This past fortnight has been a funny old mixture. Ranging from the normal everyday activities such as work, school and clubs. To the pure excitement of school trips, pancakes and secondary school decisions.


At 12.10am on Wednesday morning I read two words ‘Place Offered’. Yes the 1st March was High School decision day. And even though I was 99.9% sure that Katie would be allocated a place at her brother’s school, it was still nice to get the confirmation. I was a mixture of nerves and excitement logging onto the website, not helped by the fact I had to reset my password at midnight. If you were also waiting for the decision on Wednesday, I really hope you got what you wanted.


Secondary School DecisionWatched

A school hall full of excited children. No sooner had I told Katie the good news about Secondary School, she was off on a school residential for 3 days. She has gone to Conwy in North Wales where she will abseil, raft build, zip wire and canoe down the Menai Straights. I can certainly say that the house has been A LOT quieter and tidier without her.


Absolutely nothing of interest. I can’t even post a beautifully creative World Book Day outfit, as our school is celebrating it next week. Nor gorgeous looking fluffy pancakes as my stepdad was on pancake duty. So here is a picture of my cheeseboard from when we went out for dinner the other night. Well I guess somebody ‘made’ it.


Eating out - The White Lion Cheshire


The swirling winds and torrential rain of Storm Doris which caused damage to our roof.  Not very ‘little loves’ but at least we still have a roof over our heads, unlike some people. I know of 2 houses where the roofs had completely blown off. So I am thanking my lucky stars we only had minor damage which has now been fixed.


When you wander into Sainsburys for nutella for Pancake Day, and come out with a new top. And how did I not realise you can order clothes online from Sainsburys now. Being a ‘curvy lady’ I tend to stay clear of stripes. But I love this top, especially the sleeve detail which seems to be everywhere at the moment.

And lastly

No doubt my little lady will be exhausted when she comes home from her trip today, and I can’t wait to give her the biggest hug EVER. Have a great week x
