Being Mummy

Oh Boy..

Growing up I always knew I wanted to have children, but when I visualised those children they were always girls. I always saw myself as a girl mum. I pictured frilly dresses, Barbie houses, pink bedrooms and dolly prams. When I was pregnant with Theo and found out he was, in fact, a boy I… Continue reading Oh Boy..

Being Mummy

Noah is here..

Well it’s been a long time since I’ve written anything down and I really miss it, as this is a bit of an outlet for me. I’m sure I get more out of writing these than anyone who reads them but thought I would do a little series of blogs to catch up on what… Continue reading Noah is here..

My month.. January 

So as a change of pace I thought that I'd do a run down of stuff that's big in my little world each month. So here we go for January.. I'm using - Frank Body scrub, literally this is life changing. Comes in the cutest packaging (complete this time with sexy shower cap) and is… Continue reading My month.. January

After I was diagnosed with cancer, he was tiny, insignificant in fact. Everyone I talked to or who came to see me, everyone who called or texted,… Continue reading The elephant..


The man who bangs the table..

Theo is terrified of 'the man who bangs the table'. When he hears him, he freezes, eyes wide and immediately grabs my hand. When we are out and about, if he hears a banging noise, he immediately reaches for me, and whispers 'the man, banging the table'. Its his biggest fear. The man who bangs… Continue reading The man who bangs the table..

At Home


      We were lucky to escape so far... but we've been hit. I imagine Theo and his lack of respect for the personal space of other children is the one to blame. As he spends the vast majority of his life kissing me, licking me, shoving his fingers into my mouth and smushing my… Continue reading Cold..
