I'm going from my own experience of gifts I enjoyed or would've liked. 1. Something for her! She hasn't been able to drink … Continue reading Gifts to buy a new Mum
I have reached the age of 30 and I have never been to the Circus until now! So when we were offered the opportunity to go, I jumped at the chance!

I wanted to write this post for anyone contemplating getting a dog when you already have children. We actually got our dog (Dudley) just as I'd fallen pregnant with my first child. He's a complete nutter Sprocker Spaniel which is a Springer crossed with a working cocker. He's 100% mental. There was always the worry … Continue reading The Pros of having a Dog with Children
Today has been one of those days! Usually you'll get maybe one child that plays up but today it was both even though one was at pre school until 3pm! The youngest (10 months) is apparently going through a 'leap' even though I've never really agreed with all the wonder weeks stuff as all children … Continue reading Winge winge wine
As the first of my friends to have children I wanted to write about the whole 'life plan'. So many of my friends are in long term relationships and have this idea that they're going to buy a house, get married then have children.
