2016 was a mad crazy year for us, we went from a family of 4 to a family of 5, lost dear companions and family members and watched parts of the world change political..
What does 2017 have lined up I wonder, I aim to be a little more active on my blog, it’s difficult finding time to write up about events while the children are off school.. but once they are back Robin and I hope to have some big adventures.
Robin has been selected to be a Brand Rep for an amazing small company I found on Facebook, here’s a link to her Etsy page
, she makes memory blankets and dolls, skirts, dresses and bibs! I plan to write up a little review of the blanket she made shortly.
I hope to become more healthy and active using my Fitbit and treadmill, I don’t wish to loose a great deal of weight, the aim is to just be healthy and not restricted myself.
And that’s all really.. I finally upgraded my phone too so blogging and photographs will be a lot easier! Thank you Tescos! Hah
Anyway until next time
I think it’s clear that I am slacking a little with the blogging, I have been so busy… school plays and meetings and of course now the eldest kittens have broke up from school..
It might be best for a little update 🙂
I have done nothing but housework, shopping and looking after a clingy baby all this time hah! Robin now has two bottom teeth and I am sure three and four are on the way too and she’s almost crawling!
The other two have finally done with school for the holidays, both have been 100% attendance which I am super proud of 🙂
Not much else has occurred.. i baked some yummy chocolate chip cookies which I plan to share at some point and I made some fudge for family at Christmas.. I’ll share all the recipes I followed 🙂
Anyway I’m off to continue with some wrapping!
3 more sleeps to go!

It’s been beautiful and frosty here lately, Mr S had a few days off to deal with The Big C and we took the opportunity to go for a lovely walk with the smallest kitten Robin.
Cold but beautiful
So on Sunday 20th November, my mum, Robin and I went to the city of Chelmsford for The Essex Baby Show, I have been hyper about this since I discovered we had one in the county of Essex, I didn’t want to travel into London you see.. and it was great fun!
I actually saved up for a few weeks so I could have some spending money there.. and who could resist lovely baby things?
I got these beautiful little pieces from Fred and Noah
who I actually follow on Instagram.
A rubber rainbow star chew toy as she’s just starting to get teeth and mamas and papas mobile phone (because she’s always stealing mine)
And my mum bought the three kittens winter hats
Of course there was plenty of freebies too!
The plan is to definitely go again next year and get to the more local one the Hertfordshire baby show which is only a town away from me! I am hoping to be a bit more confident next year and snap more photos of the booths and the room.
Until next time

I have seen this a few times across various blogs and I thought it would be a good idea to do this tag too! So..
Here is whats in my changing bag.
The bag in question is this lovely Pink Lining ‘Blooming Gorgeous’ bag that I found on ebay (I now own 3.. shssh)
The basics. a changing mat that came with the bag and this little bag that I think is meant to be used for wet clothes but I use it to store my wipes, cream and anti bac hand jel. Tescos wipes are by far the best ones Ive used!
Nappies! these the Sainsburys size 3 nappies, I used to use pampers but sometimes money is tight and these nappies have been amazing, no leaks and last a long time.
Two muslin cloths, or sick blankets as we call it, and one roll of freezer bags.. only because I forgot to by nappy bags!
And the random rubbish that sits at the bottom, my purse is from a charity shop and considering how big it is I still think I need a bigger one, Baby Lips lip balm, my iPhone 6 which I use to take most of my photos (with my reflection on the screen hah hello!), Nuby baby keys for those nasty teeth, Ziggy Baby dummy clip, a spare memory card, my keys, a MAM dummy and finally my little life line.. my old ipod touch which is always there when Robin falls asleep on those trips up the town.
and there you have it, what is in my changing bag.. not very exciting but I had a giggle organizing what was in there.
A lot less junk than I expected.
