Long nights approaching.
Summer holidays are approaching and Emi and Theo are spending every other week with their dadda(Theo still refuses to call him just dad lol), leaving me a bit lost. My Mr will be back for a few weeks between now and September, which we're all very excited about and i feel lots of planning is needed in order to keep us all from boredom this summer.
I have this humungous garden that needs tending to and a house that quite frankly could do with an amazing summer clean, top to bottom, however, i need to keep from the boredom that looms over me in the evenings. With the Mr so far away I can get awfully lonely and bored and i feel my blog has taken a back seat. So were back with a vengence and I feel I now have the right mindset to give it my whole attention (well after the children and Mr are sorted ofc!)
4000 miles is an amazing distance and I spend my down time in the evenings wondering how wonderful it'll be when he's finally home. I miss him like no one can imagine and would love the ability to fly, just so I could spend half an hour a night giving him a cuddle.
Emi has taken to him as much as i have and she's so sweet, has him wrapped around her little finger just like her daddy and big brother.
It's hard to believe in 3 months Emi is 4!! just seems like yesterday Theo was that age. Come Feb Theo will be 7!! Oh my, hard to believe I have a child of that age lol!! Time for another I think ;)
They have an amazing bond between them and don't get me wrong, some days they fight a bit but mostly it's all cuddles and 'I love you's' couldn't ask for a better pair of kiddywinks.
Moving slightly back to the garden, we have this god awful tree that has ivy growing everywhere and grass and prickles sky high, when we moved here it was in a worse for wear state and I've slowly managed to prune it back a bit, however, after the amount of rain this year has given us already it's back to square one. Luckily I have a new lawnmower and strimmer and I'm determined( as soon as the rain stops pouring) to get back into it and make it beautiful again. Now the next challenge is patio furniture and pretty summer lanterns to get up to scratch with the summer trend.
The house is another matter entirely and it needs room by room emptying and cleaning, these old houses have dust that falls ever day and it is a nightmare to keep up with!!
All in all, summer is set to be a very busy, emotional, lonely at times one and i'm ready with mower, mop and a set of tissues for all it has to give me!
