Me & Mine {April}

Jess McGlynnApril 30, 2015

I know I say this every month but feel like I’ve had my head in a hole for the past 4 weeks…it took me completely by surprise that it was Me & Mine today.  I can’t believe it!  We’ve had a crazy busy month and I don’t think it is going to get any easier with so many things in the calendar over the next few weeks.

On the one hand I love when we are out and about, seeing friends and family and having a good time but sometimes when we don’t actually get to sit down until late it can get a bit exhausting.  James has been working longs hours this month as well so we have been more like passing ships in the night. I miss my husband! 

Thankfully he has booked some time off towards the end of May so we can escape for a few days of much needed R&R. I can’t wait.

But back to this month. We have loved:-

*Easter fun.
*Finding out that Eli got a place in our first choice school.
*Getting the cover for my book which is now only a few weeks away from being released!
*Celebrating James’ birthday with family.

I hadn’t actually planned on using this picture for April but as I didn’t even twig it was the end of the month we hadn’t managed to take anything else. It was from our wonderful day out at Brockholes which I just cannot recommend enough to anyone local; such a fantastic place to wear the kids out (and who doesn’t want that?!)

I also thought I would include this rather special photo. Unfortunately the children aren’t in it but we got together with James’ family to celebrate his birthday with a murder mystery party and I love how much everyone got into the spirit of it. I am definitely putting this one up on my wall (as much as I think several members of the family might want to hurt me for it!)

So that’s our month.  Just round the corner is Eli’s birthday, then Meg’s and then finally mine…and then we can breathe a sigh of relief. For a short time anyway.

I hope everyone else has had a great month.

dear beautiful
