Should I be feeling mum guilt?

I often wonder if I should be feeling the ‘mum guilt’ more than I do. This week I had my probation review. I passed, which is amazing as I love my job. It means, however, that it’s been 6 months since I started my ‘new’ job. 6 months since I went back …

In The Night Garden Live Discount Code

Last August I realised that In The Night Garden Live was in Manchester. Spike had just discovered the show and loved it, so I looked into tickets. I was too late. The tickets for the times we could go were mostly sold out and our financial situation at the time …

My Sunday Photo 05/03/2017

This weekend I’ve nipped up to my parents house alone with Spike. It’s always a worry not having T with me as we’re never sure how she’ll sleep and it’s a 100 mile drive how after the visit. Thankfully she wasn’t too bad last night but napping today wasn’t happening …

My top 5 Instagram pictures – February 2017

This month I’ve been trying a little harder to take, and post, some great instagram pictures. The ones that came out on top reflect that as they are probably my favourites from the month. They feature some great, and cheeky, captures of my little miss, who is just so cute …

Nursery… One year on

February 16th 2017. On this day, one year ago, I was lost without my little sidekick. My little cling on was at nursery. It was the first time I had left her for more than a few hours with someone who wasn’t her daddy. And I missed her more than I …

My Sunday Photo 19/02/2017

We went to Blue Planet Aquarium this week to help entertain the monster formerly known as Spike. She was in a right mood from about 10 minutes in which put a downer on the day. However I did manage to take this magnificent photo of a shark during the underwater …

Spike’s Footballing Fun – A Diddikicks Review

Before she was born, my aim was to get Spike involved in lots of activities to keep her stimulated. I was looking into what age gymnastics could start before she could roll over. And I’m still determined not to make her wait until she’s 5 before she rock climbs! Football was …

Fitness and me

Fitness isn’t something I ever thought I’d talk about on this blog. It’s not ever been something I’ve thought a lot about. I don’t want it to become something I talk about either. But it is something I am beginning to think I need to aim towards. I have been …

My top 5 Instagram pictures – January 2017

I recently saw Organised Jo’s posts about her top five Instagram pictures each month and thought it was a great idea for a post so decided I’d join in. January was a busy month and I probably posted at least twice a day most days! These are the posts that …

My Sunday Photo 29/01/17

  Spike has been desperate to walk everywhere lately so when we out today I decided to take her backpack with us. We let her walk a bit more that usual and it was slow going but she loved it. We’ve had such a wonderful week. Spike has really bloomed …
