What I must remember when in Senior school By Jak

So, on Wednesday I left primary school forever ūüôĀ ¬†I THINK¬†¬†i’m ready for the change, but there are still some things that I definitely, absolutely cannot do! For example….

  • I can’t sing ” 64, 64, 64 zoo lane!” when the answer is 64 in a maths lesson.
  • I can’t say the word playground. Wait, if its not a “playground” what is it?? Do we even play in secondary school?! Is it a “hanging-around-ground” ?! Oh god I’m confused…
  • English is NOT a time to doodle at the back of the class.
  • Detention exists so no giving your best friend a dead arm, well not in front of teachers anyway ūüôā
  • I have to buy my own lunch?! What kind of torture is this?!
  • To do list:
  • ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬†Homework
  • ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬†Homework
  • ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬†More Homework
  • ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬†Fifa
  • ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬†Some more homework
  • ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬†Sleep
  • ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬† ¬†Homework
  • I cant blow up ¬†my homework in science.
  • I cant blame my little brother for eating my homework (even if he did).
  • I must say goodbye to my uber cool lego pack lunch box, and say hello to tin foil! DAMN THAT!
  • I’m not allowed to wear shorts to school ūüôĀ
  • Nobody will care about how many kills I got in League of Legends last night.
  • I cannot cry for my mum when i fall over as my mum is no longer in my school
  • I must not call my teachers Mr and Mrs/Miss…. they are now known as Sir and Ma’am
  • No one will want to talk Pokemon and danga ūüôĀ
  • I must get used to that fact that form time is when i get to talk to my form tutor and NOT time to play lego and do puzzles!
  • And lastly, I KNOW NOBODY THERE!!!!!!!!!!!!

Any way, I hope you enjoyed my list of what will change in secondary school!



Funny Things They Say and Do

Children can say the funniest things, and as My youngest is 2 and a half he is talking more and more each day but not always making sense and sometimes getting his words mixed up.

Whilst we was in the park early one morning, Oliver was sitting in the swing pulling a funny face. I asked him what was wrong and he told me that he needed a wee, now normally he will just take himself off to the toilet at home or make silly noises which i can interpret as his needing the toilet noise. I stopped pushing him on the swing and went to take him out…

“No Mum, I will hold it”

“You can’t hold it Oliver, I will take you over to that tree and you can wee up it” (there are no toilets in the park and we was the only people around)

Oliver looked at the tree, he looked up to the top of the tall tree and pulled a scared face

“I can’t wee up that tree Mum, it’s too big and can’t get up there” He points to the top “Can i just go at the bottom of the tree , please”

Oh dear, He must have thought that i was going to send him UP to the top of the tree to do wee as that is how he interpreted Weeing UP a tree.

Oliver has Chicken pox and I caught him wriggling around the sofa, rubbing his back backward and forwards. I had already told him that he mustn’t scratch because he will not help the spots to heal.

“Are you scratching Oliver?”

“No Mum”

He continues to wriggle about

“What are you doing then? Because it looks like you are rubbing your back on the cushion”

No Mum, I’m not scratching! I’m just moving around on the sofa, Look it’s like a little dance!”

Aah! Bless him! It must be hard for a 2 year old to understand and resist the urge to scratch.


Oliver had been asleep and woke up just after his big brothers, I brought him downstairs and put him onto the sofa. His older brother, Jak, went over to him to kiss his forehead. Oliver looked at Jak and said

“You can give me a cuddle, if you can want to?”

How adorable is that?

What have your children been saying that has made you smile?



The things they say and do! You Jork!

The boys play quite well together but sometimes they do have their little rifts and disagreements which are normally over Jak not wanting to play the game that Joseph is suggesting.

The other day they were arguing because Jak had had enough of playing outside and wanted to come indoors and do something different, he went to walk away and Joseph shouted

“You JORK!”

Jak laughed at him which just made Joseph even more cross

“I think that you have your words mixed up Joseph, It’s not JORK, It’s Dork!”

Although I don’t agree with the boys calling each other names, I couldn’t help but giggle this one time. I think he got a bit muddled up with Jerk and Dork!


“Does Oliver not Love me Mum?”

“Why do you ask that, Joseph?”

“Because he screams at me all the time whenever I am near him!”


The other evening after bathing Oliver I got him dressed into his pyjamas (which were new) he noticed that they were a pair that he had never worn before, he smiled and got really excited by doing a little dance. I took him downstairs to his dad where he turned around in front of him, pointing to his pyjamas saying “Jarmies Jarmies Dad” Small things eh!


Joseph came out of school last Friday with a little gift that he had made in class, it was a beautiful little heart shaped keyring with a picture of himself on it and on the other side was a drawing of someone with blonde hair (Daddy has black hair)

“Who is your drawing of Joseph?”

“Well we was asked to draw someone we loved so i drew you!”

“Aaw, that is lovely Joseph, I love it! But it’s daddy’s day soon didn’t you want to make him one?”

“No, that’s ok we can just buy him something from the shop!”


What have you children been up to lately? Have they said anything that has made you smile or laugh?




The funny things they say and do!

I’ve¬†not posted out a funny things they say and do for a while, not because the boys haven’t done anything funny but simply because i¬†have just not had the spare time to write it down. This week i¬†am off work and although we have been busy with Christmas and sickness i managed to jot down a few things that they have done.

Joseph was arguing with his older brother, i¬†asked them what was going on, Joseph got all upset and said “Jak was confusing me to do it!” I think he meant that his big brother was teasing him!

We was driving to Grandads house for dinner and he lives about 45 minutes away from us

Joseph: Where are we going?

Me: To visit granddad he is cooking us a dinner

Joseph: Well it can’t be little granddad¬†as he lives in another country! (We was driving to the other granddad)

Me: Granddad¬†doesn’t live in another country Joseph, he just lives far far away in another County!

Joseph: But granddad¬†speaks in another language and sometimes i can’t understand him!

Me: granddad¬†is from Yorkshire honey and mummy was born there too, but i¬†just don’t talk with the same accent as Grandad anymore!

Joseph: That’s because you taught yourself english!

We was all eating dinner at Grandad’s¬†house with the little ones at the other end of the kitchen on their own little table. After finishing our food we was having a little chat with some laughter and i¬†looked over to the boys table, i¬†saw jak¬†stood there and walked off so i thought they had all left their table and gone in to the living room to play games. After a¬†few minutes of talking with the other adults at the table it all went silent and we heard a little voice pipe up…

“I don’t like being all on my own!”

I stood up and looked over to the little table and there was Joseph sat hidden behind a large glass still eating his ice cream all on his own… Poor little thing! lol

Christmas morning we was all opening our presents and the boys spent more time in daddy’s big empty box playing cars…


Have your children done or said anything funny? why not leave a comment below and share with me ūüôā


One to embarrass him with when he’s older

This is the most funniest pic I have taken of my boys ever!
We were shopping in Cosco and I noticed a rather large Disney Cinderella Doll. I told Joseph to stand next to it and pose as if he was cuddling her, he was being silly with his big brother as Jak was telling him to kiss her. Whilst I got the phone out to take a pic of him and his new friend, I told him to hold on to her as she may topple over.

Well look where he held on to!!!!
