Hump Day Linky 26/7

Welcome back to Hump Day Linky and thanks for joining me on my weekly linky to celebrate Hump Day – the middle of the week, and the downhill journey to the weekend! This week has passed by in a bit of a blur to be honest, as usual I am VERY sleep deprived. We finally have a referral to try and get to the bottom of Neve’s eating issues, and lots more special creams to try and get her eczema under control! For now I am simply wishing for a good night’s sleep! My favourite two posts from last week...

A little reminder… #MyCustomSign

What quote currently defines your life? If you had a sign to sum up your life right at this moment, what would it say? Here is mine… Over the last ten months I have spent a LOT of time in this chair – the chair I am sitting in now, phone in hand. The smallest chair I could find to fit in my daughter’s box room nursery, and a chair which is only just big enough for my ever increasing buttocks. I sit, uncomfortable, in this chair for approximately 75% of the night every single night – feeding, rocking and...

#NoddyChallenge Rainy Day Craft

This last week of British summertime has been… well… somewhat disappointing to say the least! When looking for a fun activity to keep the girls entertained I came across the #NoddyChallenge with Tots100 and The Book People – a challenge to create a fun art, food or craft project inspired by Noddy. We are big Noddy fans in this house, having grown up with Noddy as a child in the 80’s myself. He’s changed somewhat in that time (haven’t we all!) but his little hat, bell and red and yellow car are hard to forget. With a big cardboard...

REVIEW – Motorola Smart Nursery

I have used a video monitor with both my girls since the day they were born. There is something unbelievably reassuring about seeing them tucked up snuggly in their cot/bed, hearing them breathing and watching their chest rise up and down in their slumber. When Neve moved into her own room at around 6 months old, watching her on a monitor next to my bed cushioned the blow a little at least (not that I don’t still see her frequently throughout the night!) Whilst it may seem a little unorthodox, we also still use a video monitor in Erin’s room. She...

Outgrowing Your Home – To Extend, Convert or Sell?

We are getting to the point where we are slowly outgrowing our home. Whilst we have no plans to have any more children, we have a 3 bedroom house and two children, and are slowly running out of storage, having recently converted the box room into Neve’s nursery. We have a few options, and I am completely stuck when it comes to deciding which one is best for our situation. Loft Conversion – my in-laws just completed a loft conversion in their bungalow, and it looks AMAZING. They now have a welcoming guest room for when family come to say, and it...
