All go here

Yes, I have been absent for sooo long I feel I have forgotten how to write a real blog post, as opposed to a review which I know have been plentiful. The trouble is when things get really tough it is hard to 1) write about things that really shouldn’t be in the public domain and 2) I tend to retreat into my typical Cancerian shell and hide until I feel it is safe to come out again.Unfortunately it is going to be a while before that happens…

Anyway, whoever said having children was easy? Let me tell you, make the most of the little years, teenagers are wearing…they can be cruel and it hurts. Enough said. However, having started to watch The Inbetweeners I am learning not to take anything personally…it appears to be normal behaviour.

I had forgotten how tiring four year old’s are especially when they only just start having temper tantrums.

My mum is ill… she is being amazing though! 🙁

We have just moved, for the second time in eight months, I am shattered and beyond exhausted.

Finally, I am starting a business…literally this week, and opening a shop with a friend in the next three weeks. Glutton for punishment…probably, but it’s all very exciting too. I’ll keep you updated on our progress.

    Best of luck with your new business! Hope it all goes well! It’s definitely tiring running around after your little one. My Little one is 7 and has the most incredible temper tantrums when she doesn’t get her own way! Literally feels like my ears are going to fall off!

      Oh no, I think Girl’s do know how to get to us, I hope she grows out of it soon for you.

      Thank you, we hope to open next week…scary but exciting. 🙂

    Sorry things are not that smooth for you at the moment. You have hit the nail on the head with being a cancerian and hiding in your shell when things get tough. My sister is poorly and that side of my life I am just hiding in my shell and praying it will be all o.k but equally feeling guilty that the shell is the best place for me but not, for sure for my sister.

    Good luck with your shop, us cancerians also like a project too 🙂

    Take care xxx

      I’m sorry to hear about your sister, and the late reply, it’s hard to know what to do isn’t it, how to act…thinking of you and her and wishing her well.

      Thank you, I’d never thought about it before but yes I do like a project! 🙂 xx

    Arrgghhh! Once again, I hit “send” to soon.

    You have my sympathy on the whole teen thing. Little ones = small problems; big ones = bigger problems.

    And it’s hard NOT to take it personally!

      It is tiring isn’t it, never knowing if you’re saying or doing the right thing. Exams for two of them here soon, will add to a little more stress for them.
      Thank you again for the support. Xxx

    I, too, know about that Cancerian tendency to retreat when things are rough . You know I am keeping all of you in my thoughts (extra hugs about your mom). xo

    Sorry you’re having teenager problems. We have GCSEs in the next few weeks so trying to keep things calm.
    Good news about your shop x

      We have GCSE and A levels here…gulp! At least they’re sharing a room so can study together. It’s hard for them I think, so much pressure. Good luck to your child. Xx

    The very best of luck with the shop, that’s some achievement with everything else you have going on xx

      Thank you, exciting but scary but we believe in what we are doing and have had so much local support that fingers crossed it will be a success. 🙂 xxx

      Awww thank you. Shop is a clothes agency and gifts and accessories for the home. Hoping to open next week, it’s hard fitting it all in between school runs etc but we’ll get there eventually. 😉 xx
