“We’ve just had a four day weekend”

I am the type of person that is quite content with lazying around the house. After a while it does start to feel like you’re in jail, sharing your cell with screeching children, which is why I now make the effort to attend two play groups a week with P2 and P3. I met a lovely lady well over a …

10 Ways to Entertain Kids on a Road Trip

P1 has always been really good on car journeys, she’d fall asleep pretty instantly or she sits quietly listening to the radio and singing.

I want to be a woman not just a mum!

Last year my hubby bought me a subscription to the Cosmopolitan magazine. I was given a choice as to what I wanted but I chose this one because I wanted something separate from the topic of parenting. I’ve never been into fashion, makeup or girly things.

“Hubby does all of his tasks without moaning”

I’ve struggled with motivation for a long time and if you’re a regular reader you’ll know that. I’m someone who would much rather be lazying on the sofa in my pjs than running around a supermarket.

Aden + Anais Starburst Cozy Plus Sleeping Bag Review

I don’t use blankets during nap or night time with P3. I’m scared to. I get a sickening feeling in my tummy when I see photos of other babies wrapped up in a blanket. I used blankets for P1 every day and I used them for P2 only less regularly. When P3 was born the only way she’d sleep was …
