Moving Our Two Year Old From Cot To Toddler Bed

By | September 16th, 2016|Parenting, Uncategorized|4 Comments

BIG changes have happened here recently. After another really crappy week in the sleep department I had a bit of an epiphany. I was chatting to my cousin over a cuppa and jokingly suggested that moving little man from his cot to a toddler bed might help matters. Two minutes later I had made my [...]

November Update – What Is Going On In Our World?

Hello Lovely People,I have been a bit quiet here of late because my flippin' laptop is on the blink. By blink I mean that it is literally blinking. It turns on at random times and can stay on for five seconds, five minutes or maybe enough time to publish a blog post (if you are [...]

This blogging stuff is great fun. I've met a huge amount of interesting people along the way. I just love it. I read a load of blogs myself and I enjoy the social side of it, albeit it being mostly in the social media sense. A couple of months ago I attended the Irish Parenting [...]

It was my brothers going away party last weekend. He's moving to Germany for 18 months to work for the international office of the company he works for. He's doing so well for himself and he's only 23 so we are extremely proud of him. I attended the going away drinks on Saturday night with the [...]

Bye Bye Maternity Leave

By | July 20th, 2015|Parenting|1 Comment

It's all go around here these days. I spilled water on my laptop a few weeks ago and it's now sort of half broken. It will only turn on if it's left in the hotpress all night, but then when you turn it off it won't turn back on again unless you repeat the hotpress [...]

13 Months – A Tough Little Phase

By | July 14th, 2015|Parenting|3 Comments

We're going through a very weird stage at the moment. This post was supposed to be purely about the massive event that has been me returning to work after 13 months of maternity leave, but I can't in good conscience not mention the realities of this stage of parenting. I don't even know how to explain [...]

RECIPE l Sweet Potato And Coconut Soup

You know when you just get something in to your head and there's no telling you? Well I've been flirting with this soup idea for a while now. It's not even particularly creative, but I wanted to recreate a certain type of soup that I totally obsess over when I come across it in a [...]

I've been trying to write this post for weeks now. I wanted it to be a good post, lots of photos, and a nice tribute to the all important first birthday party of my beautiful son. I was nearly losing sleep over it. I didn't want to forget any of the things that I had [...]

A Year Of This

Exactly a week from today is the 9th June 2015. My 7 pound 12oz little baby boy will be a one year old. I want next week to be about him and the celebration, and so I thought this would be a good time to have my own little "moment". It feels huge. I call it "this" [...]

Our A&E Experience

By | May 25th, 2015|Parenting|6 Comments

We had a little situation last week where we ended up in A&E with Billy. Of course it wasn't a pleasant experience, but thankfully it had a positive outcome. I wasn't going to mention it here, but then I remembered that I was actually googling things like a maniac when we were trying to decide what [...]
