Building Up A Supply

I’ve been quite relaxed about expressing my breast milk. But now P2 is 16 weeks old I know that the weaning stage is right around the corner. My OH and I have agreed to wait until she’s at least 6 months before she starts on baby rice. Even though I weaned P1 at 4months. I read on the back of …

Opposites Attract

It’s been a very long day today. P1 started our day with an argument over food and then over wearing tights.

There was a link where you could contact them to join their team. I was definitely up for that. I’m very proud of what I have …

Chinese Meal

It was my Mums friend, now my friend too… I hope… Engagement party tonight. I felt a bit nervous about going as it was at a Chinese restaurant. I hate Chinese, the food not the people.

Why Is Our World Like This?

It sends shivers down my spine to think about yesterday’s events in Woolwich. A solider was brutally murdered. It’s disgusting. The whole situation is disgusting. It always sickens me when people murder. My thoughts go to the families that get effected by that one person who takes it upon themselves to take someone else’s life! I think we are all …

I really should studies suggest that eight in ten children are more interested in what they are taught at school after an educational holiday, while more than half (59%) of children who go on educational holidays achieve higher grades at school.
