I’m Back with a vengance……… Well when I get a chance to get on the pc.

Many apologies , As well as having major internet problems so I could only connect with my phone for ages and my phone hated WordPress :/

I also now have the problem of two kids getting on my pc constantly so the only chance I get to go online is around midnight when I am ready to collapse at the end of the day.

And I had to reclaim my blog……. I couldn’t log in at all, trying to explain that I have been doing this blog for years and could tell them what was in nearly every post… reclaiming a blog from WordPress is not easy…  It kept telling me my email address was no longer active………  Buttttttttttttttttttttttttttttttt…..  It works fine….

Anyway I am back after a fashion I do confess time is limited as it is the summer break for the kids……..

So what’s been happening……
Where do I start………. We have been away to camp with the scout group…………. (pics below)
The one who shall not be named but was always talking bollocks and has the most obnoxious non disciplined child going has now finally moved and life is so much quieter..

Amber’s Boyfriend…….. A lovely lad NOT… had a row with her and started off shouting at us to get out and threw a handful of stones at our front room window causing loads of cracks and chips,  so big window needs replacing.  he then smashed the back windscreen on my car…… the back side window… kicked the side in all down the driver’s side and jumped up and down on my bonnet..   he then threw a stone (well actually it was a concrete ornament from the garden across the road from us)  through the back window of the landrover…… 

So  in a nutshell
We have been out and about, 
We all went to the great adventure scout camp out………  🙂
My name is Falcon when I help out at the scouts as an occasional helper.
We also collect cardboard and newspapers every Tuesday and Wednesday on behalf of the scouts…… this takes us usually from when we drop the boys at school in the morning until its time to go and collected.. them… on average we are collecting,. flat packing etc stacking in van  and then unpacking and taking to the recycle point and putting it all in a designated skip for cardboard… usually we get about 3/4 of a tonne  so hard work really..

Alex and the school team reached the Finals in the Swale Schools Cricket tournament, It was a long day for him but he did fantastic and is now the proud owner of a lovely silver medal,

I did a sugar craft course and made a few bits……..  I have a wedding cake to make so wanted to be able to do some bits for it.. 

we spent 6 hours stuck in traffic due to very poor management, to get to the Manston Airshow I was not a happy bunny, being stuck for 6 hours not even moving.. so was a 7 hour trip altogether.,  with a chatty 9 yr old… and Autistic 7 yr old  who doesnt do waiting or queuing, A diabetic disabled pensioner and a stressed partner was not good..  thankfully I had packed a picnic for the day so that was eaten before we even got there….    when we did the first port of call was of course the toilets…..  we had missed the majority of the show and the boys just did some water zorbing before we left..  to go home again… time to get home 3/4 hour……..   demand for refund of ticket in the post…
We have been to a few fun days where the boys made smoothies with  a bike and  built-in blender ,
We have had sports day where again Alex won a medal for coming second..  He joined the cricket club and athletics club after school so loves all this kind of stuff.
We Took Ali to wormshill and bredgar railway for a birthday treat.  again we go every year for his birthday and he loves going..

After the scout camp out where they had bike riding activities and of course Alex couldn’t do it because he didn’t know how to ride a bike.. (Yes I know i am a bad mummy but I dont let the boys play out so he never had a chance to really ride a bike ) 

So Anyway………….. We took Alex to the park to teach him how to ride his bike… it took him about 4 mins and that was it he was off riding round the park,  so a trip to halfords later and he has a shiny new bike 🙂 we had promised the boys when they could ride a bike properly we would buy a brand new one …   I knew We never should have promised that one lol
we have now put stabilisers on the smaller bike we had that Alex learnt on  for Ali.We had to order some special ones to fit the size of the wheel and of course take the weight of a larger child but sadly his lack of co-ordination and visual problems have made it rather hard for him :/ but we will keep trying… Plan B is if he can’t learn to ride a bike get him a proper scooter.  not the micro one like he has but a good one with pneumatic tyres and proper brakes…..  we will see how he goes.

So in a nutshell that is about it…
Hopefully I have made sure that my blog will stay safe from now on and I will be able to log in…,  Our internet access will be ok after a replacement of three faulty modems…….  and my kids don’t spend every second that we are indoors on the computer……. 

