Pregnancy Diaries – 34 Weeks #3

I’m getting increasingly nervous now. The fact that I have 6 weeks until my due date, but only 3 weeks until I’m classed as “term”. It’s scary. You’d think that I would be a pro at pregnancy and birth by now but I think the fact I only gave birth last year means that it’s all still so fresh in …

“I’m nowhere near prepared for the return to school”

If it wasn’t for the blogging world I think I would have lost track of the time that seems to be flying by. I’d been feeling incredibly anxious about the summer holidays but we’ve been having a really good time. We’ve managed to fit in quite a few little bits to entertain the girls and P1 has also done plenty …

25/31: A Moment In My Day

Are you taking part in the Blog Every Day In August challenge hosted by Outmumbered?? Today’s prompt is to capture a moment of your day and share it. The weather has been awful. The kids have been awful. Hubby hasn’t been feeling 100%. So basically the mood of the household is pretty bad. During P2s nap I decided to sit …

To My Princess 1 – 5 Years 8 Months

To my Princess 1, This month has been a pretty busy one really. It’s the school holidays and although we haven’t done too much, the things you’ve been doing have been pretty exhausting. Just the past week you travelled to London with Great-Grandad to visit Buckingham Palace and the Royal Mews. You had a wonderful time and I hope that …

“The result was what I’d feared”

We have an outbuilding. It’s a building with electricity and water. It’s quite large. It houses our freezer, our washing machine and the tumble dryer. Lately, it’s also been our dump spot. Everyone has one. Usually it’s a drawer or a cupboard we just throw things into a pretend that it’ll get sorted later or next week, or even next …

A Visit To Buckingham Palace

I relied on my Grandparents for childcare when I was working, they looked after P1 three times a week until my Nan’s health really got bad, but then it was still two times a week. P1 has learnt so much from her Great-Grandparents and she’s been extremely lucky to have spent so much time with them. My Nan’s death didn’t …

“The very precious sibling bond”

I never realised just how dependent P2 was on her big sister. A couple of weeks ago P1 went for a sleep over with my Grandad (their Great-Grandad) and originally it was meant to be for one night which turned into two nights. P1 had a fantastic time and actually came back really upset from missing him. But back at …

15/31: My Dream Travel List

I haven’t really been to very many places so far so my dream destination list is pretty big. I cannot see myself visiting many of them any time soon due to kids and finances but I suppose that’s why it’s a dream list. 1) Canada. Hubby has family out there and I’ve heard so many stories that make me want …

LamaLoLi My Little Pony PJ Set & Top Review

When P1 was born I went over the top with buying clothes. Especially when I started work and was earning for myself. The nursery used to laugh and joke that they’d never seen P1 in the same outfit twice, which was slightly embarrassing in a way as she attended nursery three times a week! P2 has been a totally different …

10/31: 3 Items Off My Bucket List

I don’t have a bucket list maybe I should write one. A list of things I’d like to do or achieve before the age of 30, because saying before I die is a little negative and scary! However, I do think I can think of 3 things that I’ve achieved in my life that I’m proud of and I’m going …

Pregnancy Diaries – 31 Weeks #3

My energy levels have stooped. I’m so exhausted this week I’ve been going to bed quite quickly after the girls. Despite this though I’ve had motivation appear from nowhere to sort the kitchen cupboards and even walk to Tesco to grab a few bits and bobs here and there. I’m going to blame my pregnancy on this next thing I’ve …

“Today has been a productively strange day”

Today has been a productively strange day. With P1 away on a double night sleepover with her Great-Grandad, P2 woke up at 6:50am. She snuggled in bed with us for about ten minutes before I took her downstairs for breakfast and some cBeebies. It was a slow morning really, hubby joined us downstairs and we just mooched. Hubby then went …
