14th May: A cheeky biscuit thief

So it was my almost ex's almost birthday and I suggested we go out for lunch so that he could see the baby. Aren't I a good samaritan 👼 We went to Reds True Barbecue in Leeds and ordered a ridiculous quantity of food. I had mac and cheese balls to start (nice but I … Continue reading 14th May: A cheeky biscuit thief

13th May: Champion eater award please 🏆

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 🏆

Raising a strong little feminist 💪🏻

You know that old saying... I was the perfect parent until I had a child. This is one of those posts. I know I am technically a parent now but this little girl isn't quite old enough for me to be an expert on raising a strong little woman. However I might as well write … Continue reading Raising a strong little feminist 💪🏻

24th April: Haworth with my Honeybear

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

6th April: The babies rule the roost

Today we woke up feeling surprisingly good, my husband came over last night and was strangely helpful. Insisted I sit down and have a cup of tea while he washed up (amongst other things), this meant I woke up to a fairly tidy house for once. Even Frank was happy again. So anyway the sun … Continue reading 6th April: The babies rule the roost

Charity Shop Addict

My name is Sophie and I have a charity shopping problem. But I find so many good BARGAINS I'm going to try and show them off before I put them away so here is my selection from Selby (plus a couple of bits from Harrogate) Top row: Boden dress left (midi) £20 and above the … Continue reading Charity Shop Addict

Men-children everywhere

*ranty, sweary, negative, stereotyping and hastily written post* Now just to start this by saying it isn't a thinly veiled way of slagging off my husband. We are getting on relatively well at the moment and having spoken to some other women I am feeling (comparitevly) lucky. He was never abusive and as far as … Continue reading Men-children everywhere

3rd April: Living with the strawberry hat of dreams

Today I looked a bit shit, unwashed hair, minimal make up, didn't even wear a bra. How I look is irrelevant as no one can see past the strawberry hat of dreams. I'm not even joking, the attention this hat gets is ridiculous. I frequently walk into shops and the shop assistant will call the … Continue reading 3rd April: Living with the strawberry hat of dreams
