Weekly Update – 13/03/2017

It is time again for my weekly update, another week has been and gone.  Is it just me, or are these weeks going far too quickly. As always I will start with C, she has been suffering a bit with all the stress that has been going on lately (will explain a bit more below).  We had our home visit from her tutor and her boss last Tuesday, to see about home tutoring for the time being, until she is well enough to try at school again.  It went really…

February Roundup

February Roundup

Well we are now into March, how quickly did February go, as I was away for the weekend I am doing my monthly update and weekly update in one go. As always I will start with C, she has had a rough month with her illness, she has been in a lot of pain and apart from our trip to the hospital the other week, she has been bed bound, and very ill.  Her hospital appointment went well although they have diagnosed her as having severe CFS rather than just…

Weekly Update – 18/02/2017

Another week has gone by, and it has been half term here (not that it affects us much at the moment), so it is time for my weekly update.  It has been quite a week, so will apologise now if it is long. I will start off with C, she had a very bad week last week, and this week her legs and pain have been no better, and I have had times when she has tried to get up without me, and ended up on the floor and heard…

The Reality Of Living With A Teen

The Reality Of Living With A Teen

We all know I have two teens living in my house, my Daughter C who is 13 and my stepson Shaun who is 18, so I thought I would do a little post about the reality of living with a teen in the house. We all think that toddlers are the hardest age, let me tell you that is not the case, teens are the hardest age so far and I am going to give you a few reasons why. I am not going to talk about C, as due…

My Week – Sorry A Bit Late

My Week – Sorry A Bit Late

I know I am very late with my weekly post, where has this week gone and how can it be Wednesday already. Last week, was very mixed, it was one of my busiest and nicest weeks, together with one of my worst weeks ever.  I am not going to dwell on why it was one of my worst weeks, but lets just say, I really learnt a lot about people who I thought cared and realised who my friends are/were. It was a busy week because I had 3 coffee…

Today!

Today!

This photo came up on my timehop today, it was taken 3 years ago, you have all seen my Daughter and my mad dog Max many times before, but this photo shows a whole new story. As you can see they adore each other, I would not say they are inseperable, as that would be a lie, because if there is food around, or the chance of food Max will be there, he is very fickle in that way. As you will also know, my Daughter has not been well…

Goodbye January – Hello February

Goodbye January – Hello February

January has been and gone and we are now into the second month of the year.  I for one am glad to say goodbye to January, it really has been a rotten month for us. As you will probably know we run our own photography business (please do not think my photos are the standard you get as I take them on my phone), unfortunately due to the horrendous weather we have been having our studio got damaged, resulting in a lot of damage and a new roof having to…

The Nearly 12 year old

The Nearly 12 year old

I am honestly dreading the teenage years, if the pre-teen years are anything to go by. She left Primary school in July, yes they had all outgrown primary school, but they were still little.  She started secondary school in September, and suddenly looked so grown up.  A few weeks down the line and she has changed and grown up so much. And the attitude and her confidence has changed so much as well. A little insight into my week so far, and yes I know it is only Wednesday. Monday,…

I am a horrible Mum today

I am a horrible Mum today

I need to change my title from Stressed Mum to Mean Mum or Horrible Mum. We are pretty laid back parents with our Daughter, she is good and does not (well yet anyway), cause us too many problems. We are however strict where homework etc comes in. Everyday, it is the same conversations about homework, Have you got any? When does it need to be in by? What have you got to do? We have even brought her a white board and put it up, and I marked it Monday…

My Week – 19/09/15

My Week – 19/09/15

After all the stress of last week, we were hoping on a much easier week this week.  My Dad is getting stronger by the day which is great, he does just need to realise he can’t do everything he wants to at the minute. My daughter has really shown how much she is growing up and changed, since starting secondary school, as you would have seen from my previous post. This week has been very upsetting and also very excited, a lot of mixed emotions going on. Last Saturday, my…
