Goodbye January

Potentially the longest January to date has now come to an end! People go one of two ways in January; they either embrace it, love it, go for dry Jan, throw themselves into resolutions or they do January blues. The short, cold, dark days get the best of them and they can’t wait for January to end. I am a mix of the two, this January for me has been good. The girls and I have had some fun days out, we’ve embraced that cold weather. I have pretty much lived in a wooly hat and been fighting a quite nasty…

Bella Turns 5!

My baby Bella you are 5 years old today!  This time 5 years ago I was probably trying to negotiate ‘just a little bit’ more pethidine out of the midwives – Saying ‘please I wont tell anyone’ does not work just FYI.  It was all so worth it. You gave us such a scare when you were born no breathing straight away it was terrifying seeing everybody flap about, pressing buttons and calling doctors. Thankfully you were back with me within a few minutes just led in my arms just staring up at me with those big blue eyes of yours. You putting…

Handwriting With Stabilo

My daughters love to write. As soon as Maisy started school and was coming home telling us all about her hand writing all of them started taking a keen interest. Now Bella has also started school it has only escalated. They will all sit to the table drawing pictures and writing the stories to go with them. Lottie’s understandable is marks but she knows what she wants to write as she reads it all back to me after. There is something so nice about actually putting pen to paper yet it seems to be dying out. I myself am guilty…

Wintery Beach Walks

Once again I find myself miserable with a cold. I hadn’t’ been able to shake the last one from back in December, so to find myself feeling crappy again really isn’t the best. Being ill with children means you don’t really have the time to be ill at all. You dose up, you suck it up and you carry on with your day. Thursday’s are always Mummy and Lottie day’s. She has no nursery, I don’t work that day at all if can be helped, so we head off to do something fun together. Cold or no cold it was…
