This is the second instalment of #LittleLoves. We’ve had a pretty relaxed week to be honest, I have a uni assignment due soon which I haven’t spent nearly enough time on and Joe’s hours have been all topsy turvy with him doing days instead of nights which has thrown my evening routine out somewhat. I… Read More A Weekly Round Up #LittleLoves – A Lazy one.
We decided (I decided, my husband disagreed with me setting up yet another direct debit) to get National Trust Family Passes last month. My friend has recently got them with her family and I thought it might motivate me to get out and about a bit more if we had passes and ideas for places… Read More Getting National Trust Family Passes
I’m grumpy. Gilmore girls is on, it is 9.24pm on a Tuesday night and Isabelle has only just gone to sleep. The evenings are supposed to be mine dammit. Ugh. So I interviewed for a job on Friday. It was a full time job, which I wasn’t really sure about. The job itself looked great,… Read More Disappointment & Relief.
I haven’t been very active on my blog recently, which is a bit silly considering how much in its infancy it is. The thing is, things have been a bit crazy and I just had to put blogging on the backburner. But whilst we are still in the choppy waters, calm seas are hopefully ahead. We… Read More Standing still on a roundabout.
Next week my baby turns 2. I cannot even explain how quickly that time has gone. I think the last few months have been possibly the hardest since she was born, but equally the most incredible to watch. I can actually have a conversation with her now, a full chat. She asks questions, she answers… Read More Tears in Sainsburys.

I already feel like I have forgotten somethings, especially from when she was tiny. She used to… Read More I hope we remember.
Whenever my kid is having a particularly ‘difficult’ week, I make muffins. Depending on who is grumpier I make either savoury or sweet. This week, I was grumpy and so chocolate peanut butter muffins it was. There are 2 whole bananas in these and they are not too bad in terms of ingredients either so… Read More Tricking a fussy toddler: The Muffin.
How do you deal with frustration? I am definitely doing it wrong. Take yesterday for example, Isabelle fell asleep in the car for about ten seconds as we were on our way home from getting Joe’s hair cut (don’t ask why we all went, we just always do). Naturally, as it was nap time and… Read More Frustration.
Ok, so I have only had one child so I am by no means any kind of expert at Parenting. However, there are a few things that have quite literally saved my sanity over the past two years, so I thought I would share them. You may already know some or all of these or… Read More Life changers.
Do you ever find really random stuff in really random places? My toddler is almost 2 and here are my top weird findings: IN MY BRA (an end of the day discovery) Tiny little pom poms A mini George Pig figurine A Pipe Cleaner Tiny elastic hair bands Crumbs (miscellaneous) IN MY TODDLERS BED (if… Read More If she loves it, she sleeps with it.
