“P1 was the thing that kept my grandad fit and active at 82 years old”

There was me crying earlier over boobies whilst my grandparents experienced their last ever Thursday with P1! My grandparents have been amazing. Since finding out I was pregnant at the young age of 15 they’ve always been there supporting me, through thick and thin. Whether it was help with money, words or just by being them, I knew I could …

“I better wipe the tears and get on with housework”

My OH has gone to London today, P1 has gone to my grandparents house and I’m at home with P2. Massaging my lumpy boob and watching P2 play with the label on our dinner tray. It’s been 48 hours since I last fed my girl by boobie. I was absolutely fine about it, until now, where I have time to …

“I can wear whatever clothes I like and that feels fantastic!”

As I’m sitting here now at 6pm, I haven’t breastfed or expressed for over 31 hours and I’d like to add that my boobies are also finding this fine. Now despite the fact P2 is still sharing a bed occasionally most the night, last night she slept perfectly from 12:30 – 7am! I’m not feeling as emotional anymore about giving …

“writing ebooks has given me a new focus in life”

I recently wrote my first ebook which documented the time I found out I was pregnant. That time of my life was by far the most difficult and most exciting!! I am basically writing to plead with everyone to go and buy it! I’d really love to hear some feedback and hopefully get my book out there for other young …

Vital Baby Kidisipper Tubby Review

With P2 munching her way through three meals plus snacks and even some of our food, we thought it was about time to offer some water and even a splash of juice too. So I was delighted to be given the chance of reviewing a Kidisipper Tubby from Vital Baby. The sippy cup has a very flexible spout and P2 …

Essex Floods Family Rescued From Sinking Vehicle 24 / 25th August 2013

We woke up today and everything is sunny. As if yesterday’s floods never happened. We were lucky really, although our drains blocked and we could only use our upstairs toilet, some people weren’t so lucky. I’ve heard stories about people’s downstairs being completely ruined. The aftermath is crazy. All we can hear is sirens, emergency services going to help everyone …

“it’s not like I’d go and ask for a boob job or anything”

I think the last time I spoke about my breastfeeding journey was with this post and I just wanted to update everyone that may be interested. For nearly about three weeks I’ve been feeding boobie to P2 after her dinner all the way until her breakfast. She’s been having formula during the day. It’s been going quite well really, she’ll …

Essex Floods Getting Crazy 24 August 2013

So it’s a day of typical English weather. Well I say typical… I don’t think I’ve ever seen rain as bad as this!! We’re flooding! Where I live we very rarely get floods because we are on high ground. So this weather is really weird and everyone is so unprepared. The drains are flooded, the roads are flooded, businesses flooded, …

To My Princess 1 – 4 Years 8 Months

To my Princess 1, I seriously cannot believe that you’ll be starting school in less than two weeks. It seems like such a long time ago that you were a tiny baby like your sister and so dependent on me. You’ve grown up ridiculously this past month. Finally able to put your own clothes on and the majority of the …

It’s very rare for us to buy branded food at the moment with saving for a mortgage, wedding shopping and having two young children to feed. So it was fantastic when I was asked to taste test some more Walkers products. 18 packets of crisps arrived for us to munch. Another new product from the brains of Walkers, Mighty Lights. …

“this is not any form of yoga. This is simply child abuse”

Sorry for the late night post but something’s ticked me off just a tad. During our nightly routine after we put P2 in her cot and snuggle down, my OH usually watches YouTube and I scroll through Facebook, Twitter and other blog posts. Only today I’m unusually reading a magazine when my OH nudges me to watch something. Here it …
