Hello darling, 2 months in already. Wow where is this time going! This week you had your jabs which was a horrid experience for mummy. You were brave - even given the doctor smiles before the nurse upset you with her injections. Lots of cuddles afterwards which you more than relished. We took our first… Continue reading 2 Months of you!
One Month of P
Hello darling girl! One whole month of you in our lives has gone by in a flash! We've had the most unusual start to the journey as we have just begun to come out of a global pandemic. Which has meant that visitors have been spread out - some people you are still to meet!… Continue reading One Month of P
Well, what can I say about the year you turned 6. A global pandemic hit and turned our world upside down. You were forced to stay at home (along with both me and your dad) and we spent the summer term being a family and shielding from Covid-19. Looking back it was a time for… Continue reading Six
Penelope’s Birth Story
It's been three weeks to the day that Penelope came into our lives. With this baby I knew I wanted an elective Cesarean due to the crazy labour I faced with Evelyn.

Well you are not alone. The English National Curriculum has undergone many changes in its history and has ‘evolved’… Continue reading Real World Maths
Well, we are now into Summer term and school should be back in full swing. It isn’t. We are still managing this pandemic the best we can. As a Deputy head, as a teacher, as a mum it has been a challenging time and I’ve seen across social media that people are in mixed opinion… Continue reading Do you!
The happiest place in the world? Yes! We had an absolutely wonderful 4 days trip to the park so I thought I'd blog about our experience including tips and tricks to help anyone thinking of going (and to remind me for when we go again!) So, we booked direct through Disneyland Paris Travel Company back… Continue reading Disneyland Paris
So this month I attended a workshop. I attended a workshop with other like minded ladies. A workshop that would help me to reconnect with me? Take time out? Feel less alone? Realise that we are all in this together? Yes. That is exactly what it was. A wonderful local Mama, Claire, has set up… Continue reading Mama Time
School Daze to School Days
Being a parent AND a teacher is difficult. I had always assumed that having this profession behind me would enable a smooth transition to parenthood. I was wrong. ‘The book of Parenting’ is written by a completely different author to that of ‘The book of Teaching’. However, over the past 3 and a half years… Continue reading School Daze to School Days
