Pontins, Camber Sands

I have been to Pontins at Camber Sands & Pakefield more times than I’ve been abroad as a child and since coming of age and turning the legal age to drink I have LOVED the 48 hour parties held at Camber Sands, cheap weekends full of tribute acts from the 80’s and 90’s, dressing up…

How I found out I was pregnant

For women actively trying to conceive seeing a positive pregnant test someway along the line is expected but finding out at almost 17 weeks is the probably one of the biggest shocks of your life, trust me! ‘Unplanned’ is a word I hated hearing when I told people I was pregnant, ‘was you trying?’, a…

Bikini Countdown is ON

So First Choice kindly decided to send me an email declaring 53 days until your trip in the sun ‘bikinis at the ready’! Yes I know I booked a holiday almost a month ago, yes I promised myself yep three months to go I can lose plenty of weight in that time, drop a stone,…

Dreading the nursery run!

So today was back to nursery and I was absolutely dreading it getting Frankie up and out! After starting a new position back in London last month we had finally cracked our earlier routine of waking, teeth, dressed and out the door by 7:20am with no tears upon drop off to nursery, so I wasn’t…

Or thought about doing all week? Every Sunday night I find myself thinking exactly that whilst aimlessly flicking through the TV…

Friday the 13th.. McDon’s disaster!

Are you someone like me who HATES filling up, will put a £10 in here and there but never fully fill the tank up and convince yourself you’ve got at least another 40 miles from the point your petrol light comes on? Well after today I will tell you exactly why you shouldn’t be that…

Is that another spot?

So after avoiding it for almost a year of infectious warnings at nursery, it looks like chicken pox has finally shown it’s many scabby faces! Any time my phone rings and the screen displays ‘Nursery’ I honestly grab my phone so fast you’d think it was part of a task on a game show, that…
