I’m back! 

It’s been a while since my last blog post, it feels strange to be back! I needed a little break as I wasn’t really enjoying it anymore, and it’s pointless doing a half-arsed attempt. No one wants to read that. However, I feel totally ready to share my absolutely gripping life stories with you once…

Am I a Baby Bore?

The time has come to admit it. I’ll finally admit I’m a baby bore. I vowed I never would be but here we are almost three years later and my social media is flooded with photos of my son. In my pre-baby days, I’d actually hate to see other peoples’ kids on my newsfeed. Even…

Haigh Hall Country Park. 

We’ve had a fun filled few days visiting Mama again this weekend. As well as our theatre trip to see Cinderella ballet we visited Haigh Hall country park in Wigan and we all agreed it was a fantastic day out. I usually avoid anything that may attract a large gathering of children on weekends or…

Knowsley Safari Park, Pancakes and Cinderella #LittleLoves

I just cannot believe we’re in March already! Nearly my birfdayyyy. We’ve had some busy weekends these past few weeks; the winter months are so shit we’re trying to have loads of things planned to keep us busy and to look forward to. We visited Knowsley Safari Park last Saturday which we all absolutely loved….

The Dummy’s Got to Go!

Five words I’ve been dreading. “The dummy’s got to go”. I knew it was coming but those five words literally made me feel like the world’s shittest mum in 0-5 seconds. I took M for his second ever dentist appointment recently. He barely even opened his mouth before the dentist told me ‘the dummy’s got to go….

Britain’s Got Talent, Me Time & Anniversary Weekend #LittleLoves

I’ve been a little quiet on the blogging front lately. I’ve just not been feeling it to be honest, sometimes I need a little break from it and I’ve been spending the time matched betting instead. I’ve made almost £400 profit since I started about a month ago so I’m pretty pleased with that. I’m aiming…

What I Wish I’d Known About My Newborn.

Nothing can ever prepare you for having a baby. It’s probably the most life changing thing that you’ll ever experience; I wasn’t naïve, I knew it’d be tough but I really didn’t realise how exhausting and traumatic it would be. You can read all the books you want but until you’ve gone four days with no sleep…

Unicorn Bark, Dance Moms & Winter Thermals #LittleLoves 

I’m feeling sorry for myself this week, I’ve had this cough for weeks and it’s driving me crazy. Why is it always worse at night! On the bright side I’ve had a super productive week; finally finished my tax return (nothing like cutting it fine!), got on top of the appointments I’ve needed to make and listed some more bits on eBay. All the…

Why I Can’t Say No To My Toddler!

I have a real hard time saying no to my son. I know I need to put my foot down a bit more and his dad always reminds me it’s in his best interest to hear no sometimes but it’s my biggest weakness. Just look at that face. If I let him have a biscuit I’ll get…
