Living Arrows 9/52

Like butter wouldn’t melt? Before I took this picture, they were both running round Vision Express, and generally not listening to me! I was blind as I was having new lenses put in and they took full advantage I think!

Precious Time {The Ordinary Moments}

I am on countdown mode till I find out wether H is going to be joining Moo at her school in September.. Its a stressful time and as the days past rather quickly I am trying my damn hardest to cherish the afternoons I have with him.

I actually do not know what I will do when he starts school. I have applied for a job, but I will be completely lost. When Moo started  play school I had just had H I was never on my own and we have been inseparable ever since. He is always there, behind me in the kitchen when I am making lunch, at my side when we are eating, fishing his way through the shopping bags on a Thursday afternoon to find something nice, watching me hang the washing up and putting away.. He is my little mate and I am going to struggle when he does start school. I know he will be ok, he has his big sister looking out for him, but me? who is there for me? who is going to be following me around and shouting mummy when they need me.. I will be on my own and its a scary scary prospect!

From now till September I am on precious time, time I need to not take for granted and cherish with all my might..

The Week That I Captured 9/52

Back to reality this week! Boooo… By Wednesday I had pretty much had enough of the school run and I am just happy there are only 4 weeks left till the Easter holidays!! Yippeeeeee!

Anyhoo, without to much waffling this is what else we got up too!

Sunday

Sunday Mr B was at work so I had planned to have a chilled out day. The kiddies played well and we had a wonderful pj day! I prepped everything ready for the return of school and was rather chilled when they were in bed!

As the Mr was working I decided not to do the traditional Sunday roast.. So I opted for fajitas instead!

Monday

With Moo back at school and H having to miss his first day back at play-school due to a pre-op at the hospital we were pretty busy! I rushed Moo into school and me and Mr B made a quick dash to the hospital to make the 9.20 appointment! It was tight but we got there with 5 minutes to spare!

We all left by 10:30 and were back home by 11, H not feeling overly confident he would have to come back! He was more excited about the copious amount of Thomas toys in the playroom!

Tuesday

H was back at play school and as much as he wanted to go back he was a little terror with me leaving him! He was pretty much hanging of my leg and was not showing any signs of letting go! Eventually I managed to settle him down and I was on my way back home to watch the eagerly anticipated Broadchurch final!

Later me and Mr B went to the shops, we had to buy a gift for H for his hospital visit, and we had a cheeky coffee in peace!

When we returned home, I snuggled on the sofa with a hot water bottle and my crochet.. I wasn’t feeling 100%

Wednesday

Once all kiddies were dropped of at school, I went to my sisters. We had a quick lunch and then popped into town. I wanted to check out Aldi.. To be honest I wasn’t entirely impressed! No saving on my shopping for me!! Some of the brands I wasn’t keen on and they didn’t do proper coke! *coke snob*

Thursday

With the Mr now working late’s for the next few nights I was prepping everything early! I was up rather early so I managed to get all the uniform ironed for the next day BEFORE the school run! Was pretty impressed! I even managed two cups of tea before I left too!

I came home and had a couple electricians round fixing a few problems! We found out that we had a live wire hanging out so we had to book in an emergency booking for someone to come round and fix that too!

Later I ahd to go and pick up my new lenses! I was blind for over an hour and a half and it was really scary! Especially as I had to take the kiddies with me! They misbehaved a little as it was a pretty long wait in the waiting room for them, I ended up taking them to McDonalds for their tea! I was good and saved myself for my dinner for when I was home, minted lamb!

Friday

My favourite day! Picked the kiddies up, cooked pizza for tea and generally relaxed! The week back at school and play school had knackered both kids out so they asked for an early night! I had the evening to my self so I caught up on all my recorded programmes until the Mr arrived home at 8.30!

The weather was glorious today!!

Saturday

With the Mr at work today I had to wait in all day for this emergency call out! Was a pretty chilled out day, playing games and eating lots!

