Pablo The Perfect Puppy my gorgeous cockapoo

Oh so my most wonderful, fantastically beautiful Pablo The Perfect Puppy has arrived to join The Mad House. He is truly, truly scrumptious. I know I am totally biased, but I am almost sure he is the cutest cockapoo puppy in the world…..EVER!

I appreciate that this is a similar principle to me thinking Team Twiglet were the cutest babies in the world too. Although to be fair, the twins had slight alien qualities I was grateful they grew out of. And very grateful Josh is finally growing in to his ears. He can show Pablo how its done!

Pablo The Perfect Puppy has settled in so well so far. I am still learning the rules and haven’t got the pee thing nailed, but other than the occasional warm soggy foot in a missed patch of pee, we are getting on like the besties I had hoped to become.

It is crazy how much love I have bubbling in me for my new four legged friend.

Happy Birthday to Me

He is hands down he best thing that I have ever been nuts enough to do. Well, obviously the twin thing was the best and most wonderfully crazy thing I have ever done (mums of multiples I salute you) and bloody loved it. So much so, BossBaby bounced onto the scene before the twinnies turned 3.

We have toyed with the idea of a dog to complete our family for a good few years, and I am so so so happy we have finally taken the plunge and I am now a dog mum too!

I hope Dog Mums have a naughty table though, I am not great at the correct protocol in anything in life. I am the awkward, geeky, over enthusiastic waffler sat in the corner hoping my normal “I’m knackered” expression doesn’t resemble a resting bitch face.

We need all the help, tips and advice going folks, please send them our way! I feel like a proper impersonator at this dog thingy, but I hope I am getting the hang of it!

I can’t wait until he’s big enough to go for walkies and to experience all the firsts in his life. I so miss the days when everything in life was exciting for The Twiglets. Although I am truly loving seeing them grow into actual real life people, the little broody twang needed silencing in a way that didn’t involve my body disagreeing with another pregnancy.

Handy Tip

Aim high, go in clucking for another baby (which is physically ill advised and dangerous to this little ol body of mine) and somehow a dog makes The Hubs feel like he won. it is all about “managing the situation” to quote a good friend of mine.

Hubs – consider yourself managed. Move over, theres a new man in my life, it was love at first sight,

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.

Grout me up Baby!

Grout me up Baby!

Hello Monday! Today marks the beginning of What could be a potentially an ever so stressful week. We are hoping to achieve the impossible! The mountain of House Jobs piling up around my ears is eye watering. I have absolutely no hope of getting through even the top 5, so I am now prioritising the absolute essentials that need completing/attempting before the party. As its safety first, I am endeavouring to fix the patio. I currently regret inheriting the gene I have from my ever so talented Poppa Bear aka The Bicycle Repair Man aka Bob the Builder. If Poppa can’t fix it, no one can! But very annoyingly, he is mid-build so Dora the Explorer (ie me) is having to lug exceptionally heavy tiles around, whilst YouTubing how to grout. This is not something I have attempted before, but I am going to add it to the exceptionally long list of things I have learnt how to do considering I married an accountant. Ten whole years ago on Thursday! Wowsers trousers, I cant work out if my astonishment comes from being impressed or down right shocked we’ve survived this long!

Here goes…

Ah ha! This is it, I am online! Well, I hope I am….


First off, thank you for taking the time to pop along to my site. I have huge dreams of successfully showing the world my creations, but alas, as I’m sure others can relate, I have had “the fear” holding me back.
