Love The Little Things #16

It’s the last week of the Easter hols and its flown by, but I’ve loved every minute of being at home.  Really not looking forward to going back to work next week, but for now let’s focus on the highlights of the past 7 days. Read Trashy mags!  On Wednesday I left O with my mum and dad and went for my cut and colour, which is sadly needing to become a much more regular occurrence with the ever increasing number of grey hairs that seem to be appearing.  It does give me a good hour or so to catch…

The Ordinary Moments – Lazy Mornings

Normally in our house mornings are a little bit hectic. With 2 dogs to get fed and sorted and a 2 year old to get milked (not literally!), dressed and dropped off it’s slightly chaotic. I have got better at trying to get organised the night before but I’m still scrabbling around at quarter to 8 in a panic making sure O has a change of clothes, just in case, and a dummy for nap time, and the latest form nursery have wanted filling in! If we leave the house any later than 7:50 I’ve got about a 10% chance…

Love The Little Things #15

This week has been lovely.  No work, a family mini-break and lots of quality time spent with my boys!  The highlights have been: Read The Grand National forecasts!  A very serious business in our house.  We always spend Saturday mornings on National Day reading the pundits opinions and picking our horses.  My 3 horses didn’t do to well (my own fault for picking horses with names that make me laugh.  Shakalakaboomboom, I’m talking about you!!) but hubby backed the winner and is taking me out for dinner tonight with his winnings! Watched The Grand National!  It’s a bit of a tradition…

8 reasons you will ALWAYS be late with a toddler!

I hate being late, hate it! This comes from my dad who will arrive anywhere at least 15 minutes ahead of schedule. Since having a child I have really had to learn to just roll with it and accept the inevitable, I will be late! To pretty much everything! Just a handful of the reasons why: 1. They will always do a poo just as you are about to leave the house. This is especially annoying in winter as once all layered up you then have to undress, change and then re-apply the coat, hat, scarf etc! Just as you…
