Happy new year.

So 2017 was not my year for blogging, with that in mind I’m planning some changes to help me blog more regularly. I’m thinking of having set days that I post, maybe 2 or 3 a week? Maybe a little ambitious? We’ll stick with 2. I am thinking of revamping the blog, and cleansing it…

Countdown for Mumma.

Check me out, this year I have been on 2 holidays completely child free!!! Both holidays were with my best friends, my first with my friend Amie to Tenerife for winter sun! And the second with my  friend Becks, to join her as her bridesmaid to watch her say ‘I do’ in Cyprus. Leaving the…

Where’s my routine gone?

Today was Bears second day back to school and her first day back to nursery. They have driven me INSANE over the last 6 weeks, but my god I was not prepared for the lost feeling I had today, after dropping them both off. I phoned Tom, my sister and my Dad… no reason atall,…

Baby shower badges

The other day I attended my friends baby shower, this was the first baby shower I have been too where the mummas daughter also attended and it got me thinking.  Do the new big sis to bes get my special treatement like Mumma?  I made up some matching Mummy and Big Sis floral fabric badges…

And breath Mummy…

Deep breath in.. deep breath out… it’s not working! I’m livid. So the other day, I discovered that Bunny has left bite marks on our bedroom blinds. Did I say NEW, Very very expensive bedroom blinds?? No, well they were. And for those who don’t know, bunny is not the fluffy kind with long ears,…

Nursery or not to nurseryΒ 

Before I left my previous job, and started my VN career break J went to nursery one and a half days a week and spent the other half day with my mother in law.  But Bunny didn’t attend nursery, she has since started though.  And at times I find myself doubting if she should be….

Bunny & Nursery update.

**Update- She’s loving it** few month ago: Today is her second morning at nursery this week, following on from our settling in sessions post, she was doing so well. This morning I left nursery crying after having my little girl peeled off of me. I feel so guilty, I’m getting ready to go to my Mummy exercise…

Feeling blessed

I have a poorly brown bear today. He is not even 2 full weeks into school and he’s having his first sick day.  He’s currently snuggled up (in his bear onsie) on me fast asleep!  As much as I miss my job I feel extremely lucky to be able to stay at home, in times…

Wardrobe Wars

Bunny is really becoming an independent little Miss lately.  She’s extremely strong willed and stubborn. She’s developed a love for dressing herself, this started a few weeks ago and I was pleasantly surprised at how well she put her ‘outfits’ together; I mean they matched and everything!  This last week they are anything but matching….

New parents meeting!Β
