A Sad Day…

A Sad Day…

Today I’ve lost several things… 1. My sister in law… She moves today, uprooting her family to be closer to childcare which only makes sense, but I don’t want her to go as now I don’t have the garden to pinch every summer like I […]

Winter Warmers…

Winter Warmers…

The best thing about winter is big hearted comfort food! I love one pot wonders… I love to just sling everything in one pot shove it in the oven and forget about till tea time! Its the best way to cook in the winter! Sometimes […]

Its Amazing How Different Children Are…

Its Amazing How Different Children Are…

Moo Moo in my eyes is a clever little girl! She has a memory of a sponge and can tell me things that happened 2 years ago, which sometimes stops me in my tracks and worries the hell out of me but when I sit and think about it, most of the time she is bloody right! For a 4 year old I think thats pretty damn amazing! Thor is a completely different child, but Im always being told

“Boys are different”

Thor doesn’t talk much, over the last few days though I have noticed he has learnt a fair amount of new words! Baba, Cars, Keys, Bat Man is a new favourite! Β He already knows the basics.. Ta, Mama, Dada, he points too at a lot of things and makes a grunting noise, which I am trying to get into a habit of saying the item he is pointing to..

“you want your JUICE, do you?”

Moo on the other hand could string a whole sentence together by now, in fact, we could not shut her up! from the moment she started talking that was it, she just never stopped! Β Im not bothered by Thor’s lack of interest in speech, he manages well, and he does speak when he wants too, and is learning new words but I just find it amazing how different children are.

A New Lease Of Life…!

A New Lease Of Life…!

In the summer we re-potted our orchid. This orchid was bought for us when we moved in to our flat 5 years ago. We were very nervous about re-potting it we didn’t want to kill it as it had bloomed so well every year and […]

Once You’ve Learned The Basics….

So I have given crochet a go! I have to be honest I have not put my all into though, I am waiting patiently for santa. I have asked for a book from my mum to help me along the way so I really want […]

Norovirus Strikes Again…

Norovirus Strikes Again…

As we are on the subject of illness…. Why not continue? A couple of weeks ago we were all struck down with the winter vomiting bug (bar me). What with Moo Moo coughing last night I heard Thor, cry out, I thought it was a nightmare, and it was just the once, so I left him, I heard nothing more from him. He woke this morning, to me finding him in a pool of his own vomit! nice! So him crying out, me thinking it was a nightmare was in fact him being sick! bad mummy alert…(mind you this isn’t the first time he has done this!!) Β I feel quiet bad, he looks pretty darn rough this morning, and he certainly isn’t his normal happy chappy self! I am hoping is goes as quickly as it came!

The Winter Cough Is Back…

The Winter Cough Is Back…

I hate winter, purely for this reason. Moo suffers terribly with an all round winter cough and it only appears at night time, which is the worst time to appear for all parents! In the space of two hours I can make at least 10 […]

Nightmares…

Nightmares…

Moo Moo woke in the early hours Tuesday in a bit of a state, I did wonder if she was going to go back to sleep. She was a bit delirious and was really distressed. She managed to tell me she had a bad dream […]

The Decision Is Made…

The Decision Is Made…

Its been a stressful few weeks in deciding, but this time next week Moo Moo’s school admissions pack will be sent off! I went to look at the last school this morning and I have made my mind up on my first, second, third and forth choice… I now just have to forget about it and wait till April till I find out which school she gets!
