I'm just off back to bed after a day spent in bed. Yours truly was struck down last night with the dreaded V&D bug, not pleasant at all. Thank goodness DH was back home and could take care of DS. I didn't get out of bed properly today until 4.30pm although I did try at … Continue reading Saturday
As some of you know, DH has spent the last 2 days in Derbyshire with his parents. My FIL fell off a chair trying to put a new battery in the smoke alarm, hurting his back and my MIL had a fall and tore ligaments in her ankle. DH has been trying to speak to … Continue reading Family Update

On a normal day in our house the TV in the kitchen is never on during DS's mealtimes. However, today was no normal day. Today DS and I watched history in the making as Barack Obama was sworn in as the 44th President of the United States of America. I don't mind admitting that I … Continue reading History In The Making
Early on in the New Year I sent off my application form for the Armed Forces Veterans Badge. It always used to bug me that I had nothing to show for 11 years service, apart from some uniform that nobody ever once asked for back when my reserve service was up. Mind you, my Number … Continue reading It’s Official, I’m A Veteran!
Things are moving along nicely. The main loft is almost finished, as is the stairwell. The front gates have had their coat of undercoat ready for the proper paint and the papering is still to be done. The front gates were in need of some attention so it was lucky for us that the workman … Continue reading Loft Progress #32
An American friend of DH's popped round yesterday afternoon to see DS, as she hasn't seen him since he was a proper baby, and she said that DS was beautiful. Now obviously, we think that but it's always so lovely when someone unrelated to you says it as well! Thanks, Suzanne! Here he is just … Continue reading My Beautiful Boy
I've been looking in DS's album and it needs updating badly. I must remember not to put every LO with him on into our current year album. For both of these LOs I've used this month's Scrapagogo kit. I sorted through my stash yesyerday afternoon and I really do need to go on a stash … Continue reading LOs Starring DS
I managed to capture these lovely shots today of DS at breakfast time, when he was engrossed in the free magazine from Ocado and at lunchtime, when he finally had a go at feeding himself yoghurt (with just a little bit of help from Daddy!).
I've decided that I should try and make the best use of my time while DS is at nursery Tuesday and Thursday mornings, and to that end I've joined the local library's book group. It meets once a month on the 1st Thursday from 10am - 11.30am. Perfect. All I have to do before 5th … Continue reading Book Group
