For the last 5 years I have been a stay at home mum. Mummy to two little people, later three. At home I am in my little bubble. I struggle from time to time as we all do. I spend my days with three people less than 3ft tall, lacking in adult conversation and always wondering whether I’m doing the right thing. That said I feel confident in my role as Mummy – I know that ultimately I am doing my best for them, and hopefully shaping them into the wonderful adults they will become. I found it hard for…

Since I started ‘seriously’ blogging at the beginning of this year, I’ve always attempted to upload content at least three times a week. I even managed this throughout the summer holidays, despite having three kids to entertain 24/7.

After three labours I think by the time I had…

It teaches them a bit of responsibility, and takes the pressure off of you if anything if forgotten. If you have a younger child who still uses a travel cot, I highly recommend one of these travel cot…

I adore my kids. They are my absolute world. The only thing is, as they’ve got older, I find more and more that I find them in situations where I end up muttering ‘F**k my life’ to myself, some days on an hourly basis. Obviously this is said in jest, but my kids end up doing the strangest things. Things i honestly never thought when I saw that Clearblue pregnancy test flash up ‘PREGNANT’ that i would be dealing with. Obviously having lost a baby, I am well aware that I should ‘appreciate every moment’, but sometimes in day to…
