#Vlogstars (TMI Tag)

Hey readers,

This month I thought for the first time that I would join this fun linky by You Baby Me Mummy

You Baby Me Mummy

Life is mundane sometimes 

Hey readers,

Parenthood is a strange old thing where there never seems like a state of equilibrium. One minute it is so busy my head is spinning to the next when it is dame right mundane you are bored to tears.

The role of mummy is hard, dame hard in fact. I am so bored from seeing Mr Tumble for the umpteen time that I want to rip his face off!

If that is enough to deal with then comes creeping in MUMMY guilt when you are moat vulnerable. Why do I feel so guilty because you have constant messages tha you can’t enjoy every minute and at the end day sometimes it is a but crap. I do love being a parent and it is a wonderful experience but sometimes I sit in the bathroom and want to cry  at 7am dreading the day ahead. Then I feel worse because I feel I am not good enough.

Where the boys are bickering non stop and I have to plan three meals a day, entertainment, drinks, potty training, washing etc day after day the same thing over and over again it can become tedious, boring and soul destroying. You lose a part of you, you feel like a robot and feel you are just a person looking after two small people.

If that isn’t bad enough having  a partner who is laid back and takes everything in his stride gets right under my skin. OK, it is more jealous why do I worry so much when hubby can take it or leave it, you absolute bastard.

It is all too overwhelming, too much information, too much pressure, too much judgement sometimes I just want to say fuck it to it all!

It is so frustrating 😤

Pick N Mix Fridays


Hey readers,

My word of the week is:


Because though money is tight for us this year we decided to have one good day out to London. Even though the weather was hit and miss we had a wonderful time exploring the city. The only downside is that it is SO big you need a lot time to spend exploring. Which we shall do next year. We did manage to go on the London Eye which my eldesr son has been desperate to do for months. On the eye has amazing views of the city. However, I was a bit squirmish being so high up. I am not good with feeling so high up in a place where something could go wrong, lol!


Later on in the week we went to Clarkes to pick up my sons first pair of school shoes. We are doing it now because I really can’t stomach the queues next week with the rush of desperate parents getting things ready for the new school year!

He loves his new shoes that he picked with flashy lights. He is desperate now to wear them but won’t be long now to September, eek!

Things you lose when you become a parent

Hey readers,

When they say your whole life turns upside down when you have children they ain’t fucking lying that is for sure. You can kiss your old care free life goodbye because everything that belongs to you own tangible or intangible you have lost and now is the solo owners of your little darlings.

Let’s hit hard and go for ideals – somewhere amongst the deprived sleep days of your new born you lose a part of you and it can be hard to be found. Nothing makes sense anymore, you lose your shit and you will learn the art of negotiation. Being perfect earth mother  that you so desired during pregnancy failed badly. All you care about now is being masterful in the art of bribe just so you can get some peace even though you probably spend hours after with guilt and dealt.

Anything within eye level has official gone when they start walking.  I suggest hide everything that is precious to you under lock and key. This young ‘uns have skills to find anything they want, the more desperate you are not to let them get it the more they will find a way to sniff it out!

All my stationary is destroyed, used, dried up or vanished in the darkest depths of their bedroom. I was deluded in thinking that if I give them my ‘posh’ fine liners I could sip a cup tea and then be presented with lids at a later day. In actually fact I just gone and lost my beautiful pens, chewed to death, god dame it.

The idea that you pretend you look alright and asking your four year old of what they think of your outfit. The boy is brutal in honesty, “mummy you have a big bum and you look a bit like the wolf in the three pigs”. Don’t ever be deluded and pretend you think you look like as they will bring you back to reality with a hard bump.!

Quiet time where you can watch your programmes, I suggest completely forget it. The child will win hands and down and will take full reigns. Forget watching any of your favourite programme with kids around or learn to read the subtitles but still have the problem of them conveniently being magnetised to the screen and standing there for ages for no other reason then to annoy the crap out of you.

Keep Calm and Carry On Linking Sunday

Hey readers,

My word of the week is


This is because the sun has been shinning and the boys have mainly requesting to visit the park. I took advance now as we all know that rain will eventually greet us!

I have been forcing myself out when sometimes like to hide away, because you know people are scary ;)! I digress I have been upping up my walking and pushing myself that little more. We went out as a family for a walk for two three hours and it has been fun. Where we live locally there is a plantasia and a maze world. There is a cute little farm and we even got to see the little baby chicken which was super cute!

In other news I don’t whether it is phase or not but my eldest has really been pushing my buttons the past two weeks. he has proper got an attitude and speaking back. I struggle to keep calm and not get wound up. So I had a couple of times take myself away as I am learning to with new challenge. Patenting never ending challenges that we have to deal with and adapt, joy!

Hope you had a good week.

Hey its you.

Reflecting back at me,

My we have been through a lot,

Time has come and gone,

But your still  hear hanging on.

I look in the mirror ,

I see strength and adversity,

Shit happens ,

But we still plodding along,

Through the journey of life,

Together you and I,

We are a team.

At times it feels like I am drowning,

But you bounce,

Right back up,

To see the reflection of you again.
