The dawning of a new age…

I’m genuinely gobsmacked that as a country we have voted out of the EU. It’s not the news I thought we’d be waking up to this morning. I thought it’d be close but would swing the other way. It’s a difficult position to be in, not just because of the uncertainty and unrest, but because […]

The die is cast…

The biggest vote of our lives is being counted as I type. I’m just up feeding Bobbi and couldn’t help but check out the progress. We’re currently just leaning towards leaving (the EU) This feels like the dawn of something special. Hopefully in a good way. But it’s impossible to tell as we’ve been so […]

FREEDOM…

Do you ever have a moment, a day, a week where you think everyone is out to get you and your life is unmanageable? That’s me right now and I can’t see a way out. Dans managed to get a temp job which takes a lot of pressure off. He started this morning and has […]

Show me the silver lining …

I’m on maternity leave and Dan has lost his job. It’s our 8th wedding anniversary and he’s spending it out looking for work. Our cars are about ready to die and we’re in need of diy sos but we’re staying positive. We’re staying positive for our two beautiful daughters as they will have no clue […]

Catch 22

After a lovely, refreshing four hours of broken sleep, Robyn has decided it’s play time again, which is great. We’ve been downstairs for an hour while Dan and Nina sleep upstairs which is also great.

I had hoped for better…

Dan ordered this book as Nina (2.5) has been pushing our buttons at bed time for weeks. She’s trying her luck, she’s only little, she’s not designed to be quiet blah blah blah – but we’re both knackered and by 8pm the constant repetition of ‘mummy, what you doing?’, ‘daddy, what you doing?’, ‘deedle deedle […]

Breastfeeding a 4 month old

I fed her sister for 8 months and have blocked this stage from my memory because ITS HORRIBLE! We’d had it really easy this time around. First feed was a dream after an easy labour and birth (unlike her sister which was like the opening scene of the remake of ‘Carrie’)The last month or so she […]

I died a little bit inside today

It was 10:00 and Dan had been up for 20 minutes, after getting up at 6am and smuggling the girls downstairs quietly so at least one of us could get some sleep, doing the dishes he told me to leave last night – ‘leave them, I’ll do them’ like a ninja to keep the noise […]

Mummy would love a bath…

So my littlest sleep thief is also a bath wrecker. I ran a lovely hot bath – with bubbles and a Guinness on the side an hour and a half ago – the second I turned off the hot tap she woke up wanting to smile, coo and gurn at me. It was lovely, her […]
