Football and the kid life balance

Parenting dilemma for this week centred around the big football game against Columbia. Do I stay home and put her to bed at 7, also kick off time (for the players, not my daughter) or take her with me to a mates house so I’ve at least got someone there to moan about the ref […]

A world of worry

We welcomed a new baby to the family this week and I can’t get out of my mind how much it is a welcome to a world of worry. Worrying about them, people around them, germs, even the air around them. Worrying when you’re with them that you’re doing too much, that you’re doing too […]

New Year’s Eve-what do you do?

I’m not a massive fan of New Year’s Eve, never have been, I think it’s for people who don’t normally go out and too much pressure to stay awake and smile, but I go along with it and mark it every twelve months. So, NYE-to go out or not? That’s the dilemma every year, when […]

A sport of sorts….

It sounds posh so I thought we'd go and have a look at a game of polo at the New Forest club. It was so lovely, we took a picnic and sat in front of the car on a rug eating jam sandwiches and sausages, while watching the ponies hurtle up and down the pitch. […]

The bugs are with us

We are just full of germs. The car will have to be fumigated rather than valeted when it goes back to Snows. I’m coughing and spluttering all over the dashboard of my Yaris, whilst little one has an endless stream of green coming from her nose, which ends up on the window, the seats and […]

Loaded up for hockey

I played hockey at the weekend and so my lovely Toyota Yaris has been loaded up, I mean loads of luggage, not only did I need my kit, but I also need to take about a weeks worth of entertainment for my daughter, which includes a buggy for sleeping, a bike, teddy, a bag of […]

It's all going swimmingly.

Friday Foods eaten- jam sandwich  Mess made- a few crumbs from the sandwich and a muddy footprint on the edge of the seat Bonus points for the Toyota Yaris- when you pull away at a junction it sounds like you’re taking off, which also doubles as a great in car game of aeroplanes  No sooner […]

My new Car….(it's not mine)

I’ve just been to pick up my beautiful top of the range Toyota Yaris from Snows Toyota (I have to remember it’s not mine). Before I had a child I had no idea how that can incur on your life, but yes even picking up a vehicle took 10 times as long, with an excited […]

A big blog perk

For 4 years now I’ve been blogging about how I constantly get being a mum wrong and letting you know about the mistakes and stupid stuff my daughter and I get up to. It has always served as a bit of therapy and of course you lovely people have helped me out no end with […]
