The reason behind the blogging.

If you’ve read any previous posts, you might find I’ve been a bit gushy, ‘I love life, my life, staying at home, blaaaaa’ and I am truly sorry if you hate that kind of crap. I used to hate it too really. Like if someone got emotional, I’d put on my Mrs. Practical hat and gave them a ‘stiff upper lip’ talk.   I have a few close real world friends, they are fabulous, really they are. However, writing this blog has let me be soppy, stupid, join in and feel part of something. It’s been great. I get a bit tongue tied sometimes and am never really sure what … [Read more…]

A moment in time (seeit, snap it, love it)

This is Eldest on her third birthday. She stuck a balloon to her heard, her expression just exudes 3 year old happiness. I love this photo very much. It seems so long ago my beautiful girl was 3, and I’m happy everytime I see this snap. I happened to come across a linky this afternoon that was like a treasure chest of beautiful moments, you can reach it by clicking the link below. Thank you to Dear Beautiful Boy. These photos have just made my day!

Inspired Changes.

The past few weeks I’ve had this niggly feeling every time I’ve eaten meat, I never used to eat a lot of it anyway, but lately it seems to be all I’m eating. It really is too much.

It’s grown with hard … [Read more…]

Mongolian Blue Spot

Now I had no idea what one of these was, at all. You’d think that being as Mr M is  Vietnamese I would have some inkling of the skin variations in things such as birthmarks. Well I didn’t. Not until my midwife pointed it out to me about an hour ofter Mojo’s birth. She wrote a lot about this thing in my notes, but I was too tired to have any idea what she was talking about, and Beau was too elated. She kindly mentioned it again the day after. Mongolian Blue Spot. What is it? Blue, bluey-grey, blue-black, even deep brown spots on the back, buttocks, base of spine, … [Read more…]

Britmums Prompts #1&2

I’m great because I’m funny I love how silly I am In the last few years I shed how I felt, angry and tired and became the Mom I wanted to be I am who I am because I looked around and chose not to be the same, sometimes in life you have to make a change, as women our lives are a constant sea of change, if I don’t like something and I can change it, I do. I’m as malleable as I can be now. My favourite time of the day is first thing in the morning, rain or shine sitting on my balcony relaxing waiting, quietly, listening … [Read more…]
