Boo Roo and Tigger Too {February 2016}

March 6, 2016

Life seems to pass me by at an alarming rate at the moment. I spent most of the last week completely confused about which day of the week it was. I’d love to blame it on being out of sync due the half term holidays, however, I think it’s a combination of baby brain and me getting old.

The days pass by so quickly that I find it hard to recall what happened  yesterday, never mind last week. I feel as though I’m missing out on precious memories which is why I am thankful I have my blog to collate all the things we do.

Boo Roo and Tigger Too {February 2016}

A close up of a sign


Finally after months of waiting I have received my ‘at risk of redundancy‘ letter from work. The letter felt quite cold and impersonal considering it took them so long to contact me and the rest of my work colleagues. It’s going to be a long process and I’m not convinced that I will get the voluntary redundancy that I want.

At home I’ve been attempting to get into a routine between school runs, after school clubs, looking after Piglet and keeping the house straight. There are days when I feel I am winning, then other days where I have achieved nothing – but I am getting there.

Her enthusiasm for joining in with school activities doesn’t seem to be wavering. She has signed herself up for both dance and choir parts in a summer production at one of our local theatres.

During a recent trip to Cadbury World during half term, I’m not sure who was more excited about the prospect of a chocolate filled day. Both Roo and I were dancing in the car as Mr Boo drove up the driveway to the iconic building. Needless to say, the pot (or two) of melted chocolate went down very well.

She is currently sporting two very bruised knees from where she slipped at a Cub Scout activity last week. She must have fallen with some force as her entire knee caps are purple! – I’m not sure that she will be wanting to do street dance again anytime soon.


My cheeky little boy seems to have grown in confidence over the past month. Both in terms of his cheekiness which can land him in trouble and in his actions. He has never been a boisterous boy but recently he has realised he can jump and bounce off things without hurting himself and finds it quite funny too.

With a recent trip to his beloved Thomas Land, he loved going from ride to ride – although he still isn’t brave enough to try out Cranky.

I can’t believe that my little baby girl is now three months old – how did that happen? Her earlier struggles with trapped wind seem to have eased and she is much more settled. She has a better day when things are structured just like Roo and Tigger did as babies so I’m trying to keep to a routine even if it means waking her for a feed during the day.

Touchwood she is sleeping between 10-12 hours on a night which is fantastic. It’s lovely to have her more alert during the day and is always full of smiles.

She coped well on our first few family outings over half term and to Thomas Land, although she slept in her pram most of the time we were out and about.

So that was our February – what did you get up to?

    wow 10-12 hours is amazing, I have been through the redundancy process and it is awful, I found it traumatic so I know how you feel, I hope it is resolved sooner rather than later x

    Sorry about the redundancy letter hope all works out for you. Sounds like you had a lovely February and a baby who sleeps that long is every mothers dream

    I think it sounds like you are doing an amazing job, and if it makes you feel any better, I had to ask my husband what day it was this morning, so it is not just you!

    3 months old is such a lovely age, when they start to be more aware of their surroundings, seeing the photo of Piglet is making me broody! xx

    I’m the same and I can’t even say I have “baby brain” because my daughter is now 5. Anyway, I do hope you get the voluntary redundancy that you want. February was a bit of a blur for me… albeit a cold one. I’m just glad March is here now 🙂 x

    Aw I hope they sort out the voluntary redundancy for you the way that you want it to pan out. Roo and Boo are both doing really well aren’t they?

    Time is flying by so quickly – you have reminded me to write my February highlights post! Your baby girl is growing so fast! Kaz x

  • Idaintyit March 9, 2016 at 10:19 pm

    Wow you have got a good sleeper there! She is adorable! Also I love your pram

  • Kerry ( March 12, 2016 at 11:57 pm

    So sorry to hear you’re being made redundant. Hopefully it works out the way you want it to. That’s amazing that she’s sleeping so well for you, bet that’s a relief! Thanks for linking up to #shareitsunday x
