New Wine – Day 5

Day 5 – 31/07/13 Last night we learnt that P2 is a sensitive sausage. We went into the main Arena right at the end of worship ready to wait for the Blind Date Show evening entertainment. P2 loved the lights and music, she even had her arm held out reaching for the lights, but when the show began she wasn’t …

New Wine – Day 2

Day 2 – 28/07/13 My OH and I fell asleep really early, and although it was obviously interrupted for me by P2 nuzzling for boobie, we had a pretty decent first night. We enjoyed a lovely cooked breakfast courtesy of my Mum and spent the morning relaxing in the outdoors with a mixture of sun and wind. P1 went to …

Holiday Mode

Today has been such a busy day! We’ve been busy preparing to go to New Wine. The majority of our evening has been spent packing, but this afternoon we managed to visit family. The girls also had their ears pierced today – I’m prepared for all the negative comments regarding this. P1 had her ears pierced when she was about …

Our Weekend Away to Aldeburgh

We’re back to reality. We spent Friday to Sunday in Aldeburgh, a very beautiful seaside town in Suffolk. We stayed at the Wentworth Hotel which was paid for by my Mum for my OH birthday present from them. The hotel was just stunning. Really old fashioned, very posh and the staff were all welcoming. We didn’t know what to expect …

Festival

Considering we didn’t actually get to sleep until about 11:30pm because of arriving home late from Kent. P2 slept from 11:30 until 6:10am this morning. Technically, a full night sleep because I wasn’t woken up by her. I haven’t really talked about my Christian life much. I used to attend church every Sunday, but when I met my OH it …

May Bank Holiday Fun In The Sun

We’ve had a lovely bank holiday Monday with my MiL! I even experienced my first half pint of alcohol (cider to be precise) since… Well about a year. I decided, half wouldn’t hurt especially as I’d just fed pher!! It’s not like I’m some sort of breastfeeding alcoholic. Although there is a part of me that is scared I’ll harm …

Insanity Forecasted For Easter Half Term

This morning my OH participated in the Ace Cafe Southend Shakedown. I’ve never seen him so motivated to be up early. He does love his motorbike. P1 loves to watch him and spent ages watching out of the window. P2 and I joined her but P1 soon got bored and left us watching. We eventually saw him an hour later! …

Too Short

Well, reluctantly, we are home. Home to a messy bedroom that I’ve been meaning to tidy for weeks. Home to a normal house. Home to a house where the bathroom floors are cold. Home to traffic noise and houses wherever you look. Home to cooking and cleaning for yourself. Home to living on top of everyone. Ok so it pretty …

Picturesque

Cannot believe how beautiful this place is. The house. The surroundings. The villages. The seaside. The family.

Typical Illness

Guess who’s suddenly come down with sickness… All four of us!! How typical is that. We all go on holiday – P1 has a terrible cough, P2 has a gunky eye, my OH has a growing cyst thing, and I have a cold. Yesterday, I couldn’t bend over without dripping everywhere and I kept sneezing. By the end of the …

50 Years

I’ve had to keep my mouth shut about a weekend away that’s been planned since October last year. I’ve been itching to post about it. My OHs Grandparents are celebrating their 50th wedding anniversary tomorrow. Crazy how different generations change things so drastically. How many people even celebrate 25years these days?! My MiL organised a special weekend for them. Renting …
