There’s this ginormous community surrounding the blogging world, I have a fantastic group of loyal readers who engage with me frequently and I appreciate every comment, like …

McDonald’s Football Mum Of The Year Awards

We are yet to embark on the life of school clubs and other hobby related activities. P1 just isn’t that type of girl and certainly isn’t an active person due to her hypermobility. However, we were recently invited to a local Football Club to meet former Team GB Captain and Arsenal Ladies Defender Casey Stoney as part of the drive …

The General Election & The MADS Blog Awards

So today, we packed the kids up and headed to our local polling station. I felt really nervous actually. I have no idea how the whole “politics” thing works and I certainly haven’t been following each party to know what they are promising. I woke this morning and had a quick look over each party’s websites to see if anything …

Aldi Mamia Nappy Review

I change two different bottoms, roughly 8 times a day, seven days a week! This will cut down to one bottom soon, I’m counting down the days trust me but my nappy changing days are far from over so finding the right nappy for my children is critical. We’ve tried a lot. P1 spent her time in branded Pampers or …

Frankie & Benny’s Festive Menu Review

Hubby and I wanted to treat my MiL, BiL and her partner to a Christmas meal to thank them for the unconditional love and support they’ve given us this past year. We’d discussed several places we could go and then Frankie & Benny’s asked me to review their Festive Menu. This gave us a fantastic opportunity to treat the family …

The Little Green Sheep SnuzPod 3 in 1 Bedside Crib Review – Bedside (Part 1)

With P2 it wasn’t a conscious decision at first to co-sleep but our breastfeeding journey and our sleep journey was made much easier. We looked at different co-sleeper cots but never got round to actually investing in one. This time, we’d already decided to co-sleep and was just going to share our bed with P3. But then we were extremely …

One Million Milestone

I stopped checking my stats religiously a while ago. Right at the beginning I’d check every day, more than three times a day. Now it’s more like once a day or even once every two days. I tend to follow an average line of views a day. Today I checked my stats and was utterly shocked to see it was …

Michelle Heaton Active Pregnancy DVD Review

Keeping fit and exercising has never been a top priority, in fact it’s never even been on the list of daily/weekly to dos! I do walking because I have to. I run around after the kids because I have to. I do house chores because I have to. You get the picture. Since being pregnant this time I’ve had reflection …

“I’m so nervous about P1 having the growth hormone test”

Last year, P1 had some blood tests and an X-ray to check her growth. We’ve been a little concerned and so was the paediatrician but considering I’m rather small (4ft 8in) we weren’t too worried about the results. Last Friday, we finally had the results back – she’s normal. Well, there’s nothing wrong with her bones anyway. The next step …

“Her behaviour is beyond anything we’ve ever had to deal with”

I’m struggling to remember the last time that I went a whole day or even half a day without having to tell P1 off for something or argue with her. Life seems to be a constant battle – parents against child. Her behaviour is beyond anything we’ve ever had to deal with before. She’s become really rude and I’m really …

H&A Nemo Bubbly Bath Review

If you’re a long term reader you’ll know that we struggle with P2 in the bath/water subject. Although saying this the past few weeks have been a breeze as my MiL has been bathing her on a Wednesday night after P1s swimming. I think it helps that she actually has a bath and we only have a shower/plastic box round …

Happy 1st Birthday Princess 2

I blinked and a whole year whizzed past. Yup, P2 is a whole year, 12 months, 365 days, 52 weeks old. I know it’s crazy!! I apologise in advance. It’s a long one and a cuppa tea and biscuit may be needed… If you’re not too squeamish that it. I realised that last year I failed to write my labour …
