First vs second

It’s so true what ‘they say’ – as I sat talking to my lovely friends this morning (all amazing mummies) I realised how different I am this time around. First: – we bought all the things and decorated the nursery before she was born – sodding pointless – all of it, as she was in her […]

A touchy kind of day

This morning I gave Nina her breakfast (a bowl of cocoa pops) and she accidentally threw the whole sodding lot on the floor for me to clean up – while she laughed in my face. I’m still not allowed out of her sight. Literally. She cries if I leave the room – even to go […]

It was raining this morning so We went to soft play (the bottom of hell) to let Nina burn some energy.  I’d planned to have some cheeky chips but couldn’t as the fryer was knackered – gutted. Coffee and quavers didn’t quite cut it.  Bobbi had a long nap so I ran around in the […]

Bobbi’s cold has gone full blown, but she’s reached the sleeping stage, which is ace as she slept for 6 hours straight last night. Sadly, Nina got up at 05:30 as usual. I did not get to sleep for 6 hours straight ? Once we were all up and dressed I left the girls watching […]

I got to sleep in my actual bed with pillows and everything for the first time in 3 nights. 4.5 hours uninterrupted sleep for the first time in WEEKS – wahoooo!  I woke up covered in Bobbi’s bogeys as she had a cold so that’s not so good.  Nina came through demanding tea and chocolate […]

What have I done?

I know I’m not the only one who uses the iPad as a weapon. I’m not proud of it. I am but a woman.  When I’m making the dinner, tidying up, trying to have a waz it buys me a bit of peace ?  Nina is quicker on it than me. I’ll give it to […]
