So this morning saw me sending my eldest, E, to school to sit her first Yr 6 SAT exam. One of the most ridiculous things about our education system seems to be the idea that our children must be tested at every stage in order to "track their progress." Now most of us know that… Continue reading SATS are coming!
So recently I've been feeling like a bit of a failure if I'm honest, maybe it's the weather making me feel crappy being so up and down or maybe it's just that I'm slowly coming to the end of my maternity leave? You see when I started my Maternity I had big plans, huge (slightly… Continue reading Beating myself up…
You know the drill by now people I'm awake doing night feeds (why has she started waking up again?!) (a completely different post that one 🙄) so I browse my fave websites and fantasy shop what I'd get if that money tree was at the bottom of the garden or if we did indeed win… Continue reading Fantasy Shop Marks and Spencer’s
Monday was day #1 of the half term holidays and saw us go to a new place we hadn't been before (apart from a school trip I went on about 20+ years ago) I first got the idea for this trip browsing on Facebook and I came across a event they were doing called Junior… Continue reading Half Term Fun – Thackary Medical Museum
My High Street wish list this week, going to try and make this a "thing" on here. Such great clothes around at the minute and with no money tree at the bottom of the garden the least I can do is take pictures and post the links so hopefully some of you can buy them… Continue reading My High Street Wish List
So I wake up this morning the mother of an ELEVEN year old. I'm not sure how this happened or when but there it is. My eldest daughter is 11. This is something of a surprise to me as I imagine it is to most parents, that your children just wander off one day and… Continue reading Daughter, you are 11!
A cold but sunny day at Brodsworth Hall (again) RebeccaXx
So here we are, 2018. 2018. Just letting that sink in. I can't believe that at all. It was only 2 minutes ago that I was excitedly seeing in 2016 thinking it was my wedding year surely?! Not a whole 2 years?! Last year for us was HUGE we moved into our house right at… Continue reading A new year, not a new me….
Yesterday started off pretty crappy, I had to have a word with Ms teacher because she came out of school crying saying her 1 friend (she only really gets attached to one person at a time) said she needed a break from her and went to play with another kid which resulted in M having… Continue reading Winging it SEN style….
Here we are on the 12th December already! Didn't realise just how far we had got into December until M asked me this morning what door to open on her advent calendar (cue minor breakdown about all the stuff I still need to do before the big day) Speaking of Advent Calendars I have decided… Continue reading My problem with Advent Calendars 🌲🙈
