But also, very useful to pregnant women looking for some real-life stories to help them to prepare. Because let’s face it, they’re… Read More »

Chicken Pox: A Tale of Two Children

My Happy List #7

Well, it’s been a pretty crap few months. Husband has been out of work for a while. He did get a new job which you might remember I mentioned in my last happy list. But, it didn’t work out (was in fact truly awful!) so he’s been searching once more. At some point, the stress… Read More »

My lovely friend Sarah at A Mundane Life has tagged me in the Rocking Motherhood tag. So, I’ve had to sit down and think of 10 ways I’m rocking motherhood. I think most of us are rocking motherhood in our own way (well, not some of those mum’s you see in the Daily Mail), and… Read More »

My Happy List #5

I haven’t write a happy list for about 3 weeks. This isn’t because I haven’t been happy as such. There have just been pressing concerns. That have kind of overwhelmed everything else.
