Sleep is for the weak………please let me be weak!!

Sleep is for the weak………please let me be weak!!

Hello lovely people, long time no blog.  I feel I have been so unmotivated as of late and I’m not the kind of blogger who fills there blog with pointless content for the craic, it’s not me. So here I am with a little evening ramble as sleep is eluding me.

I complain to myself when mouse wakes me Up at the crack of dawn every morning because when she’s awake, she’s AWAKE, I mean full-let’s put on a full musical production-awake and the day starts.  I wish I could take a mousepill in the morning that helped me tap into the boundless energy source that appears to have depleted somewhere between 21-34.

Always a pretty good sleeper I now get woken maybe once a night by Tilly so she can go to the toilet but it seems it is this ungodly hour (currently 2.21am) in which my vessel decides 

‘What’s that bae u want to go back to sleep? hang on I have a better idea why don’t we lay here totally unable to get comfortable and play a game of too hot too cold’

I end up being awake for a couple of hours.  Don’t worry I spend said fine very wisely with tasks such as updating my Pinterest boards or liking photographs of the worlds most delicious looking food on Instagram.  Today I thought I woyld spend the time blogging on the hopes that it’s some kind if release that leads to sleeptime part 2 (the remix).  

My husband sleeps so soundly beside me and I’m so jealous as I know that my day is so much closer than I want it to be and it’s a super busy one with school drop offs, pickups and a spot of painting and decorating in the middle.

The light at the end of the tunnel comes next week when I finally get to go on honeymoon.  Me and hubs are going for a 4 day rest session at centreparcs while my family kindly take charge of the dog and daughter.  4 days no children, which especially after the hectic school Easter holiday with all 3 kids is much earned.  I plan on eating, sleeping and reading.  I’m so happy I can’t remember the last time I spent fun time alone with Alex, actually I can we had one evening away in September 2014!!!!

When I get back I am starting a new chapter of my life.  I am getting motivated, fit and healthy after a recent weight gain that has creeped up on me since the wedding in November.  I have Been left hating the girl who stands in front of me in the mirror, I wear my skin so uncomfortably so I’m looking to change it.  I plan on blogging my journey for added motivation and help from you beautiful readers.

I appreciate each and every one of you and let’s see how much of this I can remember and how much makes sense in the cold light of the morning.

Signing of with love and lipstick,

Busy week, tired human.

Online interview face! Ahhhh inside I was crying x

It’s been a busy little week for me, all higgildy piggledy.  Works been on different days to normal and as a total creature of habit it’s thrown me off my regular routine.  

I have applied for 2 new jobs.  I currently work at HMV on a part time basis, which I decided on when I returned to work after having mouse but as she’s getting bigger I feel it’s time to go back to work and earn a bit more money.  We have been strapped for cash but it was totally worth it as I wanted to be a full time mummy but she doesn’t need me in the same way (*insert sobbing and snot bubbles here) so it’s time.  I have decided to go for a position more suited to my passions so we shall see how that one pans out.  Honestly after the video submission (no it’s not for Britians next top human drag race) I’ll be surprised if I hear back, that was some scary shit.  

Mouse got accepted for big girl school, she’s chuffed and so am I it’s the one we wanted and the uniform is life!! Wish we could get clarkes shoes with the key in the sole to celebrate.  So in September my baby is beginning the journey to become either a world leader or a unicorn, to be fair it could go either way with her.

It was Josh’s 6th birthday last Thursday, he was at his mums so they came down on Friday and we had a lovely party for him on Saturday.  Love a good old tea party!! 

My mum has the busiest week of her year this week as she runs Necta Sugarcraft in Newcastle.  A yearly event, she co ordinates the sugarcraft arm (no pun intended) of a massive food competition that has all top chefs and sugarcrafters compeating to gain the award of Necta Sugarcrafter/chef of the year and she’s only gone and tripped up outside my house and broken her wrist.  The woman’s amazing at organisation and crap at balance.  I think she decided it wasn’t hard enough work and would add a new element (only jokin mum!).

Ooh alex and my wedding was featured on rock n roll brides website on April 1st totally not a joke, it made me all smiley.  If you fancy a peek the links below.
On the upside it’s 4 weeks today until I go on my honeymoon and I’m so excited!!!! 

So hopefully I will write a new ‘proper’ blog soon, when I get a second to myself.  I have about 18 half started blogs to work on.

Signing off with love and lipstick,
