Week 29.

Odd happenings in Wakefield

Slightly odd goings on outside the Cathedral in the city centre on Tuesday. Couldn't actually work out what they were doing or why but looked like they were having fun anyway.

Lunch at The Capri, Wakefield

Lunch with The Man and the father in law.

Year six leavers assembly

The penultimate day at The Boy's junior school and it was the Leavers Assembly and the Leavers Party. There were tears and they were mostly mine.

The Boy on his last day at school

And finally, after six long years for him, and seventeen even longer years for me (don't ever have children five years apart), we both finished primary school. Him, the education bit. Me, the walking to and fro school run bit. Hurrah.

Onwards and upwards to new adventures.

Ossett Gala

Daughter3 finds the best way of dealing with a family day out at Ossett Gala is wearing headphones so she's doesn't have to listen to her family.

Snail on a plant

I found this snail teetering atop a foot high plant looking very nervous

Since the twins were born, we/ they have been part of the TEDS (Twins Early Development) Study. The latest questionnaire arrived this week now that they are 21 years old.

Old postbox wakefield

Postbox, Wakefield


We're having quite a bit of work done in the back garden so I've been busy preparing plants to go in when it's finished. I've grown some from bulbs and other's I've rescued from the nearly-dead plant section of the local supermarket and coaxed back to life because no one wants to finish a garden with nothing to put in it.

Twin2 graduating with a BA(Hons) degree in English Language and Linguistics at Huddersfield University. Very pleased I didn't burst with pride to be honest.

Week 21

double rainbow

Today was the day that we found The Teen's prom dress. Hurrah. A prom dress that is entirely a different length, style and colour to the prom dress she went looking for, but the perfect prom dress for her nevertheless, but it is, of course, a great big secret until the big day and so you have to make do with the stunning rainbows that greeted our arrival home from the shops.

Photography Project 365, Week 20

This year I'm attempting Project 365, taking a photo (or two) a day every day, 365 days of the year.

Week 19

GCSEs 2017

This week is the start of the Teen's GCSEs - a whole month, broken by a week of half term, of exams. Luckily, I get her exam nerves and The Teen, who sat her first three GCSEs last year, is calm tranquility herself so I think we'll get through it, though I'll be keeping my fingers crossed for the foreseeable future.

Why I'm Voting Labour

Well, why would I not vote for this Labour party?

According to the Labour manifesto, the majority of Labour's policies are policies that I believe in. Their election promises, ones that I want to be kept. I want a political party that works 'For the Many, Not the Few.'

I want to see an end to Tory austerity; to the selling off of the NHS, to the shutting down of local services, the erosion of worker's rights, and what amounts to little more than the persecution of the sick, the poor and the needy in our society.

I don't want 80 ill people dying each week because they've been declared fit for work. I don't want our nurses having to feed their families from food banks. I don't want fracking, and I don't want fox hunting. Then again who would?
