“The frustrating and daunting decision has come to say goodbye”

In January 2012 my little white 1995 Vauxhall Corsa with pink butterfly and flower stickers decided it wanted to keep breaking down on me. The last straw happened when it broke down in the middle of those yellow boxes and I was completely stuck with no help and many cars beeping and passing by. Luckily, it was opposite my work …

“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 …

I’m so relieved that 2013 is nearly over. The start of it wasn’t too bad; we welcomed P2 into our lives, had a pretty awesome weekend away with hubby’s family, went away for the weekend as our own little family, a week camping with my family, on the 3rd September we saw our biggest girl start big school. This was …

“I definitely think the girls are about to travel like royalty”

The moment you see that positive pregnancy test your whole life changes. You spend every second of every day fighting to keep your little one safe. The impending fact that P2 will be needing a new car seat has been playing on my mind for a while. She’s becoming more and more squished inside the baby Maxi-Cosi CabrioFix and her …

Christmas Day 2013

This is the first year in my whole entire life that I haven’t been with my Mum, Nan and Grandad on Christmas! After the mad unwrapping session with the girls this morning I think it really hit me. So much has changed this past year, the biggest and worst change of all was the loss of my Nan.   She …

As you all know, because I bang on about it all the time, I’m a mother of a premature baby. My first born. My little ray of sunshine who fought through her first few weeks …

“Mummy Monster erupted”

It’s been one heck of a day especially this evening. Christmas is fast approaching and with that comes all the emotions of my Nan not being here. This Saturday I’m spending the day with my family in Essex. Having a sort of fake Christmas as we’ll be in Kent on the 25th. I’m scared of what it’s going to feel …

Blog Awards UK 2014

I love my blog. It’s given me a new focus in life. Something to rant on, to laugh on, to cry on and to jot down every inch of my life for memories to look at when I’m old and wrinkly. I’ve had so many amazing experiences thanks to the blogging world. Like reviewing and attending the Baby Show. But …

“This weekend has got off to a really, really rocky start”

This weekend has got off to a really, really rocky start and the stupid thing is, the morning I’ve had is probably perfectly normal and average to most families with young children. P2 woke me up at 5:51am. This woke P1 up too but I fed P2 her bottle and explained to P1 that it was too early to wake …

“I spent four hours last night wrapping Christmas presents”

Yesterday, I finally found a baby group here in Sevenoaks that was just perfect for P2. It catered for crawlers and little ones taking their first wobbly steps. It’s full of singing and fun! It’s also a very small group, perfect for hopefully making some new friends. But guess my luck, it was the last session before they close until …
