    A Bit Ratty

    As the title suggests, this post is about being a bit ratty. I had no intention of putting out a post today but when the moment strikes I need to get my thoughts down. It has been a bit of an odd week my emotions have been really up and down. It started off good I made a decision to eat really healthy and workout lots, the healthy eating has paid off but I’ve only worked out twice. This annoys me as I feel like I want to work up a sweat but I’m so utterly exhausted for some reason plus I’m very hormonal (the dreaded time is looming) and…

    Holiday Blues

    Happy New Year! I hope you all had a wonderful Christmas and a super New Year’s Eve. It is the eve before the children return to school and Mr K returns to work, I’ve got to say I am so sad that the Christmas holidays are over – I have the holiday blues. Come Friday, we will have forgotten all about how we lounged around in our pyjamas leisurely getting breakfast and watching endless Christmas and 80s movies. This is the first year that I feel the holidays haven’t dragged, I didn’t get the Christmas limbo last week and I wasn’t looking forward to the return of school. Granted I’ve…

    Life Lately – Chit Chat

    I feel like I haven’t published a post of general ramblings in so long, this is the time I wish I was a youtuber just having a chat with the camera. But, I’m not that confident and cringe whenever I hear my voice on video – yuk! How are you all? I hope everyone is well and have escaped any germs going around. My children have brought home every single virus, bug and infection going in the last 5 weeks, we’ve had numerous trips to Devon Doctors and A&E, antibiotics and around 5 bottles of calpol consumed. Amelie has had time off school due to this and obviously school got a…

    It Really Does Brighten My Mood – Chit Chat

    For the last 20 billion days it has been raining in Devon and I’m not gonna lie, it has really depressed me and zapped all motivation, energy and good vibes. I had to dig out my winter attire after packing it all away when we returned from our holiday, get out the Chelsea boots and find some sort of coat. I’ve not surrendered to the ‘mum coat’ yet I have avoided that but I think I am going to have to get one as I cannot wear a thick parka coat with a big furry hood as I will boil over. There’s nothing to do in the rain apart from busy…

    Honest Motherhood: Sleep Deprived Ramblings

    I’m sat here on a Wednesday evening having just put the children to bed. Mr K has gone to the gym and I am feeling utterly exhausted. For the past couple of weeks I have been sickening for something – constant headache, body aches, sinus pain, that horrible drained feeling – you get the idea. I’ve been living on cold and flu tablets but cannot shake this feeling off. It really doesn’t help that the children have been waking super super early and also through the night. When the clocks changed they seemed to be sleeping later and I thought this was it, I would be getting a decent night’s…

    Chit Chat, Rants and Fireworks

    This post has no relevance to anything in particular and will mainly consist of me rambling, ranting and just generally having a good moan. This week has been one of those weeks, nothing major has happened just little things have wound me up and made me feel super anxious. I’m hormonal as it is and just cannot shake this feeling off. It is like a heavy cloud over my head, I’m tired and grumpy for no reason whatsoever. Things that have peed me off this week have been, my silly neighbour parking his huge work van at the bottom of our cul-de-sac and blocking the footpath. He has done this…
