“Since starting our new routine bedtimes have been a breeze!”

Since starting our new routine bedtimes have been a breeze! We haven’t followed the routine strictly but we start bedtime at about 6:30pm. By this time P2 is very tired as she’s still used to being sleepy nearly straight after dinner. I don’t bath every day, we bath every few days now but I give P2 her milk in my …

“Today topped it off when the school received their Ofsted report”

We’ve put the icing on top of a cake that’s slowly been created. Sorry, this post isn’t about yummy treats, it’s about P1s education.

Following P1s concussion on Tuesday; we kept her off of school Wednesday. Really she was absolutely fine but with her being sick and my fear of something drastic going wrong I just wanted her under my watchful eye. The school phoned us.

It’s been a rather traumatic day today. A day where my life flashed before me. Terror. Worry. Upset. Guilt. I arrived at the school just like normal to pick P1 up. P1 had her head laying on her book bag facing away from me, she’s done this before, another Mummy joked that she was asleep. I tapped her and said …

“Our little lady took her first ever unaided step”

The fact the P2 is growing up in a super rapid motion has really slapped us in the face the past few days. On Saturday our little lady took her first ever unaided step. Completely out of the blue. 6 months earlier than her big sister. Then tonight, over and over again she’s let go of something and taken not …

“When will Great-Nanny come back from heaven?”

I’ve had a touch of writers block today. Behind the scenes there’s a lot going on and a lot I need to post but my inspiration for words hasn’t been there… Until dinner time came and a certain little madam decided to spark a conversation like no other. Since the death of my Nan I’ve lost a lot of faith …

To My Princess 2 – 11 Months

To Princess 2, I cannot believe that you are 11 months old today. The time is just flying by so fast now. This past month you’ve really started to show a pretty cheeky personality.

Letter To My Nan – 4 Months

Hi Nan, I’m really struggling this month accepting that I’ll never see you again or be able to feel your warm arms around me as our glasses clash when we hug. I miss you! Grandad wasn’t very imaginative with the Christmas presents this year, he definitely needs you to guide him on that one. I did all our Christmas shopping …
