I woke up this morning to a pretty terrible news article which has shook me a bit. It is all about my local hospital, the one where I am due to have my baby early next year. In roughly 23 short weeks. I will link it here, though I must admit it pains me to… Read More Hypnobirthing and my plan for this birth.
*I wrote this at the end of last year – just after my miscarriage. It’s quite raw and possibly a little graphic. As you may have seen from my last blog post I am in fact, now pregnant again and I spent the first twelve weeks (and still now if I’m honest) absolutely terrified of another… Read More Expectant Management of a Missed Miscarriage
Hi folks! It’s been a while hasn’t it. Well, it turns out I have a bit of news. Tada! Excuse the PJ’s and mum bun. I am with child. Knocked up. I have a bun in the oven and I am pregnant with baby number 2. I am currently about 15 weeks and to be… Read More How to get a good nights sleep in pregnancy (plus – a cheeky £100 Leesa Mattress discount code!)
We were lucky enough to be invited to try out the new glamping tents a few weeks ago at the Knights Village at Warwick Castle. We have been and stayed in one of their wooden lodges so the Knights Village and the Castle were not new to us, but I had never been glamping before.

I spoke about how challenging I found the Easter break recently, but the big one… the summer holidays is now looming on the horizon. The thought is filling me with panic. I’m not ready. I don’t know how to keep a four year old entertained for 6 weeks straight. I just don’t. Help! I need… Read More Planning for the Summer Holidays
I bloody love a holiday. Of course I do. Who doesn’t? That was a stupid opener – admittedly. We’ve just got back from a week in Cornwall and it was glorious to get away. I thought I would share some of what we got up to whilst we were there, in case it gives anyone… Read More A Dog Friendly Holiday in Cornwall
Isn’t it ironic. A few weeks ago I smugly sat here, merrily writing up a post about how I have all these plans for the Easter break and all the amazing things we were going to do. Week One I absolutely smashed it. I was super mum. We were out every single day, having a… Read More The Easter Holidays Broke Me.
As I mentioned in an earlier post, we were lucky enough to be offered the opportunity to try out the facilities at Jump In for free over the Easter Break, in return for our honest review. I tried my best to fill up the Easter holidays with fun activities so I didn’t go insane due… Read More Jump In – Shrewsbury Review
Does anyone else get ‘The Fear’ when we start to get close to a school holiday? I know that sounds awful, I don’t mean I don’t want to spend time with my daughter I just mean fear over how on earth I am going to entertain her for two weeks straight! So, my plan is… Read More Our Easter Plans

I was just going about my business, living my life when I sat down with the calendar to input a few appointments and I saw the date. The first thing I felt was… Read More Motherless Daughters
