I do adore my family, I'm actually very fond of them but yesterday I informed Mr F I needed some Mama time (also known as sitting down with a cup of tea/coffee and catching up with you all in Blogland)
(if my children do read this of course I love you all very, very much, I lub oo, love you Te'rever, love you forever)
As it get's very busy in the Summer holidays with the kids insisting we 'do stuff', uniform shopping (which can be a wholly unbearable experience) blah blah blah, I can get a little stroppy and demand some time by myself, it's absolutely necessary! at times I need quiet like I need oxygen (oh, the drama!)
That's one of the Anthony Gormley 'Another Place' sculptures on the right
quite eerie but brilliant
and Wales, also in the distance
Liverpool is about 40 minutes away
Wales is like a second home
The Brilliant London 2012 Olympics Opening Ceremony
I give you the cheapest Olympics in anyone's back garden
thrilling games such as the 'apple and spoon race',
'throw the ball in a bucket'
'throw the hoop on the umbrella stand'
and many other thrilling games
we sneer at danger
the 'lash the mallet' was a roaring success
(Disclaimer; first aid should have attended, unfortunately my First Aid certificate ran out years ago and was unable to provide medical assistance to Mr F who pulled a muscle however Little Miss who put her hands in prickly weeds was given piriton, allergy medicine)
Missy was the winner
Little Miss and Mr F joint second
I was the judge (I had a whistle and everything!)
Only because they are the cutest socks
Continuing the 'Cheap' theme
this whole outfit cost very little
a £1 skirt and a top made from an old dress (the bottom is now an underskirt)
I'm way into being festooned with flowers
and for Sue
my hand-cranked dress/top creation, which is now an undergarment for windy days
which technically means I am flaunting myself in my scanties
I had to adorn it though
the very idea of being unadorned made me feel positively faint
Sassy B taking the youngest to a fancy, swanky burger place
it's her turn,
the younger ones are growing at a rate of knots
both their feet have grown 1 size in the last few weeks
Thank you for your concern and sweet comments regarding Little Miss's broken arm
she has been a trouper and is doing marvellously, Missy's tummy bug was a 24 hour one,
my maniacal bleaching of bathrooms may have prevented further outbreaks
I do hope you are all having a wonderful start to the week
.....hang on, it's Wednesday!
where is the time going??
Have fun and I'll see you soon, you delicious bunch!
