Chinese Meal

It was my Mums friend, now my friend too… I hope… Engagement party tonight. I felt a bit nervous about going as it was at a Chinese restaurant. I hate Chinese, the food not the people. It’s mainly because I’m such a fussy eater. I hate to try new things. Such a child. Well, we went along and had a …

Swans Are Swimming

I woke up today feeling fantastic. Ok I’m still bunged up and can barely hear anything but I’m loads better. I managed to stay at my Grandad’s meal for about 15minutes before I got my OH to take me home. Today, we’ve been to watch P1 have her swimming lesson. Although she’s been in the same group for ages I …

Happy 82nd Birthday!

My Grandad is 82 today! He’ll never read this because he’s a typical old man and doesn’t have the Internet. My Grandad is truly the most amazing man on this earth. Sorry to my OH. He’s always been there for me, through thick and thin. I love you Grandad! And Happy Birthday.

Illness To Rein Again

I think due to the recent lack of sleep I’ve been experiencing my immune system is well and truly down and has let in another stinking cold! I’m bunged up to the extent it actually make me sick. My head feels like it’s going to explode at any minute and my throat feels like I’ve been downing fire sticks!! Ouch! …

Why Is Our World Like This?

It sends shivers down my spine to think about yesterday’s events in Woolwich. A solider was brutally murdered. It’s disgusting. The whole situation is disgusting. It always sickens me when people murder. My thoughts go to the families that get effected by that one person who takes it upon themselves to take someone else’s life! I think we are all …

Pinot Grigio

I’ve decided to start planning our wedding again. I stopped when everything went belly up, it felt like my dreams were crashing down around me and I didn’t want to get excited about anything. Everything went in the bin regarding our wedding day. But there’s absolutely no harm now, after all… One day we’ll have our wedding day! Last night, …

10 Reasons Why You Should Go Camping with Children

Camping is hugely popular in the UK. It’s an idyllic idea – setting off to a woodland or beach, pitching the tent, then immersing yourself in nature, free from the interruptions of everyday life. However, there’s an alternative image of camping, which usually involves lots of rain, frustrated children, and soggy sausages on the barbeque. Sadly, it’s this latter notion …

Running On … Zilch

I don’t think I’ve ever had such a bad nights sleep. It was seriously dreadful. I was disturbed by every member of my little family; My OH, P1 and of course P2! P1 came home from my Grandparents asleep so we put her straight to bed as it was her bedtime anyway. P2 didn’t go to sleep until 11pm. My …

Why You Should Plan An Education Vacation

When I book holidays I have to admit that I don’t think about the educational value of the experiences. I really should studies suggest that eight in ten children are more interested in what they are taught at school after an educational holiday, while more than half (59%) of children who go on educational holidays achieve higher grades at school. Travel, …

Baby Yoga

I hate Mother (Parent) and Baby Groups… As in I feel so uncomfortable about them not that there’s anything actually wrong with the groups. I always feel like people are watching me and judging me because I am a young Mum. I felt slightly out of place at the Breast Feeding group and thought I was definitely more suited to …

Co-Sleeping In The News

My Twitter and Facebook have gone absolutely crazy about co-sleeping. The news has come out with yet another report about it. I feel quite angry about it all – there’s so many different views on co-sleeping and parenting that it’s hard to know what you’re meant to do with your baby. I co-sleep. Not all the time, but more often than not. …

Festival

Considering we didn’t actually get to sleep until about 11:30pm because of arriving home late from Kent. P2 slept from 11:30 until 6:10am this morning. Technically, a full night sleep because I wasn’t woken up by her. I haven’t really talked about my Christian life much. I used to attend church every Sunday, but when I met my OH it …

Sunday Specials

P1 seems to have lost all social skills today. The amount of times she’s been on the naughty step! We’ve had a day at the MiLs. It’s always nice going there because there’s so many toys for P1 to play with that she can’t physically get bored. Plus it’s been quite decent weather so she’s spent a lot of her …
