What Little H did – 3.6 years

Hola Little H! I read something earlier this month about “Threenagers” always getting bad press but how, in reality, it’s actually a really fun and hilarious age. It made me sit back and realise how the anger and tantrums have subsided a bit now and, when they do happen, how I’ve got much better at dealing with them (or ignoring them completely until you regulate your own mood, which you are getting much better at!). The majority of the time

What Little H did – 3.5 years

AwesomeOutfit

Oh H, you are getting smarter, funnier and more argumentative by the day. But there is so much going on I find myself laughing or in awe at what you do only to forget too minutes later. This list would be so much longer if my brain didn’t keep leaking memories! You’re really making us laugh now though. And you can be really helpful too – bringing things, picking things up. Often without being asked as well. But if we

What Little H did – 3.4 years

HappySisters

At times this month you’ve been an enigma to me my (not so) little one. You’re mine is developing at such a pace now that your astonish me with the things that come out of your mouth. You make some really insightful and mature observations about things. Your mastery of the English language also continues to grow no end. We’ve found this comes at a price though as you are very stubborn at the moment. Every bath time has become

What Little H did – 3.3 years

Pigtails

Wow Little H, it’s been a hectic month but you have been on top form! You’ve tested us with a few tantrums but for the most part you have been hilarious! In fact, you’ve been so funny that I’ve not managed to capture even half of the hilarious things you’ve done. You had a virus in the middle of the month which was a shame, but you fought it off really quickly. Little Z has been lucky to have lots

Reasons I am grateful #6

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

My Top 10 Online Reads #11

mytoptenonlinereads

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!

Blogger Recognition Award

So I was delighted to see a tweet from the lovely Lucy at Home earlier this week, nominating me for The Blogger Recognition Award. I love Lucy’s blog and I am a huge fan of the new linky she runs with Wendy from Naptime Natter – #BlogCrush. I was really excited to be nominated and that Lucy thought of me when compiling her list of nominations! A massive thank you to you Lucy for the nomination and for reading the

Can I have it all or has something got to give?

It’s February 2016 and I’ve been back at work after Maternity Leave for about three weeks. One of the female managers who I don’t really know asks me how I’m getting on. I’m honest and say it’s good to be back but it’s a bit of a shock to the system and I’m still finding my way. She nods empathetically and then says to me “Don’t let anyone tell you that you can’t have it all. You can. I’ve never

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, in January 2017 I also decided to

Are we really listening ? 

usflag

I seem to rarely write a blog post spontaneously these days. Yet the events of 8-9 November in the United States have compelled me to do so. Because, quite honestly, I am finding 2016 to be a truly baffling year. I wrote back in July about my sadness over the result of the EU Referendum (or “Brexit” – a term I am frankly sick of!). As we all digested the outcome of our decision on this side of the Atlantic,
