Busy busy times

Hello lovely people.

I haven't been around for a couple of days, it has been quite busy here. We have had some time with  Liam which has been lovely but he has been working nights for a couple of days so he has had to head off to work at 9.30.

My thirteen year old has his Duke of Edinburgh expedition this weekend so we have been busy working out menu plans and getting his camping gear ready, he has to have 3000 calories per day, he also has to have a lunch that he can eat whilst walking as they are not allowed to have a break until dinner time; They will be taken by a blacked out vehicle to a wooded area and given co-ordinates that they have to reach two days later. In the meantime they have to survive. I'm not sure I would be capable of doing this.

My youngest son has one of his best friends coming to dinner tomorrow night and then has his other best friends birthday party on Saturday. The birthday party is Ice skating and then dinner in a local restaurant. Lucky boy! His best friends are very sweet little girls and he has been friends with them since he started school.

Sunday is fathers day but I think I will be visiting my dad on Saturday as I don't know what time my thirteen year old will need picking up from his expedition. 

Today I popped home from school just after lunch to pack my sons bag, it had to be checked tonight and on my way back up to the school it started to poor with rain and I got soaked. When I finally got home I had a shower to try and warm up but I still feel cold now so I am going to head off to bed to snuggle up in my duvet cover now.

With sad things still in the news I hope you and your families are keeping safe and well.

Take care xx


  1. Good luck to your son on his Duke of Edinburgh Expedition! How many kids are in his group? Are they racing against other teams or is it purely and orientation challenge?

    It feels so weird to read that you're feeling cold because it's been so darn hot here.

    I hope you have a great Friday. I was sad to read about Jo Cox's murder. Poor kids who will grow up without a mom because of yet another mad man :(

  2. Thanks Nathalie, I think he was a bit worried about walking so far. They are racing against other teams, on the practise they came in third out of twelve teams so we will see.

    Its not turned warm at all here yet, its constant rain Yuk!

    Its awful what happened to Jo Cox, she was doing what she believed to be the right thing, she was a good person that did not deserve something like that to happen to her. I feel for her family xxx
