3 is a magic number

Good morning

Just a quick post before another busy day happens - work, nephews birthday and dance practise. Does seem life is rather busy as the moment - lots of lovely things to look forward to mixed with some domestic stuff and more house alterations.

The week started relatively quietly - time on Tuesday afternoon to go and get a new tattoo done - I've wanted a 3rd one for a while but couldn't decide what. However doodling with henna over the summer I kept doing the same thing - 3 hearts - one for me and one for each boy. I took my doodle into the shop and explained what I wanted and here's what I went for;

Its on the inside of my wrist and I love it - I know these aren't everyones cup of tea but heck the world would be a boring place if we all liked the same things or didn't do something because others might disapprove!! No it didn't hurt - odd as I am normally a complete wuss with pain/needles.

The weekend saw a very sudden switch between seasons - summer on Sunday morning so plans for lunch in the garden were made. Just as we finished eating the seasons switched from summer to autumn and we hurried indoors from the rain!!

Am thinking at the current rate, we'll be having a roast this summer rather than a lovely picky buffet lunch!

Monday saw Big Son go back to school for his final year of school. Unlike his smaller brother he was happy to have his photo taken - even reminding me it needed doing. Thinking one day of finding all the back to school pics and making a collage of them;

We are taking this giant boy on his first Uni visit this weekend - it means an early start but the course is so very him that the 4.30am start will be worth it. More visits are being planned to others places. Not sure how I will feel next year when he leaves home - he's so useful to have around - so often saving me having to get a ladder out!!

Right time for work - hoping for less nutters than yesterday!

See you soon

Hello Vicky, I'm not usually fan of tattoos, but your is lovely and very special to you ...

Good luck visiting the universities, we've just dropped Harry off to start his Uni journey ... not an easy thing to do, but it's us that suffer with the separation not them! In my experience anyway ...

Have a lovely day sweetie

Love Claire xxx

Love the new tattoo, did it hurt? I know wrist and ankle can be sore! I have a tattoo on my upper arm and love it, my mum said I'd regret it when I had it done but 11yrs on I still love it and keep thinking of having another one but can't decide what or where, so am still thinking about it.

I really like the look of your tattoo.

I LOVE your tattoo! What a pretty design and such beautiful colours, even better that it means something personal to you :-) People can be funny over tattoos, but I'm all for a bit of individuality and love my little tattoo.

We noticed the weather change on Sunday and for drenched! I do love the autumn, so I'm not sad that the evenings are drawing in and colours changing.

Ooh, University places! Exciting times ahead for all of you.
Hope you have a nutter free day!! xx

I have been very lucky re. Uni choices made by my lot, they have all opted to stay local.

Gosh, your boys really are growing up fast, aren't they? Can't believe my William has started year 9 now - seems only yesterday I was taking him into Reception for his first day at 'big school'!

I'm not a fan of tattoos as a rule, but I think yours is really pretty. No danger of me getting one, though - I'm already stressing about having a typhoid injection next Monday!! x
