“School seems to be ruining everything I worked hard to create”

I spoke to the teacher this morning about P1s hair incident. I wish I hadn’t now to be honest. Ok, the teacher was extremely apologetic and I felt reassured that she was going to speak with P1 and the girl involved.

We’ve done the room transition and swap around. I say we… It was actually my hubby and SFiL. I just had the task of tidying up afterwards. We had to cram all of P1s toys into the bathroom so we could move it all over. I haven’t got any before photos. My hubby, P2 and I was in the big …

Sleepynico Serene Garden Baby Carrier Review

For months I have struggled to babywear. My first carrier contained far too much fabric for my petite frame. The second sling was much better, something I could get on with but felt the constant need to support P2 with my hand. Then came the Serene Garden Sleepynico carrier. First of all, isn’t it just beautiful? The fabric is amazing …

I had my Grandad round yesterday. It was the first time he’s seen the new house so I made sure everything looked tidy.
