The ups and downs of life


I'm in the last week of my current supply work stint I don't feel like I've stopped in ages it's all go, go, go here.  At the weekend Princess was unwell, yesturday she was sent home from school due to feeling unwell.  Thankfully she's back to her usual self today.  When we collected the kids from school today Pixie seemed unhappy (out of character) she currently has a temperature and is sleepy (now asleep in n the sofa). She had the nasal flu vaccine at school yesturday so it may well be a reaction to that.  I'm hoping the temperature subsides soon.

I'm not sleeping at the moment and I'm completely shattered (side affect to my medication).  On a plus point  Peaches has gone up a stage in her reading books and been working well at school (very proud).

Hoping the bad bits pass us by soon

Remberance day


Today is remembrance Sunday and Princess played her guitar today as part of the church service (very proud).  This weekend has seen me doing my famous blue arsed fly impression of a busy working mum lol.  I have my last week on this block of supply work coming up, it's a busy week in school we have a bring and buy for children in need ( I've made two trays of cakes) and we are dressing as super hero's on Friday as a member of staff this means me too.  I have sorted out my costume and made my ears for my cat woman costume.  It is all go here.

I have so much to sort for Christmas and really need to get some brain space to be able to sort it all out. Eeeek!

Have a good week!

Bonfire night


Last night saw us donning our big coats and wellies and heading to the bonfire at the local cricket club.  The event was very well attended despite the rain coming down side ways (I did think at one point we must be mad for being stood outside in the dark in that weather lol).  The parish hall lay on tuck shops and hot dog vans (good luck with getting to the front of the queue).

Instead I did a nice hot tea of hotdogs in buns with onions and ketchup served with chips (bonfire night food) we also took a bag of snacks with us.

It was wet, muddy and sliddy but so much fun the fireworks were great the prettiest I've ever seen.

Who else braved the rain for bonfire night?

Must dash and carry on getting things sorted before I go to work, its Friday big shop night so I need to do a list.
