John Lewis Anti-Allergy Duvet Review

Just before our move I was offered the chance of reviewing a duvet. I have a thing about my covers so I jumped at the opportunity. The 10.5 tog Double duvet arrived but I saved it for when we were in our new home so that everything could be fresh. From my past experience of duvets; the higher the tog, …

“I can’t remember half the things I’ve wanted to post about”

I’ve drained my data allowance on my phone, and our home has no Internet set up just yet. I’m getting withdrawals of blogging and to be honest, I can’t remember half the things I’ve wanted to post about. So I thought I’d just give you a quick update in photos! I’ll be back very soon! Find me on Facebook & …

“Today was really weird”

Today was really weird. I returned to Essex for P1s swimming lesson and we spent some time with my Grandad. I haven’t seen him since we moved out. I stupidly dressed myself and the girls in summery outfits and forgot coats. Typically for England it rained a lot. This wasn’t the weird part, the odd part about this was that my …

“I guess change really does effect children in many ways”

I’m experiencing some parenting troubles since the move. I guess change really does effect children in many ways. To start, P1 has really changed in her attitude and behaviour, not really for the better especially at bedtime. She’s doing the things she knows she isn’t allowed like turning the main light on. Although I’ve had excellent reports from her class …

“This move has been very exhausting”

When my OH and I had first decided to move out with each other, back in June 2012, we didn’t know we were actually pregnant with P2. Despite what a lot of people probably thought as the week before we actually moved we found out we were expecting. Anyway, I was pregnant when we moved out and when we packed …

“t’s crazy just how homely the house feels already”

We have moved into our new home. A place for me to bring up my daughters, become a fantastic mother and soon-to-be wife. It’s crazy just how homely the house feels already. P1 has stayed back in Essex tonight and I’m missing her more than ever which doesn’t usually happen! I usually enjoy the time out from her constant chatting …

“I’ve been asked to write something for my Nans funeral”

I’ve been asked to write something for my Nans funeral. Not only was I asked to write, because apparently I’m really good at writing, but I’ve been asked to read out what I’ve written! My Grandad asked me in his really hopeful persuasive way that he has. At first I wasn’t really keen, I’ve never been good at speaking in …

“I’m feeling utterly overwhelmed”

I’m feeling utterly overwhelmed. So much has happened this week and it’s crazy that it is only Wednesday. We ended up in hospital on P1s first day of school, we’ve lost my beautiful Nan and we’ve had confirmation of our new house! We are moving. We are moving in just two days. Saturday morning! Today, we’ve been busy sorting P1s …

The Death Of My Nan 3rd September 2013

Hi Nan, I briefly saw you this morning, I say this morning but now it’s actually yesterday, we joked about how it was half past nine in the morning and you were still in bed. I told you how P1 had got on going into school. Then I left. I didn’t kiss you goodbye like I have been recently as …

“Not only was P1 sent home from school we also ended up in A&E”

It never occurred to me that I’d get a phone call to collect P1 from her first day at school. But it was just our luck. The morning went swimmingly. I woke P1 up, gave her the porridge I’d cooked for her, got her dressed, teeth and hair done. She was excited about wearing her princess backpack and we went …

“she’ll be the smallest but with the biggest attitude”

Oh no! The time has come. She’s been bathed, fed, stories read, a long chat and on time bedtime… Yup, P1 is starting her school career tomorrow! Tomorrow?! I swear it doesn’t seem real. I think back of my school memories. They were the toughest years of my life but they were also the very best too. I’m hoping things …

“P1 was the thing that kept my grandad fit and active at 82 years old”

There was me crying earlier over boobies whilst my grandparents experienced their last ever Thursday with P1! My grandparents have been amazing. Since finding out I was pregnant at the young age of 15 they’ve always been there supporting me, through thick and thin. Whether it was help with money, words or just by being them, I knew I could …

“I better wipe the tears and get on with housework”

My OH has gone to London today, P1 has gone to my grandparents house and I’m at home with P2. Massaging my lumpy boob and watching P2 play with the label on our dinner tray. It’s been 48 hours since I last fed my girl by boobie. I was absolutely fine about it, until now, where I have time to …

“I can wear whatever clothes I like and that feels fantastic!”

As I’m sitting here now at 6pm, I haven’t breastfed or expressed for over 31 hours and I’d like to add that my boobies are also finding this fine. Now despite the fact P2 is still sharing a bed occasionally most the night, last night she slept perfectly from 12:30 – 7am! I’m not feeling as emotional anymore about giving …