Show & Tell 2/52

I am determined to start a blog hop / link up that people will join in with.. I started one up in January but it fizzled out rather quickly when 1. it was too similar to someone else and 2. nobody popped by!

I think the best ones are when its not themed, you can just link up whatever you like. So this is where I step in and give you “Show and Tell”

This is the second week of “Show & Tell!”

All you have to do is link up a favourite post, old or new that you have written! The linky opens weekly and you have all week to join in! Feel free to add my badge if you like to the bottom of your post.

The Brits, End Of Seasons and Broken Hard Drives Little Love 9/52

Happy Friday peeps… Another week has passed and its time for another little catch up with all the lovely bloggers that link up with Morgana and their #littleloves

I am not sure about you, but I am fed up with the rain! Its been constant all week and always seems to start on the school run! Why is that? Its been pretty hectic this week trying to fit back into the routine of everything, but I think we are getting there!

But without too much waffling, this is what I have been loving this week!

Read

Yesterday, I had to go and re-new my lenses in my glasses.. It was a pretty surreal event as I had to hand my glasses over which left me blind! Everything was a blur! I had both children with me and it wasn’t till H said he needed the loo that I felt really vulnerable! I ended up waiting well over the hour for them, so I took them to McDonalds for their tea, I tried to read a magazine to no avail! Quite worrying that my eyes have deteriorated so bad! **Sorry completely off topic there!**

Watched

I think this is going to play a huge part over most of the little loves this week… Madonna!!!!! Seriously I was mortified for her! What a trooper to get up an carry on, I think I would run away!!

Another biggy this week was the final of Broadchurch.. It was jammed packed and my heart was racing the whole way through! I am glad they cleared up the whole second murder because I don’t think I could of waited till season 3! I am pretty gutted of the outcome of the original case.. I don’t know what to think now!! Who actually killed the boy!?!?!

The Walking Dead was intense this week and I was screaming the whole way through! It was literally zombie galore and I just couldn’t take it! I cannot wait for this weeks episode! They left it on a cliff hanger as usual! My instincts tell me that all is not as it seems!

Heard

Ok, I watched the brits this week and I have expressed how much I absolutely love Sam Smith and Paloma Faith on this blog so many times, so this week its all about them! I adore the new song from Sam Smith and I just cannot get enough of it lately!

An old song from Paloma Faith but one of my favourites.. She deserved the brit this week and I think she is so bloody great!

Wore

Welly boots, the weather has been pants and its the first time I have dug them out this year.

Made

Since last week I have not picked my hooks up.. So I still have not reached the half way mark but I am sure it will happen really soon.

I haven’t made anything that is worth shouting about, apart from another Lasagne! I am getting better with age…

‘And lastly..’

This week my external HD packed up which means that all my photos/videos which I have taken for the last 6 years are actually not assessable as they are on there! I have stressed out so much this week and I am gutted that I could potentially loose the lot!! I am going to take it somewhere and hopefully they will be able to retrieve all the data! the hard drive isn’t that old either!

Hope you all have a lovely weekend!

A Mothers Worry…

Today is pre-op day for little H.. Its a weird feeling I have, I don’t want to leave him and I am scared for him.

When Moo had her operation on her ears, she knew what was happening. I explained everything to her as best as I could. She was full of questions and although I left out the injection bit she handled it really well. As I walked out of the room as she was fighting the sleepy drug I choked up and thought to my self, I could not put H through this. H is different, he is my baby and he is so small compared to Moo.

H is having something entirely different done and its a longer healing process and one I am not looking forward too. H is unaware of what is to come. I have tried to explain but he refuses to believe it and just thinks he is going to see a doctor. I don’t want to see him in recovery like I saw his sister. She was distraught and I couldn’t do anything to help her. I was a blubbering mess and I can’t control my emotions when I think of H having to go through it.

