The weekly bits & bobs.


Not gonna lie, the last week or so has been extremely stressful. I haven't had a lot of time for blogging and when I have had time, I've been so tired! Anyway, school is finally out for summer. The kids and I are excited to enjoy the summer holidays and make the most of no school routine! Hoorah! Here are the best and worst parts of this week.

The weekly bits and bobs and the best and worst of this week

  • My grandad was a victim of fraud and I've been helping him get that all sorted out. I hate how people pray on vulnerable pensioners. How dare they! I really feel so sorry for my grandparents.
  • I haven't been sleeping very well again. I've had a lot on my mind.
    My neurologist appointment last week didn't really go to well. I would like a second opinion on that. I don't really feel like writing about it but it's nothing new or serious (Thank goodness!).
  •  Life has just been hectic and chaotic but hopefully things will calm down now. My anxiety hasn't been good at all. It's the worst it has ever been! 



  • Charlie's leavers assembly, school play and picnic was amazing! I am SO proud of him. I still can't believe he'll be starting high school in September. CRAZY! I may have cried a bit, lol.
  • Ellie is excited to start year 4 and Harry is SO ready for year 8. I'm really proud of them all. 
  • SCHOOL IS OUT! No more for school routines etc for six weeks! We've been looking forward to the school break. 
  • I've lost 6lb in 11 days! It's probably not noticeable to anyone else but I notice it. I think it's all the walking I've been doing and also probably, stress has played a part in that. I'm going to stick with the weight loss now and watch what I eat and keep up with 10k steps a day.
  • The weather has been amazing. Even if a little too hot for me, it's been nice because we've been able to spend a lot of time outside. May have even been Pokemon hunting, hehe. 
  • I've started buying school uniforms already. Well, I've made a small start but none the less. It is a start. I'm going to have to order the boys blazers, P.E kits and what not this week which will allow plenty of time for the uniforms to arrive in time for September. I can get most of Ellie's in ASDA or Tesco's I can't believe I'm thinking about this already! This year has flown by
  • I had cuddles with my mums kittens. They are ADORABLE! She already has two adult cats and now three kittens. I wish I could have one but I can't. Two cats is enough for me... for now.

beautiful fluffy kittens

Things to do this week/To look forward to.
  • A picnic! I really want to take the kids on a picnic sometime this week. We've found a beautiful spot when we went Pokemon hunting and exploring the other day! 
  • I need to order uniforms and some name labels. 
  • Another things I am looking forward to is a child free day! It happens rarely and as much as I love my children -They're my whole world and beyond-, a few hours break will be great - I can go grocery shopping in peace, haha. 
  • I must remember to make myself an appointment with my GP so I can discuss the neurologist appointment.
Overall I think the positives out weigh the negatives. Just about. I've been spending a lot of time with my grandparents, especially after what has happened and it's good that we live close. I'm so glad the kids have broke up from school, a break from the school routine is very welcome! :)
