This time last year we had a just turned 2 year-old and were excited to meet our new little Munchkin in a few months time. This time we're entering the New Year with a just turned 3 year-old cheeky little Madam, a 7 month-old happy, grabs anything in sight little man, and looking forward to… Continue reading Happy New Year!
So this morning as I sat down to give Munchkin2 his morning feed, I checked my phone to find I had a notification on Twitter. This turned out to be a nomination for a Blogger Recognition Award from the lovely Sue at Mama Mia. It was such a lovely surprise and I'm delighted to accept… Continue reading Blogger Recognition Award
Oh wow have I got some good ones for you this time! Munchkin1 never fails to crack me up, and some of the things she has been coming out with have been brilliant. In fact, she had just said one to me a moment ago when in the shower... "I have beautiful hair Mummy!" "You… Continue reading Munchkin says… #3
Yes! We actually managed to have a good night's sleep in the super comfortable Premier Inn beds! Munchkin2 woke up for his feed at 4am, and other than waking to use the toilet at about midnight, Munchkin1 slept until just before 6am. Breakfast opened at 7am so we were there with rumbling tummies as soon… Continue reading Chester! Our mini holiday – Day 3
Our second day basically started at 2am when Munchkin1 woke up saying she was wet.

We gave… Continue reading Chester Zoo! Our mini holiday – Day 2
Our mini holiday this year was to Chester for 2 nights. On the way we visited Eureka Children's Museum, here's what we got up to on Day 1 of our trip.
I've been quiet for a while haven't I! A lot has been happening the past few weeks, and whilst they've mostly been good things it has still been quite a lot for my anxious mind to cope with. I should have written it all down on here to help get some of it off my… Continue reading Where have I been?
Munchkin1 baked some buns yesterday (with supervision from myself obviously) so here is her step by step guide. Chocolate Chip Buns Mummy weighs out the butter and softens it slightly in the microwave, then she weighs the sugar. Pour the butter into the bowl with the sugar and mash it together with a big wooden… Continue reading Baking with the Munchkin
I'm currently sitting on the sofa staring at the beautiful face of my sweet little baby boy as he sleeps after his feed. I daren't put him down just yet for fear of upsetting him again. You see, this morning we have been for his 8 week injections and I feel like such a mean… Continue reading The joy of vaccinations
There are many things that frighten me or make me anxious. Aside from the usual fears/anxieties that come with parenting, I also don't like heights (although if I feel safe I can cope with them), I hate polystyrene (eugh even the thought makes me shiver), I don't like feeling trapped and I'm not particularly keen… Continue reading Facing my fears for my children.
