Leaving The Recluse Behind

When I had P1 I was made to feel ashamed of myself by some mums at the school, despite the fact all my fellow school “friends” we’re very supportive. The petition to have me removed from the school only made me more determined to prove them wrong. But as time went on and P1 arrived it was clear that becoming …

Siblings March 2015

In true fashion, I left taking our sibling photos until the last minute, today to be precise, and typically things didn’t go to plan. I wanted my sibling photos to not only represent them as sisters but to be adventurous and ones to keep in the family album. My plan was to take them outside as the weather has been …

“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 …

“Mummy, how do babies get inside your tummy?”

I thought I had a few years to come up with my answer to the birds and the bees questions. My six year old thought differently. The question was sprung just as I was kissing P1 goodnight. “Mummy, how do babies get inside your tummy?” She said innocently. She’s witnessed my two pregnancies, seen my tummy go from flat to …

Valentines Day 2015

We’ve had an extremely different weekend. P1 and P2 have been for a sleepover round their Grandparents in Essex and we’ve had a weekend of just P3 which has been surprisingly easy. It hadn’t gone unnoticed that this weekend was also Valentines Day and I wanted to plan something for hubby as a surprise. I’m not overly good at surprises …

Nonabox January 2015 Review

I’m pretty excited that the Nonabox have allowed me to review again this year. There’s nothing that beats the element of surprise each month and I have to be honest that my hubby has started to rush to the package to see what’s inside. January’s Nonabox has been slightly disappointing again if I’m completely honest. It’s not that the products …

“She has a tongue-tie”

I’m 99% sure that P3 is teething. She’s suddenly become a dribbling wreck and is quite partial to a bit of finger munching… My fingers and hers. Whilst on a little session of chewing my finger I felt something familiar. A tongue-tie just like mine. Obviously, I’m no doctor but it played on my mind a bit. I’ve lived with …

The Dummy-Sucking-Sock-Munching-Lid-Wearing Monster

Somewhere, hiding away in a dark corner of my tiny little house lurks The Dummy-Sucking-Sock-Munching-Lid-Wearing Monster. As a Mum of three I’ve had plenty of experience.

“At first I thought it may be because she’s struggling”

There’s so much going on in P1s life and I find it difficult to stay on board with it all. The other two take up so much of my time that I guilty sort of forget. I forget that she’s not an average little girl. This year has already seen some changes for P1 at school. They’ve started swimming lessons …

“We created our first Friday Movie Night!”

There’s an enormous community that comes with being a blogger. I spend a lot of time reading other blogs via the Bloglovin’ app. I tend to follow parent bloggers because I can really relate to them. It also gives me an insight to how other people live or parent and I’m guilty of comparing. Then Molly at A Mother’s Always …

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: …

Dear Peppa Pig, I have a bone to pick with you. I want to know when you will be returning my nearly two year old! It started with an episode here and there on the TV. Then they ventured to the laptop through YouTube. Now, Peppa, you have invaded our day to day life. We cannot escape. P2 is demanding …
