OK 32 now - perhaps its time to grow up??? No I think not.

Seriously though Thursday is a big day for me, I am not going to go into detail but I am pretty sure it's gonna be one of those life changing moments - The ones I usually try and subconsciously sabotage. Please wish me luck for this...... And I don't mean the subconsciously sabotaging part!!!

OMG has anyone ever been to half term free swim week at their local leisure centre? Its one hour of absolute swim hell whereby you have to que to get in to be one of the lucky fifty to reinact the scene from when the titanic goes down, Thrashing about, trying to cling to the nearest float, aiming for a quiet spot getting ducked and splashed on the way.

It was too much for me and the kids who found it daunting, dodging the countless numbers of over 10's invading the smaller kids pool. And wow how vicious are lifeguards??? Never-the-less when the time came for us to be 'saved' and the hour was up, both kids cried and asked when they could come back to which my reply was 'half term next year'

And whats up with this weather?? Who stole winter?

Shit, I am 32 on Monday - thats well old.

Ethan is 6 years old tomorrow. It only seems like yesterday that he completed our family.

We have a Doctor Who party planned and he is beside himself with excitement counting the minutes.

Two gutted kids and one devastated mum, We pulled back the curtains this morning expecting there to be snow. Where is the snow??????? I was promised SNOW.

I am totally obsessed with this and I have no idea why. I am not particularly fond of being cold and I absolutely hate driving in it. But I absolutely 100% love snow. I must be the only person in the world who watches the clouds deciding if they are 'snow clouds', who stares at something dark to see if I can catch a glimpse of a white flake falling or who spends the whole week convincing the rest of the family it wont snow whilst secretly hoping it will.

I have spent the entire week being envious of my sister Natalie who has had lots of the white stuff this week. I have clicked on and off this webcam countless amounts of times as it has had lots of snow and it is not far from Natalie. And I have spent more time visiting the met office website than is healthy.

Please God let it snow, please please please. I am now off for lunch with friends but will insist on a window seat just in case a singular flake falls from nice clear blue sky. Dont judge me... Its just my thing....
