Blogging is dangerous!

October 11, 2010 Leave a comment

Here I am setting myself up with my British Mummy Bloggers badges and stuff, to hear screaming coming from the kitchen, my 3 year old hairing through crying as she doesn’t have the words to tell me what’s happened, the wailing from the back door. That’s right 1year old bambini tumbled out the back door face first onto concrete. eeeeek!!!
I had barely taken my eyes off them.
Luckily Ivy seems to be made of rubber, and but for a little red rudolf nose seems completely fine.

I feel bloody awful though, my poor chicks!! Between Ivy’s grazed red nose and Violet’s big red lump on her head from where she fell on the way home from school they’re looking properly in the wars. I am locking them in today I reckon……they will both get a bag of buttons each though, and tons of cuddles. Poor babies.

National Baby Loss Awareness Week

October 11, 2010 Leave a comment

I wanted to take a moment to remember all the wonderful mums I met both online and in real life in hospital who carry their babies in their hearts and their memories and not in their arms; whose babies will remain as gorgeous little bundles forever.

Thinking of you especially this week, and hoping that we can raise awareness so families whose babies grow wings too quickly can receive the support and understanding they need.

Much love to you all

sleepy tired sunday

October 10, 2010 Leave a comment

after a week of being got up at 5am or before I suppose a lie in today would really have been too much to hope for, however girly-woos are on fine form this morning. I was woken to the sound of each of them saying ‘Ivy’ at each other at about 6am, very cute until I realised it was still dark. bah.

Since being downstairs, Ivy has managed to tie herself into her own toy bin (an ex laundry basket made of mesh) while crying ‘oh dear, oh dear’. She has since spent the morning making a mockery of our childproofing, we are rapidly running out of high shelves to rehome things……
Violet has been doing her F1 car impression, and has run away from her breakfast, and is currently trying to eat a lampshade.

Sundays, at least we don’t have to do…..oh no hang on we’re going out this morning! I must get dressed!!!

just quickly, so I remember

for I no longer have concentration span or ability to remember anything.

We have visited Ivy’s boyfriend Stanley, and walked along the beach. Twas fabulous, I shall stop swearing at weathermen for being wrong about the weather change, a lovely day today!
Anyway, we were discussing Violet’s hearing and communication issues, and the inevitable lack of understanding she has because she can’t hear, and have been thoroughly bullied by Sara into taking the poor poppet back to the drs and looking into getting her ‘statemented’ whatever that means. Hopefully that will put wheels in motion so that when she starts school this time next year there will be appropriate support for the teachers to be able to teach her. Like an assistant who knows makaton.
I also should try and expand my makaton further than what Justin shows me on Something Special too….or at least watch the episodes more than once so perhaps some of it will stick.

Ah who am I kidding, I’m writing this to remind me to do these things, how am I ever going to learn a new language?? I think my tiny brain may explode.

ah how it is all connected

what a geeky evening I have had linking my blog to my new shiny twitter, and linking that to facebook.
I have been tracking down friends and famous people, finding out about this following lark.
But this has to be short and sweet, it’s late after my 5am wake up call (thanks Ivy) so both mine and the netbook’s batteries are running low…

a particularly apt title for this morning

October 8, 2010 Leave a comment

after what feels like an eternity of being woken too often and too early I have been up since 4am. Knackered doesn’t quite cover it. While I was woken by a small screaming child, she fell over again quite quickly, leaving me awake, cold and bored. Naturally now everyone is up and things need to be done I am now shattered and want to sleep, still bumbling about in a dressing gown and pjs.

I suspect most of today will make precious little sense and hope that tonight brings more sleep than last. In the meantime I think doing as little as possible is the order of the day.
