Lots of Love this Week #abc123challenge

Normally I get to the end of the week and I feel really deflated and struggle to start these posts off with the enthusiasm it needs to get me going.  This week however I have loved.  Everything has just felt right.  Like it was meant to be.  I have loved …

It’s Definitely Spring 

The Letter I for a title today, it’s a bit of a cheat word for this weeks abc123challenge round-up.  We’re not as organised this week either. My best friend came to visit us on Friday so I’ve not had the usual time to write.  I’m sat in a cafe with …

Fun and Fast #ABC123Challenge

It’s Friday when I normally try write-up my round-ups. The perfect day for a letter F.  As usual the week has flown by faster than ever. We’ve had plenty of fun but I clicked my neck one morning half way through the week so I’ve had a not so pleasant …

Baby Toy Carrier

Baby Toy Carrier It’s been something that I’ve wanted to make the Robot for so long now.  As an avid baby wearer I always carried the Robot and now he can walk he often wants to copy what he sees around him. His Mummy carrying his baby sister!  It took …

Encouragingly Excited #ABC123Challenge

These weeks do just keep flying by.  We’re in the midst of March now and baby CABS turned 4 months old.  It’s crazy but I am trying to enjoy every minute of it.  Dave has just taken the Robot out on the back of my bike for a ride out …

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.

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 …

A Letter To The Lady I Shouted At In The Street

Dear Lady I Shouted At In The Street, This letter is for you, you asked me if I needed help and I forcibly shouted at you saying “No, please leave me alone.” Well I can’t really remember exactly what I said but I know I shouted sorry as you walked …

To My Two Year Old 

It occurred to me last week that my little Robot will be my two years old very soon and that I should probably get a bit of a wriggle on and put some thought into your birthday blog.  Last year you got 52 reasons for loving you and boy do …

Fathers Day Fun

When Fathers Day rolls round I don’t tend to think much of it. Maybe because I don’t quite get to see much of my Dad or maybe it just feels like another day. Today though on Dave’s 2nd Father’s Day I’ve been thinking a bit differently. We always go on …

It’s Always When I’m Tired 

As I’m sat cuddling my dear Robot to sleep I am thinking about the day I’ve had and the struggles that have ensued. It’s been a day I don’t want to particularly remember that much either. They are few and far between but you know what? It’s always when I’m …
