An all that Jazz…

Wow what a few hectic weeks we have had, after what seemed like the longest Easter break ever, the coconuts are back at School. Now as much as I adore my mini monsters, I am a creature of routine (Call me Jane Fonda if you please!) I absolutely treasure spending quality time with them, but towards the end of the last week of the two and a half weeks break, I am ready for a bit of normality. Sounds awful doesn’t it, but I will put my life on it all the mummy’s are nodding in agreement. So we are back to 7am starts and 8pm bedtimes, Must point out 9pm for Isabella, don’t want to cramp her style now she’s twelve! From trips to the city to visit the museum’s, Isabella’s show with her theatre company at Liverpool’s Empire, trips to the park, cinema and everything in between, the coconuts have had a brilliant half term. I have captured some of my favourite moments in pictures, one particular stand out moment for me was when we took them on the Liverpool eye (Not sure if this is even the correct name for the Liverpool version, but it’s like the London eye, but here so?) Anyway, Sonny almost burst out of his skin with excitment ‘Looooook Mama, Look at the city’ ‘Woahhhh we’re flying!!!’ We were crying with laughter, you could feel his excited energy vibrating through his little body. Such a lovely memory. I am actually half giggling now thinking of it. Isabella had a fantastic showcase at Liverpool’s Empire theatre, the theatre is one of my favourite places. My mum was a performing arts teacher when I was growing up, so I spent a lot of my free time at the theatre and with artists, It’s such a fantastic way of expressing yourself and I love to get lost in a good performance. We were all very proud of her and the company did great. The little chica turned twelve on the 12th, we let her decide what she would like to do, so she chose to go the trafford centre in Manchester to go to her favourite restaurant and spend some of her birthday money. We had a lovely evening, but I still find myself having to pinch myself that I have a twelve year old, who is up to my chin already. So surreal! As I’m writing this I’m listening to Ed Sheerans cover of ‘No Diggity’ by Blackstreet. If you haven’t heard this youtube it now. So so good. Also Loving The Lumineers album, Simply gorgeous.

I love our city, so much culture, history and humour. It’s so lovely to be a ‘tourist’ in your home town. Really makes you appreciate where you’re from.
