Sky left this on my desk this morning,
I've been working long hours lately, I'm sooooo ready for the kids to break up for Christmas!

I'm one lucky lady :)

just go with the flow

Every year I forget how crazy the festive season really is,

parties, disco's, dressing up as Victorian children carrying a large orange, the school performance of scrooge rehearsals, Christmas shopping, fundraiser curry night, family visiting, football practise, football match, street dance Christmas performance, posting out shop orders ..... should I go on! 
and this is just this week 

breath again
think of Alex Turner massaging those tension nodules out of your neck 
ooooo nice 
breath again
 grab your bag, fling your scarf round your neck 
and jump on the Christmas crazy train playing Wham's last Christmas 
and enjoy!

I love Christmas!

Sonny was always known as Bubba from Forest Gump when he was little because we never saw his top lip for the first couple of years of his life! He now loves the film and does a mean impression of Bubba shrimp ( to be said with bottom lip out )... shrimp salad, shrimp coconut, shrimp bar b q....... 

Today our Sonny turns 8! 

He's the cherry on our family cake, was amazingly positive when I was going through treatment and makes us laugh loads,
He's our little ray of sunshine, 
Happy birthday Bubba xxxx

Colour 1,

Colour 2,

Colour 3,

colour 5 and finished!

The little girl is based on Lily when she was little, 
Lil would potter around in a tutu, wooly tights and black patent boots, I've been trying to find a picture but just can't put my hands on one at the minute, but when I do I'll post it!

Our school run this morning was glorious, 
a proper boootiful Autumn morning, 
the trees looked stunning,
after this photo we ran down the hill doing aeroplanes! 
don't want my kids to grow up!.... who will I do aeroplanes with then?
Happy days 

Have a a good one.

sign of the times...

Me and Sky keep setting up little Playmobil scenes to photograph and then sell on Ebay to make space and earn some pocket money. I feel quite sad that the girls have grown out of all their toys and just want ipods and 'that's what I call Ibiza 452' ... I was very happy to let the 16 crazy hair cut Barbie's go but I'm not letting the Lego though, no way, I love it!

Be fab...

Yesterday I was the queen of multi-tasking,
helping Lil with fractions homework, helping Son make Tutankhamen (kicking myself I didn't take a pic before if was gracefully shoved into a co-op carrier and walked to school), made spinach soup and sausage pasta, picked picture frames up, planed screen prints, ironed uniform, put 2 washes on, 
etc etc etc etc ect......

today I'm living by this quote!
So after a morning swim and walk, 
I'm all ready to start the day fabulously!
Have a fab day!
