24/31: 10 Words To Describe Me

I’m sure my hubby could quite easily come up with ten words that describe me without a blink of an eye. I always struggle to describe myself because I always feel like I’m putting myself down or bigging myself up. The 10 words that describe me would be; 1) Small. 2) Attitude. 3) Creative. 4) Shy. 5) Mother. 6) Writer. …

I’m looking forward to a few things really. I’m looking forward to what our future holds and all the exciting unexpected things. I’m mainly looking forward to the day I can bend down properly, see my lady bits, hold my beautiful newborn in my arms and give my back a break by passing her to Daddy! I’m looking forward to …

“The result was what I’d feared”

We have an outbuilding. It’s a building with electricity and water. It’s quite large. It houses our freezer, our washing machine and the tumble dryer. Lately, it’s also been our dump spot. Everyone has one. Usually it’s a drawer or a cupboard we just throw things into a pretend that it’ll get sorted later or next week, or even next …

A Visit To Buckingham Palace

I relied on my Grandparents for childcare when I was working, they looked after P1 three times a week until my Nan’s health really got bad, but then it was still two times a week. P1 has learnt so much from her Great-Grandparents and she’s been extremely lucky to have spent so much time with them. My Nan’s death didn’t …

22/31: Share An Old Photo Of You

I love looking at photos from the past because they always spark memories. This photo was taken 10 years ago, back when I actually thought I looked the bees knees! As you can see it was taken when I was going through the phase of dying my hair. This was the result after having it black, then bleached in an …

Pregnancy Diaries – 33 Weeks #3

Being 33 weeks pregnant is a sort of milestone for me. At 33+1 I gave birth to P1.

I’m really hoping the remaining weeks …

“The very precious sibling bond”

I never realised just how dependent P2 was on her big sister. A couple of weeks ago P1 went for a sleep over with my Grandad (their Great-Grandad) and originally it was meant to be for one night which turned into two nights. P1 had a fantastic time and actually came back really upset from missing him. But back at …

Rockabilly Kids Toothbrush Review

Both my girls are obsessed with toothbrushes. I’ve never had an issue with trying to get them to clean their teeth and I feel quite lucky about that. Dental hygiene becomes yet another worry parents face right from when they cut their very first tooth and with so many products out there it can become quite a nightmare… That’s just …

19/31: My Favourite Foods

Food glorious food. Anyone that’s known me for a long time will be quite pleasantly surprised when I announce that there’s very few foods I won’t eat. It used to be the opposite, I’ve always been very picky with foods but after meeting my hubby I’ve learnt to love food. Every time I visited my MiL right at the beginning …

18/31: What Do You Collect?

Today’s prompt was a bit difficult. What do you collect? I don’t have a secret stash of stamps somewhere, or buttons or elastic bands for that matter. The one thing I do have quite a few of and am quite passionate about is nail varnish. My collection is quite limited but it’s something I’m always growing and really appreciate receiving …

Here’s our average day: (Despite the frequent wake up calls during the early hours …

A Fear Of Darkness

Our day started slow. After having a night of P2 waking every hour I’d decided to laze in bed for a few hours whilst the girls played and watched a film. I knew I needed to get a doctors appointment for P1 and myself – P1 has had a few lumpy scabs appear on her scalp and I was pretty …
