👆🏽 this little monkey thought 1am would be an acceptable time to get up and start shouting mummy!
as i was shattered i bought him into our bed where he wriggled & whined all night because we were in his way 🤦🏽♀️
the coffee is in hand, and lets hope everyone is nice today as my fuse is going to be short!
happy thursday folks 😘
Hands up if you’re a @nandosuk fan 🙋🏽♀️
we obviously go way too often as this little man starts asking for halloumi cheese as soon as we get to the local shopping centre (knowing shopping ends with a trip to nando’s! )🙈
anyone else’s toddler way too middle class?! halloumi cheese, blueberries, houmous........... #blametheparents
Today (12th september) is when we technically start working for free as working mums!
so, may as well put our feet up and drink tea hey?! things need to change and the getting the conversation going about #equalitea is the first step! it’s not like it’s hard enough going back to work trying to juggle it all as a mum and employee, let alone the ever growing childcare costs we pay in this country!! 💷
we need flexible working for both sexes, equal opportunities to develop and climb the career ladder and close that gender pay gap! additionally, make it easier for us all to go back to work by offering affordable childcare options before the age of three!
so - @pregnant_then_screwed here i am having a well deserved cuppa! ☕️ #mumsequalpayday
it’s going to be a lazy weekend for us - i’m still hobbling along so don’t think we’ll get very far!
we got this pop up tent in the sale at @asda last week for £5 which is great for keeping this little man entertained! ———————————————
Morning 👋🏽 let’s take a moment to appreciate these gorgeous floral adidas trainers i picked up in sports direct (!!) last week!
with my back playing up, and me hobbling, it’s a trainers to work kind of day! 👟
📚 new read 📚
i’ve seen this book plastered over instagram this summer so thought it was worth a shot - 30 pages in and i’m really liking it!! i spent the morning in a&e as had back pain with pins and needles / numbness in one leg.... seems as though i have twisted my sciatic nerve when i fell! 🙈
any helpful suggestions for sciatic pain?!
All the yawns this morning..... i went to bed with the mindset of 8 hours sleep, in reality thanks to my lovely boys it ended up being more like 3-4 hours broken sleep, so it really is “good yawning” this morning!
and to top it off, my train was cancelled...... happy monday all!
So lovely to have the ☀️ back for the weekend!
we were back in shorts and t shirts yesterday and out on the @microscooter_official ....... i think the ☀️ calls for the same again! that and a nice long walk somewhere!
if i had it my way i’d have a lie in first - but solo parenting means that it was a 5.45am wake up call, cbeebies was switched on whilst i tried to snooze, but my eye was being pulled open every 5 minutes 😤
Just the two of us this weekend as daddy is away..... let’s hope he’s on his best behaviour! 👼🏼 it’s going to be a chilled out one after a busy few weeks with a trip to the park to meet friends and then being at home..... i’m pooped!! thank god it’s the weekend 🎉
