Time to talk about the worst kept secret.

Argh, what’s she saying? I think it’s time. Time to talk about the worst kept secret. It seems to be the talk in the press recently, but mainly for the wrong reasons. Whilst most brands are shouting from the rooftops it’s perfectly OK to wet yourself, when it isn’t, I for one am happy to…

What’s with my frump life?

Since having Emily I’ve been guilty of something. I seem to have forgotten how to look after myself. I just don’t do much things for myself like I used to because I have so many other things that I need to do on a daily basis. My hair is always up in a ponytail, I…

I went to Europe CBD Expo and it was so chilled for an event

I’ve been to work events in the past and it’s always been so hectic. It’s pretty much normal to expect people running around trying to make sure everything is going right. There’s always an event manager having a panic attack somewhere because something hasn’t totally gone to plan. Last month I went to the EUROPE…

Our trip to the walk-in minor injury unit

This is my second visit to a NHS hospital for a minor injury since Emily was born. Whilst it’s never ideal to end up in a walk-in or emergency unit of any kind, I’m thankful I’m not here more often. My child may think she’s GI Joe on occasion, but thankfully she’s not caused that…

We’ve finally got an NHS dentist

I’m sure you’ve read in recent months the big change up with dental surgeries in the Kentish area. A lot of counties have seen an increase in dental surgeries closing down which has proved a nightmare for most people. Our dentist in Ramsgate close last year with just a few weeks notice given. In total…

This ridiculous weather is playing havoc with my skin.

This last winter has been tiresome. Whilst all four seasons going wild in the last few months, Emily being up and down with every temperature, cold and fever going, I can’t begin to tell you, I’m so over it and just want summer to arrive. Whilst the weather tops and turns, it’s also playing havoc…

Hello new hair

I’ve got a new haircut. It’s a few days old so if you haven’t seen me with it, here it is… ta da! What do you think? I’ll admit, I have a better picture than that, a few actually, but that was just after my cut and I like it a lot. Thanks mum! Out…

Dummy no more?

At Emily’s nursery, in her toddler group, dummies are forbidden. Plenty of times I’ve dropped Emily off with a dummy in her mouth as she refuses to give hers up and I pick her up and she’s without it. I’m fine with this. After all, a dummy limits a child’s speech and that’s the last…

Formula and your baby

I spoke to a friend the other week about their baby and their formula. They had stopped breastfeeding so had decided to go on formula instead for a few reasons. But they noticed it took a few tries with different formulas before they settled on one, which seemed to work for a few weeks, then…

Going buggyless

Ok ok, I haven’t completely stopped using the buggy, but on the odd occasion, I don’t bring it out with me. Emily likes to explore, it’s good exercise for her and although I don’t do much without the buggy, it’s good practice for when one day I won’t. On a few occasions, I’ve braved walking…

Apologies for the radio silence

Apologies for the radio silence on this blog. I’ve been a little chilled out since my last post went out. Did everyone have a Merry Christmas? Christmas was a bit of a mixed bag here. Last Sunday we went out for lunch with Sam’s brother and family, for a lovely Christmas lunch at Brewers Fayre…

Being Body Positive Whilst Also Losing Weight

I’ve been a bit slack of late. Since dental surgery a few weeks ago, my diet hasn’t been that great as I try to find things to eat that doesn’t cause more injury or harm- it’s quite difficult! Along with it, I’ve been terrible at the fitness side of things. Not sure if the weather…

I’m suffering with dental pain and I’m so over it

Emily’s been having teething pains from hell this year, but recently, thankfully, she’s not been suffering. Whereas me, well, I’m just in agony. It’s not teething but since having dental surgery a few weeks ago, my mouth has been through hell and back and it’s not fun! I’m so over it. It hurts, the pain…
