It was just after I turned 25 when I received the letter asking me to book my first smear test. At that time I was expecting Ava and understood you couldn't have one while pregnant so I tossed the letter away and didn't think much more of it. I got a second letter shortly after… Continue reading How I learnt the hard way NOT to delay a smear test
I have been tagged by the lovely Robyn from coldcuppaclub.com to complete 'The (Not Big or Fat) Quiz of The Year'. Here we go! What was the highlight of 2016? Although I said 2016 was a bit tough, it also brought some wonderful moments for myself and my family. I can't possibly pick just one so… Continue reading The (not big or Fat) Quiz of The year
Happy New Year everyone! We have survived and escaped 2016 (an odd year, I don't want to say completely awful, but really not the best for most people) and have entered the wonderful new beginnings of 2017. I used to absolutely cringe at people's 'new years resolutions' and 'new year, new me' crap, but for… Continue reading New Year New Me?
After weeks of feeling flat as a pancake and generally a bit 'meh', I woke up this morning and was determined to have a good day.

I stood on the scales this morning after weeks of avoiding them. I knew it would be bad, but I was still shocked. I have forever struggled with my weight (in other words, I'm a chubby lass!).

Before you read on please bear in mind the following are NOT REAL people and this post is not intended to… Continue reading Which school mum are you?
It is my beautiful Mum's birthday and I wanted to write a quick post about how much she means to me. I won't be seeing her today as she is WAY too busy sunning herself in Tenerife (so selfish of course!) I came into this earth when Mumsy was only SEVENTEEN years old. Now that… Continue reading An Open Letter to my Mum
It was August 30th and we were SO excited to be going to Majorca! It was just what we needed to end the school holidays and myself, Dan, Lucas and Ava had been looking forward to it for weeks. Just before, we all caught a HORRIFIC sickness bug so I was hoping and praying that… Continue reading Our Holiday To Majorca
Welcome to my first blog post. Sat here with my laptop cross legged on the sofa, kiddies in bed, fiancé sprawled next to me suffering from man-flu and e-cig on stand by (terrible/occasional habit)... I begin. For years I have followed and enjoyed all types of blogs, mostly mummy/parenting pages. Reading to gain advice, laugh… Continue reading First blog post/Introduction
