Yesterday morning I was all ready to sit down and write a post about how tiring and not nice my day was on Friday. Being a mummy is the best things in the world and I wouldn't have it any other way, but there are days when you're so tired, when the kiddos are so … Continue reading Not so bad, considering
Most people in my life know that writing is one of my biggest passions and ever since I was a little girl I wanted to be a writer when I grew up. But then I did grow up, and well, life happened and becoming a writer didn't. But when my wonderful Elisabeth was born I … Continue reading Around the corner from Anne Frank
Wow, you know you've been busy when writing is one of your favourite things and still you haven't posted for 5 months! I know! Five whole months without as much as a word.

After a 10 minute session last Friday where we discussed: "this is a banana" and "this … Continue reading Whasaaaaaaaaat?????

Elisabeth never really did baby talk, she was almost silent until she could discuss the political situation in Africa (so to speak). She talked so well that when … Continue reading Where’s mamma?
The first time someone kisses you is always special. I remember the first kiss with my husband, it was in a nightclub in Clacton-on-Sea. This is 14 years ago and I still remember it as if it was yesterday. Elisabeth gave slobber kisses for ages when she was little (you know the ones that are … Continue reading The First Kiss
Today was Elisabeth's first sports day, because she goes to a pre-school which is part of a primary school she gets to enjoy a lot of the events with the big children, like sports day today. It was a great afternoon, the whole school came out at the same time and sat on the big … Continue reading Elisabeth’s first sports day
Me: Morning Jacob. Jacob: Wow! Me: Would you like a drink? Jacob: Wow! Me: Look Jacob, a dog. Jacob: Wow! Me: What would you like for lunch? Jacob: Wow! Me: Night night Jacob. Jacob: Wow! The boy is a genius 😂
