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

What Little H did – 3.1 years

Balancing

So my lovely, this is the last update I’ll write for you before you become a Big Sister. It’s hard to believe that we’ve reached that point. It also astounds me how much you’ve changed since I first found out that this was going to happen. You’ve gone from being a toddler to a big girl and I couldn’t be more proud of you now and how independent you are. The threenager stage is still kicking in hard, but I

That was the year that was 2017 – a summary

tree

As 2011 reached it’s end, I decided to write an end of year post which reflected back on the highs and lows of the last 12 months. Since then, it has become a personal tradition to write and publish my “That was the year that was” post on 31 December every year. More than anything, this post is a personal opportunity to look back as a year a draws to a close. 2017 has been an eventful year with a

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

What Little H did – 2.1 years

Happy February Little H, Every month my Timehop pings up photos and tweets from the same day in previous years. This month I have now started seeing pictures of you from both last year and the year before. It seems so strange that we’re doing the third time round the calendar together now! Whilst it scares me that you are getting old so fast, I also love that you are so incredibly established in our life now! You’ve tested us

Hurrah – it’s time to go back in the garden again!

Whilst there is nothing stopping me from doing things in the garden throughout the year, let’s face it – from the end of October through until the first signs of spring it’s not that nice out there. I’m not a hermit through the winter. I’m outside all the time and Little H and I love going on walks on our mummy-H days. But going out in the garden is generally a depressing and muddy experience. I don’t want to churn

30 Days Blogging – Day 7: My plans, dreams and goals

30daysblogging7

I’ll confess now that I thought this Blogging Challenge would be quick way of getting some more blog content. But I was wrong. It’s really making me use my brain to answer some of these and looking forward they only get more challenging. Plans, goals and dreams is quite tough. I’ve always had aims but never strict plans. Also, there are a few things which I will always keep private, even from the blogging community. Sorry! However, there are things
