I wasn’t going to right a Christmas wish list post but after some consideration I thought I would. Whenever anyone asks me what I want I always claim I don’t know. This isn’t totally untrue as I often get caught off guard and in the middle of something. My brain doesn’t engage. I have always had lovely presents over the…

In a bizarre fit of insanity I thought it would be a good idea to take the girls hunting for pine cones so we could decorate them. I am not very craftsy. I cannot be bothered with the clear up or the mess, so I surprised myself when the suggestion passed my lips… Of course there was no going back…

I am a huge Christmas fan. I won’t lie; I start getting excited in September. I love Christmas shopping, even if I do it all online. I save all of my wrapping until Christmas Eve when I sit down with a Mulled Wine or Winter Jack and wrap all of the presents watching a Christmas film (or two). I have…

So the other day I was thirlled to recieve a notification from Lianne at MrsMummyHarris86 saying she had nominated me for the Liebster Award.  Quite simply it made my day!  So thank you, thank you, thank you! I really was so flattered you thought of me! So to explain the Liebster Award is designed for bloggers to nominate each other.  It…

Pinky is 3 1/2 now. Since she was about 2 she has decided what she wears. This started with just picking out an outfit from her wardrobe, we still actually chose the clothes in the shop. After a few months this progressed to only wearing things she has chosen from the off. I quite like this independent and decisive trait.…

Over the past few years what I consider to be ‘date nights’ have been fairly few and far between. I understand that this is somewhat inevitable once you have kids but it does grate on me. Then the other week I realised that that wasn’t a fair outlook on the time Hubby and I spend together. We actually spend quite…

This month Hubby and I will have been married for five years. It’s not that long in the general scheme of planning to be together for the rest of our lives, but I can’t believe it’s already been five years. This year our anniversary lands on a Saturday. Bonus! This of course means we are going out. Out out parent…

We are approaching our 5th wedding anniversary. We have been busy since we said ‘I do’, houses, children, work… the list goes on. I was sat in my office last week and just happened to catch a glance of the picture of Special One on my desk. I smile, that smile that only she can bring to me. I’m guilty of…

We are now roughly half way through the summer holidays and if I’m honest it hasn’t been as bad as I thought it would be. Pinky may only be at preschool currently but those 15 hours are invaluable to me. When she is there things are less rushed, I get slightly less pestered with just the one child, I get…

I have always been a great believer that friends are the family we chose for ourselves. I don’t have a sister and therefore I think this is really true when I talk about my best friend, Mase. Every now and again I get reminded of how important she is to me and how much I rely on her presence in…

A couple of month ago once I had finished working and officially became a housewife/stay at home mum (I hate those labels but not really sure what I prefer) I decided the only way to remain sane over the next few years would be to embrace it as wholeheartedly as I could. Ok, so I’m still working on the ‘wholehearted’…

The Birthday Weekend exceeded all expectations. Hubby did well on an epic scale! A nice relaxed morning of getting the girls ready and droppig them off at their Grandparents for the night, then straight to the train station and up to Waterloo.  We had lunch at Wagamamas ont he Southbank.  I enjoy Wagas even more now as we rarely get…

I turn 30 next weekend. I’m not really sure where the last year has gone let alone 30 of them! I’m OK with it though. Hubby really struggled turning 30 a few months ago, he’s not sure why but he found it very hard. Maybe the mourning of a lost youth? I am more optimistic about turning 30 as I…
