I can’t believe this was my first pimm’s of the summer!!!!!!! today is hard!
it’s been a tiring week at work, the little man has been up every night, i’ve hurt my back today & i just want to go to bed!
a nando’s takeaway is on its way & i’m going to eat way too much chocolate, and take myself to bed hoping that i feel fresh as a daisy tomorrow 🤞
Stressful week alert 🚨
we have a cqc visit next week at work, and therefore it’s all systems go making it a super stressful time!! i wish i could split the load with this little man who loves jumping up on the sofa and tapping away at the laptop as soon as me or his dad turn our backs 🙈
growing up way too quick...... can’t believe he’s two next week!!!!!
A mother’s job is to protect, nurture, love and guide her young........ but, what about when you feel as though you are stretched in every way possible and just need to give yourself a little bit of tlc?! i take my arse to the gym!
it’s been a manic few weeks as i was ill, and now the little one has swollen tonsils (which means sleepless nights), all coupled with the fact we have an inspection at work in a few weeks so things are crazy!
i’ve let exercise slip as i’ve been too tired, but i just went and did 30 minutes cardio, and already feel calmer and more energetic - i just have to remember that this is the time i need to take out, and that it’s important for my own sanity!!!
I hate it when this little man isn’t feeling his best 😭
well, actually, that said, he’s been fine in himself, but had a temperature on and off for a few days now which seems to come down with some paracetamol.
it’s so tough when you are both full time working parents and both have important meetings at the same time! he was in bed with me last night, but, this morning was running around as normal even though his temp was high 🤒
after some medicine it came down, so he’s off to nursery, i’m off to work (for now), ready for the call if the temperature comes back.
it’s so hard when they are fine in themselves though?! what to do 🤷🏽♀️
If only i’d known yesterday when i was sipping this cold refreshing cider at the festival in the park, that my toddler would wake at 12.30am!!!!!! not only that, but then proceed to demand to come into our bed, where it was already too hot for both of us to be!
needless to say, he was soon hot and bothered, and no one got much sleep.
this parent life rocks 🙄
What kind of toothbrush do you use for your toddler?
we’ve just started using the @brushbabyuk babysonic electric toothbrush so we are now all matching, and there is no jealousy!
our tooth brushing journey hasn’t been plain sailing though with a toddler, and i need all the help i can get - you can read more in my latest blog post (link in bio) #teeth#toddler#brushbaby#ad
If carlsberg did weekends...... 💁🏽♀️ it’s been such a lovely weekend - i got a few lie ins, had drinks in the sun on both days, got some jobs done around the house, saw friends, and most importantly feel relaxed at the end of it all 😎
how’s your weekend been?! (👆🏽 picture taken at a 1st birthday bbq! 👌🏽)
happy birthday to the organisation that bought me into this world, the organisation that bought my child into the world, and the organisation who has supported me with my career over the past 11 years!
i am super proud to work for the nhs, and although it’s not all glamour and glitz, we do what we do for the patients.
lots of my friends often ask me why i don’t go “private” as the money is better, and i wouldn’t have to work unsocial hours...... but, i just couldn’t do it! i am a proud nhs employee through and through.
it has its challenges, and resources are a real problem, but i wouldn’t change where i work in the world.
here’s to another 70 years...... 🥂
I wish i was on this sun lounger right now 👆🏽
after a great weekend celebrating my birthday, monday saw me take a nose dive and feel rubbish! i went to bed in pjs, socks and a duvet because i was so cold!!!!! feeling a little bit better but have had a busy week at work so haven’t been able to take any time to rest - the joys of being a full time working mum 😔
tried a few early nights - last nights was interrupted by a toddler at 12.30am! 😤
