Just found this on my camera roll (having taken a screenshot of it last weeek). It put a much needed smile on my face this evening. 7 years on and my boy is now totally aware that the only running Mummy ever does is of the late variety! Happy #humpday.❤x
Its friday, I’m tired sleep has abandoned me this week. I was a bit grumpy at the gym because my sock wasn’t comfortable~believe it or not I am 44 and not 4 and the only oomph I found was when I was leaving the gym and practically jogged out because I wanted to get to costa before work!
In other news my daughter made me cry last night~I came home and she had cut the grass and made dinner when I thanked her for doing so she said ‘Its ok I like to do things to help you’. I hope she knows how much those things mean to me, a truly thoughtful girl.❤x
The summer holidays have gone far too quick for my liking but they’ve been fun. Even though I’ve spent this evening (and many more before) annoying them by singing ‘I’m bored in the house’ on repeat, they love it really I’m sure! There’s never a dull moment in this crazy house but I wouldn’t change it for the world.❤x
Somehow despite growing up in this somewhat crazy and usually unorganised house we call home~I have managed to raise children who hate being late, that’s all good obviously but I had to laugh at this conversation this morning.
Me~We will leave at 8.20am this morn
Ads~why we usually leave at 8.25 am
Me~oh ok 8.25am it is then.
Ads~I mean we could leave a bit later if you like?
Back to school, back to early alarm calls and packed lunches~2 of my least favourite things! As ever I’m always looking for new/different ideas to tempt the kids with. This weekend we have been trying LOVE CORN and absolutely loving it.
These delicious crunchy corn snacks are available in a range of flavours, sea salt, habernero chilli, salt and vinegar and smoked bbq they are gluten free and vegan also.
For me I love the fact they make a great alternative to crisps and an ideal lunch box filler or anytime snack. Which is great because the kids can’t get enough of them.
The resealable packs are great for when you are on the go~keeping them fresh and easy to carry.
Here in the crazy house we have loved each delicious flavour and want to give you the chance to try Love Corn for yourself. Head over to their website https://bit.ly/2M9sjhc and enter ‘CRUNCH20’ to receive 20% off.
