Soxa is one of those dogs. She’s one of those dogs that is accident prone, always has some sort of health issues, takes medicine to stop her from leaking wee (that sometimes works but not always) and always goes the wrong side of a lamp post when she’s on the lead. But most of all, she’s one of those dogs that rolls in fox muck at every available opportunity. Filthy animal. So that’s why I was pretty delighted when I was offered the opportunity to review some fabulous ScruffyChops sugar doggy shampoo and ScruffyChops muddy marvellous conditioner.  Soxa, on the…

Despite being delighted I’ve got Libby and equally delighted that my next offspring will be here next year, I’m absolutely certain there won’t be any more after that. The fact that we will have two  children quite close together in age and the fact that there will be no more are both for a purely selfish reason. I want my life back. Before getting pregnant with Libby, I was doing all sorts of sport, most recently some quite big triathlons. Whilst I managed to get back into running and swimming a bit after having Libby and did a couple of…

For my 100th blog post, I wanted to do something a bit different and I’d like other people to join in. I haven’t done a linky post for this month, so if you’d like to take my centennial challenge, I’d love to see your take on it so please do link up below.  Here’s how it works. Take my 10 headings and change the 10 words in each section to words of your own. Sentences, lists, jokes, however you want to do it, 10 words only per section. Then pop a link at the bottom, have a read of some…

I’ve never been very good at winter. Actually, I don’t mind the weather outside, brisk walks in the snow, sunny days when the ground is crisp from frost. I can even cope with the rain and wind as long as I’m out in the fresh air. The part about winter that gets to me is the inside bit. I hate having the heating on unnecessarily or having it on too high but I also hate being cold.  Whilst I’m not the most sociable or fashion conscious person, even I didn’t manage to miss the onesie trend that started a few…

Usually when I hear from Macmillan books, they are asking me to review one of their fabulous children’s books with Libby. That’s why I was so pleased when this time, they asked me to review a book that was one for me to read!  Reasons My Kid is Crying by Greg Pembroke is a fabulous book that was published as a result of a photograph that Greg Pembroke had published online. The photograph was of his toddler in the depths of a tantrum, caused by the fact that he had broken his piece of cheese. Understandably, many parents related to this…

When I was pregnant with Libby, my morning sickness consisted of being sick every morning, after which I felt pretty much ok for the rest of the day. This time I unfortunately haven’t been so lucky.  I knew my morning sickness was going to be worse this time when I felt ill really early on in the pregnancy, probably at about 5 weeks. I was feeling nauseous all the time and being sick at random times during the day, which made looking after a 16 month old (and associated nappy changing) a total nightmare.  I was lucky enough to be…
