About Hannah and her Mini Beasts!

Howdy.

I'm Hannah 34-year-old mum to four very lively and very wild boys, married to a bearded fella, we live in West Norfolk by the coast with our 3 Cats Indie, Link and Odin.



Noah - 11yrs old (18.12.07)


 is madly into his Xbox, he's just starting secondary school and is quickly turning into a grumpy teenager.
He's a Scout, is a Green belt in martial arts and also does boxing once a week, which is really helping him build some confidence within himself.

Noah was born at home and delivered by my mum, who is the home birth lead for Sutton and Epsom.

My identical twins Alex and Oscar 7 (8.6.12) are my wildlings.


They love playing Zelda and Minecraft on their Nintendo switches.
They love going out exploring the world and trying new things.
They are also Beavers and go to Martial arts.

They are survivors of twin to twin transfusion syndrome (TTTS)
 they were born at 33 weeks and spent 2 weeks in ICU.

Then there's little Ru bear - 6 (25.4.14)



He has me and the rest of the world wrapped around his little finger.
He also loves playing Zelda and Minecraft, he is at his happiest in the woods or down on the beach.
He has a sensory disorder and we are currently waiting to be re-referred for him to be assessed again.
Like the other three, Ru also does martial arts.

He was also born at home with the help of my mum.

After both the twins and Ru I "ate my placenta"
I did the placenta smoothie and had the capsules.

Since the boys were all born I have suffered 4 miscarriages.



I'm not your typical mum, I'm pretty much covered in tattoos with stretched ears.
 I tend not to dress like your average mum at the school gates.

I have an unhealthy love for coffee, cake and gin.
I tend a lot of my spare time at the gym.
I'm currently studying Arts and Humanities with the Open University.
I have recently gone from a size 14 down to a size 8.


I have Moebius syndrome which is an extremely rare congenital neurological disorder which is characterized by facial paralysis and the inability to move the eyes from side to side.
I lack facial expressions which occasionally can make it difficult for people to see what I'm feeling.

For people who have been around me long enough do say they don't even notice it, but for new people, I'm sure it must be quite strange.
I do get stared at a bit when I'm out which used to get me down, but since having the boys I have less time to notice what others are doing as I'm so busy keeping my eyes on them.
I try not to let it get in the way and I'm as friendly as I can be.

I was also bullied a lot at school, but I think I've only become a stronger person for it.
The boys don't see me as someone whose different, they just see me for me.



We moved to Norfolk in December 2016.

We love finding family-friendly places to visit,
such as farms,
National Trust places,
exploring the woods,
making Dens,
muddy puddle jumping,
walks along the beach,
snuggling up on the sofa to watch a new film or read a new book.
Getting Crafty,
Baking.
...you name it we love it.

This blog is about our daily life and adventures as a family of 6

Pork Farm Board Games Championships

Leading pork pie manufacturers, Pork Farms are one step closer to finding their Board Games Champion with the announcement of their semi-finalists this week ahead of the grand final to be held during National Board Games Week at the end of April.


I'm pretty excited that I've been invited along to take part in the semi finals over in Orpington this coming Friday.

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!


Wilkinson Sword Intuition Ultra Moisture. Why use 3 razors when all you really need is 1! Intuition razors are the first 3-in-1 razors to lather, shave and moisturise in one easy step, giving your skin that naturally healthy glow. Simple and convenient, it's the perfect razor for busy women and mums on the go. Save time and money on s…

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…
