The Easter Holidays are coming to an end and I feel a bit sad. If I was writing about the last Half Term we had in February I would be absolutely ECSTATIC and celebrating the fact school was starting again on Monday. I only work part-time but I had the whole week off with Lucas… Continue reading What we got up to during the Easter Holidays
I have always absolutely loved visiting Weymouth Sea Life Adventure Park. Living in Dorset, it's only a forty minute drive away for us and I have so many happy memories there as a child. I think I even went there on a first date once (lol!) and now I have my own family we still… Continue reading Review: ‘Caribbean Cove’ at Weymouth Sea Life Adventure Park
‘Family – where life begins and love never ends.’
I still remember clear as day, my Nan looking over to the wall sticker quote I put up in my dining area, shaking her head and saying ”Oh Rox. Ironic hey..” She had popped in to see me shortly after my partner walked out and I think I laughed. Well… what else can you do?!
When I brought my children into this world I never for one minute imagined I would become a single mother. My parents were together growing up, it was the norm to me and I believed my little family was for life. But as we learn, life doesn’t always go the way you would like and you never know what’s round the corner.
Dealing with a break up is difficult at the best of times, but even harder when you have ahyper, sensitive 3 year old, a…

It was just after I turned 25 when I received the letter asking me to book my first smear test. At that time I was expecting Ava and understood you couldn't have one while pregnant so I tossed the letter away and didn't think much more of it. I got a second letter shortly after… Continue reading How I learnt the hard way NOT to delay a smear test
Lucas, Ava and myself were tagged by the lovely Hannah to answer some questions for the #littleonetag. I had so much fun asking them both the questions and have written their exact replies below, please bear in mind Ava is only 2 so her answers are pretty random. What’s the best thing about being 5 and 2… Continue reading The Little One Tag
I have been tagged by the lovely Robyn from coldcuppaclub.com to complete 'The (Not Big or Fat) Quiz of The Year'. Here we go! What was the highlight of 2016? Although I said 2016 was a bit tough, it also brought some wonderful moments for myself and my family. I can't possibly pick just one so… Continue reading The (not big or Fat) Quiz of The year
Happy New Year everyone! We have survived and escaped 2016 (an odd year, I don't want to say completely awful, but really not the best for most people) and have entered the wonderful new beginnings of 2017. I used to absolutely cringe at people's 'new years resolutions' and 'new year, new me' crap, but for… Continue reading New Year New Me?
So here I was... Expecting our much wanted second baby, but FREAKING out. I was drained from horrific morning sickness (morning, day and night sickness more bloody like!) and I was emotional, hormonal and confused. Why did I feel so scared? As I've spoken about in previous blogs, I loved being a Mum to Lucas… Continue reading The transition of One child to Two.
After weeks of feeling flat as a pancake and generally a bit 'meh', I woke up this morning and was determined to have a good day. Sometimes, when life get's too much I find myself becoming easily overwhelmed and unmotivated. Most people pull themselves out of a funk by socialising and staying busy. I can… Continue reading Recharging my batteries
