“My hair is falling out”

I didn’t necessarily decide to have long hair. It just grew and I’m awful for attending hairdressers. I’ve been once a year sometimes less since having children. But I didn’t think I’d ever be sitting in the position I currently am. My hair is falling out. I expected hair loss after pregnancy. It happened with P2 leaving me with an …

Persil Cook With The Kids

P1 wants to be a chef. She loves cooking, baking and everything in between. I hate cooking with children. Baking I can just about manage but cooking a meal is normally a no go situation. I hate the mess it creates when children are involved and it’s made even worse when they never listen to instructions. But I braved it when …

Letter To My Princess 3 – 10 Months

To my Princess 3, You are no longer a tiny baby watching the world go by. You’re firmly in that world, exploring and getting involved in absolutely everything. You are gaining a beautiful personality. It’s so different yet so alike to your big sisters. There’s a cheeky streak about you and I can see you’re going to cause chaos. But …

Raisin & Fudge Cupcakes With Flora

I am not a natural in the kitchen. When it comes to cooking up a delicious meal for our family, it will nearly always go completely wrong. Something I have found that I’m quite good at is baking. Since becoming a stay at home mum I have done a lot of baking but I do prefer to do it alone …

Getting Your Feet Ready For Summer & A Competition

Although it seems like the warm weather is a distant memory now, it’s always nice to treat your feet to some TLC and I was recently sent some lovely foot care goodies from Scholl and from justmylook to kick start the summery feeling. I actually frequently spend many evenings removing dead skin from Hubby’s feet for him manually with a …

My Sunday Photo – 26/07/2015

I went through Primary School with a very small group of close friends. Twins and another girl. Although I was friendly with everyone there was the usual divide of the popular kids, the normal kids and the ones that had no friends at all. I was probably, I hope, in the middle neither popular or unpopular. When it came to …

British Red Cross Has First Aid #RappedUp

As a parent there are so many roles that you have to play. Peace maker, chef, maid, friend, teacher plus so so many more but the absolutely most important one is that you have to play nurse. I have played that role plenty of times with my three daughters. P1 is accident prone, she was born early and her problems …

#PampersPooface – Cotton Wool VS Pampers Sensitive Wipes

As a parent we can pretty much guarantee when our children are about to or doing a poo just by looking at their facial expression. Pampers have recently released a hilarious video that celebrates that pooface and it is so super cute! It’s funny because I really do remember P1 and P2 having a pooface, they still do now, but …

A Thank You Teacher Gift & Goodbye To Year 1

I’ve never been one buys teachers gifts. I didn’t even get the nursery that P1 went to for three years a gift to say thank you. That’s how awful I am. I always mean to but then forget. This year, I opted out of the class collection as we wanted to get something for P1s teacher ourselves. I felt a …

I have been desperate to get P2 into a nursery or preschool. She’s been on four different lists. It feels like such a long time since we put P2s name on the first nursery and preschool waiting list. This week we have finally been offered a nursery place for our beautiful 2 year old. Finally we have a preschool placement! …

“We’ve slipped back into a horrible routine”

I had hoped to be writing a post about how well P2 was doing with giving up milk. We decided about two weeks ago that we needed to cut it out completely to start with. Like an addiction. It’s how we helped her to lose her dummies that she was so addicted to last year and that “cold turkey” approached …
