Wake Up Bright in the Morning Light

The first signs of Spring

I love the longer days, I love it when the clocks spring forward, honestly I do. I really do. And back BC (before children) I would wake up in my little damp flat in Clapham and see the sun pouring in through the gaps in the curtain and be full of hope for the day [...]

My little heartbreaker

She’s peacefully sleeping in my bed, after a long and broken night, of bad dreams and losing Milo and covers falling off. I’m getting ready for work in the half darkness, just the hall light giving me some idea of where my tights are hiding. She’s starting to stir, her teeth grinding, her arms starting [...]

Implements of torture

There are some things in my life that, since having children, have become cruel tormentors that seem to take pleasure in their taunting. This, of course, is entirely illogical since these things are almost all inanimate objects or abstract concepts. Take for example a big, snuggly, bed. With a soft, puffy, Puraspace duvet. Just waiting [...]

Rude awakening

I’m lying on a boat in the blue sea, the water making a gentle shlushing noise as it rocks the boat, life is good. “Mummy!  Is it morning?” suddenly I’m in my bed, no water to be seen unless you count last night’s glass by the bed and the shlushing noise is the life form [...]

Spring cleaning with the fairies

I undertook some fairly ruthless de-cluttering this weekend. I like to organise things in boxes and now that I’m a grown up in a grown up house I like to have boxes that look pretty. I realised that ancient washing baskets (made of plastic) weren’t really going to cut it in Grownupsville. These storage boxes [...]

The sleeping thing

So if you have a child you most probably have some fetching carrier bags adorning your under-eye area, well I do anyway. Sleep really does become such a complete OBSESSION when one has children.  At least among my friends and those I’ve ‘met’ through blogging it does. Why is this? Simple. We NEED SLEEP.  Our [...]

The night terrors

They start at about midnight and come and go throughout the night, as I lie in my bed with a million worries and thoughts spinning through my head I pray silently that they will pass and everyone will go back to sleep. But it rarely happens and then as the night goes on I give [...]

The dummy fairy part 2

Update from last night.. Day one in the dummy-free house and we are all still sane. Sort of. Eliza went to bed reasonably easily after some time wailing in my arms and begging me for her dummy. I stood fast and said no she was a big girl about a thousand times then I started [...]

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 [...]
