We survived…..

We survived…..

The house is still standing and so are we! An exceptionally busy few weeks in preparation of our Ten Year Wedding Anniversary, but it ended in great success. Well I hope it did anyway. There wasn’t another thing I could have done to make the party go any different/better, the effort I put in was every ounce I have. My tribe of small people made me so very proud. They worked their little socks off too, and I am so privileged to have people with such huge hearts that call me Mama.

Ten Years On

Ten Years On

Ten years ago today, I hadn’t slept a wink. I was nervous, excited and downright terrified. In a matter of hours I was going to be a wife. As is tradition, I stayed with my amazing family the night before, spending hours reminiscing and putting the world to rights. The following morning was spent hugging some of the most precious people in my life. From that day to this, with the exception of some much loved new additions, those people haven’t changed.

Life Fails without pigtails.

Suncream Fails. We’ve all had them. That awful feeling when you or worse still, your baby is more well done than blue. Unfortunately for Thing 1, she has inherited my skin, suffering from the same sun affliction as I do. It doesn’t seem to matter how much sun cream is blathered on (that feeling makes me want to vom) the inherited carrot top, freckle adorned skin we share, turns from blue to pink to scarlet in the blink of an eye.

The Lyrics of Married Life

The craziest thing of all, is over ten years has gone by and I’m still standing!!! There are days I question how to be fair, as with any marriage all the roads we have to walk are winding, but 3 kids, 5 houses and 2 ninja kittens later, and I’m quite sure together, we will go all the way.

My Blog and I – readership or really sh*t?

Increasing mummy/daddy/family/any one will do readership is my mission, even if I’ve misplaced the instruction book/have no idea how to/didn’t even know microblogging was a thing and low and behold I’m just a Mum standing (sitting) in front of an iPad – hoping you’ll love me. Bloody loved that film. I am in the throes of instagram, twitter, facebook, wordpress, bloglovin’ and Pinterest!!! I didn’t even know half of these things existed, and my widgets have gone to shit since my fraternising with the Button of Doom, god knows how I am going to add that list of media options to my footer, is it my footer? Oh and apparently my footer has too much padding…..haven’t we all? I feel as though I have quite literally spent the last 12 hours of my life on my tip toes on a box, waving vigorously at a crowd of tiny specs I can just about see across the desert that is the t’interweb.

The #gymselfie queen of Instagram experiment

The #gymselfie queen of Instagram experiment

So my #gymselfie social experiment on instagram has been a huge success. Well, not huge as I am yet to make it “big”, but proof enough that my theory on life (Insta) is indeed correct. Huge shout out to anyone who enjoys or puts up with my waffle – I thank you for sticking by me. Feel free to say Hello, drop me a message or comment, like, retweet, post, share, or even delete if you feel the need 😂.
