Happy 82nd Birthday!

My Grandad is 82 today! He’ll never read this because he’s a typical old man and doesn’t have the Internet. My Grandad is truly the most amazing man on this earth. Sorry to my OH. He’s always been there for me, through thick and thin. I love you Grandad! And Happy Birthday.

Illness To Rein Again

I think due to the recent lack of sleep I’ve been experiencing my immune system is well and truly down and has let in another stinking cold! I’m bunged up to the extent it actually make me sick. My head feels like it’s going to explode at any minute and my throat feels like I’ve been downing fire sticks!! Ouch! …

Why Is Our World Like This?

It sends shivers down my spine to think about yesterday’s events in Woolwich. A solider was brutally murdered. It’s disgusting. The whole situation is disgusting. It always sickens me when people murder. My thoughts go to the families that get effected by that one person who takes it upon themselves to take someone else’s life! I think we are all …

Pinot Grigio

I’ve decided to start planning our wedding again. I stopped when everything went belly up, it felt like my dreams were crashing down around me and I didn’t want to get excited about anything. Everything went in the bin regarding our wedding day. But there’s absolutely no harm now, after all… One day we’ll have our wedding day! Last night, …

Running On … Zilch

I don’t think I’ve ever had such a bad nights sleep. It was seriously dreadful. I was disturbed by every member of my little family; My OH, P1 and of course P2! P1 came home from my Grandparents asleep so we put her straight to bed as it was her bedtime anyway. P2 didn’t go to sleep until 11pm. My …

Baby Yoga

I hate Mother (Parent) and Baby Groups… As in I feel so uncomfortable about them not that there’s anything actually wrong with the groups. I always feel like people are watching me and judging me because I am a young Mum. I felt slightly out of place at the Breast Feeding group and thought I was definitely more suited to …

Co-Sleeping In The News

My Twitter and Facebook have gone absolutely crazy about co-sleeping. The news has come out with yet another report about it. I feel quite angry about it all – there’s so many different views on co-sleeping and parenting that it’s hard to know what you’re meant to do with your baby. I co-sleep. Not all the time, but more often than not. …

Festival

Considering we didn’t actually get to sleep until about 11:30pm because of arriving home late from Kent. P2 slept from 11:30 until 6:10am this morning. Technically, a full night sleep because I wasn’t woken up by her. I haven’t really talked about my Christian life much. I used to attend church every Sunday, but when I met my OH it …

Sunday Specials

P1 seems to have lost all social skills today. The amount of times she’s been on the naughty step! We’ve had a day at the MiLs. It’s always nice going there because there’s so many toys for P1 to play with that she can’t physically get bored. Plus it’s been quite decent weather so she’s spent a lot of her …

Sweet Dreams

((Quick reminder that I am on Twitter and also on Facebook so getting following/liking)) Since having P2 I’ve posted about how she only poops every few days. Well today was that day. When she has her clear out it’s always quite a mess. When wearing disposables it would leak out of her nappy in all directions, onto her vest and …

DP – Feed Your Senses

Write down the first sight, sound, smell, and sensation you experienced on waking up today. Pick the one you’re most drawn to, and write. (For a bigger challenge, pick the one you’re least drawn to.) I laughed when I read my DP email today. Absolutely perfect. This morning: Well, I woke facing away from my OH, my first sight was …

Saturday’s Goings On

Last night P1 had an evening out with my Mum & D. So my OH offered to take P2 and me out for a Wimpy dinner. I managed to enjoy a lovely quiet meal with my OH without P2 waking up. Well she woke as I was having my last mouthful. We sat and chatted about all sorts of things, …

Where Are You? Why Aren’t You?

Since researching and reviewing Green Pomelo cloth nappies I’ve been really aware of everything nappy related and washable related. I actually love cloth nappies now and I’m certainly converted. But the ease of buying things for them is difficult. They don’t sell cloth nappies in stores but there’s a whole aisle of disposable nappies and wipes!! On the tv, there’s …

The Day From Hell … Is It Over Yet?

Don’t let that cute little face fool you. P2 has officially been a nightmare! A loveable nightmare but a nightmare all the same. The past few days have been a struggle with her. I’ve got to reform some sort of routine because she’s completely changed the way she runs things. Her night time has changed from 10pm to sometimes earlier …

Makeup On Children

I caught P1 using a pen to draw on her eyelids and a highlighter over her face. Quite tasteful colours actually. She told me it was her makeup. She must watch me putting my makeup on all the time and it never occurred to me that she would want to do the same. But of course she would, she’s a …

That First Giggle

I cannot believe it. For weeks I’ve been trying to get P2 to laugh. Pulling so many faces, getting my voice to places I never knew it could reach and generally being rather silly – now they weren’t failures, she smiles at me constantly. I sneezed. She giggled. Yup, an accidental sneeze as I was clearing up the biggest, leakiest …

Bloods Tests For My Four Year Old

After a really bad night with P2, I was up early and down the hospital for 8:40am. I had to put P1 through having blood tests. She used to always have blood tests when she was a baby. But the last time she had anything like this was her jabs or her MRI (I can’t remember which was last). For …

She Just Loves Her Mumma!

I love the closeness I get from co-sleeping with P2. But in all honesty I haven’t co-slept in ages!! Last night, I was pretty much forced to co-sleep. P2 didn’t fall asleep until 11pm. She was put in her Moses as normal. She then woke up at 12:15!!!!!!!!! I fed her, then when she was fast asleep, I put her …

De-Cluttering Our Life

I feel like I’m fighting an endless battle with my bedroom. We have so much stuff and not enough storage. I want to de-clutter. I know for a fact half the stuff in this bedroom will never get used or is just pointless. So it’s my mission to revamp this bedroom. It’s going to be hard, there’s little working space …
