What Little H did – 2.6 years

LondonZoo

Hola Little H, This month has seen you back to your normal self. You are slightly more clingy to me than you used to be, but after your upset at nursery you went back to happily going in just as quickly. It was a real relief and Daddy and I don’t like it when you’re unsettled. You’re speech has cranked up another notch and you’re interest in things like schedules, routine and days of the week is growing day-on-day. It’s

The end of napping, toddler struggles and remembering this is my blog

RecooperationPlay

It’s been ages since I wrote a blog post. My mind has just been elsewhere and I have found parts of the last couple of weeks quite tough. One of the last times I wrote Little H had been unwell. She got over her fever and seemed to be recovered. But we sent her back to nursery and she struggled. She cried when I left for work, she cried when Sam dropped her at nursery. By day 2 she had

What Little H did – 2.5 years

Little H, Every month I am astounded by how you develop and grow. This month is no exception! I really cannot believe you aren’t even two and a half yet! You’ve done so much this month including a lot of growing and developing. The end of the month has been a little tough though as you got a horrible virus which has thrown you off a bit. After several nights with a high fever, you were then really unsettled in

What Little H did – 2.4 years

Little H, we’ve had an awesome month doing on lots of fun activities. You have astounded me yet again by developing every day. I swear you spend more time telling me what to do than the other way round! You’ve also been testing me again so mummy has had to develop her ‘Patience’ super strength even further. But I have loved every minute of it. Well, almost 😉

Reasons I am grateful #5

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 #12

mytoptenonlinereads

I’m a litle late with this month’s installment due to a loss of ‘blogging mojo‘. I almost abandoned it but these posts are so awesome that I wanted to share them. So, 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

When I had no desire to blog

BloggingTime

The last few days everything that has happened over the last month suddenly hit me. The turbulant times at work, some stresses at home and, on top of that, some random virus (giving me stomach cramps, diziness and headaches) saw me smash into an emotional and physical brick wall. I wasn’t motivated to do anything more than the mundane at work. I ticked off all the core chores at home but nothing more. I skipped any exercise plans and then

Whipsnade Zoo – an awesome animal experience!

As a young child, my family and I lived in Berkshire (we moved back to my native homeground in The North when I was 12). One of my favourite treat outings as a kid was to Whipsnade Zoo. I have such fond memories of seeing all of the animals there. So you can imagine my delight when almost two decades later I discovered it was only a 40 minute drive from where we live in Hertfordshire. And now I’m a

Five Favourite Finds #12

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
