Blog Back on Track………For Now!!

The thing is, from my birthday right up until our Wedding Anniversary, things always seem to go the same way – 5 weeks of complete and utter madness. This year is clearly proving to be no different.(Hence no blog!) What with 8 family birthdays within the space of 16 days (guess where my wage has gone this month!) the usual chaos for the last few weeks of the school year, rugby, cycling and the more mundane tasks such as the housezzzzzzzzzzzzzwork, there is very little spare time. No wonder I’m always ready for the ‘big holidays’, not that I take things any easier then but you get the idea.

Just to add to the fun, Jack has broken his ankle -joy. Poor kid, he went over on it during a rugby game and we thought it was just a sprain. It was only the fact that he looked so unwell that made me take him to A&E (I knew that pediatric 1st aid would come in useful one day -good job I listened to it all!!) So now he’s been potted for a week and is back at the hospital on Tuesday. Great for a kid who loves sitting still -unfortunately he doesn’t. God knows what they’re going to make of his grass stained pot when he goes back. Thank god hubby is taking him on Tuesday – the woman who potted it was a right miserable cow. Don’t think she’ll be too impressed with the state of it -maybe if he tells her he can still kick for goal with one leg………..maybe not!!!

Just to add even more fun to the fun, school deemed Jack a health and safety risk and he wasn’t allowed back until a care plan was in place -that took them until Wednesday, the world’s gone mad!!!

Had a lovely weekend in the sun

Anyone got any top tips for keeping an active teenager still

Bring it on



New Knee Needed…………………….

Well I won’t be pedalling on Mavis again anytime soon – give me trusty Boris anyday (well at least until I get my new bike) Who would have thought that a nearly scrapped bike would be so much better than a bike I bought less than a year ago from Halfords. Don’t get me wrong, I know the dodgy knee situation didn’t help the pedalling but compared to Boris it was bloody hard work. Still biking’s the only option I’ve got at the moment as the dodgy knee is making car driving impossible.

Yep, the pain continues, by the time I got home today I was seriously considering a trip to A & E, but then other things got in the way, cooking, cleaning. Well anything really to avoid somebody uttering the words – no running. Sounds daft  and they might not even say it, I’m probably worrying over nothing. But I don’t do resting and I’ve already rested two whole days-sort of. Dancing ‘under the sea’ is going to fab tomorrow with a crock knee………….

5 slow miles done

Borrowing hubby’s bike tomorrow

Bring it on
