Oooh Halloween

Halloween Balloons Wishful Style Queen

This really is my favourite time of the year. Although as soon as I write that I have Andy William’s singing ‘It’s the most wonderful time of the year’. Sorry Andy it’s not Christmas Halloween is where it’s at for me!

Mother Nature puts on a colour spectacle with greens turning to orange, russet, burgundy and eventually brown. Crispy leaves just ready to be kicked, or stepped on with a satisfying crunch(don’t dare let the thought of trodding possible dog poop ruin that for you!) A slight chill in the air which justifies you buying that beautiful Winter coat and putting on your favourite boots from last year. Don’t get me started on opaque tights, we have a very serious relationship come Winter.

But the thing I love the most is the general silliness that accompanies Halloween. The chance to go outside your comfort zone for the night, whether you’re dressing up as someone controversial, here’s looking at you Trump or a something more old school and generally, well how do I put it, liked, a Witch! Black bag dress optional!

Holiday prep – the one hack you need to know!

Eat beach

What a title. I feel like it needs to be followed by ‘get beach body ready in just 5 mins’. So with that in mind, here’s how to get beach body ready in less than 5 mins! Put on some spf and your choice of beach wear and go have fun! Ta da!

Right back to what I’m really talking about, the pre holiday prep, the packing, washing, sorting, organising, panicking that happens in the weeks and days before you jet off. While I adore holidays, I mean who doesn’t like a change of scenery, preparing for them is not something I can say I enjoy at all. In fact it fills me with dread. Living with anxiety means the weeks leading up to what should be a fun filled time of the year can be torturous. I am someone who has suffered from anxiety for years – this is not a new phenomenon, however post baby, it has reached new heights. What if he runs out of nappies, what if we are out for the day and I can’t heat his food, what if I drop his tin of special formula and it spills everywhere and I’m without, what if, what if, WHAT IF?!! What if nothing. It’s tiring trying to quieten down these thoughts, while simultaneously planning for your trip away. You’re conscious that you want to have everything right, not in a everything has to be perfect sense but you don’t want to upset their routine too, as most little ones are massive fans of routine. Happy baby = happy family.

Living with a cows milk allergy

No dairy

A cow’s what? Yeph that’s what I said when Little A was diagnosed with it. I’d heard of children being lactose intolerant, but never this. What was is, what did it mean for him?

When smug comes to bite you in the a$$

That was me last night, little miss smug. Little A had a great day in creche, followed by a lovely relaxed evening and some great fun in the bath, only a few tears while getting changed for bed. He was tired. A story, head on the shoulder, then the sounds of soft snoring. He was asleep, bang on time and I’d even managed to go to the gym. Just call me super mum. Ha more like super smug mum.

I went downstairs and whittled away the evening doing god knows what as there is still a mountain of laundry to do. I went to bed early thinking, wow we’ve cracked this sleep thing once and for all.

Head hit the pillow, immediate black out sleep.

Waaaaa, waaaaaa, WAAAAAAAAA
