Keep On Swimming!

It’s Monday again… How did that happen?!

Been a busy weekend for us. What with Pop’s Birthday and things I knew it would be mad, but certain things you can’t anticipate! I forgot, for a start, that we were meant to be going visiting with the in-laws on Saturday, so my beautifully laid plans for this weekend went out the window! 

Then Lil Man went for his first Cricket training… Amd he totally smashed it! The coach was amazed at his leftie bowling talent, and requested he be signed up for the team to play this coming Friday! He was invited for a one to one nets training session on the Sunday, so we duly went to the shops on Sunday morning to kit him up. Whites bought and his first box! How funny! 

But cricket trousers come with the hem undone, so I would need to hem them before Friday.

The nets went brilliantly… So brilliantly they asked that he be signed up immediately,and play on Monday, as in tonight!!

No pressure!!!

So, trousers hemmed, kit ready for his first match. Just hope that it doesn’t rain, and the match gets cancelled. He is so excited!

It’s also the last week before half term…


I can always tell we are due a holiday as my energy starts to flag, the kids at home and school start getting rattier and rattier. It hasn’t helped that I forgot my Vitamin D tablets recently, and I’ve been flaking out so early in the evenings.

But…


I have a little secret…

I can’t be more specific at the moment. But needless to say, these holidays are going to be a week to remember for a very positive reason!

It may mean I am a little indisposed for few days, challenge entire may be delayed, but they will be done!

I’m so excited! 

And I’ll share very soon!!!

Have a wonderful Monday Peeps!

    Enjoy the week. Still scratching my head on how cricket works. Not sure we have an equivalent over here.

    Sis, I take a deep bow! You are so busy but still take the time to share your business with us. And it is wonderful with what you were busy! Congratulations to Lil Man. I am so happy for another big success! That again will give him so much after the struggles with SAT. So happy for my talented nephew! And I cannot wait to hear more about your holidays! Sounds already very exciting πŸ˜„

    Ah cricket. Music to my ears. I look forward to watching At Lords as the commentators say ‘And Bhathal turns and comes into bowl from the nursery end… And that’s out! England have won the Ashes!!!’

        Lol!!!!
        Well he was so close on a couple of occasions, to be selected for the England U19’s team, when he played for Warwickshire, and injury to his back prevented that.
        Now he’s back into the spirt, here’s hoping he gets the recognition he deserves!!!
        We are a cricket family so Lil Mans talent is definitely something to celebrate!
        His Daddy was also a player, with Gravesham, and has been Asked to start again.
        So less Soccer Mom, and more Cricket Mother/Widow, possibly!!!!
        Lil Man’s match got cancelled yesterday due to traffic and no one being able to arrive at the pitch!So training tonight and a small tournament on Friday to sort out now!!

        Poor you. Did you learn to score. Linda always took her sewing if she ever watched me.

    Hemming cricket trousers – lovely! My dad was a keen cricketer and we used to watch him every week throughout the summer holidays. I’m old-fashioned about cricket though and love the white trousers and jumpers!

Shit Stevie Says

Good Shit, bad shit, funny shit, sad shit. Maybe I'll inspire you! Or maybe I won't... Perhaps I'll talk about worldly matters, or maybe my not so subtle obsession with aliens, or (if you're really lucky) I just might one day give insight on how to make the worlds best sandwich. Guess you'll only find out if you read. So sit back, grab a glass of wine (because there is a 100% chance I indulged in one while writing), and enjoy. Welcome to the enigma that is my brain. My name is Stevie Jackson, and I have shit to say.
