So here we are. Week 26 of #MaternityMondays. It’s been a tough week here. Baby G is teething and Saturday night, I didn’t get much sleep at all.
Coupled with that, I have a 4 year old with a social calendar busier than mine, it has made for a very tired mummy.
It was Caroline’s turn to host last week so these are her favourites:
I really enjoyed “10 things that must stop when I become a parent” from Mums the Law, and I have to admit that I still do some of these things – putting off the washing up, for example!
I also loved “Defining life with a newborn” from Loving Life with Little Ones. It’s not that long since we were in that stage and I have to admit I don’t miss it as it really can be tricky!
Finally, I have to admit I was a little in awe of Mum in a Nutshell‘s organisation with her changing bag. I aim to have all of these things in my bag and sometimes I do manage it but there is generally a scrabble around grabbing things to shove in before we leave the house!
As always, grab the badge and share the linky love by commenting on a few other blog posts, it would be lovely if we could grow a little community to share the highs and lows of motherhood and parenting. It is my turn to host this week and I am really looking forward to reading your posts!

Ps I would like to make a confession. I have realised I have got a bit mixed up about what week we are on-I am blaming lack of sleep. We have had about three week 23s and two 24s oops.
I a, back with the right week this week.
I’ve read quite a few blog posts recently about what is in people’s baby changing bags. The wonderful brand, Pink Lining is looking for brand ambassadors so, bloggers nationwide are creating beautiful back drops, carefully lining up their pristine bag... Continue reading →
The last time I worked with House of Fraser, I was heavily pregnant and, not knowing what sex I was having, I ended up just getting Boo stuff. Ironically, in the wilds of January, I opted for a Yumi summer... Continue reading →
Boo suffered quite badly from cradle cap so I wasn’t surprised to see it on Baby G’s head. With both babies, I’ve used olive oil (from the chemist-not the infused with garlic from the supermarket) and them rinsed with... Continue reading →
This week, an anonymous blogging friend has been ‘outed’ to her neighbour because said neighbour took in a parcel which had the name of her blog emblazoned on it. I’ve been blogging in earnest for around two years now and... Continue reading →
Loneliness can be defined as a subjective, unwelcome feeling of lack or loss of companionship. It happens when we have a mismatch between the quantity and quality of social relationships that we have, and those that we want (Perlman and... Continue reading →
Welcome to week 23 of #MaternityMondays. We had some great entries last week. My first favourite was from Run Jump Scrap and I loved reading about their latest holiday. Next up was a newbie for me from Girl In the... Continue reading →
Yesterday was my favourite day if the farming year. Sheep shearing. The actual technical side of the day was unchanged from last year so if you want to read about that, you can here. The differences this year were... Continue reading →
Have we lost the ability to parent our children? Do some parents not even want to? These are the questions which have been buzzing around my head since reading about the gang dressed as waiters trying to kidnap British children... Continue reading →
With Father’ Day this weekend, I am urging all dads with babies to get down and dirty with their little ones. I don’t particularly mean nappy changing (although that would be much appreciated thank you). I mean bath time. In... Continue reading →
