What Little H did – 2.0 years

teddy

My darling little H, Happy Birthday my lovely! You’re 2 years old. How can you be 2 years old already? I so vividly remember you arriving. Of being with you that first night in hospital and wondering what on earth I had to do. But now it’s so normal you being here. It’s so normal looking after you. I can of course remember life before you were here…but I can’t remember how it felt full. You’ve tested me with your

30 Days Blogging – Day 13: TV shows I’ll happily get square eyes for!

30DaysBlogging13

My-oh-my, I’ve watched some terrible TV programmes over the years. But, as with anything, it takes practice to become an expert at something. Learning select top telly viewage is no different. Haha! Of course, everything is subjective so if you ask Sam his opinion on some of these, I’m sure he’ll scoff. Time is in short supply now I’m the mum of a small though, so if I’m going to find the time to plonk my bottom on the sofa

Reasons I am grateful #1

I have kept a Gratitude Journal since the start of 2016. Over that year it made a MASSIVE difference to my mental attitude; I now more naturally see the positive in things. My blog is a place to share thoughts and opinions. But more than that, it’s a place I record life so I can look back in the future and remember how things were. Whilst I will always have my private journals, I also decided to take a leaf

In the bleak mid-winter…

So Christmas is done. We’re in the New Year. I can confidently say autumn feels like a life-time ago. I can’t be the only one thinking that winter is most definitely here! Everytime I think winter is being kind to us compared to previous years, we get hit by cold snap. As I write this (potentially a week or so before I actually share it!) I am sheltering inside after going out into one of the bitterest mornings so far;

Welcome to my monthly feature in which I share some of my favourite online articles for the month. I read a lot of blog posts and articles online and whilst I share a lot of them through tweets, it’s easy to miss them and hard to come back to them at another time. This is a list of my top ten reads for the month, a mixture of formal news articles and blog posts. Enjoy!

Rocking Motherhood

SalmonRisotto

Just before Christmas, the awesome Josefine from My Danglish Family tagged me to take part in White Camelia’s ‘Rocking Motherhood Tag’. Not only was I excited to be tagged but I was also excited to do something which made me think about all the great stuff I do. As Josefine mentions in her post (which is fantastic so do go and read it once you’ve read mine!), it’s really easy for mums to focus on the things they feel they

Five Favourite Finds #8

Every month I share my ‘Five Favourite Finds’ for the month. They can be absolutely anything new that I have come across. The challenge: making sure I find five each month. Some months really do prove tougher than others but there is lots of fun had in the search. I’m using it to try encourage myself to find new things and also share my finds with you all to save you the leg work! So without further ado and in

What would you do with an hour?

An hour. Sixty Minutes. Three thousand-six hundred seconds. A period of time which can go by in the flash of an eye, or can feel like a luxurious eternity. My appreciation of the humble hour has increased dramatically since becoming a parent. I have always been someone who endeavours to use time as efficiently as possible – to the extent where sometimes I have to be told to stop and switch-off for a bit. But children have a wonderful way
