Whatever it May be.


Hello May.
I am not at all sure about some of these things about May.... I'm not that keen on new, or frightening, and especially not incredibly frightening/life threatening. Nor am I likely to break out any dance moves.  Breakfasting alfresco I could cope with (if the weather would please warm up), simple pleasures day I'm happy to embrace, and even complicated pleasures day. I definitely like the sound of  lie in sunbeams day, although I hope it doesn't clash with International frisbee day because that would spoil the sunbeam lying...

in reality May  is to be filled with GSCE's for Miss K, and exam invigilating for me, and thus there will be much need for cake.  and also shopping for shoes. for Prom. Sometimes to get through things you have to focus on what's at the end. (ok so it's the end is in June, but that's ok, there will be plenty of cake)

  1. You really caught me by surprise with this one, it may be partly the lack of a 31st day or partly the freezy, cold weather, but I was not expecting May this morning. It sounds quite good on your calendar though, I'm not averse to the try something new (without the scary, life threatening bits) and we have a family ticket to an apparently slightly wacky dance performance in a week's time, where the second half is all about complete audience participation, so the dance moves could be covered too! Haven't told my husband about this second half yet! Anyway, I hope revision is going smoothly and painlessly and those GCSE's fly by, in a good way. Hopefully June will be all the sweeter for working so hard in May.

  2. I am loving this calender. Hmmm life threatening activities I am with you on that one, for someone else me thinks. I do hope Miss K's GCSE go smoothly and you all enjoy the cake!

  3. Happy May Day! That is such a fun calendar; I'd love to sea the sea (sadly, not likely until June) and 'lie in sunbeams' day sounds wonderful. Good luck to Miss K with the GCSEs - cake is definitely a revision requirement! xx

  4. Happy May! Your calendar has some surprises for May, I think....I never thought of it as a scary month before! Lying in sunbeams sounds so lovely....my little dog Molly has been doing that this week already :) Good luck to your daughter for her exams and to you for the invigilating...and enjoy lots of lovely cake.

  5. Ooo... May's going to be fun! Shaking it up sounds good... And I do need to work on my dance moves...LOL! We are close to the sea--so that is very do-able. Best of luck & wishes to Miss K... and prom--so exciting!! When it all gets too heavy, keep thinking about that cake... ;o) ((HUGS))

  7. Cake after exam revision sounds like a very good idea. My oldest is doing National 5's (Scottish version of GCSE's) and I have told him I will make him the cake of his choosing to celebrate the end of the exams (I think it will contain peanut butter!) x

  8. The calendar has had me going around the house singing The Lusty Month of May from Camelot.
    Happiest of Mays to you and best of luck to Miss K. Hope June brings more relaxing times to both of you.

  10. I love May. I love the two bank holidays that come with it most of all, and my Birthday. I hope all of Miss K's exams go well, keeping my fingers crossed. x

  11. May already. Lie in sunbeams day sounds delightful, but breakfast al fresco will be far too chilly for me. Good luck to Miss K, I hope it all goes very well for her. And that the cake is really excellent. Wishing you a good weekend Tess. CJ xx

  12. oh no I quite agree, the scary things can wait for another month in another year. seeing the sea though is much more acceptable, and the being outside and breaking a sweat seems reasonable too. Ultimately, though, your suggestion of cake wins! Good luck for the exams, both Miss K and you, and hope you have a lovely weekend x

  13. May is the month of cake for me. I somehow managed to have all 3 of my children in May so that's a whole lot of birthday cake to enjoy (obviously they need a cake each) :)

  14. Break out some dance moves, why don't you? Get down and boogie. :) May is our romantic month, we met in May and got married in May (three Mays apart, not the same May, that would be a little too bold for boring old me, even when I was young. :))

  15. Wasn't that an oscar winning film? "There Will Be Cake"?

  16. I love this time of year - I will hopefully be seeing the sea at least once so that cheers me up immensely! I find the year zooms past quite quickly from this point so I will try and savour it! :)

  17. As you know I have this calendar too, and it's 'Go Commando Day' that has me worried!

    Wishing you easy marking and mountains of (mini?) cakes :)

  19. oh prom shoes... how exciting! I can't imagine it'll be the same thing when I'll have to blackmail my lot into a suit!!

    Boys, eh?

  20. Haha -- I LOVE this calendar! I would worry a bit about the life threatening bit though. And just read Annie's comment -- you forgot to mention Go Commando day. We could incorporate that with quilts somehow!!!

  21. Breakfast al fresco?? I wish! It's been so cold this month. Surely we've earned a scorching June,but the law of British weather never seems to work like that, does it. I hope the GCSEs are going well, or as well as they can do. xx

  22. Well the weather has improved of late ...and the flowers and blooms are looking good.

    Do hope all the exams are going well, our youngest sat his final University exam during this week .. and he has started his job so all good exciting things ahead we hope.

    All the best Jan
