My Poorly Babies

My little people aren’t well 🙁

They’ve had runny noses for a couple of days – that’s no problem, it’s freezing and it’s bound to happen. Dropped them off to nursery yesterday for their first full day of their first proper ‘week’ (3 days) and off I set to embark on my jam-packed day of things I NEED to get done before I return to work whilst there are no little people around to distract me/stop me/turn a 10 minute job Keep reading…

The realisation that going out doesn't make me a bad mum

As much as I totally adore my babies and love them with all my heart, I sometimes feel a little stir crazy being with them all the time and never really getting to be me or go out. I only have my sister able to look after them (I don’t really have anyone else in my life that would either have them both or that I’d trust with them) and I feel guilty getting her to look after them as Keep reading…

She Looks So Cute While She's Sleeping

Would you wake a sleeping baby??

I’m so tempted to wake Alexa up. I think my baby girl is so cute when she’s sleeping (and when she’s awake for that matter) but the best part of her sleeping, aside from a chance for me to sleep or do things, is when she wakes up. That gorgeous little smile of hers that she gives when she’s just woken up and seen you is to die for and makes my heart melt, I’m Keep reading…

Payday And The Return Of An Old Friend

Payday… that magic day of the month where my bank balance looks semi healthy and manages to stay that way for ooh at least a couple of days before everything comes out. Only this month, nope, it doesn’t even last more than a few hours thanks to the nursery fees coming out …I want to cry, so bored of being this broke all the time…ah well, need to just man up I guess and wait for my lottery win that Keep reading…

More Good Deeds And A Bit Of ME Time

So today was the second settling in day…

It started well, I gave the nursery some play mats we don’t use any more, a wooden trike and tool bench that I was going to give Scott for Christmas but decided that they would be better used in the nursery and of course my little man can still play with them there and I’ll sort some different things out for Christmas, and last but not least I gave them our Jumperoo …Alexa Keep reading…

Settling In (For the kids or me?!)

So today was the first ‘settling in’ day for the kids at nursery ahead of my return to work, I’ve been stressing over it for ages but apparently there was no need for me to do so!

Scott ran off as soon as we got in there to explore and play with everything, Alexa got taken off me over to the baby area and didn’t sit there bawling her eyes out for me like I expected – or is that hoped?! Keep reading…

One of the bad points of being single

Don’t worry I won’t be listing them all, I don’t think I have that much time!!

Sod the lonely nights, no-one to cuddle up to whilst watching tv or just plain adult conversation, my main problem with being a single mummy today is …
having no-one to watch the kids whilst I go get checked out at a walk in centre/hospital or at least take me there and come with me and the kids.

It might sound trivial but this morning I was Keep reading…