I will catch up on everything and I’m really sorry to the lovely Jodi I have read your books and thought they were fantastic… and will get the reviews written asap 🙂
So until the next time………………………..
Here is a little collection of pics……

 

 

It’s raining

While I have no objection to rain  I do wish that mother nature would take pity on us when It comes to collecting children from school.
  I swear some day’s it rains from 3.10pm until 3.30pm just long enough to soak me through completely,  then you have days like today when it is persistently raining or other wise known as  pissing down for short.

One the plus side I’m glad I bought a new coat and it was one of these all-weather hiking 3 in 1 coats so at least my top half stays dry.
I am of course sitting in the car waiting for time to pass in one of the side roads by the school watching and listening to the rain pour down on the car and regretting the fact that I have just had a can of tango orange and before that a coffee for obvious reasons and of course the spot where I am parked for some reason means I have little or no signal so by the time you read this I will be home in the dry and the boys will be no doubt tucked up in bed

What Else Could Possibly Go Wrong?!!???

 

Total bad luck so far…

Rear tail light smashed… Allan backs out of our driveway into a parked truck behind

Allan made redundant 😯
Hence the reason I don’t get to update this blog as often as I would like and don’t get to spend as much time on the pc, although this does have a plus side as he doesn’t have to see the mother in law from hell all the time. 😈

Smashed rear screen on my car Just what I needed on the last day of school, Thank God for insurance although it still cost us £75 😡

Two panes of glass broken on the green house and the annoying thing is I could see this going to happen as we were standing on the patio when the dog saw the cat on the fence on that side fo the garden. the cat jumped onto the green house roof

(dog chasing cat in garden and jumped up at it.. thankfully dog ok and the cat got away) ok it was only £5 to replace the glass and the dog only nicked himself so a touch of germoline cured all 🙄

Then we had an incident with the pc, and phones ! Both boys were throwing the cushions around in the front room and bashing each other with them (Away from everything I must add) When Allan decided to be a kill joy and told them to put them back on the sofa.. At which point Alex threw the cushion it hit the sofa, bounced off and hit a coffee cup on the side table all over the pc which had the htc desire and cordless house phones both on charge on top of it…. a very quick grab of the phone’s and into my terry dressing gown to wipe it, and turn the pc off and get that all out and stripped and dried out for 24 hours.

(thankfully all seemed to be ok and are working fine after a lot of drying out and rice but could potentially have been a well over a £1000, pillow-fight  😳 )

Then the next day the boys were messing around upstairs and Ali’s glasses somehow got broken and i mean broken the arm snapped right off, now bearing in mind his poxy frames were from a designer range which is no longer in stock and he has reaction lenses as well so we were going to have to get a new pair made up, that was going to cost about £150 to replace thankfully they had a pair which were their old display ones so could take the clear glass out and put his in and because we go so often they didn’t charge although the frames have some scratches in the plastic but not even noticeable once they are on

The next thing was I got up the other day and went to go on the pc to look at our rather pathetic balance in the bank to decide if I can put some petrol in my car and do some shopping I go to get MY reading glasses out of the case I keep by the pc and the arm is snapped off… now I have an old pair with exactly the same frames that broke in half by the nose piece once (the dog jumped up and broke them) so thankfully Allan managed to make a good pair out of the two.

Then last but not least so far we have my leg… for months I have not been able to walk properly because of my feet now that is starting to clear up with the use of creams 4 times a day my feet seem to be healing up well and I can now get other shoes on and my bloody leg hurts like Hell, I have pulled the thigh muscle somehow what with this and the pain in my knee where I went down in the ice and bashed them both on the edge of the curb and now I can’t bend my leg. Living on pain killers and a tens machine constantly and having to use a walking stick.

not bad eh all in a matter of less than two weeks…….

On the plus side we took them to the royal engineers museum the other day and it never cost us a penny. thank god for these one year re admittance tickets for places. so at least the boys can say they have been out somewhere in the break when they ask them what they did in the holidays… (which really pisses me off anyway as you feel obligated to take them somewhere )

Lets just hope that things start to get better soon. 😥
