no bizness i know!

Hey hey there bloggeroo's (channelling Ned Flanders from The Simpsons there)
First of all apologies, my i on my keyboard is broke, so i am copying and pasting it


i decided that i'd write a wee review this week, no - i did not get any money for it, and it's more of a recommendation than a review.

As most of you parents know soft play areas are HELL, or is that just me!? i always find that there are loads of kids running around, screaming, getting hurt, etc. (i know kind of the point, right?) but this means its always REALLY busy, and Rachel finds it hard to enjoy herself.

We decided instead of going to the big adventure today we'd head to Braehead and go to Monkey Bizness The price on the door seems expensive, i'll give you that, but the prices for the food and drink made up for it by a long shot

i got cake - huge slice of chocolate cake, pot of tea, large jug of cordial juice (they said it had 10 glasses in it but it has way more, Rachel drank 8 glasses and it was only half empty!) and it was the princley sum of £5!

i sat on a nice red leather sofa, took my shoes off and sat there, rachel returned and asked to have a shot on a rock climbing wall, so off i went, fully expecting it to cost yet more money, as most things in kids places tend to, nope included in the price.

You can stay there as LONG as you like, so we stayed for 4 hours, all in it cost me £14.00 not too bad considering 2 hours at the big adventure has cost me MUCH more than that.

i loved the place, with the couches, it had bean bags too, for kids and adults to sit on you just grab one from the corner. i felt comfortable and relaxed, read my book and the staff were on the ball, they kept the kids under control, no mean feat when there's loads of them.

Can not recommend this place enough, will be going back without a shadow of a doubt!

i have never recommended anything, especially not soft play.

i may take pictures next time!

until later xxx

It's time to relax

So, first of all, two blog posts in a week, aren't you lucky?


What's going through my head? This


I've had an utterly exhausting day, so I decided I'd chill out and relax

so I decided

A nice cup of tea



and my footspa where in order, yes I know I'm a wee bit middle aged




I'm also wearing my Pyjamas (they're grey jogging types, no picture sadly)

I'm also watching terrible TV, which consists of beauty and the geek

and in case you're wondering - which i doubt, the thing in my background is this



Its shaun the sheep, it's a footstool and it's FREAKING awesome, It's a bit dirty, cause I use it loads, but I love it

So what do you enjoy relaxing with?

Cat Tastrophe

Firstly, I'd like to apologise, I've not updated since November, had some rather pressing personal issues, so my poor blog got neglected. I'm sorry blog, I do love you, honest.

Then today, I was reminded why I love Blogging by Lisa Hughes Lisa has just made her blog all pretty, it's very much like her, lots of cake and tea. I am a fan of both cake, and tea.

So...What have I been up to?

Well alot actually. I made some cake for my friends birthday, with fake cream filling, which was fun to make



and then I headed off to her birthday party where I had a rather lot to drink...





Not all my booze, but a selection of booze


I also saved a sparrows life, hence the blog title, my little monster cat caught a sparrow and it wasnt dead, i let it go free. Hooray for sparrow saving!

I also applied for a job, with the RAF, I'm actually a little terrified, why? Because you need to be SUPER fit, It's avionics mechanic job, I'm just about to send away my application form, just need to hit submit, just building up my courage first. Cough! This is the role I am looking at, at the moment, scary stuff.

So, again I can only apologise for my tardy blogness, it's been a tough few months, but I do have you lovely people and my blog to keep me from going nuts.

until next update, take care folks.
