Miscellany Monday

miscellany monday at lowercase letters


It always amazes me what will entertain a child. A bowl full of pegs and James is occupied for well over an hour..




Who needs expensive toys hey :)

Our friend brought his bouncy castle over on Saturday.. All the kids were in 7th heaven and I got some awesome photos.. 







That day my Sister and Brother-in-law took James to the beach. It was his first time there and apparently he loved it!! My Sister sent me this photo that she took.. I wish I had been there to see it but I was busy jumping on a Bouncy Castle...







When he got back I asked my Sister to bring him around the back so that the first thing he would see would be the Bouncy Castle.. I was there ready with my camera..

Last night we had a massive thunder storm with torrential rain.. It was awesome! After it had finished I happened to glance out of the kitchen window and there were clouds like I'd never seen before..





All in all it was a good weekend! If you want to share your Miscellany Monday then go link up with Carissa!

Have a good week!

Over the past few weeks with my laptop being sent off for repairs and the fact that I have been super super busy by blog has taken a back seat and I miss it. I always say that writing is more than a hobby for me.. It is my way of relaxing and processing all of the random crazy thoughts that I have constantly running through my head.. Now that hopefully things are slowing down I plan on re-focusing myself and my priorities.




He is the funniest person I know.. The last few weeks I can really see his imagination developing and it is fascinating to watch. Just last night we went to a pretend hospital because he had a rabbit in his stomach, then we drove his pretend car to a pretend house where the pretend sun when down so we had to go to pretend bed, then in the pretend morning we had to go to the pretend park and then onto the pretend restaurant where we ate pretend food.. It took 15 minutes out of my day but to him it was the best part of his day.

We've had friends staying with us for the past month and it's been fun! Him we knew from when Anthony was in the Army but we only met his girlfriend when they first came a month ago.. We've hit in off and I love it! I've found it hard to make friends since we moved back home from London two years ago so I love it when I connect with someone and it feels like I didn't even have to try.

Yesterday James walked up to me with my iPhone and said.. "Mummy, I wrote you this." 





Yes, he had written it all by himself.. I went running into the Living Room to show everyone.. It was a very proud Mummy moment :)

I've been experimenting with some cooking recipes lately.. I've never attempted any sauces for Steak Dinners, until last week... 






Steak with a Peppercorn Sauce and Sauteed Potatoes with Slow Roasted Tomatoes.. According to Anthony it was as good as you would expect in a restaurant! It was amazing, even if I do say so myself!


I hope you all have a good weekend!

Water Park

1 comment

I've lived in my town for a little under fourteen years, and it was only yesterday that I found out that there is a massive water park located a ten minute drive away.. I guess that shows how observant I am!

Our Summer started yesterday. Up until then all we had had was grey skies and rain but for the past two days we've had gorgeous sunny 30 degree weather so today we, along with our friend and their kids we hit up the water park.. I think I may have been more excited than all four kids put together.


It was packed! Apparently the whole of the town knew about this place except me!


James wasn't a fan of the water.. He takes a while to warm up to things like this so instead we took him to feed the ducks..




A nice couple let us take a look around their barge.. Now I want to go on holiday on one!





Anthony hates having his photo taken and thinks it's silly that I have to take my camera everywhere but today he obliged me.. Yay for photos with the hubby :)





And for photos with friends...




I love random days that turn into a real "Wow, I've had a great day!!"

Why, Hello There

1 comment

My laptop has been in the computer shop for a few weeks due to being poorly.. It was only meant to go in for the day but apparently it was worse than originally thought so it end up staying in for longer.. Which means that apart from my phone, I have been internet-less for a while and I am not ashamed to admit that I missed it!.

I will be back tomorrow for a proper update but for now I am off to check out some blogs that I've missed :)
