A Dramatic Day

This morning started off pretty normal. It’s a Thursday so the plan was to get ready for playgroup. P2 and P3 at home for the day and P1 heading off to school with hubby. That’s our Thursday routine. But for some reason despite the sun shining beautifully, this Thursday didn’t want to be our usual Thursday day. I got ready …

Why Do Babies Cry?

Babies: For newborns, crying is their main way of communicating. Toddlers: Toddlers cry because they’re hungry, tired, uncomfortable or need affection – just like babies. Preschoolers and school-age children: Children tend to cry less as they get older. Once they can talk, it’s much easier for them to tell you why they’re upset and what they need. Why do we …

“The reality is I’ve been in my onesie all day sitting on the sofa”

Although I’m posting this today, Tuesday, I’m actually writing it yesterday. Confusing but I wanted to publish this yesterday but the video which is hopefully now below took literally all day to load to my computer. Blooming technology. As I’m writing this there’s a faint sound of snoring, I can hear Hubby downstairs watching YouTube videos and I’m sinking into …

“I hate Autumn!”

The weather seems to get blamed for quite a few things. This time I’m blaming it for my lack of mojo to blog. It also seems I’m not alone in my missing inspiration as a few other bloggers have recently declared a dry patch, ironically seeing as the weather certainly isn’t dry! We are only a few weeks into Autumn …

“My hair is falling out”

I didn’t necessarily decide to have long hair. It just grew and I’m awful for attending hairdressers. I’ve been once a year sometimes less since having children. But I didn’t think I’d ever be sitting in the position I currently am. My hair is falling out. I expected hair loss after pregnancy. It happened with P2 leaving me with an …

“Separation anxiety has consumed P2!”

Have you heard of children experiencing separation anxiety? I have but I’ve never truly experienced it until now. To be honest I think it’s been creeping upon us for a while. I first witnessed the terror myself when P2 panicked and cried because she couldn’t see me amongst the mummy’s on the playground. I had her in complete view but …

Teething Troubles

I find it a struggle to remember the baby days for both P1 and P2. Despite the fact I’m sort of reliving everything now with P3 I still cannot bring back the memories very easily. There’s something in particular that I’ve tried to remember because it feels so different this time round. Teething. I’m guessing that because it wasn’t such …

Letter To My Nan – 2 Months

Hi Nan, Life in Kent finally feels like home. I know you were really unhappy when we told you about the move but I also know that you can see we are happier over here. P1 is doing so well at school! We are all so proud. She’s basically reading short stories on her own, you know the Biff and …

“A victim of domestic abuse”

I don’t think I’ve ever spoke about my past with P1s biological father. I guess because it’s not a very nice topic to talk about. It’s been two years and I think that is what has sparked my need to write about it. When I fell pregnant with P1 at the very young age of fifteen I thought I was …

“I’ve been asked to write something for my Nans funeral”

I’ve been asked to write something for my Nans funeral. Not only was I asked to write, because apparently I’m really good at writing, but I’ve been asked to read out what I’ve written! My Grandad asked me in his really hopeful persuasive way that he has. At first I wasn’t really keen, I’ve never been good at speaking in …

The Death Of My Nan 3rd September 2013

Hi Nan, I briefly saw you this morning, I say this morning but now it’s actually yesterday, we joked about how it was half past nine in the morning and you were still in bed. I told you how P1 had got on going into school. Then I left. I didn’t kiss you goodbye like I have been recently as …

“doctors have diagnosed yet another heart attack”

I’m on my way back from visiting my Nan. Yup, she’s in hospital again. I’m sad to say that it isn’t a shock to us. I’ve watched her go very downhill recently especially since our holiday. We came back to reports from my Grandad of Nan needing a lot of help with every day life, walking, dressing and going to …

Car Crash Trauma

I travelled to Kiddicare yesterday again to get P1 a new carseat. On the way there I noticed a pretty serious accident on the opposite side. All the emergency services, quite a few mashed up cars and a huge pile of traffic building up behind. As I drove past I felt a shiver down my body. A rush of emotions …

Battling Body Perception

I have a friend. A beautiful friend. Yet she looks in the mirror and doesn’t see what everyone else sees. She’s fighting anorexia. Just like thousands of men and women all across the world. What causes someone to hate their own body that much… Bullying maybe? Magazines with their airbrushed models? The NHS says there’s 3 factors that contribute to …
