“I want to be back at CenterParcs”

We’ve had a little holiday to CenterParcs Longleat and it was certainly needed. I managed to pack clothes for all four of us into one large suitcase plus a little suitcase for random bits and toiletries. P1 packed a rucksack of toys by herself and then helped me pack P2s hamper with her toys.P2 found the whole packing process very …

“Playing amongst the spring daffodils”

Tantrums are a common situation that we deal with in our household. Whether it’s a 5 year old argument with back chatting and stomping or a 13 month old screaming with her head on the floor between her legs. A day without tantrums would be a day where you check to see if the girls are poorly. We seemed to …

“I took a little break from blogging”

I took a little break from blogging this week, apart from the letter to my Nan and to P2. I hope you didn’t miss me too much but life has got a little busy and a little out of control. But I’m back!! Hello there. We’ve had a pretty boring Saturday. It sometimes makes me feel quite guilty for P1. …

To My Princess 2 – 1 Year 1 Month

To my Princess 2, This month has been a big one for you. You’re walking now and you can even manage to stand up from a sitting or crawling position. You are very confident inside but not so confident outside although it won’t be long. We’ve seen a real change in your personality. If there’s something you don’t like then …

Letter To My Nan – 6 Months

To Nan, I can’t and don’t want to believe that it’s been 6 months without you. Half a flipping year and I can tell you now that the pain just seems to get worse each day. There’s so much I want to talk to you about. So much guidance that I need, the type of advice that only you could …

“Between the age of 12 and 13 months another set of vaccinations are due”

Between the age of 12 and 13 months another set of vaccinations are due. P2 turns 13 months next week, therefore she had her vaccination appointment yesterday. P2 was happy and cheeky in the waiting room. Toddling around pulling magazines off the table and making the oldies laugh and smile. Little did P2 know that she was about to be …

To my Princess 1 – 5 Years 2 Months

To my Princess 1, You’ve done remarkably well with the change of school. Ok, your behaviour has gone downhill again but the school have said you are settling in well and that’s all that matters. In fact over half term you kept asking when you were going back to school! You’re a very arty person and this month your drawings …

“I’m so nervous about P1 having the growth hormone test”

Last year, P1 had some blood tests and an X-ray to check her growth. We’ve been a little concerned and so was the paediatrician but considering I’m rather small (4ft 8in) we weren’t too worried about the results. Last Friday, we finally had the results back – she’s normal. Well, there’s nothing wrong with her bones anyway. The next step …

“The house looks like Primark at Christmas!”

It’s been a week since the sickness bug started and about 5 days since it officially ended for me but I’m still not feeling 100% normal. It’s the school half term and we’ve done nothing remotely exciting which I feel totally guilty about. My blog has taken a bit of a side seat during our recovery process and the house …

“Her behaviour is beyond anything we’ve ever had to deal with”

I’m struggling to remember the last time that I went a whole day or even half a day without having to tell P1 off for something or argue with her. Life seems to be a constant battle – parents against child. Her behaviour is beyond anything we’ve ever had to deal with before. She’s become really rude and I’m really …

Happy 1st Birthday Princess 2

I blinked and a whole year whizzed past. Yup, P2 is a whole year, 12 months, 365 days, 52 weeks old. I know it’s crazy!! I apologise in advance. It’s a long one and a cuppa tea and biscuit may be needed… If you’re not too squeamish that it. I realised that last year I failed to write my labour …

Letter To My Nan – 5 Months

Hubby and I have opened our own business! It’s a cloth nappy company and we’ve incorporated the girls names in the company name; Freeva. We have …

“I’m walking 6.4miles a day”

P1 started her new school today. I had the alarm set for 6:30 but didn’t manage to actually get out of bed until 7. It took about half an hour to walk 1.6miles – exactly what good old Google said.I left P2 at home with hubby and P1 was allowed to use the pushchair. I know that so many people …
