Busy, stressful couple of weeks…

So its been a little while since I posted so will try to keep it short and sweet but a lots happened.
Kayleigh came back from holiday with a gross infected finger, which we had to pop, drain and then went to buy her Peppa Pig plasters as she was brave.
Then hubby went out for his best mates birthday night out and his mate knocked hubbys phone out of hos hands and it smashed! So we had to spend £90 to fix it again!


Peyton has also cut 4 teeth over the past couple of weeks and them coming through are hurting her a little bit.

Then we tried to get her walking shoes as shes now walking but in Clarks she’s not even a 2 yet (and Clarks walkers start at a 3) so had to go to Mothercare to get her some, they start at a 2 there and fit well.

We then had some beautiful weather so I had to go and buy the girls sun hats and glasses, although Peytons glasses didn’t last long.


We also bought a big family sized paddling pool for us during the summer! At first Peyton wasn’t the biggest fan but soon warmed up to it.



We also indulged in some ice-cream fun during the nicer weather.



Then this tuesday just gone I had to have an endoscopy and because I was being sedated my Nan and Grandad had the girls overnight for me (& then took them to the farm park the next day). The endoscopy itself was fine, I think I “slept” through it lol, but a bit of a sore throat after. They also found that I have a Hiatus Hernia which may need to be looked at as well as my gallstones. I’m being referred to a surgeon.


Then on the Wednesday I enjoyed a relaxing day to myself, I picked up the girls at about 3:30pm and went round my mums at about 4pm… She instantly whinged that we were “late” round. She then didn’t talk to me for about 45minutes and I just played with the girls. Then she came in ranting and raving about me being distant or something and I walked out, giving her the key on my way out… I just cant be bothered with the stress anymore! On a positive note though I lost 2.5lbs on my first week at weightwatchers.


My week…

So this week has been very busy. Monday i spent the day with my Grandparents, and they babysat overnight as I was supposed to have an endoscopy that next morning. I left the girls there that night and met Jai from work. When I got there their alarm was going off, they couldn’t get hold of the local police to say it wasn’t a break in and not to come out so they had armed Police arrive to check on them.
The next morning we went to what we thought was my endoscopy appointment but it appeared it was a misunderstanding and that he thought it was a second opinion. He agreed and said we’d do the endoscopy and an ultrasound to check for Gallstones etc. I managed to get an appointment for the ultrasound tomorrow morning and had to wait for a date for the endoscopy.
Then the ultrasound the next day showed that I have lots of very big Gallstones in my Gallbladder which is most likely causing my pains. It appears I’d most likely need surgery to remove my gallbladder to get rid of the pain. Later than evening my dad got upset with me, although I had to hear it from my mum. The girls had used my phone to call him by accident and when he called back I explained this. He was funny because I never mentioned my upcoming surgery. It was nothing personal but he didn’t call me back when i explained this.
My mum was also super selfish this week and stayed down the caravan when she knew that Kayleigh was going down with my Grandparents over the weekend. Kayleigh was sick at school just before she went away too, but seems it was just the excitement.
On friday my mum text me to have a go at me for telling my Grandparents she was down there.. I never said anything and am fed up of being accused and constantly stuck in the middle 😦

Meeting my Godson..

The day after Peyton’s party we went down to Bristol to meet my cousin baby boy Leo. He was so cute and adorable. I got a lot of cuddles and got to fees him. Both of our girls loved him too. They did get rather jealous when Daddy held Leo.




She’s since told us that he is getting christened in June and that she wants me to be his Godmother 🙂

Peytons party..

So last weekend, 3rd May, we had Peytons rearranged party. A month after her actual birthday because of them having chicken pox. It was a really fun day, our house was filled to the brim, at the max we had 35 people there (11 of those being children). Peyton started off her party with tears, but as the saying goes “it’s my party and i’ll cry if I want to!”

Peyton fell asleep almost straight away when she had cuddles from Great Aunty Louise.

Kayleigh had a brilliant time playing with all the children.





Then there was the food.. My mum made the cakes for us, I made the cupcakes and she helped me to ice them.



Then we did a buffet style food table for everyone to eat.

I did a lot of work on decorating for the party too. I did a balloon caterpillar around the doorframe.

Then I made a caterpillar with Peyton’s monthly stats on it.

Peyton enjoyed eating buffet style food.

Then we sang Happy Birthday to Peyton, blew out the candle and ate birthday cake.


Me and Jai also got cuddles with his niece who is 7 weeks younger than Peyton!


Then later on Jai made us some balloon creations.. A flower and a butterfly.
