Happy Saturday one and all! Isn't it nice to see the sun shining again? It certainly makes everything seem a bit brighter. Although, it is 100% that time of year now when whatever outfit you choose to wear is wrong and you either end up mafting or freezing - there is no middle ground. T … Continue reading Setting the date.
“Pretty good odds” to prevent the one armed man.
Hi! I hope everyone is well. My plea for 2023 to sort it's shit out hasn't really gone to plan so far, albeit things are beginning to look a bit brighter as we leave February behind (or F***y February as I have affectionately coined it this year). Just after our last update we received the … Continue reading “Pretty good odds” to prevent the one armed man.
Pox, Plague and Purple Legs
HAPPY NEW YEAR FROM THE RILEYS!!! We hope you had the most magical of times. We did. We had one of the loveliest Christmas's I think we've ever had. It was full to the brim with smiles, laughter, family, some questionable knock off Amaretto and lot's and lot's of love. Before you all start being … Continue reading Pox, Plague and Purple Legs
Child In Need – no indeed.
Well, in the immortal words of Ozzy and Kelly Osborne - we're going through changes. Mainly the new giant chuff-off hole in the middle of our hallway: Giant chuff-off hole. So, you know, that's fun. Especially when you have a toddler who thinks he's in the SAS. Ant Middleton could learn a thing or two … Continue reading Child In Need – no indeed.

So, strap yourselves in for a catch up of epic proportions! Firstly, WE GOT ON A PLANE AND WENT ON HOLIDAY. For … Continue reading Teenage kicks and Positive Pants
60 degrees too far.
Hello, and 'Happy New Year'! (I'm aware that I'm about 37 days late with that one, but the sentiment is there) Since our last update, a fair bit has happened.

The reason for this has been two fold: Life has been absolutely CHUFFING MENTAL of late In all honesty, I've really been struggling recently It all started towards the end … Continue reading The sun always rises in the morning.
The start of a new road… not to Debenhams.
Strap yourselves in Ladies and Gents, this is gonna be a long one! Over 2 months since our last update. I didn't actually realise that much time had passed... but 'time' seems to have taken on new meaning since Covid hit. One minute I'm in lockdown eating Easter eggs, then I blinked, and now its … Continue reading The start of a new road… not to Debenhams.
The ASDA delivery man winked at me this morning. I wouldn't have minded, but I was stood in my Harry Potter dressing gown, he was about 80, and he was also trying to walk into my house to pass me a bag of shopping. "I'm ok if you are love!" *wink* Erm. Actually, I'm not … Continue reading Lockdown Life.
Carol Vorderman is my hero, but a fall can derail your day.
We sacked off home schooling today. Sorry to T’s teachers who will read this 😬 The day started well. Bit of Maths Factor (thank you Carol Vorderman you absolute Goddess and maths legend) and T completed a new topic. But, he then stood up and had a nasty fall in his room... which resulted in … Continue reading Carol Vorderman is my hero, but a fall can derail your day.
