PST! Big news! We are getting chickens! Last night was the most ridiculous purchase of our lives. Over £1k the coop and run cost! Ouch! But it's plastic and from eglu so shouldn't have any mite issues and should be quick and easy to clean! I couldn't bring myself out right to say a firm yes lets do it. Too scared lol! But pets will be good for the girls as we haven't had any yet! I am somewhat terrified or all the what if's mind. I feel very much like the moment you look at your pregnancy test and think what the heck have I done LOL! But any way the deed is done and we shall have lots of fun. Remind me of this on a cold icy winters day when i'm cleaning them out ha!
Right time for a look back at May still. How on earth are we this far behind it's mad?! I've literally just said to hubby that it's only a few days of July and how the hell are we about to start July! :-o This summer has been seriously rubbish in the South of the UK so far and I feel like I am still waiting for summer to begin ... But any way here goes ...
Monday 24th May:
Well this week is going to be somewhat scarce as I haven't really taken many pictures!
Tonight after school Sophie wanted to play a board game. We also have an extremely rare moment of all 4 of us playing! This never happens ... It was a days of the week game. You have to move backwards and forwards based on suggestions from a card such as: "Move to Tuesday of next week" - "move to yesterday" - "Move to 3 days ago". You then pick a piece from the days of the week wheel. Whoever makes their wheel first is the winner. I've forgotten who won LOL! Oh and yes Jessica is wearing a coat! She was naked and cold but wouldn't get dressed ... Kids aye!
I don't have anything from Tuesday so we move on to Wednesday 26th:
Well look at that it's cloudy again .. We can't get rid of cloud round here this year!
Well this weekend is going to be very exciting for me. Not only is it half term so the kiddies are off and no early mornings - yippee! - The kiddies are going up north to mother in laws house with hubby. Now whilst this seems minor news to some - or even expected to others ... It is the first time me and Sophie have been away from each other over night in almost 6 years! And only the second time in almost 9 years that I have been child free over night! I have lots of grand plans - think housework, gardening and even a bit of sunbathing as the weather is meant to start looking up. Yippee! So this week has also been spent frantically packing for the kiddos.
And i'm awake early. The make a nice early departure and leave around 10am. They should be there around 3pm with stops. However things were really rough on the road and they weren't there until 5:30pm I think it was! The longest journey ever. I felt sad and guilty for them. Such a long journey but also glad I wasn't there as i'm a bad car traveller on long trips!
To make the food car bag easier I pack them a lunchbox of snacks each.
The plan is to get all the veggies out this weekend. It's close enough to June and the weather has warmed so it's time! Just checking in on them before I take them down and all are doing well ...
