Month: January 2016

5 ways I was woken up early over the holidays.

I like my sleep. The blokes children assure me that sleep is boring, and holidays are certainly *not* the time to be sleeping.

So – here are the ways I was informed I could not have a lie in over the holidays:

  1. Small children jumping on me. Ow.
  2. Small children whispering in the doorway about who is going to wake me up versus who is going to wake up Daddy.
  3. “I’m hungry!”
  4. Dustbin truck outside, throwing all the glass bottles in with a satisfying crash. At 6am.
  5. “Can we play with the ponies now?”

I need a holiday.

Happy New Year!

Yes, this is a day late. I’ve been busy.

Normal blogging schedule will be resuming! I hope all my readers enjoyed their holidays.

I have made no new years resolutions, mainly because I hate to set myself up to fail with some random achievable goal. That said, I will be getting back on my exercise wagon for the new years, and making more of an attempt to get out of the ‘I’m supposed to have quit smoking’ blip I had over the holidays.

The holidays have been rather busy, but I have picked up plenty of blog fodder for the forseeable future. Which is nice!

To finish up – happy new year, everyone! May 2016 be awesome. 🙂
