…still debating whether to buy a coffee machine or not. It would be much more convenient, but the takeaway cups from Costa are so much cuter than my mugs at home!
…getting a bit confused as to whether it actually is Winter or not. In Ireland it is, in the UK it’s not. It’s like ‘the dress’ all over again.
Who else enjoys reading the adventures of Meg, Mog, Owl and SUPERMAN?!
We read Meg and Mog this evening in an effort to get into the Halloween spirit. It’s been one of my son’s favourite books ever since he was a baby. He’s always been interested in anything spooky and the narrations are so bright and colourful they’ve always grabbed his attention.
You love the ‘Hurrah for Gin’ Facebook page, laugh at the ‘Hurrah for Gin’ Instagram account and are tickled by the ‘Hurrah for Gin’ Twitter account, so the question is… should you buy the book?
Katie Kirby is best known for her hilarious and highly relatable cartoons and the book contains many of them.
Run, run, as fast as you can, you can’t catch me I’m the ice cream van!
Since E started pre-school we’ve been doing less in the afternoons as he often says that he’s tired. The thing is that I’ve started wondering if ‘I’m tired’ can actually be translated as ‘I can’t be bothered to go outside I’d rather play on the ipad.’
…love Autumn leaves WHEN THEY’RE OUTSIDE. Not when they’re found in pockets of trousers that have been washed…
…switching from Prosecco to red wine now the evenings are getting colder. The only bubbles I like at the moment are the ones in my hot bath.
My little piglet had been counting down the days for ‘Peppa Pig’s Surprise’ for weeks so by Sunday he was literally snorting with excitement. (He has Daddy Pig’s oink nailed).
We arrived at the Olympia Theatre with plenty of time to spare (very unlike us) and made our way up the stairs of the ‘Circle’ entrance.
Do you find it strange when strangers say hello?
I went for a quick stroll this morning after dropping my son off to pre-school. We were in a bit of a rush so it was good to relax for a few minutes before I got into my blogging.
Walks are relaxing aren’t they. Aren’t they?
I decided we should head out for a stroll yesterday afternoon thinking that we would come back refreshed and rejuvenated. Unfortunately, when we returned I was tense and ready to tear my hair out.
Phew! We’ve done it! We’ve survived the first full week of pre-school! It’s a been a big change to our routine and we’ve come across a few hurdles but thankfully we haven’t tripped up yet.
The first challenge we’ve had is being up and out by 8:45am for five days in a row.
That’s it. It’s official; I have a pre-schooler.
It’s the day that I’ve been both looking forward to and dreading for the last few months. Looking forward to because I’ll have an extra few hours to myself each day for blogging, writing and going to the gym amongst other things. Dreading because it means he’s definitely now a ‘big boy’.
