Co-Parenting; Nobody said it would be easy…

It was off the back of watching a feature on This Morning today that made me write this post, a story involving two ‘celebrities’ and one baby which had got ugly. Uglier than ugly – it’s a bit of a mess. Though it got me thinking about my journey of learning to co-parent, in obviously a much less dramatic way than them but it has been a journey all the same. Co-parenting is hard, I have been a single parent for a little under 2 years now. Back when the girls dad and I decided to split I was pre-warned…

Camp Bestival excitement!

The count down to Camp Bestival is well and truly on.  This year is the 10th anniversary of the iconic family festival and I just know 2017 is going to be bigger and better than ever. The awesome Pop Stars and Rock Stars theme being announced along with new preformers being added to the long list acts every week.

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…

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…
