We had a pretty chilled weekend enjoying time with family, friends and working on our garden inbetween the spurts of b*stard rain. The weather forecast was completely wrong and instead of sunshine we had rain and cold and more rain. But we soldiered on and made the most of it and actually got quite a bit done. Boom!
Tay had a few friends round after school on Friday to just ‘hang out MOM’ so I grabbed a sweetie pizza from Asda as a treat to claim some ‘Cool Mom’ points. It didn’t really work as Shanah snuck it away from them as best she could so all that was left to present to them by the ‘cool mom’ was a pile of mushed up banana sweets and a soggy jelly baby.
I don’t think I will ever get used to seeing boys shoes at the door. Tayla is nearly 13 and has a large circle of friends – boys and girls. On Friday it was a 2 boys and 2 girls hangout and there was lots of awkward teenage giggling and chest puffing going on. MY.NERVES.
On Saturday my friend persuaded me to join her at the gym for a Spin and Lift session. 20 mins power spinning and 20 mins lifting. It was INTENSE. My muscles are still screaming at me 2 days later, but I’ve lost nearly a stone just by changing my eating habits, drinking water (yuk) and doing exercise a couple of days a week. I also treated myself to an early birthday prezzie – the Breville Blend Active blender thing. I freaking love this gadget – chuck a load of fruit, bit of milk, bit of yoghurt and a squeeze of honey into the cup, press whizz and BAM, breakfast done. Much needed after cycling to what felt like up Mount Everest and back.
Shan’s been bugging me for 2 weeks to take her swimming with her friend. She’s had a really bad cold recently but seems to be much better so I decided to cave in and take them. Our local leisure centre does a big fun inflatable swim on Saturday afternoons with a giant blow-up slide in the pool, so the girls were in their total element. I sat on the side watching YouTube video’s and sporting this very sexy footwear.
On Sunday, my Dad treated us all to a yummy Sunday roast at a local pub and then came back to our place for a glass of vino and helped me put the vinyl letters on my pallet herb garden. He did a good job and insisted on his picture being put on Facebook with the caption “High guys, I’m back in business” I do love that bloke.
*Drugs Disclaimer* Weed is a joke sign.. those are actually Marigolds.
Inbetween the rain showers (b*stard weather) we painted our pallet benches for the decking – it’s all started to come together now and I’m so flipping excited about it.
Shan was clearly exhausted after all of these shenanigans and crashed out early for once. Miracle! She falls asleep every night with this little mask on and it melts my heart. She’ll kill me if she realises this is on the blog. HA. Lol.
That’s it for this weekend dudes – I’m off to work now.. Monday morning seems to creep up so fast on us these days. Luckily I love my job too so it’s not too much of a tragedy.
Have a great week!
