“Her eye looked freaky, swollen and just not right”

I’ve never had to panic with anything that relates to P2. With P1 it was a totally different story. Literally about 5/10 minutes ago I panicked. Whilst drinking her bottle of milk, rubbing her eyes because she was sleepy the scariest thing happened. P2 managed to rub/poke her eyelashes inside her eyelid, so instead of inside out it was outside …

“Crying is a way of expressing emotions”

Butter wouldn’t melt… So P2s routine is going great today. Slightly off the times by like half hour or so… But other than that… Good! P1 is another situation altogether. There was me thinking P2 was the biggest of our worries but I actually think it’s P1 that needs some sort of structure. My usually very relaxed, happy and bright …

“Today we are living to a routine”

Today we are living to a routine, well P2 will be! I know, you’re all rolling your eyes. But I mean it, I’ve got to do something to sort our sleeping issues out. Maybe P2 isn’t as easy going as her sister was and able to just go as the flow. P2 has started putting herself in a routine anyway, …

Letter to My Nan – 1 Month

Hi Nan, It’s been over a month since you’ve been gone and so much has changed. I don’t know who to talk to anymore because nobody listened and answered in the way you did. I need you now more than ever to tell me everything’s going to be ok. I hope I did you proud at your funeral. I knew …

“my hubby has suggested he sleep on the sofa”

Right back when P2 was under 4months old is where the root of our problem lies. Right back when I jinxed our life! I praised and boasted about how well she slept, only waking once and on a bad night twice. Yup, that’s where the problem began! Last night was so awful that my hubby has suggested he sleep on …

In this day and age, finding and keeping a paid job is difficult. There’s many unemployed, benefit claiming people in the world. So why have I just handed in my resignation to a job I’ve been so lucky to obtain and keep for the past four years?? Yup! I’m unemployed. Officially. Today, my boss accepted my resignation.

“History is certainly repeating itself!”

P1 came home from school today with a tale that brought back many memories of my own school days. She told me that a boy from year 2 was picking her up in the playground and she didn’t like it.   History is certainly repeating itself! P1 is a tiny dot just like her Mummy and therefore I knew I …

“I don’t really know what careers there are in writing”

I want to learn something. I don’t know what. I’m interested in becoming a nail technician so that I can do it in my spare time. I’m also very interested in law, but gave up on the open university course that I started last year whilst pregnant. I’m the type of person that craves things but never finishes things. I …

“Half way through the film hubby came up with pizza”

Today was a good day… Apart from the morning and bedtime. But hey ho! We went back to Essex to visit Hubby’s family. It was a mad rush in the morning to get everything ready and rather stressful which didn’t help when P1 was really trying us both! But when we got there we really enjoyed ourselves. All four of …
