Wide Awake Club

I’m a sadist. I quite enjoy the 4am feeds as they’ve become my time to surf the web, catch up on some reading and checking my twitter and instagram feeds without feeling guilty that I’m not giving my full attention to both babies. I do, of course, like the soft baby cuddles with Blake and … Continue reading


Recently the OH shifts have changed at work meaning he’s working most evenings and nearly every weekend. Whilst this was never a problem when it was just Dexter to look after, there is now a colicky baby added to the mix and I’m finding myself wishing the hours would pass quickly instead of just trying … Continue reading

Introducing my daughter….

Introducing my daughter….

So after consciously uncoupling from my blog for the past 2 months I’m ready to get my blogging on again. And what better way to come back than with a bit of lovely news…..I have a daughter! Wow. Still feels weird to say (type) out loud. Blake Kauder-Day was born on Friday 12th December at … 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

Time to Hibernate

I’ve always had this vision in my mind of mums getting up at the crack of dawn and starting their day with a nice relaxing coffee before the kids get up. Their only opportunity to sit and focus on the day ahead before tornado child rouses. I thought this would be a natural progression and … Continue reading

Back to life, back to reality

Eeeeeeeekkkkkkkkkkk. It’s my first day back in the orifice, I mean office, tomorrow. Crap. I’m petrified. Petrified that I won’t be able to remember any part of my job let alone manage to turn my computer on. As far as I know I haven’t even got a desk yet. It’s like starting a new job … Continue reading

Things I wish I’d known

With many lovely friends all around me up the duff or having just had their babies it made me think back to the early days and see if I’d change anything. Yep quite a few things actually. 1. 1+1+1= new family I so wish we’d limited our visitors to 0 a day until Dex was … Continue reading

Sleeping like a erm, baby?

I cannot remember the last time I slept through the night without waking at least once. Whilst pregnant I would wake at least twice a night during the 1st and 2nd trimester to empty my bladder, then at least 57 times a night during the 3rd trimester trying to get comfortable. When we brought Dexter … Continue reading
