Hello November


This year has just flown by! 
November already!!!!!! that's just crazy!!!!!!

As much as I like the sun and the warmth I much prefer the chilly nights and the rainy weather. (Yes some of you may think that's weird)
I'm a winters child at heart. I adore wrapping up warm, having slippers on and enjoy hearty winter food.

This month we are probably going to be moving into Jon's parents house, as the people buying our house want to be in before Christmas. So we have a lot of sorting out to do....

Making sure I pick out the important things we will need at the in laws and decide what can go into storage.

I need to get in contact with new schools and new nurserys in Minster on sea (that is where we are moving tooo)

We need to rid ourselves of everything we don't want coming into the new house. 

We really have to start planning for Christmas. I've started buying already but there is still so much more to get and do.

I'm planning Noah's 7th birthday party / leaving do, I've decided on taking him and a few friends to a laser quest.

This month is pretty quiet on the family birthday front. On the top of my head the only birthday I can think of is my cousin. 
Next month is where it really gets busy ....it's mine, Noah's, Christmas, then my niece Islas bday
Busy busy busy so I'll have to plan ahead and make sure I have presents for all and remind Jon about lovely things I want :)

It's fireworks night soon and my dad has decided he is going to do a display in his garden, so that will be the twins and ru's first fireworks display, very excited about that .

This month I will be reviewing a childrens story book and also doing my first competition by giving away said book, so stay tuned for that.

Is there anything else you as my readers would like to see me write about?

Halloween fun 2014


So today was Halloween. 

We don't usually go all out as we never really did it as kids ourselves. Saying that it wasn't as big back then as it is now. We should really get with the times.

I have always bought Noah a costume as he's always been into dressing up. This year he had a party to go to so I said id do his face and paint his nails.




He was really over the moon (as was I, I'm sure I earned a 100 cool mum points) by the time id picked him up all the face paint had been sweated away, and he didn't remember if people liked it or not :(

What a Fail, I was hoping for a full report on how everyone was blown away by my skills. 

The twins didn't want to wear their outfits but they did want me do their nails to match Noah's.

Id bought Ru a special my 1st Halloween romper but I forgot to wash it, so he wore a little monster top and his elephant slug and snails tights.

I wanted to join in the festive fun, so I popped on my best looking Wednesday Addams dress I own - standard thing to have in your wardrobe, right???


I can see Halloween becoming a massive thing in our house once the boys all get bigger. We are already a ready made party. I will embrace this and I'q actually looking forward to hosting my own parties. 
Seeing everyone's pictures all over Instagram and twitter has really inspired me 

Hope you all had spooookyly fun day x

Ru update ...


So Ru is 6 months old (excuse me while I have a little cry)
He has his two bottom teeth, his eyes seem to he changing to a hazel colour and his hair has a slight auburn tinge to it. 
He is wearing 9 - 12 clothes and in disposable nappies (which we wear at night) he is a 4+. 

He can sit up on his own 

We are weaning as I'm sure you have seen in pervious posts. 
I'm making his purées and occasionally using Ella's kitchen pouches.
Surprise surprise he does indeed love his food. 


We have a slight crawling movement, isn't spot on but boy does he move!


He has always been very chatty and he rarely is quiet.

He can say dada, which Jon is over the moon about 

He is such a super baby. Rarely cries and he sleeps perfectly. I'm so happy to be blessed with such an awesome baby (obviously the others were all just as awesome too, though I'm sure they cried more and slept less)

Here are a few of my favourite Ru pictures from the last few months.
