Hi all how have you been?

Been so very busy here this last week.

First I will talk about the book

4 days to go ๐Ÿ˜ต

Book launches an exciting time, last minute details sorted putting it up on all your site’s, sharing the excitement with others. I have even had some more shares which is so awsome.๐Ÿ˜€โค๏ธ

It’s the lovely public and family and friends you build along the way that lift you, give you grate advice, talk to you about your work and why you wrote the book,.

It’s your hubby helping with the video part of for book trailer, and encouraging you yes I am akward on screen but he made it easier and I got the fits of giggles, that happens quite often when I am supposed to be serious it’s a nervous habit.

We were both trying to keep a straight face, not always successful, we had to do a few takes, you know when you try to speak sometimes and your mouth feels like you been to dentist and can’t get your lips to move, words just don’t come out how you want. ๐Ÿ˜‚

From the outside it probally would have been Painful to watch. Still we got it done in the end and let’s just say I am not a natural on screen, but I. Not going to let that fear of speaking beat me.

My oldest son Josh is making the trialer for me, so you could say this book has been fully enclusive of ally family with them Thier input making it what it is. It’s so satisfying knowing that this has had an impact on us all.


The last 2 weekends double night shifts then this week, plus getting everything ready for Hayley’s week away so I can say this week is officially holiday for me Starting today. Well the caring side of work Anyway. Hayley all packed medicines ordered and picked up, her money for spending sorted, and a suitcase full of Mickey Mouse clothes, she worked me hard this week.๐Ÿ˜€

Niki and Jake

Lazy days mostly sleeping In late much like most teens In Holiday, except for the other day Jake getting up at 6.30 making chocolate cake.

Tomorrow dad’s on duty I set a challenge for him taking Niki and Jake to town And sorting Niki her first adult bank account, I was prepared everything ready, I even made food for them to eat tommorow when I am away for the day.

My mum.

I got a surprise when I got back from food shopping, I box from the flower shop mum sent me flowers with a lovely little card and message.

It made my day, but also though she was naughty to do it. I really don’t expect things like that but it was nice.

She has been back in hospital for a few days now, so me and my dad are driving up together tomorrow to visit.

Can’t wait to see her again, spends some time with her.

Cooking Greek style today, Greek music playing, Pastichio and salade and the trimmings. I know my hubby likes it and he has been making my Dinners, fabulous BLT sandwiches the last couple of days. He deserves a pampering to. The kids though I had to make Thier food different , Niki had carbanara, no meat Jake had his pasta cooked with garlic and added a little butter after, at least he lets them be added now and enjoys it cooked that way.

Fresh ingredients , I picked up at shopping today ready for cooking.

The finnished meal the kids had already eaten so I lit the candles had the music softly playing and my hubby for company, my idea of perfect. What more could I ever want then that.๐Ÿ’ž๐Ÿ’•๐Ÿ’“๐Ÿ˜ณโค๏ธ

The evening ended with us all in the front room watching the new Dumbo movie the kids stayed the whole way through , what a lovely movie and Dumbo is the cutest thing, the eyes make you want to pick him up and hug him, crying for his mama, but proving he could for her to. Loved the actors in the film definatley the right choice love the ending when they let him go and the message about no real animals at thier circus at the end.

Quite a positive message to send.

Jake was Thier he was laying on the floor he brought l his pillows his duvet, a d his cuddle toys with him๐Ÿ˜‚

That’s all for tonight I must sleep now long journey tomorrow.

I will Finnish this blog with a favorite photo of mine of Niki dressed up for one of her school dress up days.
