Hey guys

I apologise it has been a long time since my last blog.

Well April was a busy month. Lots of course work, assignments and exams. It was a stressful time. But the end is near and that is what is driving me not to crack under the pressure!

Easter was lovely. The weather continued to be on its best behaviour for the most part and as a family we were able to enjoy the bank holiday weekend at the circus and funfair. I’ve never been too keen on circuses, as a child I didn’t like to see the animals performing, it made me sad to think of them not being able to roam freely in their natural habitats.

However, Zippos circus was a great treat. The action packed entertainment acts proved to be an enjoyable time for my sons, I too enjoyed it.

Speaking of action packed. We also managed to squeeze in to see WWE Smack down @ the 02 arena. OMG. Forget the kids…. I loooved it. Memories of Hulk Hogan, Ultimate Warrior and Papa Shango had me in awe and re-living my childhood. Smack Down provided us with all the showmanship and enjoyment of wrestling as well as the excitement of being filmed for television. I surprised myself at how much I enjoyed the evening; I haven’t cheered, booed or shouted so much in a long time, but being in such an electrifying atmosphere, you couldn’t help but get swept up in the jeering of the crowd. I must say the seats we had were amazing; three rows from front row.  I was actually really worried, as I initially left it too late to buy good tickets from Ticketmaster, so had to buy from a third party website. Although I paid more than a third over the original ticket price, the seats proved worth every penny.

I am looking forward to the next school break for the children (May half term). I will finally be done with university for the second year and will be able to fully enjoy time off with my little soldiers. Yay!

Until next time

Deuces. X

Assignment season

Hi guys,

So it’s been a while since my last blog. I hope all is well and you have been enjoying the beautiful weather.

Assignment season is still in effect, I will be happy when I have completed my last assignment and successfully submitted it. Only then will I have to find other things to grumble about lol.

Will all the super mums please stand up!

I have been making full use off the library services available at the university. Especially now that the libraries are open 24 hours due to the assignment and exam season. Unfortunately I have spent quite a few nights; long nights L typing, reading, eating, drinking and admittedly sleeping in the Avery Hill Library (don’t judge me lol). Like most, my deadlines have been back to back and the evenings and nights are the best suited times for me to study consistently. I don’t do very well with short blocks of studying interrupted by ‘mum’ callings or stopping to cook dinner. So I reserve evenings and nights for marathon block studying. It is not the ideal times for many, me included especially as it can sometimes leave me tired and irritable the next day (oooohhhh those dreaded early morning school runs)!!! But mums got to do what mums got to do.

On a brighter note the weather has been so nice of recent. The sun shining can do wonders for my mood as well as everyone else’s too. I did make a vital mistake and misjudged the sun shine for warmth and heat resulting in me catching a cold, that then turned into the flu L The symptoms were horrible and I felt awful but some much recouping time was spent with my boys at home watching films in bed and having soup as they too were unwell.

Until next time
