April has been a pretty good month all in all. We’ve moved! Thanks to the usual solicitor shenanigans (theirs, not ours) it was slightly delayed and we finally got into the new place on the 28th. It’s good to be … Continue reading April Review & May Goals
Unfortunately, March didn’t pan out quite as I expected, and I didn’t do very well against my goals this month. Work has been insane, and the pace of assignments has been pretty relentless (more or less one a month this … Continue reading March Review & April Goals
As ever, this month as passed in a daze, lots has happened! I’ve also been a bit neglectful of the blog, but sometimes life gets in the way.
So first the big news – we’ve found a new house and had an offer accepted! There’s still a way to go before completion, so I’m not counting my chickens, but things are looking good so far. We didn’t actually end up looking at that many (not actually that much out there!), but what we’ve found fits the bill, although it needs a bit of work.
January is finally over and the first signs of spring are finally in the air (or in the garden at least, even it if is a bit wet and miserable out there today). I am definitely ready for some lighter mornings and longer days!
I’m conscious that more than a week of January has already passed, but this post is thinking about my goals for the year as well as the month, so it’s taken some thinking through. Let me also say that this … Continue reading 2017 Goals and Plans
Liz Driver: End of year report 2016 Family Mixed. Unfortunately Mum has spent nearly half the year in and out of hospital which has been a big worry for everyone. We seem to be ending the year on a high … Continue reading 2016 – Year in Review
Snow is falling, all around me… Man, I love a Christmas classic, and Shakin’ Stevens is my all-time favourite. And now it’s the 1st December, I feel fully justified in breaking out The Best Christmas Album in the World – EVER once again.
It would be fair to say that October didn’t really go to plan. I knew it was going to be a busy month – there is a big project going on at work currently and my team were on holiday meaning I had their work to pick up. I had my college assignment to get stuck into, and that involves a lot of research and critiquing of papers. That’s without the usual challenge of just trying to fit it all in!
When the girls were little, I used to batch cook all the time for them, so I always had a few quick meals in the freezer that I could defrost at a moments’ notice. I’ve got a bit out of the habit recently. They both get fed at school Monday to Friday, and we eat as a family on a Sunday evening, so it’s only really Saturdays I have to worry about. That said, batch cooking is a great thing to do not just for the children, but so we have some quick meals on hand too!
I feel like we’re into Autumn proper now. 1st October and it’s grey, cold and wet 🙁 Let’s hope we have a few more warm days before winter kicks in!
September has been pretty good all in all, and pretty busy. It was back to school for our family in more ways than one this term! Daisy started in Year 2, which she has confirmed is harder work than year 1! She has started recorder lessons (the horror) and is enjoying being back at dance on a Saturday morning.
