30/31: My Earliest Memories

I have quite a few memories from my childhood. I can’t quite pick one as being earlier than the other. 1) We lived adjoined to a veterinary surgery, the one where my mum worked, and I have so many memories of being there. I remember playing between the big bags of dog food stacked on shelves. I remember watching kittens …

28/31: My Biggest Source Of Inspiration

I couldn’t choose between my Nan or my Grandad so I’m going to write why both of them are my biggest inspirations. My Nan I cannot remember a time where she was 100% well. She’d always get out of breath walking to town but she never really let it effect any of us. As things got worse, yes she’d complain …

27/31: Overcoming A Difficult Situation

At just 21 years on this earth (very nearly 22) I’ve had quite a few difficult situations to contend with. I keep telling myself it’s all part of the journey through life but sometimes I feel like shouting “give me a break!!!” The main difficult situation occurred when I was just 15 years old. It was when I found out …

George at Asda Light Denim Shorts Review

I love shopping for the girls clothes in supermarkets. George at Asda particularly have a lovely range for children’s clothes for an excellent price but I rarely get myself anything in the supermarket. We were recently sent some denim shorts to review. Obviously, I’m pregnant at the moment so I can’t actually do the shorts up right now, but funny …

“The result was what I’d feared”

We have an outbuilding. It’s a building with electricity and water. It’s quite large. It houses our freezer, our washing machine and the tumble dryer. Lately, it’s also been our dump spot. Everyone has one. Usually it’s a drawer or a cupboard we just throw things into a pretend that it’ll get sorted later or next week, or even next …

16/31: I’ve Won The Lottery

Ok ok, I haven’t. The odds for winning the lottery is pretty slim compared to winning on the slot machines or by placing a bet on the horses. This weekend the Euromillions prize is set to £43,000,000. That’s a lot of zeros!! We very rarely play the lottery but if we did, and won, here’s a list of some of …

14/31: Why Do You Blog?

Today’s prompt is “why do you blog?” and I had actually started writing a post like this a week or so ago but ended up deleting it. It just didn’t sound right. Hopefully this time it does. I’ve technically been blogging since 2011 but that first blog I created was very basic and actually quite depressing to read over. Although …

Fisher-Price Discover Your Way

I’ve been really enjoying not having to get up straight away in the mornings and not having an alarm set now that it’s the school holidays. It’s bliss, however this morning my alarm was set for 5:45am, 6am, 6:15am and then when my eyes refused to open I reset it to 6:30am! As I was rinsing the conditioner from my …

“Today has been a productively strange day”

Today has been a productively strange day. With P1 away on a double night sleepover with her Great-Grandad, P2 woke up at 6:50am. She snuggled in bed with us for about ten minutes before I took her downstairs for breakfast and some cBeebies. It was a slow morning really, hubby joined us downstairs and we just mooched. Hubby then went …

Pregnancy Diaries – 30 Weeks #3

Somebody asked me yesterday how far gone I was and I was quite shocked when I realised that I was 30 weeks tomorrow. How crazy is that?! I’m thirty weeks out of 40. There’s only ten more weeks to go!!!! I feel a bit relieved if I’m honest. It’s a little naive of me really but I feel more positive …
