“I don’t really know what careers there are in writing”

I want to learn something. I don’t know what. I’m interested in becoming a nail technician so that I can do it in my spare time. I’m also very interested in law, but gave up on the open university course that I started last year whilst pregnant. I’m the type of person that craves things but never finishes things. I …

To My Princess 1 – 4 Years 9 Months

To my Princess 1, Unfortunately this past month has been a horrible one for the whole family. In your first day of school, 3rd September 2013, you were sent home early because you fell and you clamped down on your tongue cussing quite a bit of damage. We took you to A&E. This was also the day that Great-Nanny went …

“The motivation for it just isn’t there at the moment”

I’m really struggling this week to get out of bed. The motivation for it just isn’t there at the moment. Last week was absolutely fine. My routine was this; 6:45am wake up, have shower, put dressing gown on, give P1 her breakfast at 7:15am, do washing up, tidying up, get P1 into her school uniform, let her watch some telly, …

“I can’t remember half the things I’ve wanted to post about”

I’ve drained my data allowance on my phone, and our home has no Internet set up just yet. I’m getting withdrawals of blogging and to be honest, I can’t remember half the things I’ve wanted to post about. So I thought I’d just give you a quick update in photos! I’ll be back very soon! Find me on Facebook & …

“Not only was P1 sent home from school we also ended up in A&E”

It never occurred to me that I’d get a phone call to collect P1 from her first day at school. But it was just our luck. The morning went swimmingly. I woke P1 up, gave her the porridge I’d cooked for her, got her dressed, teeth and hair done. She was excited about wearing her princess backpack and we went …

“she’ll be the smallest but with the biggest attitude”

Oh no! The time has come. She’s been bathed, fed, stories read, a long chat and on time bedtime… Yup, P1 is starting her school career tomorrow! Tomorrow?! I swear it doesn’t seem real. I think back of my school memories. They were the toughest years of my life but they were also the very best too. I’m hoping things …

To My Princess 1 – 4 Years 8 Months

To my Princess 1, I seriously cannot believe that you’ll be starting school in less than two weeks. It seems like such a long time ago that you were a tiny baby like your sister and so dependent on me. You’ve grown up ridiculously this past month. Finally able to put your own clothes on and the majority of the …

Appeal Unsuccessful

Guess what? P1 doesn’t have a school. Yup. Our appeal was unsuccessful and I found this out the day before we went on holiday! We are half way through the school holidays. This is meant to be a time where my OH and I were going to part with lots of cash buying uniforms and stationary for our daughter. She …

School Appeal Hearing

Life has been utterly crazy recently. I feel like I’m knee deep in wedding planning, business planning and parenting. To top that off, our Internet is down at home which means I’m stuck with shoddy iPhone Internet. Today, well today was really scary! We had our school appeal hearing today. My OH and I dressed up, him in his suit …

No More?!

We worked out that P1 has four nursery sessions left. That’s just two more weeks before the government funding finishes and I’ll be taking her out of nursery until she starts school in September. I’m feeling really sad about the whole situation for several reasons. P1 has been going to the same nursery since she was 10months old. She wasn’t …

My Stressed Pre-Schooler

Something seems to be troubling P1. I’m not sure if it’s the nursery teaching her about going to school, the fact her biological Dad was mentioned at the hospital last week or even something to do with P2. Recently, she’s been very attached to me. Crying when I drop her off to my GrandParents or getting clearly upset when dropping …

Scissor Addiction

The title of this makes it sound like a really bad post but it’s not! Whilst at my Grandad’s P1 has been learning how to cut things out with scissors. I can’t believe how grown up she is getting.     She’s always asking to use the scissors now, part of me gets all nervous about her chopping her fingers …

School Disappointment

3:30am – P2 is having a feed. It’s been a restless night so far. Check my emails to see we have already received P1s primary school offer. Nearly burst into tears as she’s not been offered where we applied! We viewed three schools in the area, you are meant to put three schools of choice down. We hated two out …
