Proud Mummy Moment!!

I know I have mentioned it once or twice but Alex started doing Karate a few weeks before the summer holidays.. well he is really doing well 

Not only does he go to his Karate lesson on a Wednesday evening he also goes once a month to Gillingham to take part in a massive Martial Arts combat league  where they do unarmed proper combat fighting and also they do weapons fighting…….

the first time he went he came 2nd in weapons and 3rd in unarmed combat

the second time he went he came 2nd in unarmed and 1st in weapons 🙂

Last Sunday he came 2nd in both……… but the kid that beat him was a green belt and 14 😯

He was gutted with himself for only coming second in the combat league this time round.. he came off the mats and the first thing he said to Allan who took him was “Dont Say A Word” 😦

I get the feeling he is going to be more determined than anything to do better at the end of next month!

Plus He has done his gradings once a month..

we missed the grading the first time because we couldn’t make it so the 31st of July he did his first one instead

he passed his 9th KYU with ease and got his yellow belt white stripe

four weeks later on 28th August he passed his 8th KYU and got his Yellow belt

and last Sunday on 25th September He got his 8th KYU ADVANCED which is is Yellow Belt with a Black Stripe 🙂

Considering there are people who have been going for months and months and are still white belts Im so proud of him.. and he loves going.


I am Alive!

It’s been weeks since my last post.  Unfortunately this is because I’ve been ill , I guess there is no excuse, what can I blame before that, kids being off school, well so much has been going on I guess I Will catch up step by step,

But for the last 3 weeks yes I will blame being Ill and yes while I have had a moan I don’t think I have really let on how ill I have been , My breathing got so bad that I ended up in hospital on the nebuliser.. of course as usual it was the weekend when I was first take really bad..  Saturday to be exact. I had had a touch of a cold and cough for a few days but by Saturday afternoon I really couldn’t breath..  Even when I smoked and at the height of my asthma it was never this bad.. If I’m honest it scared the hell out of me.  Allan finally convinced me to call the doctor on call who told me to get straight up the hospital.  I got up there and was seen straight away but a really nice doctor who looked at my past history of chronic asthma, he asked what I thought had triggered it this time as i have been fairly well for the last 10 years.  I told him I didn’t think this was my asthma playing up  so he did a chest x-ray and then put me on the nebulizer for a while… his diagnosis was that I had acute bronchitis, he then told me he would be back in an hour or so… Anyway two hours later my breathing a lot better after being on the nebulizer another doctor comes.. basically he tells me that the reason my breathing was so bad was I was having a panic attack and that i had bronchitis but there was nothing he could give me as it was viral and to take some sudophed  for the cough and if I must to use my inhaler.  I got home but still felt rough.. Now I did have some antibiotics at home from a previous course ages ago i never finished so i took them… they lasted through until Wednesday as there was about thee or 4 days worth.. I started feeling better than by Thursday evening i felt rough again…   by Sunday I was worse than I was the previous week, again Allan is asking me to go to the hospital only this time i refused i figured i would hold out and see my doctor on Monday.. How I actually got through Sunday I dont know I really thought i was in major trouble at times as it was so hard to breath and i had a pain in my chest and neck..

I call the doctors on monday morning and they fit me in.. within two hours i was seen by one of the doctors, she examined me and decided i had a chronic chest infection and acute bronchitis. she gave me a mega course of antibiotics. three lots of inhalers and some prednisolone steroid pills, had to take 10 at a time along with the antibiotics.. i swear within 24 hours i was starting to feel a bit better… It’s now over a week and while I still feel like I have a chesty cough and get tired very quickly I can actually breath..  I’m getting there.

Moral of the story… don’t bother with the on call or med docs……. wait until you see your regular doctors practice they are ten times better…………


In the meantime I may try and fill in the gaps as and when so if you notice posts happening in the twilight zone of missing blogs you will know why!!

OMG They really do have their heads stuck up their arses……..

We received an Invite in the post today…

From Allans Sister…… for her 40th Birthday… whats up with that you ask… well… considering she is nothing special, not royalty or anything like that  her invite was  and get this..

Her Fab at 40 party… I mean other people say you are fab at 40… you certainly don’t consider yourself to be and she certainly isn’t….

Formal wear……. very formal…

Held in the castle no less…….

Come one  who the fuck has their own formal wear birthday party held in a castle oh I forgot Estelle does…  even his pompous  Mother who held her 65th birthday party at the castle at least didn’t have formal wear…..   Understandable as she was living right next to the castle at the time and working for them  but even then a bit over the top but that is his mother and sister all over.. Both have delusions of grandeur and think their shite dont stink

They probably think I am common as muck as I don’t have any airs and graces but at least I was brought up mixing with the royals and VIP’s  (more than those two) I have mixed with Prince Charles.. Princess Diana, Other royals……. socially … Two Presidents of the united states of America and yes even bowled at the white house with Amy Carter……..  My job at the British Embassy meant that I mixed socially and professionally with all the important people of the world… and yes I went to the functions… With the one exception of an official do for Prince Charles which was Semi Formal. Ie long evening dress  the rest of the time It was suits and cocktail dresses for the ladies…  yes that short little black dress came in handy.. actually I had quite a few of them… In fact for their private birthday parties and such fancy dress was very popular… yes among many fancy dress outfits I have been a bunny girl at one of the high ministers parties……

What I am trying to say is that even royalty and the vip’s I mixed with didn’t have the formal do’s like the one his sister has planned.

she really does think she is “It”  I have bitten my tongue for years when they have rabbited on about how important they think they are but this was the final straw so to speak.

Funny thing Is she recently added Allan as a friend on facebook..  and then trawled through his friends list and added amber and tammy… so the funny thing is now whenever I want to rant about them I can and they will see it directly with a little changing around of my privacy settings when setting a status just for them 🙂

hence my posting this on

I Cant Believe that one person could have such delusions of grandeur, that they have to throw themselves their own Fab @ 40 birthday party…. Formal wear, black tie and evening dress of course………. Venue in a Castle… Where else for madam muck would be suitable???
You would of thought with her head so far up her Arse she would of noticed by now that her shit does stink just like everyone else’s!! — with Allan Smedley at At Home in the Front Room.

The result was Allan getting a text from his mother asking had he seen my status and did I really hate them that much..

If Im honest I dont hate them, I just hate that they think they are so important………

needless to say he never replied…… and although the atmosphere was a tad cold when he went there they haven’t said a word about it

shame really as he was just in the mood to fly at them both… He did talk to Tim about it and just said.. I only said what he has been thinking for years…….

The man is finally growing some Balls!!!

I have come to the conclusion that the silly cow is gutted that they never used to have high school proms over here 🙂
because the dress she wore was really like a  huge teenage prom dress pmsl.

Come on if your going to do evening gown Avoid the meringue look ffs!!
