I made a boo boo yesterday and all my talk of my challenge has landed me in hot water. Continue reading
I have so many hopes and dreams for K-A, for both girls but I can just see so much entrepreneurial potential in her that I know when the time comes the world is going to be her oyster. Continue reading
Tomorrow we’re off on a mini break, we’re totally excited and this time I can actually talk about it.
We’re heading to a place called the Lisnaskea Share Centre, a mini adventure holiday if you will. It’s a fantastic spot (from what I’ve heard) with more activities than you can actually fit into on holiday.
We’re camping (back to basics) so that’ll be interesting but, hopefully, not too wet and we’re staying on a four day break.
We have each of our activities planned out and the good thing is we don’t all have to do the same thing, we’ve each chosen what we want to do most. For me, that’s going to mean many laps of the pool followed by sauna, or could be the gym – either’s good.
Anyway, today’s going to be a bustle of getting the house sorted, cos I hate going away and leaving an untidy house, packing the cars, cos we have 2 now and just making sure we don’t forget anything because unless previous camping trips where we travelled a full 3 miles down the road, there’s no coming home for forgotten trivialities.
Lisnaskea Share Centre here we come!

They really are and I hope that they’re memories that both girls will take into their adult lives. This picture is just exactly what memories and summer holidays are made of!
I’m sure like many other parents up and down the country I have been dreading the onset of the summer holidays, after all – what in god’s name do you do to keep a child occupied every day for nine weeks? Continue reading
I get that in this P.C. world we live in that kids are encouraged to understand that taking part is much more important than winning but what happened in K-A’s sports day today really made my blood boil. Continue reading
I have been absent for a couple of weeks, but with good reason – I’ve been off on family holidays in Portugal! Continue reading
