Why oh why did I feel so guilty for taking two days off work to take care of my sick daughter? I’m lucky working for the NHS as I can use emergency parental leave days for when the children are poorly, which are fully paid. You can have up to 10 a year if needed, … More Why do I feel so guilty? Time off work when your child is sick
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!

Today we went to my friends sons birthday party. It was fancy dress so my boy donned his batman outfit that he got from Father Christmas. We’ve moved on from the pirate costume now, which I think he has worn to the last 4 parties! When we arrived we had that ‘OMG it is fancy … More Working mum countdown day 16
So my baby went to her second nursery settling in day today and apparently she was ‘more sensitive’ today. What that means is that she cried, a few times. I had forgotten to tell them she had been under the weather so explained this might have been the reason. Or was it because she … More Working mum countdown day 21
This is a lovely cake post christmas as not too fattening but still not 100% good either !! Great as a snack or as a pudding for adults and children alike.
