I blame the older sister for this one….


I am so predictable, well it is hard deciding what to wear although I’m not sure whether other fashionistas have the same issues as me!

Scissors and Glue.

We’ve decide to decorate the house for Halloween this year. There is glitter everywhere.

Late night discord.

I don’t think this needs any words, apart from yes I am a grumpy cow, especially when sleep deprived.

A trip to the wildlife park.

Wellies a must I think.

What my seven year old thinks of the Miss World Beauty Contest…

Yes and it isn’t much, take it away Millie…

Feeding the pigeons…

…and the chickens, the ducks, rabbits, geese, ponies, and fish….we fed them all!


What is that noise coming from my ceiling?

Shopping for me.

Let your children decide what to put on you. My lot have decide their Mum is a very classy woman indeed. They know what I like.

Dirty Boy. (My 100th post)!

Make your own Bider!

A little project for Halloween, make your own spiders, sorry….biders….

Baby Wipes.

Note to self, do not leave baby wipes in the path of a curious 11 month old.


Are we warm enough?

Never mind you can’t move, can’t have you getting cold now, it’s cold in the morning!

First day at nursery… went well, I didn’t cry, she didn’t cry. We were very brave.

What every child loves…..

The Party

Well, I am still alive but my brain has short circuited, the Jurassic jelly went down well and we’re still eating the party food for tea.

Where did the time go? An Evie Montage.

To celebrate my daughter’s 3rd birthday, here’s a wee montage of the little whirlwind.

Birthday Cake

It’s Evie’s  third birthday tomorrow and I’ve made her a cake. I’m shattered and have lungs full of icing sugar. The cake’s …interesting…



Squirrel tree

THERE for art thou squirrel!!!!!Deny thy nut and refuse thy tree: or if thou will not, be sworn my friend!

Scrambled eggs.

Go and fetch the eggs for me girls….don’t drop them ok?

Baby Tsunami

Window lickin’ good

Arnie and Blondie

This is why Arnie leaves our chickens alone. Blondie is one of our hens, she’s blonde.

There be monstas in that wardrobe…..

Beauty and the Beast

I tell you, only in the mind of my daughter do Dinosaurs and Dolls coexist in perfect harmony…..

Pit Stop

It’s like changing the nappy off a flailing octopus….

Ninja Kitty

Don’t tease the cat, no seriously, girls don’t tease the…oh what’s the use, learn the hard way then.


Babies aren’t manipulative, they’re not spoilt, they don’t take advantage of  you, they don’t need fancy clothes, they just need….you…it’s hard …and I’m tired, …think Gruff is too.

Party Shopping for Evie’s Party

Once you’ve made your pinata you’ve got to fill it. Off to the shops to fill our trolley with half a tonne of teeth rotting goodies……well, you’re only three once….

The Pinata.

We’re making a pinata for Evie’s birthday party. She wants a dinosaur. I thought it would be good to let the girls help me.


Where for art thou, squirrels?

Legs Akimbo!

Went for a follow up smear due to abnormal cells, had to take Evie and Gruff with me….


It’s  good fun for a 2 year old to paint. Good for their development, good for their creative growth, good for their….erm…skin….


Oh to be 7 years old again….

Actually, I wouldn’t.

It’s far too frustrating.

All that learning and achieving, far too much pressure.
