Hello Long time no blog ey?! I bet you’ve missed me? Ha ha! I have been keeping You updated with the kids stuff on Facebook but though if I’m gonna call myself a blogger maybe I’d better actually write a proper post!! 😄
So this is a little bit different. It’s not all about the kids, as the title suggests it’s All About Me and my crazy antics this time😊 Hope you find it amusing ……….
I’ve been spending a little time on myself lately and leaving daddy to deal with the kids! I’ve gotta say he did do a grand job of keeping them alive and no real dramas 👍 He might moan a lot about being ‘Daddy Daycare’ at the weekends but he’s not all that bad 😘
Here’s some of what I’ve been up to……..
Take That and Party!
So me and me Julie like to go to gigs so we went off to see the lovely Take That in Southampton…. well they most certainly did not disappoint. Had a brilliant night and a good view 😍 sore throat from belting out their all time greatest hits! We had a fab night until…… the way home we were running late for the last train back to Pompey and of course we managed to get lost 🤦🏻♀️. We couldn’t find the train station in the dark and we weren’t even bloody drunk!! We took a short cut to get back and had to go down to street level from a shopping centre. Except all the shops were now closed. We found a Lift in the car park jumped in it and realised we couldn’t get out of the door 😳. SHIT 💩It was stuck good and proper. We were already late for the train then the lift doors wouldn’t open further than 2 inches! Kept trying the open door button and it just juddered and creaked barely opening at all. The alarm intercom thingy wasn’t working no answer. We were dehydrated and needed a pee desperately ….Someone had pissed in the corner, which was nice but I was thinking I’m gonna have to go in a minute too. Panic started to set In. We were stuck in a fucking lift at almost midnight with barely any phone battery left after the concert. We yelled out the small gap “help were stuck in the lift” to people in the car park but they ignored us! The next time it opened a crevice I put my hands in and pulled as hard as I could with an almighty hulk like strength 💪🏻. I did it I pulled apart the broken lift door and we made our escape thank fuck!! We somehow made our train too after actually running, almost hyperventilating and pissing our pants (my pelvic floor is not so good these days!) 🤣
Spice Up Your Life ✌🏻💃🏻🌎
Next Up was Spice girls two weeks later. Love a bit of Girl Power ✌🏻 They were really good performing as expected but the whole thing wasn’t amazing! Take That was a better experience (before the lift situation). Mainly because loads more drunk bitches were pushing and shoving past the whole show. Couldn’t see much of the actual spice girls on stage only a glimpse now an again if you strained your neck on tip toes! (I am only 5ft). The atmosphere was amazing though and we sung our hearts out but the really pissed people were very annoying. We’d had a few vinos but not too many. Then would you believe it …..another drama? 😳 Lol Me and Julie almost got stranded in bloody London couldn’t find the coach park after the show and the stewards all sent us the wrong way 🤦🏻♀️ We panicked almost crying and collapsing in a heap on the floor! But we managed to pull ourselves together. We ended up walking outside Wembley in a dodgy part of town where the 3rd steward we asked sent us!!
We actually did a full lap around the outside of Wembley. We went back to the actual stadium and finally found the coach park 1/2 hour later!
When we eventually found the coach it was about to drive off back to Pompey without us!! 😳 I’ve never shit my self so much I tell ya.
Literally Ran for the coach where we got told off and we sheepishly apologised to the others. Luckily the coach park was rammed so gave us extra time! …. honestly could only happen to us!! Stuck in a lift last time and almost stranded this time!! Lol We shouldn’t be allowed out without close supervision lol 🤦🏻♀️
Hula Hooping Race for Life
I decided to sign myself up for the 5k RFL but with did it with my hula hoop along with my lovely friends from Hoopshaker! I’ve done it before a few times and it’s really good fun. I came out of retirement especially. I haven’t hula hooped for about 4 years properly, what with having 3 babies within 2 years etc. So got back to a couple of classes before hand for practice and had a go in the garden every opportunity I could grab! This Girl’s still got it 🙌⭕️……I’m bit rusty but my child bearing hips are still good at wiggling a hoop 😊 The day of the Race was a lovely atmosphere and I met lots of new people.
Life is All About Balance
It’s so nice to do something for myself other than just being mum. As Much as I adore my position as chief ‘Chaos Co-ordinator’ aka Mum I love being part of a social group again. It does wonders for your confidence and breaks up the normality of life just for an hour or 2 a week …. an escape from reality. As good as any therapy session to improve your mental health and wellbeing.
After 2 years of basically just surviving Day by day I feel my life getting back on track now! The baby years have been a bit of a blur really but a nice blur of course.
I’ve let myself go mentally and physically to be honest, as I’ve been so concentrated on taking care of the kiddies. Now they are off to nursery and school in September I think things may improve and I’ll get some sort of balance back in my life! I wouldn’t change a thing about my beautiful babies. I feel ready to take on new challenges now and grab back a piece of me time. After all, I so deserve it!! 💁🏻♀️
I’d love to try new things too like Rock choir …. a couple of my friends do this and looks amazing fun (also I could sing without being told to shut up your annoying/embarrassing!) 🎤 I’d Love to learn to do tricks/moves on my quad roller skates. I’ve even been looking at more circus skills like aerial hoop and static trapeze!!! One day maybe? Once I loose about 5 stone lol 🤣 When time allows in the future I might get to try some of these things out. I’d be so bored going to a gym or running everyday….I’d like to keep fit doing something different and a little bit crazy just like me😜
Self confidence and making new friends from all walks of life is important to me. Taking up a hobby or two helps me to manage everything I have to deal with for my gorgeous special family. I don’t usually let things grind me down, no matter how hard they get BUT I wouldn’t be human if I said I don’t have days when life IS overwhelming. Some time out can just give you enough breathing space to think calmly before taking on the next day/ with a fresh head and positive mindset. More of this please 😊PMA✌🏻
Anyways I know I’m rambling on lots now, something I’m very good at! Lol Thanks for reading…. if you managed the whole post well done you 🤣👏🏻🙌
In the famous words of Shrek “Better out than In I always say” This Works for feelings and farts 😆
Lots of Love
