Day 111 – Halloween

It’s definitely starting to feel like Halloween in this house. The decorations are up, the tempers are fraught, the kids are being terrors (and not even in costume yet) and we’re nervously waiting out to see whether we enter another national lockdown. I notice I definitely eat my feelings (thankfully I’m not a fan ofContinue reading “Day 111 – Halloween”

Day 110 – Full circle

Today we went to a childrens farm. It’s actually become a special place to me. You see 112 days ago, I stumbled round this childrens farm, with my BB (Beautiful Baby), my SD and a raging hangover. It wasn’t a warm day, but I had the sweats, cotton wool mouth, a pounding head and IContinue reading “Day 110 – Full circle”

Day 98- Fricking Xmas cake

I decided to be all Mary Berry (instead of a merry berry) this year and have a go at baking a Xmas cake. I’ve never baked one before, but after watching mum as a child bake one I’ve always thought how hard could it be? For someone quite disorganised, its ridiculously hard. Firstly, my husbandContinue reading “Day 98- Fricking Xmas cake”

Day 96 –

I’ve never been tempted more than today to drink. The day in some respects has been lovely. BB and I went National Trusting with a friend. We both gazed in wonder at the colours of Autumn on a wood walk. She constantly reached up and tried to touch the leaves. We shared a lunch outsideContinue reading “Day 96 –”

Day 95 – Park Date

Day 95 was mostly spent outside in the glorious sunshine of a cold crisp winter/autumnal day. We’ve been kindly given a hand me down trike which BB used for the first time today and loved it. After walking round the block 3 times she screamed when it was time to come off. After lunch weContinue reading “Day 95 – Park Date”

Day 93 – Ugh

I’ve not really got any content to add today. I’m so disappointed with the latest lockdown news. I feel like the whole country pulled together at the start of the year to give the government time to come up with a strategy and all they’ve done is blow a ton of money and we’re backContinue reading “Day 93 – Ugh”

Day 90 – Just call me Gloria Gaynor

“At first I was afraid, I was petrified” I survived!!! the night…. which is a relief as I’m officially on day 90. Last night my mum shared these gems with me over a 4 hour period: I shouldn’t eat so much pasta (after she dishes up a massive bowl of spag bol for me). It’sContinue reading “Day 90 – Just call me Gloria Gaynor”

Day 82 – Day 2 of Isolation

Day 2 of isolation. I’ve eaten all the chocolate in the house. We have walked in the rain, I have crawled on my hands and knees pretending to be a dog and chasing BB. I have cleaned out our bathroom cupboard and found loads of hotel bath bottles so I can have a spa night.Continue reading “Day 82 – Day 2 of Isolation”

Day 73 – Gratitude (x2)

Dexter is setting in well. Day 2 and he’s already slept on the bed. BB adores him, but we are keeping an even closer eye on her when he’s around as we are desperate for him to feel safe. He just happens to be the most loving cat I’ve had the pleasure in coming across.Continue reading “Day 73 – Gratitude (x2)”

Day 61 – Afternoon Tea

Today I went for afternoon tea. But not any old afternoon tea, oh no, afternoon tea with my husbands ex wife. (Yes you read it right). To celebrate my step daughter donating her hair for charity, her mum booked this as a lovely surprise for her to say well done. Then kindly invited me toContinue reading “Day 61 – Afternoon Tea”