I keep relaying Moo’s operation round in my head which she had in December and I just can’t come to terms with H having to have one.. Its important he has it done it will be so much better for him but I just need a little nudge to say                  everything will be ok

Once its done, thats it, hopefully they both will never have to have any kind of operation again! Its stressful, the waiting is stressful, and now we are so close to D-Day it seems to be going rather slowly!

When I set out to be a parent, I didn’t think things like this would happen, I just thought I would have a child and everything would be ok and we could get on with life with no problems. But these little hiccups just make us all stronger and hopefully make life easier.

Its just not fair, not fair on Moo, or H to have to be put through it.. 

Living Arrows 7/52

I am a week behind on living arrows, I forgot to link up last week! I blame half term…

When I had children, within the first year I thought of all the things they would eventually play with and one of the things i was most excited about was Lego! When I was little I had a huge box full of the stuff and I absolutely loved it.. I didn’t care that it was all mixed up..

Being a parent of two who now have quite a collection of Lego, it bugs the hell out of me when its not together.. I know its all about imagination if its just sitting in a box, but I love to see them playing with the actual building, or the built cars. It takes me back to when I was a child when I sit there and rebuild the trashed Cinderella castle or the beaten up Police Station!

Its part of childhood, to trash it all though isn’t it?

Helping Hand {The Ordinary Moments}

Moo is obsessed with her cousin {she takes after me} Every time we are at my sisters she always wants to help out, apart from the nappy changes!! {wonder why?}

This week was half term so we all went over to my sisters which is quite rare now school gets in the way. After a day of playing find the eggs and a yummy dinner cooked by my sister it was time for the “helping hand”

I used to find bath time really stressful and I took having a bath for granted. Not actually having a bath now and having a step in shower makes bath time in our house even more stressful than I ever thought it could be! I jumped at the chance of bathing the kids at my sisters. First off Little O.. With the help of his cousins and brother of course!

The Week That I Captured 8/52

Half term week has been pretty busy! Its been a fun ole week and I am gutted its coming to a close! It was the week that I made the best lasagne to date too! Yummy

Anyhoo, without to much waffling this is what else we got up too!

Sunday

Went to the in-laws for dinner today and chilled when we got home.. I was oh so excited i didn’t need to do the full on routine of ironing uniforms!

On route we decided to stop off and have a look at some garden furniture! We ended up buying a four seater rattan set! Cannot wait for summer..

I dyed my hair once back.. Grey hairs were starting to make their way through!!

Monday

Today we went to my sister-in-laws for lunch.. We are only able to get together in the holidays so it was lovely to see everyone. It became a bit hairy when H decided to throw up everywhere!! It happened really quickly! He was complaining of ear ache which was probably the reason!

I had my first hot chocolate of the year from a home machine! Was devine.. Its kicked started my hot chocolate obsession and I have had plenty more this week!

I took Moo to her swimming lesson because as quickly as the sickness came on it quickly disappeared! Moo swam perfectly on her back and even moved up a group!!

Tuesday

I braved the soft play today and had hour in I regretted it! It was so busy!! We were supposed to meet someone there but they got lost so we ended up leaving early and going to theirs for lunch! It was a better atmosphere!!

Wednesday

We made another exit out of the house today and went to see my sister! Mr B was on late’s so I stayed for dinner! Hotdog and chips!! It was lush! I managed to bath the kiddies as well.. Since moving into the house we only have a shower so it was lovely for them to have a little play!

Thursday

Mr B was off today so we decided to take the kiddies bowling! We were planning a cinema trip too and decided as we had deliveries coming tomorrow we would go later on today! We saw Big Hero 6 and it was really good! Everyone enjoyed it, and for H’s first cinema trip it went down well!

Friday

I went to see my nan in hospital today.. It was lovely to see her progressing and doing so well!

Our garden furniture that we ordered on Sunday was also delivered which I am really excited about!

I had an eye appointment this evening and unfortunately I need new glasses! Bummer!!

Saturday

I went to see my other sister-in-law today as she had spontaneously bought a puppy!! Its the most adorable thing I have seen and I am am badgering Mr B for one now!
