I know this is ridiculously late, but I got ridiculously lazy. I know it's technically Father's Day weekend but my friend wished me a happy dual parenting day and I fucking loved that 💪🏻 We did father's day with my dad on the Saturday as he didn't realise it was fathers day and made plans … Continue reading 15th – 16th June: Dual Parenting Day
If you are an avid subscriber and have very little to fill your memory space you may remember I bought this cheap wooden walker which seemed really sturdy and heavy but started tipping and scared me. So I found this on Facebook marketplace for £5 which is much better. One of my friends did actually … Continue reading 29th May: Treat yo’self
This is a really boring one, feel free to ignore. I just feel like I need to do an entry for every day as I told myself I would...which is stupid. But anyhoo: It was my last counselling session, after ten sessions I feel like I should have some profound learnings to report back on … Continue reading 22nd May: Counselling and Pizza
Cars are bastards. You look after them and love them and use them as cribs to gently lull your precious one to sleep and then the bastards get to 100k miles and demand a new cambelt. Bastards. They don't care that you're on the last portion of maternity leave with ZERO income and your husband … Continue reading 21st May: Armouring myself for a food tour of Leeds
I used to have an I ❤️ NY hoodie. It was great. I spent a summer in America after university working at Indian Head Camp. Four of us went travelling around the East Coast area for a bit afterwards but because of pick ups and drop offs we ended up staying in Manhattan three times. … Continue reading 16th May: I ❤️ York
I wanted to rush and get the food shopping done before my Dad arrived to help us out for the day. This is dangerous as if my car goes near a McDonald's before 10.30 it automatically pulls into the car park and ejects me. Once I was out of the car staring at the golden … Continue reading 13th May: Champion eater award please 🏆
I'm currently sat in the car, in the rain...again. Sleeping Beauty is in the back and we are outside the house. We left in a big rush because my little friend wanted a lie in but I wanted to go to my single mums Gingerbread meet up in York. I was trying to be efficient … Continue reading 9th May: Banana, gingerbread, bargains, brownies, poo, baths, more banana and some giggles
Another day in York so obviously I made sure to have my phone with me. I've been feeling a bit down this week and was due to meet a friend, when she messaged me mirroring a few things I was thinking I thought sod it...let's use my afternoon tea vouchers and have a treat. Carpe … Continue reading 3rd May: Bloody LOADS of photos
My phone cable conspired against me yesterday and wasn't plugged in properly overnight. When I set off in the morning I had less than 10% battery 😱 Luckily I was on time and found my friends at the train station as planned so didn't really need it. And it meant I didn't have the opportunity … Continue reading 2nd May: No bloody photos
How the flippity do is it May tomorrow?? (can you see that I am reducing my swearing to make up for the other day) Today we went to Leeds and I didn't get lost. You will know this if you follow me on any social media as I haven't stopped banging on about it. I … Continue reading 30th April: Hipster donuts and Highland cattle
Today I'm trying to focus on all the advantages of being single and make the most out of my maternity leave. The daily diaries are really driving home how I don't have much time left and when I'm back at work (and Emily is probably walking around) I probably won't bother with museum days out.I've … Continue reading 24th April: Haworth with my Honeybear
Once we were in there was high drama, every part of the outfit was coated. She also slid and crawled her way around the changing table so that it was a naked slippery yellow disaster zone.
I woke up determined not to wallow in self pity in what could potentially be a thoroughly shitty day.
