With a husband that works away all week every week routines are the way I get through life especially now I have two children. If I wasn’t organised I’m not sure we would ever get out of the door in time to get Little Man to preschool. I definitely wouldn’t get them to bed at a reasonable hour if we didn’t have a bedtime routine. Little Man has had a decent bedtime routine since he was about 9 months old but when Little Lady came home it all went a bit to pot. I had to fit his bath around… View Post

Welcome to the first post in my NICU Life series. Little Lady spent 9 weeks in NICU (Neonatal Intensive Care Unit). I wanted to read about other Mum’s experiences; I wanted to know if how I was feeling about it all was normal so I thought it only right that I shared my experiences of it too. Little Lady was born one hour into my 29th week of pregnancy weighing just over 3lbs, you can read about why she was born early here. Our 9 week NICU journey was the hardest one of my life so far. There are more steps back than there… View Post

*Trigger Warning* ‘I’m glad it’s not twins!’ A pregnant mama said that to me today in the park. She was relieved that her larger than average bump was only carrying one baby.

She wasn’t to know that just 8 months ago I had delivered beautiful twin girls yet I was only… View Post

I don’t very often buy clothes at full price, especially for the kids. There is always a sale somewhere and two maternity leaves don’t exactly leave you swimming in money. I have always been very impressed with the idea behind Love the Sales. They do all the hard work for you by finding the sales for you! Not only that but they group everything together by type, not just brand. Their website is so easy to use and you really can find some real bargains and hidden gems. At the moment Love the Sales are sharing a huge Converse sale… View Post

***Trigger Warning – Baby Loss*** Grief is an odd concept. We all do it differently. There are no rules, no right and wrong way to cope with it. You have no idea how you will cope until it happens. Some days I feel empty without my third child. I miss her; I miss what she would have been. Other days I feel like I can take on the world for her. It is a journey, sometimes a dark one, sometimes a hopeful one but a journey that is personal. Photo Credit – Alistair Rowan Photography People often tell me that… View Post
