To mother.

Hello people,

This is the dear son of Lisa.

Due to her annoyance of her imitating the face of 'Honey Boo Boo Mama' (Picture bellow)

I have decided to reward her in kind with the quotes from her fave film, 'The Room' as directed and starred by Tommy Wiseau.

Enjoy the video, and love ya moma ;)

So today we went shopping to Farm foods. It doesn't matter if your on a budget or not, its fantastic value. Frozen veg/fruit just for starters 3 for £2, so loads was bought of that. Also they have 1 KG bags of chicken breasts you can either buy a bag or 3 bags for £10. You can mix and match on the 3 for £10 items. I also got 3 bags of salmon for £10 there's four pieces in each bag and they are yummy! 

I could go on and on and on at the savings. Take a look at their website and find your nearest store. I've been buying from them for years since my kids were little. Like any shop, you have to find the bargains. But you'll find loads there. I'll put my receipt up soon and you shall see what I saved and bought.

What we did over Weekend

So What a fab weekends Weather we had . Well we went to a Car boot ,got there a bit late as someone was suppose to turn up to fix the heating and he was a no show. Lucky for us our landlord turned up Sunday morning to fix it ( how lucky are we not many would do that) So after that went to Boston and had a wander.Sunday was a busy day .We cleaned Animals out they spent most of the day in there runs .Then i'd been looking at buying a fruit cage and there was no way we could afford 1.Then we had a fab idea,we had frame's left from last year from the plastic greenhouses that we got for £1.70 each.We got netting from Poundland .So see the pic's below to see what hubby made.

  Ain't it fab , so we gonna make another 1 to go over the blueberry bushes.

Welcome and good morning to anyone who stumbles upon my thoughts.
Well, I am sat here on my own, the hubby's gone to work, kids asleep and all is quiet.While typing this I'm also watching a garden program and its making me think of summer. Oh I wish for the sun just to appear and make me smile and to feel it on my face. It would make me so happy. If it did, I could make a start on my gardens, front and back. I'll be able to have the windows and doors open. The air would flow through the home, and I could start decorating. It would make it feel more like our home.

We have a nice landlord who's said we can decorate how we want. Which is so nice, since some landlords don't like you to change the decor. We all would love to go for nice walks and picnics and go to the beach. It's hard in the cold weather as my oldest gets cold so quick and ends up in pain for days after.

As I look out of the window, more snow is falling. It would be so nice just by the click of my fingers I could make it disappear. The other day I went out and cleaned the animals out and thought 'Hm, lets get sweeping'. So I did. All around the bungalow then the front. It looked so much better, and I felt so much better.
Then it got too cold and I retreated inside. But, just that little bit time outside made me feel great.
Do you ever feel like you have to be super woman and just do everything in one day? That if somethings out of place that it really annoy's you? That you look at other blogs and think 'How the hell does there home look perfect and mine looks so crap!' ? Then I sit down and think 'What the hell, and I give up!'

Since writing this I had a lazy morning, kids got up about half 12. Then after my shower my son said,"Right, what do you need doing?" With that said, we sorted the porch out and now filled with loads for the charity shop : ). Conservatory is cleaned stuff gone in porch for charity shop. Still more to do but feel better.

Saturday, 23 February 2013


As title says it is a mess! Yesterday, I started to clear some more things for the charity shop and I moved furniture. Now I've had enough and haven't done anything today apart from a load of washing, made some bread and drink brews.Oh, and watch TV. Why do I start these things? Because I know after a few hours I'll think, "Why? Oh why did i start?" Then, I'll shut the door and walk away.
I've got 3 piles of washing to iron and I keep moving it, and I keep thinking it might just go away. Its still there.
Now I'm sat here thinking what else to say. There's nothing else to say except I'm tired and fed up. Hopefully, tomorrow I'll feel better and be able to get in to gear and do something about it.

Well here's the BIRTHDAY GIRL 16 TODAY! Now she wanted it to snow for her birthday and it did! She wanted a Dr. Seuss birthday cake, and that's what she got. She loves it, and I don't think it turned out that bad.

Thanks for looking.
