It's my life, but not as I knew it!

Monday
1) Uni
It was quite a hard-going day at uni today, but that doesn’t mean I’m not grateful for going to uni and get paid to retrain. It is an amazing opportunity for me and I am not going to waste it. Being able to take what I loved from my nursing career and merge it with the hours that are the best for my family and me is something I am so lucky to be able to do.
You guys may need to remind me of this post next time an essay is due!!!

2)Flip Flops
I love flip flops, I would wear them all year round if I could! And this weather is perfect flip flop weather. Plus they remind me of one of my favourite jokes- what do you call a Frenchman in sandals? Phillipe Fillop!!!!

3) Gelato!
Uni days are shorter than work days so I was home in time to take my little family out for a gelato. Being a true Italian Rob loves Gelato (note I said Gelato, not ice cream) and we also go out for it on his birthday and other special occasions. Today wasn’t special for any other reason than we were out together!

4) Reins
This may be a controversial post as I know there are plenty of people out there who are very against child-reins and I respect your opinions. BUT I have two toddlers and live spitting distance from some of the busiest streets in the country, so for safety’s sake we use reins on the twins. Plus Biscuit is such an independent little soul that she doesn’t always like holding hands, so the reins mean she is still attached to us. My mum and dad have the old fashioned reins from Boots which are dead sweet. We have the backpack version, as I think they’ll be useful for carrying their little bits and pieces when they’re a little older.

5) Quick Cuddles In The Bath
I love getting in the bath with the twinkles and having cuddles. I quickly jumped in with Cracker whilst Biscuit was being dried. We had cuddles, he did my hair (!!!) and ‘helped’ me wash myself (he likes the bubbles). I love those times with them, as they get older I know I’ll have less opportunity to do it. I am making the most of it now!

Night night all.
