Our New Cleaning Routine & Win Some Dettol Products

This month has seen some big changes in our house. I have actually managed to keep on top of the housework. It also coincided with the school holidays so it hasn’t been an easy task to keep on top of things and it did fall to pieces one week (the week P1 was away with her Grandparents) but we swiftly …

My Sunday Photo – 03/05/2015

We’ve had a pretty normal week this week. Nothing out of the ordinary except a play date for P1. This weekend, P1 and P2 have been with their Grandparents for their usual monthly sleepover and so we’ve been left with just P3. Previous months we have shipped P3 to my MiL for some child free time to have a meal …

“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 …

Dyson DC34 Multi Floor Cordless Vacuum Cleaner Review

We’ve recently tried a Dyson DC34. This came at just the right time as my cream carpets began to turn a dirty colour with everyone moving stuff in and out of our new home. I suddenly realised that I didn’t have a hoover of any sort to fix this situation. My first impression of the cordless hand hoover was that …

“I’m too squished in here Mummy!”

We’ve had one of those days. It’s been terrible… But the outcome is that our bedroom is pretty much spotless. Finally. And at a completely manageable state. Now all I have to do is actually manage it. P1 has hit yet another phase of repeating and asking the question “why?” I have lost count of the amount of times I’ve …

Round Like A Circle

I’m feeling angry at myself. The anger gets stronger each day. I hate who I am. Who I’ve become. Where I’m heading. Why do I have no motivation? I have three things I need to do: 1) Express milk. 2) Tidy the room. 3) Exercise. I fail to even do one of those each day! All are as important as …

OCD – It’s A Real Thing!

I think I have Obsessive Compulsive Disorder when it comes to my bed covers. In fact I know I do. I have absolutely no idea what started it, where it comes from, all I know is that if I see mattress, covers aren’t straight or the duvet is making its way out of the cover I get a horrible tightening …

How Does It End Up Like This?

Tuesday’s and Thursday’s used to be my relaxing days. When I was pregnant; they’d be my days to sleep and spud about in my Jammies. Watching countless episodes of CSI. I could probably still do that, P2 is quite flexible and enjoys chatting to me in bed. Our snuggle times. But living with parents means I’ve got to keep on …

Honesty – The Best Policy

Honesty is the best policy… I don’t cope very well in the evenings if I haven’t napped at least once during the day. To top it off I’m having more energy during the day and struggle to fall asleep for the nap I need to carry me through the evenings! Last night was another bad night – not entirely P2s …
