Here we are, another great day done and dusted. How many of us made or bought pancakes today? Were they disgustingly bad for you and drizzled in maple syrup? Or were you good and put fresh fruit on top? Who cares?! Eat them how you want! I for one love them loaded up with sugar… Continue reading Pancake Day!
Whether you’re a stay-at-home parent, or a full-time working family, I’m here to give you a pat on the back and say “good job!” I’ve always been one for work and earning my wage, but after having William, I realised that actually I wouldn’t forgive myself if I wasn’t involved in his first year of… Continue reading Have you told your other half that you appreciate them?
Whoooooooosh. *blink* Oh look it’s already Monday night. We’ve survived the first day back at school, and we even made it to school on time (winner!) But where the hell did the half term go?! It honestly feels like a typical weekend off school has gone by, not a whole week! Having said that, we have had… Continue reading Where’d the Half Term go?
I hadn’t intended on being a stay-at-home mum (SAHM), it kind of just happened. I’d left university and moved in with Martin, and we discussed what would happen now with regards to work and childcare for Lily.

From the obscene wake up calls, mixed in with the already interrupted sleep, I don’t want to parent today. I don’t want to roll out of my oh-so-warm bed to attend to the daily ongoings of being a parent, which starts with a very loud crying baby. I don’t want to make sandwiches for the lunches today,… Continue reading I don’t want to parent today.
Ahh, Valentines Day. The day of love and romance. The day when people go the extra mile for their loving other and spend £££ on buying flowers, cards, chocolates, dinner reservations and the like. But not me. I am not a fan of Valentines day, and quite luckily, neither is Martin. *Disclaimer: This is just my… Continue reading Valentines?
Do you have children at nursery or school? Do you like to ask them what they’ve been up to? I ask Lily every day after school what she got up to, and getting any kind of information out of her is as about as easy as trying to get blood from a stone. A typical conversation… Continue reading “What did you do at school today?”
Being a mum was never high on my list when I was late teens, I was in limbo as to what I wanted to do – but I knew I didn’t want to be a mum just yet! Until I reconnected with Martin. By this point, Lily was already 3 and a half, and she quite obviously came… Continue reading From ‘Becky’ to ‘Mummy.’
Over in the Twittersphere I’ve seen a few bloggers mentioning the “#RockingMotherhood challenge,” which has stemmed from Patricia over at White Camellias. After reading their posts it’s actually been so lovely to see them look at what they’ve been doing as a mother and praising themselves for it. We do so much for our children, and… Continue reading 10 Reasons I’m #RockingMotherhood
