Getting Active With PITCH Brioche Pasquier

We have gone about three months without a car recently and I have never been so active in my life. I think I’ve been living in a mix of complete exhaustion but actually feeling quite good about it. Being active has so many benefits and I definitely think I’ve started to feel some of them in that time. We were …

Big Family Holiday To The Isle Of Wight – Day Seven

A mixture of exhaustion, short tempered children, a bit of sun burn on Hubby’s back and the end of holiday blues, meant that Hubby and I weren’t really feeling our last full day on the Isle of Wight.

P1s Sports Day 2016

I can’t believe that it’s the end of P1s journey as a Key Stage 1 student. She attends a Primary School but when I was her age this would have been her last year in the Infants. In just over six weeks time she’ll be entering the Juniors phase and things are going to get tougher. I always find it amusing …

“I woke up this morning knowing how the day would pan out”

I have been in tears today for two different reasons; complete exhaustion and complete joy. I woke up this morning knowing how the day would pan out. The same as every day at the moment with P1 and P2. There would be arguments, there would be tears, there would be fights between them and the battle would continue strong as …

A Third Child “Brings No Extra Joy” Is this true?

A new study by the London School of Economics and Political Science (LSE) shows that the birth of a first and a second child briefly increases the level of their parents’ happiness, but a third does not. I read the article several times over the social media platforms. Having just given birth to my third it got me thinking. Am …

Pregnancy Diaries – #3 Growth Scan Results

My midwife had slight concerns for P3s growth since I was 28 weeks and measuring a few weeks behind. She sent me for a scan today to make sure everything was actually ok. I hadn’t been that worried until last night and just before the scan when sudden thoughts of the worst kept filling my brain. What if there was …
