“Crying is a way of expressing emotions”

Butter wouldn’t melt… So P2s routine is going great today. Slightly off the times by like half hour or so… But other than that… Good! P1 is another situation altogether. There was me thinking P2 was the biggest of our worries but I actually think it’s P1 that needs some sort of structure. My usually very relaxed, happy and bright …

“my hubby has suggested he sleep on the sofa”

Right back when P2 was under 4months old is where the root of our problem lies. Right back when I jinxed our life! I praised and boasted about how well she slept, only waking once and on a bad night twice. Yup, that’s where the problem began! Last night was so awful that my hubby has suggested he sleep on …

“History is certainly repeating itself!”

P1 came home from school today with a tale that brought back many memories of my own school days. She told me that a boy from year 2 was picking her up in the playground and she didn’t like it.   History is certainly repeating itself! P1 is a tiny dot just like her Mummy and therefore I knew I …

“I don’t really know what careers there are in writing”

I want to learn something. I don’t know what. I’m interested in becoming a nail technician so that I can do it in my spare time. I’m also very interested in law, but gave up on the open university course that I started last year whilst pregnant. I’m the type of person that craves things but never finishes things. I …

“To some women it’s a sign of fertility and something to celebrate”

Today’s been a really bad day. Apparently our internet isn’t working as it should be… man talk! So I had the joyous company of a BT engineer again from 9-12:30! Stopping me getting my desperately needed tampons. Which brings me onto my next subject. My period. To some women it’s a sign of fertility and something to celebrate. For me, …

“A victim of domestic abuse”

I don’t think I’ve ever spoke about my past with P1s biological father. I guess because it’s not a very nice topic to talk about. It’s been two years and I think that is what has sparked my need to write about it. When I fell pregnant with P1 at the very young age of fifteen I thought I was …

“I’ve actually enjoyed being on Facebook. I’m an addict”

I’ve decided to take a break from Facebook. This didn’t come easy I have to say. I know that Facebook causes issues and I’ve experienced some of those issues first hand. A long time ago I went through my personal page and deleted absolutely everyone that I didn’t know personally, or barely spoke to. And since then I’ve actually enjoyed …
