Family time … Boxing Day fun..

I hope you all had a good Christmas Day.

We woke late went to visit Mum in law to exchange gifts, then back home to find youngest (had finally) woken 😉 Hubby made smoked salmon and scrambled eggs on toasted muffins and then we opened gifts.



An hour at the pub, (Youngest left us at this point, after a pint) then back home for cold cuts,  pickled, cheeses and crackers – a glass of malt whisky and rubbish TV – bliss…


Today, however, will be a lot busier 🤗 Our daughter and boyfriend, Youngest and his girlfriend are all over for Christmas Mark ll.  More gifts and a buffet style meal 😍


Cold Chicken, gammon, fat slices of Gala pie, salad, cheeses, pickles all kinds.

Homemade Meringues and shop bought Ameretto cheesecake for pud, with mince pies ,  biscuits and sweets to fill gaps 😜


We will play board games, have a few drinks, catch up on gossip and above all, relax, it is so rare to get time together without one of us having to rush off somewhere.

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...
