The toddler diaries #1


Monday 20th March 2017 👧🏼

I'm just lying in bed waiting for my mummy and daddy to come and get me. Wait what is that noise, it's my daddy "daddy" in walks my daddy and I love it when he comes and takes me downstairs for my breakfast.

I love cuddling on the couch with my daddy and watching paw patrol while eating my breakfast, I love my daddy. "Heidi" that's my mummy shouting me that means time to go and get ready for the day. I like my outfit but now it's time to brush my teeth, I hate brushing my teeth - why can't it taste like ice cream?

Mummy dropped me off at my nannies and I get to play with the cat. I know she will be back soon to come and pick me up and we get to spend the day together. There is a knock on the door so I run to answer it with my nanny, it's mummy.

I love being outside, I'm walking to the shops with mummy and we're holding hands and singing songs, this is fun.

I love to play with my mummy we played building blocks and sang nursery rhythms. I started to feel a bit sleepy so I had a little sleep in my Thomas the Tank Engine bed.


We are in the car again going to pick nanny up from work my mummy said. I wish my mummy would stop singing "shhhh mummy be quiet"

Pork chop and cheese macaroni, I'm not eating that. Maybe if I start crying they will take it away, phew after a while it's gone and I can eat my yogurt and fruit mmmmm my favorite.

It's getting late now and I'm feeling sleepy, when will mummy take me to bed. My mummy finally carries me to bed and I love to get comfy with my teddy's "na night mummy, love you, see you in the morning" 

I'm lying here counting sheep, one, two, three .........

Did your little ones have any interesting moments today?

Wednesday 22nd March 2017

I heard my daddy's voice again so I knew it was time to get up. It's nursery day again today and after a few weeks of not wanting to go in I am starting to like going in now. I get to play with all my friends and play in the garden which is my favourite thing to do.

I have played in the sand box today and the home corner, it's so much fun. I enjoyed my lunch which was turkey roast dinner and fruit purée yogurt, but didn't like my afternoon snack yuck sardine muffins but I did eat the cake yum yum. I also played in the garden and jumped in muddy puddles but I think I got a bit too muddy because I had to have my clothes and shoes changed.

My favourite part of the day is when my mum picks me up. She sneaked up on me as I was playing and I turned around and gave a big hug.

I'm getting quite sleepy now because I only had a little nap so maybe if I cuddle with my mummy she will take me to bed.....yes it worked, na night everyone see you tomorrow.

The mummy diaries: #1


Monday 20th March 2017

Arghhh it's Monday morning again, how does the weekend go so fast? I'm sure it was only Friday like 2 hours ago. Oh well at least I'm only in work until 12 o'clock (FYI I only work half a day on a Monday, but unfortunately for me full time the rest of the week). 

So this morning I was actually awake before Heidi, don't you just hate it when that happens missing out on those precious 15 minutes extra of sleep. Also a bonus this morning was getting Heidi changed for some reason she doesn't like wearing certain clothes, sometimes I think a have a twonager. 

Then it was off to work and dropping Heidi off. Thankfully the morning went quick and it was soon time to go home. I love spending my Monday afternoons with Heidi it's just nice having that extra mummy/daughter time, especially when you work all week.

We didn't do much as the weather wasn't the best even though it was the first day of Spring. We did get to go out for a little walk which Heidi loved because she just loves to be outdoors.

My exercising over the past few weeks has been non existent of late with me being ill. Now it's time to get back to it and get fit for summer. 

  • 15 minutes on the exercise bike (while catching up on YouTube videos)
  • Total body workout from tone it up (really recommend these videos on YouTube)
Heidi went to bed without a struggle which makes bedtime so much easier. Now I can chill out with my cup of tea, chocolate and watch Broadchurch.

Tuesday 21st March 2017

Its like deja vu again only this time I am in work all day today 😢 Heidi is also in nursery today and a big plus was she went in with no crying. Before Christmas Heidi used to love going to nursery but after the Christmas break and being off with us both she would cry every time I dropped her off. Last week was the first time she hasn't cried since then. Today she gave me a big wave and went off to play, Sometimes I'm not sure if the fact she doesn't need me anymore upsets #mumproblems.

After work I had my PT lesson which I always look forward to, its a great place to get all my frustrations out and when I come out I feel so much more relaxed. Also sore because my PT works us hard but that is exactly what I need #SoreButNotSorry. I know I will sleep tonight.

Do I have a twin?


Now that I am back from my blogging break I wanted my first post back to be something light hearted and a bit interactive.

I have always wanted to be a twin, a twin sister not a brother I already have two of them. I used to envy friends of mine who had sisters, imagine living with your best friend?

I'm back

As you can tell from the lack of of posts in the last couple of months, five to be precise - I'm back. I needed to just take a step back from the blogging world completely as I had sort of fell out of love with blogging and also had a mind block. I also started a new role in work and I knew it was going to need my full attention and it was going to mean less time for this.


It's only in the last few weeks since things have calmed down in work that I actually sat down and thought about how much I actually missed blogging and the community, especially the Tribal Chat girls.

I just hope now I can get back in to the swing of things and things haven't changed to much in the blogging world. 

If there is anything you would like to see in future posts please let me know. Also I would love to know what everyone has been up to so I can catch up.

JORD Watch review and giveaway

I am one of those people who has to wear a watch otherwise I feel naked - yes naked people! I have always worn a watch since I could tell the time, and even though most of the time I look at my phone to tell the time its more like an accessory.

I was recently luckily enough sent a JORD Watch to review and at first I was a bit sceptical when I heard it was a wood watch. I suppose I didn't know what to expect as I am just use to having a standard gold or silver watch. When I went on there website I was so surprised at the detail and quality of the watch and it was nothing what I had expected.

I chose the DOVER series Koa & Black because I like the look of wearing a masculine watch with certain outfits and its nice to mix it up a bit. This watch retails for £227 ($295) and there is also free shopping to the UK and worldwide. Can I say that the shipping from the US is so worth it for the quality of the product and it doesn't take that long at all.

I loved the mixture of the wood and black face of this watch and it is something totally different that I have never seen before. The presentation of the watch was also second to none, It comes in a beautiful wooden box with a cushion and extra links just incase you need to add some in.

For the purpose of this review I took some pictures on my partners arm as its a Male Watch but as I said above It could definitely be worn as a Women's Watch.

With it coming up to Christmas and you are trying to think of the perfect present for your partner or family member then I would highly recommend a JORD Wooden watch as something unique that they would love and wouldn't already have. All the links for the watch departments are below and if you would like to win a $75 e-voucher towards a watch then please enter the giveaway below. As a thank you for entering you will receive a $20 e-gift card.
