My Sunday Photo 2018 – Reflecting

We’ve been child free this weekend. It’s felt like quite a while since we had some proper child free time as the past few times has been interupted by chickenpox, a sleepover and being just so busy! The lead up to the summer holidays has already been so incredibly manic. There’s been school trips, days out and so many after …

You Are Not A Failure, You Are Not Alone

Today I realised I am not alone. This sounds silly because there’s honestly so much coverage on the topic that I’m talking about, yet I still felt very lonely. Being a mum of three is hard work. They are draining. They are a constant. I always feel I’m not good enough for them, that they could be having a better …

My Sunday Photo 2018 – Chickenpox!

This week has been all about chickenpox. Very nearly two weeks after P2 first broke out with chickenpox, P1 and P3 came down with it. I plan to write another post all about it but definitely thought that for this weeks My Sunday Photo, it had to be of my biggest baby. She has suffered quite badly this week, I …

My First Proper Experience Of Chickenpox

As you’ve probably guessed by the title, this post is all about Chickenpox. I have wanted my girls to catch the highly contagious disease since they were very younger, like under a year if I’m honest. That may make me seem mean but I just wanted it over and done with. P1 supposedly caught it when she was about two …

My Sunday Photo 2018 – Hating On The Snow This Weekend

On Friday we experienced a short lived snippet of what the spring and summer will look like for my family. It was warm enough to sit outside with no coats on. Yet this weekend we have been graced with more snow. Usually I’d be jumping for joy about the white flakes falling from the sky. Willing it, pleading it to …

Special Needs Diary #14 – Autism Assessment & Orthopaedic Shoes

It already feels like that snowy, winter wonderland we had last week was such a long time ago doesn’t it?! I keep looking at my photos wishing I’d taken more. It was just such a beautiful week. However, for us it also was a pretty awful week for P1. Change effects her hugely as you will know if you’ve followed …

I Had My Breasts Checked

I had the mirena coil fitted two, nearly three, years ago. It was fitted with the view to help my periods be less painful and less heavy. This worked but I’ve felt some major downsides since having it. Huge mood swings, spotty skin and completely irregular periods. About four months ago I began to experience what I thought was another …

My Sunday Photo 2018 – I Had A Piece Of The Beach Inside My Ear

Have you ever taken a shell home from the beach? My girls love to sneak more and more into their pockets in the hope that I won’t catch them. Spending time on the beach is always such an adventure for children. I remember during one of our many trips to the beach when on holiday on the Isle Of Wight …

My Sunday Photo 2018 – Extreme Tiredness

I’ve already failed miserably at this so won’t promise I’ll be joining in every Sunday, but I’ll do my best! This Sunday’s photo is from Wednesday. The previous evening P2 was exhausted.

Special Needs Diary #13 – A Long Needed Update On Our Autism Journey

It’s been nearly a whole year since I last updated or spoke properly about P1’s special needs. It has been such an exhausting year but I think that we are heading in the right direction finally. I learn new things about P1 each day yet it’s hard to actually pin point the differences when people ask us. How do you …

“Mummy! Milky”

I hear the words “Mummy! Milky” day in and day out. It’s a 24/7 occurrence and it comes out of two of my three darling daughters mouths. I honestly feel like I’m going crazily insane about it. It’s controlling nearly every breath I take and I am so tired. I’ll start with P2 seeing as that issue has been the …

Going To The Park With Bassetts Multivitamins #nodulldays

During the summer it is easy to get out and about with our children. The warm weather makes us want to be out in it exploring and going on adventures. As autumn sets in, the days get colder and the sun setting earlier gives us shorter daylight hours, getting outside becomes much more of a chore. The Department Of Health …
