School Morning Routine | Too Much Chaos Not Enough Caffeine!
Too Much Chaos Not Enough Caffeine! School mornings in my house are crazy most mornings. I set my alarm for 6 am to get myself ready and organised before the craziness begins! I lose count of how many times I run up and down the stairs, making sure Chloe, my middle daughter is out of bed. […]
Exciting Times | A New Chapter April 18
Exciting Times. March has been a bit of a funny month and slightly stressful with some uncertainties relating to my current employment. But things are finally looking up. An exciting opportunity has come my way, doing the job that I do now for the same salary and only a 5-minute walk from home. I don’t […]
What it is actually like living with Two Teenage Daughters!
The good, The bad and the ugly! Having two teenage daughters can be challenging at times! Know-it-all-teens must always have the last word, and they certainly do like to be heard when they are shouting at their parents or each other. By the age of 13, they have the look of death mastered. You will […]
Calming Walk to Work in The Snow | Working Mum
"When it snows, you have two choices, shovel or make snow angels." There is something majestic about snowfall, that thick blanket of crunchy snow; everything looks so bright! When I opened the front door yesterday morning, it looked like a scene from a real-life snow globe - I wasn't as keen on the - 6 […]
Spring Is Officially On Hold
The Beast From The East As we head into March, we kind of think that nature should just be beginning to wake up; birds are singing, pretty purple and white flowers are starting to grow on Harrogate's Stray. The days are starting to get longer; the lighter mornings are making it that little bit easier […]
Chloe | My Teddy Tedds
Chloe I always knew that you would be my little monkey, you're such a free spirit, and you do keep your Dad and me on our toes. You came into the world 5 and a half weeks early, on the day that your Dad decided he would strip and redecorate our lounge! You were born […]
Weekend Bits & Bobs | Lexi's 1st ever Groom
Relaxing weekend before work and school on Monday! What a fantastic semi-relaxing week, I am feeling ready to head back to work for a rest! But, not looking forward to the manic mornings, getting our three grumpy girls up and out the door - hopefully on time! Friday evening Dan and I headed out to […]
Half Term Fun | February 2018
Happy Half Term! As half term draws to a close and we head back to the school/work routines. It has not been as stressful as I first thought it would be! I thought I would never hear myself say that! I managed half term alone without Dan for the whole week! No shouting, fighting, or […]
Lonely Mummy Moments | Working Mum
Good Morning! I have been thinking about this a lot lately about the dreaded lonely Mummy moments. Some people may think, you work full-time, how are you lonely? You are not at home alone all day with children. Well, let me tell you, I have never felt more alone than I have in recent months. I […]
Weekend Bits & Bobs | Messy Sunday
This can't be right?! This weekend has been lovely; I can't remember the last time it was this nice! Not even any screaming like a fishwife from under-caffeinated Mombie, not even any Teenage daughter tantrums, or a squealing unhappy 8-year-old. Relaxing Saturday. Saturday, we got a lie in until around 8.30 am, with no little […]
In Need Of A Bubble Hug | Emotionally Drained
Emotionally I'm done. Mentally, I'm drained. Physically, I smile! Sat at work rosy-cheeked and puffy-eyed! I needed a way to let out the way I am feeling. Here goes! I'm not feeling my best self. Lately, I hate the way I look! Feeling very tired and run down, snap at everyone and the littlest of […]
Flatpack Hell | Bedroom Furniture!
Pretty Pink Bedroom. What little girl doesn't want a pretty pink bedroom!? Kayleigh has been asking and asking for a pink room for longer than I can remember! But it isn't easy when we rent. I would have loved to have gone the whole shebang, unicorn wallpaper and lots of glitters. Instead, we opted for […]
