Proud Mummy Moment

After some brilliant saves (so I'm told by Lee), and leading his team to a football win, Nicholas was a very happy recipient of the Man of the Match trophy for his goalie efforts last week.

Way to go young man!!


Proud Mummy Moment

Alexander represented 1st Rayleigh Scouts in the District Unihoc tournament at the weekend.  I believe the group had 5 teams entered and Alex's team only went and won!!!
First time in 5 year's they've won apparently...




It's been a whilst since I've done any scrapbooking, especially as at the moment, Mum and I are working on our creations for "Crafty Clogs", so it was with much anticipation that I was very much looking forward to the weekend up in Ipswich where I got to scrap my little heart out with like minded ladies at GoGo's Dayaway retreat.
I also got to see and sit next to my friend Tracy that I hadn't seen for ages!

I completed 8 layouts (just didn't add photos to one of them) that were totally out of my usual comfort zone..

I now have a selection of layouts completed that I would not usually have done that will be adoring my scrapbooks.  So happy days!


Proud Mummy Moment

After weeks of should I stay or should I leave, Cassandra was invested into 4th Rochford Cubs - Omega group.  She therefore continues her Scouting journey as a grubby Cubby!

Who knows where this will lead her?!!?

Half term...

Seems like they've only just gone back and they're off school again..

Monday saw the beasties, Mum and I all up in London at the Natural History Museum.
 Alex had the whole day planned out from which zone we would visit first, to how long we'd spend in each area!  I think his favorite was the earth and rocks!
 Cassandra loved the dino's
 And Nicholas had fun with the x-ray machine!

 And the special exhibit of whales was really interesting

A good day.



Further to last year's success, Leigh Ramblers U11 White held another quiz night.
 We had approx 10 teams come along to support us and have some fun in the process..
 Alex even had a table of buds!
I just have to say, that although it came down to the wire, Lee and I, Matt, Nicholas and my friend Debbie and her boyfriend Paul won!!!!

We raised just under £600 for the boys.

Happy days.


BFF's - birthday girl

Cassie's bestie - Millie had her birthday a few weeks ago and celebrate by having a few friends attend her birthday do at Swallows Aquatics. 

All the girls got to handle a number of animals including a rat (ugh), snake, guinea pigs, and a snake. Mille's wanted a rabbit for ages, so I think she was in love with the white bunny!
 Not sure Cassandra was too impressed with the millipede, but she loved the chameleon!
Hot food and games followed by an awesome cake made by Mum extrodianaire Martyna, ensured Millie had a great birthday!
Happy happy 9th birthday beautiful!

Proud Mum..

I remember the game well - you were the boy that had to deliver the papers on his bike..

Well, now that's Alexander as he only went and got himself a job - part of the working class now!

He started today and despite the snow, managed to get his butt out of bed and get to the newsagents on time, loaded up and did his round.  Back in time to get warm, change and go to school.

So so proud of him!


Indoor Athletics

Having taken part in Reception, Cassie was back representing Blenheim in the Indoor Athletics Interschools competition, being held at Garons last week.

I love supporting my beasties in whatever they do, but I have to admit it was just chaos. There were 21 schools taking part and each school had at least 10 kids. Two parents (minimum) per kid ensured that there wasn't even enough room to stand, let alone sit and don't get me started on those with dam buggies!!!
 Anyway, Cassie took part in a number of the activities including the relay and 'javelin'.
Blenheim did well, coming 10th out of 21 schools.
Think she just as much fun hanging with her friends Olivia and Millie as she did taking part.



It's no secret that I LOVE going to the theatre.  local or up in London.  I love a good show - musical, mystery, comedy or whatever. 

I'm also a bit of a groupie and can regularly be found lurking around the stage door os theatre's in an endeavour to obtain a star's autograph and I'm normally successful!

Both Mum and I are HUGE Strictly Come Dancing fans and Brendon Cole has been my favourite pro dancer since I started watching.  So for Mum's Christmas pressie, I bought us tickets to go and see his new show 'All Night Long' at the Cliffs Pavilion.

In true stalker fashion we got to meet the man himself and what a lovely guy he was too!

Then the other week, Mum and I went back to the Cliffs Pavillion to see Sunset Boulevard - mainly because it had Danny Mac in it (we both think that he was robbed of that Strictly win, but hey ho..) and he was Mum's absolute favourtie!

Again, patience is a virtue and we got to meet and chat to the lovely man himself.  Albeit he was a little shorter and definately a little slimmer than I thought.
