“Honestly, I am a responsible adult 99.9% of the time!”

It was my hen night last night. This post will probably taint everyone’s opinions of me a little. Honestly, I am a responsible adult 99.9% of the time! It had been suddenly arranged due to a conversation I’d had during my hair trial with my new two friends A1 & A2. A1 is my OHs best friends girlfriend and A2 …

“She could of cut her foot open”

It’s 9am and this photo pretty much sums up my day so far! I broke a plate whilst washing up. Then P1 broke a glass that she accidentally knocked over. I told her to stay exactly where she was, so of course she jumped up onto the sofa! It’s simple things like that which push me to the limit. I’ve …

Dyson DC34 Multi Floor Cordless Vacuum Cleaner Review

We’ve recently tried a Dyson DC34. This came at just the right time as my cream carpets began to turn a dirty colour with everyone moving stuff in and out of our new home. I suddenly realised that I didn’t have a hoover of any sort to fix this situation. My first impression of the cordless hand hoover was that …

“The motivation for it just isn’t there at the moment”

I’m really struggling this week to get out of bed. The motivation for it just isn’t there at the moment. Last week was absolutely fine. My routine was this; 6:45am wake up, have shower, put dressing gown on, give P1 her breakfast at 7:15am, do washing up, tidying up, get P1 into her school uniform, let her watch some telly, …

“iOS7 was released in the UK”

I have phone data back. YESSSS! I’ve really missed reading other blogs at bedtime and checking Facebook whenever I feel like it. Tweeting about random things. But not only did my data reset last night, iOS7 was released in the UK! Now I’m not going to pretend I know all the technical stuff about it because even though my OH …

John Lewis Anti-Allergy Duvet Review

Just before our move I was offered the chance of reviewing a duvet. I have a thing about my covers so I jumped at the opportunity. The 10.5 tog Double duvet arrived but I saved it for when we were in our new home so that everything could be fresh. From my past experience of duvets; the higher the tog, …

“I can’t remember half the things I’ve wanted to post about”

I’ve drained my data allowance on my phone, and our home has no Internet set up just yet. I’m getting withdrawals of blogging and to be honest, I can’t remember half the things I’ve wanted to post about. So I thought I’d just give you a quick update in photos! I’ll be back very soon! Find me on Facebook & …

“Today was really weird”

Today was really weird. I returned to Essex for P1s swimming lesson and we spent some time with my Grandad. I haven’t seen him since we moved out. I stupidly dressed myself and the girls in summery outfits and forgot coats. Typically for England it rained a lot. This wasn’t the weird part, the odd part about this was that my …

Everyone dreams of that magazine-worthy house where everything is where it’s supposed to be, and there are fine lines between furniture. If you have kids though, this remains a dream because they come and pull down all your cushions, paint your walls and break ceramics.

“I guess change really does effect children in many ways”

I’m experiencing some parenting troubles since the move. I guess change really does effect children in many ways. To start, P1 has really changed in her attitude and behaviour, not really for the better especially at bedtime. She’s doing the things she knows she isn’t allowed like turning the main light on. Although I’ve had excellent reports from her class …
