Essex Floods Family Rescued From Sinking Vehicle 24 / 25th August 2013

We woke up today and everything is sunny. As if yesterday’s floods never happened. We were lucky really, although our drains blocked and we could only use our upstairs toilet, some people weren’t so lucky. I’ve heard stories about people’s downstairs being completely ruined. The aftermath is crazy. All we can hear is sirens, emergency services going to help everyone …

“it’s not like I’d go and ask for a boob job or anything”

I think the last time I spoke about my breastfeeding journey was with this post and I just wanted to update everyone that may be interested. For nearly about three weeks I’ve been feeding boobie to P2 after her dinner all the way until her breakfast. She’s been having formula during the day. It’s been going quite well really, she’ll …

So it’s a day of typical English weather. Well I say typical… I don’t think I’ve ever seen rain as bad as this!! We’re flooding! Where I live we very rarely get floods because we are on high ground. So this weather is really weird and everyone is so unprepared. The drains are flooded, the roads are flooded, businesses flooded, …

To My Princess 1 – 4 Years 8 Months

To my Princess 1, I seriously cannot believe that you’ll be starting school in less than two weeks. It seems like such a long time ago that you were a tiny baby like your sister and so dependent on me. You’ve grown up ridiculously this past month. Finally able to put your own clothes on and the majority of the …

Walkers Crisps Mighty Lights Review

It’s very rare for us to buy branded food at the moment with saving for a mortgage, wedding shopping and having two young children to feed. So it was fantastic when I was asked to taste test some more Walkers products. 18 packets of crisps arrived for us to munch. Another new product from the brains of Walkers, Mighty Lights. …

“this is not any form of yoga. This is simply child abuse”

Sorry for the late night post but something’s ticked me off just a tad. During our nightly routine after we put P2 in her cot and snuggle down, my OH usually watches YouTube and I scroll through Facebook, Twitter and other blog posts. Only today I’m unusually reading a magazine when my OH nudges me to watch something. Here it …

“I’m not ready to not see her for 9hours a day”

It dawned on me today that I should have been returning to work in two weeks time. It got me thinking, how I would have coped if I was about to embark on work life with two children, being waist deep in wedding planning, sorting P1s school equipment out and having my Nan back in the hospital. It would have …

“doctors have diagnosed yet another heart attack”

I’m on my way back from visiting my Nan. Yup, she’s in hospital again. I’m sad to say that it isn’t a shock to us. I’ve watched her go very downhill recently especially since our holiday. We came back to reports from my Grandad of Nan needing a lot of help with every day life, walking, dressing and going to …

Fisher-Price Sparkling Symphony Cot Mobile Review

Once again we have been extremely lucky to be given the chance to review a Fisher-Price product. This time we have been playing with their Sparkling Symphony Mobile. The mobile fits securely to our cot with plastic/rubbery straps. It also has a string that can be tied around the cot bar for added peace of mind. There are quite a …

“pretty much shoved her in the car”

Following on from a pretty tough night, P2 had a pretty amazing Sunday. I felt a need to have a break from her and pretty much shoved her in the car with my Mum & SD when they went to Camber to collect my brother. I felt majorly guilty but my OH was off to the gym so that would …

“She was hysterical!”

We had the absolute day from hell with P1 yesterday. Anything we said to her just wasn’t good enough. She repeated over and over. Did things we told her not to do. And then when it came to bedtime… Oh didn’t she perform! Firstly, she took ages to persuade to go to the toilet. I had to repeat myself over …
