I Bought My Dad Flowers..

It’s my dad’s birthday today, or should have been, or whatever :/

Our first one without him.

No buying the customary pair of new slippers and socks, no tacky grandad or dad named bits, no new clothes, no dvds, no anything …well apart from some flowers I bought to put on his grave.

I bought my dad flowers for his birthday, first time ever, it feels kinda wrong buying a man flowers for his birthday but what else was I meant to get? Keep reading…

Alexa's Allergies…

My little girl doesn’t like to make things easy! Throughout my whole pregnancy with her I never felt her move which led to what felt like constant monitoring, I had various problems which needed monitoring as they thought I had a problem with the placenta etc and even when I had my c-section I then couldn’t cuddle her for ages as she needed to be warmed up for hours. 

After that she wouldn’t keep feeds down so we spent forever changing Keep reading…

Is It Just The Weirdos Round Here Or….

Random post but I NEEEED to know……

Is it just the weirdos round here or do people from all over the country avoid walking through posts under signs??

Do you even know what I’m on about?!

These type of signs…

I was waiting at the traffic lights this morning and watched all the kids from the local secondary school going completely out of their way to avoid going through the legs of the sign in the middle of the pavement. When I say completely Keep reading…

Challenge 1 – Unpacking My Quinny Moodd

So, it was Wednesday morning and there I was practically bursting with excitement over the fact I was getting my Quinny Moodd delivered at some point before 5pm. It was the day I’d been totally focused on and looking forward to for the past week, my thing to make me smile after the horrible few weeks I’d just had. I’d postponed Alexa’s 1year check and put off a few other things, taken the kids to nursery and was sat close Keep reading…

Waiting….

So on Wednesday I was going to be a ‘proper’ QuinnyCaster, you know, one that actually has a Quinny! I was so excited, I waited and waited and saw everyone else within the QuinnyCaster team post messages and pictures of their Quinny’s arriving and yet I was still waiting.

I’d postponed Alexa’s 1 year check, delayed going to sort out getting my dad’s name engraved on the headstone, was absolutely starving as I needed to go shopping but couldn’t leave the Keep reading…

:(

4 years ago today the most important woman in my life left me, and 2 weeks ago today the most important man in my life left too.

I miss them both so much

Love you Mum and Dad xx

I do not need a special day to bring you to my mind,
The days I do not think of you are very hard to find.
Each morning when I awake I know that you are gone.
And no one knows the heartache as I try to Keep reading…

I'm A QuinnyCaster!!

So, amongst all the crap in my life right now I’ve actually had one amazing thing happen to me and that was receiving the following email the day before my dad’s funeral last week:

Dear Michaela,
Thank you for taking the time to apply to be a QuinnyCaster.
I have great pleasure in informing you that you have been chosen to be one of our QuinnyCasters.

I couldn’t believe it, I’d applied a few weeks before whilst on a lunch break at Keep reading…
