Wilton Supercar Day

After a late start (couldn't make my mind up, to go or not to go)
and a hour and a half sat in traffic. Well not for me and Flynn as we got out and walked, the mile and a half instead.
We arrived here
For the Wilton Supercar Day
Now if I'm honest I'm really not into cars but it was a nice day and I know two little fellas and one rather much older fella that would love to go and see a bunch of dream cars.
Saying that we all had a fantastic day.

Flynn was lucky enough to be asked if he would like to sit in this car well they did the rev test.
Of course you need to know which car was the loudest hee hee.

I love this photo they all look so happy.

Flynn and Lily seeing how prickly this tree is

I often see arty pictures of car wheels not sure I got it right.

I did ask Mike if he was going to buy me one of these for my next birthday, the thing is I don't think he could afford one wheel let alone the car.

Loved this one

Now this is more like it hee hee.

So a great day out another one for next year diary.
 I think I'll try and get some practice in in car photography.

We may go back next week as Wilton House and the grounds are beautiful lot's of lovely places for picnics and a fantastic play park for the kids.

Have a great week.



When we moved to our new rented house I was determined I was going to make it our HOME
unlike our last house which never really felt like home.
Yes we bought the children up there and we did have some good times but for reasons which would take me for ever and a day to explain I just never felt settled there.
However after only being here a little over four months this is already starting to feel like home.
And from what the children say and how they have been behaving I'd say they were all pretty happy as well.
So inside is somewhat plain at the moment, it's a new build, so your not suppose to paint or do to much with it until the first year has passed, therefore I have done my best with furniture and hung the odd picture and photo and it's nice, cosy, clean, tidy and clutter free which is how I like it.

But hey the back yard is where I have been spending my days (When the British weather allows).
Hence this week I started work on the back yard.

This is what it looked like before I started.
OK so it doesn't look to bad, may be lacking in a bit of character.
Oh but that little bit near the shed was growing rather a lot of weeds and the odd mushroom.

Progress !

It may not seem like I had done much but I weeded, put some grass seed down, the lawn was slightly patchy. I bought a couple of slabs for the ugly bin to sit on and I also have a couple of pots which I  filled with what I hope will be some lovely flowers in a few weeks time, sooner if the weather is good to me.

Day Two.
More Progress!

DA DA I now have my own little beach hut to admire when I'm outside having a cuppa and knitting or reading.

Just need the summer to return now so I can do a little bit more, I would like to add a few more flowers and may be some climbers.

I've really enjoyed doing the garden and for once I've done it all myself, no one telling me what colours I should use or where I should put my pots, what flowers to have, this is all my work and if the flowers don't grow or the grass seed doesn't take then I'll just try again.

I want to say I hope your all having a good week but I feel like I'm talking to myself  as I only have the one follower, so Alex I hope your having a fantastic week.



OK so I'm having a little trouble, I really want a blog and perhaps even one that has a few followers but I keep asking myself the same questions.

1/ What makes me think I have anything worthwhile to say.
2/ There's nothing special about my humdrum life that warrants documentation.
and number THREE.
 No one has ever said to me that my writing was good enough that anyone would actually want to read my words, so don't embarrass myself.

I don't know what ever made me think I was actually going to do this. After all this is not my first blog (that's an understatement) and yet my efforts have only ever lasted for a short while, then fizzled out, only for me to want to give it another go a few weeks, months later and that would start a new chapter in  my life so I would start yet enough blog.

So with all this in mind I have been trying to ignore the fact that I started this blog but I can't any longer it's out there and waiting for it's pages to be filled and for people to see what this everyday mum gets up to with her three children.

I just have to change the way I look at blogging.
So I've been thinking, I should be using my heart to fill my pages.
Being careful of course, to avoid rules of any kind, especially the ones on how much time I'm suppose to spend blogging.
I want to enjoy the time I spend on my blog and feel lighthearted about what I write and not just make it another addition to a already busy schedule.
This is all about breaking old habits.

So instead of being a blog, this is going to be my online journal.
