My Happy List #4

So, apparently, I do do this happy thing every week! Who knew? This week has been a funny one. The Boy is back to school after half term, so it’s a little bit “thank God we made it”. However, his Dad is still on holiday, so he hasn’t had his normal days at Daddy’s, so… Read More »

The Non-Maternal Mother

I’m perhaps one of the least maternal women going. I do not like children. I never have. However, I always wanted my own. So, I am, perhaps, somewhat of a contradiction. I’m also quite fond of my own, this is, however, because I am raising them in my totally unmumsy way, so they’re not quite… Read More »

My Happy List #3

Another one? Happy again? Well, as it turns out, when you sit down and think “what made me happy this week?” instead of dwelling on what was wrong, there is quite a lot to be happy about. This week is half-term for us. Which I always kind of dread. I know that sounds awful, but,… Read More »

The Liebster Award

The Lovely Autumn’s Mummy has nominated me for a Liebster award. Which was an honour, once I’d googled it and found out what on Earth it was! The Liebster award is apparently a way for bloggers to share the love. We get nominated by another blogger that thinks we are worthy (thanks!). We then have… Read More »

Ideal Housework Jobs for Six-Year-Olds

I think it’s important for children, and in some cases, husbands (mine is very good, as I’m sure are many others!) to help out with housework. It is after all, their house. The Boy has always been pretty good at it. He gets pocket money, but not for housework really, just for “being good”. This… Read More »

My Happy List #2

I said I wasn’t going to do this every week, because I’m not that cheerful. But, you know what? I’ve had another really good week, and I like this having a positive outlook. I’m not sunny, or cheery, I’m a bit dark, and…honest. But, I am happy, I am positive, and I have a lovely… Read More »

My Happy List #1

I’ve read lots of happy lists, or gratitude lists on other blogs over the last few months. I always think it’s lovely. We use our blogs to share ideas, and recipes, but also to have a good moan when we need it. A happy list gives us a chance to be only positive. I love… Read More »

Sixth Birthday Gift Guide

The Boy is 6 on Friday. Which I can’t believe. It has gone so fast. Especially the last few years, which have absolutely flown by. Finding the right gift can be difficult. In some ways, I like his toys now. They are more interesting. His books for example, I actually enjoy reading with him. We’re… Read More »

Home Date Night Ideas

My parents don’t live near by and Hunky husband’s parents spend some time abroad. Friends also have young children, or live far away, so our date nights out, alone, are limited. Nights in together are also limited, as he works until 9pm most nights, and one of his nights off is usually busy with kid… Read More »
