A mother’s guilt

June 23, 2016 admin 1

I write this having just completed a twelve hour shift, my babies are already tucked up in bed after daddy has fed, bathed, played with them and completed the bedtime routine. I saw them briefly in a busy haze this morning as we all frantically prepared for the day, throwing cereal in a bowl for one and helping the other put on his socks, a quick kiss goodbye and that’s it. I wont see them […]

Do all brothers fight?

June 18, 2016 admin 8

I remember a time when my husband and I had the most adorable little boy, with blonde hair and blue eyes and a smile that could light up a room, he got attention everywhere we went. He was a fast developer and a great little companion, although he never, EVER, slept but we looked at him with adoration in our eyes and thought lets give him a baby brother or sister. Lets have another baby, […]

The husband, 300 miles and Stealth gels

April 19, 2016 admin 2

As some of you may know my crazy ass husband is cycling 300 miles in 3 days in September to raise money for Children in Need with a whole load of other crazy ass individuals who all work for Llyods bank (make of that what you will!). Although my OH can ride a bike without stabilisers this will be the biggest event he has ever attempted and it goes without saying that I have every […]

lush - my boys playing with a bath bomb

Thanks to Lady Lush

February 1, 2016 admin 0

In a world where we love to complain, where as a nation we are quick to criticise and as people we love nothing more than having a good whinge I thought it was about time that I stopped to recognise a genuine act of kindness. Last week my family and I went on a trip to Manchester and on our way back to the car with two very tired boys I spotted a Lush shop and chanced […]

Our Christmas sparkle was stolen by Broomheath plantation

December 16, 2015 admin 0

5 weeks ago my family and I took our annual trip to the Broomheath plantation to pick our Christmas tree. It was a lovely day spent hunting for the perfect tree to fit in our living room to be tagged ready for us to chop down ourselves in December. On Saturday we went with our two very excited boys (5 and 3) to cut down our tree, take it home and decorate it. Despite the […]

cheshire ice cream farm - an ice cream

Cheshire Ice cream Farm

June 9, 2015 admin 1

On Sunday my husband and I took our two boys (2 & 5) to the Cheshire Ice Cream Farm in Tattenhall. We have visited this place numerous times and I have to say it really does make and sell the most delicious ice cream ever. My personal favourite is the blackcurrant and liquorice, o my gosh it’s so amazing! Anyway, we went this weekend because we had heard that the specials from Cheshire constabulary  would […]

superhero room - bunting and blue walls

Cheap and easy Superhero bedroom ideas

May 18, 2015 admin 2

I have two boys, one is five and superhero mad, the other is two and loves what ever his big brother tells him to love, so at the moment he’s also superhero mad! So, when I asked my 5 year old how he wanted his room decorating he immediately asked for a superhero themed room. Personally I am not one for over decorated rooms. I hate themed wall paper and everything matching. One reason is […]
