There’s A Gas Leak In Our House

The weather has been pretty rubbish lately which is just typical seeing as it's the school holidays. On Sunday the sun actually made an appearance for a little while and so we headed to a lovely country pub we have found recently. It has bouncy castles, delicious food and two gorgeous golden retrievers. We always have such a brilliant time …

Fearing For Our Future – Another Terrorist Attack

I was woken up this morning to the sound of P2 shouting “Mummy” at 5:30am. This is normal and it’s something that drives me insane every single day. As I got back into bed I checked my phone and there was a notification from our lovely friend in Orlando. She asked if we were all ok and that she was …

Forest School For Toddlers

Meterologically Spring has started. I can’t tell you just how happy I am to see the back of winter. I’ve been a proper recluse in terms of our outdoor adventures. I’ve avoided the park, we’ve not really been to any National Trust places and I’ve definitely preferred the comfort of my home and my joggers. But with Spring, comes the …

I’m not really scared of hospitals or medical appointments anymore. I don’t think you really can be when you’ve spent the good part of the past eight years visiting various hospital regularly with your first born.

Why Is Our World Like This?

It sends shivers down my spine to think about yesterday’s events in Woolwich. A solider was brutally murdered. It’s disgusting. The whole situation is disgusting. It always sickens me when people murder. My thoughts go to the families that get effected by that one person who takes it upon themselves to take someone else’s life! I think we are all …

Co-Sleeping In The News

My Twitter and Facebook have gone absolutely crazy about co-sleeping. The news has come out with yet another report about it. I feel quite angry about it all – there’s so many different views on co-sleeping and parenting that it’s hard to know what you’re meant to do with your baby. I co-sleep. Not all the time, but more often than not. …

Do You Lock Your Car Doors?

I read something on the Sky News app today about man stealing a car which had a two month old baby in the back who he then strangled and buried in snow. This is quite clearly disgusting and I will never understand what goes through the minds of others but it made me think of all the times I’ve left …

40 Acts – Day 5 – Read The Local News

It’s simple. Pick up the newspaper from the doormat. Make yourself a mug of tea. Slowly read the paper. Each time it mentions a person or a street, lift them up before God and ask for his blessing. Don’t miss out on the adverts, especially if they are about local businesses. Then look for the names of the editor and …
