All the kinds of Mother.

Some of us are Mothers through choice, some of us are Mothers by accident. Some of us would love to be a Mother, but not yet, some of us long to be a Mother, but things don’t always work out like that. Some of us have plans, but being a Mother isn’t one of them….

Tiptoe Craft Desk Update.

The craft corner is perhaps the most used area of the house, certainly by the girls that is. If we had to get rid of every single toy, as long as the supply cupboard was well stocked, I’m not sure Nancy and Eula would be all that concerned, it’s a very industrious corner, a constant…

Dinosaurs, cake and crying.

Children are such oddities aren’t they, you provide them with the means to have a  totally fab day, all the things they love, but they sabotage it with their peculiar ways. Today is Eula’s 3rd birthday, i’m sure if you asked her she will tell you she’s had a great day, I will look back…

Life goes on.

Hello my lovelies, it’s been a bit of a while, again! Since I last did some writing here I’ve turned another year older and I do actually feel a tiny little bit wiser! I’ve decided to try and not sweat the small stuff, each day I need to think about all the wonderful things I have in…

Dotcom Gift Shop parcel of treats.

It’s always lovely to get a knock on the door and be handed a big parcel of wonderful treats, lately the only things that seem to arrive at our house are wooden floor samples and bills, but today is an exception. The lovely people at Dotcom Gift Shop have sent the girls some wonderful Summer…

A place to play, Penrice Birth Centre.

The rejuvenation project at Penrice is an ongoing thing, done on voluntary time and so it isn’t always possible to just bosh out an idea, crack on and get it done and dusted as quickly as we’d all like, it takes time, discussions, group decisions…and a lot of patience, I’m not very good at this patience thing, you may…

Half term hang out.

It’s half term and the week has been long and short and lovely and irksome all in one. I thought I’d stop by quickly and let you know what we’ve been up to. I’m sorry this is just a quick half update but I’m feeling quite distracted from blogging at the moment and I’m just…

Hana Baby – Blog

I’m now the resident blogger over at Hana Baby, where I will be chatting all things Mummy. Quite a broad subject, let’s see where it takes us. Pop over and have a look, my debut post is about Breastfeeding in a sling. http://www.hanababy.co.uk/blog1

Why?

How do you raise strong willed, wild and powerful little women without going slightly mad yourself? I’m not sure you can. On the one hand you want to encourage their big characters, help them explore their own minds, opinions and individuality. But on the other just doing something without questioning why sounds like such a…

One day to the next.

Oh what a difference a day makes. Yesterday after I collected Nancy from Preschool I thought sod it, yes it may be raining, yes it may be cold. But we are getting out. We’re going to the beach and we’re making the best of our free time. And we were rewarded with this… One of…

Tiny inspiration.

As I move closer to the fun part of decorating Eula’s room, the main bulk of painting is done, just the woodwork left, I find myself shopping around for inspiration. I stand in a very tiny white box and wonder what it can become. Already just by painting over the Farrow&Ball Green Ground it has…

Christmas passes once more.

Christmas is passing once more and I find myself looking back at a magical few weeks, made more special by childhood memories brought back to life through two little girls. For the second year running we took part in the Lostwithiel Christmas Pageant, much to my little exhibitionist’s delight. Lostwithiel, the town my parents live…
