I have been looking forward to this half term for weeks, not only because we have all needed a break and time off together for a while but also because the weather is slowly picking up and I am wanting to do more with Ellie.
Birthday's come and go so quickly don't they? I have never been a bit fan of celebrating my birthday, something about being in the spotlight I guess, it's just not my thing. I'd happily celebrate anyone else's in their's was the same day and so i've never really got excited about it. Turning 28 doesn't… Continue reading Twenty-Eight.
Wow the terrible twos are in full swing over here. I have always heard that redheads have fiery tempers but I'd never fully believed that hair colour could define temper yet I seem to have the fiestiest toddler ever!

Ellie confidently matches the character and likes pretending to get them wrong 😂. I don't use all the… Continue reading Matching Games

When Ellie was first born we saw 4 different health visitors in the first week, none of them knew our background and I felt myself explaining… Continue reading Health Review
December has been a busy month and I decided at the beginning of the month that I wouldn't blog but focus on family, work and life in general as December is always so busy. December meant the start of this year's #AdventForJason which has helped create so many memories and given me something to focus… Continue reading December
How do you deal with the "terrible twos"? Have you ever used a time out technique such as the "naughty" step? We have and I have explained our experiences here. #terribletwos #toddlerbehaviour #mblogger #pblogger
