Happy Birthday Daniel

You wont see this, You wont even know I am thinking about you, I know you hate me, Your Father made sure of that with all his Lies but I remember this day very well, and I do think of you every day.

I am not old enough to be the mother of a 26yr old…….. Oh shit wait… Yes I am.. where did the years go!

30 June 1985

I remember it like yesterday.


Personally I blame the Smedley Sperm!

Took both the boys to the dentist today for their 1st dentist check up.

Yeah ok Me Bad, its one of those things I kept meaning to get around to ok lol

Plus the fact that neither of them have had any problems.

Good news is that neither need any fillings both have lovely white teeth she was especially impressed with Ali’s

in fact she is amazed at how perfect their teeth are… (dont take after me ) mind you neither eat sweets as its only cakes they like and the sugar content is cooked in not as bad apparently.. and they drink sugar free drinks and always have an neither really has fizzy unless its Coke Zero  again no sugar…

bad news is Alex has to go back next Jan as he has a couple of teeth loose at the moment to have some sort of block brace put on its nothing to do with his teeth but because his lower jaw is not in the right place.. (have to say i never noticed) and because he is a mouth breather i need to take him to the doctors and get drops to clear his nose.. I did tell her today that he is bunged up because of hayfever but hey ho.. never heard of this block brace thingy but apparently its to bring the lower jaw forward. Still best its sorted now then when he gets older.

None of my others ever had that problem, Daniel was the worst with fillings but that’s all and he loved sweets and juice.

And then to top it off we got a letter back from the doc we took Ali to today (long story will try and blog about it sometime) and Ali’s problems. Basically they think he may be on the Autism Spectrum as he has some weird  idiosyncrasies and of course is totally unsociable. he now has to go to the speech and language department  before they paediatric see’s him again.

tell me something I don’t know.. I have said loads of times I have never known a kid like him.  so Between Alex, Ali and lets face it Tammy has problems… I blame the Smedley Sperm… its the common denominator 😆

Feelin Hot Hot Hot!!

Yesterday and today have been the hottest if not the most humid days of the year so far..

It made me laugh the other night.. after de-cluttering our room we found the tower fan that used to be in the boy’s room.

I plugged it in by the side of my bed and we used it two nights ago.. Last night I went to turn it on and it was missing…

Alex feeling hot had gone into our room and nicked the fan lol it was right next to his bunk bed.. oh well.

Today I went and bought another oscillating fan it was only £10 but its a good one on a stand…

Yes I know we have one or even more fans up in the attic but god knows where… give me a break the bedroom is relativity clutter free

the spare room and the attic is still packed with junk…

Looking forward to going to bed with a cool breeze tonight..

Sometime’s a song just grows on you.

When I first heard this my immediate thought was not my scene. But you know when you hear something over and over again and start listening to the lyrics and well they actually have a meaning..

well this song has grown on my, ok it’s not what I go for musically but the lyrics are so profound

Someone Like You lyrics by Adele

I heard that your settled down.

That you found a girl and your married now.

I heard that your dreams came true.

Guess she gave you things I didn’t give to you.

Old friend, why are you so shy?

It ain’t like you to hold back or hide from the lie.

I hate to turn up out of the blue uninvited,

But I couldn’t stay away, I couldn’t fight it.

I hoped you’d see my face & that you’d be reminded,

That for me, it isn’t over.

Nevermind, I’ll find someone like you.

I wish nothing but the best for you too.

Don’t forget me, I beg, I remember you said:

‘Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead’

Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead, yeah.

You’d know how the time flies.

Only yesterday was the time of our lives.

We were born and raised in a summery haze.

Bound by the surprise of our glory days.

I hate to turn up out of the blue uninvited,

But I couldn’t stay away, I couldn’t fight it.

I hoped you’d see my face & that you’d be reminded,

That for me, it isn’t over yet.

Nevermind, I’ll find someone like you.

I wish nothing but the best for you too.

Don’t forget me, I beg, I remember you said:

‘Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead’, yay.

Nothing compares, no worries or cares.

Regret’s and mistakes they’re memories made.

Who would have known how bittersweet this would taste?

Nevermind, I’ll find someone like you.

I wish nothing but the best for you too.

Don’t forget me, I beg, I remembered you said:

‘Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead’

Nevermind, I’ll find someone like you.

I wish nothing but the best for you too.

Don’t forget me, I beg, I remembered you said:

‘Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead’

Sometimes it lasts in love but sometimes it hurts instead, yeah.

The De-clutter has started in ernest…………The House has hit tilt… we can fit no more in…….

We Have a void in the room 😦

I have Been Having a Major clear out in my/our bedroom and Im being really ruthless It feels really strange not having a cotbed in my room for the first time since we moved into the house over 7 years ago,

Which sounds quite bad when you think that Ali went into his own bed more than a couple of years ago 😕

Allan as usual had filled it full of stuff and I have finally started to have a good sort out, It took me hours before I could even get the cot empty. It had been used as a dumping ground for everything. in fact our whole bedroom had become a dumping ground.. he would bring bags of clothes etc home from him mothers and they would be put there.. bearing in mind none of it would fit lol

anyway I cleared the cot/bed and dismantled it… No more cot in our room probably ever again 😦 unless we ever have grandchildren stay over but im not holding my breath there.

