Wow! I can't believe the last time I blogged on here was July! Can we firstly address how fast time seems to be going. It's Jan 2019 now for goodness sake! Literally blinked and we have changed years. So much has changed since I last put a post up and I feel it's only right… Continue reading One big catch up!
We get asked constantly about Noahs eyes. If they will get better, why he shakes his head, why he stands so close to the tv or why he actually needs his glasses. We always try to answer these questions as politely and as well as we can without going on a tangent about every issue… Continue reading Noahs eye problems.
The only boy I have ever lived with has been dad. Which doesn't really count because he did everything and I was not in charge of a small person and/or a house. Oh how things have changed and oh how weird they are. Boys are soo weird! The thought processes they have are weird, the… Continue reading Living with a boy update.

A girl can dream though).… Continue reading Cybex Pallas 2 Review.
There isn't much I wish for in life, perhaps a new car and an unlimited supply of cheese, but those aside there isn't much else. When I had the boys and realised I was doing this alone and the father of the children I just birthed wouldn't be around, I wished that one day someone… Continue reading A whole year of love.
New year new me.. probably not. I imagine I will still be the same gin loving, sarcastic, anxious mess I was in 2017 and 2016 and so on. Sure there are little goals I would like to achieve this year but whether I will actually do them is yet to be seen. Here's hoping. So… Continue reading 2018.
