Unplanned Family Evening

I took the girls to school as normal in the morning yesterday. Picked Elliw up 11 and picked Mia up at 3. We came home by 3.30pm and the girls played in the back garden for a bit until Mia came back in because apparently there were too many bugs and flies outside for her to play outside. I helped …

The Girl Who Lost Her Name | Book Review

I think giving a child a bedtime story is an important part of a routine. Although, the only times I won't read my girls a bedtime story, is if they have misbehaved very badly or another reason. I was always given a bedtime story when I was younger by my Dad. I have given some of my books to my…

To My Beautiful Two Daughters

Mammy loves you both, oh so much!
She really does.

Mammy only wants to go to toilet, why do you have to follow me up and say you want one first?
Every time when Mummy is bursting too!

Mammy loves having cuddles with you both...
But Mummy doesn't like it when you both argue over me {and then t…

Appointments Children Need

Becoming a parent you don't realise how many appointments your child actually needs. From eye tests to vaccinations and health visitor appointments. We all want the best for our children now and for the future so it's our job to go to these important appointments as it will benefit for the…

Ffotograffiaeth / Photography Linky.

Anyone who knows me, they will know that I always take my camera everywhere with me. Whether it's my iPhone or one of my cameras. I love taking photos of stunning views, flowers and capturing photos of my girls, family and friends.

Every Friday until Monday I will be hosting a photography link…

Mummy and Me | June

I've tried to take a few photos of myself with the girls the past month. We've had quite a busy month and we have another busy month ahead of us too! Writing this has made me think that we are due another family photo. I am sure the last one we did was Christmas time and that was a selfie! …

Weight Loss Journey | Update

You may have read my last weight loss update. I said I would update you all every week but in all honesty I went against the idea of updating every week. In that first week I gained. Not a lot but I still gained. The second week I lost 3lbs! YES! 3lbs! I was over the moon. I was happy. Aswell as l…

Photographs Of The Week.

{Mia did me so proud, in her school sports day} 

Just Another Linky #9

Hi everyone. I hope you've all had a fantastic week! I loved reading all your posts and guess what?! We had a record!!! YES!! Let's hope for more fab posts again this week. I'm sorry I haven't commented on some posts, but I read all of them. I've just been so busy this week and …

Blogging

This post will probably apply more to people who are thinking about starting a Blog or newly-bloggers. I still think I am quite 'new' as my Blog is only just over 2 years old, so I am still in the early stages but I have learnt a lot about blogging and being in the 'blogging world'…

What I Expect From A Childcare Day Nursery

Just a few weeks ago I started thinking about Childcare settings. My first job was working in a Nursery looking after children aged 3 months - 12 years. Mia was with me so I have been quite lucky with not having to try find a nursery for her to go to whilst I worked.

When I started my previous job…

Travelling With Children | Abroad

Travelling abroad with children can be nerve-racking but there are ways to make your travels stress-free. When we got told we were going to Thailand the first thing that I thought about was the flight. I worry about a lot of things and I really did worry about the flight. Knowing that we had to tra…

Mia's School Sports Day

Another year has gone! This time I brought my camera with me. But typical, the battery went flat but I did manage to get a few good photos of her. She did 3 races and she came 3rd in running and 3rd in the bean bag race {where you have the bean bag on top of your head!}. She was also close in comi…

Imprify | Review

Anyone who knows me, they know I am forever taking photos. Whether it is using my phone or using my camera I have always got one of them with me wherever I go. I tend to take my camera out if I am going out for a long walk with the girls or a picnic etc. Otherwise I will have my phone for taking p…

Tempur Travel Pillow | Review

When travelling on a plane for such a long distance, it sure can get pretty boring and very uncomfortable {unless you are first class, I guess!}. My first holiday was to Thailand. It was a very long flight but we were lucky enough to have TV's on the back of the headrests and we were given a p…

MY LIFE BEFORE BEING A PARENT

I fell pregnant at the age of 16. I was young and yes I was pretty immature too. Before I fell pregnant I used to visit my friends in the next town, get a late bus back home. I used to have a drink and get drunk sometimes. I was enjoying my life. Then one day, two lines came up on a pregnancy test.…

Making Memories

Growing up without a mother figure in my life I knew that once I had children, I knew the wrong and right ways of being a Mother. The biggest thing I wanted to do was to make memories with my girls. I want them to turn round to me one day "do you remember that day when..." and rememberin…

First VS Second

Being a parent to one child is easier than being a parent to multiple children. Having my second daughter changed my life, again. Changed my routine, changed my feelings, changed the way I thought of certain things and just changed pretty much everything. It may not always be like that for everyon…
