Questions I have for children’s TV shows

As a parent, I watch my fair share of children’s TV shows. Mostly on CBeebies as we don’t have the full children package on Sky (which I am quite pleased about from my friends whose babies continuously watch MilkShake, Disney Jnr and more). Whilst TV shows have drastically improved not only in graphics but storyline…

Emily had her 10 month review last week 

My little baby is 10 months old. Crazy how time is flying. Last week Tuesday Emily had her 10 month review with the health visitor at our local children’s centre. It’s great to see how much she has grown in her little life. She’s crawling, pulling herself up, desperately trying to walk as she can…

I went sober for October and only lasted a week. 😬

So couple months ago I made a decision to join all those others and try and go sober for October for Macmillan Cancer research. And I bloody lasted only a week. For me I suppose that’s quite an accomplishment, besides obviously when I was pregnant. I don’t really have an excuse, I did have a…

Just a little rant…. 

There are some things that I just don’t get other parents doing. Am I being a snob to disagree? But there are just some things that some parents do that are just not ok. I have to get it off my chest after seeing it happen for the third time in less than a week….

Emily is obsessed with Hey Duggee 

If your child hasn’t seen Hey Duggee, you really are missing out. The CBeebies TV show is based around The Squirrel Club, similar to an after-school club for pre-schoolers. The children take part in all different kinds of activities like omelette making, painting, trips out and have lots of different fun adventures that see them…

Our first holiday together 

Last month, Sam, Emily and I returned from our week away in Southern Spain. As we arrived at Gatwick and looked out to the shiny bright light that was the sun, when those doors opened, the cold air that hit, sure reminded us we were no longer on holiday anymore, in holiday mode and heading towards…

We returned from holiday and got sick, bloody typical!

After a lovely holiday in Spain, after a few days amongst all that washing, trouble hit. All of us, like a domino effect, got sick. First was Sam feeling gross with a head cold, next Emily with a horrible viral infection that resulted in a trip to the out of hours doctor department at QEQM…

Tin Star – my new addiction

The new 10-part British thriller series on Sky Atlantic started whilst we were away and although really bloody and violent, which is most definitely not my cup of tea, stars Tim Roth, who I love from Fox Network’s very much short-lived drama series Lie To Me. Former London police detective Jim Worth is the new police chief…

Emily & Scarlet went to Sign & Sing on Wednesday…

Emily and Scarlet love their little quests and adventures. If food is not in the mix, they do love their little natters and giggles. On Wednesday we did something a little different. Whilst they have in the past done a strange hippy sensory group, Clare and I decided that we should try something different with our…

I can’t wait for Broadstairs Food Festival this weekend!

I’m really excited. This weekend is none other than the Broadstairs Food Festival. Whilst this will be my second visit last year was a little difficult enjoying myself, but now that Emily is here, I can push her around in the buggy and really take notice of what’s on offer rather than needing a breather…

Emily and Baby Gates

It appears whilst Emily is in her quest of new adventure and discovery, she just can’t help swinging out of things, putting random bits in her mouth and charging full speed ahead crawling around the place. Which means I need eyes at the back of my head. Working from home is fine if Emily is…
