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.

The way Munchkin1 loves her new baby brother is so beautiful to see and truly melts my heart. She's constantly asking to hold him, always going to see and talk to him and even sings to him. And as he has developed over the past 5 weeks, discovering his surroundings and learning to recognise us,… Continue reading Munchkin Love
Why do I want to eat my children? Don't worry I'm not going to, I may have a few screws loose but I'm not crazy! Yet with both of my munchkins I have very sudden urges to just gobble them up whenever I smell their sweet scent. It's stronger with Munchkin2 as he is a… Continue reading Mmm… baby!
Munchkin1 has such a fantastic imagination, I love just sitting to watch and listen to her. I've mentioned her friends the 'Tiny Kittens' in an earlier post, and they are apart of our daily shenanigans at least once a day. They can be very mischievous these kittens! It can take us a while to walk… Continue reading Tiny Kittens
Since becoming a Mummy for the first time 2 and a half years ago I have found there a few items that I use every single day that I now couldn't live without.
