A lot of everything ... !!!


Oh what fun we have had the past few weeks!!  Really it has just been family life all the way with a little bit of study ... which saw my last assignment being sent in so I am now as free as a little birdie until October!!

Ryan has been on a short (educational) holiday with the school!

Ryan has also been accepted at the secondary school that we chose, the same one his big brother James went too, so we know he will do fantastic there!!

Cara will be turning 5 years old in 2 weeks time so we a busy planning her party!!  She is just way too excited!  

I haven't really done much stitching but I am sure I will get back into the swing of it soon now that all the move and deadlines have been met!!

Back to a normal, less crazy way of life ... (I Hope)  :)

Pictures speak louder than words ... so here are a few family photos .... ooooo speaking of photos the children had their school pictures taken the other week at school and the group on of them is just a treat!!!  I cannot wait to get the big photo of them all!!  

This is just a photo of the proof from the photographers ... It is a little blurry but its still an absolute stunner of a school photos but then again I would say that since they are all my cutie pies lol 

Ryan, Conor, Mark, Katie and Cara

Now, too sit back and enjoy the month of June as we have a lot of exciting events coming up!!  As you know I am PR for the Parents' Council at the kiddies school, well we have Summer Fete, Year 7 leavers party and play to do and a few other bits and pieces!!  Its a busy happy yet sad month as Ryan spends his last few weeks as a Primary school Boy before big school turns him into a man!!  

Well that's all for now folks ... my bed is calling me lol  It sure does feel good to be finally settled in our little home and all the 'nasty' stuff sorted out :)

See ya soon!!

Love H

So Sorry ....

I have been away for over a month!  Wow no posts from me for a month!!

The reason .... well .... I have moved home :D  YAY!!!

It all happened so very fast!  I have been looking for a long time for a house closer to town and the schools or maybe not quite so far to drive for the school bus!  We were way out in the countryside and totally not practical for us at all plus I got so much hassle from the landlord that I'd had enough of living there!  Then a good friend told me of this house that was up for rent!  

At the time my mum and dad were over for a visit when I went to view the new house!  It was chaos and crazy lol  I went with James to look at the house and providing I could pay the deposit there and then we would be able to rent the house because the owner said that we would be perfect for the house plus she knew how much easier life would be for my family.  I think I also won her over because I was prepared to live in the house for as long as they rented the house!!  I shall not be moved!  I also told her about my previous landlord and asked and made sure that the same thing would not happen here!!  In other words "Don't you do the same things" lol  It was a big hint really but it had to be said!!  It was also brilliant because I got to show mum and dad the house I was moving into before they left to go back to their home :)

So here we are ... all moved in and settled :)  Now back to a nice routine :)  It is so much easier here as the bus stop is a walk away as is the shop and the park!!  Oh we can have a social life with people and not sheep haha lol :D  

On a sad note, I have not been able to do much stitching at all!!  For the next few weeks I will be writing up my last assignment for my University course.  Once that is done and sent I will be like a loon getting the end of school year stitching gifts done!!  WOW I started them in January and I am no where near completed!!
