New Look For LWPP

Welcome to my new, very sexy, very self hosted blog! I’d love to say I had the brains and patience to figure self hosting out by myself… I didn’t. I owe this to my OH. Who has literally spent hours doing it. I’ve still got to go through all my hundreds of photos and change the locations. I’ve done 2 …

You Either Love It Or You Hate It

I ventured into Hobbycraft today to grab some bits to start off the girls Arts & Crafts box. What an expensive shop! P1 walked in and the first thing she said was “Wow this is amazing!” And that’s the exact same reaction that I had when I used to go with my Mum and spend many hours going down every …

Saturday Sleep

Yesterday was a very chilled day. My OH has been feeling pretty yucky for the past few days, probably caught from P1, so just wanted a day of relaxing. P1 spent the whole day upstairs in my brothers room with my Mum and stepdad – they are decorating it for when he gets back today from seeing his Dad. Living …

A Squishy Read

Just a quick review because I’m watching the Grand National. We’ve been given so many things for P2. We’ve been ultra lucky from our friends and family. We have bags and boxes full of toys ready for when P2 needs them. Yesterday, P1 found a soft book that she wanted me to read to her. So I got both girls …

I’m So Proud

Ok just a “I’m so proud of my daughter” moment… This little lady is amazing. Both my girls are amazing but it’s currently 4am and this particular daughter has just woken up for her first night feed. After her usual 9-10pm crying non-stop episode that’s she’s made part of her routine since having her jabs… She finally had her feed …

DP – The Transporter

Tell us about a sensation — a taste, a smell, a piece of music — that transports you back to childhood. As a child I spent many holidays with my Grandparents at a farm. My Grandad had a very close friend who owned a farm in Somerset and we used to go over to help him manage the farm. I …

To My Princesses – Letter 2

To my Princesses, This week we’ve done a lot. It’s been Daddy’s birthday so we spent a day at Bedgebury forest to watch Daddy do Go Ape – the weather was freezing but we had a great time. Today we went to Tropical Wings Zoo which again the weather was freezing but we had a great time with Nanny. Nanny …

Insanity Forecasted For Easter Half Term

This morning my OH participated in the Ace Cafe Southend Shakedown. I’ve never seen him so motivated to be up early. He does love his motorbike. P1 loves to watch him and spent ages watching out of the window. P2 and I joined her but P1 soon got bored and left us watching. We eventually saw him an hour later! …

DP – Odd Couple

Does a messy home (or office) make you anxious and cranky, or is cleaning something you just do before company comes over? I was honestly expecting an Easter-ey Daily Prompt today… But nope. I am the biggest mess maker ever. I do it and think to myself “I’ll tidy that later” but later never comes! I hate that quality about …

Messy Time

I read a post over at Richmond Mummy and it really made me chuckle. Yesterday, whilst she was clearing up probably a lot of mess because let’s face it… Kids of all ages have to make mess when faced with art supplies – I was at our local ceramic painting studio run by family not worrying about the mess P1 …

40 Acts – Day 38 – Practise Your Testimony

When practising your testimony, have different length versions for different situations. Consider one a trailer for the full movie with perhaps an extended version for that long conversation over a meal. Write it down. Don’t read or memorise a script, but writing can help to focus your thoughts and enable you to spot the important parts. Remember that listening is …

To My Princesses – Letter 1

(I’ve decided to do a dedicated post each Wednesday for my two Princesses. They were both born on a Wednesday so it seems appropriate for the post to be done on a Wednesday and I’d love for them to be able to read about their lives when they grow up.) To my Princesses, I started this blog as an online …

DP – Judgement Day

If you were to judge your favorite book by its cover, would you still read it?   My absolute favourite writer of all time is Sophie Kinsella. If I could I would own all her books and reread them over and over and over again. I definitely think that the book covers do the book justice. They are colourful and …

DP – Déjà Vu

Have you ever truly felt déjà vu, the sensation that you’ve already had the experience you’re currently having? On several occasions I’ve felt a weird sense of déjà vu. P1 has been the culprit of many. Most recently she was standing at the end of bed. She turned sideways and a weird feeling fell on my body. I’d been in …

That’s Definitely Not A Boobie

There’s absolutely no way I’m anywhere near ready to give up breastfeeding. I’m completely in love with doing it. It feels so natural and the bond I have with P2 because of it is amazing. However, it’s been playing on my mind that P2 hates the dummy. Therefore I’m scared she’ll hate a bottle and desperately want her to try …
