This week, I have been working on loads of new ideas for my blog and I’m so excited about how well things are going on my new website. I have had a new idea for a regular post, the first instalment will be on Monday so watch this space. I also had a real brainwave for my sister Emma’s new blog, and she also has her own fabulous and very focussed blog coming soon, so I will be sharing that information with you as soon as the curtains are lifted. For the girls, this week has mostly been about Christmas.…

Eek!! First post on my new blog! As you can see, all of my old posts have moved across, but they’re not looking wonderful. I’ve moved to my own website because in many ways Blogger was getting a little restrictive – a lot to do with user error I’m sure! So, here we are, all shiny and new! At long last, I can finally say that Lia is slowly getting a little better with her sleeping at night. She is still waking up, but it’s once or twice rather than numerous occasions. She is also getting into a slightly better…

This week has mostly been about sleep deprivation… again. Lia is very, very much a mummy’s girl, to the extent that last night I went out running for just over an hour. By the time I got back, she was absolutely beside herself, because she’d woken up and I wasn’t there. This made me feel terribly guilty for going out, and didn’t make for a particularly good night of sleep either, since she woke up several times in a panic before I even made it to bed. This led to yet another stupidly late night and, having been up twice…

Well, it’s been one hell of a week. We sadly lost our dog, Soxa on Tuesday. She had been with my husband for 13 years and therefore with me since we started living together. She had the most amazing character and was such a key part of our family that life will never be the same again. Soxa has been very much Libby’s dog for the past 12 months. She had slowed down in her old age and was just the right pace for Libby. They would walk around together whenever we walked the dogs, with Libby holding the lead…

Half term, even with two pre-schoolers is somewhat hectic at the best of times. During term time, we have a nice, easy little routine that involves a different club or activity each morning and a  nap in the afternoon. When it’s half term, this is all thrown a little out of kilter when the activities stop, and this week has been even more difficult because Libby had a tummy bug on Monday afternoon, forcing a day at home on Tuesday. We are rubbish at days at home and it involved far too much screen time watching nursery rhymes and Christmas…
