A Lovely Half-term....

The kids have been off school this week so my Word of the Week has to be....


If my brain was working properly I could probably think of a better word but after spending the week with my girls I seem to have lost the power to think....lol We have had a lovely Half-Term.....It has been fantastic to have a break from school, the early mornings and the school run. 

We haven't really done much but it has been nice doing nothing....

Monday we had a trip to the dentists....Two years ago it was said Becky needed braces.....We saw an orthodontist who agreed but said they won't do anything until she had lost her last baby tooth....We've been waiting about 16 months for a new appointment....Our normal dentist sent us to see the owner of the dental practice to see about getting something done.....She is going to have words and get us an appointment in the next few weeks....The one local to us is the best one and to be honest I don't want to be traveling to Newcastle every few weeks which is an hour away on the bus which would mean Becky missing school which I wouldn't be happy about and I don't think the school would be too....

Tuesday it was all about Pancakes.....The girls had them for breakfast and tea then again for lunch on Wednesday....lol 

On Wednesday the money was returned to my bank that was taken out last week when someone had got my card details I was so relieved....Becky was supposed to go out with her boyfriend and his family but he wasn't very well so they rearranged for today.....He did give her a ring yesterday and they chatted for about half an hour....So sweet!

Yesterday was a Pj day.....I had a plan....If I played with the kids all morning I could just let them watch films all afternoon and I would get some time for blogging without feeling guilty....It worked...hehehe

Today we're going to the pub....lol I said because Becky is going out for the day with her boyfriend I would take Ellie out.....She wants to go to our local Weatherspoon pub for lunch....That's fine with me! I'm so glad she never thought of going to the Soft Play center....lol

    Sorry to hear about the fraudulent activity on your card, this happened to one of my friends last week too, thankfully you spotted it and sorted it out,what a nightmare.
    Apart from this it sounds like you had a lovely half-term with the girls.
