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.

We are rubbish at days at home and it involved far too much screen time watching nursery rhymes and Christmas…

On Saturday, we spent the day in London, visiting the poppies at the Tower of London. It was a lovely day, but exhausting for us all and we got back home very late.  On Monday morning, I put in an offer on the house and it was accepted on the condition that it would remain on the market until we sold ours. So then it was all…

Every week since Lia was born, I have been posting a photo of my two girls together. The more I think about it, the more delighted I am about the photographic record of them growing up together. I also keep wondering when it will be that the girls go off each other! Yesterday, I ordered a personalised letter from Santa for both girls. One of the options for the letter was to add in a little note to say well done to the child for something in particular, or to give them a special message. I sat and thought about…
