Before I became a parent there were many things I wouldn’t dream of saying, things such as ‘Please stop drinking out of your brothers potty’ or ‘Don’t scratch your bum then sniff your finger’ Today another little gem occurred when Gareth said ‘ Freddie please stop drinking off the table’ After Freddie has spilt his drink all over the table then proceeded to lick it off like a cat! So I took to some of my favourite bloggers and asked them. “What are the things you never thought you would hear yourself say? ” Continue reading “Things you never thought you would hear yourself say – Until you became a parent.”
Like every family we have our good weeks and our bad weeks. I have recently , moved over from a mum that used to live on ready-made sauces chucked with a bit of chicken to a mum that now home cooks almost every day. I discovered whilst looking at different diets that I actually much preferred home-cooked meals. Not only did I enjoy the actual cooking but I also like the flavour. They taste so much better!

This time of year is always a difficult time for me as the 10th June is the anniversary of one of my miscarriages and possibly one of the most difficult and scary days of my life. Continue reading “Miscarriage – I will never forget”

My hug this week actually came this morning. Gareth had gone to take Freddie and Annabelle to school and nursery and I was in the living room with a very grumpy Bethie. I picked her up and within 2 minutes she was fast asleep snoring in my arms. Continue reading “#MyWeeklyHug Linky 06/06/2016”
Last week we heard from Vikki and how her son has suffered bullying if you haven’t already read it then give it a read. This week our story comes from Rebecca who blogs at Mummy Est 2014. I really appreciate Rebecca sharing her story with us as I am more than sure it wasn’t easy. So thank you very much for being a part of my campaign.
Please could you introduce yourself and tell us a little bit about yourself.
Hi, I’m Rebecca (Mummy Est.2014). At school I was known by less friendly names such as ‘Fraggle’, ‘Hitler’s Granddaughter’ and ‘Nazi’. But these days I’m Becka or Mama. I am an Early Years Professional and Mummy blogger. I live with my hubby and our son ‘J’ who is 2. J has additional needs so life is very busy but we have lots of fun. We are often out on adventures at the beach, the woods or just out and about.
Can you remember when the bullying started for you? Where were you? What happened?
My main memories of bullying were from Middle school. It started in year 5 and I was being called ‘Fraggle’ because (according to my bully) I had very long hair and glasses so I looked like a Fraggle from Fraggle Rock. This progressed as we got into the older middle school years and started learning about WW2. I was born in Germany. I’m the daughter of an RAF veteran and was born when my parents were stationed there. I was born on an English RAF camp and am 100% British. But because I was born in Germany and knew a bit of German this ‘obviously’ made me related to Hitler. It made history classes unbearable.
Can you remember how it made you feel at the time?

So I had quite an interesting weekend. It was mine and Gareths 5th Anniversary of when we got together and as a result I cooked us a lovely 3 course meal. Everything was cooked from scratch we had Asparagus wrapped in parma ham with melted butter followed by Chicken Tikka pieces, Homemade Naan bread and salad finished off with Shortbread, cream and strawberries. It was delicious but it also made me realise that I could cook bread. The naan bread was delicious Continue reading “Fresh homemade bread roll recipe – Mofm style”
I am one of those people who wake up one day and decide to take the kids out with no pre-planning and often end up frantically searching google for places to go. School holidays and weekends can become very expensive when trying to take the kids out and do things with them. It seems like everyone is out and about doing things and if you don’t have much money it can make you feel like you’re letting your kids down Continue reading “Fun and Free Days out in Telford and Shropshire”
When you’re pregnant it can become very isolated. Your friends vanish into thin air because they think you can no longer do anything and the world goes much quieter. This is why I decided to join Babycentre and see if I could make some friends. People in the same situation as I was and people who I could talk to when I needed to. Little did I know it would be the start of the cutest little toddler love story ever! Continue reading “A toddler love story – Freddie & Evelyn”
