Daddy was off today, it’s very rare that he gets a weekday off or any day lately for that matter. He was supposed to be doing a bit of work in the house but with nap times and school runs it never happened. So with an afternoon to kill we (more…)

Picture this. The preparations for school are underway. You’re finally finding yourself and restoring some sort of routine back in the house after a hectic summer. Then you discover your three under three have measles…
Everyone keeps asking how we are getting on. Well, it’s mayhem, it’s madness, it’s absolute chaos. Nothing can prepare you for two under one, or three under three. Somedays I look down and say to myself who owns all these kids. There’s so many of them. There are too many names remember. I call Kadie Kenzie and Kenzie Kadie. I even opened the door one evening and called Frankie’s name really loudly. He was in bed and I woke him with my roars. I was looking for the dog. (more…)
It was Wednesday the 13th of July, with just under two weeks to my due date. The mini bus was kitted with our new Pebble Plus Maxi Cosi and my hospital bag. I was so nervous driving into the hospital, I was going in to have a membrane sweep. They had been successful in my last two pregnancies so as far as I was concerned I was going in to have my baby. Due to having a BBA (born before arrival) with Kadie I was been kept in after my sweep just as a precaution. (more…)
Tiny little baby, so precious and small,
Before I know it, across my floor you will crawl.
One finger, two fingers, three fingers, four, (more…)
What a week it has been. Our beautiful little bundle arrived last Friday night, and she is perfect, all seven pounds two ounces of her. It’s like she’s always been here, and for everyone asking, yes, we made it to the hospital with plenty of time to spare. My poor mother was palpitating when I rang to tell her I was getting mild irregular contractions so much she left work in a panic and spent the next few hours hounding me to leave. (more…)
So there is absolutely no sign of anything happening. My Hicks, the niggly back cramps, and those mild contractions have disappeared off the face of the earth. It’s a really weird feeling especially at 38 weeks pregnant considering all my babies come early. I’m normally praying for the onset of labour, I even served Kadie her eviction notice this time last year, I dunno I feel like I’ve another week or so left in me. (more…)
A couple of weeks back I teamed up with some UK bloggers and George at Asda to share our school days memories as part of their Back to School Campaign and it brought me right back, back to pog wars, chocolate muffins on a Friday, meeting friends for life and soggy sambos.
It’s been a long week. I’ve had five iron infusions, my last one was yesterday. And I must say even though I was stressed out looking for minders for the kids these little infusions have me feeling fabulous. Everything to my complexion, the colouring of my eyes and I have bundles of energy. I’ve never in all four pregnancies felt so good especially not at 37 weeks pregnant. (more…)
So as you know Frankie is in disposable nappies, he never really liked the bulk of cloth nappies and he always leaked no matter what I tried. He was in size 5 for awhile, then he outgrew them or so I thought so I moved him onto size 5+. The next size up, obviously. (more…)
