I like to believe that I am a relatively strong woman, someone who knows her own mind and who is ultimately in control of her own destiny – or at least in control of what I have for breakfast. But, as I lay on the sofa (again). Shivering at 3am (again). With a screaming toddler … Continue reading Like a puppet on a string
As we all know, being a parent is an all-consuming, life changing job. It gives us purpose, a reason for being… and headaches. Your life as you knew it is turned upside down and suddenly you are a different person who is wondering what on earth happened. Something else occurs when you become a parent too, … Continue reading Don’t judge me – Tales of the unexpected
Back in December we went on a little adventure to London to meet up with two brilliant bloggers, Absolutely Prabulous and Just Saying Mum. After A LOT of chatting we all focussed and managed to do an interview together and here it is! http://www.absolutelyprabulous.com/bloggers-cafe-s1-ep4-running-a-dual-blog-sarah-and-louise/ We are really proud to be a part of this!

The harsh reality of parenting is obviously completely different. We find ourselves doing things we NEVER … Continue reading “Poops win prizes” and other things I never thought I’d say
Before I start this post I would like to make it very clear that I DO NOT WANT ANOTHER BABY! These are the words that I am screaming at my over active hormones lately. I don't want another baby for so many reasons, not least because babies 1-3 still wake me up every night, they … Continue reading When broodiness strikes…
“Aughhhh! I’m turning into my mother!” is a cry I often hear from despairing women, be it on their blog posts or when I’m out and about. (Yes, sometimes I do manage to leave the house these days!) When I hear these words I often wonder what these women have endured to make them feel … Continue reading I’m turning into my mother – and I couldn’t be prouder
‘I’m in a bit of bother’ I mumbled.

Party, Party, Party! That’s what our lives have become since having children. One glitter filled, sugar fuelled social event after another. And oh how we love to be plunged into a room of strangers and their hyperactive, sweaty, crying offspring. I particularly enjoy buying presents for a child/ren whom I have never met and so … Continue reading It’s my party and I’ll cry if I want to
