You did it

When you were told in March your child would be home until June, but you made it until September. You did it. When you sat through that conference call with your baby on your lap. You did it. When you prepared 540 meals for your little one (and they still needed more!) You did it.Continue reading “You did it”

10 things I’ve learnt during lockdown

1. I thought I was a patient person, but home learning has proven otherwise. I’m much more Miss Trunchbull than Miss Honey! 2. Being able to squeeze my family and friends was completely taken for granted in the past. 3. My kids eat A LOT! How did one weekly food shop ever last one week?Continue reading “10 things I’ve learnt during lockdown”

Children… Why three is my magic number

I was the proud owner of two happy and healthy girls, work was going well, we had a lovely house and life was ticking along just fine. But there was just one teeny tiny little thing in the back of my mind that just wouldn’t go away… The URGE to have a third baby. OutnumberedContinue reading “Children… Why three is my magic number”

Life got too busy

Life got too busy, there was so much to do, But how could the washing have been more important than you? “Look at this mummy”, “I want you to play”… “In a minute darling” was all I would say. “Put your shoes on”, “quick, get in the car”… I’d gone from fun mum to theContinue reading “Life got too busy”

So, I’m not going to lie… when I first heard that there could be a chance of my lovely (but lively) 5 and 7-year-old girls being home and homeschooled for the foreseeable future, I was just a teeny tiny bit scared. Trying to work that around my own work, a 7 month-old baby and aContinue reading “Working from home with the little sprogs around”

Saying bye bye to my baby weight for Mother’s Day

Pregnancy… that wonderful (and sometimes not so wonderful!) time in our lives where we feel like we can eat, eat, eat and then eat some more. Well, we are eating for two, aren’t we?  Nope. The bad news is, you don’t have to eat that much more, especially in the first two trimesters. However, thirdContinue reading “Saying bye bye to my baby weight for Mother’s Day”

Welcome to my Happy Mums Blog

Hi there, Thanks for stopping by! I’m a busy mum of a 7 year-old girl, a 5 year-old girl and a 5 month-old boy. Plus, just to add to the chaos… we now have an 8 week-old puppy! So, i thought it would be nice to write (sometimes rant!) about it. I’m a writer, bloggerContinue reading “Welcome to my Happy Mums Blog”

Cleanse your mind, body and soul

January is the month for New Year’s Resolutions, starting afresh, throwing old habits out and bringing in a healthier new you.  But unfortunately that bottle of wine still chilling in the fridge and those leftover Ferrero Rocher winking at you in the cupboard are enough to make anyone’s willpower wilt. Just 8% of people achieveContinue reading “Cleanse your mind, body and soul”
