My tips for getting through the first trimester

My first trimester of pregnancy is done and dusted! I made it through some dark times when I thought my head may actually be stuck down the toilet for good, I am finally seeing that light at the end of the tunnel everyone talks about in the second trimester. I can now stay awake past 9:30pm (woohoo party animal) and I am so relieved that paranoid ‘have they guessed I’m pregnant?’ phase has passed, as now the happy news has been shared with all our close friends and family and I can start enjoying the ‘oo you put your feet… View Post

We’re Having A Baby!

Words I never thought I’d be announcing again; I Am Pregnant!  I have been keeping this little secret in for what feels like forever, but now its finally out – we’re having a baby!  My tribe of three will become a four this summer with our little blessing arriving to join in the madness.

Bella turns 8!

What a weekend!  Bella turned 8 on Friday so naturally a weekend of celebrations followed.

On The Beach..

I think we can all agree January so far has been dark and dismal. I’ve been leaving for work in the dark and driving home in the dark. The sunshine this weekend was so welcome, despite it being freezing we headed straight to the beach. Before we knew it the sun started setting but it didn’t mean home time for us. We spent a good couple of hours scooting,(walking in my case) running down to the sea, finding shells and building castles. I almost love a winters walk on the beach as much as I love a hot summers day… View Post

Becoming Hockey Heroes!

Finding sports that your children love to get involved with can sometimes be a little bit of trial and error. I, like most parents want my girls to find a hobby they love and look forward to as well as being great exercise and good for developing social skills. We’ve tried the dancing, we’ve done the swimming but after a few weeks and once they’d learnt to swim they lost interest. So we’ve been looking for something new, something a little different and we found Hockey! The girls were invited to join a six week Hockey Heroes program with England… View Post
