This time last week I had just returned home following a day at The Baby Show with a good friend and two of the children. It was a day of an unplanned, but most welcomed digital detox. We were too busy chatting, laughing and exploring to even check our phones. … View Post
Have you ever questioned what it is that makes you so special? Last year whilst watching a TV series that we’d downloaded there was an episode in which a young mum goes for a job interview. In that interview, she is asked what makes you so special – she pauses and tries to think of an answer before replying… Nothing. I’m just a mum. With that, she gets up and walks away. At that moment the tears rolled down my face, it really struck a chord with me. This scene is one that I have replayed in my mind many times since. None more so than this past week.… View Post
It’s funny how things can change with a phone call. As I sit and write this I should be keeping a watchful eye on Piglet. I should be explaining to Tigger that he’ll have to miss his swimming lesson this week.
Except I’m not. … View Post
Having worked for the NHS for 15 years I am fiercely proud of the services available. Yes, they don’t always get things right. However, some of that is down to resources and funding rather than the people who treat you. The NHS is free at the point of access and whilst we pay for this via our National Insurance contributions. We are fortunate not to have to worry about large bills arriving after treatment.
This week has seen us get our monies worth from the NHS…… View Post
Thursday we had a few extra sneezes from Piglet. She always sneezes with such dramatic effect that it is easy to remember them. Friday brought even more, however, I dismissed it as a cold. It appears that piglet doesn’t do colds or at least just a cold. An unsettled night was followed by an hour or two of her perking up enough to play. Shortly followed by a slump. Falling asleep on the sofa whilst watching her favourite film, The Greatest Showman.… View Post
Things happen in our lives to try us. Those moments that make us question ourselves, the world around us and how we can improve things going forward.
This week has been full of these moments for me. I’ve tried my best to shake off the last trying moment in order to deal with the next. I have failed. It has been one thing after another and if I’m honest it has gotten the better of me.… View Post
Yesterday confirmed something which if I’m honest I already knew but had buried my head in the sand over. Piglet isn’t likely to get a preschool placement at our local school starting in January. Actually, I’m not convinced that she’ll get a place for next September either.… View Post
With back to school season upon us, it brings an air of change in the Boo Roo and Tigger Too household. Whilst Roo is heading up to high school and Tigger into Key Stage 2.… View Post
Located in the former Regal Cinema at the bottom of Dereham Road in Norwich. The Bowling House has been open since March 2018 and has transformed the old cinema space into a funky boutique entertainment area. Keeping highlights of the buildings past with the use of the cinema seating in the lobby and within the bowling lanes. … View Post
Facebook memories have the ability to either bring a smile to your face or stop you in your tracks for a moment. This morning as we were driving to Chessington World of Adventures on a family day out. I sat scrolling through my Facebook timeline to pass the time away. A notification to say I had Facebook memories to look at prompted me to click-through and take a look.… View Post
I think that Piglet is ready for the move up to the next room in her nursery setting. As she has reached the mine, all mine stage of toddlerhood. That wonderful stage where everything is… View Post
Although there is no denying the importance of providing our children with a sound academic education recognised throughout the world, teaching life skills to minors is also essential for the development of our offspring. In fact, parents who appreciate the need to put their child’s education before their own worldly desires… View Post
This September Piglet will be making the move to the next stage within her nursery setting. Heading up to the older toddler room in preparation for preschool. Realistically she should have made the move a… View Post

It’s been a while since I shared a #LittleLoves post. After it was changed from a weekly to a monthly link up I kind of lost my way. Life is so hectic that I can barely recall what happened last week never mind what happened at the beginning of the month. So what I’m trying to say is that I missed sharing a little snapshot of our lives each week. And I’m hoping to start adding a #LittleLoves post up each week once again.… View Post
