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

The Return

I’ve returned to normal life, as we know it. 4 weeks in and no one has died. There have been many tears but no one has died. Normal life for me now is in the office, once I’ve scattered my kids around Hertfordshire and ignored their pleas for one last hug. The guilt is deep … Continue reading

Mornings

Most of my days begin at 6am after being woken several times throughout the night by the baby crying out for a dummy/cuddle/parent or the cat attacking my feet/head/sanity. Still convinced its the middle of the night, I try to persuade her to go back to sleep, which results in her laughing in my face. True story. I then … Continue reading

Work. (Sulks).

So the prospect of returning to work has reared its ugly head and I’ve been forced to start thinking about my next steps as a frazzled mother of two. In all honesty I didn’t enjoy my maternity leave much with Dexter. It was fun and spending time with him was a joy but I found it … Continue reading

4.

Unexpected.

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

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

Our trip of a lifetime

We will be lucky enough to be travelling around and visiting Melbourne,  Adelaide and … Continue reading

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
