My Labour of Love – The Garden

We bought our house nearly 3 years ago and the first Summer that we lived here we didn’t do anything to the garden, it didn’t need doing – we had lawn, patio and decking and it was a really lovely, fully functional garden. But we did have an area at the end of the garden that we just didn’t even look at – we have 140ft garden and so it…

This Time Last Year

This time last year was my first day back at work after maternity leave with LP. I had been off work for nearly 15 months and LP was 13 months old. We’d organised a Childminder and I was going back to work fulltime and back to the job role I had left the year before – with the same lovely team. Unbeknown to us I was also about 4 weeks…

Post-Baby Weight Loss Journey – Weeks 13/14

I didn’t go to my Weight Watchers weigh-in last week as LP was poorly. LP’s still poorly but she stayed home with Hubby while I went to Weigh-in this morning. The last couple of weeks, as we’ve been housebound because of the poorly children, weight watching has gone out the window. Cake has been a comfort! It is then with no surprise that I put on 0.5lb. I am now…

She knows the difference between a wee-wee and a be-boo and knows…

She was never a very sucky/chewy baby and she didn’t really get attached to any of her toys or anything – they were all loved for 5 minutes before she would move on to the next one! What were our first impressions of the Snooze Baby Sweet Dreaming Comfort Toy? When Snooze Baby sent me a Sweet…

Double Bathtime {The Ordinary Moments}

The Ordinary Moments is a chance to celebrate the little things that happen in your day to day life, the normal things. When blogging we tend to focus on the big milestones but the small, ordinary things are just as special and important. Double bathtime is something we’ve been doing for the last couple of months but it’s something we still only do once a week – Little Man doesn’t…

Why I am glad that Summer is over…

We can all agree now, the Summer is over. The leaves are turning brown and orange, the sky is grey, it’s colder than it has been in months and the evenings are getting darker earlier. Summer is behind us. For that I am glad. We had an amazing Summer. LP spent whole days in the garden, regularly coming indoors with a dirty face, messy hair and muddy feet. LP had…
