It can get a little confusing when you have a baby. All the different products, technologies and safety requirements that come from the responsibility of having a baby.

I didn’t necessarily decide to have long hair. It just grew and I’m awful for attending hairdressers. I’ve been once a year sometimes less since having children. But I didn’t think I’d ever be sitting in the position I currently am. My hair is falling out. I expected hair loss after pregnancy. It happened with P2 leaving me with an ...

Persil Cook With The Kids

featured cook with the kids

P1 wants to be a chef. She loves cooking, baking and everything in between. I hate cooking with children. Baking I can just about manage but cooking a meal is normally a no go situation. I hate the mess it creates when children are involved and it’s made even worse when they never listen to instructions. But I braved it when ...

To my Princess 3, You are no longer a tiny baby watching the world go by. You’re firmly in that world, exploring and getting involved in absolutely everything.

My Sunday Photo – 26/07/2015

featured 26 july 2015

I went through Primary School with a very small group of close friends. Twins and another girl. Although I was friendly with everyone there was the usual divide of the popular kids, the normal kids and the ones that had no friends at all. I was probably, I hope, in the middle neither popular or unpopular. When it came to ...

I had hoped to be writing a post about how well P2 was doing with giving up milk. We decided about two weeks ago that we needed to cut it out completely to start with. Like an addiction.
