Boys have Body Issues Too

1st January 2017

Of more than 1,000 eight- to 18-year-old boys polled, 55% would consider changing their diet to look better and 23% said they believed there was a perfect male body. (As per the BBC Article)
8 years old and would consider a diet! At 8 years old you’re a child! Your biggest concern should be when you can go out on your bike next, not what diet to go on.

Will you be setting any New Year Resolutions?

New Years Eve; Last Date Night of the Year

29th December 2016

New Years Eve is just not my thing.
Not any more anyway. I can think of nothing I would enjoy less than getting ready for a night out to spend it shouting over loud music, getting drunk and then spend the next week recovering. Yes, I’m a boring old git but hey, I embrace it!

Another Crazy Christmas

26th December 2016

I love Christmas. I love the buzz and excitement but by the time we hit the end of Boxing Day I long for a bit of normality!

I’m always grateful that we go to Sam’s parents for lunch and then to my parents in the evening; no cooking or food preparation makes the run up to Christmas pretty much stress free

Losing My Grandad – A Year On

21st December 2016

I sit here looking at the title of this post and wonder if I am ready to talk about the up and coming anniversary of the death of my wonderful Grandad.
In truth, no I’m probably not, but I want to.
I want to remember one of the most important men in my life and share how his passing made me feel and know that it is OK to miss him.

Post Pregnancy – The Bits No-One Tell You.

19th December 2016

I’m now at almost four months post pregnancy and my hormones have dropped, with that my hair has started to fall out.
This time round it hasn’t come as a shock, in fact I had been waiting for it to start, however that was a different story when I had Reuben.

Was it that it was only happening to me?

Christmas Traditions

18th December 2016

I am very much a Christmas person, to the point that when Sam and I were dating I insisted he bought a Christmas Tree and said without one I wouldn’t be able to go to his house. So it goes without saying that Christmas is a big deal for me and with Reuben being so excited, this year is the first year that I have felt passionately about starting our own Christmas Traditions.

Just One Bad Day

14th December 2016

Well yesterday was a pretty tough day!

I should have known it was going to be tough when my day started with an explosive nappy and yellow poo all over a lovely white sleep suit, but hey I was optimistic. More fool me!

Jessica is currently teething! Yep, a drooling and very unhappy 3 month old baby right now and to top it off she has been trying to refuse her naps. Not going to happen lady!

Santa at Oxburgh Hall

11th December 2016

In all the years I have lived in the area, I have never been to Oxburgh Hall. Today I discovered that it is a little gem that I have been missing out on.

The plan was to take Reuben to see Santa, then enjoy a bit of a walk around the grounds and the weather was perfect for it.

We arrived early, the website had said Santa was limited and on a first come first serve basis. We were lucky that we only had an hour to wait until we could see the big man himself.

Hello to the Blogging World!

10th December 2016

I wanted to say a hello to the blogging community.

This is my first time blogging and to be honest it is a bit nerve-wracking.

If you have read my About Me page, you will know that I am currently on maternity leave, and whilst I love my children dearly I have started to feel like my life is breast-feeding, playing cars and dusting and so I have decided it is time to do something for me.
