Guilt is a fickle thing, it comes in many forms and is never really accepted in any. I have often felt guilty about menial things such as not letting a driver out from a road because I was in a rush, or putting chips on for tea as I couldn’t be bothered making anything decent or sitting down with a cup of tea and playing a game of candy crush when I should be cleaning/cooking/tidying/washing etc etc.
Everyday myself and my daughter would sit at the table and create something, or go out into the garden and play or plant some seeds or bake something but since baby #2 has arrived I have found it increasingly more difficult to do those eveŕyday and have found that I am only able to do them with her every now and then, as #2 is extremely clingy it basically means we can’t do them. All the things I used to do with #1, #2 is not able to do yet, and most definitely will not allow me to do them unless #2 is having a nap. I feel so sorry for my eldest, she has had to be sidelined on many an occasion as my youngest is either tired, hungry, needs his nappy changed or just won’t let go of me. Continue reading
This week, we have been extremely busy, we’ve had my parens come to stay with us for the week, we’ve had a Christening of which I was asked to be ‘Guardian’ (see next post for the story behind that one), a Carnival, Medieval day, Supersonic sandcastle building, and visits to the National Botanical gardens of Wales, Iron age fort and a bit of tidying up in the middle!

I wish I had started blogging when you were still growing in my tummy, I’m ashamed to say that I have forgotten lots about that magical time in my life, carrying you for 41 weeks and watching you grow within me was a wonderful experience. You made yourself known from 17 weeks and kicked every time I moved quickly or sat for long periods. The most vivid memory of carrying you was when I ate mushrooms! You either liked them or hated them as every time I ate them you did somersaults in my tummy. Continue reading
I have just read an article on Netmums about eating out with children and how difficult it is to find places that offer decent, healthy food for kids and I completely agree. Here’s the article: http://www.netmums.com/coffeehouse/general-coffeehouse-chat-514/news-current-affairs-topical-discussion-12/960758-kid-s-menus-full-burgers-chicken-nuggets.html#post9520377 Continue reading
By the time I was 30 I expected to be in a decent happy job, have a family, nice house and car and be pretty content with life. As it turns out when I turned 30 I had 1 child, lived in an ok house (shame about the neighbours though…proper chavs! But then what do you expect when you buy a house in a council estate!), we did have 1 nice car but then 1 complete wreck. So all in all not too bad but it has taken a lot to get to that point.
