Positivity Breeds Positivity…


Life passes us by in a flash.  We are always so busy, there are little people to keep alive, work needs to be done, homes need to be run and that’s just the start of it.  A lot of the time our lives are planned to the very last detail, in an attempt to make it run as smoothly as possible.…

Thankful Thursdays…#4


What a glorious week, it feels like summer has finally arrived and what a scorcher it’s been! This week we took Baby J swimming for the first time and she absolutely loved it.  Seeing as Baby J is now thirteen months old I suppose we left it a little late to take her swimming.  The reason for this is that I…

Thankful Thursdays…#3


Ever since Baby J has been up on her feet, climbing all over the furniture and scaling the walls, we have noticed that both of her little feet turn outwards.  At first we weren’t phased, we thought it would just be something that would rectify itself as she grew bigger, stronger and started to walk properly. However, as the weeks…

Thankful Thursdays…#2


Welcome to week two of Thankful Thursdays…! This week has been a jam packed with Little E’s second round of immunisations, Baby J attended her little friends first birthday and Hubs has been heavy on the unpredictable shift work  with a couple of days spent away on training thrown in.  The days have literally flown by! It’s been so hard…

Acceptance…


I think that in a lot of situations, whatever it may be, acceptance is usually the key.  Accepting things, people, situations even lifestyles can often make our lives feel far less uneasy than if we are constantly trying to change things.  Even though the reason we try to change things is often because we think it will be better. Sometimes…

Sudocrem Care & Protect Review


With a newborn and a one year old in the house, this past year has brought with it our fair share of nappy rash. We have used many different types of nappy rash creams including the original Sudocrem, which has proven effective on many occasions. So when we were offered the chance to try out Sudocrem Care & Protect, I…

The Struggle with Two…


To My Babies, I’m trying my hardest, I really am. Before I had you I imagined that sometimes it would be difficult, that sometimes I would get mad or frustrated. Before I had you I imagined that times may get tough and our different worlds would collide. Then I had you.   I do get mad and frustrated.  Times are…

Parenting Highs…


Baby J’s birthday has been and gone in the blink of an eye! We spent the morning opening presents, playing with her new toys and in the afternoon we visited the Yorkshire Wildlife Park. YWP is a great day out for all the family (I love zoos!), if this sort of thing is up your street I highly recommend it!…

Two Under One…


Since becoming a Mother of two and a family of four, my world has been turned upside down and inside out for the second time in a year.  Now don’t get me wrong I wouldn’t change anything for the world (maybe a full nights sleep, but not the world), but sometimes I dream of a long relaxing spa day and…
