Holiday Chaos

Oh my woolley word, I can't believe how shattered I am as the holidays come to a close. As you may know, 3 year olds aren't funded during holidays so I have only had one day to myself a week over the last three weeks as it's been all we can afford. I am quite embarrassed to say they have totally worn me out! I love spending time with my boys but I have to be honest, I'm really looking forward to them going to nursery and school on Tuesday. I am going to a spa as a birthday treat with a friend to relax!

Magic Moments - What's The Story?

As you know, we are expecting a new little bundle into the Pearce household in October. I thought I would share these amazing pictures with you as I still find modern technology utterly amazing!

I Don't Like That (and other toddler tales)

This week has been particularly wearing on the toddler front. Chaos has 3 year funding at nursery which covers term times. We pay for any nursery time in the holidays which I think is fair enough. Unfortunately, there is a weeks difference meaning that this week wasn't funded even though it is still term time so Chaos has been home...

Reasons To Be Cheerful

Another week has whizzed by and here I am pondering our activities. What have I got to be thankful for this week. Under a blanket of tiredness and the ever threatening return of sickness, some days have been a real struggle, I won't lie.

An Unusual Post

I will be the first to admit this isn't my usual type of post. I was approached by a lady who has this cause very close to her heart. Her story moved me enough to want to share it with you in the hope that it will help others.

Love Letters...

Have you ever wanted to tell someone how you feel but you haven't had the chance for one reason or another?
Have you lost someone special and didn't get to tell them how you feel?
Have you lost touch with someone and have no idea how to let them know they are on your mind?
Do you have an unrequited love that you want to share your inner desires with?
Then, I may just have the solution....

A Letter...

My lovely, lovely girl, 

I have no words to explain the pain I feel in my heart. 

The sadness fell like a lead blanket

Hot tears score lines on my face

I am so sorry I can't be with you. 

My arms want to hold you and hug it all away. 

The distance makes me feel more helpless.

There is nothing I wouldn't do for you. 

Please know that I love you and think of you every day. 

My lovely, lovely girl

Self Care - An Ongoing Commitment

I realise that I have to take a bit more care of myself with the arrival of bump later in the year but surely daily self care it is something that we should all strive towards. After my stay at the Mamas Retreat I felt it was something that I really should start putting into practice and on a regular basis. So here are the things I want or have already started to do for myself.

Mamas Retreat

I have been meaning to write this post for so long as I wanted to share the amazing 24 hours I had with other fabulous, escaping Mums on this wonderful retreat. Held in Cornwall, we had the run of this wonderful house at Prussia Cove

We honestly couldn't have asked for a more stunning location. I think the view took everyones breath away as they arrived and were continually wowed during the stay. Heavenly, is the best word I can use to describe it.

The Theme Game - Animals

The Reading Residence

I love reading through the posts in the Theme Game. The different perspectives people have of the same thing are just brilliant. This week Redpeffer is hosting so nip over and have a look at the other great entries.

Morning Sickness..

OH MY GOD!  I can honestly say I have NEVER felt like this before. I've had three boys and apart from the odd smell that used to turn my stomach, I didn't have any sickness during my pregnancies with them at all. This is a whole new kettle of fish. I have never in my life felt so utterly wretched! I am not exaggerating. WRETCHED...
