Riley turns 6! πŸ₯³πŸŽˆ

I honestly just can’t believe I now have a 6 year old! Where have these past 6 years gone?

Riley had the best birthday, he didn’t stop smiling and laughing. He had a lovely birthday party at his favourite play area on Saturday 23rd of February. He had a disco party as he absolutely loves dancing at the moment he doesn’t stop wiggling his bum and even twerks! He had the best time running around with all his friends, dancing and even playing games inside the play area. All the kids seemed to really enjoy themselves too. It’s always nice I think to see how the kids play when they’re not in school.

Where have the past 6 years gone? I have loved every single moment I have spent with Riley. He changed my life forever. My best friend, my angel and my very own superhero. 8lbs 2oz of gorgeousness!! What a strong beautiful funny and amazing little boy I have today.

Well Riley managed to open all his presents before he had to go to school! School on his birthday? He was so mad! He didn’t want to go at all but there wasn’t any tears thank goodness!!

I just can’t believe I have a 6 year old. I mean when Riley finished all his cancer treatments it literally felt like I was starting with a new born baby. But he had just turned 3 and now he’s 6! I just can’t believe it! Really couldn’t be more proud of him!! Absolutely love him all this world and so much more.

Happy Birthday to my darling Riley. I love you so very much. x x x x x x

Slimming World | Week Four | #SlimmingWorld

Okay so last week I lost a lovely 2 pounds!!! Yeeey I was so happy and definitely planned for another loss this week too but, how I failed this week…

So I bought more slimming world meals on the Saturday morning, ready for my week ahead I knew what I was having. But, Riley started to feel unwell in the afternoon. He was sick, then the diarrhoea started. After he was sick he felt better but he was sleeping a lot that afternoon so I still decided I was going to go out for a meal and cinema like I’d planned.

I went to go to Glass! Wouldn’t waste your time btw.

As soon as I got home I went to check in Riley, as I always do. Riley had had an accident in his sleep, the smell was terrible! After changing his bed and giving him a wash. I was awake most the night, humming and aaarrring weather or not to ring 111 and get some advice. I decided to sleep on it and ring them in the morning…

The Sunday morning he wasn’t much better. He wasn’t eating only drinking, the sickness and diarrhoea was still there and he looked so pale. I decided to ring 111 and get advice. They told me to get to the hospital A&E within the hour. Obviously I was emotionally eating! My sister bless her brought me food to keep me going but because I was tired I just wanted to say rubbish so I did.

Turned out Riley had a terrible bug. Didn’t send him to school Monday and Tuesday. So I carried on eating rubbish followed by more rubbish and more rubbish! Sugar drinks the lot. Anything to keep my energy up because I was just so tired!

Wednesday I didn’t feel that great I was light headed so more sugar drinks and chocolate was my only answer.

Then Thursday I was blessed with my star week. So as you can imagine I’ve had a rubbish week. Urgh.

Sooooooooo… this week the scales said… I had put 1.5lbs ON!

Which I was expecting.

This week I’m going to try my best to get that off and a little more! I’m going to plan ahead. Plan my meals. Plan my snacks. Plan everything I can! I’m going to really push myself.

Wish me luck!!

First Day Back To School 2019 | January βœ¨

Riley went back to school yesterday!

I actually set my alarm early to get up and ready before waking Riley up so I was verrrrry organised this morning which is one of my new year resolutions!

I woke him up and told him it was time to go back to school and he burst into tears, saying he didn’t want to leave me. Actually made me abit upset tbh. He gets so used to been at home with me and coco when school breaks up for holidays.

Once we got to school and he saw his friends he was obviously fine.

He managed to have a good day and even did PE outside for a while.

As he was so good his Auntie Alice treated us to Pizza Hut for tea which is his favourite! Who’s favourite tea isn’t pizza!

With me doing slimming world I got a flat bread pizza with lots of salad and it was lovely! Counting my syns for the next two days with that. So I will see what the scales say to me on Friday…. wish me luck!

So its back to the school runs, back to making small talk with the mummies. Haha.

πŸŽ„ Blogmas | Day 22 | 3 more days till Christmas. #blogmas

Can you believe it is only 3 more days until Christmas? I can’t!

I have so much wrapping to still do! I’ve not even wrapped half of Riley’s yet let alone my families. So think I will be definitely still wrapping Christmas Eve!!!

I won a photo shoot earlier this December so I picked to have a 3 generation photo shoot with me Riley and my mum. We had our hair and make up done too! Was so nice to have somebody else do my makeup for a change. Wish I would have done my own eyebrows though as the MUA artist only filled in my eyebrows but I prefer them to be popping!

We managed to get some lovely pictures though. Riley wanted to get them all but I didn’t want to be spending loadsssss!!

Have you finished wrapping yet? 🎁

πŸŽ„ Blogmas | Day 21 | Not long now until Santa comes #blogmas

Riley has finally broken up for Christmas! I feel like I can get into the Christina’s spirit now.

Does anybody else keep seeing toys and that for your kids at the shop and buying more and more? Please tell me I’m not the only one!πŸ€¦πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ

Christmas came early for Riley today and my wonderful bestie and his little mates. Seeing all their faces light up and be excited for presents could put any scroogeeeeee in the mood for Christmas.

For any pink gin lover this Christmas I would have definitely recommend getting them a personalised sticker for the gin bottle! My friend loved hers! I got mine from eBay and came in no time! You can find some lovely personalised things on eBay for Christmas.

I’ve started wrapping little presents. I need to make a massive start this weekend or I’ll get to Christmas Eve and I’ll still be wrapping presents!

Going to get into the Christmas spirit but stuffing my face with a Chinese tonight with all the trimmings!!!
