I went on a mums night out last night. This was my first experience of anything remotely like that. It was arranged by a mum from P1s class and there was 9 of us that turned up at the pub for some drinkies and chat. I left hubby with P1 in bed and P2 downstairs in her jammies all ready …

“dreaming of sun, sea and sand”

I definitely think I need a holiday. A holiday abroad anyway. The last holiday I went on was before I’d even met my hubby! It was back in 2011 and in that year I had two abroad holidays thanks to my work bonus. I took my Mum, P1 and me to Lanzarote in February for a week. It was a …

Letter To My Nan – 3 Months

Hi Nan, Things aren’t getting any easier. I try to talk about you every day with P1 but you know her, she just wants to talk about something else or play. I showed P2 the photo I have of you on the window seal, she stroked your face which left me emotional. I keep having the sudden realisation that she’ll …

“For the first time ever I chose to tidy”

Following my post on how frustrated I was with my lack of motivation, I’d like to share with you something that may shock you. Tonight, I’ve had what seems like forever without P1 and my hubby.

“I’ve never had a member of the family that has Alzheimer’s”

Something in the news has really touched me. A man seeking love after his wife is stricken with Alzheimer’s. I’m trying my hardest to understand his point of view but I’m struggling. I’ll put it bluntly. I think he’s selfish. I’ve never had a member of the family that has Alzheimer’s, so really I can’t comment, but my Grandad stood …

“I’m kicking myself for swapping the rooms around to be honest”

I don’t know how we managed to co sleep for 6 months. I’m a complete lover of co sleeping don’t get me wrong. Back when P2 was more of a potato and breastfeeding, it was easier and it actually meant we got more sleep between us! It’s been terrible the past week. I’ve not slept from fear of P2 choking …

Nan didn’t get a chance to have …

“I’m so glad I made the decision to go green and use cloth”

I’m an ex-disposable nappy Mummy. I used them for nearly 3 years with P1. I used them up until P2 was 3 months old. I now use cloth nappies. I’m absolutely addicted to the variety of styles and colours that I can choose from to match P2s outfits. This week she’s been poorly so I’ve been going through nappies like …
