What I Learnt From a 7yr Old’s Birthday Party

My niece had her birthday party recently and as I sat stuffing my face with party rings dressed unwillingly in a cheap Belle costume dress, I realised a few things. 1. Princess dresses are itchy. They might look good, but they are definitely itchy and I came away from that party with red marks on my arms. 2. Wigs also are very itchy. I have […]

What’s In My (Nappy) Bag?

I seem to be clearing out my bag every two or three days and yet somehow its always full and I’m always left looking like an idiot searching for my purse or bus ticket whilst a queue forms behind me. I cannot fathom how it always gets to full, when I merely carry the essentials! My purse: With fifteen pence in pennies, two five pence […]

Pros & Cons of Living Alone – THE CONS

**Disclaimer: I obviously don’t technically live alone, however having lived with flatmates, boyfriends and parents I can tell you  that living with Mini is pretty much like living alone (apart from all the great Mini cuddles I get.)** Living alone is great, don’t get me wrong (If you don’t believe me, go and check out my last post about it), but there are nights when […]

It’s All Fluff – What’s Wrong With Being Commercial?

  **WARNING: LONG POST** “It’s all fluff!”  In year 10, as part of our GCSE coursework, I was required to write a short story. “The title of the piece must be “Monday”, but it can be about anything you want, anything at all.” Excitement fluttered through my stomach, and I spent the rest of the school day obsessing over which idea I was going to […]

Dating Tales: The Time I Was The Worst Date Ever

I have written in my bio that I am a dating failure, and that is no lie.   I am a dating failure. Not to say that I am an awful date (please date me..I’m pretty average looking, have an adorable pre-made child, and can be funny, sometimes…), it just so happens that A LOT of the dates that I have been on have been […]

Here’s To You! (Part 2)

-The girls who know that cooking a frozen pizza is a fine art. (One minute it is still frozen, the next minute it is burnt!) – The girls who cannot meal plan to save their lives.– The girls who have thread veins before the age of thirty. (What is that about?) – The girls who sit in the bath thirty minutes longer than they planned […]

(NOT) How To: Use Coconut Oil For Your Skin

Lots of people rave about the many uses of coconut oil, and since I already had it in the house (for my hair) I thought I would try it out on my face. (Mostly because I wasn’t too sure about how I would feel about it in my mouth…that’s what she said.) ** I am not an expert** You should use coconut oil for your […]

Here’s to You! (Part 1)

Here’s to you/me/us: – The girls who pop a spot as soon as it dare make an appearance. We know we shouldn’t, we tell other people they shouldn’t, but as soon as it raises its ugly yellow head we have to get rid of it – and fast! – The girls who started a diet a week ago and the cucumber you brought for “salad” […]

10 Gross Things My Kid Has Done

To me M is perfect, but she is just a baby and that means she does some things us mums would rather not talk about…well not me. Nearly every day M does something that amazes and astounds me, but 6/10 times those things are pretty gross. Here is a run down of the 10 best (or weirdest) ones.  1. She licked my foot. Actually she […]

P.lease M.ore S.weets

Today I was really suffering with our good old pal, Aunt Flow. I had a gas man come round to my house to fit a smart meter (only took 8 months to sort), and though he was only here for an hour at the most, I noticed myself become more and more unnecessarily angry at how long he was taking and how many questions he was […]
