I don’t feel as connected with my body as I did with the girls, it’s very strange. We have plenty to be excited about but I think my worries are overwhelming that excitement at the moment. …

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 …

“This beautiful little lady has clearly forgotten how to stay asleep!”

Clearly that was to prepare us for the past two nights!!This beautiful little lady has clearly forgotten how to stay asleep! For two nights I’ve seen every single hour of the night …

“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 …

Koolights create beautiful and unique interior lighting formed from individual shapes that slot together with a bulb inside. I’ve honestly never seen anything quite like them. We had great fun deciding which little animal was going to …

“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 …

Dentinox Eye Wipes Review

When P1 was a baby cleaning and maintaining her hygiene was a piece of cake. I was 16 and having a routine was definitely not the top of my agenda so I didn’t bath her as regularly as maybe you should, once a week was the best I could manage.   P2 is a whole different story. This little girl …
