Scaredy Cat

This year is the first year we’re going trick or treating, and to ease Dexter (and the OH in) we’re only going to visit friends and family. We’ve kinda celebrated Halloween in the past by just being at home and answering the door to kids in bin bags. This year will be the first that … Continue reading

DKD’s Animal Spectacular

DKD’s Animal Spectacular

For Dexter’s 2nd birthday we decided to host a party at our home in our brand new sparkly garden. Dex is mad on animals so we thought an animal theme would be ideal, and I love dressing up so what better than for all the kids to come dressed as their favourite animal! I created … Continue reading

Guess Who’s 2?

Guess Who’s 2?

DKD is 2 years old! Blimey we have a 2 year old. An official toddler. A little man that runs around being all little manly. Our son, our world, our absolute everything, what did we spend our money on before you? He’s amazing (obviously biased). He’s like this mad, bubbly, nutty little dude that has … Continue reading

The K-D’s Visit Kos

Whilst most families are heading away on their summer holidays about now, the K-D’s are still reminiscing about theirs. We went to Kos at the beginning of July, just before the schools finished. And just before it got silly hot. Kos is familiar to both of us. The OH lived and worked there for a … Continue reading

A Letter To My Boy

A Letter To My Boy

Oh DKD do you have any idea how much you brighten my life? How much you make me smile so broadly I think my cheeks will split? How you make coming home from work that extra bit special? It’s your cheeky face, your grubby little hands, your dimply bum, your chunky thighs and your long … Continue reading

The OH’s Special Day

Today is the OH’s birthday, his 39th to be precise and the fact that I will never be as old as him always makes me smile. The aim of this post isn’t to gush about how much I love him, how much I adore him and how much my world turns for him. God no. … Continue reading


Today is World Book Day so I wanted to write a little post about my small bookworm and his love of “reading”. Out of all the toys Dexter owns I can confidently say his favourite will be a book. He’s progressed from eating them to now sitting down and flicking through the pages. Dexter loves … Continue reading


Guilt is a funny old thing. I seem to be constantly wracked with guilt. Not the stomach churning guilt that I experienced as a kid when I got caught nicking some Fruit Pastilles (sorry Mum); but small pangs of guilt, 5 days a week when I leave my baby boy and go off to work. … Continue reading


I’m rubbish. I’m sorry I’ve not been in contact but bloody hell I’m busy. Time is flashing by faster than you can say “zoom” and I’m struggling to get anything done. I’m tired, knackered in fact, and sod me my back is killing me. Is it age? Probably. Is it from carting my lazy son … Continue reading

Gushy and Mushy

Wowee. There’s nothing like buying a house with someone and falling head over heels in love with them all over again! The OH and I have had a few testing months. Nothing too worrying, just the stresses and strains of everyday life. We’ve both been working long hours and our commitments meant we were like ships passing in … Continue reading
