Weekend – hashtag family time

Weekend – hashtag family time

So what does this mean to the average family? Does it mean painting the perfect social media portrait of quality time with your kids, indulging in wonderful activities that everyone enjoys? Does it mean spending all your weekend with one another because the weeklong slog makes the dedicated time together so worth it? Or does … Continue reading

New Term = FREEDOM!

New Term = FREEDOM!

September is most definitely my favourite time of year. I love the holidays and I love the sunshine, but even more, I love a fresh start, a new term, and a quiet house! My social media feeds are full of a mix of weeping mothers, missing their kids, having spent the holidays together, creating memories. … Continue reading

Baby Blake is 1!

52 weeks ago you came into our lives, very quickly and a bit earlier than we were prepared for, but in the most magical way. Clearly a FOMO (fear of missing out-er) in the making, you just didn’t want to let the Christmas celebrations happen without you. Giving birth to you at home really was … Continue reading

11 month itch

Last week marked my darling Blake turning 11 months old, which in turn marks a month until I have to return to work. I’m so very sad about having to return to work and leaving her. I was hammering down the office door at around 10 months with Dex, safely returning back on payroll by … Continue reading

Tweet tweet to the happy couple

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

4.

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

Unexpected.

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

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

Waterbabies

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

The Elephant

I lost my shit today, sadly with those that care the most about me, my family. I lost my shit over something that wasn’t their fault, but something that has been bubbling up inside of me for a while. Blake has eczema, the same as Dexter had, but sadly it’s on her face so very … Continue reading
