The General Election & The MADS Blog Awards

So today, we packed the kids up and headed to our local polling station. I felt really nervous actually. I have no idea how the whole “politics” thing works and I certainly haven’t been following each party to know what they are promising. I woke this morning and had a quick look over each party’s websites to see if anything …

Letter To My Princess 2 – 2 Years 3 Months

To my Princess 2, I just can’t believe that you are 27 months already. In the scheme of things that is such a short amount of time yet it feels like you’ve been in our world for a lot longer. I cant believe how well you are progressing with your personality. You are such a cheeky little girl and you …

I’m Going to BritMums Live 2015

I blogged about my sponsor for BritMums Live this year being Fisher-Price, that can be viewed here, and now I wanted to join in with the BritMums linky as I’m completely awful with remembering faces and names, I’ll usually know who you are by your child rather than the actual blogger themselves. Plus, I’m super shy so want to prewarn …

Why Blogging Is A 24/7 Job

I think I was always destined to write. As a child I spent hours at a little desk in the kitchen writing stories. None of these stories were ever finished despite my dream of having a book published one day. I wish I still had the hundreds of sheets of paper that I went through. Really I am still writing …

Siblings April 2015

This month has seen a significant change in my set of sisters. Their youngest sister is now sitting, still slightly wobbly, but she’s sitting and that’s what counts. It has meant that P3 is now slightly more interesting to P2 who hasn’t really taken true notice of her until now, suddenly she wants to play with her baby sister rather than …

Letter to my Princess 2 – 2 Years 2 Months

To my Princess 2, It feels like such a long time ago that it was your birthday. You have been two for two months now! We’ve just had the most amazing Easter together and you’ve eaten far too many chocolate eggs and the little face you pull when you know you shouldn’t have unwrapped the lump of chocolate in your …

My Sunday Photo – 29/03/2015

I’ve seen so many bloggers joining in with a Sunday photo linky so here’s mine: I chose this picture as with P1 a school the majority of the week it feels like we hardly ever get to spend any real time with her. Yesterday, at our local duck pond that we always go to, they were holding a model boat …

Since turning 6 you’ve started your Early Literacy Support sessions at school. I’ve really seen your writing improve. I didn’t think you were struggling but after …

A Potty Training Update for P2

We are about to hit 10 weeks mark so I thought it best I update you all on our progress so far. P2 is young for potty training in my opinion, but when she insisted back in January I couldn’t just ignore it. She didn’t grasp the concept very well. In fact there were many days when I spent the whole …

Siblings March 2015

In true fashion, I left taking our sibling photos until the last minute, today to be precise, and typically things didn’t go to plan. I wanted my sibling photos to not only represent them as sisters but to be adventurous and ones to keep in the family album. My plan was to take them outside as the weather has been …

Being A Mum

Being a mum means carrying her in my womb. It means watching her take her first breath. Being a mum means changing her nappy for the first time and the 1000th time.  It means dressing her for the first time and the 1000th time. Being a mum means watching her open her eyes to the world. It means holding …

To My Princess 2 – 2 Years 1 Month

To my Princess 2, We had your two year check the other day. I didn’t have any real concerns about your development. I think you’re doing fantastically. We discussed all the things you do and don’t do. We were told off for being lazy with your dummy and milk situation. The health visitor is completely right and gave us an …

Inspirational Entrepreneurs for Work-at-Home Mums

Many mums face a great dilemma after having children: to go back into full-time work or be a full-time stay-at-home parent. It is never an easy decision to make, especially when money is tight. However, there is an alternative to full-time employment: working from home. A generation ago there were very few options for women who wanted to remain at …
