Sometimes recently, I feel a bit like I'm neglecting you beautiful lot! I read all these excellent and informative posts on all manner of things from parenting to procrastinating, and feel a bit stumped for what to write myself! As you all know, our living situation is a little tricky these days with Baby Daddy's ongoing disability which has badly affected our daily lives. Because of this we, well we don't really DO a lot! I can't write about fantastic places we go or exciting things we do, because the most exotic place me and Josh have been recently is the aquatic section of the garden centre!!
The most frivolous thing we've done recently is to gravel our old flower bed in the garden and the most spontaneous thing we've done was to buy some new GU puds from Sainsbury's. We are so rock and roll these days! In fact I suddenly felt about twenty years older this weekend when I realised that I am very happy and content in my rigid daily routine! The inner need to dispel this feeling craved a random bungee jump or something equally carefree just to prove to myself I'm actually only 24...then my inner old granny said 'sod it' and I went back to wearing my slippers, drinking hot chocolate and reading my book in bed! My inner granny almost suffered a nervous breakdown last week when I actually went on my first night out THIS YEAR! Yes, I know. I stuffed her to the back on my mind and boogied, and drank my way through an entire day and night of fun and laughter. It was a great night but boy oh boy did I feel rough for two days. Since when did hangovers last longer than a long lay in, a macdonalds lunch and an afternoon nap?...Since I became a mother that's when. My hangovers are now encouraged by hours of Handy Manny and Mickey Mouse, a toddler using my body as a climbing frame and nappies with various contents requiring my attention. It really is momentous.
I'm working little a looney these days! I can't complain at all because I absolutely love it (if you didn't know I started a business selling handmade goods this summer www.daisydaysdesigns.co.uk ) and am very blessed to be able to do something I love finally. But as with all business's it's in it's early stage and I could really do with transforming my spare bedroom in to a proper workshop. So if anyone has some spare money, spare Ikea vouchers or the like then let me know because I will happily take them off your hands to help with my 'workshop' a.k.a escape room!
Joshua is a gem. It's approaching his second birthday now, less than a month away and he's really making some developmental progress now. He understands everything that we say to him, he's amazing us every day with all these things he suddenly knows how to do. Yesterday he spilt some juice-next thing he's got a tea towel and was wiping it up! Well Trained, my son! Can't say he got that from his Dad!
Other than that there is no earth shattering news on the Twenty Something Mum front at the moment! My house is still a tip with my living room resembling an explosion at Toys'r'us, my fridge freezer is on the brink of breaking...OOOO I did paint my kitchen last week-that was pretty earth shattering for me! Especially as I didn't plan on it and just decided to do it on the day...after about ten minutes felt like an idiot, a knackered one! I realised I had probably taken on too much with that task but couldn't stop as the main section of wall had a massive duck egg coloured smear down the middle....suffice to say it now looks amazing but my arms have only just stopped aching!
So you bootiful lot, what have you been up to? Anyone got any huge news? Please? Need something interesting to captivate me!!! SAVE ME FROM MY BOREDOM!
Love Chloe xx
