So how do you deal with a minor graze that your child becomes obsessed with and won’t stop showing anyone that will look? Cover it up with a plaster of course so that’s what I did but not with any old plaster a tiger faced Dermocare plaster! A plaster is a necessity in any families first aid box, ever since Little Man has been able to walk I always have some in my bag and in the bathroom cabinet just in case. Plasters generally are fairly standard stuff, not very exciting especially to the little people in our lives. Not these… View Post

We need to talk. This relationship thing we have going on, it’s not really working for me. I want to break up. It’s not me, it’s you. You’re a control freak, you completely took over my life, you took from me the first year of being a Mum. You affected me like nothing ever has – that’s not a compliment by the way.

Today is the 26th February 2015. Just another day but to G & I a very special date. On the 26th February 2005 we first met in my University town of Aberystwyth.

Like everyone else says about their wedding day, ours was perfect. No, really it… View Post

Here are 3 more we have been enjoying in the past week.   I Love My Daddy by Giles Andrews – This book has extra special meaning for us as G works away from home a lot. Little Man loves to see what the little boy in the story is doing with his Daddy and likes the fact that some… View Post

This is my most favourite place – Challaborough Bay in Devon. It is a Parkdean caravan park right on the beach and oh my what a beautiful beach it is. I call it my happy place. We first visited Challaborough Bay when I was around 34 weeks pregnant with Little Man. We were looking for a quiet, sunny beach holiday in the UK to spend some time together before our little man arrived. It was the perfect setting for this, the slower pace of life took over and we spent a chilled out week in a beautiful part of the country. We… View Post
