Cereal Sensory Play Tuff Spot

Another week and another messy play idea with our new tuff spot; cereal sensory play.  We’ve been going to the same play group since the Robot was 3 weeks old, we started out in baby massage and then moved up into Little Treasures which is now Time to Play.  Every …

Happy Days #36 – Getting Organised

Part way through the week I suddenly panicked that I hadn’t been writing down anything that made me happy.  In fact my usual to do lists have been going out of the window.  My underlying levels of stress creeping in and worry about how much there is left to get …

A Q&A Blogger Tag

Helena from Queen of Collage gave me a question and answer blogger tag the other day.  I don’t normally do these kind of tags but I really liked her questions so I figured why not!  It’s only a bit of fun after all.  I first met Helena through a variety …

Happy Days #35 – Happiness Must Prevail

Welcome to my Happy Days blog. Today is a bumper edition as I took last week off, so I’m bringing you a fortnight worth of happy!  This last week though hasn’t been the happiest of weeks, some would say a massive nightmare.  I am wishing all my friends over the …

An Invitation to Play

It occurs to me every now and then that I really don’t know what I am doing! Every day is a learning activity for me and the Robot.  That’s what parenting is all about, isn’t it? Pinterest is one of my favourite places to play on-line. There is always so …

November Bucket List

The idea of writing a Bucket List is one that I love the idea of but last month I changed all that!  I’m publishing a small list of random goals each month in a hope that I’ll do them.   I have lots of lists but it normally is blogging related.  …

Mess Free Finger Painting

Mess Free Finger Painting If you saw my blog last week you’ll have read about my disastrous attempt at painting with the Robot.  If you’ve been reading my blog a while, I have many attempts at painting with him.  I live in hope that he’ll one day love to paint …

Happy Days #34 – A Day Early

Finding the happiness in every day. I’m writing this a day early and scheduling to go live as I’m off to visit my friend on Friday and I really just won’t get chance to write this if I don’t do it now! I LOVE the ability to schedule! Sorry Dad, …

Being a Stay at Home Mum – A Few Months On

A couple of weeks ago I shared that I’m blogging now and that one day a week I’ll be pursuing avenues of work while Dave does childcare.  I really do still consider myself to be a Stay at Home Mum.  Six days out of seven is okay isn’t it!? My …

How to Make Your Own Mummy Clique

How to Make Your Own Mummy Clique One thing I read and hear time and time again is about the impenetrable Mummy Clique.  That allusive group of Mummy’s who all seem to know each other.  The group of people who seem to have it all sorted.  The Super Women who …

Edible Paint with a One Year Old – How Not To!

I’m pretty determined that the Robot will enjoy painting! This is not the first time I have tried edible paint with him. It’s not going to be the last time either. First time was back in April when I made edible paint with cornstarch. It was chaos and not how …

Happy Days #33 – Just Getting on With Life

There are some weeks that just seem to fly by.  I’ve been really busy this week but yet I haven’t at the same time! That is why I’ve titled this post as “Just Getting on With Life”. Finding all the little happy moments in life is something I really cherish …

Happy Days #32 – Started with a Sick Bug

We started our week with a sick bug.  It meant that pretty much the whole weekend and Monday Dave, I and the Robot just went into survival mode.  There are very few happy moments to draw from but I am eternally grateful that Dave was able to look after the …
