A busy week of firsts! – Little Loves

It has been a busy week this week, starting a new routine with the girls both starting at their new school and preschool. Georgie is attending a small local primary school and went straight into full days on Monday morning, and it has been a great success. Lydia started preschool on Wednesday and went again Friday, with much excitement. She just turned two and a half… Continue Reading “A busy week of firsts! – Little Loves”

A bit of a mixed week – Little Loves

I have been reading #LittleLoves posts on a few blogs for a while now and have really enjoyed them, as they give a little glimpse into what is going on in the everyday lives of bloggers. I decided I would try to join in most weeks and as I was horribly ill yesterday I’m going to start today, a day late, instead (oops!).

To put it bluntly: her nappies are really quite unpleasant lately, and there are various items… Continue Reading “Poorly but demanding!”

Here are some of my other favourites from this year, I think the selection reveals my odd tastes a little bit! My second favourite performance from all of the semi finals/final was Martyn Crofts and his cheese grater darleks! I have a mega soft spot… Continue Reading “My Favourite Britain’s Got Talent 2012 Acts!”

Raa Raa the Noisy Lion

Although we do try to avoid using the “electronic babysitter”, sometimes the temptation of a ten minute cbeebies break can’t be denied – if only to keep the scamp out of mischief while I whiz around the room tidying up the toys or swapping the laundry over. A lot of stuff on the cbeebies channel has me left with a bewildered expression on my face, or is… Continue Reading “Raa Raa the Noisy Lion”
