“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 …

“P1 has concussion”

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.

“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 …
