Insomnia is not fun!

I don't know what's wrong with me lately. I haven't been sleeping very well at night, I keep waking up even though I am SO tired. I feel 'groggy' all day and just blah! Like, I am so, so tired. I actually tried to have a nap today but I STILL couldn't sleep, I kept waking up. I gave up trying to sleep and now I feel really kind of fatigue and just not really with it.. Drained perhaps is the word?! Do you know what I mean? It's hard to explain. I know that I'm OVER tired but gosh, what I wouldn't give for a good nights (solid) sleep!! I think once the kids are back to school and we are back into our routine, my sleeping will improve. Insomnia is not fun.

Speaking of going back to school... I have finally got the kids uniforms, I just need to get Ellie's shoes (I so hope Clarks have her size in stock) and she could do with some more blouses and another pinafore. She's gone off wearing trousers for some bizarre reasons. The school is open the day before the kids go back, so I'll be able to purchase uniform - school jumpers etc, that I can't buy in the store (they have school logs on). I am really looking forward to getting back into routine but I know how much I'm going to miss the kids and I really, really will miss them. We have a had a fantastic summer.
We had a fantastic day our crabbing last week. And we went to the air show the week before (I still need to write about the air show). The kids have really enjoyed there time off from school. I still can't believe that it's Harry's last year at primary school! Eek!! Charlie will be in year five and Ellie in year two. They are growing up SO fast.

My reasons to be cheerful this week. #R2BC

1) We had a lovely day yesterday. I took the kids crabbing and they had an amazing time. It was such a beautiful day - best make the most of the weather now because the weather will be changing very soon.


2) The little's go back to school next week and yes, I will miss them greatly but it will be really good to get back into normal routine. I have brought there uniforms and what not. I do still need to buy Ellie's shoes though, hopefully they'll have her size in stock either the weekend or early next week!

3) I have had an eye hemorrhage which has finally better! My eye is no longer bloodshot. FINALLY! I do still have a chest infection, hopefully the antibiotics will help :)

4) We had a fabulous time at the airshow last week. The red arrows were brilliant! Seriously, super cool. Those pilots are so brave. Not sure I could do what they do, lol.

Catching crabs!

River stour

Yesterday, we decided to make the most of the nice weather. The last week or so, it's been rather dull and wet. Yesterday however was very sunny and warm.
The kids have been wanting to go crabbing for a couple of weeks now, so we decided yesterday, that we would indeed go crabbing!

crabbing along the river.
We sat along the wall by the side of the river and sand and dipped out crabbing lines into the water. Charlie thought it was quite funny that crabs like bacon of all things! He was quite fascinated by that fact!

Fun on the sand and crabbing!
We spent a good hour or so crabbing for crabs. We caught around six or seven large crabs. And then we spent some time on the sand, building sand castles & paddling in the water. We also met up with my grandparents and spent a little time with them on the sand, too! It was a fab day.

The horse was very friendly, he came over to say hi!

After we'd finished crabbing we went for a little walk! We saw horses and ducks, geese and chickens. It was a lovely day out (cheap too!).
