‘Just keep swimming’ is the adorable Dory’s inspirational quote and although it can be helpful when you’re feeling like life’s got on top of you, I think it could be tweaked a little for mums.
To be honest, we’re not blue, we’re not fish and we don’t live in the sea. Let’s think of something that’s a bit more relevant. What do mums find themselves doing all day, every day…
You’d think considering that my son has just turned four that we’d have got the sleeping through the night stuff nailed…
Granted, we’ve moved on from the stage of rocking him for hours every evening, but do we get a full night’s sleep every night? No.
…shocked that supermarkets are putting Easter Eggs on the shelves already! They’re trying to turn us all into chocoholics!
…feeling smug about adjusting their child’s body clock so they go to bed later and sleep later. Trouble is I’m not looking forward to trying to re-adjust it again!
Newsflash: new research concludes that buying toys for kids at Christmas is a complete waste of time!
Last week I bought my husband a new pair of shoes (good wifey) and when my son returned from pre-school I showed them to him. I was hoping that he’d agree that I’d made a good choice, but in fact he paid no attention to them whatsoever.
All aboard! I’m not normally a fan of travelling by train but when you’re a passenger on the Rathwood Santa Train you’re much more likely to be found singing than moaning.
Unlike the normal rail service there were no delays and after handing over our tickets we were asked if we wanted our cheeks and nose painted red.
At 3 I think E is too young for a spa but he sure likes being pampered!
We may not have put our decorations up yet but as for watching Christmas movies we’re already in the thick of it. Before E goes to bed we’ve been snuggling on the couch and watching something to give us the festive feels.
Last Saturday we were up bright and early to make our way to Citywest for ‘Disney On Ice Presents Frozen’. It felt a bit odd going to a performance in the morning and E was a bit confused ‘Will it be dark when it finishes?’ he asked. Well that would mean the performance would have lasted 6 hours so I sincerely hope not!
…still debating whether to buy a coffee machine or not. It would be much more convenient, but the takeaway cups from Costa are so much cuter than my mugs at home!
…getting a bit confused as to whether it actually is Winter or not. In Ireland it is, in the UK it’s not. It’s like ‘the dress’ all over again.
Who else enjoys reading the adventures of Meg, Mog, Owl and SUPERMAN?!
We read Meg and Mog this evening in an effort to get into the Halloween spirit. It’s been one of my son’s favourite books ever since he was a baby. He’s always been interested in anything spooky and the narrations are so bright and colourful they’ve always grabbed his attention.
You love the ‘Hurrah for Gin’ Facebook page, laugh at the ‘Hurrah for Gin’ Instagram account and are tickled by the ‘Hurrah for Gin’ Twitter account, so the question is… should you buy the book?
Katie Kirby is best known for her hilarious and highly relatable cartoons and the book contains many of them.
