I love you mum!

When little P turned 1, we had a Hungry Caterpillar themed birthday and I made her a memories box, in fact a good friend bought her a lovely personalised wooden box for everything to go in. It’s lush. And I’ve filled it and hidden it away ready to wrap and give to her on her…

Who said that?

One of my most popular posts is about not letting anyone tell you that you can’t do something, but often I find that person is me. Don’t get me wrong there’s times in life when someone else makes you believe you cannot do or achieve something but that’s only really because you allow them to.…

Guilty as charged.

I don't really know where to start with this one. Probably as the beginning is best. Seems petty though now I'm writing it down into words, but it's the thought pattern that this morning's events lead to that I'm brooding over. Little P banged her head, she ran smack into the corner of the car…

Handkerchief in his pocket.

I'm not meant to be writing right now, well actually I am, I'm supposed to be finishing my assignment ready to hand in at the end of the week...so I'm procrastinating...for a change. The thing is, when I write a blog post it's because I'm compelled to, something sparks or I'm mulling over something and…

Magic Tricks.

It’s hard being 3! No I mean it, it’s really hard being 3 years old. The goal posts move all the time, us grown ups but boundaries and rules in place that stifle freedom and expression then the next minute something that’s not allowed is allowed because the situation is different, but at 3 years…

Your favourite.

Just wants to belong…

I don’t really do reviews, it’s not why I write these blogs but sometimes I just feel the urge to. Tonight’s bedtime story was a present from a good friend and colleague. She’s a very kind heart and has often turned up with books her two teenagers loved at little Ps age for me to…

They’re all here for you.

The festive season and New Year always brings out people’s emotional and sentimental sides doesn’t it. Prosecco and gin also do, those that know me well know I’ve a tendency to fall in love with the world when I’ve had a few, declaring that “I just love you all so much” through tear filled eyes...…

Down playing it.

The run up Christmas is the best bit in my opinion, the jumpers, the music, winter walks and shopping trips with mulled wine, festive nights out and decorating trees. Ok this year has been different a lot of the usual build up we’ve had to miss out on but it’s still been exciting on the…
