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 …

D is for Dancing

There are lots of reasons why I love dancing and non of them are to do with actually knowing how to dance.  I possibly went to one or two dance lessons as a kid because my friend did but I soon hot footed it out the door when I could. …

2018 The Year I Create

It seems that with my move to including Two Tiny Makes on my blog is the move to being more creative.  This blog never had a set destination and although I’ve pretty much always dreamed of being a craft blogger I never really got round to it. Now that the …

The Many Stages of Robot

It was Fiona at Coombe Mill that sparked an interest in creating this blog post.  She has watched, through my blog, the Robot grow into the fun-loving outdoor little boy that he’s become.  It was her comment about him being sat in a back pack, to short walks, to the …

B is for Balloon Painting

We discovered a strange occurrence last year. Balloons!  Every sugar and cake filled toddlers idea of a good time.  Birthday parties for 3 years old are simple.  Put balloons in an empty room.  Put 2 and 3 year olds in said room… shut door and run away! Well not the …

A is for Alphabet 

What better way to start an alphabet challenge than with a post all about Learning the alphabet!!  From a very early age we’ve always read to the Robot and we’re continuing this with CABS.  The Robot really loves his ABC books and we think this has fostered a fascination with …

It’s Been Sunny!

What a brilliant introduction to February… It’s been sunny the past few days of this week and boy does that make the days happier and more joyful to get through.  We even went outside briefly without coats on, shock horror!  It was cold though so it wasn’t for long.  With …

Finding The Sleep Routine

This blog started life as a bit of a rant about sleep.  Without stripping too much of the rant away I wanted to write down where we are at and almost re-evaluate my therapeutic writing process.   Ultimately the rant was about me and my ability to let go, forgetting …

What’s In A Week

Wow this week has flown past! This is another attempt to get myself back into the swing of writing a weekly round-up post in preparation for the #abc123challenge in a couple of weeks time. I guess only my family really read last weeks post because it remains pretty unloved. Given …

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 …
