My little human

It's the beginning of a new era. Henry has started to understand and obey my orders. 'Put that down' he drops whatever he's holding. 'Give it to mummy please' he plunges his chubby fist at me and gives me whatever he's grasping. 'Can mummy have a cuddle please' he headbuts (ouch) me and nuzzles into... Continue Reading →

What theeeee

When Henry was tiny I used to be so grateful of a 1 or 2 hour stint of uninterrupted sleep. He would be waking for feeds and I was a new mum, checking on him every 5 minutes to make sure he was breathing next to me. I didn't know if I was awake or... Continue Reading →

Taming the beast

When dealing with a wild young child there are some precautions you might want to take before taming the little beast. 1. Safety goggles - these will come in handy for flying toys and food that gets launched at you mid tantrum.  2. The pony tail - tie that hair up. There's nothing worse than... Continue Reading →

What dreams are made of

I used to dream of nice jewellery, gorgeous clothes, the latest gadgets and pretty girly things. These days I dream of the latest Dyson cordless hoover and the best oven cleaner around.  Don't get me wrong I still love all that girly pretty shit but I have cupboards full of it from my previous life,...
