That was brilliant!

So I just got back from a night out. Been a long while since I been out on my own. Hair down and a few shots later and I have danced my legs off!

So Butlins was interesting if somewhat over rated and expensive, if I hadn't of already booked to go again I wouldn't have. I am not a fan, even the kids were saying they missed the caravan holidays. Guess where we will go next year!

I wrote a letter of complaint to the dealers who sold me my car. I am awaiting a reply.. and the water builds up!

So right now I have my tea.. and my eyes are telling me its time to go sleeps.. imma finish my teas first!

On that note!

I guess you do "hate" me

It's funny the things you notice. Like I noticed that a certain someone unfriended the last "connection" I think we had. I think it is because he has "met" someone new and added her.. just thought it was kinda strange that he took me off but not his "other" ex.. though he did delete all comments on his page which made me chuckle!

I noticed that it's been a while since I have done anything constructive.. I been working me little socks off and not had time to do much anything else. Still I got a break with the kids coming up and then I got a couple of outings I am going on.. so I guess my downtime is coming up.

So update..

My mother looks like she has finally decided to go it alone. Long story short looks like she will be looking for a new house guest in the immediate future.

Son number one got a promotion and now complains that he is at work more often then not..he has to work that one out for himself.. I cant keep running round for him!

Son number four is currently working late shifts and not getting in till at least one am. He says he is enjoying himself which I suppose is something.

Daughter has taken up crafting. She is currently helping out a friend at a handmade jewellery store. Good way for her to make pennies I guess and get some work experience.

Son number five is trying to make himself a car washing business for the summer, just neighbours cars.. but its a start I guess!

That just leaves son numbers two and three.. well they off doing their own things..When the want something I see them.. other than that I get a phone call if I am lucky! They growing I guess.. have to wait till they mature some.

And me? I've planned my cruise. I have put some money down for it.. it is definitely going to happen. I will finish my car payments then I am off. And after that.. I am going to get an "RV" and start touring around!  Life Goals!

Life here I come

Will be August in two days time.  I'm glad that these couple of months went past pretty quickly.
So I been keeping busy, and with life and work I must admit I have been rather lost in time. I am looking forward to the break that I have got coming up. Taking the kids away again, just to a local beach for a week.
I been planning on what I want to do. I still want to take the cruise I have always said I am going to. But I have also decided that I am going to buy a holiday home and take off, firstly around Britain, and then maybe Europe and eventually travel America. I have still to visit Disneyland. I have visited the one in Paris, but I want to "do the proper one"  I smile at this thought.

Four years left on my car payments, which fits in nicely with planning the cruise. My friend who will be coming with me recommends we do it for my 50th which is five years away now. Time really has flown by.

Currently fixing up the house.. this seems to be a never ending thing.. finish one room.. start another.. then start all over again! Enlisted the help of my sons friends so hopefully it will go quickly.. if somewhat nosily!

Still have three living at home. The three who live out still seem too come back a lot though.. had a barbecue the other day, was very busy and very noisy but was lovely. I don't think I will ever really be alone.

Think my life goals are keeping me busy. Onwards!

So often a DJ will shout this out when he thinks he is playing a good song in the night club.. Had me thinking on the way home the other night...what if we could shout that out and we could rewind our lives?!

What would you change, work out or work on? I know we all have something but was interesting asking myself to rewind.. How far back? Would I really want to relive past hurts, or would they turn out to be something different? Isn't that de je vu?

I read a news story that explained a wife made her husband sleep on the sofa after an argument, to wake up the next morning.. he was dead. Would she want to rewind? Because now she is with his brother... Or the places that are being war torn.. do they want to do that all over again..

Choices are exactly that.. but it would be interesting if we could do a ground hog day!

It's July!

So we went away, it was beautiful! We had glorious sunshine all the time we were there and it was a really nice atmosphere. I would go again. My worries about my son not liking the plane were somewhat realised. By the end of the flight he was wanting to get off. I made sure that he was asleep for the journey home. When we came home however the bad news started! My car got smashed up, and though it's all fixed now I have yet to find out who did it.
Life is plodding along at the moment. I am trying to book a holiday for us again, only this time in Butlin's for the summer.
I took the children to Southend and got burnt to a crisp! They enjoyed themselves though.
So that's the update for now.. it's sunday morning and I got to run!

Have a good one xx

Wow June already

So another month is upon us.

Took the kids to Spain. Must admit it was a good time we had. I was anxious about my son flying, and though he was brave, he would not have been able to take a long flight. After two and half hours he was more than ready too get off the plane. I came back from holiday feeling relaxed. Though I think I should have stayed out there! Since I have come home it has been nothing but bad news. My car got smashed up, a close friend has died, some kid that my kids know through school decided to commit suicide (he was 15).. the list goes on. But hey tomorrow is another day right?

So today I am off to get my car. The poor thing has been in and out the garage more times than I care to mention.. and I have yet to do any damage myself! But as my next door neighbour pointed out, at least no one has been hurt and cars can be a financial check. Oh insurance comes up this month and I looked around for a cheaper quote.. my company were not happy but did not match the one I was given.. how lame!

So we are in the middle now of the exams.. my two boys are both revising.. actually together!  Was funny they were both dancing and singing in their bedrooms last night.. guess they got to let off steam somehow!

Things in general are muddling along at a nice pace for now. Son #4 is enjoying his job.. he actually goes without any prompting from me! Son#5 has a weekend job.. hes "saving" for what I dunno.. but hey at least he is on the right track.. I am planning another getaway.. family holiday to beach in summer holidays.. then I am not sure time will tell!

Well that's stuffs for now.. Hope you having fun!

Quick update

It would be nice... in fact it would be amazing to be with someone. Especially since I have this trip coming up to Barcelona. Would be nice to cuddle up to someone on the sandy shore. But I resigned myself to the fact I am probably going too stay single, a choice of my own doing.

As my children are getting older and becoming more independent, I look at my own future and wonder where to next. The world is my oyster as they say!  I don't want to end up like my mother. Disabled, feeling alone in the world and unable to be as active as she would like. I still have a cruise planned for myself. My friend and I were discussing some places which we would like to visit. Watch out world! I am thinking that I want to get a camper van as well at some point.. travel around this island and see some more of it.. The need to keep busy is very real!
