When the door closes

Nobody gives you a handbook to your child when they are born.  There are countless books, websites and forums available to help. Even family to put their two penny in. It’s become very clear to me that every child is different and every mothers experience is just as different. I …

Tribal Matters

Twitter has always been my favourite social media platform. It’s just got even better!  The lovely Katie of Mummy in a Tutu has opened my eyes to Twitter hours! I’ve seen them been advertised on and off for years and always wondered what was going on? What’s the point? This …

Weather Watching 

The outdoors is my friend!  If I could spend all day outside I probably would.  Spring is fast approaching us, and we’ve been getting some really nice sunny Winter days, its giving me hope, hope that me and the Robot can go on more adventures very soon. Now I could …

Mother’s Day treats?

We had a mini break this weekend. I really do like going away but boy can it be stressful! I left you Saturday afternoon about to go away for the night to Earby YHA.  Packing was quick and for one night away I felt like I packed for a fortnight.  …

Shoes off rule

Our neighbours are dog owners, not the most conscientious ones either.  Our town seems to have a lot of dog owners too, not very conscientious.   We’ve lived in this house 2 years now and we’ve hit double figures on how many times there has been dog do on or very …

Airplanes Also known as the Superman game.  Laying on your back with your knees bent up, lay your little one on your shins and let them fly by moving your legs around.  This one is great for your core stomach muscles too, get toning! Robot loves this game, especially now …

So Much Doubt

Why do we worry?  More importantly, why do I worry?   It is something that has plagued my life, I worry, but I carry on with a smile on my face and a can do attitude.  It doesn’t mean I don’t lie awake freting about why the man down the road …
