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 as Batman and Snow White and sinking a whole load … Continue reading Pontins, Camber Sands

Trying to find time to see everyone you want to see in a week Trying to find time to lose weight or go to the gym Trying to find time to make up dinners for the week Trying to find time to wash your hair Trying to find time to put … Continue reading Overwhelmed
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 question I hated being asked, well yes I was doing … Continue reading How I found out I was pregnant
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, dress size, finally wear the summer clothes I bought for … Continue reading Bikini Countdown is ON
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 confident that we would have an easy morning so I … Continue reading Dreading the nursery run!
Do you ever look back at pictures of yourself before you became a Mum and think how easy and carefree it all was? No care for anyone else but yourself doing what you want when you want not having to keep a pack of quavers and an emergency dummy in your hand bag or check they haven’t done a poo every time you go to … Continue reading The you before you became a Mum ❤️
The spots are finally starting to disappear.. slowly & the sun was out so after 8 days isolation I decided Frankie was more than ready (and less infectious) to take over the park for an hour. He finally burnt out all the energy he has been building up over the last week in the park going down the slides, roundabouts and swings! & despite me … Continue reading Hutton’s at Wickford Memorial
Does anyone else feel like they spend all week waiting for the weekend then in a blink of an eye it’s Sunday night again and your reflecting on all the things you should’ve/could’ve done? Or thought about doing all week? Every Sunday night I find myself thinking exactly that whilst aimlessly flicking through the TV trying to find something to watch whilst scrolling through social … Continue reading Sunday’ze
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 person (or bring a cash card to pay by chip … Continue reading Friday the 13th.. McDon’s disaster!
‘So are you thinking of having another one?’, ‘When are you going to start trying for baby number two?’, ‘You know two years is a really good age gap to start trying again!’. Since my little boy turned two I have been asked when baby number two will be making an appearance. A lot of the Mums, friends and celebrities who were pregnant/had babies around the same time … Continue reading So.. When you having another?!
‘One should work as though they don’t children yet parent as though their children are their only job’ – agree? OF COURSE NOT. The role of a working Mum is a conundrum to a lot of people, many people like to have an opinion on it, I have lost track of the amount of people that have made comments because I WANTED to return to … Continue reading Returning to Work
I wish I could tell you that our long weekend was full of Easter themed activities.. But I would be lying! I didn’t lay eggs round the garden for an Easter Egg Hunt (we live in a flat), nor did I participate in local Egg Hunt either (the rain put a stop to us going to any of those!) I didn’t spend £25 on a … Continue reading Easter 2018
