Where Have I Been?

Oh man, did anyone miss me? I guess you didn’t, but I like that intro, makes me feel important. I should have been blogging about our day out yesterday, we had planned on going to Newry again and also adding in some sightseeing because the weather was amazing. We had sat yesterday morning and done […]

Kids Stuff

**** This post is out of sync with the others. It should have been posted on Monday, and it’s Friday now. I’m not sure what happened, but I just found it in my drafts folder. Maybe I saved it for a reason, whatever that reason is I can’t remember now. So here’s Monday’s update, a […]

January Round Up

I need to take stock! I have spent a fair amount of time sick in the last 12 months. There’s been ups and downs, a few hospital trips and a lot of soul searching. I have neglected my friends, online and real life. I’ve not gone to my groups or meetings, avoided social situations too. […]

What Is It About Birthdays?

What is it about birthdays lately? We don’t seem to have the luck that we need to have a complete birthday without some sort of incident. Last night other half was taking Mag to his club and the car went ‘pop’.  Out of the exhaust billowed thick black smoke and after a few minutes it […]

Where have I been?

Where have I been? I know, I know, it has been forever since I last updated the blog. I have ran out of excuses, there are none! I was just dead lazy and I got even lazier when I thought of all the other times I apologised at being lazy and reading other blogs where […]

Babies ….

Well you will never guess what happened in our house. We had two rabbits, and we were told they were boy rabbits. I guess that’s where this whole thing was flawed, anyhow …. We got another rabbit and he too was a male! Or so we thought, in our defence rabbits are difficult to sex. […]

Deja Vu

Do you ever get the feeling of deja vu? Well I did today …. Long story short, I had popped out to Homebase to get some paint and wallpaper while leaving Roy at home. Roy was busy stripping in the bedroom while the children were occupied playing in their bedrooms. We got some great bargains […]

Nuff Said

I suppose this ought to be a chat post, as I usually just post photographs on my blog. The last two weeks have the usual blend of ‘skooling‘ and every day life. Seb had his Boys Brigade parents night, he bagged himself a badge and made us proud as usual. Seb has tried so very […]

WHAT A BALLS UP

WAAAAAA 7:10 this morning my alarm clock went off! Oh no sorry, it wasn’t my alarm clock it was Ellis and he was extremely upset. I got up to investigate, Seb was telling me he had a ball in his ear. A little silver ball from a stupid plastic party bag maze game, how on […]

DEVIL RABBIT

Dougal was out all night it seems. I mean OUT loose in the garden with the driveway gates open onto a road and foxes roaming about. Roy swears both rabbits were in the hutch last night when he fed them so there is only one other explanation …….. Dougal is a devil rabbit he must […]

One Door closes …

One door closes and another opens … This is not the case for Seb, my poor little boy who has a sore head now thanks to a well known supermarket’s front doors. The supermarket is on Main Street, Bangor, otherwise known as ASDA! I will start by saying I have no issues with ASDA and […]

Ghosts and Teeth

I knew there was something I had forgotten! Typical I scratch my head trying to remember the last weeks events to put together a blog post and I forget the thing that affected me a lot! We have a ghost called Maureen in our house. Well one night last week we were awakened during the […]

Day out to W5 – PART 1

I am saying part 1 as the most of the day went great for us, but we did have an incident this morning. We headed off fairly early this morning to go to W5 at the Odyssey Arena in Belfast. W5 is a science museum for kids, and the children all love it so much […]

You read in the previous blog post about our wedding anniversary being a disaster … well trying to salvage what was left of the weekend we decided to attempt to do something with the children on Sunday. Hollie had a birthday party to go to in the afternoon so we thought it might be nice […]

Thursday 10th July

It was a busy time the last few days.Last Thursday found me ‘popping’ out to get some new dinner plates. I mean every day dinner plates not the sort you put out for guests, the sort the kids can drop and you wont cry too much. I actually liked the cheap earthenware ones in a […]

Families

I am not talking about my immediate family i.e. husband and four children but other (so called) family members here. I had the wind taken from my sails last week – I found some nasty things written about me on an Internet blog. There is an old saying that goes something like “you can think […]

My sun tan that is. I hate how that stuff smells so I always put in on an hour before I shower, that way I get the tan without the icky coconut smell. I love coconut but this stuff stinks. Sitting here smelling icky I thought I had better give you a quick update… We […]

A peg too close! 13th April 2008

Look at this! This yellow peg which is from one of those picture maker toys. This peg ended up side aways up my Seb’s nose. Funny – yeah right! I put him for time out, he was being stupid and the sad thing is I cannot even remember now why he was in time out. […]
