“We won’t be trick or treating for Halloween”

P1 has been enjoying a few days and nights with her Nanny, Grandad and Uncle B back in Essex. She’s been there since Tuesday evening and I feel completely lost!!! I’m used to leaving her, or not seeing her but it’s been really odd this time. Since moving out and becoming a stay at home mum I’ve developed a routine, …

I spent hours searching websites until finally something grabbed my attention. Shell Bell Designs create many unique cards, stationary and gifts. I chose the top hat design. She hand crafts each piece and works really …

Sleepynico Serene Garden Baby Carrier Review

For months I have struggled to babywear. My first carrier contained far too much fabric for my petite frame. The second sling was much better, something I could get on with but felt the constant need to support P2 with my hand. Then came the Serene Garden Sleepynico carrier. First of all, isn’t it just beautiful? The fabric is amazing …

“It was really chilled and I loved having my Grandad over for the day”

I had my Grandad round yesterday. It was the first time he’s seen the new house so I made sure everything looked tidy. I’m still finding things a little difficult around him, I don’t know why really, he’s been my absolute world for ever. I think he’s just not the one I actually used to “talk” to all the time, …

Talltape Height Chart Review

If you’ve read my blog for a while you’ll know that P1 was born prematurely on Christmas Eve 2008. This has lead to many health issues, some that trouble her every day life and others that are just happening beneath the skin. Last year, P1 went through some growth tests, these included some blood tests and an X-ray. We haven’t …

Storm Hits Southern UK 28th October 2013

I want to apologise to anyone who read my previous post about last night and today’s storms. It was a little insensitive and has been deleted. After reading news reports and weather forecasts I was really quite nervous going to bed last night. The wind had already picked up quite a bit and it was expected that Sevenoaks and South …

“This transition is going to be huge whatever we decide”

We had a visit from the sleep specialist. The things she told us are standard things; controlled crying, own room, no milk at night, no talking after bedtime and keep to the same thing each night. I can do all of that. It’s just finding the will power, the support and the energy. We’ve taken on board the own room …

“When we go back to Essex every Saturday it just doesn’t feel the same”

I keep getting asked about my move from Essex to Kent. Why I did it? How’s it been? Have I settled? etc etc. Losing my Nan so close to move county’s has be tough, real tough, but there’s absolutely nothing I regret. Everything’s different over here. It’s cleaner, it’s prettier, the petrol is more expensive, Tesco & Sainsburys have Fast …

I’m due to see a lot of people that I’ve been lucky enough to meet thanks to my blog. So I wanted to be …

To My Princess 1 – 4 Years 10 Months

To my Princess 1, I cannot believe how much you have grown this month. Not height wise, intelligence wise. You are reading! It takes time but you are actually reading most words. You sound out each letter to help you form each word. You’ve been picked on at school a couple of times recently which broke my heart. You kept …

“it was little Prince George’s christening today”

My Christening….So it was little Prince George’s christening today. Of course a huge event for the Royals and anyone who follows them. I’m not particularly a follower I’m afraid, of the Royals, I am a follower/believer in God as you all know. Anyway, it got me thinking. My Grandad had made our wedding cake with P2s baptism/christening in mind. The …

“These days apparently the harvest offering is £1”

I experienced my first Harvest Festival as a parent of a reception class child today. P1 has been practising her singing for the past week, a song I used to sing for my harvest festivals. Every single song reminded me of my school days and my harvest festivals back in primary school! I could sing along to the whole festival. …

VTech Gadget The Robot Review

After weeks of P1 nagging at me that she wanting Gadget The Robot in her birthday/Christmas list thanks to the VTech advert for him, I was over the moon when he arrived through our front door. I was a little worried at first, noisy toys are so frustrating! But Gadget is more than just a toy, he’s a whole lot …

Littlewoods Quilted Jackets

I don’t know if it’s just me, but I’m really feeling the cold lately. It’s freezing! I’m probably noticing it more because I’m out in it a lot more doing the school run. So I’ve been looking at different coats and jackets. I don’t know much about fashion in all honesty. I tend to wear what’s comfortable especially when it comes down to …
