How Did My House Get So Messy?

Tonight, my mind is in overdrive. There is so much going on . But for now here is my Tuesday night ramblings. I looked around my living room today – and it looked like a toy store had thrown up everywhere. Violently. My House had got so messy. There was stuff EVERYWHERE. And food. Little bits of it. When I became a mother, I started off as the crumb-Nazi – meals were to be eaten at the table, no ifs, no buts. BUT, then J came long and became a finger food enthusiast and both kids eating snacks,  and in the end, you know what? I just let it go. It wasn’t worth the arguments and the angst. Surveying the disaster area I once called home sweet home, it occurred to me that my kids have a LOT of toys. And it also occurred to me that they have an annoying need to… View Post

Our Trip To London – Day One

Just before the Easter weekend E and I went to London. I know this was a little while ago now. However, E keep’s talking about all the fun she had so I thought I would share some of our adventures. Most of it is photos and as we did so much I have decided to write three posts, hopefully you wont get too bored. No yawning! We travelled up to London on a Tuesday, arriving in London at midday at Paddingt0n, I had already pre booked tickets for the London eye so we headed straight there. Having lived in London and visited many a time, I was quite apprehensive about taking E. The first thing I was worried about was the underground. Not the actual train but the escalaters.  Seriously, have you seen how steep they are? Some of them resemble small ski slopes. I always get a bit worried stepping onto them.… View Post

A Special Gift : Name Your Own Star Review & Giveaway

When it comes to buy a special gift I sometimes struggle. When it is a gift for someone special I find myself spending ages looking for that perfect gift. Some people are harder than others to buy for. I had heard about owning a small piece of land to become a lady a lord. However I haven’t heard about naming a star for someone. The idea of having a star named after you is pretty special. Recently I was offered to review an Extra Bright Star Gift set from the Star Name Registry. I decided to name the star after my daughter Emily. She loves looking into the sky and looking at the stars so I knew that this would be the perfect gift for her and some thing she can treasure for the rest of her life. As I had never bought a star for anyone before, I don’t… View Post

What To Expect When you have a Caesarean Section

April is Caesarean Section awareness month. I am no expert when it comes to Caesarean’s, however as both my children were born that way so I am going to share my knowledge. Pregnancy is a wonderful time for most women. The excitement of becoming a parent, a wonderful bundle of joy. I felt all of this when I was pregnant. I hadn’t really thought about labour, I knew it was going to happen so I didn’t dwell on it. As far as I was concerned I was going to accept any of the pain relief I was offered. When labour started I was a little bit excited. Most women ideally want a natural birth, however there are many reasons why people have a caesarean section. Not just because they are to posh to push! Emergency Caesarean Section There are many reasons beyond the woman’s control that means you end up having an… View Post

My Parenting Little White Lies

With parenthood, I’ve found myself to be in several situations where I have to stretch the truth to really get the point across. E getting too smart to fall for most of it but I will still use them on both the children as long as I can, Your teeth will fall out – So, your teeth can fall out if you don’t take care of them obviously. However I make it sound more urgent.  When sweet stuff has been eaten and I am telling them that we have to clean their teeth really well or their teeth will fall out. Yes, I love your singing – My daughter can sing but there are occasions when it’s a form of torture and I think make it stop while putting my finger in my ear. Then she’ll ask me if she liked her song I simply reply ‘yes sweetie, it was beautiful’. I don’t have anything… View Post
