Lately I've had quite a few messages asking my opinion on childcare options. Having a profession within the education setting sees me inundated with questions, queries, reassurances and general musings (which I love, honestly, ask away!). The play school/ nursery/ childminder/ pre-school debate is always something I see on the internet and now social media… Continue reading Childcare Conundrum
So this month I attended a workshop. I attended a workshop with other like minded ladies. A workshop that would help me to reconnect with me? Take time out? Feel less alone? Realise that we are all in this together? Yes. That is exactly what it was. A wonderful local Mama, Claire, has set up… Continue reading Mama Time
Ok, let's talk about how we can help our little offspring with reading. The English language is one of the most complex languages in the world. We have words that are spelt the same but with different meanings, spelt differently but sound the same and rules that don't apply most of the time (yes I'm… Continue reading Let’s Read
And by that I mean juggling. Metaphorical juggling more specifically. I'm left handed and have very bad hand eye coordination so ACTUAL juggling is a big problem for me. ANYWAY, I've been asked on a number of occasions to write a post on how I juggle life. What we do isn't perfect and I can't… Continue reading Top Class Circus Skills
Evelyn's room is possibly my favourite room in our (very small) house! Living in London means, at the moment, we have a two bed home. I love it because it is ours and needed little doing to it when we moved in. Previously owned by a builder, the house was perfectly painted, white and neutral!… Continue reading Evelyn’s Bedroom Tour
In the 820 (give or take a few) days I have been a Mummy I have changed. I have grown and learnt - yes, that's a given. I have taken on this life altering, permanent challenge that will be my greatest success.. blah blah blah. What you don't realise, as you paddle your way through… Continue reading The Many Versions of Mummy!
2016. Lets reflect. Well, this year we have settled properly into our new home and have started to think about how we are going to develop it this year. With plans for a new front door, new carpets, new fence panels and hopefully start thinking properly about an extension so I can finally have my… Continue reading Mirror Mirror
So, short sharp blog post today! I needed to share this beautiful video my lovely cousin has made to commemorate my daughters 1st birthday! It still blows me away when people do something... Anything... With my daughter in mind! A text, a photo, a keepsake... It seriously brings a tear to my eye!!! Love… Continue reading Love, Love, Love
To my darling Evelyn, It has been a whole year since the night you were born. The night that I had waited for. The night that was the scariest and most exciting of my life to date. The surreal notion of meeting you was overwhelming and I would relive that moment thousands of times if… Continue reading A Letter to my Daughter…
Today was my birthday. 29. 264 days left in my 20's. What a depressing thought!! Or maybe not. Maybe this will be the most exciting decade of my life so far!! I get to watch this little piece of me grow and change and learn and discover the world. Today we went for Evelyn's 10… Continue reading Happy Birthday Mummy!!
