Birthday Stationary with Dom & Geri – Review. As we approach the end of January I start to think ahead to L’s upcoming Birthday. Her Birthday is at the end of March so we’re only about 9 weeks away. This year she will be 15 – I can’t believe it, 15 sounds so grown up and mature. Every year I always make an effort to decorate the lounge with balloons and in the younger days when she had parties with her friends I would dress the party room. No matter how old you are I always think it’s nice to have a room decorated and even for a few days afterwards. When Dom & Geri contacted me to see if I was interested in reviewing some personalised Birthday stationary I thought what perfect timing for L’s upcoming Birthday. Dom & Geri have a range of personalised cards, wrapping paper, banners and gifts…

As part of my Birthday present from my Sister on Friday we both went to a local hotel for a spot of afternoon tea. I was really looking forward to some ‘me time’ having time to eat something at a nice leisurely pace, without the worry of taking a small child to the toilet or trying to keep them entertained from getting bored! We arrived just after two and we were shown to our table in the conservatory. We had lovely views and best of all the Bournemouth Airshow was on that afternoon so we had perfect seats to sit and watch the Red Arrows. The service we received was perfect – we had the choice of tea or coffee and we were bought a selection of sandwiches and cakes. We were left to our own devices and to get stuck in but we were occasionally asked if we…

……. and i’ll blog if I want to! The 18th August has been an iconic date my entire life. As a child I would be waiting patiently and excitedly leading up to this date – the weeks and days beforehand would drag. It felt like it would never arrive the day beforehand! Time went so slow. I would wake up on the 18th, full of beans and excitement for the day ahead. We would always go somewhere on my Birthday as a child and I would always have a party on the day itself if not a few days later. I would wake up to (in my eyes) loads of presents and my mantle piece would be adorned with cards from family and friends from far and wide. The phone would start ringing from early morning until late into the evening with well wishers ringing to wish me a…

12 years ago today we entered the most rewarding and the most hardest journey ever …. we became parents for the first time. On this day 12 years ago at 21.59 we welcomed our beautiful daughter into the world. No one can ever explain to you what it’s like to become parents, to have this little person rely on you for absolutely and be your entire world. The love that you have for them the second you lay eyes on them is immense. You want to just wrap them up and keep them safe and protected from any hurt or upset. Being parents has been the best experience ever and all I ever wanted to be was a Mummy. I adore my children and I feel so very lucky and privileged to have them in my life. I wouldn’t change it for the world. This was L only literally…
