All Dressed Up …. And Yes We Did Have Somewhere To Go

Last Wednesday 12/9/2018 was one heck of a day !!  firstly it was Beloved & I’s wedding anniversary … we have been together … well since forever LOL

If that wasn’t enough of a celebration it also happened to be a very special day for 2nd Born ~ his graduation, it took place in the amazing Lincoln Cathedral

Sorry to bore yo but I’m now about to subject you to a ‘Proud Mummy Moment’ captured for prosperity

I was fighting back emotional tears during this shot PS. note my awesome vintage dress 🙂

Sorry for the photo heavy post …… NOT

3 generations
3 generation of the Von Parry family ~ even though baby ‘Fox’ is sooo totally over this photo taking business

I had to smile to myself during the ceremony ~ the graduates from the School of Education were first to grace the stage and everyone clapped politely, yet when every single one of the nurses graduated there were huge cheers & shouts from their peers and family members ~ what a awesome feeling to know my boy and his cohorts are sooo supported as they enter the big wide world

If you jump right over to here and skip to 50 mins 31 seconds (approximately LOL) you can see 2nd Born’s ‘moment’

PS Moo asked me to include this photo at the end of this post

A future graduate in the making I wonder ?

Thank you for bearing with me through out this post … you may now return to your everyday life 🙂

A Special Guest Blogger

Grandma lets my big brother Moo write on her blog now and again & she said at the grand old age of 2 months I could do my first guest post … obviously she will be doing the typing I’ll be just laying here looking adorable 🙂 Sooooo what does a babe have to post about WELL …

Lets talk sleep

no sleep
Who needs sleep ?? not me that’s for sure

Daddy has been studying for y e a r s, he’s done lots of procedures, work experience in Africa for a month and just lately been doing 3 months experience at a prison !! and now guess what ??

daddy nurse
Yep he’s only gone and done it …my daddy is now a fully qualified nurse and in a couple of months mummy will qualify too

He tells me if there is something I really, really want to do when I grow up and that if I work hard I can do it ~ isn’t that cool

Fox 2 months old
I’m listening honestly daddy, but come on, how can I take you seriously when you talk to me in that babyish high-pitched voice, even if it does make me giggle

That is my first guest post over

All my love

Fox

New Direction And A New Skill

Sorry I’ve been away for ages …forgive me ?? so just what on earth have I been up to ?? Well funny you should ask grab yourself a cuppa and I’ll explain ~ the time was right for me to take a starring role in Gelfling Grandson’s life ..tongue in cheek quote – obviously his daddy has the starring role I’m more of your best female artist

I’ve never had a clue about the plot in my life ~but that has never stopped me 🙂

I now do virtually all the school runs, Moo stays with Beloved & I a couple of nights a week depending on 2nd Born’s work placements from his nursing uni course and I have altered my working life to school hours during term time only ~apart from every other weekend. Now for the really important news  ….I have taught myself to use dpn and have embarked on my first pair of socks !!!!

heel-flap-and-gusett-first-sock
I have had an irrational fear of dpn since like forever, ~ get me learning something new LOL

I now feel like I’m leading some sort of incredible double life, learning something new AND having a youngster around  ….. which really gives you a whole new lease of life

star-wars-sesame-street
Go on ask me anything about Star Wars or Sesame Street I dare you …I have them both covered 🙂

Feeling Sad

I don’t usually do ‘serious’ posts but this is an exception, I came home from ‘ The Workplace’ this afternoon, logged on, answered a few e-mails, checked a few blogs,and as I had a moment to spare thought I’d have a quick look in on FB, I knew straight away something wasn’t right by the amount of private messages awaiting me, my account has been hacked, a VERY EXPLICIT video proclaiming to feature my good self … (AS IF !!!!!!! ) has been sent to family, friends, work colleges & goodness knows who else. I’m fortunate enough to have some trustworthy friends who reported it for me,  I’m absolutely gutted, what has someone gained by doing this ?? Did the person who did it feel it’s just a laugh & that no one will be hurt ? Well I am hurt, I’ve deactivated all my accounts & feel isolated & in tears, I may be missing quite a while until I come to terms with such cruelty
