Where has August gone??? Seriously I don’t feel like my feet have touched the ground this month… there has been so much going on… lots of packing and un-packing… and the rest of the year is going to be busy busy busy too!!!

Ok… so the boys broke up from school back in July… they went away for a week with HisLordShips mum, nana, sister and niece… they were home for a week or so before they left again, this time with HisLordShip for 10 days… yes… I stayed home as I had some card orders to do Winking smile and to be honest as much as I love them all to bits I was really in need of some ‘ME’ time… I really really enjoyed the peace and quiet, I got so much done!!! I don’t know about you but I just can’t seem to get anything done when they are all around as I feel guilty for not spending the time with them, not that we don’t do things as a family… but you know what I mean???

They came home from Holiday… I was greeted with a humungous pile of washing… which I am still working my way through might I add!!! We had a few days of being under one roof then because HisLordShip & I were going to Wales for a couple of days the boys went to stay with Grandparents again… so yet more packing of clothes, well what was washed anyway… LOL
Wales… it was a special trip to meet HisLordShips online friend from Holland… another World Of Warcraft friend who he’d chatted to for the last 5 nearly 6yrs… we had a lovely time despite me freezing to bits in the tent… I brought home a head cold Sad smile… I'm surprised I still have a nose attached as it was that cold!!! As for me camping again… ohhhh nooo… that will be a boys activity… I’ll stick to hotels thank-you very much Winking smile

Boys came home for just one night…one night!!!… before I had to pack them up yet again for a 4 night 5 day stay at the Grandparents caravan… they are due home on Tuesday, but how long they will be home well that is another matter entirely.

August also means new Uniform time… I’ve had to buy most of it without them being on hand to see if it fits… so when they do come home they will be trying it all on… well except the shoes that I still need to buy!!!

  • 10 Short-Sleeved Shirts
  • 10 Pairs of Trousers
