4 weeks notice :D

Well I handed in my 4 weeks notice to work last week.
As of the 18th August I will be off for a month before I start Uni as a full time nursing student.
Summer holidays here I come 😀

I will be spending time with C before she goes back to nursery as we will be upping her hours and she will be going for 2 and a half days a week.

I’m currently looking for a last minute holiday somewhere for us to go on, Do you have any suggestions?
Looking at the last week in August/ start of September, somewhere that isn’t to far to travel ( from home in Liverpool) but with things to do.

I’m also looking at doing some day trips and visiting some local attractions like the museum and possibly the zoo.

I will also be sorting out things in the house, getting everything clean and tidy. I know that once i’m at uni then I wont be able to help around the house as much and that my mum will have c a lot more on her own so it will be harder to keep on top of all the household chores.

I want to use some of the time once C is back in nursery to sort out her room, maybe put her bed from toddler sized into the next stage and get rid of some of the babyish toys and things in there.
If I can make the room into a good space for her to play and relax. As i’m sure she will be becoming more independent as she grows older and be able to play on her own.
I also want to encouraging her so get dressed on her own and tidy up after herself so reorganising her room will help with that.

What are you top tips for kids bedrooms? 

My new busy life diary

For Christmas from my brother I asked for a new diary, for the last few years I have had a diary that I have used to plan my life.

I write down everything in it, work shifts , appointments, meetings with friends, nights out, days out, birthdays. Everything!
My life is contained in that one little book.

So when Tom asked me what I wanted for Christmas I said a diary. He complained saying that he couldn’t get me just a diary for Christmas but I explained how my diary holds my life in it and it had to be a specific one, with space for everything that I could think of.
So being the very helpful sister I am, and to make sure it was right I sent him the URL to it on Amazon so he could buy it.

Here it is!


Well I got my new busy family diary and I have to say I love it.
It has the usual personal info and useful numbers pages but also has very useful pages like one to write everyone’s birthdays on, this will be a lifesaver as I have at least 50 people who I need to get birthday cards for throughout the year as we have quite a large family.


Each week has a double page, with space for me to write all my notes, appointments etc on one side, and a page with columns on the other, these I can divvy up as I’d like, I will have one for all C’s appointments, baby ballet classes as well as when she will be visiting people.
I also plan on using one column as a food diary to help me get back on to Slimming world and stick to the plan by writing what i’ve eaten each day.


Each month also has a page with reminders and a pocket for notes etc


I look forward to filling this one up with notes and memories to look back on like I have my last few.

If you’re anything like me and feel as if you have a thousand things to do each day and worry about keeping on top of everything, then I suggest you invest in a family diary and keep everything in one place.
