What a week!

20 Feb

,Busy, Busy, Busy….. That’s been pretty much the way of it at our house this week!

Kids are on half term and the trip away fell through so it’s been a little crazy. My hubby G decided to redecorate the living room. What a crazy decision given the fact the children are not at school. I’m not the one doing it but it is driving me crazy! The house is full of wet paint so me and the children have spent today in our bedrooms which i must add are also turned upside down. We went to ikea yesterday to order the children new beds! As you all may know already ? Ikea supplies all of it’s products flat packed so you have no problems transporting it. Yer right that’s so not the case with my family lol. G has just got a new van so this is why we decided on getting them instead of ordering online. well, THE BEDS DIDN’T FIT IN THE VAN!!!!! It was closing time and we were in a bit of a panic. Some kind passers by were great offering to help us. Looking at it now I can see the funny side. We had to try and lift some stuff on the roof but then there was the fact we had no rope so idea out the window. In the end G had to ask the guy if he could pay a delivery charge in order for them to deliver. The guy was kind to agree great given the fact that it had been closed the last ten minutes. But then again it was a bit high costing so it was worth them taking the job.

We also ordered our new bed today! This was from a pine store that is local to us. This meant we could have it delivered today! WHAT A BONUS. The kids beds are coming in the morning so there sleeping on the blow up air beds tonight. Good job we have them. I fault it was pretty much a waste of money when hubby brought them home a few weeks back. He got them half price but in my eyes it wasn’t a bargain when we had no use for them! Well i take that back! At the time his response was something of this kind would always come in handy. I must admit i kind of see his point. So our bed has just been assembled and I’m longing to jump on in it but not yet i cant! THE PLACE LOOKS A TIP! I really don’t think one room in the house don’t need sorting. I hate it when everything is everywhere due to it having  been  moved because the decorating. You kinda fell like your house has been taken over by paint pots, dust sheets and everything else that’s DIY related.

Little G seems to be getting bored. Big G his daddy ( they have the same name ) got hI’m a new wooden train track as we know today was going to be a busy day. He played with it but still become bored as he likes to play the game where he walks around with a pencil making train noises He needs the whole house to do this and it’s so not a opinion right now with the house the way it is with the wet paint and stuff. I really do wish he had started it Monday when they were back in school. Now his stressed’ I’m stressed and the children are bored.

So there you have it! my week in a in my world! I hope everyone else half term has been a lot less stressful then ours. I have learnt one important lesson on school breaks! ALWAYS BOOK YOUR HOLIDAYS EARLY!

NO BUTLINS FOR US.!

16 Feb

Yes you have heard correctly! There’s not going to be a trip to Butlins after all. Why? Because as you can guess given a late and spontaneous decision to go it was fully booked up:(

OK I really should off seen that one coming. I always seem to have these ideas that little bit to late. Never mind Mum will put on that thinking cap (the one that I have worn many a times) Think it will be a few day trips here and there. G has already helped by putting some input into where we should be taking him. You don’t really have to ask what those ideas were do you? Yes the trip my little man had planned in his head was a day centered around the speedy trains and big red buses! I must add his also wanting a trip on the tram something his never been on before. Is this a new obsessions due to come about??

Alice wants to go swimming. Great me in my swimming costurm’ that’s something i haven’t done for a bit (years) So it’s not as if there’s a problem with us not taking our trip after all. Alice and G seem fine with there new plans’ and it don’t look as if I’m going to have any spare time on me hands! But that’s what it’s all about really! We have our children and we put our whole heart and soul into giving them the best. The life we wish for them to have:) It’s not like my two want a trip to Disney land! One wants to swim while the other wants to go bus riding. Well if that’s what will make there half term super fab then that’s what we are doing! Not only will it keep the children busy it may turn out to be a bit of fun.

I STILL PLAN TO POST PICTURES!!! SO BE WARNED. IF YOU DON’T LIKE PUBLIC TRANSPORT THEN BEST TO STAY AWAY:) LOL

TO BE CONTINUED………………..

HALF TERM.

13 Feb

My god it’s that time again! It’s half term and us mummy’s and daddy’s will have to get our heads on and start thinking  what to do in the way of keeping them little monsters entertained. Half term comes around so fast’ it only seems like yesterday they were on Christmas break. My two seem to become so bored it’s then that we have problems as they always argue. Little man wants Alice to play seems to be a good thing as this used to never happen he would prefer to play alone. But and yes this is a big but! When they do play together it’s all on Giovanni’s terms. This is annoying for Alice as he tells her what she has to say,do and act in the game. It always seems to head towards Alice having to go on a bus or a train which as you can expect after playing this game 1000 times it becomes some what boring. The refusing in wanting to play seems to be what gets to G most causing him to often hit his sister

So unless i find something that’s going to keep them both on a high  i’m in  trouble. So here’s my plan! Butlins! A three or four day holiday at butlins. Me the children and they dad went a few years back and they seemed to really enjoy it even through at the time they were both sick and vomiting everywhere we went. So after speaking to hubby we have decided to check some prices out on the net and arrange a trip some time in the week:)

So if we can get Butlins for a good price then that’s us sorted for a few days of the half term. Februaryis never a great time for money as everybody knows:( Just having had Christmas and Alice’s birthday doesn’t help. There are some fantastic sites that let you know all the top events that are taking place in your area. I have often searched Google for free events for kids taking place in the half term. There seems to be alot of play groups that offering trips to the zoo, coast and other places. Sadly these never seem to be a option for us as G doesn’t like the idea of attending events and groups like those on offer. Alice seems to follow her brother on this on.

If anybody knows of some great places and ways to entertain the children this half term then why not share them with other parents that are a little stuck this half term.

Will let you all know if we go on our trip. And will post some pictures:)
