So I’m back to work. It’s been about 8 weeks now, although I’ve had a lovely 2 weeks off for Easter! Work actually feels more normal than I thought it would. Don’t get me wrong I still feel great anxieties about my capabilities in balancing motherhood and a stressful job. However, when I’ve been at … More Back to work, back to reality….

So me and the hubby have been wondering why our boy has suddenly been playing up. It’s honestly like living with a teenager not a nearly 5 year old!

My heart strings pulled as I dropped my baby girl off at nursery. As I passed her over she looked at … More It’s been emotional….
So my baby decided to stop breastfeeding. Hang on a minute, aren’t I supposed to be the one to wean her off breastfeeding? But no, overnight, just like that, after all that hard work, my baby girl decides it’s over. At 9 1/2 months old. This is not what I expected at all. We’re currently … More My breastfeeding story

Very proud … More My weekly happy list
It’s the weirdest feeling knowing when your having your baby. No living on the edge wondering when that spontaneous labour will start. It’s one of the hardest decisions I’ve made. Going from being determined to have a VBAC (a term I’d never heard of before) to having a planned c-section. It’s a decision I couldn’t … More My baby girl
So it’s here, the night before my return to work. The 2nd February has arrived! Typically I am poorly with a cold and cough. Surprisingly I have a ‘lets just get on with it’ attitude. So I’m ill, so I’m going back to work, it’s happening, let’s just do this! I feel this is my … More Working mum countdown day 1 !!
