Dinosaur troubles

My darling five year olds homework this week was to write a poem about a dinosaur, IN THE SHAPE OF A DINOSAUR! What? You have got to be kidding me? That sounds like parents home work to me and I have no jeffing idea where to start with it, when I draw a stick man […]

I need to stop saying yes!

Do you ever say yes to something and then get the fear because you don’t quite know what you’ve said yes to? That’s what I did yesterday at the end of a school volunteers meeting, they have these to run through health and safety, confidentiality and safeguarding, that kind of stuff, but at the end […]

Who needs shoes???

Okay I’m probably the worst mother in the world, I certainly was the worst mother in the school last one day last week when I sent my daughter without any shoes! The poor thing, I hadn’t packed (I drop her off at silly o’clock in her pyjamas to my amazing childminder) anything to go on […]

First day of school

It’s an emotional thing seeing your little ones go off to school for the first time. I knew that I would have tears, but I don’t really know why? Is it because it’s the end of an era, because they’re growing up so quickly or just pride in them? My daughter started today and I […]

It’s been a year of firsts and we’re not done yet, end of year teacher presents, what to get? When I saw boxes of matchmakers in the shops for a quid each I thought “Oh yes brilliant, a couple of boxes of them, who doesn’t like matchmakers?“ But when I spoke to some other mums […]

Excuses, excuses

Some excuses sound way too ridiculous to be true, like this. My mate missed her daughter’s parents evening because…..wait for it….she didn’t turn over her calendar. The appointment had been made for the 2nd of the month but got forgotten because it wasn’t on the front page of the wall diary! Haha imagine trying to […]

Nativity problems

The cast list has gone up and hearts are broken, she only got the role of sheep 2. You would think it was the end of the world for my friends 6 year old daughter, sobbing uncontrollably at the thought of having no other lines than “baaaa baaaaa!” To say at the nativity. I totally […]

1st day nerves

It’s an emotional thing seeing your little ones go off to school for the first time. I knew that I would have tears, but I don’t really know why? Is it because it’s the end of an era, because they’re growing up so quickly or just pride in them? My daughter started today and I […]

Arrrggghhh it's a home visit from school

I’m currently sat here waiting for my home visit from the school teachers from my little girls first class in infant school. Why are they coming? Is it to see how tidy my house is? Is it to check out how big my tele is, or how many cakes I have in the cupboard. I’ve […]
