“I look healthier and more awake than I did a year ago”

Somebody told me today that I look healthier and more awake than I did a year ago after posting this photo on my Instagram this morning.  Little did that person know that I’m hiding a badger stripe at my roots, bags under my eyes and a pretty fed up mood. It was a comment that certainly picked me up …

My Healthy Habit with Juice Plus – Week 2

I’ve been really worrying about the weigh in this week. I’ve now been on Juice Plus for two weeks. I’ve also been exercising religiously using the app that I spoke about last week. I’d hoped I’d lost some weight. I feel skinnier. In reality I don’t think I am and the scales confirmed that. Weight: 45.6 kg (6st 13lbs) Hips: …

My Healthy Habit with Juice Plus – Start Day

Today I’ve started my healthy eating diet with Juice Plus. It means a lot more to me than just losing weight. It’s about my health. For a very long time I’ve been eating around ten or more biscuits each day and the meals I eat have been easy-to-cook options like pizza or ready meals. It’s become a habit and if …

6 Week Check Up and Body Image Problems

We had our six week check up today. I was asked whether my bleeding had stopped, which it has about two days ago, apparently it takes longer for a breastfeeding mother to finish the post-partum bleeding which I found quite interesting to know.

“The frustrating and daunting decision has come to say goodbye”

In January 2012 my little white 1995 Vauxhall Corsa with pink butterfly and flower stickers decided it wanted to keep breaking down on me. The last straw happened when it broke down in the middle of those yellow boxes and I was completely stuck with no help and many cars beeping and passing by. Luckily, it was opposite my work …

“Today topped it off when the school received their Ofsted report”

We’ve put the icing on top of a cake that’s slowly been created. Sorry, this post isn’t about yummy treats, it’s about P1s education. We uprooted our family to Sevenoaks nearly 5 months ago to start a complete fresh and better life. The schools are better, the lifestyle is better and the people are nicer. If you’re a loyal reader …

“P1 has concussion”

It’s been a rather traumatic day today. A day where my life flashed before me. Terror. Worry. Upset. Guilt. I arrived at the school just like normal to pick P1 up. P1 had her head laying on her book bag facing away from me, she’s done this before, another Mummy joked that she was asleep. I tapped her and said …

Goals & Resolutions For 2014

I’m so relieved that 2013 is nearly over. The start of it wasn’t too bad; we welcomed P2 into our lives, had a pretty awesome weekend away with hubby’s family, went away for the weekend as our own little family, a week camping with my family, on the 3rd September we saw our biggest girl start big school. This was …
