I’ve been reading this blooming leaflet all week making sure i got the boys passport applications right… yes i know the Post Office do a check and send service, but i am a tight bum and wanted to save myself £20!! Also i soon realised that i would need to send our marriage certificate with their applications as my passport is still in my maiden name (again i am a tight bum and refuse to buy another passport at full cost just to change my name) and the boys birth certificates have my married name on them… oi is nothing ever simple!!!
Ooh Er Misses… i finally watched 50 Shades of Grey. I only read the first book in the trilogy as wasn’t keen on how it was written and i thought ‘how the devil are they going to convey some of the scenes into a film?’ However, i thought Jamie Dornan playing Christian Grey and Dakota Johnson playing Anastasia Steele were the perfect people for the job, so well done Hollywood for picking them. I actually really enjoyed the film and thought it was very tastefully presented… I also thought Mr Grey was hot and got a little flush cheeked in parts but that may have been the Pinot Grigio i was drinking?
Damn you Summer giving us what felt like Wintery weather last week, to brighten my day because the Sun wasn’t going to do it i wore some bright orange nail varnish. This one was Orange Buzz by Rimmel, my favourite is still Coralicious by Rimmel but i’m going to save that for my holidays.
I can’t put Stereophonics again can I? Even though i have been blasting ‘I wanna get lost with you’ all week, so i am going to go with a classic. Every now and again, i need to get my steps up on my fitbit and have a burst of energy so i pop this tune on and dance with the boys in my kitchen. I have worked out i can up my steps by 1000 if i dance like a loon for the whole duration of the song!
One rainy day this week, whilst Fred was napping. Rowan and I made this paperbag monster puppet. It was a bargain of £1 in the local co-op and they give you everything you need (bar scissors) to make 2 paperbag puppets…. we are saving the other puppet for another rainy day so you’ll probably see it next week if UK weather has anything to go by!
We have booked our first ever family holiday… i feel terrible that Rowan is almost 4 and we have never been on a proper holiday yet. We are lucky to have family down in Cornwall and the in’laws live in Brixham so we have had our fair share of long weekends but this is a real holiday, in a foreign country! Ollie has been building up his business and this is the first chance we have had really to go away. I have posted off the boys passports today… hope there are no problems as we go on the 14th Sept! We are heading to Eurocamp in France, to say i am excited is beyond belief! When i told Rowan all about our holiday and that we will be going on a big boat etc, he said ‘WOW… we’re going on an aeroplane!’ Gulp, nope, no we’re not son! I think he understands now that we are going on the boat (or he’s going to be really disappointed) he keeps telling everyone that he is going on his holidays and that there is a TV on the boat. We are going overnight from Plymouth and he is so excited that there is a TV in our room, not sure how to break it to him that there is no TV in our accommodation at Eurocamp LOL! Just over 6 weeks until our holiday, i need to start working out more!!!
