Bounty Mutiny

Mumsnet has started a campaign to end Bounty Sales Reps being able to go into maternity wards. When I first read about it on Twitter I didn’t think there would be many people against Bounty Reps. But there is! Including me. With P1, they came and asked if I’d like a picture of her. They must have been completely blind, …

“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 …

Zombie State Of Living

As P2 grows in herself, her sleep pattern seems to deteriorate. Drastically. I’m feeling the most sleep deprived I have the whole 17 weeks and 6 days of her existence in the real world. I don’t even think she’s solely to blame. She didn’t used to fall asleep for the night until 10:30pm, but now she falls asleep somewhere between …

Up Do

I’ve been looking at wedding hair styles today. Now the dress is sorted, and I’ve decided on who I want to do my make up, I’ve started researching people who can do my hair. I’m very picky when it comes to hair. I’ve only recently found a hairdresser that can cut my hair exactly how I ask, and that was …

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 …

Fancy Dress Party

P1s God-Mother (aka in my blog as GM) celebrated her birthday with all her friends by holding a Film Character themed fancy dress party last night. Getting my costume was very last minute, my OH wore his work suit, P1 her favourite dress up and P2 in her bunny sleep suit… We all had a lovely time. It was actually …

V.I.M – Very Important Mummy’s

I hate being judged. Every single day I get judged. The main reason is because I’m a young parent. I can’t even hide away from being a younger parent because I’m 140cm tall (4ft 7in ish). My local children’s centre run several groups/sessions each day, all week and I’ve been to the Breastfeeding Group twice. On the first time a …

Bliss Buggy Push!

This is a plea… A plea for everyone to dig deep in their pockets (virtual, online pockets) and donate to a charity that is very close to my heart, Bliss. I don’t normally take part in anything to do with charities. I hate the way they rattle their tins in your face when you walk down the high street or …

To My Princess 2 – 4 Months

To my Princess 2, This is your monthly update, it’s a little out of sync because I decided to do this when a month had already started. I really hope you and your sister will read these when you are older, something for you to look back on and see what we were all like back then. Week 14 This …

Wedding Planning – 115 Days To Go

So far wedding planning has gone quite smoothly. I’ve probably just jinxed that. We have got the date we wanted, and managed to book the reception venue we wanted. Ok, it’s not our original plan of having it all done in a beautiful stately home, but it’s still going to be perfect. We’ve ordered our invites, I’ve chosen a dress …

Gym Session Or Relax Session?!

Since our weekend away I’m happier, I think my OH is happier and our lives together is a lot more calmer. On Monday night we enjoyed another baby-free evening together. I always love being on my own with my OH because it reminds me that we are still “normal” people deep down. We still have a relationship that the fire …

God Looks After Nightmares

I’m feeling very guilty this morning. I was moaning about my brothers alarm vibrating on the floor above our bedroom waking us up to my mum through the bathroom door when P1 suddenly starting crying. I rushed into her room. She was clearly very very upset. She’d had a bad dream and the way she described it I’m not surprised …

Proud Mummy Moment – Nearly Rolling

It was only yesterday that I was moaning to the breast feeding support lady about how many babies P2s age were really chatty and some rolling over but P2 wasn’t. Now today, we have a screeching, squealing and very chatty little lady who has spent a good hour flipping her hips over and has even managed to get on to …

Allergic Reaction

Whenever I ask my OH to get me something from the shops I always get really nervous about what he’ll actually bring home with him. I had one of these incidents when I went into hospital to give birth to P2. With the amount of false alarms and hospital visits I’d run out of the little travel sized spray deodorants …

Our Weekend Away to Aldeburgh

We’re back to reality. We spent Friday to Sunday in Aldeburgh, a very beautiful seaside town in Suffolk. We stayed at the Wentworth Hotel which was paid for by my Mum for my OH birthday present from them. The hotel was just stunning. Really old fashioned, very posh and the staff were all welcoming. We didn’t know what to expect …
