As most moms know, it’s nice to have a hobby, for most of us it will be the blog itself. Blogging lends itself to a whole host of therapeutic uses, it can be a place to complain, a place to share and a often much needed dose of escapism, while dipping your toes into the lives of others. I do enjoy blogging, like most starter bloggers my audience is probably here by accident, but that’s the best bit, you have no idea who is reading about your life, looking at pictures of your family, judging your opinions and poor writing skills (like mine). If you take some time out, and … [Read more…]
Why is it that some people without children think that staying at home with kids is routine? Here are the things I do daily, 100%, everyday – the real routine stuff. Washing up Clothes wash Hoover Prepare food Now, I’m pretty sure that most people do this, those without those life sucking spawn too. My days are anything but routine, I never have the same conversation, I never clean the same shade of poop up, I never ever have a clue what Eldest is going to say. If you go out to work I’m pretty sure you do the same thing everyday, just with perhaps different clients & a different … [Read more…]
Okay, I haven’t posted in a while, it has been quite manic. In a previous post I mentioned us going away, Mojo’s first flight, she was in fact a dream. Mojo and eldest laughed as loud as possible during turbulence (the weather was terrible) and cheered up the other people on the flight. Many comments after the flight about how cute they were and so on, lovely!We went up as a surprise to celebrate my Nana’s 70th birthday, she nearly fell away with shock. Mission complete. As a gift to her I filled a photo album up of pictures of the girls, many many of them. In the front we put … [Read more…]
Yes potato bake isn’t hard to make, in fact there are now jars of sauce to make it even easier… But sometimes it’s nice to make your own hearty bake from scratch. Mines a little different. I don’t do exact measurements, no one sticks to them anyway, plus as a Momma I use what I have to hand, I’m busy! 3 Parsnips4 Carrots (optional)4 Sweet PotatoesCheese, gated, your favourite brandDried/fresh Parsley (or another herb you like as much.)Mixed veg, to serve on the side, again whatever you like and your kids will eat. Fill a pan with water, and put on the hob to boil. Pre-heat oven to around 180 … [Read more…]
So my Nana is going to be 70 this on the 28th of April, so, I decided to book a flight up with me and the girls to surprise her, take her for a meal and what not. Sounds lovely, she live 2 minutes from the beach, is surrounded by fields and playgrounds, all in all it’s a lovely place. But here is the thing, I’m taking both girls on a plane, by myself. No man help in sight. It’s Mojos first time on a plane but Eldest has been on many times. Taking a toddler, or a child 3+ seems so easy to me right now. The first time … [Read more…]
These are some of my favorite pictures of them … Eldest Mojo Eldest aged 4.5 Me and Mojo Eldest being an ‘splozor’ Me and Mojo Eldest testing out her photography skills I love this photo a lot. Eldest. Testing out Momma glasses Eldest 3rd Birthday Eldest raising money for Barnardos age 2.5 (She raised £150) Eldest loved her ‘ink fuff’ (pink fluffy) coat Mojo, because everything is funny when you’re 5 months old.
So here is a little video of Mojo, she does this a lot, I can only assume she is part Vampire… I did after all watch a lot of Twilight while pregnant. I’m not ashamed, I thoroughly enjoyed it.
On twitter today I see Mummy From The Heart asking for posts, being the nosey beasty I am, I have a look at the post that this is in reference to. It is not at all what I expected and thus read not only a personal post, which details the struggles they went through, but another cause too. The other cause is quite heartbreaking. Obviously as a mother I’m drawn to the Maternal and Child Health when I first get to the ONE.org site. There is however so much more to this campaign than meets the eye. The website is packed with so many devastating facts and figures… “Every year, … [Read more…]
Its easy, it’s tasty and it looks quite stunning once cooked. So you’ll need : Beef (could be casserole beef, slow cook beef or any alternative that you like) Beef stock (I am lazy and thus use the Knorr Beef Stockpot) Herbs (I plonk in a Knorr Herb Stockpot) 2 Onions Chopped, sliced or diced – chefs choice. 3 Carrots Sliced into circles looks lovely 4 Mushrooms (if you don’t like them then leave them out, if you are keeping the in slice them up) 4 Potatoes (quartered) Glug of red wine, not enough to get your kids drunk but enough to enhance the flavour. Now the cooking bit: … [Read more…]
