Is this yours.....

Today started off well, it's payday so i'm always cheery, it's nice to have money in my account....until tomorrow when my direct debits suck it out, anyway after my usual morning routine it was time to take 4yo to nursery. I popped to the toilet before I left then left the house 4yo in tow.

She bounded off into the classroom whilst I chatted to her teacher. I've been working with my 4yo to write her name so I was informing her of 4yo's improvement.

I noticed my jeans had slid down a little so I yanked them up and heard something fall to the ground.

At this point I'm still in deep conversation with the teacher at this point and I glanced down to see a tampon staring back at me on the floor.

I had a few options here....

1) yell and run off embarrassed
2) go red faced and apologise
3) calmly pick it up and carry on like nothing had happened.

I went with number much so I carried on the conversation and maintained eye contact throughout. Impressive I thought but the redness of my face may had given away the fact that I was dying inside.

A bit later on since it had been pud's birthday we took her to build a bear. I was typing in the details for the blooming bear's birth certificate and hubs storms up to me waving a tampon in the air

'can you just not keep hold of these things...I mean if one incident wasn't enough'

He was brandishing the tampon like a orchestral conductor I was trying to explain but he was in full flow so to speak.

I managed to get a word in finally..

'darling...that's not mine...'

Three is the magic number

My youngest daughter turns three tomorrow.

From tomorrow all my girls are of an educational age and I have left the baby days of my girls far behind.

How fast the time has gone from learning I was expecting my pud to her being here in my arms.

This blog was born shortly after her, it's been a wonderful three years watching her grow, watching her change from baba to little lady.

She's fantastic, no one messes with little eve she will stand up me, her bigger sisters and anyone who she feels may steal her crown.

She's funny, oh so very funny with her 'friggin' finger and her cute little

Eve was one of the best surprises I've ever had and she keeps surprising me every day with her warm heart, her quiet confidence and her beautiful eyes.

Happy birthday my darling, mummy loves you so much and you will always be my baby girl xxxx

Giving you the finger

'don't play with the doors!!!!!'

This is a regular sentence heard in my house I hate the children swinging the doors or running around slamming them as they zoom through.

Nothing hurts more than a trapped finger and as usual I didn't listen to my own advice.

After a long day I had just finished in the bathroom before bed and hubs comes to talk to me for the usual bedtime pep talk.

We all know what that sorry I have a headache....anyway he goes to close the bathroom door and I realise I'm resting my hand against the door jam (I was going for a seductive pose honest) I yell OUCH but I can't move my fingers they are trapped.

Hubs as a typical man has a lightbulb moment...

'oh the door didn't close,I guess if I slam it a bit harder that will sort it...'

Yes you Guessed it...



my poor fingers were crushed and now are sporting a very unique diagonal purple nail varnish.

So the moral of this story is to keep your fingers out of door jams and move swifter to avoid the bedroom pep talk ;) xx

Tools, plumbing and a u bend

Last week I had a blockage, it wouldn't shift no matter what I did, I needed help, a good flushing out so I called a plumber.

He was well equipped for the job and unleashed his massive tool on my plumbing. Still nothing went down I was dumb struck and fed up of having to clean everything in the bath.

Anyway My plumber was amazing, outside he went brandishing his tool and gave my plumbing a good banging. He came inside and then set to work again, with a quick few plunges my pipes were clear and working like a dream.

Unfortunately it seems the saga isn't over and in hindsight I should've realised his tool was too big!! I have now developed a leak in my u bend!!

I'm not pleased, with the plug in it just leaks everywhere and I have to collect the spillage in a bowl which is just not practical!!!

So on Monday I'll be awaiting another visit to have my u bend well and truly sorted!!!

Sometimes a good banging just doesn't sort the problem :)
