Bliss Buggy Push!

This is a plea… A plea for everyone to dig deep in their pockets (virtual, online pockets) and donate to a charity that is very close to my heart, Bliss. I don’t normally take part in anything to do with charities. I hate the way they rattle their tins in your face when you walk down the high street or …

Wedding Planning – 115 Days To Go

So far wedding planning has gone quite smoothly. I’ve probably just jinxed that. We have got the date we wanted, and managed to book the reception venue we wanted. Ok, it’s not our original plan of having it all done in a beautiful stately home, but it’s still going to be perfect. We’ve ordered our invites, I’ve chosen a dress …

Gym Session Or Relax Session?!

Since our weekend away I’m happier, I think my OH is happier and our lives together is a lot more calmer. On Monday night we enjoyed another baby-free evening together. I always love being on my own with my OH because it reminds me that we are still “normal” people deep down. We still have a relationship that the fire …

God Looks After Nightmares

I’m feeling very guilty this morning. I was moaning about my brothers alarm vibrating on the floor above our bedroom waking us up to my mum through the bathroom door when P1 suddenly starting crying. I rushed into her room. She was clearly very very upset. She’d had a bad dream and the way she described it I’m not surprised …

Allergic Reaction

Whenever I ask my OH to get me something from the shops I always get really nervous about what he’ll actually bring home with him. I had one of these incidents when I went into hospital to give birth to P2. With the amount of false alarms and hospital visits I’d run out of the little travel sized spray deodorants …

Our Weekend Away to Aldeburgh

We’re back to reality. We spent Friday to Sunday in Aldeburgh, a very beautiful seaside town in Suffolk. We stayed at the Wentworth Hotel which was paid for by my Mum for my OH birthday present from them. The hotel was just stunning. Really old fashioned, very posh and the staff were all welcoming. We didn’t know what to expect …

Mums Birthday Meal Ruined

We had an awful evening. It was my Mums birthday meal, her birthday is actually today but we are going away for the weekend. We went to test the food at the place we want for our reception venue. That part was fine. Something was completely wrong with P2, I tried everything… Boobie, nappy changing, covering/uncovering blankets, rocking, swinging, carrying, …

Building Up A Supply

I’ve been quite relaxed about expressing my breast milk. But now P2 is 16 weeks old I know that the weaning stage is right around the corner. My OH and I have agreed to wait until she’s at least 6 months before she starts on baby rice. Even though I weaned P1 at 4months. I read on the back of …

Opposites Attract

It’s been a very long day today. P1 started our day with an argument over food and then over wearing tights. My Mum had booked the day off to spend with us so having it start so dramatically was a little frustrating!! P2 had the horrible visit to the nurses room to be jabbed in the thighs. This time one …

Little Bit Angry With Judgemental Know It Alls

I recently came across what I thought was an amazing website when searching for breast feeding jewellery. It was a website for young parents. Kind of like a support group with lots of information. There was a link where you could contact them to join their team. I was definitely up for that. I’m very proud of what I have …

We always get to do something different when visiting my MiL. Always exciting. Today’s adventures was a summer fair. It was not what we expected. We thought it would be in a school field, few stalls and maybe a bouncy castle. But nope, there was a dog show, loads of stalls and several bouncy castles and inflatable stand. We enjoyed …

Chinese Meal

It was my Mums friend, now my friend too… I hope… Engagement party tonight. I felt a bit nervous about going as it was at a Chinese restaurant. I hate Chinese, the food not the people. It’s mainly because I’m such a fussy eater. I hate to try new things. Such a child. Well, we went along and had a …
