We had a rather interesting letter come home on Friday afternoon stating that chocolate in children’s lunch boxes will be removed as they are not permitted at lunch time. Now I know that the country thanks to Jamie Oliver has gone mad on healthy dinners for kids and I have to agree with the idea. No parent wants their kid to eat pure crap day in day out. But when it was there in black and white I’ve got to admit it annoyed me – and here’s why: 1) I don’t like to be dictated to as to what I…

 The girls tiny baby/newborn/0-3 gear was all packed up last week into a huge suitcase. I couldn’t even bear to start sorting through I just bundled it all into the case with a rather heavy heart.  So it’s sat ready to go up the loft. To join the two vacuum bags and suitcase full of Charlie’s old stuff …! I know, I know. I have massive attachment issues which is ridiculous but I can’t bear to throw them away! At least with all of Charlie’s old clothes I could use the excuse that we may need then again. I think…

So this week I turned 28. A pretty boring age if I’m honest. However I hit this milestone with 3 children – something that I didn’t think was possible when I hit 27! It got me thinking though about the big 3-0. It seems like such a big deal to start a new decade and I admit the thought it a bit weird. I will suddenly sound really grown up when I say my age. I had Charlie when I was 23 so I’ve never had a wild hedonistic 20s and that doesn’t bother me one bit.  My dream 30th…

When I had my first baby I was the first out of my friends to have a baby so I didn’t have any other Mom’s that I knew so I decided to go to baby groups. And I really enjoyed them – well most, some were ridiculously clique-y – but on the whole I liked going to allow Charlie time with other kids but also to get advice and help. Charlie has even started school with some kids we met at these groups so it was really nice to have some familiar faces. So armed with positive experience I’ve taken…

  Random question – do you freely give family and friends your blog link? Do you want those closest to you reading your personal thoughts and feelings? What about acquaintances that you know but don’t -really- know? Is it weird that you could be standing in front of them and they’ve read your innermost personal thoughts? I’ve had a locked twitter pretty much since I joined. Partially due to work and policies on social networking but also because twitter opposed to Facebook is somewhere where when you’re having a crap day – you can say it. And no one (hopefully!) will…

 So it happened. I knew it wasn’t far off but it well and truly has. P1 refused my boob. So with a heavy heart I have to admit that It’s time to call time on my breast feeding days, forever. And I’m not quite sure how to feel about it if I’m honest.   I’d always wanted to give breastfeeding a go with my girlies and just see how we got on. When I told people I was planning on breast feeding twins, I may as well have had a third head – but the way I saw it – two babies – two boobs! Simple.…

I only popped in Tesco to look for some Christmas plates with my Mom & ended up walking out laden with clothes and a whopping £30 off – just what a Mom wants 6 weeks before Christmas  I’ve never done the Clubcard exchange so I annoyingly stood reading the signs of what to do but with £18 of vouchers stuffed at the back of my purse I let the moths fly free and took out £10 worth. This equalled to £20 to spent in clothing – and I loves free money! Ended up buying everyone in the family stuff bar…
