2016 with the Sleep Thieves

Half an hour in … My waters spontaniously broke like the falls of Niagra so we popped off for a jolly visit to the hospital, where a lovely lady called Katy fed me drugs until my baby was delivered 4 hours in… We became a family of 4. Bobbi arrived 12 days late and in […]

The Christmas Tag.

1 Sleep to go!!! If you haven’t got in the Christmas spirit yet this is definitely the time to do so – pour yourself a large glass of something alcoholic and soak up the festive atmos. The lovely patricia over at White Camelias as asked me to answer a few Christmas related questions and I of […]

The Elf on the Shelf 2016 – Day 8

This morning I awarded Eddie the Elf with an imaginary SIA card and told him to guard the tree. He is now a ‘tree bouncer‘. If I could have been bothered I’d’ve got him a wee black cashmere coat and an earpiece, but this is a delightfully half arsed attempt at being creative so I didn’t. […]

The Elf on the Shelf 2016 – Day 7

This afternoon Eddie the Elf and I decorated the Christmas tree. Eddie thought it would be a great idea to put chocolates on as well as a mix of shop bought and home made decorations. Eddie was wrong. Bobbi wants to eat all the chocolates and lick the SALT DOUGH decorations.  (They are not going to be […]

The Elf on the Shelf 2016 – Day 5

Today we came down stairs to find Eddie the greedy little shit eating chocolate spread right out of the jar… Eddie is a silly billy chow cheese who definately hasn’t managed 10,000 steps today and if he’s not careful he’ll end up like a rotund little roly poly. I’ve managed to clean his face, but […]

The Elf on the Shelf 2016 – Day 4

Last night, for some crazy reason, I decided that Eddie the Elf would make an Elf Sprinkle Angel. Why I thought this would be a good idea I don’t know. It was stupid. Nina was impressed. She ran towards it like a crazed sugar junkie and started cramming the sprinkles in her mouth instantly. Not […]

The Hangover.

This morning I woke up naturally at 8am. By naturally, of course I mean without being talked to or shouted at, without a light being shone in my eyes or being twatted with a toy. I peeled my eye lids from my dehydrated eyeballs after sleeping for 8 hours solid for the first time in almost […]

The Elf on the Shelf 2016 – Day 3

This morning me and my hangover worked together to produce pretty minimal effort Elf based hi-jinx… We wanted Eddie to be having a pikey bath with ‘dauder‘ but we can’t find her. I looked everywhere as Nina has been asking about her for a couple of days but she has been temporarily (I hope?) misplaced. […]

Mummy and Daddy’s night of Freedom.

Last night we went out as Donna and Dan for the first time this year, knowing that there would be no night time parenting.  It was great! I dropped the girls off with my Dad at 4:30, got home and realised that we had no ‘getting ready booze’. This was unacceptable, so I popped to […]
