I’ve just been far to busy that I once again forgot about Photograph Friday!! Not to worry.. I have this to share this week.

Over the past seven or so weeks we’ve been growing tomatoes from seeds A brought home from school, I’m not the most green fingered person so I was sure death would occure but here we are, weeks down the line and they are growing wonderfully!

My mum has taken them to repot them and bring one back so we can continue growing them and hopefully have actual tomatoes!!! 

Until Next time

I don’t mind a dummy, when I was first pregnant with my now 7 year old I was rather against them, I didn’t think I would need one (I also thought I could successfully breastfeed but that’s another tale), I would see older children with them and it really put me off..

How different was my view after I had my son! He loved to suck, me, my husbands little finger, his own baby hands, anything and everything, I was trying to feed him and my poor boobs were getting cracked and broken because of him being constantly attached to me.. shortly before we switched to formula we got a dummy.

It was a mam dummy, I gave my mum the strict instructions to find one that would be discreet and cute, and mam didn’t disappoint! Three years down the line he still had it but we began the process of saying goodbye to our beloved ‘gee’ (or gii, as my husband spells it). We finally said goodbye after it got a bit dirty and caused his upper lip to get sore, he put it in the bin and it was gone! 

With my second child however, I wanted to get a dummy straight away, mam do smaller sized dummies for smaller mouths which was perfect, I made it out like it was a gift from the older child to the youngest, she was harder to persuade to say goodbye to ‘gee’ (gii) and it took her until the summer before she turned four to say goodbye, we somehow got her to understand she didn’t need it and was a big girl and after explaining things she herself put the dummy in the bin!

I am now here with baby 3, she’s only 1 so I am in no rush to say goodbye just yet to her comfort but I think with my past experiences with ditching the dummy, It will be a smooth transition… I hope!! But they often say all children are different and how one went won’t dictate how the other one will be like!

I don’t have any real tips on ditching a dummy, besides just waiting until the child understands, much like potty training, they will do things in their own time.

Until next time

Wishing she knew then what she knows now…

How is it May already? Goodness I am not prepared for how fast this year has gone! 

We went to the dreaded hell known as ToysRus the other day, purely because we had some vouchers that needed spending before they ran out, K got a Dinotrux, A got a Belle doll and R got some wooden letter blocks as I currently have an obsession with wooden toys… mainly after I won a Grimms Rainbow from eBay..

We also went to mothercare for more toys (do they really need that many?!) as once again more vouchers required spending, just for R this time and she got some more wooden blocks and some rattly things.. I also admired a Bugaboo Buffalo (not allowed one sadly)
For the May day (which is when this post was done) my wonderful husband Mr S is taking the eldest two to their nans for their weekly visit, this usually happens on a Sunday but as it’s a bank holiday and he’s got a few days off, they’re making the visit today.. can’t wait for a bit of me and R time.. hopefully she had a nap so I can crack on with washing (and watching all the stuff I’ve recorded hah)

I hope you all have a lovely bank holiday!

Until next time.

(Actually on a Friday this week!!) 

This week I haven’t taken that many photos with my Nikon, but I did take this photo of the blossom with my phone.

It’s hard to believe that we are so close to summer now, when spring took an age to get here.

Here we are, one week later after my post about not spending for a month (I believe I posted it on a Saturday but going by how my Friday photo ended up on Saturday… ) 

The week started good, I paid my gas and electricity which is £40 and I had my phone bill which is also £40, I then had a planned shopping trip into town to get cat food and other bits of food for Robin which ended up to £50.

So in my first week I have managed to save £50 🙂 I am really pleased with that, all items I have brought have been needed and I haven’t brought anything that I didn’t need (like a bugaboo buffalo… even if I want one badly!) 

I’m excited for next week and how much I plan to save 🙂

Here’s to saving! 🥂
