May Bank Holiday Fun In The Sun

We’ve had a lovely bank holiday Monday with my MiL! I even experienced my first half pint of alcohol (cider to be precise) since… Well about a year. I decided, half wouldn’t hurt especially as I’d just fed pher!! It’s not like I’m some sort of breastfeeding alcoholic. Although there is a part of me that is scared I’ll harm …

I Didn’t Invite You Aunt Flow?!

Aunt Flow decided to pay a visit. I’m not overly impressed at her unwelcome visits. This is the second visit I’ve had since P2s birth (not counting the 6 weeks I bled continuously). Don’t get me wrong a visit from AF means that I’m not pregnant and have working ovaries and womb – fantastic. However, I’m breastfeeding, exclusively so why …

Walkers Hoops & Crosses Review

I unexpectedly received a parcel in the post yesterday morning. Inside contained a monkey holding a packet of crisps. I’ve been chosen, along with many other parent bloggers, to review Walkers Hoops and Crosses crisps. Both the girls absolutely love the monkey. Not surprising really, it’s beautiful. As for the crisps; well we were sent the Roast Beef flavour. Which …

Boobie Milk

A few days ago I was convinced I had a problem with my milk supply. I was terrified! My boobs felt really empty, I wasn’t getting that “filling” feeling, and P2 was feeding more often and not really sleeping. Even more to my worry is that I’ve only been expressing about 2oz and that’s a total amount. Turns out, I …

To My Princesses – Letter 6

To my Princesses, I’m sorry I’m a little late in writing this. Wednesday, when you both celebrated your weekly milestones, we were very busy and by the time I got to bed it was just too late. This week has been great, we’ve had busy days and quiet days. P1 you have been in a normal routine with nursery and …

Good Morning. Just Some Sex Ed Here

Pornography!! Caught your attention for a Friday morning?! At school, being a girl who preferred the company of boys over girls, meant that porn was the topic of conversation for most lunch times. It disgusted me, the way they put these women on a pedestal and expected us “normal” girls to be exactly like that. Most of the boys probably …

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 …

What A State

It’s been a busy day. And a hot day! I must have looked a right idiot walking through town – I was wearing a black vest top, pink jeans and my black knitted winter boots!!! My pumps have basically fallen apart and my toenails are currently fashioned by P1s artistic nail painting, not sandal/flip flop friendly. P2 and me had …

DP – Personal Space

To what extent is your blog a place for your own self-expression and creativity vs. a site designed to attract readers? How do you balance that? If sticking to certain topics and types of posts meant your readership would triple, would you do it? I set up my blog to be literally be somewhere to express my feelings. But I …

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 …
