TODAY YOU ARE EIGHT

TODAY YOU ARE EIGHT

Today you are eight. I remember the doctors handing you to daddy. I was in complete and utter shock not only from the rush of the birth and the frenzied run down to theatre but I was in denial that you were mine. All 10lb of […]

TRICK OR TREAT, SMELL MY FEET, CAN I HAVE SOMETHING NICE TO EAT…

TRICK OR TREAT, SMELL MY FEET, CAN I HAVE SOMETHING NICE TO EAT…

When I was younger I was never allowed to go trick or treating. It didn’t bother me as I was never that into it. We used to sit in the dark with the curtains closed tricking the people that knocked, making them believe we were […]

ONE WEEK IN | BACK TO SCHOOL

This time last week I was all prepared for the new school year. Uniforms ironed, lunches made, book bags packed and new school shoes out ready for there first outing wearing in. I am sat here tonight, thinking how quickly that first week went. By […]

AN ICE-CREAM DATE WITH FRIENDS

AN ICE-CREAM DATE WITH FRIENDS

THE FIRST TIME, EVER I SAW YOUR FACE

THE FIRST TIME, EVER I SAW YOUR FACE

THE SILENT VIRUS

THE SILENT VIRUS

Whats worse than a sickness bug? I didn’t think there could be anything worse, but the last two weeks I have, or should I say G and H have battled a virus that has seen their temperatures sky rocket through the roof and has left […]

SURVIVING THE SICKNESS BUG

SURVIVING THE SICKNESS BUG

Its been a while since any of us have been sick. H was ill over Easter but it was nothing like what we have experienced over the last few days. It all started of so well too! Saturday we had a wonderful time at my […]

The Dividing Of The Bedrooms
