Hello, long time no see!

Hi everyone, its been such a long time since I last wrote a post, but its such a beautiful autumn day here in Cardiff that it has inspired me to start blogging again! I have been checking on you all to keep up with everyone so its about time I pulled my finger out too!!
This lot have been keeping me busy, most school days I'm like a cart horse, carrying various lunch bags, reading bags, p.e kits etc, (why is that they all seem to read and do p.e on the same day) which normally means 3/4 bags each, obviously mum ends up carrying most of them!! One day last week Max had netball (yes boys play now) cross country, rugby training and a football match, how did he manage to do his lessons too? Louie had also started violin so yet another thing for me to lug around!! HELP!!!!
I have stopped running my own little business and since May I have been a Jamie At Home consultant, I absolutely love it. Anyone who doesnt know what this is as it still is a very new comopany (set up in March this year) Jamie Oliver has started a direct selling company! The products are fantastic and there is something for everyone, you don't have to be a fantastic cook (Im most certainly not) Here is Mason kindly modelling the childrens chef outfit!
If you havent been to a party yet I certainly suggest you try and find your local consultant and have one, Jamie comes via DVD and has a chat and shows you a recipie, its great fun!!
The host gets 15% of the total party taken to choose any thing they want from the fantastic catalogue!! If anyone is interested in joining as a consultant just leave me a comment and I'll pass your details to head office!!

Through the summer we began to renovate the garden, we have had problems with it flooding due to it being lower than everyone elses's in the road, either side of us had the same problem so raised their's leaving ours to gather everyone else's rain flow! So after waking up to the below pic Steve decided to raise ours.
He did it all himself, shifting all the top soil from front to back (our lovely neighbours all offered to help but he was happy to do it himself)
leaving us with a lovely even flat garden, its still like this as were not sure of a design yet but also thinking that whilst the boys are still kicking balls around a playing cricket prehaps its best to keep it like this for now!
We also made over the patio area its such a great size and the back of the house has been painted, it looked so dreary before it was painted!
We love it, its added another room almost to the house as we use it all the time, even on crisp cold days like today!!
