Calling It Quits And Saying Goodbye…

I’ll keep it short and sweet, mainly because the baby is asleep on one arm. 😂 I’m hanging up my blogging boots. For now anyway. Social media can be a positive fun place there’s no doubt, but it can also be mentally draining, and for me it’s just time to step down for personal reasons. It’s been an experience since I started 4 or 5 years ago. I’ve been on trips I’ll never forget and I’ve met some amazing people. I’ve laughed. I’ve cried. More than anything I’ve always been mystified at the size of my blogs following and why in Gods name anyone reads what I write. 😂 Anyway, […]

It’s Just A Phase…

Baby 3 was 12 weeks old this week. 3 months old. I’m blinking and another month is going by I swear. Life is insanely busy hence the dust that has been gathering on my blog a bit! Like with a lot of babies, I spend a decent portion of my day trying to figure out what he wants. I’ve quickly realised that even though this is my third child I generally still haven’t a clue what I’m doing. He’s cutting a tooth. I swore it was my imagination. I could see the white dot under his gum weeks ago. But it’s cutting through at the moment and he’s dribbling buckets. […]

One Of Those Days…

We’re coming to the end of the 2 week Easter break and we’re all still alive. I call that a win. They’ve had playdates and we’ve done play centres and we’ve watched movies and ate chocolate and they’ve played outside and they’ve made forts. However, as the end of the second week draws near, the cracks of no routine are starting to show. I’m wilting. They’re wilting. The lack of routine is starting to make them whiny and my brain has completely gone to absolute mush. One eye might be starting to twitch slightly. They’re everywhere. All day. Someone wants me for something, constantly. They are always hungry. I can’t […]

I Am Drowning In Kids…

Oh My God. 3 kids is CRAZY. 😂 Who knew going from 2 to 3 would be such a MASSIVE difference! I am laughing at my naive attitude during my pregnancy – “Sure what’s one more..” HA! The last 4 weeks have gone in a whirlwind of bottles, nappies, night feeds, sleep deprivation (Oh God I forgot how bad that is), recoiling in horror when I look in the mirror, school runs, juggling attention when there’s one of me and three of them, coffee, piles of washing, breaking up fights, wine, coffee, piles of more washing, up the back shits, more washing, more fights, more coffee, …. Of course there’s […]

Netflix Catch Up…

Netflix has been my saviour over the last month I have to say! While I was holed up in the Coombe for 5 days in the pre-labour ward with nothing but time on my hands and the occasional bouts of pure insanity, Netflix kept me going. I’d gotten my husband to download some bits for me and I would have been completely lost without it. I watched the entire 4th season of Grace & Frankie in there. It was brilliant! As always it’s not long enough and I already can’t wait for Season 5…. If there is one… has it been renewed for a Season 5?? I hope so! I […]

A Family Of 5…

Day 3 at home. All 5 of us are still alive so we’re not doing too bad. I feel and look like I’ve been dragged through about 70 hedges backwards and upside down but getting there. Lost my prescription when I got home so took a few phone calls and a fax from the hospital to the local chemist but I’m back up and running in the drugs department. The kids reluctantly went back to school yesterday after 7 days off being orphaned out to relatives while I was imprisoned. I was fairly impressed that we managed to get lunches made and get them sorted and out the door on […]

Steroids In My Ass & Other Fun Things…

Firstly, if there’s a whole bunch of spelling mistakes it’s because I’m typing this on my phone from my hospital bed so bare with me.. 😊 This morning I had my latest check up in the clinic. I’m 38+1. I’d been told they would most likely induce me or break my waters at this stage with the Gestational Diabetes but at the same time I wasn’t sure of a definite plan so I was excited and nervous and curious coming in here today. Well, it all turned in to a bit of a crap fest fairly fast to be honest. 😂 So baby is oblique again. This is exactly what […]
