The week that was 365/11

I won’t bore you stiff with wedding photos but choose just a couple that I managed to snap that day which I’m really pleased with. Jay Mountford was on top form and you must check out her sneak peek she posted this week.

Saturday – I got married just in case you didn’t know, a fabulous day which i shall cherish FOREVER

Rosie and Tracey - Mother and daughter

My SIL and my niece Rosie who was my chief bridesmaid and has overtaken her mum in the heights stake! Rosie writes a fabulous blog at My Head and Me My second photo for Saturday is of me and my eldest daughter Megan isn’t she gorgeous?

Sunday – Mother’s Day, Paul and I awoke in our Emporer sized bed, tried out the ensuite jacuzzi with rainforest showers – it’s got to be done right? And head home where we had about 25 people for lunch! Luckily the family mucked in and produced a fab meal. We re-lived the previous day, laughed lots more and all went to bed very tired methinks.

Monday – I took my son Tommy with his partner Oana and their son Evan to Gatwick in a snow blizzard! and we calmed down a bit and tried to get a little bit back to normal

Here are the girls chilling out in front of the Tv

Tuesday – We woke to this! In March, whereas normally the snow brings gaiety and laughter I am fed up of it now, it seems to be dragging on far too long and it’s so cold.


We also took Gracey to Build a Bear at Bluewater and she made a colouful Easter bunny and played monsters with the box

Wednesday – I took Megan and Gracey to Gatwick at 5am! I was in bed VERY early that night exhausted

Thursday – Can you believe it, I found nits in one of the twins hair again so determined to exterminate every last one I doused all three of us in Hedrin which is really oily and took 4 washes to get out and even then wasn’t satisfactory. I’m sick to death of treating them only to find they come home from school AGAIN. So I had a good old rant on the Facebook school parents page and I hope the message reaches ALL. I’m going to write a post on nits as there’s a dreadful stigma attached to them which kind of pushes the problem underground whereas really we want to eliminate the LOT and be done.

Friday – I’m excited. I had a Google hangout with the BritMums and I’ll be helping out with the BiBs awards this year which means no you can’t vote for me but I wouldn’t have won anyway – there are far better blogs out there but they won’t get awarded without a nomination. So please head over to check out the rules and categories and get your badge up with which category you’d like to be shortlisted for the rest is easy, March 18th it’s Kick off and best of luck to you all

    Congrats!!!! I’d love to see wedding photos! Nits are no fun, there was a breakout last fall at daycare, fortunately, we didn’t have any come home with us, but I guess that is just what happens sometimes!
