Cleaning Monster…

Is it just me, or does anybody else go over the top with the cleaning when you know you have visitors coming? This week we had my daughters two year assessment with the Health Visitor. I spent a couple of days before she came cleaning the house, from top to bottom.  Everything had to be […]

Mama Down..

I’m usually a positive thinker and I am grateful for every single thing I have in my life, from the smallest things to the massive things like my beautiful daughter.  But sometimes, it feels like no amount of positive thinking can stop the negativity from seeping in… A couple of weeks ago I found out […]

Halloween Paper Plates

I love messy play sessions with my daughter and niece. Nothing better than getting the paint and craft things out and letting them have at it. Having fun and making a mess.   With Halloween just around the corner, my sister and I thought we would use it as our inspiration, and make some spooky […]

Messy Monday, Crappy Crafter!

I absolutely love all things craft related; whether this be painting, drawing, making jewellery, pottery or whatever… If it involves crafting, I love it.

Sister Sister

Sister sister, I can’t believe it. My baby sister is turning thirty! I think anyone who has a sibling is blessed, especially if you are close in age. You grow up with your siblings, sharing your lives, going through similar journeys. Some siblings drift apart as they get older, others remain close. I am lucky […]

Why does my child hate me?

Why does my child hate me? Okay, I know she doesn’t really hate me; she is two years old, she doesn’t know what hate is. But I tell you, it sure feels like she hates me sometimes. This week especially! I would even go as far as saying that this week has been torturous, and […]

Screw You, Night Terrors!

So it’s official; my 2 year old daughter, Molly, has night terrors! And there is absolutely nothing I can do about it! Well, I can give her a massive cuddle when it’s all over but that is about it. Night terrors are one of the scariest things I have ever witnessed. God knows how Molly must feel […]
