Yesterday I felt myself and Little Man needed to get out of the house, I have Mondays and Tuesdays at home with Little Man and we had stayed in all day Monday. We have a park on our estate and I decided we would walk there. One problem, it was cold, freezing in fact and Little Man has recently decided he is allergic to wearing hats, wellies and gloves so the prospect of getting him ready for our walk did not fill me with glee.

I have wanted to be a Mummy since I can remember, I loved having a career but in my heart of hearts having a family of my own was the most important thing to me.

Yesterday we went to Matalan to have a little mooch around. I absolutely love their kids ranges, lovely clothes at reasonable prices! I got 3 things for Little Man and here they are. Cable Knit Jumper – I love cable knit on toddlers, think it looks so cute and this green really suits Little Man. I don’t have a picture of this because it’s in his room and he is sleeping but you can find it here http://www.matalan.co.uk/kids-clothing/boys/shop-by-age/toddler-3mnths-5yrs/tops/s2578063/boys-cable-knitted-jumper-3mths-5yrs Blue Patterned Shirt – We have a birthday meal to go to next week and all of Little Man’s smart clothes no longer fit so… View Post
