Baba, Shells and Sea

Today I am tired very tired I hit all my deadlines yesterday but wore myself out in the process, so instead of sitting here and thinking of something magical to say I pass you over to Baba and the sea!

We went away to Wales in September and I haven’t written a lot about it, but it was a great first family holiday.

One of the days we headed off to the beach and it was a beautiful day there was no one else on the beach and we spent a good couple of hours walking around collecting the shells well I shall let the pictures do the rest of the talking! More

The Gallery – Motherhood

This week over at The Gallery the theme is Motherhood.

Now I admit I struggled with this one, as motherhood means so many things to me. I firstly thought about a picture of Baba and I when he was first born and then I thought about a picture of Baba and I together some when else but none of these mean motherhood too me. It was really hard as I just couldn’t find the right picture, but I did in the end.

But first what is motherhood to me. More

Mummy, Nurse – Nurse, Mummy

Thursday I got a text from Mr L.

“Call me Now”

It was in the middle of the day, not at break time, not at lunch actually in the middle of the afternoon! As soon as I read the message, my heart skipped a beat and I thought ‘oh god.’

Mr L is a ground worker, he works on construction sites, he uses diggers, and other machines, lots of things can go wrong in his job. I know that!

I knew something had happened… More

Pregnancy Bye Bye

I hated being pregnant thats not actually correct, I loathed being pregnant, absolutely despised it, I can’t actually express how much I hated it. To me it was the worst thing that I have had to go through. I am not talking the labour, or the first few months where you can be ill, I am talking the whole thing. From the day I found out to the day I went into labour.

I have never before stated how much I hated it. More

The Good The Bad and The Ugly of Mother’s Day

Well what a day mother’s day was in our house.

We had the good, we had the ugly and then last night in the middle of the night we had the bad. So all in all it was very eventful!

It started out fantastic, I got breakfast in bed and a lovely card and book from Baba. I really was not expecting anything, if you read my blog you will have read how dismal Mr L is when it comes to mother’s day, so I was very pleased.

(C) 2010 And Then All I Thought About Was You


Mother’s Day

It’s my second mother’s day tomorrow.

For all of Mr L’s great things, mother’s day is not one of them. He is rubbish when it comes to getting things for mother’s day, and I do not just mean for me. He is rubbish for his own mother as well. I have to do all the present giving at mother’s day and have done the whole time that we have been together. More

Impressive Baba

Baba was at Nannies today as it was a work day for Mummy. He bowled in to her house at lunch time, (as we got a few extra hours today on our own) chatting away to his granddad. He was so at peace that when I said goodbye to him, he turned around and just waved, I don’t think he even noticed that I had gone, as he was back playing with his garage straight away.

Today when I went to collect him he did a succession of things that I was very impressed with, I don’t know whether he just preforms at Nannies, or whether he has done these before in front of her, but to me they were new. More

Our Little Baby Boy!

You run around all day
Screaming and shouting
Chatting non stop, nonsense to us but a conversation to you
You are playing with this and playing with that
Building towers, crashing cars, playing football
Making tea, doing puzzles, reading books
All things that you love, More

I don’t think so…not happy

The last few days have been a bit manic in our household. I have been very busy recruiting new representatives for work, I have also been helping out a family I used to work with working with W. Which has meant since Saturday I have been out of the house pretty much none stop. I walked in an hour ago, and I have got tomorrow and Friday free before back out on Saturday and Sunday.

Don’t get me wrong I love my job, and I love working with W but I am so tired! Basically I have been working when Mr L hasn’t, so he has been coming in at five and I have been leaving at six and not been getting in till late. I haven’t put Baba to bed for three nights in a row now. Which I think is a first in his little life, Mr L and I regularly take it in turns, but I haven’t gone three nights before. I feel guilty enough about this, but then this happened today and made me feel even worse. More
