Where Did That Come From

After what seems like so many broken nights of sleep, last night was a tad different. Rather unusual and very nice. P2 had fallen asleep at about 8pm, on top of our bed whilst I sat and worked on creating our new business spreadsheets. She was quite unsettled but didn’t feed. She then woke at about 10pm for an hour, …

Sleepy In The Heatwave

I’ve been feeling really down recently. In a sort of hole that I can’t seem to climb out of. I’ll be fine all day, right up until when P1 goes to bed. I’ll just be quiet and down, then randomly cry. I really think it’s a lack of sleep causing this. P2 has been waking and feeding every two hours …

Fly Away

You are all going to think I’m really pathetic with this post but it has to be done. This weather has been amazing. I hate how everyone complains about the cold, wet typical British weather, yet moan when it’s wonderfully hot and sunny!! Why?! I’ve been making use of my Grandparents, MiL and finally our garden at any given opportunity. …

School Appeal Hearing

Life has been utterly crazy recently. I feel like I’m knee deep in wedding planning, business planning and parenting. To top that off, our Internet is down at home which means I’m stuck with shoddy iPhone Internet. Today, well today was really scary! We had our school appeal hearing today. My OH and I dressed up, him in his suit …

Riding A Bike

My grandad has been teaching P1 to ride her bike. He bought her a beautiful bike, pink with a seat for her toys, stabilisers and even a bell attached. It’s been about a year. At first it was reported that she would only pedal backwards. I hadn’t yet witnessed her on her bike until today. P1 was amazing! She actually …

I Can’t Believe It

Morning everyone, I wasn’t sure whether to inform everyone yet, but think I will as the excitement is taking over just a tiny bit.   I will soon be a business woman, with my OH anyway… We are about to launch our new online store for baby. We’ve been talking about owning a business for such a long time and …

Family Dynamics

Families are funny little creatures. We all have one. It doesn’t just end at your parents or siblings, oh no, it extends to great lengths really. My family itself is totally confusing. My mum has been married three times, I have a younger half brother and a younger step sister. I have a stepdad, who’s family alone would confuse you. …

Over And Done With… Look To The Future

P1 finished school Wednesday. She came home with two books full of bits and bobs she’s done since moving into the “Badgers” room. It made me so proud to see everything and read all the wonderful comments about my daughter. When I picked her up, all her nursery friends went running up to her and gave her the biggest of …

Co-Sleeping Troubles

Co-sleeping has taken a turn for the worse, if you’re my OH, or for the better if you are me. I keep accidentally falling asleep with feeding, which in this heat is pretty easy. P2 will start in her cot and end up in our bed. I have no issues with that whilst she’s small. However, a few nights ago …

The End Of An Era

It’s an emotional Mummy day today. P1 finishes nursery for 6 weeks leading up to the start of big school (which we still have no idea of where she’ll go) I tried to prepare P1 as much as possible. She’s an intelligent girl and I wanted her to have the chance to say goodbye and enjoy herself on her last …

Heatwave

Our breastfeeding journey has been pretty straight forward, only crack sore nipples this time round. Today, I’m worrying. This heat is beautiful and I love being in the sun, but P2 just isn’t feeding properly. One minute she’s feeding all the time, the next she’s really unhappy by my boob and squirms and cries. I’m worried I’m not drinking enough, …

Mr Sun, Sun, Mr Golden Sun, Please Shine Down On Me!

We retreated to my MiLs yesterday. After the police had been to take statements about my OHs bike, he desperately wanted to be with his Mum. Understandable. He needed a distraction to the devastation he’s feeling inside. My OH, of course, is still struggling to come to terms with the fact someone could just so easily take his bike from …

KTM RC8 Stolen!

Today was meant to be a wonderful day. The sun is out, we had plans of going round my Grandparents with the paddling pool, taking my wedding bag along with us and spend some time sorting what we have done and what there’s still to do with my OH. I was excited. All of that has been completely and utterly …

To my Princess 2 – 5 Months

To my Princess 2, This month you have really started to grow your personality more and more. This month we went to a Young Mums group. We’ve only been once though as I really missed having Thursday as my day at home with you in our pjs. You’ve moved into your cotbed now and I’m really missing having you so …

Carry On As Normal – I’m Not Here

I’ve had 5 days of my OH being at home. I was dreading his work contract finishing in all honesty, I really thought we’d end up spending too much time together, get under each others toes and generally annoy each other. But it’s been far from that! He’s been so helpful whilst he’s been off. I don’t remember the last …

Medela Electric Swing Breast Pump Review

I’ve been experiencing a really bad time when it comes to expressing with P2. I was convinced it was my fault, that I wasn’t producing enough milk or that my body just didn’t like to express. I now realise that it wasn’t my actual ability to express that was the issue, it was the ability of the pump I was …

Weaning Begins

We started weaning yesterday. I’ve purchased a book called Yummy Discoveries – Baby-Led Weaning. Yup, we’ve/I’ve decided to go with baby-led weaning with P2. I’m doing everything differently with her it seems; cloth nappies, breastfeeding, co-sleeping and now the weaning! She had baby rusks as her first taste a few weeks ago, but yesterday marked us properly beginning the weaning. …

The Worst Thing In Life Is Death

I keep thinking about my Nan recently. The way she’s gradually becoming more frail. I don’t really remember a day where she was fighting fit and jumping about, she’s always had to catch her breath when walking long distances – that’s my Nan. That’s who she is and has always been. But once upon a time she could play with …

Saaf Skincare Eraser Body Oil Review

We’ve been trying out Saaf Skincare Eraser Body Oil for the past month. When I say we I mean my Mum. She’s been suffering from some dark itchy areas on her shins so when the bottle arrived I thought it would be a great product for her to test drive. The product comes in a lovely clear squirt bottle. I …

I Made It – Finally

It’s been absolutely ages since I’ve been to church. Well, 18 weeks and before that it would about a year! I’m a dreadful Christian. It’s not like I don’t believe, I do, I pray every night with P1 and on my own. It’s purely because on a Sunday we are usually so busy visiting my MiL or spending time as …
