Confessions of a Secret Eater

Good news was certainly not expected as I stepped onto the scales in Boots on Monday morning. As discussed in Can I do the other five? I had started to think fighting the flab was a losing battle. But it just goes to show how negative thoughts can become utterly convincing truths, despite that not being the…

Can I do the other five?

Well I hold my hands up; bloody hell I’m relieved it’s Saturday. Five whole days with a 2 and 3 year old ALL day has near dun’ me in. Yes I know I should consider myself lucky, I have two beautiful children, and I do, I really do. I love them with all my heart…

Boy oh Boy!

The little Prince has finally arrived and my goodness you couldn’t have missed it if you tried! I must admit I was keen to hear the news and get a glimpse but “we still haven’t got a name yet” by every reporter on every channel every five minutes was ridiculous. I am more interested in…

The F Word…

You could hear a pin drop right now – I’m enjoying some Saturday afternoon peace whilst all the boys have gone to the park. It has been a relaxing morning too despite a 5:45am start; leisurely breakfast, excited car washing (a must-do activity for any little person), a bit of Peter Rabbit and  – the…

Another planet

Evening, Late one tonight, I have been watching two programmes that really took all my attention. The first was the Great British Budget Menu highlighting the issue of food poverty. I was so shocked to see a pensioner rationing a packet of soup – half for his lunch and the other half for his dinner. Another…

The Summer I’d Like To Forget

Hi, Middle of the week again already, summer holidays fast approaching, which means one thing – the panic is setting in about how to keep the boys happy and myself sane over the coming weeks! Plans are afoot, they have to be, it’s how I operate. In his wedding speech, my husband even informed everyone…

Watering Can Envy

The end of a long hot weekend, enjoyably spent at home in the garden, with the boys splashing around in the paddling pool, and my husband and I taking it in turns to be on playground duty. My youngest demonstrated his inheritance of the ‘wind-up merchant’ gene from his father by running off with the…

Crunchie Day!

Happy Friday! Finally the temperatures are rising and the grey clouds have disappeared to make way for a sunny weekend! I for one, am glad this week is almost over, it’s been a tough one. My back pain reached a whole new level and I really struggled to bear it. However, repairs are underway at…

Quickie

Evening all! Longest gap between blog posts but don’t worry my eye isn’t off the ball! In view of my long tale in my last post, you’ll be relieved to know this will be a quickie! The weather is currently a pile of poo but don’t worry this is tomorrow (possibly): Mmmm lovely! Onto cards!…
