It’s the school holidays! Woo hoo! For me it doesn’t make too much difference as Alex isn’t yet at school, but working at an after school kids club it does mean I get some extra time to myself and to spend with Alex during the half term break. I feel like there’s only so much… Continue reading Getting Crafty | No Borax Slime
This is a tough post for me to write. Alex’s delivery wasn’t easy and my first 48 hours as a mum were equally as difficult. Before I fell pregnant I was always saying that I was going to have a smooth and plain sailing birth with minimal pain killers and that I was going to… Continue reading Birth Story
It’s everywhere right now. You can’t avoid it. Whether you’re a parent yourself or just know someone who is, then you’ll know that the kids are back at school this week! Parents up and down the UK are jumping for joy as they get some free time again. I get it. 6 weeks is a… Continue reading Back to Work!
New parents, mums in particular, always go on about “the things no one tells you about parenthood/having a baby/etc”.

Of all the things I had thought about doing this Bank Holiday weekend, how I have actually spent it has not been in any of those thoughts. Saturday started with a bit of a pamper session for me as I went out to Cute Tips in Shrewsbury to have my nails done. I had French… Continue reading Not What I Had Planned!
This weekend has seen the Shropshire Kids Festival take over Shrewsbury’s Quarry Park. Me and my boyfriend took our son along to see what was on offer! There was so much to do and not enough time to do it in! Especially because children were getting tired very quickly and needed frequent rests. There were… Continue reading Shropshire Kids Festival
My boyfriend was asking me the other day why I blog, why did I start blogging and what do I get out of it. This really got me thinking. I know why I started this blog. I’ve been blogging for a while but it’s always been in drips and drabs and I have never really… Continue reading Why Do I Blog?
The last few days have been totally hectic. But amazing. Thursday was my baby boy’s first birthday! 5 cakes, 4 parties and 3 days later, he is crawling all around the living room playing with as many of his birthday toys as he can fit in his hands. The ‘go to’ toys seem to be… Continue reading 1st Birthday!
