Big Blue and Yellow Uni shop…

Today youngest and I took the car to the mainland to visit IKEA, he wanted to get bits and pieces for his student house, we’ve drawn up a list and off we go…..


I have a ‘family card’ so breakfast is only £1.50, plus free coffee, bargin 🤗 It will set us up for the IKEA shuffle through the marketplace 😳 We were really lucky and including breakfast and a drink break we were back on the 12:00 ferry, skint, but all done 😇

Judt needs to be all packed up tomorrow….


I am really looking forward to tonight, out for a family goodbye meal for youngest, the only sad bit is that eldest can’t make it, real shame, but we will make it upto him. Youngest has chosen the venue, a trendy ‘grill’ in Cowes – not what I would have chosen, but I am sure it will be great.


I promise, after this weekend, I will stop banging on about Uni stuff and concentrate on cooking….

Hi - I'm a 49 yo Mum to 3 kids - Jordan (23), Grace (21) and Max (19). And Wife to my lovely Husband, Dave and step mum to 4 fur babies, our cats Eric, Ernie, Cilla and Bobbie. We live on the beautiful Isle of Wight, Hubby and I were born here, and just love our home. As I hurtle towards 50, my life as a full time (working) parent is coming to an end, with my eldest 2 kids living their own lives, and my youngest who started University in September. I realised that this is not a time to be sad, but a time to take time to spend time on some of the things I enjoy doing - mainly cooking, crafting and creating Pinterest boards for said thing s :) This blog is just a way for me to record the next stages of our lives - I hope you enjoy my ramblings...
