What do Bloggers do when the Internet fails?

Just as I am getting into the swing of being a blogger, enjoying it and having it take over my life in a happy way my first stumbling block hits me!  The Internet is not working!  Our phone line is dead! It’s the most frustrating thing that has happened to …

Bin men on strike!

It would please me immensely if the bin min were on actual strike, they would be trying to get better wages or better working conditions.  A purpose.  Two doors down and three doors up, they are getting their bins emptied.  It’s the four houses in the middle that are suddenly …

People discuss their babies sleep patterns all the time! Especially if they’re rubbish and wake a lot. I however have had it quite easy, The Robot has always slept well, yes he does wake up, normally once sometimes not. It’s been quite good and I don’t like to rub it …

The Importance of Reading to your Child

I love reading, I’ve always been a bookworm.  I struggle at the moment to fit a book in, I find this hard.  I am channelling this frustration into reading with the Robot.  He was a few weeks old when we popped into the local library and got his first library …

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 …

Who knew! Mothers Day and more

While pondering my blog and working on schedules and post ideas I decided, for hopefully my sanity, that I wouldn’t post on a Sunday.  Why a Sunday, I’m not religious it’s certainly nothing to do with church! It’s not even to do with work loads or house work. Sunday is …

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 …
