Hello!

Hi, this is my first ever blog. I plan to share with you my experiences – from life with a toddler to mental health issues, and everything in between. Hopefully in a humorous and honest way! If you like come join me on facebook and twitter too! facebook twitter

Should I let her dance?

I’ve always wanted to send my baby to dance lessons. Despite struggling to live in the dancers world myself, it can be a very critical and harsh world to be in, which can be hard if you don’t have a self esteem that is or near enough bullet proof. I always wanted any babies I had to dance,…

Proposing

Since its near the date where we got engaged, I thought I’d do a little post about our slightly unconventional proposal day! We’ve been together for 8.5 years now. I had always been anti-marriage. Great for other people but it wasn’t for me. It took me by surprise when I knew I wanted to marry…

My unexpected valentine 

With today being Valentines Day, and reading many valentines themed posts, it made me think a little about me and my husband, how our relationship grew, and how dating has changed since we were! A friend of mine recently tried to sign up to a well known dating website. One that matches you with compatible partners. In…

The incompetent housewife

The incompetent housewife. That’s me. I don’t know how I’m so bad at this?! I have always been messy. But my house has always been clean. Now it’s a whole different story. Running my own business and looking after a toddler and 2 dogs is messier, no, dirtier than I thought. I just summoned the energy…

I’ve been away to a forgotten place

I’ve been away. I know I have been away from my blog for a little while. That was because  I was oh so poorly, woe is me! Sorry if you missed me. But this isn’t what this post is actually about. I’ve been away to the long forgotten place, that is, the bottom of my wardrobe. There are dust tumbleweeds blowing…

Ending our addictions

There are 2 addicts in this house.  Yes 2. And it’s time for it to end. 2 out of 3 of us, I’m not including the dogs, all though they do have a slight addiction to food, especially if they can steal it! But dogs aside, 2 of us are struggling. And it’s not my…

Just the one then?

Yes I have ‘just the one’ child. It aggravates me no end that people ask me ‘when are you having another?’ – this has been asked since my daughter was born!!! But worse is what comes after ‘oh just the one then?’ erm yes, then ‘Why???’. This bugs me. It bugged me when I’d just given birth. It bugged…

To breast or not to breast?!

Image found here: Photo Every now and then I read an article about how women have been shamed for how they feed their baby. In the U.K. it is usually mothers breastfeeding in public who are shamed. So I thought I’d write my 2 cents on this and how things were for me. I think everyone…

Explaining mental health to your child, how?

I know explaining my mental illness to our daughter is a way off. But I have to think about it, because it will happen. It’s a conversation my husband and I have every now and then. I want us to be on the same page when the time comes. My daughter is only 2.5 but…

Sleepy time

I read a post on a mum missing her old bedtime routine with her toddler (I wish I could remember who’s blog it was, I’d pop a link to it). This, combined with a few articles on sleep training made me think about our sleep journey. My daughter has never had an issue staying asleep….

Christmas Helped Us

Before Christmas when I’d quit my Sunday job, I’d realised that me and my husband were out of practise with spending time together. I worked out in a working week we were only seeing each other for a total of 25 hours a week. Which included one shared day off a week. This was more…

My daughters Christmas

We all loved Christmas this year. My daughter understood it a little bit more, and loved it! She LOVED spending time with family, especially those she doesn’t see very often. Her Auntie, who sadly lives over 5000 miles away, got to spend a decent chunk of time with her, which makes me really happy but also makes me wish…
