This is a guest post by Karen over at Mothering and Other Stories. She’s got some great ideas for days out in Stirlingshire!
We’ve been going to Turtle Tots swimming lessons for a while now, and getting everything ready the night before makes a huge difference to my stress levels!
A little update on how the kids are both doing in the pool since they have both been at their swimming lessons for a while now. Both of them are loving swimming!
The little man and I just finished our first toddler class with Turtle Tots. When we started this latest block of classes we were having a bit of a blip. But with lots of patience from our lovely swim teacher we had a mini-breakthrough and he is back to enjoying his time in the pool again.
I honestly can’t believe that my baby girl will be starting school next month. Here’s to new beginnings and lots of fantastic adventures.
It is official! I can finally tell everyone that we are Turtle Tots Ambassadors! I have been dying to tell you all for weeks but I had to wait (along with 5 other bloggers from around the country) until the official announcement was made at the beginning of May.
I was nominated on instagram ages ago to do a “20 random facts” post. It was actually quite fun thinking them up, so I thought I’d share them here too. Here they are: I met[…]
The beginning of a New Year always makes me think about my life; where I am, where I am going and my plans for the future. It’s at times like this, thinking about the past[…]
I thought I would write a (big) list that I can attempt to check off over the next 4 years, before I turn the big Four Zero…
I find it quite cathartic, looking back and reflecting on a whole year. I tend to forget lots of things that happen which can sometimes skew my view, and I think looking back really helps to put things in perspective. So here is my 2017!
I was asked to take part in a blogger challenge to find Christmas outfits for the kids from the shops in the St Enoch Centre. So baby boy and I took a wee shopping trip…
I’d like to give a MASSIVE shout out to the truly lovely staff at Briarlands Farm in Stirlingshire. I haven’t ever written about the place before as this was our first visit. I will do when I get the chance.
We’ve only ever been to Bread Meats Breads as a couple before; on those nights we’re out without children, living it up in the city… But I was having a look at the new Bread[…]
We got a beautiful outdoor family photo shoot done by Jo from Mei Photography last year before baby boy came along. Here is a little look at the pics.
There are lots of Christmassy things I’d like to do with the little lady this year to make her first Christmas as a big sister a special one. This is my festive to do list…
Today has been a really weird day for me. It’s the strangest feeling knowing that this is my last day of being pregnant.
Last Saturday was due date. I spent the entire weekend, plus a few days afterwards willing baby to come out. Due date felt like reaching a huge milestone: the end of pregnancy and the beginning[…]
Today is due date. Every day this past week my husband has asked me “Do you think it’s today?” And no, I still don’t. I’ve had a couple of mild Braxton Hicks here and there, but absolutely nothing to suggest that baby is on the move yet…
There aren’t very many things that I really miss when pregnant. Mostly because I realise that I’m growing a human. But there are a few.
I remember last time round I had nothing at all to do except bounce on a ball, watch TV, have a lie down & eat ice poles for the final month of pregnancy.
