Where has the week gone? They always say time seems to be speeding up but I am sure it really is!! Not really sure what I have done with my week again. Been in a mood mostly, can’t seem to shift it. I need to get out of the house more!
For years people have been ‘Keeping up with the Joneses’. It always seems as though others have more than you- they have a better house, go on better holidays and dress way better than you.
It is hard not to compare, social media gives us a direct insight into other peoples’ lives. You only have to scroll down your Instagram feed to see perfectly positioned coffees on beautiful coffee tables or a gorgeous newborn sprawled on a beautiful bedspread. Immediately you wish you had a coffee with a swirly milk heart and a new baby to show off!
When I first started this blog it was with the intention to help people. I have been going a few months now and after my initial posts on becoming a mum I haven’t really written anything that is ‘helpful’ as such.
I had an idea the other day – have a ‘reader question’ every day! I have thrown the idea out to my Facebook page and Twitter and have already had a few mums message me with questions!
The idea will be that other mums will be able to offer support and if I am able to help I will do so. If it is a big enough subject I will also be able to write a full post giving tips and ideas to help.
Sharing our experiences is so important as when you are a first time mum everything is so daunting!
So come on ladies (and gents of course!) let’s help each other out!
I am so lucky that Mr F is a loving dad. From the moment he became a father his girls became his whole world. His face lights up when he sees them and they have him well and truly wrapped around their little fingers- but he loves it.
There are some fathers out there who do not appreciate their children as they should. Their faces do not light up when they see them. My dad is one of those dads.
I am glad my girls will never have to feel the way I feel. Their daddy loves them more than anything in the world.

Since having our children we have not been on any holidays abroad as I have been a bit nervous about flying with newborns. However, now that they are getting a bit older we have decided that next year will be the year! We have been looking for a while now and I thought I would share our planning journey for our Cyprus holiday.
I treat my children the same as much as possible. If I take a photo of one then I take a photo of the other etc etc..
Anyway, so we were having a lovely time at the park and I decided to capture that moment on camera- cheeky upload to Instagram obs.
So here is the lovely photo of Baby L. Cheeky grin as always and totally camera ready.
Becoming a blogger has given me back my identity, I feel like I am contributing to the world, a tiny bit of the world maybe, but my brain is being used for something other than watching bloody Mr Tumble or playing Guess Who! If I am honest I am not really sure I knew what blogging was about, but now I do and I am so glad I started down this path.
