Wednesday 17th october 2012. Hand prints.

Today we decided to try a new toddler group close to where we live. I am not really keen on going to new toddler groups as most of the ones I have tried before are so clicky. I went to one group a few months ago, We ended up going 5 times and in that time no one made any effort at all to speak to me. On the 4th time we went the lady who runs it came up to me and said “hi is this your first time here” well I was so shocked, I had seen her… View Post

The ups and downs on my pregnancy and the birth.

Well I thought I would share with you my experience of being pregnant and theĀ  birth of my little monkey. I found out I was pregnant on the 31st August 2010. I can say that I instantly felt scared of being pregnant and especially the birth. The other half and I were so overjoyed that the feeling of being scared so went. Quite quickly I became very excited and wanted to go out buying things for the new baby. I was brought back down to earth though by hubby telling me to wait till after our 12 week scan, then… View Post

Monday 15th October 2012. Gaslight Anthem

Well yesterday the other half and I got a rare opportunity to go out on our own for the day without little monkey. Little monkey loves being with his grandma and grandad, mainly as he gets his own way and gets spoilt. Anyway the other half and I really like a band called Gaslight Anthem, yesterday we had tickets to go to O2 Academy in Brixton to see them play live. Grandad came over to pick little monkey up at 1, he then dropped us off at the train station. I was really looking forward to the day as i… View Post

15th October 2012. Playtime!

After reading on we saw that there was a post about the spinney in Little Bytham, which is near Peterborough. We thought it looked like a lot of fun and decided to take our little monkey. We really wasn’t to sure if he would be to young but decided to give it a go anyway. Sunday afternoon we got all wrapped up as it was a bit chilly and off we went. It is not the easiest place to find and is not signposted that well. We parked up and thought it looked lovely, with all the trees and… View Post

11th October 2012. Hamerton Zoo.

Well it was a few weeks back now and the hubby was off work for the week. We were talking about things that we could do that little monkey would enjoy as well. So we went swimming and to soft play areas and the usual. On his last day off we decided we were going to go to Hamerton Zoo in Sawtry near Peterborough. Now none of us had ever been here before and I wasn’t too sure what to expect if I am being honest. We decided to give it a go anyway. We arrived about 1230 and there… View Post

Tuesday 9th October 2012. Big boy

I just wanted to share this lovely picture with you. Its my little boy looking like a big boy, sitting at the table in a big chair. He kept smiling so much thinking he was a big boy. So proud of himself.  

Just like daddy

This picture was taken when Little monkey was three months old. Little monkeys daddy has always said he would love himself and Monkey to have matching hats when he is older. Daddy always wears this hat when he can not be bothered to do his hair and it is his favourite hat. One day I decided to put the hat on little monkey and take a picture and send it to the other half at work to make him smile. He absolutely loved the picture and said it made him smile. Now our little monkey is 17 moths old hes… View Post

Monday 8th October 2012 Spicy Shepherds Pie.

Well as promised earlier here is my Spicy Shepherds Pie recipe. I would just like to say that when my partner said about making this recipe I was a bit hesitant. It didn’t seem right to me. Shepherds Pie is Shepherds pie and shouldn’t be messed with. Anyway I gave it a go and now it is my absolute favourite. We love it and give it 10/10 (add any seasoning along the way as you wish, personally I don’t use any salt or pepper in this recipe) I hope some of you will try this as it is so nice.… View Post