So far I have got … Wait for it 

over 10 bags of stuff to take up the dump..At the moment Im just putting it all out the front until Allan can bring the trailer home on Saturday and do god knows how many tip runs.. Thats the throw away part. Then the rest

I’m  giving away to the facebook FREEBIES – Sittingbourne and Sheppey… plus im freegling and I think I will have enough bits to go on for ages lol And Finally Im putting away… In Wardrobes… Ok I confess one is full of junk to be sorted.. but I will get round to that… Maybe At the Weekend.

So far I have cleared the cot out.. and cleared the floor area..  I will tackle on top of the wardrobes in the week. I may start on the back room tomorrow It all depends if I get the chance as its shopping and the boys have a sponsored walk at the school at 2pm

I am determined now to work my way though this house…… room by room

First My room … Then the spare room…. Then Im going to de-clutter the front room and get things where they should be… then its a tidy up the boys room… and then finally the attic… you think my bedroom junk is bad wait until I get round to the attic……….:(

Im starting to ache all over but i think its where i have been busy clearing out..

Owie! Alex has a Boo Boo! :-(


Jo comes round  Her Landrover is finally fixed and she can go up to west street garage and collect it we are just having a coffee  before we go and the phone rings.. withheld… I am not one usually to answer withheld calls 😕 so I gingerly answer and yes as you have guessed it was the school…

Alex has had a mishap in the playground and has a very nasty graze on his arm, They have cleaned it up as much as possible but could I come up and see what I think,  So Jo and I get in the car and go up there… we get taken to Alex who is standing there with loads of dressings over his elbow.. and the blood is seeping through.. oh crap I think Is this going to be a hospital job for stitches?

Anyway they lift the dressing and its not that bad really, I mean its not like it needs stitches or anything, Yes a graze… Life threatening hardly!

Did they really need to call me up to go up the school just after Lunchtime  with only an hour and a half to go until home time, to actually go and see it? What happened to the good old days when one of the playtime assistants took injured kid with a graze smothered it in TCP or that violet stuff or Dettol that stung like a mother, stuffed a plaster on it and told you to piss off out and play again lol

According to Alex some little yr 1 scroat pushed him over but of course he was totally innocent and had done nothing first 😕 he has grazed the top of his leg on that side as well and we just found another one on his hand that he hadn’t …noticed before haha.. oh well he will live..*can you tell im not one of these paranoid mothers full of sympathy* Actually  considering he used to be the biggest wuss going he is fine he was more impressed that he got to go home from school early. 
So we get in the car.. we go with Jo and collect her Landrover and then get home, I pop Alex in the bath to give it a really good clean out with some savlon in the water.  Jo goes up the school to collect Ali and Adam,
When Alex gets out the bath I dry it carefully and put a clean dressing on..  
It’s looking a lot better… Im just wondering how he is going to get on at Karate tomorrow 😕

Me Bad: I never find time to update ..

So here we go..

News Flash on the “grow some man” posting lol

 We now have a Magimix Food Processor… Ha Ha.. I got it from a freebie group off a lady I had given loads of bits to and was talking to her about baking and had mentioned I had broken mine and she had an old one in the back of her cupboard.. so  He has his wish… we Have a Magimix… his disappointment   its a 1980’s one but you know what.,. it works fine so Im a happy bunny haha

Alex has started Karate Lessons. To be honest he needs the discipline and the exercise and I have to admit there is something quite sexy about a man in a martial arts uniform and his instructor is no exception 😉 behave Ann you are old enough to be his mother….   Anyway the first lesson was going great and I could see Alex enjoying it even if he is a little awkward at time when it came to some of the moves.  but I have to say that Sensei Matt has got to be one of the most bravest men going… I mean who in their right mind arms a 7yr old with nunchucks  lol there was alex swinging them around and bop he knocked himself straight on the head. and Sensei came over to him  nunchucks flying everywhere from alex and the rest of the class to show him how to use them.. and you think that is bad.. last week he gave them a sword… Either a very brave man or very stupid man.

Any way we have now got his uniform and have signed our life away to the £40 a month for his lessons every wednesday 6pm to 8.15pm  and he can also go to any other lesson around they do.. but that would mean driving him all over the whole of kent.. maybe not.


My kitchen is done… I have my new cooker.. I am a very happy bunny… Now to declutter the house room by room…

Have I mentioned that we moved into this house in March 2004  well yes we started from nothing but the whole house is full of clutter..

when we moved in we bought some plastic curtain rails  not very good ones and the girls managed to snap not only the one in their room but the one on the top landing and our bedroom within a year.. from then on their room had a bamboo kind of blind.. cheap thing.. our room we had some curtains cut to fit inside the window frame and held up with netwire I kid you not  .. boys room had a new one , A blue wooden pole we put up when we decorated their room last year,  but Adam broke it in half when he came round to play about a week after it went up and it never got mended then the bits were lost. ..

Well it has only taken him 6 years to get round to it but we finally have some curtain poles and proper curtains put up in our bedroom. oh and on top of the landing. in the colour i want him to decorate so it may get him in gear to do that.. and he has finally replaced the broken pole in the boys room 🙂 GO ALLAN!!

Hence the incentive now to tidy up and really declutter all those clothes and everything in our room and the back spare room.
