Today Pinky asked me why I don’t take her to and from nursery. Although I’m currently on maternity leave and more than capable of doing it, and although on a rare occasion I do pick her up if Hubby has a late meeting, when I go back to work I won’t be able to. I thought I was fine with…

October was a strange month as it started in Greece. Having flown out at the end of September for a two week holiday we were well on our way to relaxing (well as much as you can with two young children). It was our special blow out holiday to celebrate us both turning 30 over the next couple of months.…

Children must leave behind a special kind of patience in their mothers when they are born. I do not possess much patience naturally. I never have. Yet somehow I am finding the patience to let Pinky attempt to put her own shoes and clothes on. I’m finding ways to accept that it takes 20-30 minutes to get out of the house…

I like Tuesday. I always look forward to Tuesday. It’s the day of the week where I get to spend the whole day with Perky by myself. Pinky goes to nursery for the day, we kept her going even whilst I’m off work so she still has a place when I return. I enjoy making the most of these days,…
