House Stuff

We have a fairly good sized house. 3 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, big garden…
But so little furniture! I have toddlers, you see. And toddlers like to climb on things. Toddlers like to draw on things. Toddlers like to think they are Tracey Emin and recreate her artwork in my lounge!  Yesterday I ordered myself a new side table and some bits to decorate our bathroom. I’m actually excited at the thought of getting furniture and decorating the house! I’ve lived here for 4 years and it’s all finally starting to feel like a home. I just need to hide the crayons!

Sleep Deprivation

When does that stop? At what point do we start getting a good night’s sleep?

The baby had me up in the night. It wasn’t until just after 3am that I finally got to go to sleep. This morning he has a raised temperature, so that’d explain his restlessness throughout the night. Calpol to the rescue!

I’m as grumpy af today! All I can think of is slipping under the duvet and getting some wonderful sleep. Husband is in bed (bastard) as he was on a night shift. I’m jealous!  I’m tempted to start banging about in the kitchen just to wake him up 😛

I can’t remember the last time I slept for a solid 8 hours. I wonder if I’ll ever sleep a solid 8 hours again…

Coffee! It’s time for more coffee!

Holiday! Celebrate!

If we took a holiday…

Back from a week away. It was so good to get away for a bit. We went to Butlins in Somerset, our second time there. Kids loved it!
Now we’re back home and I feel a little sad that it’s all back to reality. We’ve even looked into moving to Somerset as I just adore the place! I’ve been going there since I was little and can’t imagine not being there.

Keeping my fingers crossed we’ll find a house there. Our planned house move fell through and we were really disappointed. Maybe it was a sign that it wasn’t good enough for us.

I haven’t thought to write here lately. Having been kept busy with sorting out the house, being a mum and just generally busy with life I’ve neglected writing things down.

Today is my birthday. No fuss or celebrations. Just any other Sunday. I dislike birthdays. They’re really not my thing! I started hating them in my late teens. I felt there was nothing to really celebrate. So today I’ll do the housework, and pack a bag as we are going away for a few nights to Butlins. The kids deserve a treat.

Happy Sunday people!
