Summer 2018 - Sorry its been to long

I have just spent the last hours reading through my first few blog posts and I am so glad I started this blog. For my self if not anything else. They capture the first few months of me becoming a mum to a larger family. When I look back now I struggle to remember the kids as babies? what were they like and even what they looked like. I sometimes really miss logging everything but really have used Instgram more so for that. I will give you a little update (not that your bothered reading this but I might click on it in the future and think what was i doing in the summer of 69 urm... i mean 2018).

Life is still rather busy as what it is with three children. We have had some rather large milestones in growing up across the board so I will mention each individually. The last few months have been a hard few months with behaviour and stress but we are ALL so glad its the summer holidays.


Asti has just finished year 6. We are all a bit relieved, to be honest. Ast was diagnosed with ADHD in April something we were all aware of and knew he needed more support. Sadly his school were completely the opposite and rather than putting coping strategies in place decided to put him in isolation. After a few incidents,s the school wouldn't even let him go to his leaver's party which was the final straw. I was in that office the next day to be told how the school hadn't failed my son, no he got fantastic SATS results. After a little while, Asti. They could not cope and rather than seek help just swept it under the carpet. Thankfully he moves on to a new school in September. I will be involved with the SENCO. So hopefully he can start to really enjoy school again and not feel so suppressed as he did in the other school.


Ami has had a good year at school. She has really tried and there was a stage where she was miles behind everyone else but has really attempted to catch up. I'm very proud of her. It's her 6th birthday at the weekend and shes almost feral. She's getting more and more excited each day. Tonight she was almost unbearable with endless questions. She wants to know everything and we even sometimes have to slyly turn the radio off if the news comes on otherwise we will get a million questions about what happened. She never misses a trick and is always on the go and on the ball. She always needs to know what we're doing next. Shes forever asking whats next, I am really hoping by the end of the holidays she can learn to chill out a little bit.

Son Son

Son Son is due to start school in September, seriously though how is my baby old enough for school. He is still in the nursery so that will be sad when he has his last day in September. He has been at the same nursery since he was 9months and has really loved going there. I have no issues with him going to school, lots of his friends are going and he is rather laid back. Son Son is really into football at the moment and has recently joined a football club that he loves. He is forever putting in a slide tackle which he gets told off about but he loves it.

Me and the Other Half

We are both in our jobs and have been there for a year. I am loving my job as a neonatal nurse it took a while but now I struggle on the adult wards and miss the babies. Its such an rewarding job I start a course at University in September not sure I am looking forward to all that studying again though. My husband is still enjoying his job and although struggles to get out of the self employed way and bring all your work home he is doing well. He now knows much more about digital media and is much more confidant in his role. Although life is busy we are often passing ships. He often comes through the door as I am leaving for work.


  1. so lovely to hear how you are all doing. Your kids are looking SO grown up now. Sorry to hear about the school difficulties - an all too familiar story but J thrived at secondary - completely different to the struggles he had at primary where they didn't help with his ASD. Have a wonderful summer xxx
