Primary School Offer Day

In an ideal world I'd have been one of those nervous parents waiting to find out what school my boy had gotten in to. In an ideal world he'd have been accepted to the primary school where I work! In an ideal world I'd already have his uniform, or parts of it in preparation and… Continue reading Primary School Offer Day

27th March

I can't help but wonder whether that day was when everything started going wrong. Illness had struck, I worked in a nursery at the time and the sickness bug had hit the kids. The day I was due to finish for my maternity I ended up having off as I was being sick and I… Continue reading 27th March

Saying Goodbye.

28th April 2015 Our final goodbyes. I don't know how we got to that day, the month after Jason's birthday seemed like a whirlwind and not for the reasons we wanted it to be.  Looking back I realise that we didn't know how to plan Jason's funeral and there was no-one to really offer any… Continue reading Saying Goodbye.

7th October…

The first time we saw you. I'm the first to tell people I hate FaceBook. I created a new private account just so I could keep up with groups/pages I liked without being hit by unwanted posts or conversations with people. I have since reactivated my old fb account to plan Ellies 1st birthday and… Continue reading 7th October…

Baby groups.

Baby Groups. A topic that can show you exactly what type of mummy you are talking to. You get those mummies who absolutely love baby groups with their best friends (who also have babies) who 'do' lunch afterwards and you get those mummies who shudder at the thought of attending a baby group and interacting… Continue reading Baby groups.

Illness.

Babies, children and adults get ill.

Our Summer ❤

I thought that Id give a more detailed insight to some of the places we have gone to this Summer. Cbeebies Land/Alton Tower We were unsure as to how much Ellie would be able to do at Cbeebies Land as she was just 9 months old but we got very cheap tickets (£11.50 for all… Continue reading Our Summer ❤

Sleep Training…part 2

Thought I would write up an update on where we are. The last few weeks have been awful. Since returning from our break away sleep is been nonexistent for all of us. Ellie refused to nap in the day and was waking up every 2 hours at night. I was seriously losing it. Hubby isnt… Continue reading Sleep Training…part 2

Photographs.

From the day Ellie was born me and my husband decided that we didn't want her pictures plastered all over the internet. This seemed like an easy decision with how horrible the world is and how easily things can be 'shared' to people you don't know and although we've been under a lot of scutiny… Continue reading Photographs.
