“I’ve never had a member of the family that has Alzheimer’s”

Something in the news has really touched me. A man seeking love after his wife is stricken with Alzheimer’s. I’m trying my hardest to understand his point of view but I’m struggling. I’ll put it bluntly. I think he’s selfish. I’ve never had a member of the family that has Alzheimer’s, so really I can’t comment, but my Grandad stood …

“I’m kicking myself for swapping the rooms around to be honest”

I don’t know how we managed to co sleep for 6 months. I’m a complete lover of co sleeping don’t get me wrong. Back when P2 was more of a potato and breastfeeding, it was easier and it actually meant we got more sleep between us! It’s been terrible the past week. I’ve not slept from fear of P2 choking …

“It’s 28 days until Christmas”

Nan didn’t get a chance to have …

“I’m so glad I made the decision to go green and use cloth”

I’m an ex-disposable nappy Mummy. I used them for nearly 3 years with P1. I used them up until P2 was 3 months old. I now use cloth nappies. I’m absolutely addicted to the variety of styles and colours that I can choose from to match P2s outfits. This week she’s been poorly so I’ve been going through nappies like …

“I love onesies!”

I’ve wanted a onesie since they arrived to the fashion scenes last winter but I never got one. Mainly because I thought they wouldn’t do my size being only 4ft 8in tall! My friend A gave me one Friday. I have not stopped wearing it since that evening. They are even more comfy than pjs. No wonder it’s the main …

“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 …
