My Healthy Habit with Juice Plus – Start Day

Today I’ve started my healthy eating diet with Juice Plus. It means a lot more to me than just losing weight. It’s about my health. For a very long time I’ve been eating around ten or more biscuits each day and the meals I eat have been easy-to-cook options like pizza or ready meals. It’s become a habit and if …

“P3 has smiled!”

On the 20th November 2014, at 7 weeks and 3 days old, P3 has smiled! It’s isn’t wind, although I was dubious at first, she’s actually smiling. Little smiles at the moment and I don’t think she has much control over it at the moment. That was the first one I managed to capture on camera, it’s slightly wonky and …

World Prematurity Day 2014 – My Premature Birth Story

Today is World Prematurity Day. Around the world each year 15 million babies are born too soon. In 2008, I was part of that statistic when I welcomed P1 7 weeks early. In that same year the idea came to raise awareness of the serious issues that these babies and their families face and so World Prematurity Day was born. …

“I was meeting new people and could be whoever I wanted to be”

When P1 was born I didn’t attend any antenatal or baby groups, I was shy and very self conscious about being a teenage mum. With P2 I wanted to be different, I didn’t attend any antenatal groups but when she arrived I made sure I went to baby groups. We enjoyed a weekly session of baby yoga, I went to …

6 Week Check Up and Body Image Problems

We had our six week check up today. I was asked whether my bleeding had stopped, which it has about two days ago, apparently it takes longer for a breastfeeding mother to finish the post-partum bleeding which I found quite interesting to know. I was asked how the feeding was going and how my breasts are, well I think my …

October Half Term 2014

We always seem to suck when it comes to organising things to do over the school holidays. I tend to plan in my head but never put those plans into action. This October half term has been completely different to our usual school holidays. It feels like we haven’t stopped! It started on Saturday with P1 going away for the …

“We are booked to see Disney On Ice 100 Years Of Magic at the O2”

Ice skating holds a very special place in my heart. Before I had P1 I used to attend lessons and was pretty good. I own my own pair of skates and it was the only hobby I stuck with until I got pregnant. Then there’s Disney, who doesn’t love Disney films with all their magic and touching storylines with fantastic …

Luckily notonthehighstreet.com came to my rescue when they asked me to download and review their Storytime Sounds app. It’s free to download from the App Store. The app …

“The post-pregnancy new-mother hormones raged”

Yesterday was an awful day full of P3 crying continuously from 7am until 6pm and having a total of about 15 minutes sleep the whole entire day whilst I also tackled the needs of a very poorly toddler so this morning I’d decided to get the two of them out of the house for some fresh air and use the …

“The newborn crying, the demands of a sick child and a bored toddler”

We are being pulled in every direction this week. We have illness, crying, boredom, testing behaviour and exhaustion. P1 has been under the weather since Friday. She came home with a croaky voice but other than that she was fine. It progressed over the weekend into a temperature, sore throat, headache and a cough. She certainly wasn’t herself and spent …

What can you not bare to leave behind when holidaying in the UK?

Planning a holiday can be extremely stressful, add children to it and you can end up wondering if going on holiday is really worth all the stress! I couldn’t think of anything worse than going abroad with three young children and my hubby would need a lot of persuading. However, traveling within the UK doesn’t need so much persuasion and …
