Day 168 – Sunday 16th June
Spent most of the day at the parents house. Got dad some cupcakes for fathers day and then watched the Pakistan v India cricket match. Paid for a day pass on NowTV but was a waste as Pakistan played rubbish. I had taken my laptop over to the parents house and completed a blog post about things to do in North Wales with the family.
Day 169 – Monday 17th June
Monday was Bee’s cooking club after school and she made bread rolls. They were still raw and were told to put them in the oven for another 10 mins. Was a bit worried as we weren’t going straight home but an hour later they went in the oven for longer than 10 mins and were fine. Actually tasted really nice.
Day 170 – Tuesday 18th June
Had a governor day today but as I had missed 6 weeks of kick boxing I didn’t want to miss another session. So went to my class…rushed home and had a quick shower and joined the other governors at 11.15. Didn’t take a picture of anything so its a picture of yesterdays left over chicken pasta we ended up having for dinner as I made too much yesterday!
Day 171 – Wednesday 19th June
It was my Quran class in the morning and then chilled until it was Bee’s school pick up time. Eldest had her first session as a volunteer junior police cadet and has 12 weeks of training before her ‘passing out’ ceremony. So she is now at school until 6pm on Wednesdays. . It works though as I pick up Bee from her Quran class at 5.30pm and then can drive over to pick up the eldest. Just feel like all I am doing these days is driving around.
Day 172 – Thursday 20th June
Chilled out day after my electrolysis appointment in the morning. So spent some time working on blog posts. Started working on a blog post for the new Hatchimals Pixies.
Day 173 – Friday 21st June
Hubby was home in the morning and took it upon himself to cut the grass and prune my buddleia bushes. He never usually touches the bushes as the garden generally is my domain and was horrified to see him hacking away at the bushes as they hadn’t even flowered yet. But he had a point as they were getting a bit out of control already and getting in the way. However loving all the colour in the garden already, in particular the fuchsia are my favourites. Think I have 4 different varieties at the moment.
Bee then had a fight night at her karate school. It was just a friendly with other kids from her karate school. However for some reason she was placed in a category with taller kids and she ended up hit in the face in her first fight and she cried. I wasn’t happy and wasn’t prepared for her to fight the others so we left. She is now saying she doesn’t want to enter competitions so will have to see if she gets over the shock.
Day 174 – Saturday 22nd June
Bee had karate this morning. I wasn’t sure she would want to do Fight Club after yesterdays incident and did say to her there was no point in doing fight club if she didn’t want to enter competitions….but she wanted to do it. But I could see she has had a knock to her confidence as she wasn’t as good with her sparring and looked more frightened when she had to go up against a boy. Will see how it goes and might stop her from doing fight club myself. I think she wants to go fight club as her friends go plus in the interval between her first class and fight club the kids that are waiting have a bit of fun and we all share snacks. I found some unicorn themed cakes in the morning to take with us.
Then in the evening there was a late Eid party at a local soft play centre in aid of charity where Bee had fun. Eldest hadn’t wanted to go so she went to her Quran class.
You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!
Police cadets sounds very interesting. I hope she enjoys it. Sorry to hear about Bee getting hit in the face at fight club, that must have been a shock to her. I can totally relate to feeling you do nothing but drive the kids round, that’s my life too!

Yes I think it was more the shock of it that made her cry rather than actually being hurt
Gorgeous cupcakes! Sounds like you’re doing a lot of driving. Sorry to hear about the incident at the karate club, hope Bee’s confidence comes back soon. Pretty bright blooms.
She does seem to be bouncing back already
Aw that is a shame about Fight Club but kids go in and out of these phases a lot so I guess it’s wait and see what happens.

She does seem to be getting her confidence back already
I used to love fuschias as a child – ballerina flowers. Hope Bee gets over the fight club nerves. Seems silly putting a child in with totally different sized kids
She does seem to be getting her confidence back
Those cupcakes look fab! Perfect for Father’s day.
At least you were told to put the bread rolls in the oven. My youngest has had things sent home from school half cooked without warning.
Aww! Poor Bee. That is awful about the karate. It must have really knocked her confidence. The poor love. x

Her confidence seems to be coming back slowly thankfully
I do love fuschias, we have one that goes mad in our garden but others never survive, it’s the garden of doom! #365
Love Fuschia’s too..thats why got so many…all seem to be doing well
I tried those unicorn cake bars, they are nice. The cakes and bread look fab too xx
The kids love the cake bars
such a shame she got hit in the face, any where else on the body I would say that is the nature of the sport but not in the face at her age. Glad she wanted to go back.
The Police cadet programme sounds interesting, hopefully give young people a respect for authority and make them think twice about committing crimes at a young age, I am all for proactive schemes.
Our garden is hubbys domain, I let the dog out and hang washing out but never use it apart from that
They aren’t meant to go direct for the face anyway but the side of it so think thats why it was a shock as usually she doesn’t get hit in the face.
Poor Bea that sounds awful. I hope shes doing okay and her confidence is coming back? I am going to keep my eye out for those Unicorn cakes they sound really tasty. I am so behind on blog posts but sounds like you have had a productive week

Yes she says she wants to do the next interclub so is bouncing back
I hope the buddleia comes back ok – I think it probably will as they are such robust plants. You must be glad to be back to kick boxing.

It should do as I cut it right back every year anyway once it has flowered
Oh dear, poor Bee, hope she’s feeling better. I understand why she still wants to go, it’s the social side she’ll probably miss the most.
Sorry for the late comments, I’m on catch up after travelling for 3 weeks.
She’s better and went to another competition
