“When will Great-Nanny come back from heaven?”

I’ve had a touch of writers block today. Behind the scenes there’s a lot going on and a lot I need to post but my inspiration for words hasn’t been there… Until dinner time came and a certain little madam decided to spark a conversation like no other. Since the death of my Nan I’ve lost a lot of faith …

Christmas Part 1

Yesterday, we celebrated Christmas with my family. Unfortunately, hubby and P2 didn’t make it, but P1 and I had a truly wonderful day and were very spoilt. I’ve been having a toy sort out but to be honest I think I should have just completely got rid of everything we have here apart from those memorable items and started again!! …

“It’s 1996. I’m starring as Mary”

It’s 1996. I’m starring as Mary along side my class mate who is Joseph for the afternoon. I’m wearing a long blue dress that I keep tripping on. Joseph has dropped baby Jesus and the audience of parents, grandparents, aunts and uncles are laughing. I’m nervous and shy as I look out to see my Grandad with his bulky camcorder …

“It’s 28 days until Christmas”

It’s 28 days until Christmas. It feels like it’s suddenly crept up on us. I cannot believe that it was nearly a year ago that we were taking our yearly “generations” photo with my Mum, P1, me and my Nan. 2011 2012We didn’t get a chance to have a generations photo with P2. Nan didn’t get a chance to have …

“I’m definitely feeling a lot calmer about Christmas”

I’m definitely feeling a lot calmer about Christmas. Yesterday, I traipsed my friend and P2 around Lakeside Shopping Centre to do my Christmas shopping. It was such a lovely day and really great to spend some time with someone outside the family. I hadn’t seen A since our wedding day so it was a good time to catch up. We …

“it was little Prince George’s christening today”

My Christening….So it was little Prince George’s christening today. Of course a huge event for the Royals and anyone who follows them. I’m not particularly a follower I’m afraid, of the Royals, I am a follower/believer in God as you all know. Anyway, it got me thinking. My Grandad had made our wedding cake with P2s baptism/christening in mind. The …

“These days apparently the harvest offering is £1”

I experienced my first Harvest Festival as a parent of a reception class child today. P1 has been practising her singing for the past week, a song I used to sing for my harvest festivals. Every single song reminded me of my school days and my harvest festivals back in primary school! I could sing along to the whole festival. …

“I actually went to a baby weigh in clinic”

I’ve started to venture out of the house a little more the past week. I’ve been for a few little walks with P2 in the sling. In fact she’s pretty much lived in her sling recently. But today I actually went to a baby weigh in clinic. Ok, ok, just a baby weigh in clinic. To me it’s a big …

“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 …

Holiday Snaps

So we are home, unpacked and back to reality. Both girls and me are having major holiday withdrawals. P1 is struggling to find anything that amuses her, and P2 is rather down in the dumps. Here’s some of our holiday highlights: Our accommodation All that fresh air has wore them both out Trip to Longleat Safari Rainy stormy weather Cheddar …

New Wine – Day 7 The Last Day

Day 7 – 02/08/13 Last night my OH and I enjoyed a little alcohol… Or in my OHs case half a bottle of whiskey to himself. It was really great to see him fully enjoying himself and being relaxed. I know he’s found this week tough, being the minority in a camp full of Christians. We woke up relatively late …

New Wine – Day 6

Day 6 – 01/08/13 Last nights worship was really odd. I believe in God… I do. But I found it really uncomfortable being around a lot of people that were screaming, shaking and shouting. I found it scary. But the actual worship and talk was amazing! P1 fell over on her way back from the loo and cut her knee …

New Wine – Day 4

Day 4 – 30/07/13 Today has been a really lazy day. We woke up quite late, got up leisurely and plodded about the camp. Today was also wash day for my cloth nappies. I was in two minds whether to just give in and take disposables with me, that was what other cloth users had advised me to do, but …

New Wine – Day 3

Day 3 – 29/07/13 I don’t think I’ve ever heard a child cry so much! There’s a child, of unknown age as I haven’t seen it, that seems to constantly cry! The first night people in our camp were complaining, then yesterday evening I could hear what they meant. The poor child cried for literally a whole hour, maybe more, …
