Today is The Birds wedding day. Mr. Ray Bird is marrying the very gorgeous Miss Katy Dickson, and we can’t wait to see them looking all beautiful and gorgeous. I absolutely love my old housemate to bits. Katy is one of the kindest, most loving people I know. She is funny without even trying to … Continue reading


Today is my chatty companions 4th Birthday. 4 whole years he’s been here, 4 very short but very fun years. Dexter is a micheveous boy with such a big heart. Yes he does make my ears bleed with his many, many, many questions but he makes me smile every morning with the same line, “is … Continue reading


Today Dexter had his last transition afternoon at school before he starts properly in September,  and I cried. Like a twat. This was most unexpected because I’ve been really excited about him starting school, his brain desperately needs to learn and someone else needs to answer his constant questions, because I’ve run out of answers!  … Continue reading

Half a year

Beautiful Blake, my baby girl. 6 months ago you made your way into the world, a bit too hastily for my liking, but I get the impression that’s pretty much how you roll. Your big Blue eyes sparkle every day, your little cherub face crinkles up when you smile and your funny shrieks fill the … Continue reading

My Housemate

The OH and I are not ones for PDUA (public displays of unnecessary affection). We’ve never been soppy or traditionally romantic, in fact we NEVER celebrate our anniversary (it was 8 years in April) but it doesn’t mean our relationship isn’t rock solid (witnessing your baby mama getting her vagina stitched up on your lounge … Continue reading


I’m sat on the train on my way to a very good friends wedding. I’m on my own though, I’ve left the OH at home with the babies. And I’m wracked with guilt. Ok maybe not 100%, maybe 90%? Ok, ok, I’m at least 70% wracked with guilt that I’ve left him at home to … Continue reading

5 Time Saving Tips for a New Mum

Babies swallow up time faster than you can say “bugger it’s 3pm”. They are the best waste of time, plus the really good ones stop you from doing any household chores. So here are my tips on how to save a bit of time when the baby is taking it all. 1. Getting dressed. Get … Continue reading

My Shadow

Despite being a mother already, I’d never really experienced having someone solely dependent on me before having Blake. Even though Dexter was EBF, he took a bottle straight away and I expressed and had freedom since a few weeks after he was born, this also gave the other important people in his life the chance … Continue reading


There was a lot of love in our house earlier, specifically from 18:25 until about 18:48, or more commonly known as, Bath time. Both my kids love the water, it’s their happy place. I don’t know if it has any relevance to their love of water but I used to lull in the bath for hours … Continue reading
