Saturday 24th November 2012, Sausage Rolls

Today I had some sausages in the fridge that we was not going to eat.  I thought rather than wasting them I would make sausage rolls. They are so easy to make, yet I have never made my own sausage rolls before. They taste so good, I will be making more of my own from now on.   Before the Oven     After the oven. Yum!!!!

Thursday 22nd November 2012, Parents Evening

Little man has been going to nursery since May 2012. He absolutely loves it and we love him going. He has such a good day and gets to play all day. Today was a big day for my partner and I. It was little mans first parents evening. I was so excited and couldn’t wait to go and find out what he had been up to. At the end of every day he brings his daily book home. Within this book it tells us what he has eaten, when he has been changed and what he has played with. A… View Post

Wednesday 21st November 2012, Having fun.

My little man loves playing with anything messy. I’m sure most kids of his age are the exact same though. Today at messy play there were lots of fun things that were messy and fun. They had spaghetti with paint on it, pink slush, shaving foam on a table, play dough and the thing my little man loves the most… Shredded paper.

Help, Macdonalds!!

I have a question for all you Mummy and Daddys out there. What do you think about children having McDonalds? Me and the other half have different opinions on this one. I think that once in a while is OK. Now by once in a while I mean once every 2-3 months. While the other half thinks little man should never have a McDonalds and it’s really bad for him. I was out with little man on Tuesday and he had not eaten his lunch before we went out. While we were out in town he decided he was really… View Post

Friday 16th November 2012. Children in Need.

  Today as I am sure you all know is Children in Need. Usually where I work not a lot of people get involved with things like this. Today seemed to be different though. We had fun games and quizzes food and cakes. Most of the games were 40p. My favourite was a really simple but addictive game. The was a piece of string with 30 pegs on it, the aim was to see who could take the most pegs off the string using one hand only at all times. We had to keep all the pegs in our hand… View Post

Tuesday 13th November 2012. Fireman Sam.

I remember when I was young I used to love Fireman Sam. My little man certainly takes after me. Everything is Fireman Sam. He’s got Fireman Sam backpack, Fireman Sam quilt cover and pillow case, Soft toys, Fire engines and loads of Fireman Sam clothes. I also find my self watching Fireman Sam all the time on TV. The other day there was one of the really old Fireman Sams on TV. It’s amazing how much it has changed. Is any one else Sam crazy? I actually find my self wanting to watch Sam on TV now. Oh and when… View Post

Monday 12th November 2012. Chilling after a busy day.

Today little man and myself have had a very busy day. We have finished our Christmas shopping, done food shopping and had to go pick the other half up from work. I know it doesn’t sound too much, but by the time little man has been fed, slept changed and done all as above, it’s almost a whole day. Little man is very god for a while in his pushchair, but after about 1hr he wants to get out and walk. He hates me holding his hand, but if I don’t he runs off. I had to share this picture… View Post

saturday 10th November 2012. Homemade Pizza.

We like to make our own pizza and they taste so much better than shop bought ones. Or I think better than dominos. Our favourite is chicken, pepperoni, spinach, peppers and mushrooms with lots of cheese. Tonight we decided to have homemade pizza with homemade chips. We started off by putting the pizza base mixture in our bread maker. This takes 25 minutes to mix up. I then roll the mixture out and make it into a round pizza shape. We add all the toppings until there is no space left on the pizza. Once we are happy with how… View Post

Friday 9th November 2012. Karvol

Over the last week the family have all been unwell. I wrote a post about my little man having a high temperature and being sick. Well now he’s full of cold and his nose is like a river. The problem we have is when it comes to-night time and he lays down his nose blocks up. he sleeps for a little bit and then wakes up crying and can’t breath through his nose, which I think scares him a bit. I tried baby Vicks on his chest and it didn’t really work. He already sleeps with a pillow so I tried to prop him up more… View Post

Thursday 8th November 2012. Seeing the Clairvoyant.

So last night I went to see a clairvoyant. I have always been very sceptical about this sort of thing. Over the last few months a lot of people around me have been, they have told me about their experiences and I though I have to give this a go. Me and my friend were talking about it last week and decided to book to see a lady called Pam in our area. She has been doing readings for the last 15 years. I was nervous and excited. A couple of people I spoke to told me that she had got there reading… View Post
