Two words……Baby shark! and achieving the 100th post

Those that have seen recently on Facebook that our little wookie has decided that this particular song has become her favourite thing of late and if any one has heard this song ….if you can call it that is about as high on my list of disdain as the so called Floss ( dance move again if you call it that sweeping the internet ) it not only has to be played once or twice during the day it is played MORNING, NOON and NIGHT !!

Though as parent’s we are morally obliged to give our children what they desire and when they accompany big tears if said song isnt played then this is our moral compass to bear x

Is there any particular song or craze that drives you up the wall but you tolerate for your precious ones ??? Feel free to leave a message or comment

Thankyou for following me all this time and reading these excerpts of a tired mummy on a journey of discovering parenthood one step at a time x

Family day’s out

Thursday was a really nice day out with mother in law and niece and sister in law and stepson x with hubby and our two little uns having fun and adventures on the beach and arcades and popping in to visit an old friend…a while ago hubby as a brithday present brought me an adoption pack for a sea turtle named noah x

And well the reunion was wonderful and he still looks great x and for this mummy rides and I do not mix but as mommy’s we do almost anything for our children and we’ll this mummy bit the bullet and rode small rides were my knees hugged my face and mini roller coasters ( after eating a huge bowl of chips.. Not a great idea!)

All in all a great day had by all x love these family moments making memories with the kids

Vaccinations or injections (US/UK)

The ongoing debate amongst parents is the decision whether to vaccinate your children?

Are the benefits worth the risk some have chosen not to and others are for the idea and that we should protect our children from the infections and diseases out there and from what I’ve seen and to make clear I am no definitive side as each to their own but I have vaccinated both of my little ones as I was when I was younger but these generations do vary and some people do have reactions to some drugs out there?

What is your take and did you make the decision or choose not to?

Shiny and new!

I love it when the phone company tells you they’re upgrading your phone, as you know mine was rather on its way out and rather cracked screen due to well me and kids combined it wasnt hard to use but when you get something new you can’t stop playing with it so hopefully when I do a little vlogging it will be scarily clear you’ll be able to see if I have lipstick on my teeth or not!

Never say never to a reunion x they say you can never go home again

If you are like me and have those friend’s you made in school and lost contact with , then by all means pick up the phone and call them , for today I had the nicest lunch with an old school chum of mine , one of the original pack xx and got to meet his wonderful other half , visiting for one of our other friends nuptials this weekend and to say it was an emotional reunion well pass this blogger the tissues , I wanted to pinch him to make sure he was real !!!

It wasnt the fanciest of places we went but it was nice for the kids to have lunch and entertain themselves while mummy reminisced about the adventures we used to have and what mischief we used to get up to and what teacher’s we nearly ended up putting in therapy ! and have a little wonder around all the places we used to play and hang out and while we chatted and wished our coffee was wine/cider( which would of been perfect had it not been for children obviously ) but also the weather had been a godsend and was just right to sit out and entertain our rendezvouz.

If like me you had those friendship’s you forged when you were little , track them down and have a catch up you just might find out how much you have in common or just find how theurapeutic it can be to chat and you just might find they may be going through what you are ….never say never and if they say you can’t go home again…… What a load of BS! As we quite rightly proved x

The graceful art of being an hen x

Well Saturday night ( last week now been somewhat of an emotional roller-coaster since then) was something I haven’t done in a while and that is have a good time to say I can’t party like I used to is an understatement and feeling it! is most definite as the children gracefully banged a drum in time to my head x

Haven’t had a hangover in a while and probably won’t for a time as am passed that age now an definitely am aware of my limits! Or so I thought (cue the wedding reception lol) It had been a few years since I too was an hen and getting ready to spend my life with the man I love and was very pleased to see my bridesmaid and best friend of more than a decade or two x getting ready to marry her Prince charming x and the priceless face she made with the stripper! Cant thank her enough for the time and honour being apart of her journey x

Where there any fun games you played?

Or memorable moments with your girlfriends that make you smile?

What highlights can you remember from your hen do if any?
