Lottie Turns 3!

Saturday saw my littlest girl Lottie turn 3 years old! It’s quite crazy to think that this time three years ago I was at home cooing over my newborn with two toddlers and now I two children at school and my ‘baby’ is officially a toddler. A lot has changed in three years but we are all happy as ever. Lottie’s birthday celebrations started a lot earlier than I had hoped, she was awake at 1am telling me she was the birthday girl, jumping on me and asking if we could go down stairs yet. Excited is an understatement. Thankfully she…

Pyjama Party Nights

On Friday I discovered that after weeks and weeks of feeling up and down in my health that I am actually not going insane and I am not a hypochondriac who see’s every cold as a death sentence. No I have actually been fighting a bout of pneumonia for around 2 months. It was a real relief to actually hear the words and finally be put onto the right course of antibiotics to get me better again. With that in mind I just wanted a nice quiet weekend at home with the girls. Quiet and children are two things that rarely go…
