OMG the length of time between posts is increasing all the time! Utterly disgraceful. I’m surprised WordPress have let me log back in to be honest. Today I noticed that my lovely friend and fellow blogger Karen had revisited her great blog today so it motivated me to do the same. That and the fact that I’ve endured two footy matches on the telly in succession and am now losing the will!
Well my last post was October so it’s fair to say the months (and life in general) are just flying by. Jake is now the grand old age of 7 and has lost about the same amount of teeth which is very strange, as he looks more grown up the more “big teeth” he gets. Scary stuff. There’s another one hanging by a thread right now so the tooth fairy will be making a visit soon I’d say.
He’s still footy daft and his season is about to come to an end so we’ll have to go through the trials again very soon. It’s a shame as he loves his team mates and we’ve sadistically grown to love our Sunday mornings yelling and cheering like banshees! Fingers crossed they’ll all be playing again together next time around.
The main event since I last blogged is my little sister’s wedding which was a simply brilliant day. All of the many children who attended were perfectly behaved which was a plus point! Jake did us all proud in his role as page boy and took his responsibilities very seriously.
Lily was adorable as flower girl and the bride and groom scrubbed up well too (!).
My dad stole the show whilst walking his youngest daughter down the aisle with a face full of emotion – he had us all in tears too! Somehow I managed to survive making the only speech of the day – a toast to my Mam, who I know would have loved to have been there. Her absence was hard for me but especially so for my sister on her big day, and making the speech was tough but I did it. I now appreciate how a “best man” must feel!
The boys managed to fit in a trip to Old Trafford which (apparently) was great!
So there’s lots to look forward to this year – we’ve a new car on order (which admittedly Mark is more excited about than me!), we’ve just booked a trip to York Races with friends, our annual trip to the Mouth of the Tyne Festival and another attempt on Mark’s part to get under 2 hours at this year’s Great North Run (mental). I’m also set to be godmother again too which is a lovely honour, as the little guy in question is just fab. Somewhere along the way a holiday would be great, but that will be subject to any footy and work commitments. It’s fair to say some sun is desperately needed. A little spa break could be good too!
So just a short one for now but now I’m back on the horse (so to speak) it won’t be so long ’til next time.
