When Poppy Met Santa

No Christmas would be complete without a visit to Santa and as this is Poppy’s first Christmas and Ella is starting to get excited about Christmas we decided to get in to the Christmas spirit and pay the big fella and his elves a visit.

Why I Hate Mornings

I hate mornings. It’s not that I’m not a morning person. Far from it in fact. I usually jump out of bed fairly happily and once I’ve had a cuppa I’m ready to start the day. It’s the saga of school mornings that I detest. You would think that an 8 year old would be… Continue reading Why I Hate Mornings

Keeping Mum

I’ll start this with a bit of a disclaimer. When I first started blogging, it was about being honest and being myself.

Thankfully, I have finally got through the massive pack of Pampers which we bought as they were… Continue reading Bottoms Up To Christmas!

Let It Go!

It’s 2013 and a couple of days before Christmas. The big one, then aged 5 and I have just got back from the cinema having seen Frozen, or Frost as she insists on calling it, which has just come out at the cinema. The cinema was packed and so we ended up going to a… Continue reading Let It Go!

Five of The Best Advent Calendar Fillers

I always thought the point of an advent calendar was to count down to Christmas, having a little chcolate and Christmas picture everyday until Christmas Day finally arrived. Now though, the chocolate is mostly crap, unless it’s Cadburys, you don’t get a picture anymore and then there’s the stupidly priced advent calendars filled with toys.… Continue reading Five of The Best Advent Calendar Fillers
