Fathers Day, where’s my Father?

Father’s Day, so how’d you get past that one when she’s never even met him? He’s never said her name, bought her a birthday present or picked her up when she fell. It’s probably the only conversation she starts that I don’t really know where it’s going to finish. She asked me once who I’d […]

Arrrrgggghhhh World Book Day!

Tomorrow is World book day, our school didn’t dress up last year and I felt like they missed out a bit, but now I’m thinking it was great cos it took all of the stress away. You know how it goes, the email comes out from the school , everyone goes crazy for a couple […]

Father’s day with no father

Father’s Day, so how’d you get past that one when she’s never even met him? He’s never said her name, bought her a birthday present or picked her up when she fell. It’s probably the only conversation she starts that I don’t really know where it’s going to finish. She asked me once who I’d […]

The Cosy Club

We were very lucky to be invited along to the launch of The Cosy Club in Gunwharf Quays last week and I would thoroughly recommend it. The restaurant has a kind of 1920’s feel to it with all the staff dressed in frilly puffy skirts and red lipstick and the paintings on the walls make […]

There have to be some perks to being a mum?

Being a mum is pretty much a one way street, kids are very much take, take, take. Food, time and money, those little monkeys will grab whatever you have and still come back for more. So I’ve been looking for a few perks and come up with a list of my favourite 3. 1)      Having […]

Half term ‘not’ fun

How does half term go down in your house? If you’re anything like me you’ll plan away every second of the week. On Tuesday evening I asked if she’d like to know the surprise treat I had planned for the following afternoon, the excitement spilled out of her “oh yes please please please tell me, […]

The day out in London

I really do try and get the best and the most out of life I think that it should be about experiences and new things and yesterday we had is just an amazing experience. We took the kids on the train to London I’ve researched it and try to work out where to be and […]

The kick start I needed to lose weight

I can tell you that faced with a video of your bare behind is one of the most shocking things that can happen! I was deleting videos from my phone cos it’s January and I’m having a clear up, when I came across said film. I thought my daughter had been creating a movie with […]

Cute politics

Brexit is all a bit of a mess isn’t it? We watched the debate in the House of Commons on Monday afternoon because my 5 year old is trying to become a school councillor so I was explaining the basics of government. Obviously when they address anyone in the house they reply to their “Right […]

Homemade Christmas

I’m sure you’ve done this at some point in your life, everyone does right? I had a beautiful bouquet of flowers in a vase but they were coming to the end of their days, the petals had fallen off. Before I could clear them to the bin my five year old had collected them up […]
