Going back home to Newcastle.


This weekend we headed back home, Back up to Newcastle to see our family.

We travelled through the night so it would be easier, No traffic, The boys slept through & So did our dog coco. Never had such a pleasant quite drive. We left at roughly 1:30am, Hubby slept a few hours before we left while I finished the last bits of packing.

We got to my Mams at 9am which would have been earlier. but breaks for the toilet & For hubby to rest his legs it took a little longer. We got there & Mam had to go to work so she took Edward with her & We went for a nap. The night before we left my joints were sore again. Nothing new since having the Purpura rash. But when we got to Mams I was finding it hard to walk, Only to realise my foot & Ankle balloons twice its size. Typical! Just what I needed.

Tyne Bridge.

my newest nephew was born 4 weeks ago so I was dying to go & Meet him. Few hours nap then hubby dropped me off at my sisters while he went to his sisters with the boys. He is so bloody cute! But I am not broody.

My sister & I fell out for a few year so I hadn’t met her second born so I met him to, He’s a little menace but you wouldn’t think so looking at him he looks like butter wouldn’t melt. And her first born he’s just never changed, He is comical. All 3 are beautiful little boys.

By the time I left my sisters I could hardly walk with my foot, So Saturday I decided to just stay indoors at mams & Go through all the old family photos. My nana loved the camera mind! 1000’s of photos. So many happy memories & Good times. I was sat for a good 6+ hours scanning them.


Sunday was the day we were leaving, I wish we could have stayed longer but the boys had school & I finally had my appointment with the dermatologist. We left mams at dinner time & Headed over to the cemetery to put some flowers down for my mother & Father in laws grave.

It was such a short trip but a lot of nice time spent with family. Was it worth the long hours of driving? Hell yeah. Time is precious & We should all use it wisely. One day our time will be up.
