The other week my son Connor sat in the car and told us “I have eaten all my apple!”
My Mother said “Thats a good boy”
He replied all of it grandma the pips and all”
Mother being Mother says “oh they contain poison arsenic and that’s deadly ” (ever jolly)
To which Kieren said “oh no way Connors been poisoned by arse lick”
My mother looked disgusted, I was trying not to wet my pants with fits of laughter.
I have had a good week when it comes to lunches. I went to a little vegetarian place with my dear friend Katy on Monday. It was great they did a veg curry with Bombay potatoes. It was the potatoes that made my mind up. They did a brill pudding and afterwards I felt very full. It was fun and I always like lunch with Katy, she is very on my wave length the longer we can sit and the more food we can eat the better. I did have fun and would recommend you try there if you want to eat vegetarian in Leicester.
I had another lunch today with my lovely friend Vicki, she makes me laugh and we can be very immature but hey why not. We went Nuneaton and did shopping and then food. We had a chimi that is a Texan chilli and guacamole tortilla wrap, deep fried and it is lovely, followed by a piri piri chicken wrap, with lots of chips and a little salad to try to pretend we are healthy. I think I left the lettuce. But all in all an enjoyable afternoon!!
I do like to lunch and have a natter.
I have had to blog about this the kids have begged me to do so constantly. The story goes.. A few weeks ago I went into the kitchen to find our goldfish on its side and not breathing. The kids came in and seen him and they all burst out crying and begging me to save Mr Fish. I told them that he was going to heaven and that he would be in a nice big bowl with lots of toys . They were having none of it, their tiny faces were so sad. I went on the internet and found a forum which suggested that he go straight in a salt water solution and this may save him. I made the bowl of water as fast as I could as I was transferring him into it the kids said “what about the kiss of life?” I was not up for it but they begged and sobbed, so giving it all my motherly love. I did a little puff of air into its mouth and gave him a kiss bye. I placed him in the bowl and left him alone, 2 hours later I checked him, he was alive and swimming around. The kids say it was the salt bath, I think it was my kiss. I know it sounds grim kissing a cold slimy fish but I would like to say it’s not as bad as kissing your ex!!
I have been mega stressing all week at the prospect of Laceys school appeal. It was to be tomorrow morning at 9.30am. I had to arrive 15 minutes early which in itself had me in a tiss. I would have to get the kids up out of bed and ready for school on time, which in our house is rare, ha. I had to get Nicole sorted so she could get her bus to highschool then get Kieren and Connor sorted for primary school and Lacey and Kelsey to nursery. The boys are both sporting rather cool Mohicans and it is my job to gunk them into perfect peaks inbetween breakfast and teeth cleaning. I also for once wanted to look calm and collected not my usual dragged through a hedge backwards look. To be fair I was shitting myself that it was all going to go wrong I would get all flustered, Some ass would drain me and I would tell them to bollox, which I don’t think would have gone well. But I was given a little bit of grace when the phone rang and it was allocations saying Lacey had got a school place and I did not need to go to the appeal meeting, hooray!! I must say though I did still have a moan “what a daft idea leaving it untill this late to tell me” well I do like a moan, ha. I just have to mention Keelan as when I say all the kids names it feels so wrong he’s not on there. XXXXXXXX
It was my Kelseys 3rd birthday yesterday. She had a party on saturday and yes as it’s a british summer it pissed it down. It was a good job the party was local as I had to return home and get a bag of dry clothes for all my kids and get them changed just as I did so it rained again so I gave up and left them to it.
Kelsey was totally thrilled with her presents she had a princess bike with a seat on the back for her dolly and pom poms on the handle bars. She looked so grown up bless her. She got Jessie from Toy Story aswel, which she loves. There were tears this morning when she wasnt allowed to take it to nursery. I have had strict instructions from Kelsey to make sure Jessie is fed and watered and in the car seat when she finishes at 3pm. I have a brain like a sieve so I wrote it on my hand. Theres a few pictures of my Kelsey on her birthday, I do warn you not to be fooled by her cuteness she is a toad.
Happy Birthday Darling xxxxxxxx
With what is already a sad situation loosing Keelan and living without him. I had to do such a terrible duty yesterday as his mother I had to go and register his death. I have had to wait for the inquest into his death to close before I could obtain a death certificate.I knew it wasn’t going to be pleasant but it was so hard to actually write on paper his age at death, just 5 tiny weeks. It was overwhelming, I got hot and bothered and felt like I couldn’t breath. I felt like I was going to be sick. I looked at my friend Vicki who went with me and I know she knew I was taking it harder than I thought I would. It was reassuring just to see her face and her smile made me feel a little more safe. I know that sounds silly but I felt scared, I don’t know why or what of, but I did. For being there when I wanted to breakdown and cry like a child and giving me the strength to put pen to paper. I thank you. It meant more to me than I could ever say I love you Miss Miles. xx
I just have to say I do feel that supermarkets are using the self serve tills as a form of amusement. I remember you’ve been framed when they would set somebody up, I am sure that is what they are doing. I spent 10 minutes trying to by 8 items. The other tills were so busy I went to one and it was a joke. I was ID for a 15 dvd and a bottle of wine. I look old, I am old. I had 5 kids one of whom is at high school how could I be under age? Then 2 items wouldn’t scan, they till kept saying please place your items in the bagging area and I had. When it was time to pay it would not scan my tesco club card. The icing on the cake was when I left the store the alarms went off the assistant had laft the tags on the shorts. AAARRRGGHH!!
