Ten in ten..

Not kids! Things I want to do with M before E arrives.. 10 things in 10 weeks… seems do-able, right? I know it may sound very strange to some people, but I officially have MMG… Major mum guilt! My baby will no longer be an only child, and for many reasons, this is a great thing! but part of me keeps feeling bad for him not getting to experience being the only one for a little bit longer, he is only 18 months! Even though I know he’s going to be so excited when his sister comes, and it just …

Brunch with Messy Little Thing!

Today has been a very exciting day for little man and me, as we were invited along to have brunch with Messy Little Thing!!  We traveled up to Fratello’s in Jesmond, Newcastle for a meal, and to test out Messy Little Thing’s full body bib. Messy Little Thing was launched by Dawn-Elizabeth Howe, after trying out so many bibs to keep her daughter clean when she was weaning, and not finding any that suited her needs or had the right material, Dawn decided to bring out the sewing machine and make one for herself! Along came Messy Little Thing. As Dawn’s …

When is it time to cut their hair?

So I come to you today to ask a question. When is it time to cut their hair? Little man has never had a lot of hair (despite tons of heartburn, that landed me on tablets for 5 months!) and was born with very light, thin hair. We have decided that we were not going to cut it till it got long enough to be put in a bobble, good idea, right? Think I was wrong. The back of his hair is full of beautiful curls, and I could easily pop it into a tiny little ponytail! However, with his …

The start of nursery!

It’s that time! School has begun, and little ones are on their way to nursery and pre-school. This year I’m heading back to college myself, to study Acess to Health. This means Milo has gone to nursery! He goes every Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday for a few hours, and it’s on site of the college so it doesn’t feel too bad after I’ve dropped him off. With most nurserys they do a few tester days first before the big day, to help your little one settle in, which I found extremely calming and it gave me peace of mind that he …

My Tattoo’s #2

And we are back! hope I didnt keep you waiting too long! I’m going to dive right in starting with tattoo number 11-; This was the first start of my sleeve, and I was very excited and nervous all at once! For most tattoo lovers will know that long tattoo’s are intense, and you should only go for it if you’re sure you can handle it, as it is hard. This tattoo took around 6 hours, and by then end I was sore, but amazed. The level of planning and detail that Jason put into this tattoo shows how worth …

My Tattoo’s #1

So far I have 14 tattoo’s, each with a meaning of there own, and I often get stopped and asked about them by passers by, or shop assistants, and family members so I decided that I would write a post to explain them all. I am very passionate about my tattoo’s and each one will always have a meaning to it before I get it, like a piece of art, they explain parts of my life that mean the most to me. Most of my tattoo’s have been done at the same place, Acero Arte in Darlington by artist Jason …
