Saturday Shine

I’ve often got draft blog posts sat half written in the depths of my hidden blog.  This one was entitled Do You Walk a Mile? The answer is no.  In the spirit of new year I planned to make sure me and my very littles got outside and walked at …

Looking For The Moon

Looking for the moon had become one of my favourite activities to do with the Robot.  Every time we need a bit of fresh air we put on our coats and head outside to look for the daytime moon.  The best bit is that now baby Sister is here we …

The ABC123 Challenge 

Welcome to the ABC123 Challenge. This is not new to me, back in 2016 I gave this a go as a way to find my writing voice and get into the swing of creating regular blog posts.  3 blogs a week, each week a different letter of the alphabet.  It …

Home Birth – The Perks

Well I left you rather abruptly at the end of the home birth of baby CABS. The rest of my story is here. You always forget about the last stage of labour.

Getting Out

A moment of clarity…  It took till Boxing Day to realise that we were stuck in a bit of a newborn/pregnancy rut. Where getting out was too much like hard work and when we did do the getting out we just did the same old stuff.  Going to the park …

CABS – A Home Birth Story

Time has a habit of distorting memories and I think with birth stories this is a good thing.  Not that I had particularly difficult birth that I want to mask I just wanted to wait before I started tapping out something so special and personal to me. As with the …

December 2017 Change is in the Air

As December 2017 and the year begins to close it puts me in a very reflective mood. Also an excited one as to the prospects of what the new year is going to bring.  Planning, plotting and basically thinking I can take on the world!  A change is in the …

Winter Snow Christmas Sensory Box

When I received some happy mail last month with the little foam package material in, I didn’t get disheartened by the mess opening it created. I turned it into opportunity by creating a Winter Snow Christmas Sensory Box.  What FUN! Squirreling the bits away into a box for a few …

Happy Days November 2017

It’s that time of the month when I take a look back at the happy days moments from the last month just gone.  Something I used to endeavour to do weekly has become a manageable monthly occurrence. Life has a habit of showing you the hard, and downright lows, especially …

Surviving A Long Train Journey With A Toddler – NO SCREENS!

We’re seasoned train travellers with our little Robot son. He’s 2 and while most our journeys are less than an hour we have destination south coast in our sights. Visiting Family that live across country with a fun-filled 7 hour train journey. Yikes.

With Christmas round the corner quite a lot of people will be considering catching the train to visit family. I figured it would be a good time to share with you a trip I made solo with my toddler back in the Summer. I was a tad daunted to say the least but knew we’d be okay.

Hello Baby Girl

This is just a quick short post to tell the TwoTinyHands world that the new edition to our family arrived here on Tuesday and we are all doing well. Meet my baby girl Chloe with all the family: Obviously I’m going to give her a blog name soon, it wouldn’t …

Baby Wearing – My New Bag!

Baby Wearing – My New Bag! Ever since the Robot was 3 days old I’ve carried him, in slings, wraps, carriers, buckles, whatever you want to call them I’ve done it.  I love the closeness of baby wearing and the bond we’ve shared. This post is a sort of carry …

Happy Days October 2017

The purpose of this post is to concentrate on all the happy things that have happened over the month. We’ve certainly had some happy moments but being heavily pregnant is starting to take its toll on how happy I can actually feel. I ache now, moving is slow, parent/friend support is spread very thin, poor Dave is juggling work and waiting for that moment I go “I’m in labour”. As of the 29th it’s not yet! I can’t wait… Let’s take a look at some of the happy moments of the past month.
