HELP! I'm a Mombie!

I've pretty much lost count how many nights I've been awake at stupid o clock because of my darling Rupert!

He's not been eating much, he's been ridiculously snotty so I just put it down to him having mini man flu and being extra clingy.

It's been ok for him though as he'll happily catch up on sleep throughout the day and look all angelic and make me feel bad for feeling crap and angry. 
I've not been able to nap really as I have too much to do around the house or if I am about to fall asleep I'll have to rush out on the school run. 

As you can imagine I've been dragging myself around like a zombie and not being able to concentrate on the little things of life let alone my blog!

I've been filling my body up with coffee, coffee some chocolate then even more coffee.
I have been on the verge of tears in the past few days I've been so tired.

It's shit but it's mummy life you just have to pull yourself together and get on with it, as you know it won't last forever!
If you can give birth you can do anything!!! 

Yesterday I was stroking Ru's hair to get him to nap so I could get on with my mountain of washing and felt some crustyness by his ear .... low and behold he has been suffering from an almighty ear infection and his ear drum had exploded, gunk and puss everywhere. 

No wonder he's not been sleeping or eating!
How did I miss that!!!
Mum Fail! 

A visit to the doctor and some antibiotic ear drops later and hopefully we're on the path to better sleep! 

Ru slept through with the help of our trusted friend calpol and his ear drops. Noah on the other hand decided he would scream out loud that needed me to sleep with him then when I thought I could crawl back into my bed Alex decided he needed mummy cuddles. 

With the twins mattress being so horrible and hard it's very hard to get to sleep. 
We really need to get them new ones! 
I finally got to bed about 3 this morning only to be woken up at 5 by Oscar! 

Oh I can't wait for them being lazy teenagers and making them get up super dooper early!

Review || Wilkinson Sword Intuition Ultra Moisture

So its my cousins wedding this weekend and I'm having to make my legs suitable for public viewing! Usually my legs are hidden and the only leg skin that see the light of day are the bits that peak out behind the holes in my jeans.

I don't tend to get my legs out but when I do, I do like them to look good!
I'm pretty lazy when it comes to shaving my legs, and I will let them grow rather wildly if I have no reason to show them off! Obviously something Jon loves hates with a passion!
I was very kindly sent Wilkinson Sword Intuition Ultra Moisture , to try! The fact its an all in one really appealed to me, because.... I am..... a lazy shaver!

Potty Training Academy // Sticker Chart.

Ru has taken to potty training like a pro! He's had hardly any accidents and is no longer using nappies during the day.

I started him off in Bambino Mio training pants but after a day of a couple accidents he started taking himself to the toilet without any prompt from me.

I introduced him to his Potty Training Academy sticker chart on day one and he was very keen to fill it up, so even when he didn't need the loo, he would try and squeeze something out just to get a sticker.

We used both a toddler loo seat and the carry me potty, but he prefers to do his wee's just like his brothers...standing up. He sings putting out the fiiiire when he's weeing (god knows where he got that from! lol.) 

The first real test was sending him to nursery and seeing if he returned with a bag full of wet pants. I made sure the washing machine was free for his return but when he came home wearing the same outfit that he went in in was such a win.

The sticker chart was a great help with gett…
