Train rides and muddy puddles

What a day.  I’m knackered. Eliza has been learning about transport at nursery and yesterday she went along to the train station to learn about, well trains I suppose. So today I said that I’d take her and Tilly on an actual real train. Cue much excitement. We went off in the pram, hoping/assuming Tilly [...]

Bye bye dummies!

Do you know what? The dummy fairy only bloody works!  I know I didn’t think it would either and had it not been for all the words of support from you lovely people and the militant rule of my husband I would have given up. But I think you probably knew that. Last night Tilly [...]

Dummy fairy part 3: in which I wonder why on earth I started this…

So you have 2 children, both reasonable sleepers, maybe they wake once or twice a night but nothing a cuddle and a re-plug of a dummy can’t help (well less so with one child, but let’s not worry about that for the purposes of dramatic effect.). One day, apropos of nothing really except some imagined [...]

The Dummy Fairy comes calling..

Image from www.thedummyfairyworkshop.com As you may know I do some particularly stupid things in my life, none more so than where my children are concerned.  Probably the one that takes the prize though is giving my 3 year old her dummy back after having ditched it a year previously after her baby sister came along [...]

Who are the experts?

I was musing today about what to do about Eliza wanting to suck her dummy that she had just dropped in the loo.  After doing a poo and before flushing. She went mental when I washed it. So who knows how to deal with that? And who has good advice about baby sleeping issues? And [...]

Red mist

I think this is what Tilly sees when I leave her room. She cries like she knows the world is actually going to be hit by a meteorite the size of the sun and no one will take her seriously. She is angry. And cross. And frustrated. I never have been one for controlled crying. [...]


It’s 3am I’m woken by something loud and blood curdling, I stumble out of bed mid-dream and it takes me a 10th of a second to realise I am not in fact a fairy princess in a tower in the forest but a mother and that blood curdling scream is my youngest daughter, doing her [...]

Tummy sleeping

At 3am this morning, him indoors and I were awoken by a piercing ‘beep, beep, beep!” once I realised it wasn’t the smoke alarm in Dilys’ shop (Fireman Sam is never far from my thoughts), we stumbled over each other and said: “OHMYGOD!!! Tilly’s alarm!!” We both ran into her room, first stepping on the [...]

The bedtime routine: part 2 in which I attempt to impart some wisdom

Long ago, in a galaxy far away (yes I’ve used that line before, but the old ones are the best), I was a carefree young woman, who suffered occasionally from insomnia.  I know.  Crazy to think that now isn’t it.  Insomnia is a condition whereby your mind and/or body prevents you sleeping and getting your [...]

Life. That’s all.

I have written a post on Holly’s Hobby today, something incredibly sad happened last week and it has shaken me.  It has made me truly realise all that I have, how lucky we are in our little family.  How sleep issues, and teething issues, and feeding issues and all that comes with having 2 small [...]
