3 b's

Back to school
Back to work
Back to blogging

Can't believe how fast the past 3 weeks have flown by.  It has been productive, I've done quite a bit of work in, to and around the house. You know, the kind of things you never quite get around to doing or if you are me put of doing. I painted the laundry (I'll do a post on that later). I sorted out cupboards, and threw out tons of stuff and killed more spiders than I ever thought possible. It is shocking how much junk one tends to accumulate. We have now been living in our house for 5½ years (the longest we have ever lived anywhere).

Other than wanting to kill the kids a couple of times during these 3 weeks it was rather nice spending so much time with them (mostly when they were sleeping).  They go from being best friends one moment to near killing each other the next. If only they didn't feel the need to try and involve me the whole time it would have been more bearable. My mother always used to say, 'I don't care if you fight, just do do it quietly, I don't want to hear you.' Man can I relate!

The kids have been dying to go back to school for the past weeks so I had no problems getting them up and ready to go this morning however I'm pretty sure that it will be a totally different story come tomorrow morning.


Cat is also counting down the days, she'll be 11 on Thursday, (I can't believe I'll have an 11 year old kid, I'm not nearly old enough!).

I've got loads to do at work but I'm going to try and catch up with everyone's blogs over the next week or so ... hope you all had a great summer.


  1. You know your summer was long enough when you don't have to physically drag your kids out of bed to get them going for school the first day! I love their back to school outfits - they're so trendy. Did you guys go shopping?

  2. They are adorable. Happy to see a post from you! Cheers to a great year!

  3. I love these pictures!! Such cute kids. Sounds like you had a productive time off. I need one of those staycations myself!

  4. Your kids! So cute and so stylish!
