Family fights

Not even a fight really. Just a difference of opinion. But I feel dreadful and have been crying on and off all day :( I probably was more emotional because I am so tired but I stand by my views. I just wish that when it came to decisions about MY children my wishes would be respected. Seriously is it too much to ask?

For the record today's drama was because I suggested a cd player would be a better present for my 4 year old than a portable DVD player. I really don't see the controversy .

Woes me

Sinuses playing up again. Suddenly feel bluesy. Darn hormones! Auntie flo must be preparing for a visit. There are lots and lots of things I love about being a woman. Raging hormones are not one of them!
On a lighter note... Craft wise I am currently working on a hat for a friend and a baby blanket. Slow progress as facebook is too distracting! Also starting to get more jewellery orders which is faberooney!

Fingers crossed all I need is a good nights sleep to cheer me up! And toes crossed that I get one !! :)

The waiting game

I've never really been very good at waiting. I always need to know NOW! Yet right now I find myself waiting for a lot of things. Important confirmation of something I'm sure to be true. News of a neighbours new arrival. The result of a court case. News that a friends babys life saving op has been scheduled. And the ever important payday of course . They tell me patience is a virtue.... well it's a virtue I don't possess! I just can't wait!!!!!!

Declutter declutter declutter

Freegle is my friend! I am by nature a hoarder. You never know when you might need it is my mantra. But the clutter is taking over my home! I've mentioned before that I am following fly lady and it honestly has changed my life! Sounds dramatic doesn't it but it truly has! So now I am letting go of the clutter ! I am listing a box of items for car booting on freecycle THEN grabbing a box and filling it before the freecycler arrives!! Awesome stuff! Gotta fill the box to make it worth there while and I am not tempted to take things back out of the box! Loving it!!

Games night

Great fun!! My husband and I have been playing board games this week. Scrabble and battleships. Turns out I am rubbish at both but it's still fun! And it means we spend an evening together NOT sat in silence watching the tv!! You've got to love that!

Every one is sleeping

And what am I doing? Browsing blogs, flicking through facebook and waiting for strangers to take there turn at scrabble! Why oh why do I insist on being awake til the early hours and then complaining I am tired all day?

Proud mummy alert!

Today my little girl walked all the way into town with me. It took us an hour but she was so good never moaning , no accidents and held my hand when I asked her to. My little man is also being a star. Been out of nappies since Thursday and today we only had one accident and he asked me to go to the loo when we were out! I couldn't be prouder of them both , no longer babies but always my babes . Xxx

Are you a planner?

I like to plan. I make grand plans and have great ideas . Very few of these plans actually make it past the planning stage to be honest but it's all good fun. When it comes to making decision I tend to be implusive! I want it now and I do not appreciate being made to wait. But having made a decision recently I have been forced to wait as the next step is something I cannot do alone. The doubt is creeping in and my sensible brain is making itself heard. My heart says just do it. My brain says .. are you off your head!!!! Lol!! Normally before my brain gets a chance to speak it is too late so this is a new experience for me. I wonder if in the long run it will affect the outcome or whether my heart will win the fight as usual!!!! Watch this space!

Foiled again

Trying so hard to get organised! Need to sort out our home and finances for good this time. This month started well with me setting up a budget and calculating every last penny... and then BAM! Blummin bank charges . Forgot those sneaky buggers. Ah well struggle through to next month and we shall try again! Must stay positive when there is so much excitement to look forward to!!!
