Ah the sick day before kids. It would start with waking up feeling rubbish, realising that in fact the cold I thought I had was more in the realms of flu. I would pick up my phone, call work and roll back over in bed. I would be feeling rubbish, yes but knowing I didn’t have to move from my sick bed was nice. Around 10am I would get up to see how I felt. Maybe I would venture downstairs for a drink, some meds and to raid the snack cupboard. Realising that This Morning was just about to start… View Post

This isn’t my normal type of post. I keep my ranting to myself because frankly I’m sweary and not very pretty when I do it but a couple of things have happened this week that have spurred me on to write this post.

We went out on Saturday night without the kids. This is something that happens only a few times a year.

There was good food, good company and although admittedly I was flagging by 10pm I really… View Post

If you have clicked on this I would imagine it more out of curiosity than anything else. Is going for a coffee on your own really a big deal?

I sat in a garden centre cafe with my baby and my drink happy as larry for all of five minutes. What followed was a screaming baby, me feeling like everyone was looking at me and £3.50 of hot chocolate being wasted… View Post

As I am starting a new year on this blog I thought I would have a little look back at the 5 most read posts of 2017. Last year my blog took a massive turn in terms of content. This was a natural change for me because my life had changed so much in the second half of 2016. The most read posts really do reflect this and I am so very glad they are reaching people that need to read them. So here are the most read posts on Mummy in Training of 2017.   5 – The Moment… View Post
