Losing Motivation & Visiting The Ducks

I’ve been really struggling this winter to find the motivation for adventures. Our year last year was so busy and full of fun exciting things that when the cold hit, I wanted to hibernate through it and chill out. P2 had a full month off nursery and we got into a bit of a lazy routine of pyjama days, movies …

A Snowy Winter Morning

I woke up today to our little village being covered in a dusting of white. We’d had a few flakes yesterday evening and at 2am when P2 woke asking for her usual milk, which was refused, I saw out of the window the glow of the snow in the dark. I was so excited for morning to come but by …

My Sunday Photo 2016 – 3/52

There’s gradually been more and more snowy winter photos appear on social media and I was left feeling rather glum as I watched the rain pour and the sky dark.

Drinking More Water This Winter With Robinsons Drinks

My favourite drink is water. It’s the only thing that really quenches my thirst in the summer. But it’s now winter and I am going to admit that I’m drinking much less. There’s not that heat that makes your mouth dry and gasping for some liquid. But have no fear because Robinsons have come to my rescue and I’m here …

Bedtime – Winter vs Spring

It’s 9:30pm and I’m tucked up in bed. I’m exhausted and have had enough. For nearly four weeks, the clever ones will realise this was the clocks going forward, my evenings have been sucked away into the oblivion. Rewind a week before the clocks and I had finally gained a child free moment of the day to blog, to watch …

Cussons Mum & Me Baby Bath To Comfort Snuffles Review

“Bedtimes are easier in the winter”

It’s well known that I’m the owner of a toddler that has never slept through the night. At 21 months old I can count the amount of 8 hour straight sleeps she’s had on one hand. Being sleep deprived is an understatement. At the beginning of November I wrote about the changes I was making to P2s bedtime. I’m pleased …

Christmas Eve – (To Princess 1 – 5 Years)

To Princess 1, Happy birthday!!! I can’t believe you are five years old. It’s just crazy. You’ve been on earth for half a decade. You arrived to us after 19 hours of premature labour at 10:27am on Christmas Eve. You just couldn’t wait another seven weeks of being inside my tummy. You had a rough start but you’ve never stopped …

“It’s definitely the cold/flu season”

It’s definitely the cold/flu season. P2 has been hit hard this weekend. The poor little mite has a cough, little bit of a temperature, eyes watery and snotty!! Lots and lots of snot, and everyone knows I hate snot. She’s not eating too well and is drinking all the time! I know I’ll soon catch it, the horrid parent circle …

Littlewoods Quilted Jackets

I don’t know if it’s just me, but I’m really feeling the cold lately. It’s freezing! I’m probably noticing it more because I’m out in it a lot more doing the school run. So I’ve been looking at different coats and jackets. I don’t know much about fashion in all honesty. I tend to wear what’s comfortable especially when it comes down to …
