April madness

Our April madness started off with some April fools fun, I must say the boy’s really enjoy April fools day and they really keep us on our toes.

I treated myself to a new hair-do, I trialed out having curls put in and I went a lot shorter.

Following on from last month’s DIY disaster we have now managed to replace the TV box, hopefully now Ian will forgive me (fingers crossed).

We had a nice delivery of a new tumble dryer, this was much welcomed, trying to get the washing dry in this horrid weather has been a nightmare.

The kid’s enjoyed a nice fun-filled Easter holiday by this point we had some beautiful weather and the sun was shining.

Bradley anxiously awaited his grading results to find out if he is a black belt….Yes well done Brad we are very proud of you!

I finally got my laptop back after a 3 week wait. 3 weeks without my laptop was a nightmare. I had to share Lee’s laptop with him, his laptop has a cut off timer on it and it powers off at 10pm so I had to get my work done rather quickly after he had finished his school work if there was any time left, I could have over-rid this but I thought I’d best leave it as it was whilst the timer was set correctly.

Some nice April madness was enjoyed with some fun family days out, a boat trip being one of them.

Plans for BritMums started to take place, now just need to decide what to wear…….yikes it is getting close now!

I started my reflexology treatment again as I have been in a little discomfort again….Ouch!

Ian enjoyed a much deserved lads day/evening out in London with work mates, Ian said “it’s a guided walk” but this guided walk entails visiting the pubs along the way.

I had my pre-assessment at the hospital, unfortunately an operation was needed due to suffering for many years of Endometriosis. Suffering with this disease is horrible, it is painful and has effected my life a great deal. In the past it resulted in me having to have a hysterectomy at the age of 27.  I have now learned to live with it and not let it beat me.

OUCH! I hate needles.

I had another nice delivery this month, Ian had treated me to a nice new Egyptian cotton toweling robe to take with me into hospital, I love it.

We finally started to find our gardens and I must say that they was in need of rescuing.

We won the raffle at Slimming world not just once this month but twice, one prize being some scales and healthy treats, the other being a pressure cooker.

We finished off our month with a nice new blog design that is more personalised to us and our blog, what do you think?
