Build-A-Bear Workshop is the leading and only global company that offers an interactive make-your-own furry friend retail-entertainment experience and has over 400 stores worldwide. Our nearest is Maidstone. We kept …

Pregnancy Diaries – 35 Weeks #3

I’m feeling big now. Really big and really heavy. Everything seems to be pulling downwards. I get a lot of pressure and discomfort in my lower bump which the midwife said is due to the fact P3 has been snuggled low in my pelvis pretty much the whole time, especially now. I’ve managed to pack the girls bags now and …

Letter To My Nan – 1 Year

Hi Nan, I don’t think anyone knew how we’d all react when today came. Monday and Tuesday I cried several times, feeling anxious and agitated about today. I knew I didn’t want to be moping around feeling sorry for myself. Today, the girls have been really treated and it was lovely to watch them have fun at Build-A-Bear. I know …

My Birthday Wish List

So it’s September already. We have a lot of things going on here. The 3rd will be a sad day as we remember one year since my Nan’s death. P1 goes back to school. Hubby and I celebrate our one year wedding anniversary on the 28th but of course more importantly, ha, on that day it’s my birthday. I’ve never …

“I’m really struggling to get comfy at night”

I can’t quite put my finger on my mood today. One minute I’m feeling ok, the next I want to cry then the next I’m agitated, then I’m ok again. I’ve spent the whole day with at least one of the girls touching me or clinging to me. I’ve had P2 elbowing me in the stomach or using me as …

Milkshake! Stars DVD Review & Competition

Milkshake starts at 6am every morning and is only on until 9am but houses some pretty awesome childhood favourites for me, like Mr Men, Thomas The Tank Engine and Fireman Sam to name a few. Both my girls really enjoy watching Milkshake as I think the shows are more catered for the younger viewers. On the 8th September 2014, Milkshake! …

31/31: The Best Bit About August

I can’t quite believe that tomorrow is September. A really busy month for us, with birthdays, anniversaries, potentially a birth of P3 and obviously the return to school. August has been a real mixed month. Busy days and lazy days. We’ve had laughter and tears. Tantrums and cuddles. We’ve done baking and art. Fed ducks and been swimming. I’ve really …

30/31: My Earliest Memories

I have quite a few memories from my childhood. I can’t quite pick one as being earlier than the other. 1) We lived adjoined to a veterinary surgery, the one where my mum worked, and I have so many memories of being there. I remember playing between the big bags of dog food stacked on shelves. I remember watching kittens …

29/31: 5 Things I Can’t Live Without

Easy peasy. Not exactly life or death but these are the things that make my life go round… 1) My husband. He’s my back bone. He’s taught me so much. He’s my absolute best friend. The main person I rely on for everything. He puts up with so much. 2) My Daughters. Without them I’d have no purpose. It’s that …

28/31: My Biggest Source Of Inspiration

I couldn’t choose between my Nan or my Grandad so I’m going to write why both of them are my biggest inspirations. My Nan I cannot remember a time where she was 100% well. She’d always get out of breath walking to town but she never really let it effect any of us. As things got worse, yes she’d complain …

Pregnancy Diaries – 34 Weeks #3

I’m getting increasingly nervous now. The fact that I have 6 weeks until my due date, but only 3 weeks until I’m classed as “term”. It’s scary. You’d think that I would be a pro at pregnancy and birth by now but I think the fact I only gave birth last year means that it’s all still so fresh in …

27/31: Overcoming A Difficult Situation

At just 21 years on this earth (very nearly 22) I’ve had quite a few difficult situations to contend with. I keep telling myself it’s all part of the journey through life but sometimes I feel like shouting “give me a break!!!” The main difficult situation occurred when I was just 15 years old. It was when I found out …

Bravado Confetti Nursing Bra & Seamless Pants Review

In a few weeks or less I’ll be handing over my beautiful boobies to our newest member of the household, P3, for her feeding needs and her comforting needs. I’m actually feeling a little nervous about it despite the fact I enjoyed it so much with P2. I think I’m worried of not being able to with P3. For something, anything, to …
