Appeal Unsuccessful

Guess what? P1 doesn’t have a school. Yup. Our appeal was unsuccessful and I found this out the day before we went on holiday! We are half way through the school holidays. This is meant to be a time where my OH and I were going to part with lots of cash buying uniforms and stationary for our daughter. She …

Is This The End Of My Breastfeeding Journey?!

I’m quite upset that I’m writing this post in a way. I think we are about ready to end our breastfeeding journey. Well not completely anyway. It’s been about a month of weaning now, P2 is now on three meals a day which is usually half a jar. We’ve had no problems except the one toilet trouble during the first …

Holiday Snaps

So we are home, unpacked and back to reality. Both girls and me are having major holiday withdrawals. P1 is struggling to find anything that amuses her, and P2 is rather down in the dumps. Here’s some of our holiday highlights: Our accommodation All that fresh air has wore them both out Trip to Longleat Safari Rainy stormy weather Cheddar …

New Wine – Day 7 The Last Day

Day 7 – 02/08/13 Last night my OH and I enjoyed a little alcohol… Or in my OHs case half a bottle of whiskey to himself. It was really great to see him fully enjoying himself and being relaxed. I know he’s found this week tough, being the minority in a camp full of Christians. We woke up relatively late …

New Wine – Day 6

Day 6 – 01/08/13 Last nights worship was really odd. I believe in God… I do. But I found it really uncomfortable being around a lot of people that were screaming, shaking and shouting. I found it scary. But the actual worship and talk was amazing! P1 fell over on her way back from the loo and cut her knee …

New Wine – Day 5

Day 5 – 31/07/13 Last night we learnt that P2 is a sensitive sausage. We went into the main Arena right at the end of worship ready to wait for the Blind Date Show evening entertainment. P2 loved the lights and music, she even had her arm held out reaching for the lights, but when the show began she wasn’t …

New Wine – Day 4

Day 4 – 30/07/13 Today has been a really lazy day. We woke up quite late, got up leisurely and plodded about the camp. Today was also wash day for my cloth nappies. I was in two minds whether to just give in and take disposables with me, that was what other cloth users had advised me to do, but …

New Wine – Day 3

Day 3 – 29/07/13 I don’t think I’ve ever heard a child cry so much! There’s a child, of unknown age as I haven’t seen it, that seems to constantly cry! The first night people in our camp were complaining, then yesterday evening I could hear what they meant. The poor child cried for literally a whole hour, maybe more, …

New Wine – Day 2

Day 2 – 28/07/13 My OH and I fell asleep really early, and although it was obviously interrupted for me by P2 nuzzling for boobie, we had a pretty decent first night. We enjoyed a lovely cooked breakfast courtesy of my Mum and spent the morning relaxing in the outdoors with a mixture of sun and wind. P1 went to …

New Wine – Day 1

So during this week I’ve come to realise I’m going to have even less Internet signal than I thought… The joys of being in a field I guess. So I’m going to date my posts and hopefully post as soon as I get signal. Day 1 – 27/07/13 We arrived at New Wine all safe and sound. The journey was …

Holiday Mode

Today has been such a busy day! We’ve been busy preparing to go to New Wine. The majority of our evening has been spent packing, but this afternoon we managed to visit family. The girls also had their ears pierced today – I’m prepared for all the negative comments regarding this. P1 had her ears pierced when she was about …

Baby Toilets

We are about 3 weeks in on our food weaning journey. I originally wanted to do baby led with the odd bit of purée. But things haven’t quite gone that way. Well, I suppose that it has been baby led in a way. P2 doesn’t seem to be able to pick food up and get it into her mouth. I …

To My Princess 1 – 4 Years 7 Months

To my Princess 1, I feel like I don’t write enough about you and take enough photos anymore. I feel like your little sister is getting a lot of attention from me and you are being forced to seek all attention from Daddy or your Grandparents. It upsets me, we share bedtimes still but our cuddles are very sparse and …

Groggy Summers Day

I really hate storms. Call me childish, but they are scary. I don’t know why or where my feeling of nervousness comes from. The moment I heard the very loud, very angry grumble of thunder I immediately snuggled up to my OH. He slept through the first few hours of the storm! We seem to have finally cracked P2s awful …

Fluke?

Another very odd night in the sleeping department of P2. I fed her at 9:30pm, put her in her cot about 10:30pm. She then woke up at about 2:30am, but I literally got myself out of bed and put her dummy in her mouth. She fell straight back to sleep until 4:30am. Although she’s rather content and happy, she’s currently …
