Periods after Sterilisation

Periods after sterilisation

Nobody really talks about periods after being sterilised and I thought I can’t be alone in the fact it has changed so dramatically. Recently my period was over a week late, my breasts were incredibly sore, I had no appetite and to most women this would be a sign that they are pregnant. Even though after Button was born I got sterilised;it didn’t stop the irrational part of my brain thinking “oh my god what if the sterilisation didn’t work?”.

Behind the Social Media Smiles

Behind the Social Media Smiles

Social media can be a wonderful thing but it can also have quite a negative effect on ourselves when we see such orchestrated perfection from others, everyone knows or I hope they know you shouldn’t take social media on face value. Whilst I do try to be honest on my social media platforms there are times where I don’t want to share my ugly snotty crying face when anxiety hits or when I am low, nor do I always want to share a photo of my kids being pains in the arse which like all kids can be they frequently are – mainly for me the little oiks. My life isn’t all smiles and cute cuddles and from scratch home cooked meals but why don’t I post the “real life” shiz? Read more

Ra-Ra’s Nativity

Ra-Ra's Nativity

Today I want to be a proud parent and wife for the whole post okay? Well it’s happening regardless and that is because I want to talk to you about Ra-Ra’s first school nativity! Last year in nursery she got to be a shepherd and enjoyed herself but this time whilst doing “Little Red Robin” with all three years in her school she got to sing and dance and be the “glittering star” which to people who hadn’t heard of this rendition of the original nativity (like me and 00Steve) is basically the star of Bethlehem.

Mooncup – Menstrual Cup

Mooncup - Menstrual Cup

I have been trialling the Mooncup for three months as recommended by Mooncup themselves to fully be able to appreciate the product. Now some of this has got to be with not having to run to the shops to buy sanitary products but also the money you will save oh and the planet since you aren’t dumping more waste into landfills.

Halloween Simpson Style

Halloween Simpson Style

So this post is late up because we have just got the kids in bed from being at a Halloween party organised last minute by one of Ra-Ra’s school friends mum’s. We have had a pretty full on couple of days with regards to parties and getting things ready that she didn’t get chance to go Trick or Treating! So what on earth have we been up too?

Autumn Crafts for Kids

Autumn Crafts for Kids

Autumn is a pretty perfect time for doing crafts as nature offers up plenty of items instead of going out and buying stuff which can be stupidly expensive just for it to be forgotten about or wrecked at a later date. There is something for everyone too! Whether you are super crafty and imaginative or can just about use a glue stick (more often than not that is the limit of my craftiness) there is something suitable for everyone! Read more

Children Suck Because They Grow Up!

Children growing up sucks

Yep that time again is upon us back to school; when you get to a certain age or have a certain lifestyle this doesn’t bother you for years or ever depending on your choices! But for me, 00Steve and many other adults across the country they have children going to school. Now this can be exciting, upsetting, frustrating and just an array of emotions for all involved, but it doesn’t mean it children don’t suck because of it! Read more
