An interlude

Crikey, it’s been awhile. Time whizzed past in the blink of an eye, even faster if you’re a sleep deprived mama and before I knew it, bam it’s the middle of October. Lots has happened, I had great ideas for posts, but the idea of writing seemed like tackling  Everest with no training, and I had to get on with the important task of adulting while sleep deprived so I chose adulting, halfheartedly. Thus an unexpected interlude from the blog occurred. I’m sorry.

Little A or the Sleep Thief as he’s now affectionately called wasn’t sleeping. Or rather he was, that is if you allowed him to fall asleep on you while sitting in a chair in his room and then picked him up from his cot when he screamed the house down in the middle of the night so he could sleep in with you. Three in the bed and the little one said… move over I want to lie horizontally on the bed and I’m going to whinge while asleep until I get my way! What do you mean you don’t enjoy sleeping on the edge of the bed with your head on the bedside table?

We’re in the process of resolving that issue thanks to the amazing Niamh O’Reilly from The Nursery. She’s a magician, well not really but she is magic! More on that soon.

Favourites – mostly from June

Whenever I hear the word June my internal jukebox kicks into gear and starts playing Smashing Pumpkins 1979, albeit mid song, funny how words can do that.

I digress, June was jam packed full of favourites starting off with an oldie but a goodie.

I’m a sucker for skincare, some might call me an addict, in fact I have called myself an addict,  I am in the midst of a full blown addiction to L’Occitane Shea Cleansing Oil. I spotted this in store one afternoon, but not wanting to be coerced into buying it by an over eager shop assistant I went off and did my own research. Would an oil really do a good job of cleaning off my make up, without causing spots? Was it going to leave a greasy film on my skin? Would it be relagated to the cupboard for all eternity. I’d used Dermalogica Pre Cleanse in the past but the yearly price hikes put me off. The truth is those price hikes have meant that they’ve lost me as a customer, you can get as good quality products for a better price, even taking into account the sometimes larger bottles.

May Favourites

I missed April, well technically I didn’t, it was a whirlwind kicked off my celebrating Little A’s big 1. That year went by in a flash, as did the last two months, I mean how is it June? Don’t get me wrong I’m delighted it’s June, with it’s longer days, and no I don’t mean actually being awake longer due to the fact the little one is waking earlier thanks to the brighter mornings, warmer air and the general cheery disposition people have at this time of the year. Summer time is just beginning and the BBQ is fired up!
