Stuff on a Sunday – New Job & Hugs

This week has absolutely flown by, and I spent most of it thinking we were a day ahead of ourselves! I worked a few extra shifts as we’re short staffed at work (the hotel) but more excitingly I got a new job! I’ll be managing the social media/outreach for two awesome brands and I’m so excited to get my teeth into it!  I interviewed on Wednesday and was really nervous, the last interview I had was in 2006 when I was thinking of leaving my pub job (got offered assistant manager…

Stuff on a Sunday – Jabs & Leon

The most testing time of the week was Thursday, always a shitty day anyway as I work 6.45-3pm whilst Sam does the preschool drop off and pick up and has Arlo at home in the middle. At 3 he brings the kids in to me at work and starts his shift and I head home with them. It’s not ideal but it means we don’t spend anything on extra childcare. Only this week it didn’t happen like that because of a meeting timed that meant one of us would have…

Stuff on a Sunday – i360, colds and windows

I’ve been a bit slack with the old Stuff on a Sunday posts but I am determined to do them weekly from now until the end of the year, although I can’t promise they’ll be thrilling as I plan to do some mega hibernating this winter! So here’s what we’ve been up to over the last couple of weeks… I spent a lovely morning with my friend Nick who moved to Australia a few years ago, he was over visiting friends and family for a few weeks and he made…

Stuff on a Sunday 60: A new routine

This week has felt really different, not only are we suddenly having to stick to a solid routine of preschool but Sam and I went back to work after annual leave at the end of the week too. On top of that Arlo had two settling sessions at his Childminders before starting to do a full day next week. I had to get used to doing all the boring things like cooking and cleaning again after a week in hotels. This is our new ‘normal’. It also feels like the…

Stuff on a Sunday 59 – Pizza and Me & Mine

The last time I did a Stuff on a Sunday post was about a month ago I reckon, and for some reason I’ve not had the time to write weekly updates. Well, I know the reason; lack of sleep and addiction to Stranger Things on Netflix. Anyway I thought I’d do a monthly round up post and our Me and Mine for August a few days early this month and kill two blog posts with one stone, as it were! This month has been busy without really achieving anything major if…

Stuff on a Sunday 58 – A shitty week

These last couple of weeks have been a bit crap, truth be told. After the kids recovered from chicken pox I came down with tonsillitis (of the ‘chronic’ kind whatever that may be according to my GP when I finally found time to go and see her!) but started with hot and cold flushes so extreme I thought I was getting the flu, then my glands became golfballs and I stopped being able to swallow anything. Did you know it’s contagious? I had no idea, but someone at work had…

This weeks ‘Stuff on a Sunday’ is sponsored by exhaustion, chocolate and rain. So poor Arlo has the chicken pox now, I thought he had miraculously escaped catching it from his sister but two days before the end of the maximum incubation period a little spot arrived on the side of his head, followed by a couple more. Of course it happened at the worst possible time as when we were just about to go away for a long weekend to see family and friends and go for a party…

Stuff on a Sunday 56 – Chicken Pox and a rant

So, what have we done for the last week? Not a great deal really as poor Athena woke up on Monday (her 3rd Birthday!) with Chicken Pox! It meant we spent most of the week at home or at the beach where we weren’t risking spreading it about any more than we already had at her birthday party the day before we knew she had it! She dealt with it very well, although she keeps telling me she ‘neeeeeeeds’ calpol! She loved spreading the foam all over herself and it…

It’s been a funny couple of weeks, they seem to have flown by although we’ve not done anything too exciting up till last weekend! A lovely sunny weekend two weeks ago saw us have a lovely family day out, Athena played at the splash pad, both kids in the park and then we had lunch together in the sun. We’ve all got a few more freckles and spent a wonderful day together. Sadly the next weekend was a bit different as we both ended up working on our days off…

I’ve been a bit crap at keeping up with my Sunday life updates but in all honesty there’s not been a great deal of excitement or even anything of note! I’m drowning under a never ending cycle of washing clothes, small people and sorting and trying to tidy the house. We moved somewhere bigger so that we’d feel less claustrophobic and cluttered but actually the stuff is just spread over a wider area now and still pisses me off! Operation de clutter starts now!

Well this one might be long, apologies in advance for waffling but grab a cuppa, or an Easter egg… Oh! Happy Easter if you celebrate it and happy long weekend if you don’t! What’s new with me? It feels like an absolute age since I turned my laptop on, in fact it has been almost a week as I kept meaning to get it out but the fact that we moved house and have a to-do list as long as both my arms plus one of Sam’s has kept me away…

Happy Mothers day, if you’re a mama! I am up in Norfolk having a little break. We’re staying with Sam’s mum seeing as he is gallivanting round Scotland doing ‘wild camping’ and snowboarding. Hopefully he’ll return in one piece!
