Hello all, sorry it’s been a bit quiet over here! I had planned to get back on track this year and get into the swing of writing on here but it hasn’t happened. Between hospital visits, a little monster permanently attached to my boobs and said monster not sleeping at night, I haven’t really had… Continue reading A Snow Day.
Have you ever started something and wondered how on earth you were gonna stop doing it? This was my predicament I had with William and his bedtime bottle. Around 4 months old when I stopped breastfeeding, I really started cracking down on his bedtime routine, which included putting him in a sleeping bag and giving… Continue reading Giving up the bottle.
I’m not the most confident swimmer, I can do it (not properly, I don’t like putting my face underwater) but I can float and get by which is good enough for me. My kids on the other hand LOVE the water. I enrolled Lily into swimming lessons last year and she’s come on leaps and… Continue reading Rubeons First Swim
No, not that C-word. Calm your pants, I’m on about the other C-word. Christmas. Now really. We’ve only just hit October, so yes…I can appreciate people want to get organised and start their shopping (which, in all honesty is probably a good idea) but shops have had decorations and advent calendars out since September! As soon as the slightest whisper of… Continue reading Who keeps muttering the C-Word?!
I worked out that I spent 10 hours out of the house yesterday. For me, that’s a long time. (even if I weren’t pregnant!) Typically, I’ll do the school run and come home, potter about the house and then head back out for the school pick up and head back home again. For once though,… Continue reading I Had a Good Day.
Last week I saw my timelines over social media boom with “back to school” photos and rejoices/tears from the parents (depending on how well behaved your kids were over the summer…I think the majority I saw were rejoicing!) and now we’re all finding our feet again with the morning/bedtime routines, keeping on top of the laundry and… Continue reading Back to School: First Week in Year 2.
*Apologies for this going up so late, I thought I’d scheduled it to go up…I apparently didn’t do that…haha whoops!* The last week has come…and gone…If you’d have asked me at the end of term if I was looking forward to the holidays I’dve told you no, probably. I was stricken with mum guilt before… Continue reading Summer Holidays Roundup: Week 6
Well, here we are. We survived, we conquered and live to tell the tales, (and many are now on first name basis with their off licence sellers…) What’s even better is the kids survived too and are ready to start back at school – or start a new journey completely! I’m actually really surprised how… Continue reading Back To School Checklist.
I’ve been looking forward to this week all summer as Martin had booked it off as holiday! I tried to balance it between giving him some “me time” and doing things as a family. Monday Today we went to a place called Wroxham Barns – you can read all about our trip here! Tuesday… Continue reading Summer Holidays Roundup: Week 5
As Promised, (a little late – my bad) week 4 of the summer holidays! Monday Today we went round nannys for the day. It was a lovely day and we spent the whole day there! My nephew Thomas was also round for the day, so we all spent the day playing outside. Nanny popped the… Continue reading Summer Holidays Roundup: Week 4
