IMG_4845.JPG

Easy peasy. Not exactly life or death but these are the things that make my life go round… 1) My husband. He’s my back bone. He’s taught me so much. He’s my absolute best friend. The main person I rely on for everything. He puts up with so much. 2) My Daughters. Without them I’d have no purpose. It’s that ... Read More »

28/31: My Biggest Source Of Inspiration

IMG_0696.JPG

I couldn’t choose between my Nan or my Grandad so I’m going to write why both of them are my biggest inspirations. My Nan I cannot remember a time where she was 100% well. She’d always get out of breath walking to town but she never really let it effect any of us. As things got worse, yes she’d complain ... Read More »

Pregnancy Diaries – 34 Weeks #3

IMG_4870.JPG

I’m getting increasingly nervous now. The fact that I have 6 weeks until my due date, but only 3 weeks until I’m classed as “term”. It’s scary. You’d think that I would be a pro at pregnancy and birth by now but I think the fact I only gave birth last year means that it’s all still so fresh in ... Read More »

At just 21 years on this earth (very nearly 22) I’ve had quite a few difficult situations to contend with.

It was when I found out ... Read More »

I love shopping for the girls clothes in supermarkets. George at Asda particularly have a lovely range for children’s clothes for an excellent price but I rarely get myself anything in the supermarket. We were recently sent some denim shorts to review.

DreamGenii Pregnancy Pillow Review

DSC_3024

It’s the main thing I’ve moaned about during this pregnancy and it too begins with the letter “P”. Pain. I seem to have been dished the very shortest straw when it comes to pain and have been in agony for what seems like the whole duration.

IMG_4201.JPG

I’m sure my hubby could quite easily come up with ten words that describe me without a blink of an eye.

“The result was what I’d feared”

IMG_4792-0.JPG

We have an outbuilding. It’s a building with electricity and water. It’s quite large. It houses our freezer, our washing machine and the tumble dryer. Lately, it’s also been our dump spot. Everyone has one. Usually it’s a drawer or a cupboard we just throw things into a pretend that it’ll get sorted later or next week, or even next ... Read More »

A Visit To Buckingham Palace

IMG_2886.JPG

I relied on my Grandparents for childcare when I was working, they looked after P1 three times a week until my Nan’s health really got bad, but then it was still two times a week.

IMG_2878.JPG

I love looking at photos from the past because they always spark memories. This photo was taken 10 years ago, back when I actually thought I looked the bees knees!

Being 33 weeks pregnant is a sort of milestone for me. At 33+1 I gave birth to P1.

“The very precious sibling bond”

IMG_4372.JPG

I never realised just how dependent P2 was on her big sister. A couple of weeks ago P1 went for a sleep over with my Grandad (their Great-Grandad) and originally it was meant to be for one night which turned into two nights. P1 had a fantastic time and actually came back really upset from missing him. But back at ... Read More »
