Pirates, Abbeys and Mountains

pirates, abbey and mountains

So little late posting this one up, but I’m suffering alot with dehydration and fatigue. Working nights doesn’t help but neither does having a toddler where I grab maybe an hour here or there.  Last Saturday 00Steve was trying to get the hall ready for painting, our house literally is falling apart so he has had tons to do. We decided that he would pay our train fare and I would take Ra-Ra to Whitby where she was excited to see pirates. Read more

I’m Pooped

trek through the woods and up the mountain

I am so tired today. I promised Ra-Ra we could go up the  mountain (that’s what she calls Roseberry Topping) through the woods. I decided to do that today whilst 00Steve is away on his brothers stag do. I made up a picnic and got Ra-Ra all sun creamed up and off we went. Read more

Owls And Scavving

So like I said we had our eldest nephew over for the weekend. 00Steve decided that we should go to the local Owl Sanctuary in Kirkleatham. I decided to make up a scavenger hunt for them to do in the woods, this was to keep them both occupied and made me feel like they were going to learn something new, well I hoped! Plus owls are kick ass! Read more

Bonnie Scotland

So we went for a weekend away in Edinburgh to stay with our friends who I fondly call The Puddleducks. Ra-Ra hadn’t ever left the country so I had organised awhile back to stay with them. Most people wouldn’t class a mini holiday in Scotland leaving the country but it is still a separate country here. Read more

Wander In the Woods

First things first, yesterday I saw my stoma nurse and she put some silver nitrate on the granulomas so hopefully that’s that! Today we met up with 00Steve’s best mate/brother Chappie and his girlfriend Magz. We went off towards Thirsk and for a wander up to the White Horse, Magz being from Durham had no idea it existed. I wanted to show Ra-Ra the planes and gliders, part of me wanted to show off to her because a few years ago 00Steve paid for me to have a glider lesson. (I love planes ha ha when I was 16 and 17 I did aerobatic flying lessons) Read more

Pink Punk Army

Today was Cancer Research’s Race For Life 5K event in Middlesbrough. Since 2013 I have done it every year since (I was heavily pregnant that first year) with Ra-Ra. It’s like our thing, it’s great because I have watched her progress from tip toeing across the finish line, to walking and now running across the line. Now I can’t find one of me pregnant but that maybe a good thing! Read more

You Can’t Go Over It, You Can’t Go Under It

you can't go over it and you can't go under it

You have to go through it! I love the book We’re going on a bear hunt and that phrase went through my head as we had another three generation ladies day  (sorry I keep putting that as Geordie the dog is a boy) this time we kept it local by going for a walk into Cliff Ridge Wood. Read more
