Money Can’t Buy Love

I was devastated when my fingers puffed up so that I couldn’t wear my engagement ring or my 18th birthday ring for my Grandparents during my pregnancy. Last Tuesday, I was sat in the doctors having our 6 week check up. Twiddling with my birthday ring when I suddenly realised my engagement wasn’t on my other hand! I panicked 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 …

You Will Obey

Last night P1 ended up in bed early. This usually happens once a month and it’s enough to get her behaviour back on track. Last night my OH and I were completely at the end of our tether with her.

Insanity Forecasted For Easter Half Term

This morning my OH participated in the Ace Cafe Southend Shakedown. I’ve never seen him so motivated to be up early. He does love his motorbike. P1 loves to watch him and spent ages watching out of the window. P2 and I joined her but P1 soon got bored and left us watching. We eventually saw him an hour later! …

DP – The Social Network

Do you feel like you “get” social media, or do you just use it because that’s where all your friends and family are? I definitely think I “get” social media. I started with Bebo gosh I even think this is still going. I only did that because all my friends were and then they all moved to Myspace, so off I followed …

In My Bra

I’ve reviewed Lansinoh previously because I love their boobie products. I’ve been using their Breast pads for the past month. I’d been given a box and then they were on offer so I bought another box. They come in a box of 60. All individually wrapped (one packet is one pad). They are disposable. They have two adhesive strips. Stay …
