Getting Through The Sickness Bug

I suffer quite badly with migraines and I spend nearly every day worrying about when my next one will come on. They happen with no warning and I haven’t quite found out what the triggers are yet. Parenting with a migraine is absolutely awful. All you want to do is hide away and sleep it off but you just can’t …

My Sunday Photo 2016 – #16/52

This weekend has been a bit of a wash out. It’s the first weekend that we’ve had a fully fixed and working car since the beginning of March. We had plans to go for the evening swim we’d agreed to do every two weeks but only ever managed to do it once because of the car. Saturday morning we’d agreed …

Under all the activities and excitement we’ve had the past few days, P3 has had a week where she’s been quite under the weather.

We arrived home feeling quite tired and needing to get dinner on before bedtime only to find out the house had been invaded by ants!! It isn’t the first time it’s happened. About a week ago they started …

“My daughter is far stronger than I will ever be”

Children are amazing little creatures. The strength they have and the determination is incredible. I saw all of this inside my tiny 5 year old daughter when she went through her growth hormone test yesterday. We arrived at the hospital at 8:45am. My Grandad came to support whilst hubby had P2 for the day. P1 hadn’t asked for food or …

I’m at that stage where I just look like I’ve been eating too much chocolate cake… Oh wait I have! I’m struggling to dress myself as I’ve always worn quite tight items of clothing. I feel fat and frumpy in anything I dare to wear. However, my boobies are slowly creeping towards my breastfeeding size so that’s a little bonus …

“P1 has concussion”

It’s been a rather traumatic day today. A day where my life flashed before me. Terror. Worry. Upset. Guilt. I arrived at the school just like normal to pick P1 up. P1 had her head laying on her book bag facing away from me, she’s done this before, another Mummy joked that she was asleep. I tapped her and said …
