Well, I feel quite ashamed to say this, but when I excitedly opened up the parcel this week to find the adorable little Furby Connect sitting oh so cutely in the packaging, for some reason I came across all maternal!  Not something you usually hear from someone who turns the big 4-0 next week, huh! But seriously, it’s just the most adorable little guy (I think it’s a boy) and I just wanted to pick it up and give it a big cuddle. So I did! Anyway, moving on swiftly from there! Basically to say I’d been a little excited for the week was a bit… View Post

Here is today’s Sunday Photo! Not such great quality I’m afraid, but I’ve entered it for the moment which I caught on camera. Last weekend, instead of jumping out of bed to quickly gets kids up and dressed for things like dance class or to go out for the weekly grocery shop, we decided to have a very leisurely and relaxed lie in bed, instead. I think I was catching up on social media, as always, Mikey was watching his new Netflix addiction, Suits, and the girls were pretty much running around and causing mayhem and general carnage.

For a long, long while now, I’ve wanted to do a question and answer session with Holly. And when she is more able to understand the questions, Ella too!

That said, I’m trying my hardest to overcome my little problem and therefore really trying to push myself out of my comfort zone, especially while I’m home for the next few weeks nursing Ella back to health after her accident and until she can walk properly and hold her own again before sending her back to nursery. A perfect opportunity one might say! So, without further ado I give you my latest masterpiece creations: Butterflies!  Made from paper plates… View Post

I try my hardest to be the best mum I can be. To fill the girls days with endless opportunities. Outings, walks, playdates, pretend play and craft activities. All to let them express who they are, enhance their little imaginations and broaden their experiences. But I struggle with Messy Play!! As soon as the words ‘paint, playdoh, PVA glue or even felt-tip pens‘ get mentioned, I practically get the shakes!! It fills me with dread! But, being the good mummy I’m endeavouring to be, at the same time as the nerves I will make sure I sport a happy smile upon my face,… View Post
