my goodness, how cold has it suddenly become, we have been quite lucky really as not been too bad, yes a bit chilly, but today it is freezing and although it did not settle, we even had a bit of snow earlier. This week has been a mix of emotions, firstly with following along with everyone else, what has been happening in Paris since the awful events of last Friday.  I still find it hard to believe only a few months ago we visited their as a family for…

My Week 14/11/15

This week has been a bit of a rollercoaster with emotions flying high (mainly my daughters) and we have had a few battles to contend with. All in all it has been a pretty good week but oh my  has she given me a few moments. Monday we had the start of what I think could be a mini series of Mum v Daughter moments, the first was about dinner, if you missed it you can see what happened here. All week she has been excited as she is having…

Happy Friday

Happy Friday

Well you would think so, being the end of the week and no alarms or getting up early for 2 days. Oh no Little Miss Stroppy is in town again this morning.  I am not a morning person, I am the first one to admit that, but I am civil and I do answer if people talk to me. This morning, Little Miss Stroppy aka my Daughter, was in a right mood, no idea why, she has lessons she likes today, it is Friday and tomorrow she has her friends…

Kids!!!

Kids!!!

My Daughter gets the bus home from school on her own now, which is lovely for me as no more going out in the horrible cold weather. This afternoon I am sitting here working and my phone bings with a text from my Daughter as school had finished, so I think it is going to be can so and so come around or can I go here. No, it says she has lost her pencil case and more importantly it had her 2 expensive drawing outliner pens she uses for…

Why do kids do it?

Why do kids do it?

It does not matter how young or how old your child is, they all seem to have this amazing ability to find anything and everything to talk about at bedtime.  It just seems to come from nowhere. My daughter can come home from school and the only things she will happily say is hi, I am hungry, what’s for dinner?, can I have?. I ask her about her day and I get it was ok, or the more annoying I don’t know.  That one drives me up the wall, I…

Must be something in the air

Must be something in the air

I know halloween is approaching and strange things happen, but there is definitely something strange going on in our house. Something is not right, and it feels very very strange. Something has happened to my daughter, do I worry? is it the time of year? has someone swapped her? This past week, she has been a joy to be around, don’t get me wrong I love her to bits, but she has been lovely, no strops, no tempers, just funny and chatty. She gets up in the morning with no…

My Week – 10/10/15

This week has been very busy, but a lot less emotional than the previous few weeks thankfully. Last Sunday, my daughter had her first trip out shopping into town on her own with a friend.  I dropped her at her friends house and then off they went.  They had  a great time, she spent all her money but brought herself a new sketch pad and some stupidly priced pens but this is her life, she loves drawing and draws some amazing manga style pictures, and then pens are special ones…
