I should blog

Everytime I think to myself I want to blog. I want to record a diary for my little one to look back on, or even me.  I have followed people who have a blog and wanted to be like them or make money from stuff but now its just for me. So if you are reading this then I am sure there are better ones . Ones that can spell better than I can and punctuate better .  Prob also have better posts.  This is going to be for me , me and my little girl to just have a space in the world where we can post our adventures and our memories.  Please be kind if you look .

I logged on to wordpress to discover my old one so why not ….. I will continue one I started.  Life has changed so much for us in so many ways.  Life is so short and all I want this for is a space for me and my daughter to record our adventures .

Much love Lorraine

Coincidence ? God?

In a very weird way, a  Joel Osteen you tube video turned up in my life today.  I have to wonder when things like this happen.  Is it a coincidence?  Is there such a thing?  If its all meant to be then it’s a sign……right ?

I am a believer in a higher being, higher spirit, higher love.  I always believed in God and Jesus as a child but we were not a church going family and were not a reading family so the bible was definitely not something we read or had.  My mum and dad were not opposed to God but more opposed to religion.  Limiting and rules I think.  My mum always said that if god was all loving and if god made us then he wouldn’t make us born with sin.  No parent would.  She also told me that you don’t need to go to church to pray or talk with god as not everyone can walk and not everyone can talk.  C you can do it anywhere.  I clearly must have asked a lot about god and why we didn’t go to church for these to be her answers.  She at least left me to make my own decisions but we were never overly encouraged forward and thats probably because their parents didn’t either.

However we are in a ‘healing’ part of our life and Joel Osteen seems to have popped into my life with some amazing motivational videos.  It was as if the video that I got shown was exactly what I needed.  a message from above?  A sign ?  I would like to think so

Me and my husband listened to his videos all afternoon.  The uplift we felt was incredible.  My husband before our life changing event was not religious or overly believing but strange what life will do to you.  We have been forced to change our life and in small ways, slowly, god has entered?  I dont know if I am holding hope but I am ready to embrace this new part of it.  I like to think that there is someone , up there, looking out for me.

When the world gives you lemons

Not sure how to start this blog.  2016 did not end the way it was meant to.   The cause….People, evil people.  I have always been a sensitive person and a person who wears my heart on my sleeve.  I hurt easily and love easily.  Found it to be a tough end to the year when people decide to lie, lie to seek revenge for something that didn’t need revenge.  Hate is a horrible thing and the actions people take to do things to  people they dislike.   Well I hope they reap what they sow.  Karma will seek revenge I hope.  They ( the wise people we never know lol) say that what you put out in the world you get back.  At times I have to admit I think thats why evil turned up at our door but in return it should turn up at theirs.  I don’t wish bad on anyone but I do hope Karma is involved.

Any way enough of that.  We are into 2017 .  Broken, hurt, sad and a little bit more wary but we are here, we are a family and thats all we can ask.

I write this blog for me, no-one else.  I loved doing diaries when I was little and I every time I have started a blog I end up stopping and always so difficult to close it with all my posts on and my pictures on so I will continue this and keep my cute memories.

2017 is definitely a NEW NEW NEW start for me.  I have never had a new start like it .  I don’t know where I am going or what I am going to do but maybe writing some of it down and the changes I get will be an amazing journey to record.

I believe very much in the Law of Attraction and lets see if it can make its difference for me this year.

 

April turns 4

The days can be long but the years are short.

4 already. Wow. Couldn’t be more proud of this gorgeous girl.   I love everyday with her.   Even the hard ones.  She is so funny and so caring.   Thank you for choosing me to be your mummy.  Love you to the moon and back.

P.s. My blackboard idea has been previously blogged about but you can get the idea from the photos x

Birthday party day

April turned four on the 30th October.  We decided this year we would do a birthday party for her, we have previously had them in the house but this year we thought we would go all out and have a proper party.  I think 4 is the best age, for April anyway, as she knew what it was all about, knew what fun was to be had and wasn’t too overwhelmed.  

Me however.  Ahhhhhh I had lists coming out of my ears.   I organised entertainers who did a disco and party games but I still felt there was a lot to do.  I am a bit of a prefectionsist, or I try to be, so I always felt there was something I had forgot.   It was great fun coming up with little ideas and fun party prizes and party bags.  

April had a blast, all the kids did.   Was all worth it seeing the smile on their faces.  Even better when she got Olaf to join the party.  Well done me.  I deserved my glass of wine when it was all over 

Bake bake cake

Remind me next year that I just need to buy a cake, go to shop and let April pick a cake from the supermarket.  Soooooo much easier.   After all do kids really bother if it’s homemade. Do they care how it actually tastes.  April doesn’t even eat cake but there I am with a recipe which has 10 eggs in it.   What was I thinking !

Youtube open for my lesson on buttercream and off I went .  The results, gladly, was a lovely cake. And a very messy kitchen, icing that got everywhere , 6 hours gone from my day as well as £30. Again.  Remind me next year to buy a cake.   I was however very very impressed by myself lol.  

Nothing ever goes as you plan

Just a short wee post.  This weekend I had it full of lots of activities and non stop fun but. …..   best laid plans never happen.   I woke up at around 2:30 with a head cold.   Seriously I’m too busy so please go away …. just in case you think that worked.  It didn’t .  I fell asleep again around 4 and my gorgeous girl woke me at 8.  I still had the head cold .   

Well had to change a few things but in the end it was still a good day.  We got baking the cakes for tomorrow and had fun doing that.  

The pumpkins didn’t get done and the pumpkin patch/farm didn’t get visited. However we will still have fun making pumpkin faces on Monday.  Maybe even Sunday night on her birthday .  Moral of my blog.  Have to go with the flow 😂

October 

I love October.  It’s my little princess’s birthday, which I just adore planning and organising. Halloween and gorgeous autumn days.  

April turns 4 this year (cannot believe she is 4) and this year she is fully aware of birthdays and the fun of it all. Last year when she was 2 turning 3 she wasn’t sure about it all and very overwhelmed so this year is exciting.  Every year they are at a different stage and birthdays and christmases are new again 

So this weekend is full full full.  Friday we are carving pumpkins , Birthday party on Saturday (first proper party) Sunday is birthday and she is getting a bunny rabbit and Monday is Halloween.   So much fun to be had in one weekend.  I can’t wait.  Wish me luck lol 

Family safari adventure 

Best laid plans and all that….. I bought tickets to use over the summer for a lovely day out to safari park zoo near us.  Plans of sunny day, shorts and t-shirt, BBQ and full day lazing about there.  Summer came and went and I had to use them or lose them.  This weekend was it.  

Rained all day saturday so went for double or nothing for the Sunday.  Bright but cold.   Off we went.  God likes a laugh too I think and we parked the car and the rain fell.   Rain never hurt anyone and off we went.  It might not hurt anyone but it’s still cold lol.   We had a good day anyway although a little shorter.   I even managed a hot cuppa tea to keep my hands from turning to ice, while April and daddy went on the boat.  

Any day is a memory
