This morning it was photo day at nursery, now getting dressed in the morning, as many parents will attest to is a battle in itself. Couple that with two children under 5 jacked up on advent calendar chocolate and a range of ‘princess’ dresses to choose from – well it’s like negotiating a peace treaty […]
So it’s been a while since I put pen to paper, so much has happened since I last wrote. It’s literally because I have been busy being present. Which means photos aren’t being taken as regularly and I am not off ranting about every little thing that upsets me. I’ve been actually joining in – […]
These days I am definitely more crummy than yummy mummy 😞
So, here you are, newly sprogged up and from what I can remember feeling unbelievably happy yet overwhelmed and a bit sore and teary. I mean wow what a shock right… the baby is ACTUALLY REAL!

It’s times like this I want to say thank you to my long suffering husband (AKA Barry Poppins). He never asked for any of this… the sleepless nights, the hormones, the tears and tantrums… but he has and is amazing through it all. Currently we are averaging around 5 hours solid sleep a night with […]
One of the hardest things about having babies is the feeding element – yes I know babies need food – but you get so completely obsessed with it, it in fact becomes a massive head f**k regardless if it’s your first or second.
Going back to work after maternity leave, luckily, my return to work for a big corporate isn’t as hard as for me, as I imagine it is for others.
