Being driven potty by toilet training

It’s been 28 days since the 2-and-a-half-year-old decided (finally…am I allowed to say that!?!) he wanted to take a pee on the potty. I’m not sure if this is normal, but when he did, I celebrated!…Continue Reading

Are you smarter than a 2-year old?

Are you smarter than a 2-year old?

The Ghost of Christmas Past

The Ghost of Christmas Past

If you read my post on it beginning to feel like Christmas you’ll know that I was a little behind in getting into the Christmas spirit due to works taking place at home. Whilst that didn’t stop me preparing in the background, I was certainly slow on the decorations uptake.  We finally got the decs up on the 18th when Stepson Number 2 arrived having finished school. Every year we chose a colour scheme for the coming year and it was therefore important that I awaited his arrival! Not to mention the small fact that the work was not due to be completed until the 23rd. Nothing like cutting it fine!…Continue Reading

We recently returned from a beautiful holiday in the Canary Islands (see the post on ‘A little Taste of Paradise’ here).

We returned as relaxed as parents can be after a two-week holiday with two kids under two!

High Heels’ Office Project

A couple of months ago the Husband and I decided that we would build a garden office. He’s been self-employed for the last year and I will be taking the deep plunge myself into the exciting but uncharted waters of self-employment when my maternity leave ends soon, so we decided we needed some proper working space.…Continue Reading
