Summer of 2013

Officially can't believe that is the weekend over again and it is also very near the end of August - where has this year gone?

This Summer has been a busy one, we are recently back from a great holiday away in Ibiza - have been back a fortnight but it feels like months.  Typically.  

July saw my youngest turn 4, spending his birthday in  a sling from a harmless game of 'let's swing you round and round' thus resulting in an elbow dislocation, Daddy felt absolutely awful but thankfully no broken bones.   My eldest turns 7 next week and there is a Superhero party in the planning - apparently I am to dress up too, hmmm.  

I am starting to feel old.  I feel as if they are growing up to soon. Must say I feel a little broody, annoyingly enough.  When the kids went back to school this week, there seemed to be a surge of expectant mothers in the playground, who have obviously bloomed over the last 8 weeks.  Also, my best friend is due in October so i'm getting excited about her little arrival.  I hope these feelings shake soon!  

Well with fine weather and fine dining, wine drinking and general sloppiness, my exercise regime went completely out the window - I was so motivated during May/June and was working really hard to get into shape, however July/August was a complete washout.  So, 4 days ago, I pulled my shorts on, put my trainers back on my feet and said hello to the old treadmill once more.  The hardest part was definitely just starting.  I slowly feel like I am getting my stride back.  

Blog wise, I have been suffering with writers block badly of late.  I am in need of some inspiration, so if you would like me to review anything - have any thing you would like me to share then please leave your requests in the comment section below.  I have been thinking of starting a You Tube again but will have to think it through properly. 

On the upside, my blog had a little makeover which I am pleased with - do you like it? 

A Scottish Lass turned 1, in the same week I reached over 200,000 page views so a huge thank you to all of you for your support.  It means a lot. 

How has your summer been?

  4. Ah Laura - hope your little on is on the mend! If you feel old then there's no hope for me - my eldest has just become a teenager - really don't know where all the years have gone - it's scary - and I also feel a little broody now and again - even at my age! Take care xx

  8. I know how you feel about your kids growing up so fast. I feel the same way. :( My oldest is 12 years old and he is already as tall as me! I wish that I can turn back / slow down time.

    I've been getting writers blocks often lately.

    Hang in there Hun! Everything will get better.
