Travelling with kids- 3 months and 6 years- the truth!

Erin is a seasoned traveller at 3 months I took her to Spain… worst holiday of my life… she decided she would scream every dinner time for food, got stung by a bee and teethed two teeth. Since then she’s been legendary! She’s gone to the Caribbean, Disney 3 times, and with us to Dubai …

Proud isn’t the word!

If you have read my blog for a long time you will know school has been somewhat testing for Erin. We had good days, we had silly days, we had perfect days, we had naughty days. Finally things are levelling out. Erin had a new teacher in January and I will admit I was scared. …

Baby weight be gone!

Having IVF is not only tough on the mind but it’s also tough on the body, it pumps you with tonnes of hormones that make you gain weight before your even pregnant. I excel at gaining weight when pregnant anyway and ended up going from 9.3 stone to 12.5 stone, at 5 foot 4 (at …

The queen of after school clubs!

It’s the end of term and again I have had the flurry of letters asking if Erin would like to do any clubs. Her answer is always yes. Since she started school she’s some tonnes of clubs and I have no idea if I should tone it down or if it’s a really good thing? …

Christmas, Easter bunny, Tooth Fairy- What are the rules?!

With Christmas around the corner, we definitely have our traditions set… but what I have realised is when your little angels go to school they discuss what goes on. This has left me in a pickle because many times Erin has come home and compared life with ‘Gemma- (random name pick of a non-school child)’ …

Did I ask for your opinion?!

This isn’t a very positive post for me which is unusual as I’m not really an unhappy person but in the last few weeks I have realised that I haven’t got time for people who don’t give anything back, or go out of their way to give a negative. I have always been a bit …

It’s Sunday night. One more full day then school. In all honesty I thought this weekend would be much better. It turns out it was pretty shit. Friday night Erin got home from her holiday with her dad. Being away for a week always gives her a stinking attitude and a lack of being able …
