If the state of hardware on your garage door is in this state of deterioration, then don’t be surprised that door stops working and the opener is burnt out. Your door also needs some occasional TLC
This is the ‘Sway Shawl’ I started a couple of days ago. It’s coming together nicely but the ‘sway’ does unnerve me slightly. However, according to the pattern it’s supposed to do that, hence the name, and everything will work out in the end 👀🤞🏼
In other news, I was woken up at 7am this morning by a huge commotion going on in one of the birch trees in the garden. It was caused by two magpies, who have a nest in the tree, three crows and a wood pigeon. I assumed the crows were trying to raid the nest however, something else caught my eye. It turned out to be a neighbour’s cat who fancied his chances re the nest but didn’t bank on a possè of angry birds joining forces and preparing to defend the nest to the death. It was stuck and meowing pathetically so I dragged the longest pair of ladders I could find to the tree and proceeded to climb up in my PJs - not a pretty sight 😳 Anyway, long story short, as I approached the cat it decided to slither down the ivy which grows up the tree and took off across the garden leaving me 15 feet up said tree with 6 irate birds determined to take their anger out on anything that moved. Thankfully though I escaped with everything intact and lived to tell the tale. Animals!! 😡😹

Sometimes life ain't all rosy and that's the case from yesterday until this morning: non-stop snotty expulsion #notaprettysight
Pardon me for the visual but I thought it's wise to document the bad among lots of good. This is literally my view from the bed when I turn to my right. Can't wait to get better soon *ugh* #nzig #ignz #instanz #iphonenz #meremakeupmaniac
So dam hot we had to run through the sprinkler. If only we had friends with a swimming pool we wouldn't look so stupid #notaprettysight
I am so glad I had these two oils diffusing when we came home from school pick up yesterday!
Judah managed to slam the car door on Lottie's leg. Cue tears from everyone.
Walking into the house and smelling this calming blend made both their meltdowns last barely a minute 🙌
Now if only I had these two oils with me as I ran/power waddled with 2 kids in the pouring rain from the hospital to the car #ontheothersideofthecarpark
I was not feeling much peace or calm once I got in the car wet from head to toe 🙈
I'd love to help you get these oils in your life so that tired children mealtdowns are manageable and unfortunate events are made bearable (afterwards...). Please send me a message or follow the instructions in my How To Enrol video series in my profile ❤️
How do women go to the gym with full makeup and their hair done all cute and come out looking the same? I go in looking a hot mess with no makeup and my hair pulled up however I managed in the car, and come out looking worse than I started. I could try to make my hair look cute and slap on some makeup but let’s be honest, it’s pointless. I’m a sweater. Always have been. I can’t get through a workout without looking like a wet t-shirt contest gone wrong. Maybe that’s just my genetics and I’m just screwed with the sweating gene. If I take a picture to post of myself after workout like these girls I’ve seen, I have to use one of the filters just to make myself look semi presentable. Don’t confuse this as me complaining. I’m just trying to understand how they do it!! Someone tell me the secret! Lol

So I did have a before picture of this one but decided not to post it... this was a dress that was too tight and too short so you’re welcome for sparing everyone the “before” picture 🤣😂 #notaprettysight
Cut short, hemmed, custom bleached and poms added and the dress has become a cute red and blue top... perfect for the 4th of July or for the Tech girls!
Red & Blue Pom Top😍$30. Size: XS. To purchase comment SOLD and DM me your email address.🇺🇸
So proud of my banana muffins guys!! 🙌🏻💖♨️ Attempted making banana bread the other day but it didn't work out... all bc I made a silly mistake of not putting baking soda in 😅😱🤣 #notaprettysight
Hey, at least now I'll never forget to put baking soda in amirite?! 💁🏼♀️ Anywho these muffins are so delicious and they actually bake pretty quick in like 10 min compared to banana bread which takes about an hour. Side note- I like how my muffins have totally different colors from the editing in all 3 photos... 😂😂 #itsfine

At some point we thought laying decking over decking was a great idea, can’t remember why... 🤔🤔 anyway it’s all coming up (after several years) so many woodlice and centipedes in between 😩 we’re having new decking put down once this has been ripped up, can’t wait to sit out here when it’s done! #notaprettysight #garden
First post & it’s not a pretty one for the eye & I’m rather embarrassed I managed to get to this stage in my life before. I’ve done it before - I’ll do it again. Throw back to 2015 - My absolute heaviest I have ever been in my life at 11st 4 😳 & down to 9st 8 in just 4 months.
After having so much going on all at once & making no time for exercise (yet time to make excuses) & craving chocolate by the share bar fulls. I weighed myself last Thursday & weighed 11st 3 1/4!
Enough is enough! With our first family holiday abroad as a family of four in October creeping in, I do not want to feel uncomfortable in myself or my clothes.
I must admit I seem to have carried the weight way better this time than that in the first photo but even so. It’s time for change.
I promise to hopefully not bore you all that decided to follow me 😂🙊 but I feel that if I post my progress & know people are watching my progress that I will actually need to stick to it - no excuses.
