We have a case of Thursdayitis…

It’s funny and it hadn’t dawned on my before, but I am noticing a pattern, in our tiredness levels, the general outlook and attitude and length of temper as the week moves on. Monday morning, we are all keen for school and nursery, and I look forward to the week, at work, because usually, I […]

One for Granddad!

He will probably be a little bit cross and embarrassed at my singing his praises on the blog and making a fuss, but because my Dad (AKA Granddad) is heading off on his travels this week, and will be away for a stretch of time, I thought I would write him a little post all […]

A weekend alone!

LSH and I decided a while ago, that with Small Boy now sleeping better, and handling life more easily post grommet insertion, that it would be lovely if we could have a weekend away, just for us. We haven’t been away, alone, since before we got pregnant with said Small Boy, which is nearly 4 […]

Becoming a Brownie, then and now…

This boy…

Is nearly 3 and a half. We have been through a lot together, and I am really, really struggling to let go, and to relax at the idea of him being at nursery school. I don’t know why I am so emotional about it. He is SO ready, and SO excited, and will have such […]

Wriggly Rascals

I was very excited to be invited to be a guest blogger at Wriggly Rascals, which is a fantastic site, created by Shona Motherwell.

The busiest day in my week

Is Monday, and I don’t know how I managed to land it all, on one day. I join The Oliver’s Mad House Magic Moment’s linky every week, but because Monday is so manic, and I work Tues-Thurs, I often don’t get to look at any of the other lovely blog posts in the link up […]
