New Wine – Day 5

Day 5 – 31/07/13 Last night we learnt that P2 is a sensitive sausage. We went into the main Arena right at the end of worship ready to wait for the Blind Date Show evening entertainment. P2 loved the lights and music, she even had her arm held out reaching for the lights, but when the show began she wasn’t …

New Wine – Day 4

Day 4 – 30/07/13 Today has been a really lazy day. We woke up quite late, got up leisurely and plodded about the camp. Today was also wash day for my cloth nappies. I was in two minds whether to just give in and take disposables with me, that was what other cloth users had advised me to do, but …

New Wine – Day 3

Day 3 – 29/07/13 I don’t think I’ve ever heard a child cry so much! There’s a child, of unknown age as I haven’t seen it, that seems to constantly cry! The first night people in our camp were complaining, then yesterday evening I could hear what they meant. The poor child cried for literally a whole hour, maybe more, …

New Wine – Day 2

Day 2 – 28/07/13 My OH and I fell asleep really early, and although it was obviously interrupted for me by P2 nuzzling for boobie, we had a pretty decent first night. We enjoyed a lovely cooked breakfast courtesy of my Mum and spent the morning relaxing in the outdoors with a mixture of sun and wind. P1 went to …

New Wine – Day 1

So during this week I’ve come to realise I’m going to have even less Internet signal than I thought… The joys of being in a field I guess. So I’m going to date my posts and hopefully post as soon as I get signal. Day 1 – 27/07/13 We arrived at New Wine all safe and sound. The journey was …

Holiday Mode

Today has been such a busy day! We’ve been busy preparing to go to New Wine. The majority of our evening has been spent packing, but this afternoon we managed to visit family. The girls also had their ears pierced today – I’m prepared for all the negative comments regarding this. P1 had her ears pierced when she was about …

Baby Toilets

We are about 3 weeks in on our food weaning journey. I originally wanted to do baby led with the odd bit of purée. But things haven’t quite gone that way. Well, I suppose that it has been baby led in a way. P2 doesn’t seem to be able to pick food up and get it into her mouth. I …

To My Princess 1 – 4 Years 7 Months

To my Princess 1, I feel like I don’t write enough about you and take enough photos anymore. I feel like your little sister is getting a lot of attention from me and you are being forced to seek all attention from Daddy or your Grandparents. It upsets me, we share bedtimes still but our cuddles are very sparse and …

Groggy Summers Day

I really hate storms. Call me childish, but they are scary. I don’t know why or where my feeling of nervousness comes from. The moment I heard the very loud, very angry grumble of thunder I immediately snuggled up to my OH. He slept through the first few hours of the storm! We seem to have finally cracked P2s awful …

A Royal Baby Boy

Firstly, a huge congratulations to William and Kate on the birth of their baby boy! Gosh it’s hard enough being a “normal” mother, whatever that is, let alone being a Royal mother. Under constant watchful, judgmental and nosey eyes. But surely being a royal mother is a hell of a lot easier!! I bet right this second Kate is struggling …

Fluke?

Another very odd night in the sleeping department of P2. I fed her at 9:30pm, put her in her cot about 10:30pm. She then woke up at about 2:30am, but I literally got myself out of bed and put her dummy in her mouth. She fell straight back to sleep until 4:30am. Although she’s rather content and happy, she’s currently …

Hospital Admittance – Again!

Following my perfect night sleep came a dreadful day. I was happy and motivated and began work on my business spreadsheets. A few minutes later I had little white dots which spread across my vision to prevent me from looking at things properly. This was an indication of my migraines I used to have when on the full contraceptive pill. …

Where Did That Come From

After what seems like so many broken nights of sleep, last night was a tad different. Rather unusual and very nice. P2 had fallen asleep at about 8pm, on top of our bed whilst I sat and worked on creating our new business spreadsheets. She was quite unsettled but didn’t feed. She then woke at about 10pm for an hour, …

Sleepy In The Heatwave

I’ve been feeling really down recently. In a sort of hole that I can’t seem to climb out of. I’ll be fine all day, right up until when P1 goes to bed. I’ll just be quiet and down, then randomly cry. I really think it’s a lack of sleep causing this. P2 has been waking and feeding every two hours …

Fly Away

You are all going to think I’m really pathetic with this post but it has to be done. This weather has been amazing. I hate how everyone complains about the cold, wet typical British weather, yet moan when it’s wonderfully hot and sunny!! Why?! I’ve been making use of my Grandparents, MiL and finally our garden at any given opportunity. …
